  • Slavery In George Fitzhugh's Report

    The slave master punishing the slave for every infraction, degrading the humanity of the slave to an almost unrecognizable point. Slaves would often resent the masters who treated them so cruelly. Fitzhugh writes, “the relations of master and slave is one of mutual good will… his [the slave master] whole life is spent in providing for the minutest wants of others, in taking care of them in sickness and in health” (3). Fitzhugh displays a questionable premise. He suggests that because a slave master has a relationship with his slaves, the master then cares for all people and their wants. Meanwhile he makes irrelevant connections, suggesting that the only people who care for others own slaves. Not to mention, this is still an account that has no evidence to support it and contradicts most of the events told by slaves. For example, Douglass writes, “ when I could stand no longer, I fell… he came to the spot… asked me what was the matter. I told him as well I could, for I scarce had strength to speak. He then gave me savage kick to the side, and told me to get up” (77). This is the relationship based on mutual good will that Fitzhugh speaks about. The master kicking Douglas is the one Fitzhugh claims cares for his slave and the wants of the sick and healthy, yet here he is kicking a slave he doesn't even own while the slave lies on the ground sick and…
