Today, the new slave plantation does similar things as those of the past. The slave plantation provided housing, food, and miseducation for the slave. Sounds familiar? If you’re paying any attention to what’s going on around you, then you see where I’m going. The new slave plantation is the reflection of the old one.
The old plantation was run by slave-driving Democrat white men who wanted the United States of America to be a slave nation. These same white men seceded from the Union as soon as one thing was done: a Republican president named Abraham Lincoln was elected. These white men (Southern Democrats) felt threatened by another white man (Republican president) not because of his skin color, but because they knew that a shift of power would soon become a reality during his presidency.
They feared the political repercussions of their love of money and the power it yielded.
The Southern states proved their fear by abruptly leaving the Union to start their own form of government through the Confederacy. All of these white men were Democrats and wanted nothing to do with a Republican president who would not run business as usual but ruin business as usual. This “business model” had afforded them a vast operation with all the perks of owning their own “company.” Unbeknownst to them, there was also a black man who was advising the 16th president at the time. He was born a slave. He never knew his father and was purposely separated from his mother at age seven in a widely used tactic to force dependency on the slave master.
