Uganda is exactly in the same period of time where United States was 50 years ago. In the house of a slave master lived a “House Negro” who cared a lot about his master than his fellow slave.
The Master made the house negro feel almost as though he was white. The house negro felt as though he had a duty to act the part of the Master when he wasn’t around. Even though the house negroes would get more expensive and fancy foods, field negroes would actually eat a healthier diet.
For example, field negroes would never get white potatoes and were forced to eat sweet potatoes; however, we now know that sweet potatoes are more nutritious.
In Uganda, you hear those who subscribe to the ruling party as “Tuli Mukintu” that notions makes those such house negroes feel that they are part of the ruling class yet that fact is that they do not belong anywhere next to those who are violating the rights, civil liberties of the majority Ugandans who suffer without medicine in their hospitals, no access to doctors and also their children have no acquired an education to compete in today’s society.
It was best stated by Wesley Morris in his amazing review of Django Unchained in the Boston Globe:
Samuel L. Jackson plays crusty, waxen Stephen as a vision of depraved loyalty and bombastic jive that cuts right past the obvious association with Uncle Tom. The movie is too modern for what Jackson is doing to be limited to 1853. He’s conjuring the house Negro, yes, but playing him as though he were Clarence Thomas or Alan Keyes or Herman Cain or Michael Steele, men whom some black people find embarrassing.
The origins of the modern-day practice: black kids getting made fun of for speaking correct English because they are “trying to sound white”
In modern day Uganda, you find ministers who don’t come from a particular region speaking English in a dialect like those who in power and this is the kind of brain washing that house negros adapted.
Obviously, this stereotype serves the Minaani and enslaves the Ugandans by forcing them to fight one-another
House negroes were so brainwashed that they truly actually believed that if their master was sick, hurt, angry, etc it would affect them as well.
When the master was sick, the house negro would say; “Boss we sick?” the house negro, so disenfranchised from the field negro, he identifies more with his master. Even though his master only shows him a superficial and patronizing kinship, the house negro is blinded by what his master offers, becoming too dependent upon an ultimately destructive relationship.
Chaps like Sam Omalla think that they are part of this 1985 group and when they speak they let authority sound out in their tone and words. Like today while commanding his puppet-like followers he said; I don’t want any politician here in Kisekka Market does Omalla know that some politicians own businesses in Kisekka Market.
Oh as many wail and curse the house negroes in Uganda are busy throwing lines in favor of the master in order for them to get expensive groceries, trips abroad and a paid check at the end of the month. Minaani’s agenda is being driven by house negroes. But we the slaves must work hard to unchain ourselves from this long-lasting torment. Yes us the slaves the field negroes we have to do the same thing that Jamie Fox did to Samuel L Jackson the house negro.
