Children born from slave mothers and white fathers – mulattos – experienced far more difficulties than did other children. They must always fear the wrath of the slaveowner's wife; their presence was a constant reminder of her husband's infidelity (slave owners raped their female slaves). The slaveowner himself must watch his white sons abuse their black brothers. It is actually best if he sells these children to another slaveholder.
