    Never Taught In Our Pubic Schools. A Time When More Slaves In The Americas Were White

    As I have mentioned; the documented fact, there was a time in the Americas when most slaves were white; but a fact that our public schools avoid teaching. Any comments? I'm guessing if it were taught, it may somehow level the field; and we know that's something our liberals avoid like the plague. Just my opinion. Please, not the indentured servant reply. That got very old a long long time ago. They were slaves.

    It was OK because they were white, silly.

    I'm inclined to be a bit ( OK, alot ) outspoken; and it has actually gotten me banned from other forums. Must be the truth thing that upsets people.

    Anything goes here, this board doesn't have the sense to toss the real trolls. It does, however, have an excellent ignore feature.

    Nothing outspoken about your first thread, however. You do know I was being facetious? You're absolutely right that indentured service was a form of slavery.

    Maybe we white folks should be asking for reparations too.

    I know I had Irish ancestors who were slaves. Does that mean I can cry the blues and get reparations from England? From what I have been exposed to ( seen taught in our public schools ) concerning slavery, it appears the only slaves in the entire history of the planet, were blacks on white owned southern American plantations.

    Yes, in the early days many Whites were indentured servants. Their passage to America (the colonies) was paid by someone here and they paid it off working for them for a period of time. I was taught that in the mid 1960s in elementary school. White slavery wasn't mentioned that I can recall. Perhaps the organized teaching movement was covering it up already?

    Ah yes, Indentured Servants : Whenever they rebelled or even disobeyed an order, they were punished in the harshest ways. Slave owners would hang their human property by their hands and set their hands or feet on fire as one form of punishment. They were burned alive and had their heads placed on pikes in the marketplace as a warning to other captives.

    Wait, spare you equating indentured servants with slaves (you could make that argument) or are you talking about actual white slaves being the majority of slaves?

    Many people today will avoid calling the Irish slaves what they truly were: Slaves. They’ll come up with terms like “Indentured Servants” to describe what occurred to the Irish. However, in most cases from the 17th and 18th centuries, Irish slaves were nothing more than human cattle.

    As an example, the African slave trade was just beginning during this same period. It is well recorded that African slaves, not tainted with the stain of the hated Catholic theology and more expensive to purchase, were often treated far better than their Irish counterparts.

    African slaves were very expensive during the late 1600s (50 Sterling). Irish slaves came cheap (no more than 5 Sterling). If a planter whipped or branded or beat an Irish slave to death, it was never a crime. A death was a monetary setback, but far cheaper than killing a more expensive African.

    There are records of Irish sold as slaves in 1664 to the French on St. Bartholomew, and English ships which made a stop in Ireland enroute to the Americas, typically had a cargo of Irish to sell on into the 18th century.
    Few people today realize that from 1600 to 1699, far more Irish were sold as slaves than Africans.
