1829., slobodni crnac koji živi u Bostonu, David Walker, objavio je zapaljivu brošuru pod naslovom: "Žalba". "Žalba" je pozvala robove da ustanu protiv svojih gospodara. Walker je napisao: "Govorim, Amerikanci, za vaše dobro. Moramo i bit ćemo slobodni, kažem unatoč vama. Možete učiniti sve što možete da nas zadržite u bijedi i bijedi, obogatite vas i vašu djecu; ali Bog će izbavi nas ispod sebe. I jao, jao vama ako ćemo se boriti za slobodu. "

Gradonačelnik Savannah odgovorio je zahtjevom da bostonska policija uhiti Walkera. Tako je započeo obrazac ... Sjevernjaci su objavljivali knjige i članke protiv ropstva, a južnjaci su zahtijevali njihovo zaustavljanje.

Glasovi slobode ch.12 – Apel Davida Walkera

Zašto se Walker obraća svom pamfletu “bojanim građanima svijeta ”, a ne samo Sjedinjenim Državama?

Walker je svoj pamflet uputio "obojenim građanima svijeta", a ne samo Sjedinjenim Državama jer je htio reći Amerikancu da Afrikanac ne bi trebao biti rob koji je vrlo izražajan. Walker se protivio ideji ropstva. Inzistirao je na tome da crnci imaju jednako pravo živjeti u Sjedinjenim Državama kao i bijelci te je govorio o mogućnosti oružane borbe protiv ropstva. Zatim se istaknuo i borio za prava crnaca. Izjavio je da bi crnci trebali zauvijek biti robovi Amerikanca i njihove djece. Ne bi trebali raditi na farmi i kopati rudnike, ali ipak bi trebali imati bolje obrazovanje u svom životu. Stoga je Walker svoj pamflet uputio "obojenim građanima svijeta" kako bi se sjetili povijesti ropstva.

Koje lekcije Walker misli da bi crni Amerikanci trebali naučiti iz povijesti drevnog svijeta i povijesti Haitija?
Pouka koju je Walker smatrao da bi crni Amerikanci trebali naučiti iz povijesti drevnog svijeta i Haitija bila je vjera u Gospoda. Osporio je rasizam pozivajući se na postignuća drevnih civilizacija u Africi, te je pozvao crnu Ameriku da se identificira s crnom republikom Haiti, ranim primjerom internacionalizma u Africi.


(1828) David Walker, “Neophodnost opće unije među nama ”

David Walker (1796-1830) najpoznatiji je po revolucionarnom pamfletu, Walkerov apel, u četiri članka: zajedno s preambulom, obojenim građanima svijeta, ali posebno i vrlo izričito onima Sjedinjenih Američkih Država. Ovaj pamflet na dvadeset i šest stranica upozoravao je na krvavi ustanak ako američki robovlasnici ne oslobode svoje porobljene. Ovo je bio prvi poziv na oružanu pobunu. Walker je rođen slobodan u Wilmingtonu u Sjevernoj Karolini, a preselio se u Boston, gdje je bio vlasnik nove i rabljene trgovine odjećom od 1825. do svoje smrti 1830. Walkerovi su govori manje poznati. U prosincu 1828. održao je govor pred Massachusetts General Colored Association, organizacijom osnovanom dvije godine ranije u Bostonu kako bi se suprotstavila ropstvu i diskriminaciji slobodnih crnaca. Govor koji je pozvao na organizaciju i ujedinjeno djelovanje među Afroamerikancima nalazi se u nastavku.

Gospodine predsjedniče, —Ne mogu a da vam zajedno sa svojom braćom ne čestitam na ovoj iznimno zanimljivoj prigodi, prvi polugodišnji sastanak ovog Društva. Kad razmislim o mnogim preprekama koje smo morali voditi u svojim poslovima i s emocijama oduševljenja vidim sadašnji stupanj eminencije do koje je do toga došlo, ne mogu, gospodine, ali biti mišljenja da je nevidljiv ruka mora biti ispružena u naše ime. Od same druge konferencije, koju smo mi sazvali, radi agitiranja prijedloga koji poštuje društvo, pa do konačne konsolidacije, neki smo bili protiv, sa strašću i žarom, koji bi, da je na suprotnoj strani, imali učinili sebi veliku čast. Gospodine, ali zbog nepokolebljivih i istinski domoljubnih napora onih koji su bili naklonjeni stvaranju ove institucije, moglo je to biti danas, u još neorganiziranom stanju. Jesam li rekao u neorganiziranom stanju? Da, da su naši protivnici na svom putu, sam pojam takve institucije mogao bi nam biti izbrisan u mislima. Kako je čudno vidjeti ljude zdravog razuma i podnošljivo dobre prosudbe koji djeluju tako dijametralno u suprotnosti s njihovim interesima, ali suzdržavam se od daljnjih komentara na ovu temu i vraćam se na ono zbog čega smo sazvani.

Prvo, gospodine predsjedniče, ovdje je potrebno odmah primijetiti da je primarni cilj ove institucije, ujediniti obojenu populaciju, do sada, kroz Sjedinjene Američke Države, koliko je to izvedivo i svrsishodno društva, otvaranje, proširivanje i vođenje prepiske i ne uskraćivanje ničega što bi moglo imati najmanje tendenciju popravljanja našeg jadnog stanja - s ograničenjima, međutim, da ne povrijede članove svog ustava ili odredaba Sjedinjenih Država Amerika. Sada, kad smo razdvojeni, činjenica je koju nitko zdrav razum ne može poreći i čiji je uzrok snažan pomoćnik koji nas sprječava da se uspnemo na ljestvicu razumnih i mislećih bića, nitko osim onih koji uživaju u našoj degradaciji pokušat će proturječiti. Jesam li rekao onima koji uživaju u našoj degradaciji? Da, gospodine, slava što ste nas držali u neznanju i jadu, da bismo mogli biti bolji i duži robovi. Gospodin nesumnjive vjerodostojnosti me obavijestio da je robovlasnik, pronašavši jednog od svojih mladih robova s ​​malom pravopisnom knjigom u ruci (neotvorenom), pao i pretukao ga gotovo do smrti, uzvikujući, istovremeno, dijete, steći ćeš bolje učenje od mene ili bilo koje druge moje obitelji.

Apeliram na svaki iskren i predrasudan um, ne hvale li svi takvi ljudi u našim bijedama i degradacijama, i nema li milijuna čiji se najveći značaj nalazi u ovoj užasnoj zloći? Gospodine predsjedniče, to su vrlo humani, filantropski i dobrotvorni ljudi koji svijetu objavljuju da su crnci toliko siromašna, neuka i degradirana vrsta bića da bi, da su pušteni na slobodu, umrli za želja za nečim na čemu će opstati, a kao posljedica toga, prisiljeni su držati ih u ropstvu, činiti im dobro.

O nebo! Što neće srebroljublje i ljubav prema despotskom utjecaju uzrokovati da ljudi rade sa svojim bližnjima, a zapravo su u njihovoj moći? No, da se vratim od onoga što sam odstupio, postavljeno je pitanje, na koji će način Opća obojena udruga (ili Institucija) ujediniti obojenu populaciju, do sada, u Sjedinjenim Državama, koliko je to izvedivo i izvedivo? Na koji upit ,! Odgovaram, pitajući sljedeće: ne poučavaju li nas dvjesto osam godina vrlo nepodnošljive patnje stvarnoj nužnosti općeg sindikata među nama? Ne znamo li doista, užasnu dilemu u koju se nalazimo i iz koje se moramo izvući da bismo se izvukli? Hoćemo li i dalje drijemati, potpuno raširenih ruku, uzvikujući svako malo, protiv svojih bijeda, ali nikada nećemo učiniti ni najmanje kako bismo poboljšali svoje stanje ili stanje svojih potomaka? Nećemo li, zbog takve neaktivnosti, ostaviti ili bolje reći izazvati nasljednu degradaciju naše djece, ali malo, ako uopće, inferiornu od one koju su nam naši očevi, pod svim svojim usporednim nedostacima i nedostacima, ostavili? U redu, hoćemo li mi, dok smo gotovo svi drugi ljudi pod Nebom, ulagati takve silne napore da poboljšamo svoje stanje, obilaziti od kuće do kuće raspitujući se što će nam dobra udruženja i društva učiniti? Ne bismo li se trebali formirati u opće tijelo, kako bismo se zaštitili, pomagali i pomagali u najvećoj mogućoj mjeri, s prethodno spomenutim ograničenjima?

Da, gospodine predsjedniče, neizmjerno je naša dužnost isprobati svaku shemu za koju mislimo da će imati tendenciju olakšavanja našeg spasenja, a konačni rezultat prepustiti onom Bogu, koji drži sudbine ljudi u šupljini svoje ruke, i koji je ikada imao i hoće se svakom narodu odužiti prema njegovim djelima.

Hoće li bilo tko biti toliko otporan da kaže, ili čak zamisli, da nismo sposobni ostvariti bilo koji objekt koji bi mogao imati tendenciju ubrzati našu emancipaciju, kao posljedicu rasprostranjenosti neznanja i siromaštva među nama? U ovom trenutku nespreman sam poreći da je najveći dio nas neukih i siromašnih. No hoće li nas to odvratiti od svih zakonitih pokušaja postizanja željenog predmeta? Ne, gospodine, to bi nas trebalo potaknuti na veće napore, među nama bi trebao postojati duh oponašanja i ispitivanja, gladni i žedni religije postoje zahtjevi, koji će nam, ako ikada budemo toliko sretni da to steknemo, odgovarati svi aspekti života i, po mom skromnom mišljenju, na kraju nas spašavaju od ugnjetavanja, bez premca, gotovo sam rekao, u svjetskim analima.

No, neki mogu čak pomisliti da naša bijela braća i prijatelji ulažu toliko silne napore, kako bi poboljšali svoje stanje, da bismo mogli ostati neutralni gledatelji djela. Da imamo mnogo dobrih prijatelja da, vrlo dobrih, među tim tijelom, možda nitko osim nekoliko ovih koji su uopće čitali neće poreći i da su mnogi od njih otišli i da će otići, sve za naše dobro, evidentno je , od samih djela velikih, dobrih i božanskih Granvillea Sharpea, Wilberforcea, Lundyja i doista domoljubnog i oplakivanog gospodina Ashmuna, pokojnog kolonijalnog agenta Liberije, koji je sa žarom bio ravan samo dobroti njegova srca, izgubio je život u našoj stvari, i mnoštvo drugih koji su previše brojni da bi se moglo spomenuti: i brojna privatna gospoda, koja su, iako kažu malo, ipak užurbano angažirana zauvijek. Sada, sve te velike, i doista, dobre prijatelje koje nam je Bog dao, činim ponizno i ​​vrlo zahvalno priznajem. No, da bismo trebali surađivati ​​s njima, koliko smo u mogućnosti ujedinjujući i njegujući duh prijateljstva i ljubavi među nama, očito je, iz same izložbe naših bijeda, pod kojom stenjamo.

Dva milijuna i pol obojenih ljudi u ovim Sjedinjenim Državama, od kojih je više od petsto tisuća slobodnih otprilike dvije trećine puta. Sada pitam, ako su samo posljednji bili ujedinjeni (što moraju biti ili uvijek žive kao neprijatelji) i odlučili pomoći i pomagati jedni drugima u najvećoj moći, koja bi silna djela oni učinili od dobro naše stvari?

Ali, gospodine predsjedniče, umjesto općenitog poštivanja ovih zahtjeva, koji imaju prirodnu tendenciju da nas podignu u procjenu svijeta, vidimo, na našu žalost, usred nas, bandu zlikovaca, koji , za bijednu svotu od pedeset ili stotinu dolara, otet će i prodati u vječno ropstvo, njihova druga stvorenja! A, također, ako bi netko od njihovih kolega patnika, čije su bijede malo više pojačane bičevima tiranina, pobjegao od svog lažnog vlasnika, malo se odmorio i nažalost pao im na putu, otišao je! jer će ga prodati za čašu viskija! Braćo i supatnici, pitam vas, u ime Boga i Isusa Krista, hoćemo li dopustiti da takvi zloglasni zlikovci počivaju u miru među nama? Zar neće uzeti naše žene i malu djecu, točnije našu malu djecu, kad im se za to ukaže zgodna prilika, i prodati ih za novac robovlasnicima, koji će ih osuditi na lance, lisice, pa čak i na smrt? Neka nam Bog otvori oči na tu djecu đavla i neprijatelje svakog dobra!

Ali, gospodine, ova je zloća jedva paklenija od one koja je pokušana nekoliko mjeseci od, protiv vlade naše braće, Haytiens, dovršenog lupeža, koji je odavno bio spriječen, ali koji, ja nedavno je obaviješten, ipak je primljen u društvo među nekim od naših najuglednijih ljudi, s nekom vrstom bratske naklonosti koju treba pokazati samo gospodinu časti.

Gospodine predsjedniče, svi takvi podli, i više nego sramotni postupci, ovi, moćni su pomoćnici, koji rade na našem uništenju, i koji su gnušani u očima Boga i dobrih ljudi. Ali, gospodine, ne mogu a da ne blagoslovim Boga za veličanstveno iščekivanje ne tako dalekog razdoblja, kada se ove stvari koje nas sada ponižavaju neće više praktikovati među sinovima Afrike - jer, iako ovo, a možda i drugo, generacija možda neće doživjeti obećane blagoslove Neba, ali će, utučena, degradirana i sada porobljena djeca Afrike, usprkos svim svojim neprijateljima, zauzeti svoje mjesto među narodima na zemlji. Gospodine, doista vjerujem da Bog ima nešto u rezervi za nas, što će nam, kad nam to podijeli, nadoknaditi za sve naše patnje i bijede.

U petom odlomku brošure Walkers otkrivena je njegova frustracija. Da, bijelci su postigli svoj cilj da postanu prosperitetnija nacija, proširili su svojih trinaest država na dvadeset četiri i iz tog su se razloga osjećali iznad i izvan crnaca. Proširenje nije bilo njihovo najveće postignuće, iako njihova neovisnost. Crnci su im bili manji zbog boje kože. Zapravo, na crnce su gledali kao na Božji dar bijelcima. Prisiljavanje crnaca na poljoprivredni i rudarski rad i uživanje u profitu od njihovog teškog rada kada nisu radili ništa drugo osim manevrirali crncima na svoju želju, kao da su životinje nesposobne za bilo što drugo osim za služenje bijelcima. Crnci su intenzivno radili i nisu ništa dobili, dok su bijelci stekli bogatstvo i svojoj djeci dali budućnost koju crna djeca zbog boje kože nikada neće imati. Njegova strategija u ovom odjeljku je jednostavna i jasna, govori istinu. Bijelci ne rade ništa drugo nego leže i bogate se dok crnci rade i rade i od toga nemaju nikakvu korist, već su vezani poput neukroćenih divljaka i govore im što trebaju raditi cijeli život. Također ismijava bijelce koristeći se svojim vjerskim pogledima. Tvrdi da bijelci vjeruju da je Bog na njihovoj strani, a robovi nisu ništa drugo nego zadovoljstvo koje je stvorio posebno za bijelce.
Ovaj je argument vrlo uvjerljiv zbog činjenice da su bijelci od crnaca napravili sluge koji su znali koliko je užasno biti pod tuđim zapovjedništvom, a proživjeli su isto iskustvo dok su bili pod zapovjedništvom Velike Britanije što očito nisu mogli podnijeti uzrokujući otkrivati ​​ih stoga stavljajući crnce u istu torturu vrlo malo i nisko govori o njima. Čitajući ovaj odlomak emocije izazvane u čitatelju bijes su i sram bijelaca. Kako licemjerno u njihovo ime žele neovisnost i slobodu, a ipak misle da je ispravno uzeti slobodu drugih. Kako su mogli samo na sekundu vjerovati da će Bog odobriti takvo ponašanje?

U stavku 10. stoji sljedeće
“Neka se nitko od nas ne pomakne ni korak, i neka nas robovlasnici dođu potući iz naše zemlje. Amerika je više naša zemlja, nego bijelci-obogatili smo je svojom krvlju i suzama. Najveća bogatstva u cijeloj Americi proizašla su iz naše krvi i suza: — i hoće li nas otjerati s našeg posjeda i domova, koje smo zaradili svojom krvlju? Moraju izgledati oštro ili će ih ova stvar brzo uništiti. Amerikanci su nam se toliko ugojili krvi i stenjanja, da su gotovo zaboravili Boga vojske. Ali, nastavite. ”

Sažetak: Odlomak opisuje kako crnac ne bi trebao napraviti ni korak unatrag i ostati jak protiv bijelih robinja. Bijelci bi im trebali doći ako ih žele pobijediti iz svoje zemlje. Nadalje, opisuje kako je sve bogatstvo u Americi nastalo zbog teškog rada robova. Prema paragrafu, Sjedinjene Američke Države više su zemlja robova, a ne bijelaca, jer su izgrađene na krvi i suzama tih robova i trebaju li bijelci zaboraviti da će brzo uništenje pasti na bijelce.

Po mom mišljenju, ovaj odlomak nema apsolutno nikakav učinak da uvjeri čitateljev um. Jasno je da se ovdje radi o tome da se SAD gradi na krvi i suzama robova, ali u skladu s ovim stavkom nema čvrstih činjenica i dokaza koji bi to potvrdili. Za mene su to samo prazne riječi bez okosnice. Beskorisno i neučinkovito.

U desetom i jedanaestom paragrafu stoji: “ Neka nitko od nas ne popusti ni korak, i neka nas robovlasnici dođu tući iz naše zemlje. Amerika je više naša zemlja, nego bijelci-obogatili smo je svojom krvlju i suzama. Najveća bogatstva u cijeloj Americi proizašla su iz naše krvi i suza: — i hoće li nas otjerati s našeg posjeda i domova, koje smo zaradili svojom krvlju? Moraju izgledati oštro ili će ih ova stvar brzo uništiti. Amerikanci su nam se toliko ugojili krvi i stenjanja, da su gotovo zaboravili Boga vojske. Ali neka ide dalje.
Misle li nas kolonizatori ispratiti, a da se prethodno s nama ne pomire? Misle li nas okupiti kao grube i poslati nas, kao što su to učinili naša braća iz države Ohio? Zar se oni nisu trebali pomiriti s nama ili nas pomiriti s njima zbog okrutnosti kojom su napatili naše očeve i nas? Misli da kolonizatori misle da se moraju nositi s nizom brutalnosti, svakako. Misle li nas otjerati iz naše zemlje i domova, nakon što su je obogatili našom krvlju i suzama, i zadržati milijune naše drage braće, potonule u najbarbarskijoj bijedi, da iskopaju zlato i srebro za njih i njihovu djecu? Sigurno, Amerikanci moraju misliti da smo brutalni, kakvi su nas neki od njih predstavljali. Misle da ne osjećamo našu braću, koju ubijaju nekoliko centimetara, ali strašno su prevareni. “.

Sažetak: Ovdje Walker tvrdi da ih robovlasnici ne mogu pomaknuti ili pobijediti iz ove zemlje jer je to više zemlja robova nego bijelci. Oni su zajedno sa svojim precima uložili svoju krv, znoj i suze u to da ovu zemlju učine prosperitetnom. Bijelci su postali debeli i stekli bogatstvo teškim radom robova. Tvrdi da robovi neće biti otpušteni kao Indijanci iz Ohia, koji su bili tretirani jednako loše kao i robovi. Neće biti istjerani iz ove zemlje bez ičega što bi pokazali kao da su bijelci od Amerike učinili to što jest. Također, Amerikanci vjeruju da robovi ne osjećaju Indijance koji su izbačeni sa zemlje radili su naporno da naprave ono što je danas, ali to čine.

Analiza: Walker koristi uvjeravanje i činjenice kako bi njegovi čitatelji osjetili bol robova, kao i Indijanaca koji su ovu zemlju učinili današnjom. Također se koristi ponavljanjem kao što je “krv, znoj i suze ”, kako bi nam tu ideju trajno ulio u glavu jer je to glavna točka ova dva odlomka. Kao čitatelj mogu reći da sam osjećao grižnju savjesti prema robovima i Indijancima i želio bih da su mogli dobiti neku vrstu zahvale ili poštovanja što su u osnovi vlasnike robova učinili bogatim. Indijanci su istisnuti iz svoje zemlje s osjećajem bezvrijednosti i idejom da su izgubili sve za što su radili, baš kao i robovi (osim što nisu izbačeni iz svoje zemlje).

Stavak 9: “Ako netko od nas smatra da je potrebno otići, idite k onima koji su bili već dugi niz godina, a sada su naši najveći zemaljski prijatelji i dobročinitelji — Englezi. Ako nije tako, idite našoj braći, hajtijancima, koji su nas prema njihovoj riječi dužni štititi i tješiti. Amerikanci kažu da smo nezahvalni-ali ja ih pitam zaboga, na čemu bismo im trebali biti zahvalni na##8212 što su ubili naše očeve i majke? — Ili nam žele da im se vratimo zahvaljujući što su nas okovali i vezali lisicama, žigosali, nabili nam vatru u grlu ili nas držali u ropstvu te nas gotovo ili sasvim nasmrt pretukli da bismo radili u neznanju i bijede, za uzdržavanje njih i njihovih obitelji. Oni sigurno misle da smo mi banda budala. Oni među njima, koji su dobrovoljno ponudili svoje usluge za naše otkupljenje, iako im nismo u mogućnosti nadoknaditi njihov trud, ipak im od srca zahvaljujemo i uporno držimo oči uprte u njih, i trud iz ljubavi prema njima Bog i čovjek. — No, misle li robovlasnici da im zahvaljujemo što nas drže u bijedama i oduzimaju nam živote za centimetre? ”

U ovom odlomku Walker tvrdi da iako bijeli robovlasnici misle da robovi nemaju pomoć nikoga, da su sami i bez pomoći bilo koga. Zapravo, oni se zapravo mogu osloniti na američke neprijatelje-Engleze i druge poput Haićana da ih zaštite. Također tvrdi da Amerikanci propovijedaju visoko i nisko da su robovi nezahvalni zbog svog paternalističkog stava i ponašanja, ali doista nema na čemu biti zahvalan. Oni nisu budale u usporedbi s robovlasnicima, ne idu protiv vlastitih riječi, vlastitih propovijedanja mira za svakog čovjeka ili uzimaju Božje ime dok idu protiv onoga što je zapisano u Bibliji. Robovlasnici žele biti nagrađeni/zahvalni na njihovoj okrutnosti, ali umjesto toga robovi su još više isprovocirani da se osvete.

U svom argumentu Walker postavlja mnoga retorička pitanja koja me čak i kao čitatelja izazivaju. Ovaj odlomak je uvjerljiv u tome, ističe direktive, prigovore i razloge problema. Organizacija i detalji odlomka mentalno utječu na čitatelja. Ovaj odlomak također pokazuje licemjerje robovlasnika i njihovu nesposobnost da shvate i definiraju moral i uvažavanje. Općenito, ovaj odlomak je vrlo argumentiran i dirljiv, uglavnom zbog njegove upotrebe jasnih detalja.

…Moram primijetiti svojoj braći da je na kraju prve revolucije u ovoj zemlji, s Velikom Britanijom, u Uniji bilo samo trinaest država, sada ih ima dvadeset i četiri, od kojih su većina države koje drže roblje, i bijelci nas vuku okolo u lancima i u lisicama, u svoje nove države i teritorije kako bi radili na njihovim rudnicima i farmama, obogatili njih i njihovu djecu-a milijuni njih čvrsto vjeruju da smo mi malo mračniji od njih naš Stvoritelj da bude naslijeđe njima i njihovoj djeci zauvijek-isto kao i grupica zvjerki.

Walker pokušava objasniti da se zemlja širila i odvajala od Velike Britanije. Ipak, kad su se bijeli sindikati raspali, bijelci su hvatali ljude koji su također htjeli slobodu da rade za njih. Unija je narasla s trinaest na dvadeset četiri, ali robne države bile su većina u sindikatu. Walker navodi da ljudi, koji su prisiljeni raditi na farmama i rudnicima, to moraju učiniti samo zato što im je koža malo tamnija jer ih je stvoritelj tako napravio.
Walker je pogoršan zbog načina na koji se s robovima postupa. Ali osjećam da je također razočaran što robovi nisu učinili ništa da zaustave ovu zlouporabu. Walker smatra da budući da im je boja kože samo malo tamna ne bi trebali patiti i raditi pod bijelcima koji se prodaju, trguju i zlostavljaju. Walker je uvjerljiv u svom pisanju i govori da bi trebalo doći do pobune ili promjene. On je istovremeno i motivacijski dajući čitateljima do znanja da je to nepravedno i da bi uskoro trebalo napraviti neke promjene.

U paragrafu 10 stoji: Neka nitko od nas ne pomakne ni korak, i neka nas robovlasnici dođu tući iz naše zemlje. Amerika je više naša zemlja, nego bijelci-obogatili smo je svojom krvlju i suzama. Najveće bogatstvo u cijeloj Americi proizašlo je iz naše krvi i suza: — i hoće li nas otjerati s našeg posjeda i domova, koje smo zaradili svojom krvlju? Moraju izgledati oštro ili će ih ova stvar brzo uništiti. Amerikanci su nam se toliko ugojili krvi i stenjanja, da su gotovo zaboravili Boga vojske. Ali neka ide dalje.

ljetni: Odlomak govori o tome kako se robovi ne plaše da će ih gospodari udariti. govori o tome kako Amerika više pripada crncima nego bijelcima. govori o teškom poslu koji su robovi uložili u izgradnju zemlje. robovi su se morali odreći krvi i suza kako bi izgradili domove mnogih nezahvalnih bijelaca.

ovaj odlomak također govori o tome kako se robovi trebaju uspraviti i boriti za svoja prava jer se svi bijelci toliko udebljaju od svega što im se čini od robova da zaboravljaju da su u očima boga robovi jednaki svi bijelci

u stavku 6 stoji “ … na moje obično čuđenje, [a] Velečasni gospodin je ustao i rekao nam (obojeni ljudi) da robovi moraju biti poslušni svojim gospodarima — moraju izvršiti svoju dužnost prema svojim gospodarima ili biti bičevani — bič je napravljen za leđa budala, & ampc. Ovdje zastajem na trenutak, kako bih dao svijetu vremena da razmisli o onome što me je iznenadilo, da čujem takvo propovijedanje od službenika svog Učitelja, čije je samo evanđelje ono mira, a ne krvi i biča, kako je pokušao ovaj pretvarani propovjednik učini da vjerujemo. Što američki propovjednici mogu misliti o nama, danas sam pred Bogom, nikada nisam uspio definirati. Imaju novine i mjesečne periodične publikacije, koje neprestano primaju, ali na čijim stranicama ćete rijetko pronaći odlomak koji se odnosi na ropstvo, koje je ovoj zemlji deset tisuća puta štetnije od svih ostalih zajeda zajedno. bit će to konačno rušenje njene vlade, osim ako se nešto ne učini vrlo brzo jer im je čaša gotovo puna. -Možda će se oni tome nasmijati ili osvijetliti, ali kažem vam Amerikanci! da ako brzo ne promijenite svoj kurs, vas i vašu državu više nema! ! ! ! ! ”

Jasno je da Walker pokušava prenijeti čiste hipokratske poglede na tadašnje vjersko usmjerenje. Slično kao što rana američka vlada tvrdi da su svi muškarci stvoreni ravnopravnima, biblija i propovjednici govore o nedostatku nasilja i miroljubivim rješenjima za ono što se može smatrati složenim suvremenim pitanjima, međutim, robovi su bičevani jer postoji##pogrešno mišljenje#8221 nadglednika i vlasnika. linija “ …bič je napravljen za leđa budala … ” ističe se, jer robove naziva budalama, za ono što mi se čini zato što prihvaćaju ovu ulogu poslušnog sluge koji se treba bojati bijesa tamo gospodar i ovaj bič, koji kupuju po volji tih drugih ljudi. kaže “ …ali kažem vam Amerikanci! da ako brzo ne promijenite svoj kurs, vas i vašu državu više nema! ! ! ! ! ” I to dovoljno govori, može se tvrditi do danas, da Amerika nikada nije doživjela konačno ukidanje ropstva, iznos svjetske potpore koji smo godinama stjecali tijekom Prvog i Drugog svjetskog rata možda uopće ne postoji, kako bismo mi izgledali kao prezreni zemlje koja je ropstvo uvukla u moderno društvo i nikada nije evoluirala iz takvog neznanja.

“JESMO LI MI! ! — Pitam vas, 0 braćo moja, jesmo li MUŠKARCI? Je li nas naš Stvoritelj učinio robovima praha i pepela poput nas samih? Nisu li oni crvi na samrti kao i mi? Zar se oni nisu trebali pojaviti pred nebeskim sudom, da odgovaraju za djela učinjena u tijelu, kao i mi? Imamo li drugog Učitelja osim Isusa Krista? Nije li on njihov Učitelj kao i naš? — Što onda imamo pravo poslušati i pozvati bilo kojeg drugog Učitelja, osim Njega samog? Nikada nisam mogao zamisliti kako bismo mogli biti toliko podložni gomili ljudi, za koju ne možemo reći jesu li oni dobri poput nas samih ili ne. Međutim, ovo je zatvoreno s Gospodinom i ne možemo točno reći —, ali izjavljujem, sudimo o ljudima prema njihovim djelima ”

Sažetak: Ovaj odlomak koji sam odabrao možda je u jednom trenutku prošao kroz um svih robova. Njegov rob govori i pita zašto i u osnovi koja je razlika između bijelaca i njih samih ako vjeruju u istog BOGA. Koja je pravda i duboki razlozi porobljavanja ako su svi ljudi. po mom mišljenju kada govori o "crvima koji umiru", u osnovi kaže da će svi jednog dana umrijeti.

…Moram primijetiti svojoj braći da je na kraju prve revolucije u ovoj zemlji, s Velikom Britanijom, u Uniji bilo samo trinaest država, sada ih ima dvadeset i četiri, od kojih su većina države koje drže roblje, i bijelci nas vuku okolo u lancima i u lisicama, u svoje nove države i teritorije kako bi radili na njihovim rudnicima i farmama, obogatili njih i njihovu djecu-a milijuni njih čvrsto vjeruju da smo mi malo mračniji od njih naš Stvoritelj da bude naslijeđe njima i njihovoj djeci zauvijek-isto kao i grupica zvjerki.

Ukratko- u ovom odlomku on i#8217 objašnjavaju da je većina država robnih država. A one koje nisu ropske države, ali se pretvaraju u robovske države, bijelci ih dovode na posao na tamošnje plantaže. Budući da su tamniji od bijelaca, bijelci vjeruju da su na ovu zemlju stavljeni brinuti se o njima i o njihovoj djeci. Također vjeruju da su robovi stavljeni na ovu zemlju samo da im služe. I da ih se može proći kad ovladaju smrću, oni postaju sljedeće vlasništvo djece.

“Bijelci su uvijek bili nepravedni. . .ali kažem vam Amerikanci! da ako brzo ne promijenite svoj kurs, vas i vašu zemlju više nema! ” Walker počinje izričito iznoseći svoje mišljenje da su bijelci zli i gladni moći. On koristi ovaj odlomak kako bi nas obavijestio o neprirodnoj, ali uobičajenoj praksi, gdje su ministri ili takozvani Božji ljudi bili za ropstvo. Walker shows that he is surprised to hear a pious man professing that slaves were supposed to play their positions and be docile or they should be whipped. The irony here is that a man of God who should be an advocate for peace and godly matters is voicing his consent with slavery. He also feels that newspapers are filled with small evils/crimes compared to the monstrosity of slavery. He feels that slavery will be the dominant reason why America is ruined. He sheds light on the idea that if slavery is not removed from this country then it will no longer exist.
Walker makes a very persuasive and strong argument. He uses exemplification of other races such as Egyptians, who it has been said suffered the same horrors as blacks. He urges his readers that this is untrue and that no other race of people has ever had to undergo the dehumanization that blacks did. His essay calls out to anyone in the world who is willing to listen. He hopes that they can feel sympathy and register in their hearts/brains the pain of slavery and make a change.
Additionally, Walker expresses the idea that death is a far better outcome than “servile submission” or in other words, slavery. In present day America, some philosophers have theories in ethics, based on the faith of living or dying. Problem is as many theories as they may develop none will truly have any moral relevance because no one can decide for others if death is better than living or if living triumphs death. Therefore, for Walker to say that he would rather death than to have been subjected to a life of slavery shows just how vigorous his conviction of slavery is in America. He blew me away, especially with his posing question, “O, my brethren are we men?” Upon reading this both pain and empathy aroused in my heart it is the saddest thing to know that black people were so severely demoralized.

In the last paragraph David walker starts with “See your Declaration Americans! ! !Do you understand your won language?”. He is asking Americans do they know the language of the Declaration of Independence. He reminds them that in the document it states all men are created equal. They have natural rights, which are life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. He is telling white Americans these rights include African Americans. David walker is calling out the hypocrisies many white Americans live in and to compare the murders and evils they did to African Americans to the words of the Declaration of Independence. His final words speaks the biggest truth of them all, he said “inflicted by your cruel and unmerciful fathers and yourselves on our fathers and on us — men who have never given your fathers or you the least provocation! ! ! ! ! !”. The cruelties African Americans suffer in slavery were never provoke. They did not start a war or steal from Americans they were just born a different color. David Walker anger is justified by the life his brothers and sisters lived.

David walker is making his point through knowledge from the beginning of history, where whites bring blacks over as slaves to work. I think Divid walker is trying to use reverse psychology on the whites, expressing that even though they are a dominant race if it wasn’t for the african slaves they will not be as much progress in America as they have now. his argument is very persuasive to the whites that holds no slaves. he uses examples like ( America has arisen from our blood and tears, americans have gotten fat on our blood and groans). he is basically saying while the whites sit on their asses the slaves are the one working from dust till dawn for America. The emotional response this paragraph has is why are the black people getting treated this way, when they have made the country just as much as the whites have if not more.

In the 9th paragraph it says:

“Let no man of us budge one step, and let slave-holders come to beat us from our country. America is more our country, than it is the whites-we have enriched it with our blood and tears. The greatest riches in all America have arisen from our blood and tears: — and will they drive us from our property and homes, which we have earned with our blood? They must look sharp or this very thing will bring swift destruction upon them. The Americans have got so fat on our blood and groans, that they have almost forgotten the God of armies. But let the go on”.


David Walker’s Appeal to the Colored Citizens of the World, 1829

David Walker was the son of an enslaved man and a free Black woman. He traveled widely before settling in Boston where he worked in and owned clothing stores and involved himself in various reform causes. In 1829, he wrote the remarkable Appeal to the Colored Citizens of the World. In it, he exposed the hypocrisies of American claims of freedom and Christianity, attacked the plan to colonize Black Americans in Africa, and predicted that God’s justice promised violence for the enslaving United States.

Having travelled over a considerable portion of these United States, and having, in the course of my travels, taken the most accurate observations of things as they exist—the result of my observations has warranted the full and unshaken conviction, that we, (coloured people of these United States,) are the most degraded, wretched, and abject set of beings that ever lived since the world began and I pray God that none like us ever may live again until time shall be no more. They tell us of the Israelites in Egypt, the Helots in Sparta, and of the Roman Slaves, which last were made up from almost every nation under heaven, whose sufferings under those ancient and heathen nations, were, in comparison with ours, under this enlightened and Christian nation, no more than a cypher—or, in other words, those heathen nations of antiquity, had but little more among them than the name and form of slavery while wretchedness and endless miseries were reserved, apparently in a phial, to be poured out upon our fathers, ourselves and our children, by Kršćanski Americans!

… But against all accusations which may or can be preferred against me, I appeal to Heaven for my motive in writing—who knows what my object is, if possible, to awaken in the breasts of my afflicted, degraded and slumbering brethren, a spirit of inquiry and investigation respecting our miseries and wretchedness in this Republican Land of Liberty.

…Will any of us leave our homes and go to Africa? Nadam se da ne. Let them commence their attack upon us as they did on our brethren in Ohio, driving and beating us from our country, and my soul for theirs, they will have enough of it. Let no man of us budge one step, and let slave-holders come to beat us from our country. America is more our country, than it is the whites—we have enriched it with our blood and tears. The greatest riches in all America have arisen from our blood and tears:—and will they drive us from our property and homes, which we have earned with our blood? They must look sharp or this very thing will bring swift destruction upon them. The Americans have got so fat on our blood and groans, that they have almost forgotten the God of armies. But let them go on…

I also ask the attention of the world of mankind to the declaration of these very American people, of the United States. A declaration made July 4, 1776. It says, “When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them. A decent respect for the opinions of mankind requires, that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.—We hold these truths to be self evident—that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights: that among these, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness ….” See your Declaration Americans. Do you understand your own language? Hear your language, proclaimed to the world, July 4th, 1776—”We hold these truths to be self evident—that ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL!! that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights that among these are life, sloboda, and the pursuit of happiness!!” Compare your own language above, extracted from your Declaration of Independence, with your cruelties and murders inflicted by your cruel and unmerciful fathers and yourselves on our fathers and on us—men who have never given your fathers or you the least provocation.

Now, Americans! I ask you candidly, was your sufferings under Great Britain, one hundredth part as cruel and tyranical as you have rendered ours under you? Some of you, no doubt, believe that we will never throw off your murderous government and “provide new guards for our future security.” If Satan has made you believe it, will he not deceive you? Do the whites say, I being a black man, ought to be humble, which I readily admit? I ask them, ought they not to be as humble as I? or do they think that they can measure arms with Jehovah? Will not the Lord yet humble them? or will not these very coloured people whom they now treat worse than brutes, yet under God, humble them low down enough? Some of the whites are ignorant enough to tell us that we ought to be submissive to them, that they may keep their feet on our throats. And if we do not submit to be beaten to death by them, we are bad creatures and of course must be damned, &c. If any man wishes to hear this doctrine openly preached to us by the American preachers, let him go into the Southern and Western sections of this country—I do not speak from hear say—what I have written, is what I have seen and heard myself. No man may think that my book is made up of conjecture— I have travelled and observed nearly the whole of those things myself, and what little I did not get by my own observation, I received from those among the whites and blacks, in whom the greatest confidence may be placed.

The Americans may be as vigilant as they please, but they cannot be vigilant enough for the Lord, neither can they hide themselves, where he will not find and bring them out.

David Walker, An Appeal to the Colored Citizens of the World (Boston: 1830), 3-4, 73, 84, 86.


The Book That Spooked the South

Two weeks before Christmas 1829, 60 copies of a book slipped off a ship at the port of Savannah and found their way to a local black preacher. Seeing what was inside, he turned them over to the police at once. They seized every copy.

The author, it turned out, was a free and educated black man named David Walker, a Boston activist and used-clothing dealer.

As its title suggested, the book was an “Appeal” to “The Colored Citizens of the World, but in Particular and Very Expressly to those of the United States of America.” Yet appeal was a tame word for the prophecy smoldering between its covers, clearly directed towards the nation’s enslaved laborers. The police may have flipped to page 28: “It is no more harm for you to kill a man, who is trying to kill you, than it is for you to take a drink of water when thirsty.” Page 35 argued that owners denied slaves education because it would reveal their right to “cut his devlish throat from ear to ear, and well do slave-holders know it.”

Perhaps the police clapped the book shut after page 42, startled when it aimed at whites directly: “Unless you speedily alter your course, vas and your Country are gone. For God Almighty will tear up the very face of the earth. ”

Shortly after this seizure, 20 more copies appeared in Georgia’s capital, then another 30 in Virginia. More materialized in New Orleans and Charleston two months later. Before the end of the year, more than 200 had breached the Carolinas. Police scrambled but failed to confiscate most copies, despite in some instances sending undercover agents into black communities. In certain parts of the South, evidence emerged that the book was in fact spreading via networks of runaways. Whites began to panic. Frederick Douglass later reflected that the Apel “startled the land like a trump of coming judgment.”

Hoping to stanch the book’s flow, state officials called emergency sessions and passed legislation with astounding swiftness. In the words of historian Lacy K. Ford, Jr., “the security furor triggered by the appearance of David Walker's pamphlet was without precedent.” In Georgia, legislators convened on December 21 and passed new laws before the end of the year. Georgia and North Carolina banned black sailors from entering their ports and outlawed the circulation of questionable literature, punishable by death in the former. Louisiana and Virginia strengthened codes that banned free blacks from entering the state or outlawed literacy instruction for slaves.

The day after the Apel first appeared in the South, the mayor of Savannah wrote to the mayor of Boston, Harrison Gray Otis, requesting that Mr. Walker be punished for the distribution of his “highly inflammatory work.” Otis conceded that the book was “extremely bad,” but it was not strictly illegal according to any Massachusetts law. He could neither confiscate it nor punish Walker lawfully.

This was more than a failure to harmonize Southern and Northern law it was a symptom of what Abraham Lincoln would later call a “house divided against itself” on fundamental definitions of property rights versus human rights. The “right to tamper with this species of property belongs to no man, and no body of men, but their owners,” one Georgia journalist wrote in response to the Appeal –  this was “the point of delicacy, and the sanctum sanctorum of Southern feeling.”

Otis did send men to question Walker, perhaps hoping that some pressure from the mayor’s office would unnerve him. To their surprise, Walker not only openly claimed the Apel as his handiwork, but made plain his intention to circulate more copies at his own expense – also perfectly legal in Massachusetts. Otis could do little besides warn New England ship captains about the book and urge his southern countrymen to remain calm. Otis pointed to “the insignificance of the writer, the extravagance of his sanguinary fanaticism” as evidence that everything would blow over if everyone kept their heads.

But in reality, more than any book in American history, the Apel forced a choice between peace of mind and owning slaves.

Was Walker, as Otis said, an extravagant fanatic, not worth their panic?

He was born in Wilmington, North Carolina, in 1796. His father, a slave, died before his birth. His mother, free, passed her freedom on to him as the law allowed. Walker nonetheless despised his birthplace, a “bloody land . where I must hear slaves’ chains continually.” He left for the North, and it seems no coincidence that he sent 200 copies of the Apel to his hometown alone, nearly double the amount that he had sent elsewhere.

Walker plugged into nearly all the major networks of antebellum black activism. He was a leader in AME Church communities in Charleston, Philadelphia, and Boston –  all cities with organized free black communities – and was active in Boston’s Prince Hall Freemasonry, where he also helped found the Massachusetts General Coloured Association. In addition to composing his own antislavery writings and speeches, he was even a sales agent for Freedom's Journal, America's first black newspaper. Walker was welcome company among the organized black North.

And if his Apel was peppered plentifully with prophecy and exclamation marks, its core argument was simple and unnerving. He began with the common premise that slavery defied God’s law because it usurped God’s authority. (“Have we any other Master but Jesus Christ alone?” he posed plainly.) As such, slavery was destined to end either peacefully or violently. Those who defended it, he argued, “forget that God rules in the armies of heaven.”

But even slave owners like Thomas Jefferson had acknowledged as much years earlier. “I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just,” he famously brooded, wondering if a revolution was coming for America’s slave economy. 

Walker terrified readers by unfolding this premise a step further, from passive apocalypticism to active holy war: if slavery defied God’s law, so did obedient slaves. Rebellious slaves, therefore, were God’s warriors.

“The man who would not fight … in the glorious and heavenly cause of freedom and of God – to be delivered from the most wretched, abject and servile slavery,” he wrote, “ought to be kept … in chains, to be butchered by his cruel enemies.” Echoing the American Revolution, Walker transformed God’s law into battle lines, Providence into a call-to-arms. This combination of militant prophecy and straightforward reasoning was precisely what whites feared would rouse slaves.

The Apel came in the wake of bloody slave rebellions that had already practiced what Walker preached. Though it came nearly a century earlier, people still told stories about the Stono Rebellion of 1731, while revolts only increased after the revolutions in America, France, and Haiti. The conspiracy of Gabriel “Prosser” in 1800, the German Coast Uprising of 1811, and Denmark Vesey’s conspiracy in 1822 – just seven years before the Appeal – all put muscle behind Walker’s prophecy. When Nat Turner staged the country’s largest and deadliest slave rebellion the year after the Apel’s initial appearance, many slaveholders found their worst fears confirmed.

Walker’s pamphlet was arguably more terrifying than these rebellions, precisely because it could spread a precise, persuasive message much further and faster than the charismatic leadership that catalyzed these revolts. Two months after Walker sent his 200 copies of the Apel to North Carolina, for instance, white residents overheard talk of a plot circulating among a broad network of slaves. If former slave rebellions had been scarier instances of real violence, they were also restricted to local phenomena. Walker’s Apel was the first instance in which revolt haunted the South as a whole. “None of these insurrections,” in the words of Ford, “generated the breadth of alarm” as the circulation of the Apel, whose call for slaves “to throw off the chains of slavery, struck raw nerves on a broader scale.”

The Apel even encouraged some efforts to diminish slavery’s presence in the South. Georgia, for instance, introduced a partial ban on the importation of slaves, and its governor pushed for a full ban, while the Apel re-energized the Colonizationist movement in Mississippi.

After Nat Turner’s rebellion, this brief outburst of antislavery animus faded just as full-throated defenses of slavery arose from apologists like John C. Calhoun and George Fitzhugh. Then Walker died in August 1830, a short year after the Apel’s appearance. (Some suspected a proslavery assassination plot, but it was likely tuberculosis.)

If Walker failed to scare America straight, his prophecy came true in another sense. He believed that God, as a “just and holy Being,” would “one day appear fully in behalf of the oppressed” – through either the revolt of the oppressed or the self-destruction of the oppressors, “caus[ing] them to rise up one against another.” Had he lived to witness the eruption of the Civil War 30 years later, Walker may have found both prophecies fulfilled.

Sadržaj

In the 1880s, Walker moved from Mansfield to Leicester to take over an established butcher's shop in the high street. Meat rationing in the UK after World War II saw the factory output drop dramatically, and so in 1948 the company starting looking at alternative products. Potato crisps were becoming increasingly popular with the public this led managing director R.E. Gerrard to shift the company focus and begin hand-slicing and frying potatoes. [3] [11]

The first crisps manufactured by Walkers were sprinkled with salt and sold for threepence a bag. [12] (Crisps had been sold without flavour until 1925, when Smith’s began including a small blue sachet of salt in packets [13] by 1947, Golden Wonder had introduced ready-salted crisps. [14] )

In 1954, the first flavoured crisps were invented by Joe “Spud” Murphy (owner of the Irish company Tayto) who developed a technique to add cheese and onion seasoning during production. [15] Later that year, Walkers introduced cheese and onion (inspired by the Ploughman's lunch), and salt and vinegar was launched in 1967 (inspired by the nation’s love of fish and chips). [13] Prawn cocktail flavour was introduced in the 1970s (inspired by the 1970s popular starter of prawn cocktail) and roast chicken (inspired by the nation’s roast dinner). [12]

The Walkers logo, featuring a red ribbon around a yellow sun, is noticeably similar to Lay's. It derives from the Walkers logo used in 1990. The company is still a significant presence in Leicester. Gary Lineker, the Leicester-born former footballer, is now the face of the company. In 2000, Lineker’s Walkers commercials were ranked ninth in Channel 4’s UK wide poll of the "100 Greatest Adverts". [16] The official website states that an estimated "11 million people will eat a Walkers product every day". [17] The company employs over 4,000 people in 15 locations around the UK. [18]

In June 1999, PepsiCo transferred ownership of its Walkers brands out of Britain and into a Swiss subsidiary, Frito-Lay Trading GmbH. [19] Subsequently, according to Čuvar, UK tax authorities managed to claw back less than a third of what they might have received had an unchanged structure continued producing the same sort of level of UK profits and tax as Walkers Snack Foods had in 1998. [19] In 2001, Walkers ran a "Moneybags" promotion where £20, £10 and £5 notes were placed in special winning bags. This was very popular. However, two workers at a crisp factory were sacked after stealing cash prizes from bags on the production line. [20]

In February 2006, Walkers changed its brand label and typeset. It also announced it would reduce the saturated fat in its crisps by 70%. [21] It started frying its crisps in "SunSeed" oil, as claiming the oil is higher in monounsaturated fat content than the standard sunflower oil which it had used previously, [22] establishing its own sunflower farms in Ukraine and Spain to be able to produce sufficient quantities of the oil. Walkers updated its packaging style in June 2007, moving to a brand identity reminiscent of the logo used from 1998–2006.

Many of Walkers brands were formerly branded under the Smiths Crisps name. This comes from the time when Walkers, Smiths and Tudor Crisps were the three main brands of Nabisco's UK snack division, with Tudor being marketed mainly in the north of England and Smiths in the south. After the takeover by PepsiCo, the Tudor name was dropped, and the Smiths brand has become secondary to Walkers. The only products retaining the Smiths brand are Salt & Vinegar and Ready Salted Chipsticks, Frazzles and the "Savoury Selection", which includes Bacon Flavour Fries, Scampi Flavour Fries and Cheese Flavoured Moments.

To promote the freshness of its products, Walkers began to package them in foil bags from 1993, then from 1996, began filling them with nitrogen instead of air. [23]

In 1997, Walkers became the brand name of Quavers and Monster Munch snacks. In January 1999, Walkers launched Max, a brand with a range of crisps and then a new-look Quavers in March 1999. In April 2000, another of the Max flavours called Red Hot Max was launched and then Naked Max in June 2000. In February 2000, a new-look Cheetos was relaunched, serving as the only cheesy snack in the UK. In July 2000, Quavers were relaunched and then a picture of the multipack. In March 2001, Walkers bought Squares, a range of snacks from Smiths. in. November 2001, more Max flavours were introduced. They included chargrilled steak and chip shop curry.

In May 2002, Walkers launched Sensations. Sensations flavours include Thai Sweet Chilli, Roast Chicken & Thyme, Balsamic Vinegar & Caramelised Onion. [24] Walkers introduced the streaky bacon Quavers flavour to salt & vinegar and prawn cocktail in August 2002.

In January 2003, Smiths brands Salt 'n' Shake, Scampi Fries and Bacon Fries were relaunched under the Walkers identity. In January 2003 Walkers bought Wotsits from Golden Wonder, which replaced Cheetos during December 2002. In April 2004, Walkers launched a Flamin' Hot version of Wotsits, which replaced BBQ beef, and then Wotsits Twisted, a range of cheese puffs in July 2004. In September 2007, Walkers launched Sunbites, a healthier range of lower/better fat crisps made using whole grains. [25]

In July 2008, Walkers launched its "Do Us a Flavour" campaign, challenging the public to think up unique flavours for its crisps. In January 2009 six flavours were chosen from among the entries and released as special editions, available until May 2009. During this period, consumers could vote on their favourite, and the winner would become a permanent flavour. [9] The winner was Builder's Breakfast by Emma Rushin from Belper in Derbyshire. This flavour was discontinued a year later, in May 2010, in order for Walkers to focus on the upcoming 'Flavour Cup'.

In summer 2009, Walkers launched its premium "Red Sky" brand of "all natural" potato crisps and snacks. [26] It was stated that Red Sky products were made from 100% natural ingredients, and that the makers "work in partnership with Cool Earth", a charity that protects endangered rainforest Walkers made charitable donations proportionate to the number of purchases of Red Sky snacks. Walkers discontinued the range in 2014 following poor sales. [27]

In April 2010, the company launched a promotional campaign entitled the Walkers Flavour Cup in order to locate the world's most loved and favourite flavour. [28] In the end, it was decided that the flavour with the most fans at the end of the tournament/competition would be declared the winner and ultimate champion of all flavours. Walkers encouraged people to engage in social media activity, and upload photos and videos to its website proving people's Superfan status of Walkers Crisps. The best fan from each of the 15 flavours won £10,000. [29] In the end, English roast beef & Yorkshire pudding won the Flavour Cup. [30]

For the 2011 Comic Relief, four celebrities (Jimmy Carr, Stephen Fry, Al Murray and Frank Skinner) each represented four new flavours. [31] In early 2013, Walkers revised its packaging, with a new design and typeface. Slogans such as 'Distinctively Salt & Vinegar' and 'Classically Ready Salted' were added to the front of packs. The previous packaging design had only existed for 12 months. Along with this packaging design, there came news that the company would begin using real meat products in its Smoky Bacon and Roast Chicken flavoured crisps. [32] This prompted substantial opposition from vegetarians, vegans, Muslims and Jews, who were now unable to eat the crisps.

In 2014, Lineker launched a new "Do Us a Flavour" Walkers competition which encouraged people to submit new flavours of crisps, with the best six being sold later in the year before a public vote to decide the winner. The winner would win £1m. [33] The public had to pick one of Walkers' ingredients as a base – Somerset Cheddar, Devonshire chicken, Norfolk pork, Dorset sour cream, Vale of Evesham tomatoes and Aberdeen Angus beef – then choose their own unique flavour. [33]

In August 2015, Walkers launched the "Bring me Back" campaign, reintroducing the barbecue, cheese and chive, beef and onion, lamb and mint and toasted cheese flavours for a limited time. People could vote on the Walkers website or use hashtags to see which flavour would be reintroduced permanently. The Marmite flavour was also brought back permanently to coincide with the promotion.

On 10 April 2016, Walkers launched the Spell and Go promotion, again fronted by Gary Lineker. This competition caused some controversy as customers complained that it was impossible to win. The fairness of the competition was discussed on You and Yours, the consumer show on BBC Radio 4. Over 100 entrants complained to the Advertising Standards Authority, who after completing an investigation, decided that elements were misleading, and the competition was banned. [34]

As of 2018, Walkers came under pressure from campaigners to change its packaging due to its contribution to litter and plastic pollution. [35] As part of the protest a marine biology student wore a crisp packet dress to her graduation. She claimed the dress was inspired by litter she had seen on a beach. [36] In September 2018, the Royal Mail appealed to customers to stop posting empty crisp packets to Walkers, which campaigners had asked people to do and "flood Walkers social media with pictures of us popping them in the post". Royal Mail was obliged by law to deliver the bags to Walkers' freepost address, but without envelopes they could not go through machines and must be sorted by hand, causing delays. [37]

Core crisps Edit

Walkers most common flavours of regular crisp are ready salted (sold in a red packet), salt & vinegar (green), cheese & onion (blue), smoky bacon (maroon) and prawn cocktail (pink). Other flavours are sold in other coloured packets, such as beef & onion (brown), Marmite (black), and Worcester sauce (purple).

Some flavours were made available for a short time either because they tied in with special promotions, or failed to meet sales expectations. Walker's "Great British Dinner" range included baked ham & mustard and chicken tikka. A series of "mystery flavours" were launched in 2012, and later revealed to be sour cream & spring onion, Lincolnshire sausage & brown sauce, and Birmingham chicken balti. [39] In 2016, Walkers produced a limited edition 'Winners - Salt and Victory' crisps to commemorate its home-town football team, Leicester City, winning the Premier League for the first time. [40] Earlier that season, Walkers had given Leicester fans in attendance at a match versus Chelsea bags of "Vardy salted" crisps, bearing the image of the Foxes' striker. [41]

In January 2019, Walkers unveiled new packaging for its main range, celebrating its British heritage through its design. The new packaging features the Walkers logo in the middle of each packet rather than centre-top, alongside a new series of illustrations which are laid out in the shape of a Union Jack flag, and feature icons and landmarks such as London’s Big Ben and red telephone boxes, and Liverpool’s Liver Building. [45]

According to the environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy, Walkers crisps packets along with Cadbury chocolate wrappers and Coca-Cola cans were the three top brands that were the most common pieces of rubbish found in UK streets in 2013. [46] In December 2018, Walkers launched a recycling scheme for crisp packets after it was targeted by protests on the issue. Three months after its launch more than half a million empty packets were recycled. [47] However, as UK consumers eat 6 billion packets of crisps per year, with Walkers producing 11 million packets per day, the campaign organisation 38 Degrees noted this represents only a small fraction of the number of packets made and sold annually.
