Doesn't really sound like a profitable solution. Lol
it's called rape either way
Rape is defined as "The crime, typically, committed by a man, of forcing another person to have sexual intercourse with the offender against THEIR WILL"-Oxford DictionaryIt's a slave therefore it has no rights of any kind including having the right of their own WILL. If the slave resists I just beat the slave because I control its every part of life. So no it's not rape because it's a fucking slave
it's still rape because it's against their will just because you don't recognize they have the right to say no only makes you a lesser person not their cries to stop touching them or FORCING yourself on them any less audible. Just makes you the kind of person that would rape given the opportunity.
Nope they are just a biological object that speaks when told to speak. It only thinks when given permission to speak. Its "will" is nothing but hope of having independence until the slave is beaten and realized "oh I have no will"
the 1776 version of you would be freeing slaves? it is the right thing to do but I don't think that was what most people were doing
Well the 1776 version of me would be a house slave so... freedom!
XD I guess it would kind of be rape wouldn't it
No kind of. It's "the definition"
yeah but don't you think some slaves actually liked their owners and maybe wanted to get it on or is that impossible
on the money!! excellent point
Stockholm syndrome is a fairly well documented ailment, sure. We all adapt to our situation eventually - especially if we're born into it. The truly sad part is that this could be said of both the slaves and the slave owners. And the reason it's sad is because the very existence of slavery required an environment in the U. S. south in which only those genetically predisposed to racism and sociopathy could stand living here. And now here we are, after 150 years of yielding ground to their descendants and electing their presidents, they are finally poised to topple the U. S..
I don't think slaves got paid back then
