Remember the slave, The Slaves, THE SLAVES!
Are you talking about the black slaves from the Carribean and Africa, or are you talking about the white slaves from England, Scotland, Ireland, Italy and surrounding countries that nobody talks about because everyone has forgot?
I think its important to talk about and discuss history regarding our horrible past because if we dont and only focus on certain aspects of it instead of all of it you have situations like above where everyone focuses on the black slaves that worked in the cotton fields in the south, but forget about the white slaves that worked in the coal mines and ship yards of the north east.
I completely agree, but then again, no one remembers that Stalin killed 20 million of his own people. I guess if it's not a minority, it doesn't matter...
