    If black lives mattered back then slavery wouldn't have existed.

    That's why there were adopted my white people, to be loved by a family, so they supported their family for the cost of nothing.

    It depends on which era of slavery and whether they were the slaves at the time, During US slavery they did have a dollar value when they were alive.

    The probably mattered more then! At least to those who owned them.

    Ask yourself this same question about your own life in relationship to your employer, if you have one.

    Actually they did!  A slave was a valuable property.  They were expensive to buy.

    This was one of the reasons for the Civil War.  A plantation owner might have dozens of slaves, including men, women and children.  They represented a big investment!  If they were freed he stood to lose a lot!
