Got it? SLAVERY is like SLAVERY. It means someone OWNS YOU. It means
if you are a female slave, your owner can take away your children and
sell them, forbid to speak your native tongue, or even rename you to
indicate whose property you are, among other horrors.
THAT is what Slavery is. Do not compare it to going without health
insurance. Do not compare it with not being able to get married. Do not
compare American Slavery with anything other than real people who are
currently enslaved. Black people find it offensive to our ancestors.
Obama and Biden will call on citizens of all ages to serve. They'll
set a goal that all middle school and high school students engage in 50
hours of community service a year, and develop a plan for all college
students who engage in 100 hours of community service to receive a
fully-refundable tax credit of $4,000 for their education. Obama and
Biden will encourage retiring Americans to serve by improving programs
available for individuals over age 55, while at the same time promoting
youth programs such as Youth Build and Head Start.
Do people read this stuff or think about it before they start spazzing?
"Setting a goal" doesn't sound like a requirement. And no "slave"
would get anything resembling $4,000 (to go towards education, at that)
for 100 hours of work.
