"Watching the movie “Lincoln” with Daniel Day Lewis, there is a scene where Lincoln’s son is viewing an image of a slave with keloids on his back from whipping. The image is of a man called “Whipped Peter” and the photo was widely distributed to bolster the cause of the abolishment of slavery. With the end of slavery, I thought i must feel particularly gratifying to have the fruits of your labor belong solely to yourself. The west had a good number (up to ¼ by some estimates) Black cowboys and some were either born into slavery or were recently freed men. Scars of the horrible history of not realizing the profits of your labor are still present, but this man can now start his day as the sole profiteer of his own success." – LaQuincey Reed
