#12YearsASlave Proving slavery & exploitation hasn’t changed much if not new tactics added to the trade since not just the days of legal American slavery but since the beginning of time when slavery began. I finally viewed the film tonight which was from the true story of #SolomonNorthrup so #moving to say the very least. Except now the only difference is slavery doesn’t consist of skin complexion so much as exploitation of vulnerability in whatever way vulnerability exists. Now slavery is across the globe & affects all skin shades, gender, class, ages, & so on. The new slave trade (‪#‎HumanTrafficking‬) is a whole other monstrous beast which clearly evolved from the slave trade of the day. I don’t think it really ever stopped it just morphed into another form of slavery. Not much has changed in the slave trade other than the numbers have sky rocketed to the most ever recorded in history of those enslaved 27 to 30 Million in fact which generates billions yearly. The basic oppression & tactics are all the same however it’s simply ballooned to new heights of nefariousness.
