So one of my biggest pet peeves about the Djano movie, was many white people's denial that slave owners' wouldn't make slaves fight to the death because they meant money to them. WRONG.

It actually makes me burn inside when I hear this as an argument. The fact that you can enslave someone means you could care less about what they bring to you money wise. But that's what they say.

So here is a slave narrative that proves them wrong from Slave Narratives: A Folk Hostory of Slavery in the United States:

Interview with Wiley Childress
808 Gay street
Nashville Tenessee

"I'se 83 y'ars ole en wuz bawn a slave. Mah mammy b'longed ter de Bosley's en mah adaddy b'longed ter de  Scales".

Skipping to the excerpt regarding fighting:

"De only story dat I member mah people tole me 'bout wuz on Fedd, a slave on de next plantation. He wuz a big man en wuz de strongest man neah dat part ob de kuntry. He wouldin' 'low nobody ter whup 'in. De Marster framed 'im by tellin' 'im ter bring his saddle hoss en w'en he kum wid de hoss seveal men 'peahrd en told Fedd dat dey wuz gonna whup 'im. He struck one ob de mans so hahd dey had ter hab de doctuh. De Marster said let 'im 'lone he's too strong ter be whup'd. I'll hab ter shoot 'im. One time Fedd rn 'way en de white white men what he stopped know'd he wuz a good fighter en made a $250.00 bet dat nobody could lick 'im. A n*gger fum de iron wuks fought Fedd en Fedd won. De iron n*gger was kilt right dere."

We still distrust one another

I thought it was true.
It wasn't the first time I heard of it either.
I read about it in other novels and other things but couldn't directly remember where.

But even as a plot device it didn't seem far fetched in the movie.
Slave owners were depraved ppl.

Werent t some posters saying it was QT making ish up and going out of bounds?

Said yall were giving QT too much credit

These white folks basically saw black people as animals that could do their biddings so making them fight one another to death was not beyond them
