Why don’t schools ever talk about the white slaves like the Irish?

Question by Tai: Why don’t schools ever talk about the white slaves like the Irish?
I’m not talking about “inedtured servents” but real slaves, in it’s very definition.

The African slave trade was just beginning during about the same timeframe.
African slaves were very expensive during the late 1600s (50 Sterling). Irish slaves came cheap (no more than 5 Sterling). If a planter whipped or branded or beat an Irish slave to death, it was never a crime. A death was a monetary setback, but far cheaper than killing a more expensive African.

During the 1650s, over 100,000 Irish children between the ages of 10 and 14 were taken from their parents and sold as slaves in the West Indies, Virginia and New England. In this decade, 52,000 Irish (mostly women and children) were sold to Barbados and Virginia. Another 30,000 Irish men and women were also transported and sold to the highest bidder. In 1656, Cromwell ordered that 2000 Irish children be taken to Jamaica and sold as slaves to English settlers.

From 1641 to 1652, over 500,000 Irish were killed by the English and another 300,000 were sold as slaves. Ireland’s population fell from about 1,500,000 to 600,000 in one single decade. Families were ripped apart as the British did not allow Irish dads to take their wives and children with them across the Atlantic. This led to a helpless population of homeless women and children. Britain’s solution was to auction them off as well.

There were horrible abuses of both African and Irish captives. One British ship even dumped 1,302 slaves into the Atlantic Ocean so that the crew would have plenty of food to eat.

sorry i had a little copy/pasta

but anyway, even if you ever go to the West Indies the brown light-skinned people you see are most likely combination of Irish and African, and even Chinese cuz I heard about chinese slaves too(which they never taught in my school). and people like to say “Oh that’s white rape blood if you’re light skinned” ummn no, who’s to say that it wasn’t some Irish slave back in the 1600s or 1700s that got it on with an African slave? Chinese, African, and white slaves all have brought up what some people look like today.

I seriously have never been taught about white slaves(and i live in SC) OR chinese slaves until I read about it outside of school. thats messed upp…
my ancestry has Irish and I never knew this.. i mean i’m part chinese/okinawan too but thats cuz my grandma is from hawaii and they were actual labour workers under contracts…
i can’t belive it.. all this time i’ve been told only about african slaves..
LOL vivi

The Man’s Guide To The Perfect Date: Fun, Romantic And Creative Date Planning Ideas To Make Your Date The Best Ever

The Man’s Guide To The Perfect Date: Fun, Romantic And Creative Date Planning Ideas To Make Your Date The Best Ever

Have you ever been able to blow her mind on the first date, to a point where she’s reeling from the enjoyment and ecstasy of the night you just gave her?

Have you ever gone home, after a date, knowing for a fact that she will be thinking, wanting, and even dreaming about seeing you again?

If you answered “No” to the above questions, you are not alone. In fact, most guys have had the exact opposite of the above experiences during (and after) a first date…

There’s nothing worse than going home after a date, wondering if the girl will ever want to see you again… or if she will even answer the phone when you call her the next day… or wondering if this will be like most first dates where all your effort and hard work would once again go to waste – with nothing to show for it… not even a goodnight kiss…

Let’s face it… if she doesn’t at least have an above average date with you, you would be lucky to even get a second date with her.

And, if she has a bad date with you, you can pretty much guarantee that you will never see her again. She may not even answer your phone calls, text messages, or emails.

The truth is, most guys can be so ‘average’ and boring during the first date, that the girl just wants to go home and be alone for the rest of the night… OR… she is tempted to call some other guy, who can give her the thrill and passion that she wants… (while you end up going home alone.)

The worst part is, she will never tell you WHY it didn’t work out, or what you did wrong to mess the date up – even if you asked her point blank.

And, you would just have to continue ‘guessing’ as to what went wrong… and hope that you’ll get it right when you start all over again, with somebody new…by going on yet another “first date”…

So, just what the heck is it that you’re supposed to do on a first date that will get her to enjoy, and even cherish the memories – after the night is over… to a point where she won’t be able to wait to see you again, and spend more time with you?

Would you like to find that out – once and for all – so that you can stop guessing at what works and what doesn’t… and stop making those same “expensive” mistakes over and over again that continue to kill your chances with any girl you’re attracted to?

Because, you’re about to finally get the exact recipe to creating fun, excitement, romance, passion, connection… all the ingredients to pack into that first date, to make it a special and memorable one for her.

Now, you can learn exactly how it’s done … step-by-step… so that you can give any woman a magical night that she won’t soon forget…if ever!
