    Thank you for the link to that piece.

    “none but the black race can bear exposure to the tropical sun.” there is some truth to this: thousands upon thousands of pale-skinned slaves couldn’t take it…imagine the painful, infected sunburns they must have endured before their early deaths.

    Yes thanks, this is a great link. It is mind-blowing and important to read those words in print.

    I never understood the twisted logic; because someone is supposedly not my equal they should be my slave? How does that “naturally” follow?
