Slavery... you mean like this?

Early population estimates of Hispaniola, probably the most populous island inhabited by Taínos, range from 100,000 to 1,000,000 people. The maximum estimates for Jamaica and Puerto Rico are 600,000 people.[27] The Spanish priest Bartolomé de Las Casas (who was living in the Dominican Republic at the time) wrote in his 1561 multivolume History of the Indies:[28]
There were 60,000 people living on this island [when I arrived in 1508], including the Indians; so that from 1494 to 1508, over three million people had perished from war, slavery and the mines. Who in future generations will believe this?
Or how about...

Slavery in the New World predates back to 1492 when Columbus and arrived in the West Indies and were found by the Indigenous People of the Caribbean, The Tainos. Contrary to belief, the Tainos were a socially and politically complex group of horticultural people organized under a central chief or Cacique. They had an Arawak-based language which had been passed down by their ancestors, the Caribe or Arawak Indians, who were a very aggressive group contrary to the Tainos' peaceful nature.

Columbus captured more Indian slaves than he could transport to Spain in his small ships; he put the rest of them to work in mines and plantations, which he, his family, and his followers had built across the West Indies. The Europeans began to take Taino women and children both as servants and to satisfy their own appetite. The Tainos who tried to defend themselves with flimsy and ineffective weapons had no chance against the Spaniards’ horses, swords, and lances. They hunted the Indians for sport and profit - beating, raping, torturing, killing, and then using the bodies of Tainos as food for their dogs. One of their games would include lining up Taino children and see how many they could chop in half in a single blow. In one occurrence they allowed their dogs to eat a cook who resisted, while still alive. Within a matter of a lifetime six to eight million Tainos were killed, including the Haitian Taino queen Anacaona.
I'm sorry that my ancestors were victims of genocide and were unable to stick around long enough to be classified with more modern slaves. Or are you gonna back track again after saying that I could not possibly relate to having ancestors enslaved by white men? Or is it because I don't "know shit about American history"? Is it going to be about something different this time?
