This appears to be the sort of entertainment for the likes of Franky-boy and SMS.

While I was watching it they were talking about the US having a great deal of trouble facing up to our racist past.

Can you just imagine that? The country with probably the longest history of slavery making comments like that? Those that they didn't sell into slavery or enslave in foreign countries, they shipped of to Australian to die. They supported the South African regime until the English people wouldn't have it any longer. And this bunch of uneducated pedal pushers make comments about other countries.

No country has the 'longest history of slavery' given universal
prehistory possibly including Denisovans and Neandertals. Sheesh.* You
also ignore the many current examples which are not diminishing at all.


Agreed. I get very tired of the myth that American colonists invented
slavery, or that only blacks were slaves and only whites were masters.

In fact, I'm starting to object to the word "white" as a racial descriptor.

I'm not white! I'm sort of tan, dammit, and that makes ME a "person of
color tan!" "White" is offensive!!

AP style handbook now calls for the word 'black' to always
be capitalized but never 'white'. This crap not only never
ends but it seems that some lives are considered less
meaningful than others:

Milwaukee police don't see any particular urgency to this case.

We have absolutely no reason to believe that slavery was pre-homo sapiens.
And while you might say that slavery was a way of life pre-historic it was not generally in the manner of modern slavery as of the time of Kings and other royalty.

What do you mean by "modern examples"? Certainly the slave trade is still active in Africa but it is more or less trapped there with the rest of the world frowning upon it. Although China holds entire racial groups in slavery We are reacting to it. China also holds fully a third of their population in forced labor which is another phrase for slavery.

The result of this before simply caused secret voting where people would claim one thing and do another in the secrecy of the voting booth. As for the police - what can they do with everything to do do being attacked by the media and BLM?

Would ants qualify as pre homo sapien?
"Slave-making ant"

Yep. Times change. In the good old days there was quite a bit of
volunteer slavery. That's where a family or larger group could not
effectively feed themselves and sold either family members for the
food they needed, or sold the entire family in trade for protection.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voluntary_slavery
There were also various borderline version of slavery. The term
"bondman" or "indentured servant" is sometimes used to describe
temporary voluntary slavery, where there are term limits or things
that needed to be accomplished before the slave is released. There
are those who will argue that sharecropping is a form of slavery:
https://www.pbs.org/tpt/slavery-by-another-name/themes/sharecropping/
"Approximately two-thirds of all sharecroppers were white,
and one third were black."

At some point, we will need to draw the line between slavery for
mutual economic or social benefits, and the general loss of civil
right such as being treated as property. The current protests will
probably move the line a little, but I doubt if they will completely
erase the practice.
