It's high time black America buried Willie Lynch. Let's bury him deep and bury him for good. Old Willie - or at least the speech he supposedly gave to Virginia slaveholders on the banks of the James River in 1712 - has been making the rounds in America's black community for years. Louis Farrakhan quoted extensively from Lynch's speech at the Million Man March in 1995. Lynch supposedly urged American slaveholders to use envy, fear and distrust to divide their slaves, the better to control them.

Gentlemen, I greet you here on the bank of the James River in the year of Our Lord one thousand seven hundred and twelve.

Your invitation reached me on my modest plantation in the West Indies where I have experimented with some of the newest and still oldest methods for control of slaves. Ancient Rome would envy us if my program is implemented.

"Yet do I marvel at this curious thing," the American poet Countee Cullen wrote in the 1920s, "to make a poet black and bid him sing!"
