Themes in Mandingo Slave breeding In Slave Breeding: Sex, Violence, and Memory in African American History, Gregory Smithers traces the history of coercive reproductive and sexual practices in the Antebellum South, as well as reactions and denials of the practice of slave breeding by historians throughout the twentieth century.
Smithers goes into great detail about Mandingo, a novel that is explicitly about slave breeding. In the novel, Warren Maxwell, owner of the Falconhurst plantation, reiterates time and again that cotton is not a reliable crop and the real money is in breeding "niggers". Over the course of the novel, four female slaves give birth and another miscarries , and in each instance the Maxwells give the slaves a dollar and a new dress.

The Maxwells, particularly the elder Warren, wax poetic about slave breeding, arguing that while slaves with white or "human" as the Maxwells put it in the novel blood are smarter and better looking, purebred Mandingos are among the strongest and most submissive slaves.
While Hammond Maxwell is more interested in satisfying his own sexual appetites and preparing his prize slave, Mede, for fights, Warren Maxwell spends much time planning how to mate various slaves to produce the best "suckers". There is much discussion over the virility of male slaves, such as when the cook, Lucretia Borgia , and Warren Maxwell have a discussion about who the father of her baby is: "So that Napoleon boy I give you had a nigger in him after all?

When he visits the Woodfords and meets his future wife, Blanche, Hammond shares a bed with Charles Woodford and is given a slave to have sex with.
Wilson, gives Hammond a slave, Ellen, to sleep with. The white men in Mandingo take for granted their entitlement to sleep with female slaves, and offering a "bed wench" to a male guest is part of the code of southern hospitality. However, there are limits to the actions and feelings that are acceptable between black women and white men.

As pointed out above, Hammond is shocked when he sees Charles and Katy kiss on the lips: "It was disgust, bordering upon nausea, that a white man should assume an amatory equality with a Negro wench. It was beneath the dignity of his race — somehow bestial.
But unlike a white man having sex with a black woman, a white woman voluntarily having sex with a black man is so beyond the parameters of acceptable behavior, it can only be punished by death. Sexual relations between white women and black men The cultural taboo of white women having sex with black male slaves in Mandingo is filtered through the mind and experiences of Hammond Maxwell.
The issue is not brought up until chapter 35, when Hammond sells a male slave to a German woman. The men Hammond is with understand and are amused by the fact that the woman is obviously downloading the slave for sex. You wrong.
After Blanche sleeps with Mede, she pierces his ears with the earrings Hammond got for her of which there was an identical pair for Ellen as a way to "mark" Mede as hers and also retaliate at Hammond.
That his wife, a white woman, should have willing carnal commerce with a Negro Although he certainly does not announce his intentions, both the doctor and his father know he is going to murder Blanche and neither one stops him because "who could blame the young husband?
