“Positional honour allowed white people to experience “a form of pleasure in one’s body which is achieved through humiliation of the [black person].” All whites could extract race-pleasure from black people regardless of whether they performed submission or not. In fact, race-pleasure was enhanced, I argue, especially when a black person refused to perform submission. The brutal reality of slavery was never merely the labour extracted from the enslaved, but rather it lay in asserting ownership over and the limitless consumption of “the energizing capacity of blackness” itself. ” ~ Egbert Alejandro Martina – Geographies of Freedom
Black people’s lives in the netherlands and the Caribbean should never be a costume of dutch white hyper plunder joy. Our pain and sufferation will enforce a mourning of the continuous hatred and hell endured.
