"To Be A Slave" Book Review

From my Goodreads Reviews

This book is incredibly powerful. The commentary from the editor, however, at times leaves much to be desired. Everything from making pretty racist remarks about Native Americans (namely that they were too lazy to work as slaves or that their societies were primitive and this contributed to their supposed laziness??) to dismissing the stories from slaves who expressed love of their masters as “perverse” rather than exploring the idea that it was a complex and deeply unhealthy “love” likely based on something more akin to Stockholm’s Syndrome than true affection… The commentary isn’t always so bluntly and aggressively problematic, but it definitely has those moments. 440 more words
