American slavery was different than the other forms of slavery many of you are referring to. Even the transport from the motherland to America was gruesome, living (if you'd call it that) next to man who was either dead or dying (not always the case), or you could have the terrible misfortune of not being on the top row, because if you wasn't urine, feces, vomit, blood and other bodily fluids seeped through the cracks of wooden boards and landed on on your face and body then you'd be washed once or twice a day with cold salt water, while watching the dead being tossed overboard like trash. And the women were r*ped constantly by the crew and beaten for their insubordination
That's only describing, a few aspects of the transport of slaves during trans-atlantic slave trade
And yes it should have been included
Education really isn't what it once was
Thanks to slavery

american slavery? really?
dude, slavery has been a thing of thousands of years, dating back to pre-bible days. Even some african tribes and societies have had/sold slaves. And american slavery was not worst than slavery across the middle east during the time of the egyptians.
slavery wasn't a single event nor was it always considered a "bad" thing. for thousands of years, owning slaves was the norm of society.
I'm sure people are referring to trans-atlantic slave trade, which was a single event and was always considered a bad thing. And because something is the norm doesn't make it right.
