field negro: The real 'takers' in America.

Today is Labor Day in America, so I feel a need to talk about hard work and the affect it has had on us all.

Slavery has been around since 1619, and it officially lasted until 1865, which is eight months or so after the Civil War ended.

The thing is, even after slavery officially ended, there was still "Negro involuntary servitude" which persisted until 1940.
