White supremacy is a system. Like all systems it must be maintained and repaired in order for it to function properly.

As America makes its slow attempts at progression towards evolving into a truly free and equal society, this system feels threatened from time to time.

Birth rates among minorities are outnumbering Whites, shifting the paradigm in which Whites will eventually be the minority; Black women are earning higher education degrees at soaring rates; and the internet has provided a means for many minorities to receive perspectives on information, education, and news stories.

The flow of information is no longer solely controlled by the Eurocentric perspective which dominated and narrated minorities’ thought processes for so long.

All of these things provide a threat to a system of White male supremacy.

The Willie Lynch letter was rumored to begin its circulation in the 1700’s in order to break slaves psychologically and keep them under this systems control.

It described a method for maintaining this control, that if done properly, would last roughly 300 years. This is an excerpt from the document :

“Nature had provided for this type of balance. We reversed nature by burning and pulling a civilized nigger apart and bullwhipping the other to the point of death, all in her presence.

By her being left alone, unprotected, with the MALE IMAGE DESTROYED, the ordeal caused her to move from her psychologically dependent state to a frozen, independent state. In this frozen, psychological state of independence, she will raise her MALE and female offspring in reversed roles.

For FEAR of the young male’s life, she will psychologically train him to be MENTALLY WEAK and DEPENDENT, but PHYSICALLY STRONG. Because she has become psychologically independent, she will train her FEMALE offsprings to be psychologically independent.

What have you got? You’ve got the nigger WOMAN OUT FRONT AND THE nigger MAN BEHIND AND SCARED. This is a perfect situation of sound sleep and economics.”

With that, is this a renewal or is it a reboot of an old program used to keep a psychological grip on the Black community?

Are the Trayvon Martins ’ and Jordan Davis ’ a way to perform this type of act on a national public stage in order to create the same state of fear in young black males?

Although the Willie Lynch letter has become folklore among the black community, the psychological and social problems it describes are very real.

In order to control us, they must alter us… or delete us.
