View Full Version : Field and House Nigger Breeding

I know American niggers tend to excel in sports because they're descendants of the field niggers we used to breed for strength and stamina, but what about the descendants of house niggers? Did we used to breed house niggers for domestication and if so where are the descendants today? I've never seen any domesticated niggers anywhere, because they all seem to chimp out at the slightest provocation.
Did we even used to breed house niggers specifically? Or were house niggers just the runts of the nigger slave litters and they'd only put them in the house because they weren't any good at field work? Anybody know nigger history?

Most of the time, the elderly niggers were used in the household. It was thought that they were the most experienced and domesticated. Sometimes children and young females were used to perform various tasks such as cleaning, gathering wood, etc. It depended on the size of the plantation and how many slaves the family owned.
Almost all bucks were sent to the field and performed the heavy manual labor involved with growing crops, maintenance, animal care, and other tasks required to run the plantation. Again, it depended on the size and number of slaves they owned as to what tasks were given to which slaves.
Breeding was as involved as if one were breeding a horse. Great care was taken to select good stock and bloodlines. After all, The bigger and stronger the animal, the more work it could perform and the healthier it would be. Slaves were shown at county fairs just like a cow or a pig is today. Ribbons and prize money were given and stud fees added to the slave owners pocket book.

Most house slaves were living under better conditions than field workers. However, house slaves did not get Sunday off and usually attended church with the master and mistress. House slaves cleaned, cooked, served meals, and took care of the children. Some house slaves lived in attics, closets, or corners in the big house even if their families lived in the quarters.
A cook's day was long and hard. A cook got up early in the morning to cook breakfast, and the day ended with cleaning up after supper and gathering firewood for the next day. These slaves sometimes stole food from the owner. A house slave had a better opportunity to learn how to read and write. They often listened in on their owner's conversations so they were able to warn field slaves of the owner auctioning certain slaves and other important things. House slaves did many other things such as: waited on tables, washed, ironed, took up and put down carpets, hauled the large steaming pots for the preservation of fruits, lifted the barrels with cucumbers soaking in brine, opened up the barrels of flour, swept floors, dusted furniture, hoed and weeded gardens, and collected the chicken eggs. They also took care of the infants allowing the mistress to do whatever she wanted. These slaves also weaved, quilted and spun linens. Although house slaves had more privileges, being a house slave was not much, if any easier than being a field worker.
Apparently, if this is anything to go on, they didn't have any criterion for selecting which niggers did what.
