“Malcolm [X] was one of the most beautiful and one of the most gentle men I met in all my life. He asked the boy a question which I now present to you: If you are a citizen, why do you have to fight for your civil rights? If you’re fighting for your civil rights, that means you’re not a citizen. In fact, the legality of this country has never had anything to do with its former slaves. We are still governed by the slave codes.”
—  James Baldwin on Malcolm X, 1979.

The “White” Slave Children of New Orleans | 1860s

Isaac and Rosa 1863. Rosa is mixed race ancestry. Both were former slaves. Historic photos of “white” slaves series 1of 5

These cards were sold in 1863-1864 to help raise money to pay for schools for emancipated slaves in New Orleans. The organizers realized that the sympathies that people would have for children who looked white but had been slaves was going to be greater than the sympathy they might have for black-skinned children.

So white folks cared more about the poor lil white passin children than the humanity of Black people who were being tortured beyond respite

Not surprised.
