No. Haiti is the example. It's a miracle the chaos of Reconstruction didn't create a new Haiti.

Alex Haley wrote before the "I love myself" feel good movement.

Roots: The Saga of an American Family, p.71.

One massah, one world, one holy & hallow plantation.

Again the same slaver sidekicks from the man-children that were enthusiastic collaborators of the slave trade, were the same ones that opened up the continent later to neo-national socialist settlers & fascist corporatists.

The same ones who attacked the Beledi, authocthnous, ancestors of the Twa, Mbuti & Saab or Khoisan people (as well as the aboriginal fauna & flora of the continental interior for the love & loyalty of massah & the plantation).

The plantation generations & the musta'afarangi, the mezo-ferengi.

No.

Violent uprisings were insufficient.

Freedom only available from loss of economy within the South or by "foreign" intervention from the North or outside of the US.

Now the coastal area from Cacheu to what is now Angola as well as Mozambique (& later Zangibar in order to build the highland settler colonies) were where the Atlantic plantation system that grew into the globalist plantation system was born.

This was born 1419-1420 & has been ongoing ever since.

By the time of Columbus it was already a well-oiled machine even before it was exported to the Americas, the Pacific, the East Indies etc (though they had to tweak it somewhat throughout time & space).

So here are some tidbits about the slaver sidekicks from outside of the Atlantic area, courtesy of the school of Blumenbach.

Travels in Nubia: by the late John Lewis Burckhardt: p.305; p.328; p.329; p.364;

Political essay on the kingdom of New Spain: p.130;

Many relate the culinary traditions of the coloured folk of the former Confederate cultural milieu to the time of plantation but I think I may also have discovered where the fixation with a certain standard of beauty which came out of the creole culture on the other shore of the atlantic plantation.

The modern part of An universal history, volume 13, p.425-426.

Slaves may have been trapped in a world where their survival depended on the survival of the plantation system. They could have destroyed the cotton crop or better yet destroyed the corn crop year after year. Corn was crucial to the systems profitability.
