But let me very briefly (1 sentence or 2) tell you about the other three images I'm researching. B4 I tell you about my activism work!
This myth supported *false* claims that Black slave women were responsible for the horrific sexual abuse they endured.
BW, like the sugar plantation, were violently penetrated, forced to reproduce etc.
White male masters were therefore absolved from their treacherous acts of true violence.
The Sambo Stereotype:
Sambo is the male counterpart of Mammy. He is Uncle Tom (or perhaps #UncleBens ?) other words include c**n, or pickaninny (with watermelon 😫)
Sambo was seen as backward, naturally lazy and therefore *reliant* on the white man.
I compare this submissiveness to the controlling of the land (land ownership)
