Y'all don't know much about DeKalb County, do you? It changed a LONG time ago; it's one of the country's biggest and richest buppie enclaves (blacks are the largest ethnic group at 53 percent, with a HUGE increase between 2000 and 2010 when they built all those bougie subdivisions in South DeKalb). This is just some tech wienie being a smartass.

Well, slavery still exists, here and elsewhere. It's unlikely that an illegal slave would be on any public registry for jury duty, or whatever. Just because it's illegal, doesn't make it an invalid data value.

I'm guessing this is one of those situations where a bored IT person put it in to see if anyone would catch it, and intended to remove it before it went live, but didn't have the chance.

Let's think about this for a second:

Slavery ended in 1865.
The list of occupations has been in use since 2000.
The drop-down menu had to be coded by someone.
And they're claiming that it's an accident, because it came straight off the list.

I call bullshiat.

Seriously, Georgia? Do you want me to go back down there and straighten this out?

It seems like a valid choice to me.  I'm sure it means (wage) slave.
