Remember, folks, slavery was only abolished in the obvious way. As long as it’s kept nice and quietly in prisons where the general public doesn’t know and doesn’t care what’s going on and has a new excuse for thinking slavery is deserved (and one that just so happens to correlate with policies that just so happen to lock up black and brown people at vastly disproportionate rates to their share of the population) we can pretend America ever abolished slavery. But t didn’t. It just evolved it. And even our liberal leadership (center-right, as left as some Democrats ever want us to get) have benefited directly from slavery.
