Frederick Douglass had been a servant in the usa where there have been great deal of inequalities amongst the slaveholders as well as the slaves. Slaves had been mistreated with regards to being whipped, perhaps perhaps perhaps not offered sufficient to eat, poor resting conditions as their bed was simply the flooring; generally speaking slaves barely received the essential requirements from their masters.
Both events occurred to trust and claim to apply the religion that is same Christianity. One does not understand just why the inequalities yet they both practiced the exact same faith. Religion consequently as presented in Douglass narrative tale acts two roles; essentially the symbolic functions and also the functions that are narrative. This conversation therefore is comprehensive of role played by faith in level since the Christianity for the white south comparison compared to that of this slave that is black.
To begin with, faith has been utilized to justify the suffering for the black colored slaves.
The religious slaveholders oppressed the slaves while they argued that Jesus admitted for the servant presence as he cursed Ham.
