Its the nineteen century, and I am a poor old colored man that doesnt even have the mind to write this letter because I dont know how to write well by the lack of my education, and I dont even want to remember, let me explained this to you in this way so you get it quickly, 90 years ago I was reading this two poems named Slavery, a poem and To the Ladies that I found on one of the books of Ms. Lady Spears (R. I. P), the ex-Madam of the house in which I worked, before her abruptly death caused by her husband.
Here they explained that colored people and women in this two poems are compared equally too each other and placed as a race in which men have to control over them and treat them how he wants too. Women during the eighteenth century no matter if she was independent and wealthy, if she wanted to divorce from her husband it was not permitted. Meanwhile slaves no matter how intelligent or respectful and friendly they were, never would be able to be free from their owners.
Telling this too you hearts me so much because I am realizing that I was a total coward in permitting Mr. Timberlake treat Ms. Spears how he did it. Ms. Spears was a lovely young talented girl, who always had the desire to dance because it was her inner passion that kept her alive, she always invited me, meanwhile her husband was not in the house, to go and watch her move. We kept doing it during 3 entirely months until one dreadful night Mr. Timberlake catch us. He hitted her so hardly that she was claiming for mercy. I was so shocked by the terrible scene that I didnt knew what to do.
Then with all my strength I stood and Hit him so hard until he became unconscious. Ms. Spears began to say this lines from the poem that filled her with pride and glory to fight for her right and that it was going to be the phrase that was going to inspire many other young girls and slaves too: Value yourself, and man despise: You must be proud, if youll be wise. And began to hit him so hard that I thought she was going to kill him. Suddenly the policeman entered the room and stopped her. The next day she was taken to prison and to a trial. Everybody looked at her strangely, with hate, and horror. She began to defend herself telling the jury what she thought from the position of man during that time.
Telling that the word master is used to describe the man of the house who controlled over the others, abusing them physically and mentally, quoting a example in poem Slavery that pronounced the phrase in line 38: Your sum of glory boasts a like amount what it is even worst is that during that time to hit a woman or treat slaves like animals it was as normal as now a days a woman getting divorce in others word it was permitted by the law, a perfect example is line 6, in the poem To the ladies: And man by law supreme has made
Both woman and slave had to obey their owners and if not any kind of disrespect would tear up apart their agreement. A perfect example is in the poem To the Ladies in line 12-13: Will the nuptial contract break. Like mutes, she signs alone make All the women in the room began to apoyarla. And claimed for her freedom. Meanwhile men were so angry that they were trying to hit theirs wife to control them. The jury, a hearted man, couldnt believe the behavior from the people and realized in what kind of circus they were living. So he decided that Ms. Spears would be free from charges.
But her freedom didnt last long because her husband was so furious that killed her. That was the last time a woman was treated like a animal, with the help off a young girl named Ms. Chirstina Aguilera who became the president of the new organization in fighting control over woman and slaves. Poisoning the mind of the people with reasoning and intellectual powers saying a phrase from Slavery, a Poem- line 9,10,11. No: they heads to think, and hearts to feel, And souls to act with firm, though erring, zeal; Fort hey have keen affections, kind desires, Love strong as death, and active patriot fires..
Now I stand in front from Ms. Spears house and begin to remember all her sexy moves that made her fight for what was going to be a new revolution of freedom for all women and slaves, just if I could have stop the bullet that hit Ms. Spears. But well the only thing I know that makes her happy up in heaven is that I was the promoter of a new liberal partido for the slaves in conjunto with my dear wife Christina who was Britneys successor and we always repeat her words that fills with proud and strength our hearts: Value yourself, and man despise: You must be proud, if youll be wise.
