Respectable Trade

Posted by Kelly Uccello on October 6, 2000 at 20:27:48:

Hello everyone,
I finally watched Respectable Trade part one, and half of part two. I really don't know what to say, only that I'm disturbed to "see" (through film)the way people treat people. We all know that slavery existed, in America, England, Egypt, and I'm sure just about everywhere else at one point in time. My point is that I'm really getting upset about all of this. What does this say for our species, our societies, our governments, and our cultures? Are we all not victims, in a sense, of the atrocities our forefathers commited. What more do we say or do, or do we recognize it, put it away, and pray it never happens again? Does anybody have any words of wisdom on how I should digest all of this disturbing information?
