Slavery in the United States was little more than farming.

... on a massive scale, using forced labour.
Also mining with forced labour, and some manufacturing with forced labour.
It was the exploitation of forced labour.

So you were - farming "niggers"?
10/18/2012 4:08:53 AM
And that makes it ok?
10/18/2012 4:27:26 AM
Farmers =/= slaves.
There is a fundie word redefinition project, so why not a racist one too?

Except for, you know, that whole capturing humans, shipping them across an ocean, selling them as property, and forcing them to work against their will thing. Not to mention whipping them into submission when they tried to escape.

Farming is fucking hard work, especially back then when it was all done by hand and there were no machines like tractors and combines.

The obesity epidemic in the United States is little more than being pleasingly plump and big-boned.

"Slavery in the United States was little more than farming."
...with whipping, torture, rape, spoliation and separation of one's family.

I agree with most of my peers on this site that slavery was a bad thing- though not for the same reasons as they say. There was one MAJOR flaw with slavery as it existed in the U.S.: niggers.
Niggers are a failed species. Left to their own devices, they would wipe themselves out in an orgy of blood, rape and death within a generation. Two generations, TOPS.

Eraser, you indeed have a little sponge rubber pin head.

By the way the President of the most powerful country in the world is black; what is more he was elected by a larger proportion of the electorate than monkey brains Bush ever got.
This black skinned President successfully had the leader of the greatest attack on the US soil hunted down and killed, successfully saved the US auto industry, has made sure that the white 47%ers rampant in the Bible Belt can get medical treatment, ensured that women can get equal pay for equal work.
But don't let the evidence sway you, you'll just strain a muscle in your skull
10/18/2012 12:14:08 PM
Well, and slaves were livestock.
10/18/2012 12:14:42 PM
Because they weren't doing just fine for literally tens of thousands of years on their own without wiping themselves out right?
Or are you suggesting that Black Africans simply poofed into existence when Europeans landed on the continent?

"Niggers are a failed species. Left to their own devices, they would wipe themselves out in an orgy of blood, rape and death within a generation. Two generations, TOPS."
How come they've existed for so many thousands of years then?
10/18/2012 4:19:33 PM
Which means white folks are a failed species too, along with the Chinese, Native Americans, South Asians, Inuit, Polynesians, Aboriginal Australians and all the other races including you, cos we're all the SAME species, you dumb fuck.

Hell is little more than a blister.

"N____ are a failed species. Left to their own devices, they would wipe themselves out in an orgy of blood, rape and death within a generation. Two generations, TOPS."
Someone is living in fantasyland. If you could correctly describe a biological species, I will eat my hat. Black people are the same species as white people, and Micronesians, and Japanese people, and so on and so forth.
As for black people killing each other off in a "generation or two, tops," uh, no. Not even close. Even the most generous representation of that viewpoint- the example closest to your offensive stereotype of black people- the Sentinelese, have not gone extinct for
tens of thousands of years.
History time: Sentinel Island is a minuscule island in the Indian ocean, populated by the most isolated people on earth(by the way, they're black, but even after all these millennia they are not a separate species). The Sentinelese have a teeny tiny population, around 250, just barely enough to stave off extinction from genetic problems. They have lived on their island without much, if any, outside interference for about 60,000 years.... Mostly due to their severe xenophobia. They attack all outsiders, ergo, they've been "left to their own devices" all this time.
A ridiculously tiny, extremely violent culture.
Sixty. Fucking. Millennia.
Kinda ruins your hypothesis, doesn't it?
10/18/2012 11:28:37 PM
History refutes you.
These "niggers" have lived by their own devices for THOUSANDS of generations without wiping themselves out in an orgy of blood, rape and death.
Wherever they are still free to own land in their own traditional territorys, they farm peacefully, and make sellable goods for the export market.

What is it with Republicans trying to airbrush the past lately?

Forcing people to farm and be the property of other people?
Well, so long as they were growing stuff I guess that's okay then.

Do you understand what PLANTATION means?
