Patricia Siebke, 12a English Cartoon about slavery 26.02.2021 The cartoon was drawn by Paul Fitzgerald and appeared in ,,Cartoonstock". The cartoon was created in response to slavery in the USA around 1600 and 1865 and shows the attitude of the white society. The white society was fissured and had different opinions about the slave trade. At the top of the picture the observer can read the title „Great moral excises through the ages - part 4". The title is printed in bold and pink. The background is completely blue and in the middle of the cartoon is a man standing. His skin is black, his hair is black and he has got big lips. He isn't wearing any clothes, there is only a pice of material around is waist. The man is looking sadly and is leaning slightly forward. His hole body is in chains, there are some around is neck and his legs. The black person is standing on a stone and is looking straight ahead. Next to the man are four speech bubbles which are in relation to himself. The speech bubbles are spoken by different people, which aren't shown.

other statement is: „I'm only one person - what can I do...?" and the last speaker has the opinion: „It's God's Will!“. The cartoon is referring to a special event - the slavery in the United States. The black man, who is standing on the stone is a symbol for all slaves around 1600 ans 1865. With the chains around his neck and his legs as well as the nakedness the cartoonist wants to show the powerlessness of all the slaves in this period of time. The black man is looking sadly and tired, so the observer sees the trouble of the slaves. They were unhappy and suffered. The slave is presented like an animal or a thing in an exhibition, so the enslavers or the white community hadn't any respect in front of themselves. The white slaveholders treated the slaves like objects or working-machines. Around the slaves there are four speech bubbles, which are statements about the presented slave and in general to the hole slave trade. Important to say is, that the bubbles are only spoken by white people. The society was fissured and had different opinions about the slavery. The person who says: „I'm only one person what can I do..?" has a very special opinion. He or she wants to stop slavery and has got sympathy for the slaves. However the person feels powerless and doesn't know how to start with a rebellion. The two other statements: ,,It's God will!" and ,,It's just human nature, isn't it?" goes together. They want to justify the slavery in the USA and don't feel guilty. For them it is normal to enchain or to whip a black person. The last speech bubble is spoken by an slaveholder who shows sympathy but also disrespect in front of slaves: „Well, if I didn't sell them, someone else would...". He or she is reasonable that slave trade is wrong, but the person can't stop to deal with black humans. It is not enough when one person stop to trade with slaves, the hole society has to change something in this way. The headline,Great moral excuses trough the ages - part 4" gives the viewer information about the topic of the cartoon. The cartoon shows how the white society justified slavery from 1600 to 1865. In this connection the four speech bubbles are a symbol for the hole opinion of the white community. Additionally the cartoonist wants to point out, that the society justified slave trade in a completely absurd way. White people used justifications like ,,God's Will“ or „human nature" which do not make any sens. They weren't verifiable facts or reasons which speak for slavery. On top of that, the cartoonist explains that there were some white humans who wanted to end slavery in the USA. They didn't want to 1 Patricia Siebke, 12a English 26.02.2021 support the slave trade but they didn't start to rebel against the system. The reason could be that this persons felt powerless and were scared against the government. The cartoon has the effect that the viewer thinks about the past. Through the presented picture the observer feels like in 1600 and is prostrate with the living conditions of slaves and the justification of slavery. There is the function that the viewer won't forget this time. Moreover the people can understand the point of view of the white society. Before they saw the cartoon the people thought all the white people are monsters and wanted the slavery at all. Now they know that there were also some whites who weren't okay with the situation. An other great effect is the insight of the dumb justification of slave trade. Everybody of the white society accepted the terrible situation and nobody dared to act. You can see that slavery was a normal thing. Apart from symbols the cartoonist uses an exaggeration. He presents one slave and four opinions in relation to the black human. However in real life there were billions of slaves and hundreds of opinions concerned. Paul Fitzgerald only shows some opinions in relation to one black man. It is presented in a simplified and extremely way. The stylistic device underlines the message of the cartoon, because it should show the attitude of the white society. In this way the cartoonist couldn't show hundred of opinions, there isn't enough place. So he explains the four most important. The historical issue which is illustrated in the cartoon is the slavery around 1600 and 1865. It's about the slave trade with the Afro-Americans which the white Americans managed. The Whites got the slaves from Africa and brought them to plantations in the USA. There the black people had to work under extremely bad living conditions. They hadn't a right to freedom, no they had no rights at all. The white people were cruel to the slaves, they abused them physically, exploited this humans and punished them to make them obey and enforce the dominance by the whites. The slaves could be a domestic slave or field slave, but the two possibilities had the same cruel base - they had to live in bondage. The end of the slavery was the Civil War in 1865. The cartoon is highly effective because it reminds the viewer of an important historical event - the slavery. It is right that the slave trade isn't a topical issue today, but we aren't allowed to forget this period of time. It is our job to talk about this cruel things, how it could happen and why it were possible. The cartoon is convincing because it gives the viewer a clear insight to the attitude of the whites through the speech bubbles. The cartoon makes the observer understand how slavery could happen and let him remind to this time. For the first time the observer experiences the way of thinking of the white people and the enslavers. The black man who is a symbol for all slaves shows that they were treated like animals or things. For white people in the USA black people weren't humans. They were only working-machines and good for their economy. The cartoon is simply to understand and gives the viewer new knowledge. 2
