"I am sure they could never become happier
people than I find here...No tribe of people
has ever passed from barbarism to
civilization whose progress has been
more secure from harm, more genial
to their character, or better supplied with
mild and beneficent guardianship, adapted to
the actual state of their intellectual feebleness,
than the Negros of Swallow Barn. And from what
I can gather, it is pretty much the same on the
other estates in this region"
I would like to see either your opinion, or maybe, why you see people justifying slavery as a benefit. I think the only reason people justify it is, in a similar way that Samantha said, is that we don't want to be apart of it and simply turn a blind eye to it. What are your thoughts?
