The novel of which has gained the attention of masses, part of its art is that of deception, forced Christendom, and genocide of our fellow human neighbors.
Though her pain was great which afflicted a great many,
None had mentioned the true woes of such cause.
Dear Mrs. Rowlandson, Dear white man why must you ignore among those of which you
have thus afflicted to a much grander degree?
Under the pretense have you clocked yourself, that is it,
All in the name of our Holy Father.
Yet it is Christ and his creation whom you have cruelly demolished in vanity.
Such willing and loving souls, our brethren the native Algonquians, gave to you.
Yet, were robbed of their lands, of their homes, of their wives, of their children, and of their very own lives.
But, the whites attest to their own, a color so ever-present in the privilege, as another justification for thus actions.
I shall state from the holy book, Christ’s very own words, which you have thou violently denounced, “Thou shall love thy neighbor.”
I thus address to you, Dear Mary, and to you, dear white man: Now if any man has not the spirit of Christ, he is none of his”—Rom. xiii. 9.
So, how have you fared in following Christ word? If thy neighbor is demolished of his rights, as our brethren, because of such a nation.
The innocent blood of our fellow Indian friends is inked on the very words you have so gracefully written.
The very affliction of which you so grieve is self-afflicted by the actions of your own fellow friends.
We should instead, receive transparency of the actions thou people have wreaked upon the Americas. Not read the novels of which mediate and obstruct the true cause of such destruction.
Woe to the ones who were robbed.
Woe to the native parents’ who wake up, without their child.
May their cries be heard among the nation.
Woe to the children whom you’ve slaughtered.
Woe to our fellow Alogians.
Woe to the ones you skillfully depict and lie about.
Woe to the ones who truly and unjustly own, to woe.
- William Apess, a Pequot.
