      The physicality or the tangible slavery machine was outlawed but slavery and its lasting effects still haunt the world the psyche of the offspring. Welfare isn't slavery but the love of superficiality through money and power leaves many in the constant throws of another's mercies :slavery!

      Slavery ended where? You are obviously not educated even if you can read and write. Your comments show you to be obtuse and fearful. But it ok research which country holds the most people under indentured servitude and you will find is America. So stop being a jack***** in public forums. Hold all that hate you spew for your fellow countrymen you *****hat!
