A slave is owned by his master; he is property. He is not paid for his labor.
If he is rented out, his owner is paid for the slave 's labor. If he re-produces, his children are the property of the owner, like horses. THAT is slavery."
You are wrong - again!
I know very well what constitutes real
slavery. Apparently you don't.
You are not alone. Most Americans think Lincoln ended slavery because biased historians continued to write books to retain the myth to protect their financial and social interests.
I suggest you read a very important book: Slavery by Another Name: The Re-Enslavement of Black Americans from the Civil War to World War II, by
Douglas A. Blackmon.
Mr. Blackmon, a White man who was raised in Mississippi, goes far beyond these traditional understandings of racial practices, and brings new, deeper knowledge of how slavery had merely been retooled to accommodate the unforeseen realities of emancipation, allowing it to flourish for many more decades in what Blackmon calls the "Age of Neoslavery".
Such Neoslavery did not end until the start of World War II, when President Roosevelt ordered the Justice Department to immediately begin enforcing the existing anti-slavery laws. The enforcement failure continuation of the Federal and the State Governments illuminates both the real human tragedy and the profoundly corrupting nature of the Old South slavery as it transformed to establish a New South social order.”
It took over thirty more years before Federal Laws finally put an end to Neoslavery. We still are trying to live up to the reformed Civil Rights Movement. That's why I chose President Lyndon Johnson as one of the three best presidents, despite his terrible mistakes in the Vietnam war. He finally achieved Lincoln's limited goals.
