And I must point out that the slave of bible days had a guaranteed means of redemption, with the only exception being an Old Testament practice of what would have been a freed servant voluntarily dedicating himself forever to a family. Compare to America’s pre-bellum implementation in which if a master did not want to give up a slave he was no more impelled to than he was to sell his house to a comer with enough money.
And so what if few SOLDIERS owned slaves. How many of those who perished in the 9/11 attacks were veterans compared to civilians? That didn’t change the result did it?
I say “oranges”; you hear “apples” - and self-righteously so IMO. I am NOT wishing slavery back into existence; I do my own work. The cynical “Harry Reid” Dhimmicrat attitude toward blacks has rendered them sadly diminished & I suppose technically they’ve collected a sad form of “reparations” by way of welfare ever since before LBJ declared the “Waw on Poverty”. - Obama’s thrust to stir up hatred in this country has been . . successful; if that’s how one defines success.
We have enough trouble NOW without trying to fight the “War of Northern Aggression” over again. :o)
