I've never said that Sharecropping and Tenant farming is the same. And I think that attempting to make an issue of the differences between the two terms in this thread is unhelpful and intended to be distracting.And I have repeatedly noted Sharecropping and Tenant farming are not the same.
Again this OP is "was sharecropping comparable with slavery" has nothing to do with some false blame game. Not seeing where the majority of your posts have had anything to do with whether you feel they are comparable or not.
As to the OP, and whether sharecropping is comparable to slavery. In truth there is only one group of people that can answer that question... those who have been both slave and sharecropper.
I think that if someone wants to make sharecropping seem no better than slavery, then they should find examples of black sharecroppers during Reconstruction who yearned to be enslaved again.
