    This guy's head will explode if whites don't invite black people everywhere and have the audacity to have something of their own.

    Isn’t the assumption that the word “slave” automatically refers to black slaves racist?

    I love those people revolting against things that happened 80 or 140 years ago but will never change their way of life to change a nowodays injustice.

    No, considering there were no white slaves in america. is it the usual ignorance of the liberal left or a more sinister indoctrination of white folk?

    Good thing those Suffragette Beckys didn't have cell phones back in the day or they would be too busy calling the police on black people to organize the right to vote.

    There will still be people under effective slavery today in America, of all colours and backgrounds. Certainly throughout history around the world, slavery has been a sad constant, again with victims of all colours and backgrounds. There is no time or place limitation on the use of the word in this generic slogan, either when it was first coined or as it is being used today, and so no justification to object to it as if the word is exclusively owned by the black slaves of colonial North America.

    considering there were no white slaves in america its kinda obvious these white american women were referring to so- called blacks. like they even know about any other kind of slavery ever, youre giving these women way too much credit.

    dont even know where youre going with this, do you have a point or something you want to raise?

    You’re in no position to question their knowledge when you assert that there were never any white slaves in America (and no, I’m not referring to indentured servants).

    I was challenging the implication that nobody should ever be permitted to use the word “slavery” unless they’re referring to black Africans during the colonial period in North America. Given that there are slaves all over the world today, it is a misleading and dangerous attitude to hold. The African slavery in America (and Europe) was a horrific crime and should never be forgotten but it isn’t the be-all and end-all.

    So nobody is allowed to talk about current issues like sex slavery, domestic slavery or forced marriage unless the victims are black Africans in America? And nobody is permitted to use the word “slavery” by its general definition at all? Every single use of the word must have direct relevance to black slaves in colonial America?

    talking about slavery on an american forum means Chattel Slavery. if you want to talk about sex slavery or domestic slavery then go join an eastern european forum or saudi forum respectively and quit being pedantic.
