Examining the Unintended Consequences of White Subjugation of Native Americans and African Americans in Alabama

by Deidra Suwanee Dees

 
White Indian Killer called my name
to see if he could accept the blame
for killing off the Redstick men
at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend,

White Indian Killer, itís too late
for you to renegotiate,
Muscogee land was not for sale
now you will always burn in hell;

White Slave Owner called my name
to see if he could accept the blame
for buying and selling West Afrikan people 
under protection of Mobileís steeple1,

White Slave Owner, itís painfully late
for you to resolve ungodly mistakes;
without the comfort of ill-gained wealth
you too now burn in the pit of hell

*******


1 Reference to the coastal city of Mobile in Alabama (a major slaveholder state) 
where white churches endorsed and participated in the buying 
and selling of human beings on the auction block in the downtown center.
