Well if they knew how to read they had there fingers cut off. If they didn't pick the right amount of cotton they couldn't eat until they did. they whip to show them who was the master if they ever didn't obey. The woman where also rapped to breed like dogs. Some where split from there family any never go to see there mother or sister etc.
Millions of answers for this question!! Slavery wasn't a pleasant thing for anyone and especially the slaves. I remember from when we were talking about slavery in social studies and some pregnant slaves would still have to work and wouldn't go to the local hospital to give birth to their baby.
I am very surprised that this question has not been removed. I think that if you are of African decent that you may a stories that have been passed on from generation to generation, but we can 't begin to think about the life of a slave!!!!
God made every one equal and to in slave some one is a SIN to think we are better then any one else who do we think we are? Any one who in slaves a nother person Must answer to God some day. I read the book Man Dingo and it made me cry the way the whites treated the Negroes is a crying shame. We treated our dogs a lot better we all should be a shamed to be called a white person. The in slaved people had NO rights we sold ,whipped, raped, beat,and even killed slaves. The Negroes,Chinese,First Nation and many more were slaves and sad to say some still are in many countries around the world I was a slave in my own home for many years I had to cook,clean,make beds make breakfasts lunches,iron sweep and wash floors change dirty diapers,bath feed, make dinners and look after my younger bothers and sister or I was beaten with a belt and was put into a dark basement full of water three stairs from the top for days with out food I was so scared I was going for drown I was only nine years old at the time. I love all people and would never wish to hurt No one I never go to see my evil stepmother to this day.I myself am part white and First Nation.
Saddest thing is another human person believes they are so much better than someone.They buy and sell another human like they are a product.Then all the other bad things that happen to the slave just follows.
