33 Fun Facts about Slavery!

America had just as many white slaves as black slaves — two-thirds of whites who came to the original 13 Colonies came in bondage as indentured servants, and a large number didn’t survive their seven-year term.

“We’ll never see a movie about that,” [Jim] Goad adds.

Consider this post a free “immunization” against White-guilt.

  • Free at last!

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      Maybe not “free” but heavily subsidized by the government.
      Oh, you meant that other “FREE”.
      Sorry!

    Great granddad was a veteran of the first world war.
    We think he got here as an indentured servant after the Potato Famine.
    There must have been a reason he called himself Black Irish.

    • jack burns

      Maybe, but a lot of Spanish and French influence in southern Ireland. Black hair is common.

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        I’m already a quarter French.
        But, being part Spanish would freak me out.

        • I dunno. I think French is much worse than Spanish. I mean, I’m not judging you or anything. I’m just saying.

            It’s fun that we can beat the shit out of each other in ways that the human resources people can’t touch.

            I judge a country by the state of their colonies left behind.
            French colonies vs. Spanish colonies?
            Death by earthquake vs death by tsunami?

      Just recently learned about the slavery of the Scots-Irish when i was doing some research on hillbilly music.

    • ismiselemeas

      It refers to a particular religious denomination. More kind of Anglo Irish so the likelihood of being affected by the Famine would have been quite slim.

  • jack burns

    Well they must have had white slave privilege so it was probably pretty bitchin.

  • Brett_McS

    Jim Goad is a scary dude! I mean that in a good way.

  • Shebel

    My Family – never owned any slaves —they were just used as slaves—

    Nobody could afford to keep a lazy nigger.

    Male African slaves in North and South America weren’t all castrated or worse as a matter of course. Unlike those who found themselves on the long trek to the slave markets of “dar al salam”.

  • tom_billesley

    Edmonton-born Dianne Foster played an indentured servant in the movie “The Kentuckian” (1955) opposite Burt Lancaster.

  • Raymond Hietapakka

    Ya…like the crackers in Finland had lots to do with slavery…

  • Raymond Hietapakka

    They banned slavery but they’re not yet free…still trapped, enslaved and victimized by their own bullshit. Someone forget to tell them?

  • ontario john

    I find it interesting that blacks have teamed up with indians to protest in Toronto, when indians were big time slave owners before Europeans arrived. Course indians were a little different in that they tended to eat their slaves in some parts of North America.

  • ismiselemeas

    The term indentured servitude does a disservice to what actually happened. The Irish were enslaved under the most brutal of conditions. They were raped and bred in captivity, tortured and summarily executed as examples to their kin folk, women and girls were openly traded in slave markets for reproductive purposes with male black slaves to produce mullato offspring. It was slavery.
