An Alternative to Negro Slavery

Negroes sometimes claim great importance for their race in the development of American economic power through their role as slaves picking cotton. Roland Martin, interviewing Richard Spencer in the aftermath of his recent "Hail Trump" speech, said precisely that "free labor from Black people" was what made America great. 

I do not wish to insult or provoke any Negroes, but this is really quite a poor argument.

How should one respond?   

Richard Spencer's response was: "We could have found another way to pick cotton." But he gives no specifics.

Some say: "If I'd known that there was going to be all this trouble I would have picked my own damned cotton." 

Others offer a different solution:

"In fact I think you could teach some chimpanzees to do some things that some Negroes couldn't do." 

This turns out to be entirely correct. In Thailand, apes are trained to pick coconuts, and to perform some other simple tasks such as Negro slaves once performed in America, and still perform in Africa, where slavery is still practiced.

How much trouble could have been avoided!

The apes in this video are not even chimpanzees but macaques, a less intelligent primate.

In reading Frank Conner's excellent work, "The South Under Siege 1839-2009," I learned that even with slavery, the South was economically poor in comparison to the industrialized North. I learned that being a black wage-slave in the North was worse than working on a plantation because whatever low wage the black individual was earning, from that wage he still had to pay for room and board himself. It was not provided as part of the work he performed. He was free to be as poor as dirt and to die early as a "free" man.

I don't think arguing about the intelligence or skill of the black is going to clinch the argument about the South's so-called economic wealth. A better knowledge of Southern history is necessary. Machinery and industrialization were what made the North rich and successful and enabled the North to win the struggle against the South. Even black people get sick and get tired of working long hours, regardless of their ineptness or intelligence. But senseless machines can go on and on much longer than any people and repairs are faster than human recovery time.
