But what about the white slaves during slavery in America?

what about them?

this poor attempt at false equivalency (or alternately, the “what about white people” paradigm) is specifically one of the problems with american society…or should i say white americans.

to put it bluntly, there was not a SOCIETY WIDE slave system for white folks…yes, there were serfs, but most either dug themselves out (with assistance) OR bought into the dominant paradigm (while STILL being poor) — i.e., that blacks were inferior and therefore, it was OK for american society to treat them as such…
