  •  Abraham Lincoln addressed this bullpuckey (0+ / 0-)

    about slaves being treated well and actually having it better as slaves than as freepersons.  I'm paraphrasing, but Lincoln said (more eloquently) that among these whites extolling the wondrous treatment of slaves, he'd never heard of a single one who volunteered to be a slave.
