It is from the narrative of the life off fredrick Douglass found on page 49. I need a detailed description of that passage for dialectical journals I have to write.

Douglass is referring to the fact that his father was white, but the fact that his father was a white man had no effect on his purpose. Douglass saw the fathering of "slave" children who inherited their mother's condition to be a two-fold arrangement, as the "master" was able to not only satisfy his own lustful desires but profit from another addition to his wealth.
