    Wrong again, and not a surprise at all.

    They were purchased because they were a cheap source of labor. Period.
    Just as the Irish and Chinese were.

    And your denial of it says all we need to know.

    Race can only be a factor when they are considered human.
    they were not considered human, BECAUSE of their race.

    lol

    If they were not considered human, Race can play no role.
    Because they would not be considered a race of humans. Duh!
    Race is dependent on there being human.

    That wouldn't make much sense to me, but I know it happened. I'm not going to say my political ideology came from perfection or is perfect because like every other political view...there are flaws. No one view is absolute and I wish people could come to that consensus in our country.

    Libertarianism is not the end all be all, but I find it to hold most of my beliefs which is why I am a Libertarian. I am also a free thinker and an individual. I hold that closer then any political affiliation.

    Slave ownership goes against the very idea of Libertarianism. I know early Libertarians were that and it contradicted the views, but what political view has no holes in it?
    Libertarian and Atheist...wow I'm a hated man.

    black Africans were not considered fully-human because of their race & origin.

    slaves were considered 3/5ths of a human being when our nation was founded.

    It was because they were a cheap source of labor.

    No one says - Hey I am going to buy this servant because I think they are inferior.
    They buy them because they are a cheap source of labor. Just as with the Irish and the Chinese.

    But the original seller may be selling them because they are believed inferior.

    That compromise has nothing to do with what we are discussing.

    You are seeing what you want to see, not what is actually there.
