    • Well said. Its a sad and uncomfortable part of our history that should not be put in softer terms, need to call it what it was slavery. They also need to learn that African people were not the only people enslaved. Histroy can be ugly and beautiful, still needs to be learned openly, truthfully and honestly, worts and all.

  1. Good calling it anything other than Slavery is wrong. From the Jews in Egypt to the Irish, Scottish and unfairly imprisoned English to the Africans.
