Candace Owens and her enthusiastic apologist Shtick

 

“To understand the meaning of slaves as contested terrain is to set the stage for an appreciation of the problem of Nat Turner’s name. It is best to begin with the recognition that legally, in nineteenth century Virginia, as in virtually all slave societies, a slave had no surname. This was no trivial matter. The denial of a legal family name was one of the most powerful symbolic ways in which masters asserted their dominance while simultaneously affirming the slavish condition of the people they owned. One distinguishing feature of slavery, in the minds of masters, was that a slave had no binding legal relationship with kin. Enslaved husbands and wives and enslaved children, could make no legal claims on each other.”
