This speech was written and delivered by Willie Lynch on the bank of the James River in the colony of Virginia in 1712.
Lynch was a British slave owner in the West Indies. He was invited to the colony of Virginia in 1712 to teach
his methods to slave owners there. The term “lynching” is derived from his last name.
[beginning of the Willie Lynch Letter]
Gentlemen. I greet you here on the bank of the James River in the year of our Lord one thousand seven
hundred and twelve. First, I shall thank you, the gentlemen of the Colony of Virginia, for bringing me here. I
am here to help you solve some of your problems with slaves. Your invitation reached me on my modest
plantation in the West Indies, where I have experimented with some of the newest, and still the oldest,
methods for control of slaves. Ancient Rome would envy us if my program is implemented. As our boat
sailed south on the James River, named for our illustrious King, whose version of the Bible we cherish, I saw
enough to know that your problem is not unique. While Rome used cords of wood as crosses for standing
human bodies along its highways in great numbers, you are here using the tree and the rope on occasions. I
caught the whiff of a dead slave hanging from a tree, a couple miles back. You are not only losing valuable
stock by hangings, you are having uprisings, slaves are running away, your crops are sometimes left in the
fields too long for maximum profit, you suffer occasional fires, your animals are killed. Gentlemen, you know
what your problems are; I do not need to elaborate. I am not here to enumerate your problems, I am here to
introduce you to a method of solving them. In my bag here, I HAVE A FULL PROOF METHOD FOR
CONTROLLING YOUR BLACK SLAVES. I guarantee every one of you that, if installed correctly, IT WILL
CONTROL THE SLAVES FOR AT LEAST 300 HUNDREDS YEARS. My method is simple. Any member of
your family or your overseer can use it. I HAVE OUTLINED A NUMBER OF DIFFERENCES AMONG THE
SLAVES; AND I TAKE THESE DIFFERENCES AND MAKE THEM BIGGER. I USE FEAR, DISTRUST
AND ENVY FOR CONTROL PURPOSES. These methods have worked on my modest plantation in the
West Indies and it will work throughout the South. Take this simple little list of differences and think about
them. On top of my list is “AGE,” but it’s there only because it starts with an “a.” The second is “COLOR” or
shade. There is INTELLIGENCE, SIZE, SEX, SIZES OF PLANTATIONS, STATUS on plantations,
ATTITUDE of owners, whether the slaves live in the valley, on a hill, East, West, North, South, have fine
hair, course hair, or is tall or short. Now that you have a list of differences, I shall give you an outline of
action, but before that, I shall assure you that DISTRUST IS STRONGER THAN TRUST AND ENVY
STRONGER THAN ADULATION, RESPECT OR ADMIRATION. The Black slaves after receiving this
indoctrination shall carry on and will become self-refueling and self-generating for HUNDREDS of years,
maybe THOUSANDS. Don’t forget, you must pitch the OLD black male vs. the YOUNG black male, and the
YOUNG black male against the OLD black male. You must use the DARK skin slaves vs. the LIGHT skin
slaves, and the LIGHT skin slaves vs. the DARK skin slaves. You must use the FEMALE vs. the MALE,
and the MALE vs. the FEMALE. You must also have white servants and overseers [who] distrust all Blacks.
But it is NECESSARY THAT YOUR SLAVES TRUST AND DEPEND ON US. THEY MUST LOVE,
RESPECT AND TRUST ONLY US. Gentlemen, these kits are your keys to control. Use them. Have your
wives and children use them, never miss an opportunity. IF USED INTENSELY FOR ONE YEAR, THE
SLAVES THEMSELVES WILL REMAIN PERPETUALLY DISTRUSTFUL.
Thank you gentlemen.
This will probably go over your head, but I pray that it don’t, if you still think that the dislike and distrust that you have in your heart for your fellow brother or sister is genuine, you were rather programmed to, it was taught to you, if you don’t care then serve your purpose you devil, go ahead and kill your fellow brother or sister for satan, after reading this you can’t blame Willie Lynch for your hate no longer, you’re pure evil if you proceed to murder your Kin for Jordans and pennies on the dollar…. If you still got some love in you, DeLynch Yourself! I’m Sleep Tho! -Pip! ZzzZzzz…

I’m Pharaoh Pip, I'm a syndicated blogger for Witish. I’ve been writing pretty much all of my Life, everywhere that I've gone, all that I’ve seen, things that I’ve heard, things that I've experienced, felt and thought of--all goes in to my writing process. I’m constantly writing and jotting down ideas & concepts in my head, a lot of that data is stored for long periods of time before they ever turn into rhythmic words in a sentence. Therefore the process of writing is always therapeutic for me; to get those things off of my chest into existence is like sharing my WiFi connection with you, that’s why my writings are somewhat all over the place subject matter wise. I don’t consider myself the quote end quote this type of writer, that only writes this type of way, I just like to write from the heart. What ever God puts on my Spirit the heaviest, I write about.
