Except that you aren't against slavery for noble reasons. You are only interested in yourself. Yes, I'm sure there were a few enlightened, compassionate souls in the South, but 'enlightened' is not a word that springs to mind when it comes to you. And the attitude at the time was that black people weren't actually human, therefore having them as slaves was perfectly acceptable.henry quirk wrote: ↑Wed Jan 19, 2022 11:53 am veg,
You are from the deep south. The bible belt. Do you really think you would have thought this way if you were living in the 1850s?
lots of folks, in 1850, in the deep south bible belt, opposed slavery becuz they recognized and respected a man self-possesses
and today, all over the modern, enlightened, world, there are lots of folks who enslave others: it's an industry
You would have been whipping those slaves harder than anyone
