Michael Moore, the film maker, is defended form a white slave. 10,000 Scots were captured in a battle during the 1600's. His many greats was enslaved & transported to New England. I find Lewis Gates' PBS show an endless source of fascinating did-bitts.\n\nThese were not white people enslaved,like the Scots in the program. These were descendants of mixed race people. In the institution of slavery sexual exploitation of female slaves was not only fun, but profitable as their offspring could be worked or sold. In a community with a large free population, there could be consensual relations as well.
