No, you're not justifying it, but you are rationalizing it. I don't give a damn about the somewhat smarter slave-owners taking a little better care of their product.....at the end of the day none of that sh*t mattered. funny how some idiot wrote a whole book on sh*t that doesn't mean one damn thing.
At the end of the day, the problem was blacks were considered nothing more than a piece of product, regardless of how they were treated, EVERY human being deserves the right to decide for themselves. And that lack of a choice isn't even close to being the worst part about slavery.
I've read some of your posts before and you're a real minority on Bx, a white dude with some sense & decency, but don't get it twisted. You were obviously taught that it was OK, or even better, somehow productive, to try and rationalize a horrific period in this country's history, so I'll just tell you nicely...That sh*t is NOT OK, and quite frankly it serves no purpose whatsoever.
It wasn't my intent to rationalize...If that is how it seems, I apologize. This topic (and many others on this site) brought that book to mind. We weren't "taught" that it was OK...Hell, it was an Economics 400's class. I think some Economics of American History course (been a couple years, so I can't recall the exact name). My professor never justified slavery...He just taught us the economic point of view, which is widely ignored. It was a very significant period of this country's history, so it's logical to look at all aspects of it's economical impact as a means of educating ourselves, not to justify/rationalize.
I do not want to argue that blacks were considered to be lesser than whites because there simply is no argument there. I just wanted to share that piece of literature, as it simply takes a DIFFERENT approach than what is commonly perceived. Nothing more, nothing less.
