Transcript of The Hands of the Blacks

Senhor Frias
God finished making men and told them to bathe in a lake in heaven. After bathing the people were nice and white. The blacks - they were made very early in the morning, and at this hour the water in the lake was very cold, so they only wet the palms of their hands and the soles of their feet.
They walked around on all fours, like wild animals, so their palms weren't exposed to the sun.
Father Cristiano
They always went about their hands folded together, praying in secret.
The black hands are lighter because they spent their lives bent over, gathering the white cottons of Virginia.
Dona Dores
God made their hands lighter like that so they wouldn't dirty the food that they made for their masters.
The Hands of the Blacks
Dona Estifania
It's only because their hands became bleached with all that washing
Senhor Antunes
The black were said to have been baked while hanging in the chimneys. Their palms stayed white because their hands were tied.
God made Blacks because they had to be.He made the palms exactly like the palms of other men to show that what men do is only the work of men...That what men do is done by hands that are the same -
hands of people who, if they had any sense, would
know that before anything else they are men.
