Dear HBO: About that Alt-Reality “Confederate” Show. | Afroculinaria
Your show concept is cool until we begin to think of all the other alt-history moments that would be equally provocative but seem unimaginable because of our addictive, national obsession with structurally racist ideas. What if Dr. King became president or Dr. Betty Shabazz or Coretta Scott King or Fred Hampton or Myrlie Evers? What if Haiti fomented rebellion to free enslaved African Americans? What if, and this is really crazy….if enslaved Africans were completely freed in 1776 or even 1789. Or maybe shucks, full and permanent equality and voting rights after the Civil War?

In Your Debt
The Hales need someone to take care of their catatonic uncle, but they can't afford a real medical professional. Instead, they make use of the indentured servitude program to hire a debtor at a low wage.

Derek expects to hire some deadbeat but instead he gets Stiles Stilinski, an intelligent sixteen-year-old who definitely doesn't deserve to be trapped in this system. As he gets to know Stiles, Derek is left wondering how Stiles ended up in this situation, and soon he has questions about the justification of the system as a whole.

He wants to help Stiles, but he can't pay of Stiles' debt for him and he has no power over the system that holds Stiles prisoner.

It’s Not About Race! — THSPPL
Recently, I was the only person of color in a discussion group about race.

Always fun for us. During the first meeting, I introduced myself by saying that talks about race are emotional.

“I speak with a lot of emotion,” I said, “and sometimes that emotion is anger. That should be allowed, because anger is a valid response to oppression. I’m not angry at you as an individual, but at a system of injustice.”

Sometime later, a man said that he hoped we could “rise above emotions.” He wanted an “intellectual discussion” using logic so we could “really get to heart of the matter” without getting “derailed by emotions.”

Now there is a heck of a lot of subtext there, and I really want you to understand it. But I need to lay a bit of foundation. So we’re going to step back in time a bit so I can explain how a guy beating up his cousin a thousand years ago still affects how we act differently in the dining room.

Here are four myths about American slavery we need to stop believing
Myth One: The majority of African captives came to what became the United States. <> Truth: Only a little more than 300,000 captives, or 4-6 percent, came to the United States. The majority of enslaved Africans went to Brazil, followed by the Caribbean.

Myth Two: Slavery lasted for 400 years. <> Popular culture is rich with references to 400 years of oppression. There seems to be confusion between the Transatlantic Slave Trade (1440-1888) and the institution of slavery, confusion only reinforced by the Bible, Genesis 15:13.

Myth Three: All Southerners owned slaves. <> Truth: Roughly 25 percent of all Southerners owned slaves.

Myth Four: Slavery was a long time ago. <> Truth: African-Americans have been free in this country for less time than they were enslaved. Do the math: Blacks have been free for 152 years, which means that most Americans are only two to three generations away from slavery. This is not that long ago.

Eduardo looks after Mark at Harvard because he is Mark's indentured servant/slave, though Mark doesn't really think of him that way. By becoming a shareholder in the company Eduardo can be a free man, however when his shares are diluted/ or he's forced to resign as CFO it means he has to go back into service - something Mark doesn't realise until some time later when the Winklevii are suing him for rights of ownership over Eduardo who they've been looking after since he left facebook - up to the author how well he's been treated by them.
Mark realises he not only need Eduardo back in his life but needs him to be a free man... and make sweet passionate love to him.

"'re going to have to stop being reasonable, stop being nice, stop making fun of yourselves all the time, and stop rolling over. Unfortunately, we live in world – partly as the result of multiculturalism and partly as the result of leftism – assholes get their way and nice guys finish last. We've got back to that Darwinian state that we spent hundreds of years, if not thousands of years, desperately trying to get away from – we're right back there now. Squeaky wheels get the grease, difficult people get their way, and assholes get to rule...I'm not talking about violence or anything illegal, but you're going to have to be difficult, you're going to have to be aggressive, and you're going to have to be not so nice...And that is going to have require some sacrifice. There has become some hostility towards masculinity. White males are the only thing that stands between the Marxists and their goal, the leftists and their goal. And, of course, all this hatred and invective is going to be poured against white males, and so you're just going to have to embrace your gender, you're going to have embrace your ethnicity, and you're going to have to be proud of what you bring to the world – at least as proud as everyone else. No-one is coming to save you. And you are in the last permissible group to hate in the world. And because people are very tense and people need someone to hate, [white males] have become the target group for hatred, for a variety of historical reasons that are not their fault at all. It's horrible, it's unjust, it's wrong, and being nice about it isn't going to solve it." -- "If you ever want to know who the livestock are in society, who the subjugated are, who the truly exploited are, there's one very simple test: it is the group who are not allowed to get angry. If you ever get angry and people are shocked and appalled and try to put you right back in the box, that tells you immediately – as surely as a brand on your chest, as surely as leg irons on your legs – that you are part of the livestock, that you are part of the subjugated and the exploited. And if you're not allowed to get angry, that is the very best reason to get angry that I can think of."

John is a military prisoner under Colonel Caldwell's command. Controlled by Goa'uld technology, he is little more than a slave. Briefly stationed on Atlantis, his ATA gene is discovered by Rodney, who is a force to be reckoned with.
