‘SNL’ Rape Jokes ~ "I’d just keep popping them out.”
Celia, an enslaved 19 year old, duly sworn, enslaved by Robert Newsom says that she killed her rapist slaver on the night of the 23rd day of June 1855-- about two hours after dark by striking him twice on the head with a stick, and then put his body on the fire and burnt it nearly up, then took up the ashes on the morning after daylight. After breakfast, the bones were not entirely burnt up. I took up the ashes and bones out of the fireplace in my cabin where I burnt the body and emptied them on the right hand side of the path leading from my cabin to the stable.
Sworn to + attested before us on this 25th day of June 1855
