Question: You know in slavery days did the black slaves used to rape the white women!?
my mate said the black slave men used to seek out white women and rape them and a lot of them gave birth to children of mixed race and thats where mixed race people first came from!.
my mate said if the woman could identify the ***** who attacked her, he would then be brought to justice - but it was hard to identify them cos they all looked black!.
i dont understand why the slave masters could not control his stock though!. what was wrong there!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

that was prolly the true reason 4 so called lynchings!. everyone agrees that rapists should be punished but i suppose if its a black slave rapist they should get counselling
dont make me laugh - the race card can only go so far!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

The slaves were housed in filthy,cramped outhouses!.At night the owner would come in and rape several women in front of everyone!.Any intervention by slaves meant torture,than death!.

also the owner would have social gatherings,and then for fun would allow all the men to descent on the females slaves for mass rape!.

The children from the owners rapings were treated as slaves by the owner!.

Very rarely the wife of the owner,or other females would be attracted to a slave male!.The male had no choice,as rejection would mean death for him!.As soon as anyone found out,the slave male would be charged with rape (even though the white female instigated) and killedWww@QuestionHome@Com

Usually it was the other way around: white men raping black women!. Almost anything a slave did to better himself/herself (get an education, keep their family, stand up for their rights) was usually responded with a whip or death sentence!. Going as far as rape was very rare!. Most famous black leaders had white fathers (Booker T!. Washington, Frederick Douglass), but rarely knew them, let alone knowing their real age!. Reading slave narratives really opens your eyes to the atrocities that happened, and something we should never forget!.

Hope that helped!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

It was the white slave masters that raped the black female slaves and the child born into slavery might get it easier than the other black slaves because he/she was mixed descent, sometimes they got brought out of slavery by their fathers, yes there is alot of mixed raced kids these days but the majority have white mothers and black fathers by choice and the older generation does not as most likely to have black mothers and not by choice, I hope this helps!Www@QuestionHome@Com

Popular discussion of this: An american novel taught in high schools, 'To kill a mockingbird', where a woman was allegedly raped by a slave!.!.!.At least, she said this to protect her father, who was the actual perpetrator!. Makes you wonder how often something similar actually happened!.!.!.!.

What might be less embarassing for a woman, to say you had consensual sex out of wedlock (or with a slave), or to claim rape!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

It was probably the other way around!.!.!.white men raping black women, and they couldn't be brought to justice!.
