It's all relative. The large tracts of land could not be productive without low wage unskilled labor. It not like it was personal. Just like with any economic system, there was abuse by a few mean spirits. And that got the publicity thanks to the NYC do-gooders. Of course they did not mention the child labor and slave wage pay in their woolen milks, etc. Had they been so true blue they should have boycotted the Southern cotton they wove and wore. The vast majority of Southerners owned no slaves. But it was the culture and I might add probably the only true culture ever on this continent....outside of the Native American.

        Don't want to overwhelm the New England Yankees with overload. Siagiah would have made for a real good hoop skirted Southetn belle, mistress of the big house and social queen of Baton Rouge.
