There were WHITE SLAVES too

it is a little known fact that a large portion of the SLAVES in the U.S. were NON-BLACK people. Just like most people think that no blacks fought for the Confederacy , that all slave owners were white or that there were No Northern slave states and that slaves were transported on Confederate ships, it is equally incorrect to believe that all slaves were black.
If anyone, black or white, believes that slavery was only an African experience, then they’ve got it completely wrong.English slaves : Irish slaves, Convicts, Prostitutes ,Vagrants, Children [ The word Kidnapper ie Kid-Napper ; comes from the men (called "spirits) who use to steal children in London and Bristol in order to sell them as slaves in the new world] and others ( poor children, prostitutes children like in london, kidnapped Adults)
