They should pay US reparations!

South Carolina's own Maurice doesn't have a monopoly on pushing the slaves-really-had-it-good version of history: Atrios posts about a Christian school in Cary, North Carolina which has its students read a booklet that teaches that slavery was really pretty cushy for the slaves. An excerpt, courtesy of (the non-neutral) Atrios:

* "Nearly every slave in the South enjoyed a higher standard of living than the poor whites of the South -- and had a much easier existence." (page 30)

Maybe Acidman can sue for reparations, to be paid by the descendants of those greedy, slacker slaves . . .
