Obama-Lit: New Novel Fantasizes of World in Which White Europeans Are Stupid Slaves, Gang-Raped by Blacks

By Debbie Schlussel
While a very scant few Obama supporters were classy and gracious about their candidate winning and getting Inaugurated into the Presidency, many others are enjoying the race-lording.
The latest is author Bernardine Evaristo. Like Obama, she’s of mixed race. And her new novel, “Blonde Roots” explores a new version of slavery: where White Europeans are the property of Black slavemasters, White women are regularly raped by Black sailors, and Whites have “inferior brain capacity”:

In the novel “Blonde Roots,” writer Bernardine Evaristo imagines what might have happened if the ships of the triangular trade had sailed in reverse — with white “Europanes” destined for the plantations of black masters in the islands off the coast of “Amarika” and exchanged for rum and other luxury goods headed to the “United Kingdom of Great Ambossa” in “Aphrika.”


While playing hide-and-seek with her three sisters, 10-year-old Doris Scagglethorpe — the blonde, skinny daughter of a cabbage farmer — is snatched from the coast of England, chained to an iron collar, sold for a shiny kettle and two caskets of grog, and shipped to a slave market.
The daughter of a Nigerian father and white British woman, the 49-year-old Ms. Evaristo started out as an actress in the 1980s, starring in plays that she co-wrote for a production company she helped found. . . .
[In her book,] [i]n the city of “Londolo” in the “UK” of Great Ambossa, Doris works as a house “wigger,” acting as a personal assistant to her master Chief Kaga Konata Katamba I, or Bwana.
She tries to escape by means of the Underground Railroad — a network of disused Tube trains — but ends up working on a sugar cane plantation. Bwana, for his part, expounds in an antiabolitionist tract about his earlier adventures as a slaver in the “Dark Heart of Europa” and the inferior brain capacity of the Caucasoi, whom he deems are “not of our kind.” . . .
In a chapter entitled “The Middle Passage,” Doris is bolted in a prone position in the belly of a ship: to her right is a woman who is dragged away at night to be raped by the black sailors; to Doris’s left, for three nights, is the corpse of a 17-year-old milkmaid who gave up on living after being gangraped by captors. “As I was reading that section to the public, I was like, “Oh my God, this is very unrelenting,'” Ms. Evaristo says. “I was quite pleased about that, too. In that section, there is no room for comedy.”

Don’t kid yourself about why this book is coming out now, the week of the Inauguration of the first (half-)Black President. Timing is everything in the publishing world. And if we can have a Black President, why not this fantasy of White slaves working for Black masters? It’s the logical extension of all the sickening race-lording and over-the-top hype we’ve seen continue to escalate over the last week.
And in fact, even though she’s a Brit, Ms. Evaristo is a huge Obamaniac, as she’s frequently noted on her blog–she shed tears at his Inauguration.
Smelly and ripe enough to become a selection for the Oprah Book Club.

And her next novel will be based on a TRUE story, entitled:
“How the Muslims Enslaved Europe and Extended the Khilafa to America”

John Travolta had a movie back in the 90’s with Harry Belafonte, entitled White Man’s Burden. Sounds like the same thing, and that movie was horrible, so this will probably be the same.

Independentone on January 23, 2009 at 1:30 pm

Hope and change? If there’s an element of the Deranged Left unaffected by the inauguration of America’s first black President, its the race hustlers. Victimhood and blaming whitey are memes that are just too good to abandon.

NormanF on January 23, 2009 at 1:37 pm

This is utterly disgusting. This lady needs to look inside her soul. Her derangement syndrome is a consequence of the years of liberals guilting people of prior wrongs. Get over it. If they espouse justice why would they want harm done to innocents? They don’t want justice, the mentally ill deranged, criminal mindset wants revenge. If they had a magic wand they would make this book reality. Every culture, every class, every group of people have been wronged at one time in history. Some more than others. Sure we dont want to repeat history and not forget history, but the goal for a better place to live is to be optimistic of the future and move forward. Sometimes it is hard to see a better place when those who would look selfishly for themselves and sabotage the future.
It is ironic that Martin Luther King wanted to see a day where “I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit together at the table of brotherhood.” This lady’s dream is the reverse of MLK.

She just wants to be a full victim. Must be hard for her. White guilt and black victimhood in one body. :O) Wonder what her white mother thinks of all of this?

Hermster on January 23, 2009 at 2:04 pm

pretty vile
but you have to feel pity for her
she looks in the mirror everyday
and loathes what she sees
she is angry
/too bad so sad

I think that you need to get a case of “Chill Out.” What the writer seems to be doing is writing an “Alternative History” novel. Phillip K. Dick, the great science fiction writer, wrote the book “The Man in the High Castle” that premised an Axis victory in WWII. America was divided into two zones: the east controlled by the Nazis and the west controlled by Japan. Only the area in and around the Rocky Mountains was free.
There have been many alternative novels written. One recent one imagined that Robert E. Lee won the battle of Gettysburg. Science fiction movies and TV shows, like “Sliders”, have imagined multiple parallel worlds.
The value of a work like this is to cause use to see with “new eyes” what others have experienced. That’s always the value of literature.
If you feel particularly defensive in this case, perhaps it’s because slavery is America’s “Original Sin”. If you really want a good discussion of how slavery and racism has affected America, I think no finer work exists than W.E.B. Dubois study called “The Souls of Black Folk.”

Bernardine Evaristo, imaginative? Brutal White Slavery did exist –
In the book ‘White Gold’, author, Giles Milton records the appalling details — gleaned,it appears, from a wealth of historical documents including diaries and letters — of a seaborne Islamic jihad against Britain which lasted for no less than two centuries.
From the early seventeenth to nineteenth centuries, thousands of British men women and children were kidnapped by Arab corsairs and sold into slavery in Morocco where they were kept in conditions of unspeakable barbarism. The astounding thing is that these British victims were not merely seized at sea where they ran the gauntlet of such pirates in places such as the Straits of Gibraltar. They were actually abducted from Britain itself.
Corsairs from a place in Morocco called Sale — who became known in Britain as the Ôø?Sally RoversÔø? — sailed up the Cornish coast in July 1625, for example, came ashore dressed in djellabas and wielding damascene scimitars, burst into the parish church at MountÔø?s Bay and dragged out 60 men women and children whom they shipped off to Morocco. Thousands more Britons were seized from their villages or their ships and dispatched to the hell-holes of the Moroccan slave pens, from where they were forced to work all hours in appalling conditions building the vast palace of the monstrous and psychopathic Sultan, Moulay Ismail, who tortured and butchered them at whim. Most of them perished, but the book records the survival of a tenacious Cornish boy Thomas Pellow, who survived 23 years of this ordeal and whose descendant, Lord Exmouth, finally ended the white slave trade when he destroyed Algiers in 1816.
Robert C. Davis, author of “Chritian Slavers, Muslim Masters” however, presents another picture of white bondage, one no less brutal, repressive and disheartening. This bondage was experienced by Europeans at the hands of North African Muslims. Between 1500 and 1800, dates in the subtitle, corsairs sanctioned by the North African govenments of Tunis, Tripoli, Algiers and Morrocco attacked European ships in the Medditeranean and raided European shores. These plundering expeditions netted hundreds of thousands of captives. As many as a million and a quarter Europeans, according to the author, were enslaved by North Africans.
Neither of these two books include all those taken from the lands of the Slavs, nor includ the girls kidnapped to be used as sex-slaves in harems from Georgia and Circassia, two places where, Muslims believed, the girls were especially good-looking.
Nor do either of these books account for Ian Toll’s recollections in “Six Frigates”
Fear of brutal enslavement by the Barbary Pirates caused the American merchant shipping in the Mediterranean to come to a screeching halt in 1793, once the word got out that there would be no more British naval protection for the increasingly competitive upstart Americans. In Toll’s words:
“American vessels had once been ubiquitous in the Mediterranean. Now, in a matter of weeks, they vanished. Seamen who had braved the most awesome winter gales the North atlantic had to offer were paralyzed by the fear of ensavement in North Africa. Vessels bound for the Straits of Gilbraltar could not be manned at any rate of pay. Maritime insurance premiums doubled and then tripled, U.S. government bond prices collapsed, and merchant houses were bankrupted.”
As a result , the nascent American congress passed on March 10, 1794 an “Act to Provide a Naval Armament” creating the heretofore unheard of sum of $600,000 to build six frigates to help protect our merchant ships off the Barbary coast.
As a result, the U.S. Navy was founded !
Philip Lindsay’s novel “Sir Naked Blade” unfolds the legend of Elizabethan Master John Fox who after languishing for decades in Turkish slave penm rescued 266 Christian slaves from Turkish captivity in Alexandria.
Bernardine Evaristo . . .not quite as creative as she would like to think.

Like her, I wept as well. But for different reason

spiffo on January 23, 2009 at 2:33 pm

Someone wrote a book about a future Muslim Europe, where white Christians were sold in Islamic slave markets. Can’t remember the title. Is that so implausible?

sonomaca on January 23, 2009 at 2:34 pm

Say Debbie,
I know one book that I’d love to read in the “Alternative History” genre, unless it has already been done. Suppose that Judea had not fallen to the Roman Empire in 70 CE. Suppose that it had somehow survived into the 21st Century with the temple entact? What would Israel or Judean be like now? How would it’s history be different.
I know that someone wrote a novel imagining that the state of Israel was located in Alaska rather than the Middle East, but I would be interested in how someone would interpret a state of Israel that continued for over 2000 years.

greenlynn on January 23, 2009 at 2:41 pm

I can not believe the number of moronic books that are being written, sold (and worst of all) read in this day and age … it’s time you sat down and wrote a book Debbie … we all could use a touch of reality and common sense right about now.

Repulsive. I weep for all the trees that die a needless, senseless death.

BanishThem on January 23, 2009 at 3:44 pm

Haven’t we heard this kind of rhetoric by the COBRAS (Coalition of Blacks for Reparations in America)?
“My pastor for 20 years”-Barack Hussein Obama
“I don’t need Mr. Keyes lecturing me on Christianity. That’s why I have a pastor”-Barack Hussein Obama 2004
A pastor of 20 years who supports reparations. Remember Hussein, that’s why you have a pastor? I suppose Ms.Evaristo supports reparations. Does KING HUSSEIN COBRAMA support reparations?

BO is not legally African-American, he is actually Arab-African.

arius on January 23, 2009 at 4:17 pm

a good alternate history book is written by Orson Scott Card, it is call “Pastwatch: The Redemption of Christopher Columbus”. Highly recommend this book as it turns around the whole Columbus bringing slavery and genocide to the New World. He also mixes in real history with his alternate story to make it more enjoyable.

also not fiction but brought to you by the Big O, change you can believe in.
watch it, share it and then think how your going to be paying for this plan.

This has been said so many times by so many people but apparently this does not sink into the thick skulls of liberals.

Another half black person hating the white 1/2. Deranged women write about rape fantasies. She LOOKS mentally ill.
She doesn’t have to write this racist novel drivel. She just has to look at the crime stats to see that blacks are victimizing whites by a huge disproportionate number right now as it is compared to what whites commit against blacks.
I’d bet that she’s a big fan of the Nation of Islam too with it’s space ships and anti semitism.

samurai on January 24, 2009 at 12:50 am

Dream on, Black racist bitch, the world you dream of never has existed, and never will.And if it did, you would get what you wanted, but lose what you had, and you would be nightmarishly worse off than you ever delusioned yourself of being under White “oppression”. Not that,like most Blacks as racist as yourself, you would ever be anywhere near smart enough to realize it.Your ilk automatically suffer the deulsion ,that if Whitey were totally gone or if you live in a 100% Black country, it will be Heaven, when HISTORY and THE FACTS prove otherwise.
White Europeans were pillaged and enslaved by your beloved Arab and Black Muslims,off and on,in various forms from the 700s through the early 1800s – not to mention,the armies of Ghengis Khan and Atilla the Hun. WE’VE BEEN THERE, bitch, not that you’ll ever believe it. And because WE were able to improve ourselves and build civilizations( WE ,not the Black “slaves” ),and your people still have yet to get past square 1( Unless WHITEY is helping out ) that means we’re supposed to apologize and be filled with White Guilt and let you destroy OUR worlds and rape OUR women and enslave US?
Don’t know much about history. But then ,you don’t have to if you’re Black.
WHAT “Racism”?
WHAT “Oppression”?

OldSchoolW on January 24, 2009 at 12:20 pm

Wow, old schoolw, is about as racist as the woman with the book.

Independentone on January 24, 2009 at 3:22 pm

Wow, what’s next? A book about how white people dominate the NBA?

Southernops on January 24, 2009 at 5:06 pm

How’s that economy goin’ in Liberia these days anyways? Algeria? Sudan? Kenya?
The funny thing is, say the book was even dashed with fact…she wouldn’t even be considered “pure black,” or “pure white,” …dare I say “Aryan”? Kind of like that old schlub called Adolf.
So, if I said the author is acting niggerdly about her fantasy novel…am I a “racist”?
Hope and change my ass.
P.S. Just how does a white American, with a Czech family end up with a Cyrillic last name anyways? Hmm…Ottoman empire maybe? …and this tripe is only going to get worse.

SickBoy on January 24, 2009 at 7:59 pm

“Wow, oldschoolw is about as racist as the woman with the book.”
Please. No White could get away with a book like this with a vice-versa plot.And as I stated, she ,like most Black racists, are totally ignorant about the history of Whites being enslaved by other races.
Clearly, the ugly bitch revels in the fantasy of it,and totally wishes it would happen.
In other words:No, she is clearly far more racist than I could ever be.Especially, since Whitey really hasn’t “had the power” to be racist, in at least 40 years.

OldSchoolW on January 25, 2009 at 12:03 am

What a retard! She is even worse than the tarts from the “VIEW”- can we send doctor Phil to the rescue?

sheik yer'mami on January 25, 2009 at 12:50 am

Clearly the alternate fictional history is not an original device, as many have pointed out. So no brownie points there for a “clever” idea.
And the “alternate” did actually happen. Whites have been enslaved in the past, including the Britons the novel uses as its plot device from the same source that kept black slaves.
Indeed, in Islam, slavery is almost codified in that the Koran which demands non-Muslims are inferior, second-class beings, or in the case of Jews not even human.
The worst sin of this book, from the excerpts shown here? It sounds about as subtle as a boot in the face; and the terrible fictional “names” in the Black Supremacist universe.

Jack Bauer on January 25, 2009 at 7:54 am

Only you nutcases on the far-right could expend this much energy reviewing a book you haven’t actually read! You people need to get a life.
BTW, most of the slavers who sold Brits to North Africa were Dutch or Irish.

No Pasaran! on January 25, 2009 at 10:58 am

Perhaps mssssssss. Evaristo is completely unfamiliar with the such books about the Arab/Muslim/Black/Barbary Corair Pirates, enslavement of Whites,from various parts of Europe, that took place,in various forms, from the 700s to the early 1800s:
“The Stolen Village”,by Des Ekin, recounting the Muslim raid on and ransacking of, the Irish village of Baltimore in 1631,taking nearly everyone from it to Algeria,only two of the slaves made it back to Ireland.
“White Cargo” Don Jordan
“Christian Slaves,Muslim Masters”, Robert C. Davis
“White Slaves,African Masters”, Paul Baepler
“Piracy,Slavery and Redemption” DJ Vitkus
“The Barbary Corsairs:Warfare in the Mediterranean”, Jacques Heers
“Slavery,Terrorism & Islam” Peter Hammond
To name a few….

“BTW, most of the slavers who sold Brits to North Africa were Dutch or Irish.
Posted by: the far left nutcase (and drooling) No Pasaran! at January 25, 2009 10:58 AM”
Proof please, as to how “The Dutch” or “The Irish” managed to raid British coastal villages?
At the time, Ireland was part of Britain, by the way. Just another history lesson for another dumb lefty whose education seems woefully lacking.

Jack Bauer on January 25, 2009 at 1:17 pm

Good God people, calm the hell down! Why do the same people who rebuke Rev. Al and Rev. Jesse for race baiting do the same same damn thing and find “racism” where none exist??? Why are the same people who are always making offensive comments about Blacks in their posts now crying foul because they think some book they haven’t read is racially offensive? Talk about hypocrisy!!! This book is a work of alternative history, plain and simple. Is one of my favorite authors, Harry Turtledove, a Nazi or a racist Confederate because he wrote books that show what would have happened if the Nazis won WWII or the Confederates won the Civil War (yes, Old SchoolW, White authors write alternative history novels, including ones with racial storylines, all the time…please get away from the Internet and visit your nearest bookstore).
I read some excerpts of the book and the author really goes into absolute horrors of chattel slavery and the brutality that can occur when human beings propose to capture and “own” other human beings. One of the reasons people can’t get along with others different from themselves is that they never even attempt to walk in their shoes. They can’t imagine what if must of been like for people who experienced the degregation of chattel slavery or went through such evil as the Holocaust in WWII.
This book is not some racist fantasy along the lines of “The Turner Diaries”. The book does not revel in racist joy at the suffering of the main characters. The book shows that, as Dr. King said, “Black supremacy is as dangerous as White supremacy”. When people becomes “lovers of themselves” instead of God and think themselves superior, they can become capable of the most ghastly of brutalities against others.
