Why do you want such a system that treats a fellow man like a commodity? Worse yet, some were tortured by their handlers or owners and even raped. Why do you think this shit should come back?
A black mother grieves as much as white one when she loses her son or daughter Kamil. We are all human.
I never said I want it to come back...I said that "if" it did I would own one.

I guess now would be a good time for my departure and continue on my SOLON paper.

If? Slavery extends to so much more than mere ethnic ownership.

Would you accept that you become a slave?

Why should I be a slave? Since I am college educated my purpose to society can be better spent than being someone's servant.

If not ethnic, will it be acceptable along classes? Mental condition?

In this instance, 40 minutes ago would have been just about right.

Your being too general, it must be taken on a one on one basis.

Suppose guage was your slave given the obvious lack of education that he suffers from, would you take him? Remember he is a tenacious stalker and will constantly challenge you in the hope that he will feel smart for a minute. I think that would be hell to have him around even if he cleans your toilet seat with his tongue. So it can't be education or even IQ.
Some real slaves were actually smarter than their "owners" by the way.

If a slave questioned his/her master then the master beat the shit out of him/her. Being a human they quickly learn to obey I guess. So yeah, guage would quickly learn or have a very rough life.
