Or maybe the slaves purposely screwed up in retaliation for being slaves. Tell you what -- let's ship you to a plantation so you can harvest cotton or tobacco for 14 hours a day in return for poor food and housing, and see how much you screw up.

And being freed from slavery allowed black people to live just as long as white people. Funny, that.
And yeah, people tend to be unproductive when they're poorly housed, barely fed, sick, dying, and have the lowest morale you can imagine.

If slaves were so damn useless, why did their owners pay large sums for them?
Who is really the idiot in that scenario?

"I can’t find statistics anywhere for this..."
Colour me shocked.
Oh, and fuck off and die.
6/23/2010 8:27:07 AM
You've got that backwards, dumbass. White people were living off of hard-working Africans.

Let me guess, one of these days, bang, zoom, to the moon, right?

I'm not normally a violent person but I wish it were legal to physically beat you to within an inch of your life for being this stupid.
6/23/2010 10:22:54 AM
Oh yes, such a great life being owned by another (white) person who worked you every day until you couldn't work any more. That would make me want to live another 10 years. I don't know why those blacks are so upset over slavery. They should be thanking each & every one of us white people for having such great ancestors.

Let's see how you feel after three weeks of working in a field and being housed in a shed, after being stuffed in a boat for a month and sold to people who don't speak your language and beat you when you don't understand. I'm sure increasing productivity will be the first thing on your mind.

"I can’t find statistics anywhere for this but I’m sure niggers were very unproductive as slaves"
Your imagination sounds like a reliable source..sure, I'll buy that one for a dollar!

"I can't find facts so I just make them up."
6/23/2010 5:40:26 PM
"I can’t find statistics anywhere for this but I’m sure niggers were very unproductive as slaves..."
If they were unproductive, they were beaten mercilessly.
Or sold off.
Or just killed since, hey, they're just useless animals, right?
Oh, and you're giving Ralph Kramden a bad name, jackass.

Tough to find statistics that don't exist.
6/24/2010 4:12:39 AM
They increased their life expectancy?, look for statistics of the SIXTY MILLION death Africans in the plantation. Or the fact that only survived 25% of the slaves caged in the ship.

I read about the afterlife
"I can't find statistics anywhere for this but"
But nothing. If you can't find statistics, you can't state it as fact.

"I can’t find statistics anywhere for this"
I wonder why?

The reality was that slaves were very GOOD workers, despite often harsh conditions. One major reason that "poor white trash" in the South supported slavery even though they did not own slaves themselves was that they feared that mass manumission of slaves would throw so many competent workers into the labor pool that they would be unable to compete. Of course, not every slavemaster was a Simon Legree, but there certainly were abject cruelties. There were also kindnesses on the part of slavemasters toward their slaves, but that does not justify slavery.

Yeah, wow, thirty whole years of slavery. Wow, what lucky people. You slave-owners sure were generous to steal an indiginous people from their homeland, truck them across the ocean, clap them in irons, and make them pick your fucking cotton for you under threat of death, just so they could live an extra ten fucking years, spending that extra decade as your fucking slaves. Aren't you a humanitarian?
Seriously, were white Southern Americans like, pathologically afraid of cotton or some shit? I can understand racism almost, as a fear of the "other", but slavery I just do not get! Why couldn't white people pick their own g'damned cotton??

"I can’t find statistics anywhere for this but I’m sure....."
A perfect display of the basis of right-wing thinking in these few words.

You're white trash scum.
11/5/2011 7:04:07 PM
Do all you racist dirt bags live in the same trailor park?
11/5/2011 7:05:58 PM
Damn, you can't make it up. All the same, they do.
