The United States of America. "1960: "Harvest of Shame"" on YouTube. “We used to own our slaves, now we just rent them.”

Rudy,  Thanks for the memory/

This statement in the video is enough……….

“We used to own our slaves, now we just rent them.”

 Are we apologetic in what we do?  No.


Watch the entire original broadcast of one of the most celebrated documentaries of all time,  1960's "Harvest of Shame," in which Edward R. Murrow exposed the plight of America's farm workers.

This is a Black, Latino, First Nation, a whole community issue

This is still an issue in my lifetime in the 21st Century.
