    In a way, because of police brutality towards blacks that goes unpunished, and the horrid conditions they endure in prisons.

    NO.  If you really want to see full-blown slavery in action..........go to China.

    To 1465. The US Constitution did not legally cease to exist when the southern states seceded. The Northern states carried on under it. The US did not recognize the CSA as a nation but as US states in rebellion against the Union. No nation formally recognized the CSA. When the CSA ceased, its laws and its constitution was nulled.  When the body is dead, it cannot claim obedience.  The southern states were re-admitted into the United States and therefore those states are under the US Constitution and its amendment against slavery.

    No. But that doesn't mean it's not legal.

    A very little-known but interesting thing happened in 1861 that legally invalidated the Constitution that we currently recognize and function under.

    The Confederate States of America had adopted its own Constitution based on the original Constitution of 1789, with the exception that it supported slavery.

    Because this Constitution was never repealed or invalidated in any way after the war, it is the only document that is still legally in force.

    And because the Confederate Constitution supported slavery, this means that slavery within those states that functioned under the CSA Constitution is still legal.

    Whether or not it would extend to the non-CSA states is debatable. Because the Union Constitution was invalidated in 1861, the Union legally ceased to exist. That might place them under the jurisdiction of the CSA Constitution since that was the only valid Constitution.

    Then again, there'd be a matter of being absorbed into the CSA under the 'adoption of new states guidelines' and whether non-statehood would legally incur any kind of jurisdiction.

    Not officially, but in many parts of the USA there are some girls trafficked into prostitution who are living in conditions of slavery, some in a city near you, maybe even in a street near you.

    In several other parts of the world there are people working in conditions which amount to slavery.

    And just a few years ago in Britain we passed the 'Modern Slavery Bill', seeking to get rid of the dreadful working conditions and living conditions of some foreign people working as domestic servants.

    Hopefully it spreads back to the North.

    Nope. Conservatives lost their slaves, now they are roaming free and triggering racists everywhere.
