There were no slaves in America.  Those were just room and board workers who were thrilled to be taken care of by their "bosses".  That's just propaganda.

They're cheating by limiting to the mainland. There was a slave revolt in Hispaniola centuries earlier.

How is this related to Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics?

"You've lit a bunch of innocent children on fire?"

Is there any actual evidence of that, or is that an excuse to wipe them out?

Slave uprisings count as "science" now?

History is part of the human sciences.

No, it's part of the Humanities. Which are important, but they're not science or any other part of STEM.

This is just a story. I murdered everyone on both sides and drank their blood to sustain my Immortality.

SCIENCE!

aungen: "You've lit a bunch of innocent children on fire?"

Considering they basically said "Fark you, I got mine" to other slaves, I'm not sure how much benefit of the doubt they should be extended.

Not really, it's not.  Not within the commonly accepted definition of STEM. History doesn't fall under STEM.

Neither do the "soft sciences", which are misnamed anyway, what with them being rife with politics and of course the "replication crisis".

So nobody wants to know how I traveled through time to accomplish this?!

/yeah, this is not science. I tried to give some benefit of doubt, if some newbie admin was lost and confused, or on drugs.

So where should the story go? Maybe politics, but not necessarily. Fandom? That's disturbing. Business? That's also disturbing. It's STEM or Main and I'm ok with a little history in STEM.

The people biatching about it don't want to hear the story at all.
Hearing about the source of their privilege makes them feel uncomfortable.

These slaves almost deserve as much  sympathy as the slave rebellions of Sparta.  But that's inconvenient and nobody wants to talk about it.

300 was a great movie!
They stopped the Persians!
Blah
Blah!
Whatever.

They buried children alive, f@#k them. Don't care why. Same shiat, different millennium.
 
2021-01-26 9:44:35 PM  
Burned. Whatever.
 
2021-01-26 9:52:18 PM  
And no, this isn't stem. It won't get you a reactor and won't get you into space, nor will it give you a tech edge.  It's planted here to shiat on stem.

So fark off. I'd kill those people myself if I caught them burning kids alive. You should, too.

/super pro life
//no I'm not serious, but neither was the person who green lit this for stem.
///Ann of green gables is the best movie ever
 
2021-01-26 9:59:02 PM  
You know they almost certainly made up the part about burning the kids, right?

I agree it belongs on main. Stem is a dead end except for ridiculous commentary.

Oh, I'm sorry for you that some of us believe standards should be followed.  You'll get over it.

And I actually found the article interesting and worthwhile, it just doesn't belong in the STEM tab.  News would have been the better fit.

This is like putting a breakthrough in astronomy in the politics tab.  It just doesn't fit.  And no amount of unintelligent-posterior posts casting unwarranted aspersions at those pointing it out  is going to change that.
