  1. I don't think there is a time where slavery is ever acceptable. I personally think slavery is cruel and unusual punishment. To me, I think slavery is when a person is forced to do work, and punished if not done properly or not done at all. Slaves are usually never paid and barely get any food or water.

  2. I think that slavery is never acceptable because no one person should be thought of less then other people. I think that any type of slavery is wrong because they work harder then most workers and they don't even get payed and they are treated horribly. Even if it's not slavery like it was one hundred years ago it is still wrong.

  3. There is never ever a time for any type of slavery. People should not deserve to be punshed or put to work. Just because a person acts different compared to everyone else, that does not mean that they have to be so badly punished for it. Even if that person is a different color and has a different belief of culture, the people that are apart of this horrible slavery should really stand up for all of this. People have the right to take responsibility for themselves and they should not not punished.

  4. I don't think there is ever a time that slavery is acceptable. Slavery is not right and not fair at all. Some people who believe that slavery is right don't understand that everyone is equal and no one should be treated less than anyone else. I think this website is very sad that these people have no way out and forced into it.

  5. I believe in equal rights and that everyone should be treated the same way, therefore slavery is never acceptable. People should be able to live their own lives, have fun, get married, have families & every other fulfilling experiences, not serving someone else & getting beaten or denied food when done something the wrong way. Reading about that one Filipino made me think about myself and how if I was not living here I could be like her and basically be living on hell on earth for just being a certain race. I believe people that think slavery is okay should be put away.

  6. I think slavery is very cruel and is not right. Holding someone against their will and making them do you work is not acceptable. Everyone in the world should have equal rights. No one should be punished for no reason. The article makes me think how lucky we are that were not slaves.

  7. I do not think slavery is ever acceptable. Every person in the world is equal and no one should be thought less of than anyone else. Forcing someone else to do their work for punishment or because they are of a specific race is definitely not acceptable. Slaves barely ever get fed or are given water, and they get treated disrespectfully. I believe in equal rights and I think slavery is wrong.

  8. I dont think slavery is ever right or acceptable. Its hard to think people still do it, the article almost makes it sound worse than it was 100 years ago. Slavery is cruel and it's kind of like punishing a strainger for just being at the wrong place at the wrong time. It's wrong.

  9. I think that this website gives the reader a good understanding of what's going on with slavery around the world. Slavery is wrong, and there is no excuse for capturing or tricking people for money. No one should be treated differently just because they look different. Taking people from their families and forcing them to do thing that they don't want to do with out pay is torture. People have rights, and don't deserve to be treated as pets. Sex slaves are tortured for money and amusement, because of selfish, lazy people who feel that it's allowed to treat people this way. I think that this website sums up the fact that slavery is just wrong, with details and real stories in the real world.

  10. Slavery should never be allowed. It is wrong and inhumane. People say that slavery ended in 1865, but today people still are slaves and have slave owners. People use slaves because its a lot cheaper than paying employees to work their land. Employees cost money and slaves are practically free. One person should never "own" another person. It's wrong and very cruel. I'm am so glad that I am not a slave and that I live in a great society.

  11. I think that slavery is really cruel because holding people against their beliefs is not right. People who where slavery owners back in the days,they should treat others the way they would want to be treated if they where slaves. Humans are not other peoples property,they have feelings and certain people just need to know that.Im very grateful that Slavery ended and that our Country has Freedom. Every one should be treated equal and everyone should also have freedom of speech! Im glad that Me and my Family didn't have to go through slavery.

  12. I think slavery is very cruel thing that Americans and many other countries do to people who have the same rights as they do. The Employees are money hungry and greedy for more. They want to rule others and have a right to do it. I think that people who are tricked in to being a slave have to fight and try to get away from these mean, rude people. I think that the people who created the underground railroad were very smart and tried to help the slaves who were slaves. Slavery is still going on today and that is a terrible thing. We need to end this right away.

  13. I don't think that slavery is ever acceptable. Everybody should be equal, and treated the same way. Slaves were treated like they were not even people, and there are still slaves today in different parts of the world. Everybody should be able to do what ever they want, instead of doing what someone else tells them to do.

  14. I think that slavery is unexeptable and should never happen and very cruel. Even though cheaper to have a slave and not pay them properly or not at all it should never happen. i thinks its wrong to force someone to do something against there will of doing something they don't want to do. i think that every human being should be treated like everyone else. I also think that if anyone is caught owning or having a slave should face serious punishment.

  17. I don't think there will ever be a time where slavery is right. This article shows that there is still slavery going on and nobody is doing anything about it. The case about Dada Ould Mbarek is really sad because his whold family is working for a spoiled man. The part about Israel is is sad too because he is only a 12 year old. Slavery was wrong 100 years ago and its wrong now.

  18. This website shows that there is still slavery going on in the world today even though many countries have claimed otherwise. I believe that there is never a time when slavery is acceptable. People who think they are superior to other cultures or races feel that they can just capture other human beings and use them for there own purposes. What these people don’t understand is that all are created equal. No specific person is better than another. No human being should have the right to take control of another’s life. We need to come together and put an end to all slavery.

  19. I think slavery is not acceptable. It is very cruel and unfair. Everyone should have equal rights and also everyone should be treated with respect. i think slavery is a very bad thing because it takes away the freedom of people and also that they are forced to do things they dont want to do. I think slavery will never be acceptable.

  20. Slavery should never be acceptable. All people are created equal and should be treated that way. No one is better than anyone no matter how much money they have or the skin color they have, or anything. The article mentioned how some women are tricked into coming to another country in hopes for a job, instead they are taken in as house slaves and are not able to escape and are beaten to discipline them. That is not right.

  21. No, I don't think there is ever a time where slave... No, I don't think there is ever a time where slavery is acceptable. It's unbelievable that this is going on in the United States. The United States is suppose to be a free country. It's unacceptable that children are even allowed to work in any country-Let alone without any pay and against their will. Slavery is a horrible process because once one family member is a slave, the generations after will be slaves as well. Slavery can take many forms most are tricked into slavery or born into it. Slaves can be forced to make carpets, or forced to work on a farm, or even be forced to be a prostitute.

  22. I don't think that slavery is ever acceptable. People can't be bought or used like their nothing. People say that slavery is gone but apparently it is still happening. Slavery is one of the most terrible things in the world. Everyone should be treated the same. Slaves are human just like us and shouldn't be treated bad.Slavery is very cruel. I hope one day that slavery will end.

  23. I feel that slavery is unacceptable in all forms and practices. I feel that slavery puts an emphasis on dehumanization because the slaves are, in the master or "employers" eyes are worse then them because they are black or they're jews or even just because the slave is a women. Slaves that are born into slavery no very little besides hard work and labor. They don't have nor ever had fun. Even if slaves or free most of them have never ever had an education so they have no chances of surviving unless they are taken care of and looked after. so just simply ending slavery completely and forever will stop slavery but it will make an all new world of problems for the slaves and the rest of the population. it would have been a lot better if slavery just never happened. slavery is just wrong no matter the reason or the work the slave does. working for hours with no pay or play with fear of getting beaten or killed if you don't work to your masters expectation would make the most positive guy see the negative side of life.

  24. Slavery is very cruel and unjust. People should be able to have the same rights as everyone else even if they're from another country, have a different religion, or look different from us. People have become so greedy they don't want to spend their own money to have people work for them. They rather force slaves to work for them with no pay and little respect. Thinking about all these horrible slavery has made me realize how lucky i am for living here in America, where I have the same rights as everyone is the country.

  25. Morally its never acceptable to hold someone in captivity and force them to do things and beat them. Legally in the United States and other countries you can not own a slave. Though there are ways to bend the rules, such as being on private property where no one can see and not necessarily calling it slavery but people that are growing into debt and must stay and work to get out.

  26. I dont believe that there is ever a time where slavery is acceptable.People should be able to be free and do what they plaese. Such as following thier religion and their own traditions and customs. Nobody wants to be owned by someone and do EVERYTHING for them and not get anything in return.Overall in my opinion slavery is not acceptable.

  27. I think that slavery is never acceptable. There is no circumstance where absolute control over another human being is right. Slavery isn't employing people to work, it is stealing their rights and freedom, and forcing them to serve you and get nothing in return. This website shows that even though slavery has been forbidden by law in the United States, it is still being practiced in some places. The law cannot stop this because they are jobs on private property, which can't be investigated.

  28. I think slavery is never acceptable because it's just abusing people when you shouldn't be allowed to. Everyone should have freedom of rights and freedom of speech, no one should be imprisoned.

  29. Slavery has never been acceptable ever since the first day Europeans decided to use Africans as slaves. Slavery is not acceptable because it just means that a human being is taking another human being's rights away just because they feel they are superior. This website shows that many countries need to investigate slavery and get rid of it as soon as possible.

  31. There is one place in which I find slavery acceptable, and that is jail. Other than that, there is no way slavery should happen. Slavery used to exist because of money. People should work for money, not just sit there doing nothing as they watch slaves work at their demand. I thought that all countries ended slavery. Instead, the website http://www.injusticeline.com/slave1.html told me that two countries, Mauritania and Sudan, did not end slavery. I like how they call this website "Injustice line" because slavery is unfair. Also, "Modern Day Slavery Around the World" is a headline.

  32. I believe that everyone has the right to live a happy and successul life, or at least have the opportunity to. Slavery should never be allowed no matter what race or where a person is from. When I look at someone, I think of them as a person and all people deserve human rights. By enslaving someone, you're basically depriving them of their basic rights which is not only illegal, but a very personal thing. I hope one day slavery will be completely gone.

  33. in my perspective i believe slavery is not right, killing little kids or killing there parents right in front of them.i'd heard from my dance teacher that picnic is what they use to say for hanging the slaves they would go out and hang one of the slaves on the tree, but they had to pick a slave. And i find it awful how they made them work while they are sick, and how they have the kids working as slaves.

  34. I believe that it is very interesting to see how the world thinks that slavery is not going on. Many people think that it ended long ago!

  35. Slavery, many say slavery is gone, but it's not, not at all. Slavery shouldn't ever be acceptible it never was and never will be, exept possibly for prisoners with life sentances. It outrages me to see that slavery is still promenate in so many countries. Including the United States! Ridiculous, in fact what I said about slavery for Prisoners is too cruel. When I read about the child slaves, dept slaves, prostitues in mining towns, and US cash crop slaves, I couldn't belive it. These people haven't done aanything but fall for the cheap tricks the slavers forced onto them.
