It's hard to believe that slavery was a common thing at one time but it was. Take a look back at how things used to be.

And we still have people in the US who think that slaves were better off. And they believe things really weren't that bad.

It's astonishing that the "History of Slavery" seems to have begun in the US? Because I'm pretty sure that slavery was integral to China, Rome, and pretty much every Empire before the British, the Americans were in fact quite late to the game, and used slaves for a shorter span of time than pretty much any other large, industrialized country in history.
In fact, the first use of slaves in the modern era in the Western world was....the WHITE slaves captured and used by the Turks and North African pirates.
Where's my reparations?

It's a good thing white people forced the entire world to abolish slavery.

Of course unofficially black people still enslave other humans in places like Haiti, Sudan Mauritania and Niger.
