Outspoken author Jim Goad ("The Redneck Manifesto") joins me for a truly fascinating, candid conversation about slavery. He explains that a lot of what we "know" about America's history of slavery simply isn't true.
"If America's wealth was 'built on slavery,'" Goad asks, quoting a favourite expression of leftwing activists, "why isn't there tremendous wealth in Sub-Saharan Africa today?"
Besides which, any wealth created by slavery was wiped out during the costly Civil War.
He says that by some estimates, America had just as many white slaves as black slaves -- two-thirds of whites who came to the original 13 Colonies came in bondage as indentured servants, and a large number didn't survive their seven-year term.
"We'll never see a movie about that," Goad adds.
