Slavery will always exist in some form, at some level unless society goes totally communist economically.

In the USA, the guy working a minimum wage job, in debt up to his ears, is basically a slave by many definitions.

They can't just throw a ball and chain on you anymore, but they can create a system that forces people into a situation where they must live and work like slaves.

I think he must have some looped video clip running in his head that says most whites in America are "slavery deniers".

Then the slaves will just be the people, working and slaving for the political elites.

Theoretically there could be a communist system without any political elites in which power is equal for absolutely everybody.

It is totally unrealistic in todays world. But maybe hundreds of years into the future some kind of system like that would be possible.

I have noticed this issue has now come up very regular. It's like someone trying to start a forest fire but the truth seems to lower the flames. I hope they all see that we are all Americans and all have a history of unfairness.

Whoa! Wait a minute, pal! Here is a typical debate tactic of some here on CD that is being used to start a thread. Wow!

You say something that is completely ridiculous, attribute that to someone and then proceed to argue against it. Your premise is incorrect, friend!

I've not heard anyone deny that slavery happened. Not anywhere including here on CD. Have you? Really?

Is this really what black folks think? They really think that folks are denying that slavery happed? No wonder so many blacks are angry and bitter. Slavery happened and it was real bad for everyone for so many different reasons. My goodness gracious is this a poor thread.
