Do you think that it was right that slavery ended?

Do you think that it was right that slavery ended? Abraham Lincoln ended slavery not because he was concerned about African Americans, but because it would weaken the South's economyand he would win the Civil War. Many people in the south feel that slavery was just a part of their "way of life". Ending slavery through the South in to economical turmoil.

After slavery was abolished the sharecropping system started. Sharecroppers were never able to pay off their debts.

Do you think that it was right that slavery ended ?

  • no matter what the reason was, yes it was right to end slavery no matter what, no one deserves that,even if it was there lifestyle and thats all they knew...we cannot possibly think its ok to treat another human being like that, some people have more compassion for animals then human beings but I do not agree with slavery to any extent. no matter what race, but unfortunately it was black people. the holocost shouldn't have happened as much as slavery shouldn't have happened.
