RE: I still don't understand. A (relatively very, very few) black folks

Whoa!!....Tinear, I never said slavery was OK. Good God man! Slavery was terrible...an abomination to mankind. If you read that into my posts, I apologize for leading you astray. Also, I apologize for any insults...heat of the moment for me in these troubled times

To sum it up, I don't believe tat our history should be torn down. I believe the Civil War was over states' rights, with slavery the reason for the disagreement. I think it wrong to consider the 300,000 Confederate soldiers as traitors and slave mongers. My opinion, and shared by many ( although not
this board).

As for slaves vs indentured servants...I think deporting entire families (not always I concede) against their will, to a foreign country to work for as much as 7 years is pretty darn close to slavery. Also, it was not unusual to work these indentured servants to death their final year. We can debate this likely forever.

Let's move on...take care.
