When Slow Joe Biden made his now infamous gaffe about 'y'all back in chains' he might have forgotten a little history.
I wonder how many black Americans with no jobs, no incomes, no homes, no food and no hope might reflect that their forbears were immensely better off. They had jobs, for a start. They had homes, they had food. While they didn't have 'freedom' as we know it, it's fair to say most American slave owners treated their people reasonably.
Bein' back on de plantation in good old Virginny might be a damned sight better than some drug ridden hell hole in back street Chicago.
