Slavery in biblical times was considered a way to work your way out of poverty and gain independence for you and your family. Many cultures want it. There are two types of slavery. You can be owned by someone who is God fearing or someone who is abusive and treats the slaves as subhuman. The latter although rarely reported is going on in Saudi Arabia. 20% of Saudi Arabia's population are immigrant slaves. Abuse is rampant. They are forced to become Muslim for better treatment by their owners. Their passport is taken from them so they cannot leave and are completely dependent on their owners. This type of treatment is subhuman abuse. So there is two types of slavery and it is not based on skin color. There were Irish slaves at one time...
