Why do people get so outraged about slavery? The slaves got free food, free shelter, even free clothes. It wasn't so free after all?
He doesnt have any of that. They have to Panhandle to survive.
The slave black man on the other hand had Free food, free shelter and even free clothes.
You could even argue that they had Free healthcare as well.
Since slaves were expensive, the owner of the slaves frequently too the slaves to a doctor when they got sick. And the owner paid the doctor with his own wallet.
