Those academics who insist that slavery is an exclusively Black racial condition forget or deliberately omit the fact that the word slave originally was a reference to Whites of East European origin - "Slavs."
But, it fits negros so much better.

Negro slave.......has a nice ring to it.

Slavery would have worked much better if the blacks were not so damn lazy.

Whats really funny is that you meatheads would have been farm labor as well. Just like slaves. Most of you inbred rednecks were field workers for rich plantation owners. Read some history, dumbazzes, The very few rich ruled the majority of this country. You think now because you rent or are buying a crackerbox that you have something. I am sure a large majority (that means alot) of you are 2 paychecks away from taking your ugly children and bucktoothed woman to live with your mama.

BLAH BLAH BLAH cowards, a lateg percentage of you will live miserable poor wretched lives and die mean bitter unloved fools. What a wonderful and entertaining thought.

HAHAHA Kiss MY Azz, wage slaves.

<quoted text>Your right I don't know what it was like to grow up a poor black child, but then you don't know what it was like to be treated like a jew. The point I was making is you don't see Jews playing what is known as the race card. You don't see the Jews wanting an apology for what happened to us. Yes there are alot of simularities like being burned alive, hung, shot, living in unsuitable quarters. What happened was long ago. You had Abe Lincoln who set you all free, where was the US Goverment to help us, oh thats right sitting home without a care. This is a new time and era and everyone has a chance at becoming something, and if something is in the way then fight to get thru it, not the race card.
First off mushbean, Abe did not set us all free. At the same time he was passing the emancipation proclamation he was sending my ancestors to the reservations. Those who did not go were hunted down and killed. You claim that America did nothing for the plight of the Jew. Im not sure but I think if you will do a little research you will find that we had a little to do with the liberation of the death camps. Slavery is, was, and has been a cancer. It does not matter who or the color of the person that was a victim of this awful practice. Truth is, It made some very rich. Those who got rich were white. Thats the facts. I also understand your point about how this country stood by while Hitler was rounding up the jewish people and sending them off to the death camps. Those who were making money with the nazis like Charles Lindbergh and Prescott Bush (the former Presidents grandpappy). Both rich white men.

Richard Holloway, Sr., a free black of Charleston City, bought a slave named Charles Benford in order that the slave might enjoy his freedom. Yet at the same time, he owned other slaves who were not treated so kindly. In 1834, for instance, he purchased a Negro woman named Sarah and her two children, Annett and Edward, from Susan B. Robertson for $575. Within three years after the purchase, he apparently became dissatisfied with the slave family and sold them for $945. Even though Richard Holloway, Sr., allowed a trusted servant to enjoy a greater degree of freedom, he was still a slaveowner for profit. So he sold and purchased slaves as an investment even while he held other slaves for benevolent reasons. To consider him a benevolent master would be erroneous because he also exploited other slaves for his own benefit.

What does it matter that the person was boring? It was just an example that white people are being targeted for something that people of color were doing the same thing are excpecting that whites are to be giving appologies. Im not a racist by any means but I think fair is fair.

Blacks and Indians came to own, and abuse, whites in Virginia in such large numbers that in 1670 the House of Burgesses (legislature) proclaimed that " ... noe negro or Indian though baptyised and enjoyned their own ffreedome shall be capable of any purchase of christians, but yet not debarred from buying any of their own nation." [Original spelling.] "Christian" was a euphemism of the period for Caucasian. Virginia's Slave Code of 1705 provided: "That no negroes, mulattos, Indians, although christians, ore Jew, Moore, Mahometans, or other infidels, shall at any time, purchase any Christian, nor any other, except of their own complexion, or such as are declared slaves by this act.""[73]
