fact is thatI know. But I'm not sure if it is that complicated.
Slavery existed in the world for thousands of years. Xenophobia does exist.
But in modern society?
mostly isolated cases.
And slavery ended, thanks mostly to ... white people.
And I think we are now going rampart on what "racism" actually is. Lot of things are considered "racist" now, which were not 10 years ago.
We also can't expect everyone to immediatly adapt, just because young people want them to.
edit: I'm trying to stay on-topic, although its difficult because each subject is very related.
fact isNot the same Jup.
Human traffic is indeed a problem in the world.
But its not the same as lawful slavery,
which existed for thousands of years.
The majority of the article's examples point to countries such as
China and North Korea, as prime examples
of were human traffic is exloited.
In the U.S. or Europe,
human traffic is persecuted by law enforcement agencies,
and there is no law supporting any form of slavery.
there are widespread gaps in the prohibition of practices related to slaveryThats fair, but we are clearly talking about slavery in the U.S. in this topic
(which is to what my original post refers to).
Slavery doesn't exist in the U.S. anymore.
The few instances of Human traffic
are persecuted by law enforcement agencies.
Slavery is a criminal activity, not a sanctioned practice.
fact isThe issue with prisons is that there is no real solution.
The inmates work to support their own expenses: food, electricity, etc.
Otherwise should the tax.payer afford the bill?
Someone kills another person, then goes to prison,
and the tax-payers have to pay for this person?
Doesn't seem fair.
To my understanding
prisoners get a choice to either work or study.
This also gives them an opportunity
to earn money while they serve their sentence and reduce the time.
If they were on the outside
they would need to work anyways to support themselves.
Prison labour isn't slave labour.
It also provides some inmates with skills and future job opportunities.
I agree the system can be abused for profit,
and that needs handling - but there is no real solution.
