Because there slaves! Would you like to be a slave?The slaves weren't allowed to escape and if they didn't make it and the owner caught them they would be whipped,take Harriet Tubman she tried to escape and she got a brick thrown at her head (she did escape though)and other cruel things.Some where put in chains when they worked.They didn't really have a childhood it ended at age 6 or 7 to begin working,they were placed in one room homes with no floor,they had pretty much no money,also where they were sold they were fenced in and sold like animals,wouldn't you rebel?
Because who wants to work for someone, have no rights and no say, getting whipped and abused when even suspected of wrongdoing, no one listens to a word you have to say, and you have a family to think about?
To some slave owners, the slaves are nothing but some working machines, and they were treated poorly and punished in harsh ways and beaten for little mistakes. They were not even treated as human beings. They were trying to find a better life and most of them hated their master or mistress.
