The effectiveness of the Willie Lynch philosophy is in no way dependant on the authenticity of the physical speech or the historicity of william Lynch himself. In fact Mr. Lynch is indeed a personification and synecdoche for a philosophy that predates him by thousands of years.
Is there one suggestion or tactic in the speech which whites have not put to full utilization? Right down to tying a Black man to two horses and ripping him apart in front of his wife and children - whoever wrote the speech had a wealth of fully documented historical events to draw from.
So debunking the exoteric story as a myth in no way takes from the importance of this speech. In fact Willie Lynch is probably more effective as a myth than he would be if this were an actual isolated man writing an isolated speech.
I totally agree. I think the letter symbolizes the ideology of the time. You can't refute that.
Truth stranger than Fiction*
This is a interesting point, however what is the point? All of the thousands of African Amerikkkan "Men and Women" "Lynched"?! !
How did hanging become "Lynching"? The mentality it took to throw a "Picnic" with a "Circus" atmosphir with sadistic BBQ pits with food to sell the (whites only) hungry mobs, while the whole (white-racist) family came out for the (entertainment) "Lynching" of your (Black) Ancestors is the only point that is. Damb the mind, actions and the letter or lack there of, makes "No" difference, the "Facts' still remain the "Same". Willie Lynch is,... George Bush, KKK, FBI, ADL, CIA, USA etc.
This is true, brotha Moorf. Just because he said there is no record doesn't mean there is none. I've heard people try to say there was no slavery. It doesn't really matter one way or the other since the ideology is still there. what matters is in the minds of those who think it matters and will return to the way they were before they read about Willie Lynch.
This one is real:
King Leopold's 1883 Letter to Colonial Missionaries in the Congo
"Reverends, Father, and Dear Compatriots:
The task that is given to us to fulfill is very delicate and requires much tact. You will go certainly to evangelize, but your evangelization must inspire above all Belgium interests.
Your principal objective in our mission in the Congo is never to teach the nigguz to know God. Thus they know already. They speak and submit to a Mungu, one Nzambi, one Nzakomba, and what else I don't know. They know that to kill, to sleep with someone else's wife, to lie and to insult is bad.
Have courage to admit it; you are not going to teach them what they know already. Your essential role is to facilitate the task of administrators and industrials, which means you will go to interpret the gospel in the way it will be the best to protect your interests in that part of the world.
For these things, you have to keep watch on disinteresting our savages from the richness that is plenty in their underground. To avoid that they get interested in it, and make you a murderous competition and dream one day to overthrow you.
Your knowledge of the gospel will allow you to find texts ordering, and encouraging your followers to love poverty. Like happier are the poor because they will inherit the heaven and it's very difficult for the rich to enter the kingdom of God.
You have to detach from them and make them disrespect everything which gives courage to affront us. I make reference to their Mystic System and their war fetish - warfare protection - which they pretend not to want to abandon, and you must do everything in your power to make it disappear.
Your action will be directed essentially to the younger ones, for they won't revolt when the recommendation of the priest is contradictory to their parent's teachings. The children have to learn to obey what the missionary recommends, who is the father of their soul. You must singularly insist on their total submission and obedience, avoid developing the spirits in the schools, teach students to read and not to reason.
There, dear compatriots, are some of the principles that you must apply. You will find many other books, which will be given to you at the end of this conference. Evangelize the nigguz so that they stay forever in submission to the white colonialists, so they never revolt against the restraints they are undergoing.
Recite every day - "happy are those who are weeping because the kingdom of God is for them." Convert always the blacks by using the whip. Keep their women in nine months of submission to work freely for us. Force them to pay you in sign of recognition - goats, chickens or eggs - every time you visit their villages. And make sure that nigguz never become rich. Sing every day that it's impossible for the rich to enter heaven.
Make them pay tax each week at Sunday mass. Use the money supposed for the poor, to build flourishing business centres. Institute a confessional system, which allows you to be good detectives denouncing any black that has a different consciousness contrary to that of the decision-maker.
Teach the nigguz to forget their heroes and to adore only ours. Never present a chair to a black that comes to visit you. Don't give him more than one cigarette. Never invite him for dinner even if he gives you a chicken every time you arrive at his house."
(The above speech, which shows the real intention of the Christian missionaries in Africa, was exposed to the world by Moukouani Muikwani Bukoko, born in the Congo in 1915, and who, in 1935 - while working in the Congo - bought a second-hand Bible from a Belgian priest who forgot the speech in the Bible. (Dr. Chiedozie Okoro)
The principles of King Leopold are still in operation today in the Black church. I could send this to the Black christians I know and they will recognize it point for point but like the jews hated Jesus for telling them the truth, they will also hate me. These are people who read through the bible five times a year. They know what's up. So their ignorance is willful.
