HEADLINE – SLAVERY SUSPECTS ORIGINALLY FROM INDIA AND TANZANIA

A cultural misunderstanding

MUNCIE, Indiana – Officials at Scotland Yard revealed that the two men who allegedly “enslaved” three women were from India and Tanzania and that the incident is the result of a cultural misunderstanding.

“They thought they had legally purchased these women,” explained Sgt. Nigel Himpple of Scotland Yard.

“We were cheated. We want our money back.” said one of the suspects identified currently as “Bruce” due to privacy considerations. “How were we to know women cannot be bought and sold freely? What kind of madhouse is this, where women are treated like men?  Do you also give rights to your goats? Do you let them vote? Do you actually pay them for their labor?” Bruce asked in disgust.

“It is very common in many parts of the world for men to acquire women through marriage or direct purchase – there really is very little difference – and put them to work,” said Professor Rhappee Kanasta, an expert in cultural differences.  “In exchange for their honest labor they are clothed, fed and they are not beaten.  It is a win-win arrangement.”

    The Founders struggled with that very issue. A desert topping or a furntiture wax, that was the question concerning the slaves of the 1700s.

    They decided they were both.

    Where did we go so terribly wrong?
