    Nah, you used the many colors of slave from all over the Empire built on slavery. The number of slaves was restricted in England herself to protect from revolt. Your own poor picked up the slack.

    The only place I have ever heard anyone call Obama that was on TV and read it here. But then it was mostly someone telling us over and over again how someone they knew called Obama this.

    I live in modern Oregon and my friends are mostly my generation when we were taught that there was no difference between colors except for the color, that we were all Americans. As you probably don't know since you're so young, before the stupid multiculturalism and PC bull****.
    Well that must be nice. You must live in a pretty good area with educated people, because I think most people in this country have heard someone call him that on a regular basis.

    As I said they were a commodity..there were not any ''slave sales'' or any ''slave auctions''..because the poor people in England were virtually slaves themselves..

    When they were no longer able to work or ill..they went into the ''workhouse''

    Victorian Workhouses - The Workhouse

    I don't think anyone over here could afford a black slave..

    Not even our Gentry..

    That's encouraging to know. It seems there is quite the resistance to join the majority in this reality. I suppose there is some hope among in the liberal camps after all.

    So I guess education allows people to separate the uninformed people spreading racist lies, from the informed people who know disagreement over policy is not based on color of skin. No wonder the uninformed work so hard to keep people thinking just like them.

    Right. Let me know more of this fairy tale land where racism no longer exists. LOL

    You do realize that many of the people from the Jim Crow era are still alive, right?

    I don't think he had much effect.
    "We have more responsibility than power, I think. The newspaper can create great controversies, stir up arguments within the community or discussion, can throw light on injustices....just as it can do the opposite. It can hide things and be a great power for evil." -- Rupert Murdoch, 1968
