Odd how "slaves" were bought and sold years ago because the slaves were too uninformed to avoid their own people capturing them and selling them off to other countries. I know we hear so little about that portion of the slave mentality these days, because that points to the very people that are still making statements of those slavery days and don't want their very own looked at for such things. And those slaves were treated to every form of inhuman circumstances one could envision. But now we seriously have that exact same mentality via democratic "programs" to maintain their "slaves" in impoverished communities these day! And those same people are once again uninformed to their being total manipulated as well. Oh yes it is still control and enslaved regardless how you look at it. Folks like Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton both are endeared to the democratic party and therefore allowed to confiscate moneys from those slaves these days without government intervention...even today! So if folks think the democrats are their saviors, they are just blinded to their pathetic government handout monthly checks to keep them in control and in place... Oh yes, it IS still slavery regardless how you look at it..
