Old Photos Frustrate Me

Because that’s all I can know: the photo.

Gentleman with two of his servants

I look at this one. The guy on the left clearly is not happy at all. The man on the right has a dignity that just shines. He is also obviously older than the seated white man.

And that white man. Not facing the camera. Why?

And how could he ever believe that because of his skin color he was justified in the eyes of God to subjugate other human beings?

The collection begins here.
