oh my god… I’m getting Skyrim withdrawl… I haven’t played or even thought about video games in months but suddenly I have the most wicked urge to play skyrim…
am i the only one that goes the extra mile to say that a person was “enslaved person” rather than “a slave” no matter how awkward this makes the sentence structure???? i just need that reminder and affirmation that these people, my ancestors among them, were people under the inhumane condition of slavery and that this condition was not at all inherent to them. is that weird???
It’s not weird, it’s accurate. I do the same and it kinda makes my stomach turn when folks within the realm of these studies, especially afrodescendants, continue to call their ancestors slaves. They were ENslaved. The indigenous were enslaved as well but they are not called slaves, only Africans are. Why is that?
