Jamaican Slave-owners used to make their slaves shit in each others mouths as punishment

A few days ago, I was talking to a woman about sexual fetishes and where they came from. She is African and most of the sexual fetishes we discussed are not found in Africa.

Eventually, we got around to people who have defecation/urination fetishes. That’s some of the nastiest …shit…you can do to someone. So, we decide to do a little research to see where it came from.

Our search lead us to Thomas Thislewood, a Jamaican slave owner in the 1700′s who would make his slaves shit and piss in each others mouths as punishment. This was called “Derby’s Dose”.

What kind of sick and twisted person do you have to be to think of something like this?

Derby’s dose was a form of torture used in Jamaica to punish slaves who attempted to escape or committed other offenses like stealing food.  The runaway would be beaten, and salt pickle, lime juice, and bird pepper would be rubbed into his or her open wounds. Another slave would defecate into the mouth of the miscreant, who would then be gagged for four to five hours.”The punishment was invented by Thomas Thistlewood, a slave overseer and named for the slave, Derby, who was made to undergo this punishment when he was caught eating young sugar cane stalks in the field on May 25 1756. Thomas Thistlewood recorded this punishment as well as a further punishment of Derby in August of that same year in his diary.

Think about that, next time someone tells you to get over slavery, and just move on.

    No wonder Jamaicans talk so fast. They are trying to keep their mouths closed as much as possible.

    I bet in parts of San Francisco and West Hollywood, certain guys pay good money to be “punished” this way.

    mrivera…*dead* -_- that was HILARIOUS!!! Welcome to Kaperville. We need more insightful and funny comments like that.

  • Hakimrasheed

    Only the mind of a Caucasian devil could conceive such a deplorable despicable punishment. Something straight out of the caves and hillsides of Europe.

    maxillio, take down that flag, cause you clearly see the humour in your race’s punishments and humiliation. We talk fast because our accent is closer to an African one, you a coon for that.

    Welcome to Kaperville. Hakim! Feel free to express yourself as you like, here. The only rules we have are to respect other members. Take your shoes off, my friend. You are home.

    “…respect other members..” Yet, as a Moderator, you felt comfortable mocking the torture and dialect of our sisters and brothers, then, advising someone else about ‘respect’; and noting that “so far Kaperville has maintained a good vibe”.

    Kwabena advised you appropriately.

    PC, Welcome to Kaperville. We welcome and respect your comments. The only rule we have is that the comments of others are also respected. This site has worked hard to maintain a good vibe and rapport between its members. We welcome you and thank you for joining us.

    No need for name calling…oh yeah…welcome to Kaperville…I do that right Max?! Lol

  • DangerClose

    And you’re too new here for that bs you’re spittin! (Sorry brother Max…I’m on one tonight)

  • Prince Cinque

    The amount of time you’re made aware of my existence is immaterial to the truth that’s been stated here – and not just by me. So, when you’re done, my words trump yours and your ‘internet seniority’. Do you have anything else?

  • http://www.kaperville.com/ maxillio

    Perfect. lol

  • http://www.kaperville.com/ maxillio

    It’s how you disagree that makes all the difference here. We are able to get along, because when we disagree, we do it in a way that is not disrespectful, and not with the intention of “trumping”, but with the hope that we can present a different prospective to the person we are talking to. Once again, WELCOME to Kaperville. DangerClose is one of the SENIOR members of this site.You can’t disrespect family, and now that you are apart of that family, I will not allow anyone to disrespect you. He was right. You are new, and may not be aware of the rules we have established to maintain peace between us.

    Danger “advised you appropriately”.

    No worries. PC and the other guy are new. We can’t blame them. It’s internet culture that is at fault. I actually thought the coon thing was fuckin’ hilarious. I might use it in our tagline.

    Something Something Something…coons.

    This has nothing to do with me, how to disagree, internet seniority, wittiness, DangerClose, your deliberate selective use of the terms “respect” and “disrespect” – in order to deflect, or anything else other than the fact that you have most grossly disrespected and insulted those Afrikans who suffered at the hands of a brutal oppressor, and the dialect currently delivered by the ascendants of those Ancestors.

    That is all this is about – nothing more, regardless of the bogus way to save face that you’re doing now. This is not about that. I haven’t expressed any matter of opinion here; and there is absolutely no way to point out the affront you’ve committed against the Diaspora, without you employing the strategy that you’re invoking now. Nobody must kiss another individual’s behind, or go through an internet hazing ritual, in order to highlight that they’ve committed a gross and unnecessary offence.

    The bible as no problem with slavery, actually we are told to love our slave master. No wonder the black man is so sick today.
