"...you know times are hard when we have to define what slaves were."

------------------

Oh.. re-writing history is nothing new. I'm sure the time will come where there will be discussion and denial that slavery ever existed.

Quote of the day belongs to DL. Hughley :

“Just so we’re clear, comparing immigrants to slaves is like saying that Jeffrey Dahmer’s victims were dinner guests,”

Fair point, and I'll add that there were many different experiences of those who were indentured servants.

The same as the term slavery can not accurately describe every slave's circumstances completely, some of the indentured had far different experiences than did others.

And I'm not saying the too are synonymous in any way, uet both were important.

I have no idea. I did a Google search. It appears that as demand grew, servitude turned to slavery and the conditions grew worse for the slaves.

I read a bit about how indentured servants may have actually been better off than people that come here free because they had 25 acres and a years worth of staples such as corn to start. Of course, they had to survive the harsh years of servitude before that.

DD, your knowledge about pre-1654 African servitude is greater than mine, and looking at the Carson quote I posted, I have to ask if you know whether the pre-1654 Africans who were indentured servants were transported in slave ships. Carson's statement is rather vague on this point. "There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less."
