Slave Acculturation - Slave Acculturation The seasoning process, as applied to the treatment of plantation slaves, was designed to ensure not only that the slaves would become totally dependent upon the dictates of their owners but also to destroy the cultural links which the slaves had with their former homelands. In the West African kingdoms which provided one of the major source of slaves at the height of the triangle trade, slavery was part of the indigenous culture; however, the motivation behind African domestic slavery was for the main part political, and intricately bound up with the way in which the capture of those from neighbouring tribes would allocate bargaining power to the captors; it was not necessary to impose a process of acculturation on the slaves in order to ensure their total obedience....   [tags: American History]

Dehumanizing Effect of Slavery - ... Not allowing slaves to know too much about themselves had a dehumanizing effect on them, because it implied that the worth of a slave was equal to, or even less than animals. Douglass reinforces this point by stating something he overheard from his master; “Horses, men, cattle, pig, children, and women hold the same rank” (49). Douglass makes it very clear that not only were slaves talked to like animals, but also treated like them. They were fed like animals, clothed like animals, and were used as animals....   [tags: Literature Analysis]

ESOPs - Many companies sponsoring an employee stock ownership plan and trust ("ESOP Companies") face a significant issue after either the debt incurred to purchase the ESOP's interest is repaid in full or the ESOP reaches its maximum ownership level (e.g., 100%) by some other means. At that point, it gets very difficult to provide broad-based equity incentives to new employees who were not employed during the time the debt was being repaid or the original contributions were made. Basically, this sometimes develops two classes of employees: those who are owners through the ESOP and those who are not because no shares are being allocated....   [tags: essays research papers] 490 words

slave families - Aside from what the owners and overseers thought, slaves lived their own lives. They made friends, fell in love, played and prayed, sang, told stories, and engaged in the necessary chores of day to day living. These things as well as family and religion were also important to the slaves. Throughout the South, the slave owners defined the living arrangements of slaves. Most slaves lived together in nuclear families with a mother, father, and children (Phillips 1929, 14). The stability of the slave family was often challenged due to various reasons: no state law recognized marriage among slaves, masters rather than parents had legal authority over slave children and the possibility of forced separation, through slave trade or sale were an issue of every slave family....   [tags: essays research papers] 432 words
