The slaves get brutally transported to the Americas with no respect and rights, they just want them to be appealing to buyers. They people selling them want money for the slaves and sold them work work. They did not have a choice, they got taken from their home country Africa.
Stop making noise, get some sleep so that you can look good for buyers when we arrive at land tomorrow.
HELP US PLEASE, LET US FREE!
The would whip the slaves and abuse them when they first get them to scare them, it also creates obedience. Then they would make them do work for no pay and little rights, if they did not do what they said... there would be punishment.
This slave weighs at 180 pounds and 6 feet tall, he is strong and healthy. We are putting him up for bid.
Please don't whip me!
The slaves had no choice on their lifestyle and everyday was hard, this is probably what it was like to go to sleep.
I'm soooo hungry and I can't even fall asleep this is so uncomfortable.
Indentured servant were given a good bit of rights that slaves did not have, one big thing is that they will get medical care if they needed it. Unlike the slaves where they just left them to die, they were given other rights and more respect too.
We'll get you fixed up real soon, then you can get to paying off your debt.
The indentured servants worked for people for a couple years to pay of their debt, once it was paid off they could be free. If a family member was sick/died or if they were sick/died they would have to do the work that the other people missed, or their family members would have to do it for them.
Thank you for letting me free and giving me a home to stay in, bye.
Thank you for all of your help, goodbye!
The indentured servants got treated a lot better than slaves, they were given more respect and rights. Their lifestyle was a lot better.
