How do you think slavery influenced the evolution of both Black and White America today?

Think about the degradation of one person "owning" another human being. The slave owner assumes s/he is superior. The slave assumes s/he is inferior. For many people those attitudes aren't erased, even after several generations. We learn from our parents and in turn teach our children what we've learned.

What attitudes and problems of today can you tie in with slavery?
