I think there are people ~ not on this forum ~ who discount that an enslaved person could have any affection for an enslaver. This is an incorrect view of history.Doesn't matter, as some seem to think slaves were incapable of forming bonds, affection or loyalty.......
Personally that some did isn't surprising to me at all.
There are also people who think that because an enslaved person professed affection for an enslaver, therefore, the enslaver should be considered benevolent or humane or even charitable. That is also incorrect. It's perfectly possible to have affection for someone, while simultaneously being degraded and exploited by them.
