The Context of White Supremacy hosts the 2nd study session on Vincent Woodard's The Delectable Negro: Human Consumption and Homoeroticism within US Slave Culture. Mr. Woodard passed away in 2008, but his work was posthumously published in 2014. NYU Press describes the void this book written to fill; "Scholars of US and transatlantic slavery have largely ignored or dismissed accusations that Black Americans were cannibalized." Woodard excavates primary sources, like the writings of Frederick Douglass and Harriet Jacobs, as well as antebellum black newspapers and slave advertisements. Last week's session provided a comprehenisve outline of what The Delectable Negro intends to cover. There was a particular emphasis on the sexual and exploitative environment of the plantation, the colony, the world. The introduction assertively concludes that enslavement and colonization of dark people was a sexually gratifying experience for Whites. Male and female black bodies were literally and figuratively devoured. Many themes explored in this book are staple elements of White culture, visible in the 21st century - like convicted serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer or the delicious "black man cookies". #AnswersForMiriamCarey INVEST in The COWS - http://paypal.me/GusTRenegade CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p
