I have seen remarks such as it was just a continuation of slavery.

Recently a modern figure compared poor whites to slavery, not exactly in the context I'll ask. We wont go to who, but try to stay on what I ask which somewhat stems from his remarks.

But there were numerous poor white sharecroppers well into the 1900's. If a comparison of sharecropping to slavery is accurate or appropriate, would it be fair to likewise compare poor white sharecroppers to slaves or slavery? Wouldn't they be in effect held in place in social and economic status as much as any other sharecroppers? Because to some degree, ones social status is seldom seperate from ones economic status, why their were terms such as "cracker"
