20 years a slave


Finding the right Dom is a very hard thing to do. slave understands this all to well, 20 years it searched for Mistress, 20 years it waited, 20 years to finally find its OWNER for life.

In 20 years, a lot happened, it did a lot of drugs ( clean and sober going on 4 years) suffered a lot of heartbreak, went to prison, and more. slave is finally owned, it is finally in the possession of its rightful OWNER MISTRESS @lykethebird. The point of this is that slave understands all to well the tribulations that come with finding the right Dom to own you, it isn’t easy, and sometimes the search can create insecurities. Unfortunately a lot of Doms wouldn’t give slave the time of day. The doms that did, took whatever money it had, and left it broken, broken mind, broken heart, and broken submission, because of that, when slave found Mistress it pushed MISTRESS away. Mistress @lykethebird saw through all the insecurities slave had to the submissive heart. She stuck through all slaves temper tantrum, its disrespect, and its disobedience, She used the service it loves as a punishment, SHE let it flop in the wind. January 28 Mistress sends slave a message, it had been away from Mistress for over a month and a half, and it was desperate. slaves phone was going to get shut off because it couldn’t pay until 3 days after the bill would be due, and in the message Mistress said “I realize that its phone getting shut off can’t help its insecurities, and I don’t want it losing touch with Mistress, so I put $45 in its account to pay its phone bill”. When it read that message, it almost passed out. it asked Mistress “why”? Mistress with HER ever SUPERIOR MIND said “ because I want it to know that it is My property, and that I do want it around, and the money was a loan anyway ”. slave cried after all it had done to Mistress in all its insecurities, Mistress put more value in slave, than it put in itself. Today, slave is truly OWNED BY MISTRESS @lykethebird and it values its submission to Mistress very much. slave will do pretty damn close to ANYTHING for Mistress @lykethebird and it thanks HER for letting it. MISTRESS @lykethebird OWNS slave, it is HER PROPERTY, SHE DOES WHAT SHE WANTS TO it, and it is grateful! THANK YOU MISTRESS @lykethebird FOR OWNING slave, THANK YOU MISTRESS @lykethebird FOR MAKING slave YOUR BITCH, THANK YOU MISTRESS @lykethebird FOR ALWAYS BEING SUPERIOR!


The Atlantic Slave Trade in Two Minutes

315 years. 20,528 voyages. Millions of lives.

By Andrew Kahn and Jamelle Bouie

Usually, when we say “American slavery” or the “American slave trade,” we mean the American colonies or, later, the United States. But as we discussed in Episode 2 of Slate’s History of American Slavery Academy, relative to the entire slave trade, North America was a bit player. From the trade’s beginning in the 16th century to its conclusion in the 19th, slave merchants brought the vast majority of enslaved Africans to two places: the Caribbean and Brazil. Of the more than 10 million enslaved Africans to eventually reach the Western Hemisphere, just 388,747—less than 4 percent of the total—came to North America. This was dwarfed by the 1.3 million brought to Spanish Central America, the 4 million brought to British, French, Dutch, and Danish holdings in the Caribbean, and the 4.8 million brought to Brazil.

This interactive, designed and built by Slate’s Andrew Kahn, gives you a sense of the scale of the trans-Atlantic slave trade across time, as well as the flow of transport and eventual destinations.


$10 Reward. Absented herself last evening, the slave girl MARY JANE, about 20 years of age, and remarkably white for a slave, but when spoken to has the accent of a negress. It is supposed that she has been enticed away by some white person. The above reward will be paid for her apprehension on application to WILLIAM COLLERTON.
