ladder.

Once the ban on slavery levelled the playing field a little, that's when the lynching started. They had to feel superior somehow...

36. There are many employed at minimum wage

that must "like it" to keep it! They are neither supporters of the GOP, fuckdribbles, nor necessarily broken asses that got a lickin' in the woodshed of life.

I protest the name-calling as it pertains to the general population. If it was stated to only pertain to MAGATs, so be it! They seriously do need some re-programming of the brain cells no matter their self-impression of their IQ or wealth.

... did more than pic cotton they were also the carpenters, black smiths, ship builders etc.

The people who fought for the south fought to make sure rich people kept their property, I don't see how that was a good thing for them

9. Who would use paid labor when there's slavery?

They wouldn't be getting anything at all. They would be subsistence farmers living in the mountains.

13. Overseers and such, but you're right. Many would've been broke ass...

subsistence farmers being told they were superior to the enslaved people and thus divided and conquered to the advantage of the slavers, as early on during enslavement there were white indentured servants and they started intermixing with the enslaved, even marrying.

Slavers soon put a stop to that in fear of uprising by preaching white superiority and separating them as together they vastly outnumber slaver families.

17. Subsistence farmers would be wiped out by any number of environmental disasters

Flood, droughts, earthquakes, hurricanes, etc. Also, given the immense wealth that the slavers would accumulate, they would push these poor subsistence farmers off of the more fertile soil.

They would be starving with no means to provide for themselves. They would wage war against the slave owners and slaves alike. IOW, a Civil war or some other form of armed conflict was inevitable had slavery been allowed to continue.

27. It most certainly was about labor for cotton - that went to Northern factories largely ...

but a very big part of it purely had to with the money in the market of buying and selling humans on the slave market. There were fortunes made purely on speculation in humans.

28. Owning another human being is an investment that needs to be kept up: food, clothing, shelter...

And if you think your “investment” reproduces for nothing, wrong again. An infant does not begin earning its way for quite a few years.

I don’t think poor whites were in the market for slaves — but thanks to intentional social programming then and now, African Americans were a population poor whites could look down on.

What a shameful and cruel system or national “birth defect” was and is.

33. I think that's now called living off-grid on a homestead, and this trendy living isn't really as

inexpensive as it sounds! All that "hard work's" has been partially replaced by conveniences, technology, and "freedom," but is still a far cry from Little House on the Prairie or the land registration races of Far and Away, and their doctors, then, accepted payment in chickens and their families and preachers, a stipend and perhaps room and board.

Now that we live from sea to shining sea, "The land, Katie Scarlett, is the only thing that matters" (GWTW) still, but there's so many right now that work hard enough but cannot own affordable housing with a small yard in the cities or 'burbs; indeed many forego the small yard to live where the business and entertainment venues "happens," while the 1% earn more just by breathing and have multiple investment in real estate, commercial and residential, and everything else.

Just like healthcare for themselves and their families linked to employment, ways to meet costs that exceed what Medicare pays and/or covers are neither easily accessible or far more costly than what many seniors, innocent of laziness, and/or discriminated against in the so-called protected classes of workers can even access and pay. Nor can these folks access and pay for lawyers to represent the injustices under which they've fallen.

It's hard to think that every one of the "discriminations" really starts with white supremacy under a Judeo-Christian legacy, but there it is! And such a sensitive embedded problem it is from Day 1 of the forefathers' signing The Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union, and the Constitution of the United States of America, Bill of Rights, and Amendments adopted thereof.

61. ...and the men who owned slaves would have called them trash to their faces

That's one thing about the south I found particularly galling, the absolute lack of recognition of what trying to compete with slave labor had meant to their own forebears.

I'm not trying to minimize the experience of people who were kidnapped and sold into slavery. US slavery was absolutely the worst example of it, ever, although serfdom came close.

I'm just withing these chowderheads would have gotten a better education in the fact that their ow family's pre confederate condition was far from glorious. It was brutal. They weren't worth keeping alive as property.

...... I thought I had once and for all seen my last rebel flag as I drove north to my home state of MA.

Then along came a racist president unlike any I have seen in my lifetime. WOW, what a sad state of affairs.

In other words, liars and frauds, just plain old racists.

38. Best of all: 98% of Antebellum-era White folks owned NO slaves

Save for a small professional/merchant middle class most pre-1865 Southern White families were, in fact, worse off than the slaves themselves.

Slaves were, after all, property - and had to be cared for accordingly.

Poor "white trash" were nothing, to no one.

-

During slavery, cotton was cheap and most of the textile mills were up North, but then they started building them in the South, and guess what happened?

There were many true abolitionist back then, but the Civil War was not totally about freeing the slaves.
