About this deal

Here, the slave trade is reversed, with blak Aphrikans capturing, selling, and enslaving whyte Europanes to work on distant plantations. Some said that the guns the greedy aristocrats received in exchange for slaves encouraged them to start more wars just to meet the demand of the slave traders who wanted a yearly increase in exports. La conformazione del cranio negroide ha dunque prodotto i seguenti tratti: ambizione, motivazione personale, ingegnosità, autodisciplina, coraggio, integrità morale, illuminazione spirituale e responsabilità collettiva.

The slave raiders, it seemed, were in cahoots with aristocrats like Percy and the middlemen who supplied them with slaves for shipment overseas. Immigration is obviously a big part of the plot and there are many references to this which are considered alongside the class structures in the societies featured.

Blonde Roots brings the shackles and cries of long-ago barbarity uncomfortably close and raises timely questions about the society of today. As a "fully paid up member of the most loathed race in the history of the world," Doris admits that she has "image issues. uma distopia um pouco estranha e não se percebe bem quando ocorre mas parece ser na Idade Média e num mundo com uma configuração diferente do nosso.

Are there still people who can't understand the horrors of slavery because it happened to Africans and not them? Not easy to read at first, but that’s not what bothered me: why is it so very close to Afro-Caribbean patois rather than anything derived from British English, given that’s where the slaves are from? But then it got really scary, as I realized it was so easy for my mind to shift back to imagining Doris and the other slaves as Black. The story revolves around Doris, an English slave captured at the age of ten; we pick up her tale about twenty years later and the timeline loves backwards and forwards.

Doris Scagglethorpe, the daughter of a cabbage farmer, was ten years old when she's captured by slavers.
