Slavery lasted longer than the colonist would tolerate the Government of King George and revolted, yet we have an apologist for slavery in America, Micheal Medved. Read his Townhall column. I have to thank the field negro for keeping us informed. Item is in his sidebar so its not linkable.

As a person whose ancestors were slaves; I say even if it this was the practice of millennia does not make it morally right. To deny liberty of a human and to own their person, it is wrong. It is not dependent on how the slave was treated, the amount of movement allowed, the price of a slave or the intent of the master.

I am not moved by the fact that if I was still African that my life would be in chaos. I do not think slavery has brought the black out of darkness in America and I have expressed this before
here and here.

I just want to scream every time I read or hear this rhetoric!

Make me wanna holler
They way they do my life.

Update: the field negro has posted about the article, What's a little slavery among friends?

Thanks for keeping this out there yourself. At least I know I am not alone.
