    have been slaves.   My people built the railroads and dug the coal.   Arguably, they were "free".    You would have been hard pressed to see a difference, though.

    Slavery, or oppression, should never define any race or group of people.  It is their noble struggle to obtain freedom and to remain free which should define them.  

    Having credibility when making an argument is the straightest path to persuasion.

      I think I could see differences, although I'm sure that "bad enough in itself" might also come to mind.
