The Re-Enslavement of Black People in America from the Civil War to World War II

One of the most shameful chapters in American history — when a cynical new form of slavery was resurrected from the ashes of the Civil War and re-imposed on hundreds of thousands of African-Americans until the dawn of World War II.

Under laws enacted specifically to intimidate blacks, tens of thousands of African Americans were arbitrarily arrested, hit with outrageous fines, and charged for the costs of their own arrests. With no means to pay these ostensible “debts,” prisoners were sold as forced laborers to coal mines, lumber camps, brickyards, railroads, quarries and farm plantations. Thousands of other African Americans were simply seized by southern landowners and compelled into years of involuntary servitude. Government officials leased falsely imprisoned blacks to small-town entrepreneurs, provincial farmers, and dozens of corporations—including U.S. Steel Corp.—looking for cheap and abundant labor. Armies of "free" black men labored without compensation, were repeatedly bought and sold, and were forced through beatings and physical torture to do the bidding of white masters for decades after the official abolition of American slavery.

The neoslavery system exploited legal loopholes and federal policies which discouraged prosecution of whites for continuing to hold black workers against their wills. As it poured millions of dollars into southern government treasuries, the new slavery also became a key instrument in the terrorization of African Americans seeking full participation in the U.S. political system.

Based on a vast record of original documents and personal narratives, SLAVERY BY ANOTHER NAME unearths the lost stories of slaves and their descendants who journeyed into freedom after the Emancipation Proclamation and then back into the shadow of involuntary servitude. It also reveals the stories of those who fought unsuccessfully against the re-emergence of human labor trafficking, the modern companies that profited most from neoslavery, and the system’s final demise in the 1940s, partly due to fears of enemy propaganda about American racial abuse at the beginning of World War II.

SLAVERY BY ANOTHER NAME is a moving, sobering account of a little-known crime against African Americans, and the insidious legacy of racism that reverberates today.

Examine the rantings of this old white neo-nazi supremacist:

Did you hear how Chinese snakeheads are smuggling Chinese into every nook and cranny in the world?


We can learn a lot about the mindset of these KKK nutcases.

I post an article about the continuation of slavery.
Now, brothers and sisters, most people would show some sympathy for the sufferings of our fellow man.
But not our putrid, hate filled white supremacist, seneca.
Instead, his vile hatred of China can be shown by this one post of his.

This is what white supremacy is all about brothers and sisters.
Learn from him so that we can protect each other from them.
You will reap what you sow!

I have noticed that your posts defending the Motherland from this white racist Klansman usually get deleted.

Thank you brother for highlighting such despicable behaviour by the white racists against our black brothers.

seneca,

Isn't it time you go home to your Utopia ? Why are you still lingering in China ? Are you unemployable back home ? You pretend to teach English ?  There is no charlatan or snake oil merchant  lower than those who would fool the innocents with fake knowledge . We know your standard of English . I have seen standard one pupils doing better than you .  It is about time you go home to mamma. She still loves you  ( no one else does ).

You hit his weakest point, my friend.

He, of course a loser out there, that's why he's here, refusing to endure the cruelty he face in his home country ever since he was born.

Only Chinese is naive/ tolerant enough to allow him living here, but as we see, he doesn't know the real meaning of gratitude, a higher level of humanity needed to have this kind of feeling.

I have always found the subject of racism to be sick. I cannot undertstand why seneca cannot just condemn such inhumanity to his fellow man. Do you condone such behaviour, seneca? Your response reminds me of the behaviour of some racist white Americans when they read about this. They made light of it and even seem to approve of what blacks had suffered at the hands of whites.

To be noted is the fact that it was a white man that wrote the book on this hidden subject. Of course he was attacked for bringing this subject up.

who are the mods?

"I have noticed that your posts defending the Motherland from this white racist Klansman usually get deleted".

But he seems to be free to spread his bigotry (see also his descriptions of Palestinians, Muslims and Chinese).

Wonder why?

Anyway, his propaganda seems to be backfiring, so he's really doing his opponents a service by continuing in this mode.
