Put Your Money Where Your Whip Was

On my blogroll you’ll see a link to the excellent “Letters of Note,” which I look at every few days.  A recent entry is the “Best of 2012” which included the post, “To My Old Master,” which I highly recommend for its poignant wit.  It contains a few elements I think I’ll incorporate next time I leave my job — assuming I ever have another job to leave.

    Magnificent. it been a long time since I read an eloquent, “stick it up your ass letter.”

  2. 'Nonymous says:

    So you suppose this is a genuine letter, not a script by some Hollywood screenwriter to delight guilty self-loathing white liberals (like you)? You think it’s likely that a slave owner actually wrote a letter to his former property? Only in the movies and in your guilty dreams.

      The New Your Tribune published it in 1886.

      And if you believe Wiki.

      Poor Col. Anderson
      Colonel Anderson, having failed to attract his former slaves back, sold the land for a pittance to try to get out of debt.[4] Two years later he was dead at the age of 44

    • Kim Chee says:

      Do some research, ‘nonymous, as I did, and then get back to us with your thinly veiled racist sneers. Does it upset your view of the world that a former slave could have been this insightful and articulate, let alone modern in message? This says more about yourself than about “self loathing guilty white liberals.”
