    "Treated them kindly" simply means "didn't administer lots of beatings." I heard that phrase a lot as a defense against notions that slaves were routinely and savagely beaten.

    Of course even if that were not the case saying "they weren't beaten as much as you might think" is such an incredibly pathetic defense to the institution of slavery that someone should be ashamed for saying it out loud.
