Republicans to Bring Back Slavery in the USA…

…or something. I’m not quite sure what to make of this passage from a pledge presidential candidates are to sign if they want the support of an influential Iowan organisation called FAMiLY. Michelle Bachmann has already signed.

Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet sadly a child born in to slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an African- American baby born after the election of the USA’s first African-American President.

So, is this them saying that African-Americans had it better on the plantations???
