if the pay to pick would be 250/hr, that would mean the sell price for cotton would be exponentially higher

high enough for them to find new slaves

theres nothing wrong with honest pay for honest work

Nothing wrong with picking cotton, the problem was with our treatment and payment

Let's ask some questions of the people that profited from slavery? Would they free slaves? Pay them fairly? Not use subversive tactics against the people you kidnapped? Do what you can to preserve their culture? Would they pick cotton? 

There a lot of questions to ask before I consider what's being asked with the "would I pick cotton" question

Yes. Hell, I'm getting paid for it. And getting paid $250 an hour at that. It'd be different if I was being asked to pick it just for the hell of it.
