Slavery in the 1960s

No it isn't a typo. During work, the person I was working with and myself got into a discussion about races that continually get the short stick, he being a history major told me of this story.

Life as Slaves (till the early 60's)

Basically this guy kept slaves with no one knowing. It may sound mean but the slave owner did one hell of a job keeping it under raps. Any way I dont know if any of you heard about this or not. It is an old story.

At this moment there's slavery out there in the wide world. Not an enviable position to find oneself in.

BTW: Would you ever indenture yourself for any reason?

a Buddy had a neighbor in Gaithersburg MD that was a diplomat from an African Country.

The neighbor had a live in housekeeper that was discovered to be a slave

I had the same thing happen to me in the late 80's/early 90's.

Then I divorced the bitch.

The comments said it was a hoax. I dont know i could not find the original story. But apparently the guy said they could leave but never did. If it is fake so be it, still is an interesting thought

Ironic how the prison system was conceived and implemented just a year after slavery was abolished.... and the same people who were once slaves had no means to fend for themselves, so wound up in prison doing state organized labor (building roads, digging irrigation trenches etc).. and for NO PAY. Hmmmm... forced labor with no pay sound familiar? This continues to this day.

So.. .1 person forced to work for no pay is bad, but 1,000,000 is the penal system. Just like killing 1 person is murder, but 1,000,000 is government policy.

I dont know, most of the people in prison today broke laws, that arent some sort of Jim Crow law.

You want tehm all released? All of them?

Are there some good people caught up in the system. I bet there are. Lets hope tehy get woked out and get the justice they deserve. But there are too many who get soft justice who deserve long hard time, but instead get TV, 3 squares a day and a chance to lounge for most of their lives.
