Yes I would walk.

I'd probably destroy the presentation itself.

Come at me bro.

Does anyone have any context behind this? Like, could this have been a REALLY misguided assignment for a debate class?

Yeah, that's exactly what it was. Search the thread for user Czaarcasm

This is a "blame the teacher" moment. There are countless other controversial topics you can assign to illustrate debate.

I can't believe there wasn't ONE Smashmouth reference here. I live with my mom would not filterpwn again

Yeah, but those Pros are compelling.  As long as you're the slave and not me.

No. Slaves have no freedom. That's kinda the whole point of slavery.

Yeah.  Looks like a "spot the fallacious argument" exercise.  Either a debate or logic class.
 
2021-09-27 9:15:56 PM  
Unless there's leather outfits and spankings, maybe some nipple clamps, slavery is always bad.

Teacher's right. Other slaves were treated with whips, branding irons, knives, and a whole lot of rapin'.

Don't worry. SCOTUS will overturn Roe V. Wade before they come up with some bullshiat reason that the 24th Amendment overturns the 13th.

So, you've got until next spring.

When we decided that paying teachers wasn't a priority.  It's leading to generations of even more stupidity, it's depressing.

all of those would be reasons to put "you might not be neglected" in the Cons category.

"Slavery can be viewed as a way to pay off debt"

That's indentured servitude you farktwats! Completely separate thing, because after you worked off your debt, you could LEAVE!!

Got to give credit to you, nice research and links.  This is an outrage troll post(not Lsherm) the subby. See like an unfortunate debate club type position. Still not a good idea, nice catch Lsherm
 
2021-09-27 9:21:41 PM  
That is the most white, slave owning-centric sign in the world.

"Slaves had little to no freedom"

"Sometimes they were treated harshly"

Even the pros aren't pros of you are the slave.

That should read: things white people say cause they can't admit slavery was a "thing"

Well it just didn't seem right to take it at face value. If it was an old picture from the 1950's? Sure. But this is recent, and I can't imagine any teenager today intentionally giving a presentation on the "good parts" of slavery without it being part of an assignment. There had to be some sort of explanation.

And the research wasn't difficult, the link to the reddit thread is like 30 replies down in that Twitter thread.

Every ten years or so we should have a big national vote on legalizing slavery.

Everybody that votes for slavery gets to be a slave. 

They get what they want... we get some more free prison labor.... everybody wins!
 
2021-09-27 9:25:13 PM  
Its important to teach people WHY they believe what they believe.

I'm guessing that is the purpose of the exercise.
