In the new world there were many white slaves
English slaves : Convicts, Prostitutes ,Vagrants, Children [ The word Kidnapper ie Kid-Napper ; comes from the men (called “spirits) who use to steal children in London and Bristol in order to sell them as slaves in the new world] and others ( poor children, prostitutes children like in london, kidnapped Adults)
Scottish Slaves : Mainly prisoners sold by Cromwell, Aberdeen was a dangerous town for chilfren, there was a lot of kidnapping down there. Scotland was a hunting grown for slaves like west Africa.
Irish Slaves : Mainly Prisoners sold by Cromwell the butcher like the Scots. Irish were sold as slaves in the new world in order to made space for the English colonists into Ireland (Lands, Properties). They were called the “White-Niggers” in the United States and they went through many riots because of their nationality.
In Barbados they were the “Red-Legs” and they were the poorest they even survived because of the charity of Black slaves. Some white masters even called them “White Trash”….
The White slavery ( called falsely “Indentured Servant” or “servant”) was the capital and economic basement for African slavery ( see Eric Williams and Gabriel Debien). The people who sold white people and gained capital from this business like in Bristol or Liverpool turned to Africa and destroyed that continent with their former experience in selling human beings…
Spanish (Hispaniola) and Portuguese started first…The Portuguese used to send vagrant Portuguese children as slaves in India, in order to accomodate “well” with the climate….African could’nt have any chance against these professional , experienced criminals….Some slave traders sold both Africans and Whites in the new world…
They were whipped, raped, tortured, killed before the black men and women took their place for economics reasons….
