Ask R.Kelly. He's keeping women chained up in his basement so they could be his sex slaves.

That's actually not a bad question. Slavery didn't happen for no reason. Questions like that are part of the process of learning.

That not the question that was asked. They are not asking what caused or led to slavery. So, you can stop with the bullshit.

Not good things that came from slavery but good reasons for slavery, basically "what are the benefits of slavery ?". No reason is good enough obviously.

I'm still failing to see how that is considered a good question?

That's an inevitable question though. When you make an opinion you weigh both the pros and cons. It's not particularly a good question but it isn't a bad one.

It's a leading question.

"Good reasons for >issue< " subtly implies that there exists at least one good reason for >issue<, when it's possible that there could be none.   

This was a homework for kids, whose critical thinking skills are usually at a developmental stage.

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.
