Buck breaking

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Buck breaking, or buck busting, is an internet meme used by the far-right to refer to the sexual abuse of male Black slaves by their white male masters.[1]


Several instances of sexual abuse of Black male slaves by their male masters have been documented in the historical record, such as in the 1861 book Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl by Harriet Jacobs, though such instances are much less commonly noted than those involving female slaves.[2]


The term gained popularity in 2021 when Tariq Nasheed, an American film producer, released a film bearing the name.[1] The two-hour-long film focuses on the purported use of rape and sexual assault of black men during slavery as a method of dehumanization and emasculation, and examines the legacy and impact.[1] The documentary has been described as having a large number of inaccuracies.[1] Variants of the term that originated from far-right platforms was popularized as a meme with racist connotations. It was used on the assault rifle of Payton Gendron in the 2022 Buffalo shooting, where he murdered ten people.[3][1]
