Publisher's Summary

The Willie Lynch Letter and the Making of a Slave is a study of slave making. It describes the rationale and the results of Anglo Saxon's ideas and methods of insuring the master/slave relationship. The infamous Willie Lynch letter gives both African and Caucasian students and teachers some insight, concerning the brutal and inhumane psychology behind the African slave trade. The materialistic viewpoint of Southern plantation owners that slavery was a business and the victims of chattel slavery were merely pawns in an economic game of debauchery, crossbreeding, interracial rape and mental conditioning of a negroid race, they considered subhuman.
Equally important is the international nature of the European economic, political and cultural climate that influenced the slave trade. Within the time scale of African History, it was a relatively short period, a mere one and a half centuries from the most intensive phase of the Atlantic slave trade to the advent of European administration and dominance. Long before that the Slave Coast had been chartered by the Portuguese and the people off the area west of Benin, between the Volta River and Lagos, European traders traced a cultural history which linked them with the earliest Yoruba settlements to the north and eastern borders of Africa.

If true, then mind opening

I've heard this letter is a fake as the language used does not correspond with the language that was.
However if it is a genuine letter then this book is an amazing insight to the psychological breakdown of the black man from white supremacy and facets of how man as a whole are broken down and enslaved today are recognised.
This book give step by step instructions on how to produce an economically viable slave with justifications for inhumane behaviour towards them due to their skin colour, comparing them to wild horses of no use to anyone if untrained.
A book definitely worth listening to regardless of skin colour.
