I think Every Man A Slave by Sender Zeyv should be required reading because it compares and contrast these things very well. https://www.israelbookshoppublications.com/store/pc/Every-Man-a-Slave-p780.htm
And don't forget the sequel, Gone West, which was serialized in the Mishpacha Magazine a few years ago.

Now we're really off-topic, but I think that one doesn't hold a candle to the original.

On the subject of Sender Zeyv, Aleph Shin is a good but weird read (and slightly creepy, given 9/11 shortly after the book came out). Of course the sequel (Ten Lost) is just off the deep end but still a somewhat enjoyable read.

Honestly, I didn't read those two books, I was just pointing out that there was a sequel...

Aleph Shin is a great book IMO. I view the sequel as the commentary on the first book, and something that should only be read by superfans who want to delve into every detail of the book. Otherwise, just skip it.

Swastika existed before the Nazis took it over.
Confederate flag came into existence specifically for slavery, so if anything it's worse according to that logic.
do you have a cleaning lady?

give it some time and you'll be compared to Hitler YM"SH

slavery was a way of life, no one did it to be bad to others, that was not the intent rather normalcy, VS hitler YM"SH was there to wipe you out

I agree for some it is how you describe, but you really need to learn more history if you think that many (most) treated blacks as pure property and not people. And were viciously violent towards said "property"
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Simply untrue. Abuse was rampant and punishments were draconian.
I don't understand the comparison to hired help at all. Are they being abused or forced to stay?

Was raping women and lynching that part of life.
I really feel bad for individuals that know nothing about our history. They come across as a racist when they just don't know/understand.
