White slavery has been long before black, and more brutal. Back then it was not called slavery, because nobody owned you. Slavery was for childeren and divorced women, all others were treated less than a slave, the rats that lived with them were practically equals. It would have been nicer to see progress sooner, like within 170 years, but that would have been a luxury.
Repression, is all in the mind, if it were so, no one would have an opportunity to progress. Believing so, is making yourself a slave to your own repression.

Slave trade
Social tirade
Who's to blame?
Another political game

Deprivation
Near starvation

Conditions deplorable
Work intolerable

Diseased and Infested
Socially distrusted

Scrounging for pocket change
Led without ropes or chains
Taking a kick to the groin
Just to own a lousy coin
 
White as the Irish or Scot
Your homeland, not
In London you lay and rot

Slavery inforced
Without remorse
As if life's choice
Death is your rejoice
