The Sad Truth

294 years ago Willie Lynch of the infamous "Willie Lynch Letter: The Making Of A Slave" read his manual to those who were present that day in the Virginia Colony. In his letter Lynch spoke about how if his procedure is used correctly then "It will control the slaves for at least 300 hundred years". As of right now the year is 2006 and the effects are still felt and it is not even 300 years, reading Willie Lynch's letter you hear some African American/Black people say that they get mad but to me a lot of it's the truth and its sad to say that we as Black people do it to each other. So far the life I have lived I can honestly say that Black people are the most self-hated people in the world. You can look at every race and see that there is some type of cohesion between them. White people are a great example, they may hate each other but if something goes wrong to were they may lose some power, they will come together to stop the force or those people from prospering. Asian and Hispanics those two races are probably the most independent cultures that will look out for each other. But Black people we sell each other out in a heart beat as long a we (the individual) are taken care of. Back to Willie Lynch, every versus tandem he has put together is that of a problem in the Black society: Old Male vs. Young Male, Male vs. Female and the age old battle of Light Skinned vs. Dark Skinned. The Old Male vs. Young Male is not so much of a problem because there will always be some type of generation clash, but the other two are somewhat of a problem. In the case of Male vs. Female due to Willie Lynch I will say that it is bitter sweet.
In the part "The Breaking Process Of The African Woman" Lynch describes of ways to destroy the male image of the Black man so the Black Woman herself will become independent and she will raise her offspring in reversed roles. That means the Mother will make the son mentally weak, dependent, but
