It is also a good study of how slavery dominated the US economy in the first half of the 19th century. The use of “correct” terms is endemic in the history of slavery and can be seen between Philips’ use of Slave Crime rather than Stampp’s use Slave Resistance for the same things.

Slavery certainly is a stain on our history, but we can't change the past. I do wish some of these politically correct types when writing about slavery would also mention modern sex slavery that exist now worldwide including our country, and attack it as much as they do the slavery in our past history. What is currently going on now is much worse, it's to bad so many of our country and world leaders want to keep their heads buried in the sand and do so little about it.

It is the typical whine and complain about the past, but do next to nothing to solve the problem as it currently exist. Angry
Learning all this information is useless if we don't learn from it and use it to make necessary changes in our world.

So when is this "Old Enough To Know Better" supposed to kick in?
