Another Black History Moment Hannah, Old Hickory And Two Mules
President Factual Note
Old Hickory & Hannah His Slave
Get His Face Off The $20.00 Bill
He Was Nobody’s American Hero
He Treated All Black People Like There Were Zeros
Andrew Jackson, Old Hickory, loved using the hickory whip on his slaves. In addition, it is said that Andrew Jackson fathered a child with one of his loyal female slaves "Hannah". Hannah, who believed Jackson was more father than a master. Right, your father owned you and could do with you as please and whipped you with a lash if he thought you were being insolent. Yeah, that's my kind of daddy. Her white daddy used her as his concubine. Hannah was simply property and was so subconsciously conditioned in her servitude to Andrew Jackson that she accepting whatever treatment befell her. Although, the paternity of Hannah's child could never be proven. I believe that it is most likely true and she was used as sexual property just as Sally Hemings was Thomas Jefferson's personal sexual property. Just how many these so-called leaders, or American founders treated our black ancestors as no less than cattle? Using cattle prods, or leather whips simply because they knew they could?
My daddy once told me this story: when he was a young man he was doing some work in the hot summer field of a white farmer. He was plowing that field with 2 mules. In the blazing heat this man came out and asked my dad to make sure he gave water to the mules. The man answered sternly when my dad asked for water, boy you know your kind can work without water but the mules need the water. That was the very last time my daddy worked the fields in Virginia. Virginia, the state which claims the name birthplace of presidents. I purposely shielded Jackson's face as he shielded just as he attempted to shield his deed. Another Black History Moment of truth.
