White Cargo: The Forgotten History of Britain's White Slaves in
White Cargo is the forgotten story of the thousands of Britons who lived and died in bondage in Britain’s American colonies.In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, more than 300,000 white people were shipped to America as slaves. Urchins were swept up from London’s streets to labor in the tobacco fields, where life expectancy was no more than two years. Brothels were raided to provide “breeders” for Virginia. Hopeful migrants were duped into signing as indentured servants, unaware they would become personal property who could be bought, sold, and even gambled away. Transported convicts were paraded for sale like livestock.Drawing on letters crying for help, diaries, and court and government archives, Don Jordan and Michael Walsh demonstrate that the brutalities usually associated with black slavery alone were perpetrated on whites throughout British rule. The trade ended with American independence, but the British still tried to sell convicts in their former colonies, which prompted one of the most audacious plots in Anglo-American history.This is a saga of exploration and cruelty spanning 170 years that has been submerged under the overwhelming memory of black slavery. White Cargo brings the brutal, uncomfortable story to the surface.

White Slavery In Colonial America: And Other Documented Facts Supressed from the Public
For decades the story has been told! Major motion pictures have used it as a premise! We even teach it to our children! But what if African slavery is the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on any one group of people? Not to suggest it didn't happen but rather not in the context often presented as factual history. A conspiracy to suppress over 200-years of American history has kept everyone in the dark, made African Americans feel inferior and fueled the illusion of white superiority. When we think of slavery in American history, we are conditioned to go back only so far; the Trans-Atlantic African Slave Trade. But the truth of the matter is if we went back just a little further, we would find a world just as cold and just as cruel; directed exclusively towards white people! They were kidnapped, put in chains, transported across vast oceans, torn from their families, auctioned, whipped, tarred and feathered, lynched, beat to death, malnourished, denied medical and worked until they literally dropped dead. Contrary to popular belief, America did not begin as a colony built on the labor of African slaves. This earliest and understandably most forgotten period in American history began with the systematic exploitation of labor, targeting only white slaves!
