Slavery of all forms has existed for thousabds of years. It's actually worryig that Americans see it as something completely synonymous to the one they had.
I have mixed feelings on it. Couple it with post 18th century contemporary thought and it's terrible. Though on a historical context it was fairly common, essential to everyday life (the line is grey with serfdom as well). Though objectively I do not believe that an owner has a right to his slaves' children's lives nor is he free to commit any violence against his slaves.
