The slaves were given free housing, free food, free healthcare in exchange for their labor. They were denied the rights that were guaranteed to free whites, including the right to own a gun. By classifying them as "persons", (legal fictions), giving them representation at only 3/5th's of the rate of whites and literally calling them an "inferior race", we subjugated them to a "less than human" status. See the Dred Scott decision for clarity on this. It all boiled down to whether Dred was a living, human with rights or was PROPERTY, owned by another human, (this is called slavery).
Every one has been taught that as a result of the Civil War, all blacks were emancipated. As a result of the 14th Amendment, the ownership of the slaves was transferred from the wealthy southern plantation owners to the rich white bankers who had seized control of the Federal government. Instead elevating the black man out of slavery, all humans were demoted to the status of slaves on the Federal Banking plantation.
Instead of stealing 100% of the labor of slaves, today the government steals 50% of the labor of virtually everyone.
Many of the slaves of the 21st century are still receiving their free housing, free food and free healthcare from the government that had previously been supplied by the owners of the plantations. There is absolutely no difference.
Prior to the President who allegedly freed the slaves, some of us had rights, but after the 14th Amendment, we became "subject to the jurisdiction" of the UNITED STATES and our rights were converted into privileges granted to us by the government.
The difference is, the slaves on southern plantations knew who they were, while the slaves of today only believe they are free.
"There are none so hopelessly enslaved as those who falsely believe they are free." - Goethe
