Student example from this discussion……..

The day-to-day activities of a typical slave’s life included terrible working conditions, long hours, beatings, and dehumanization.  While some plantations differed on the treatment of slaves, the overall injustice of bondage was very much the same.

For plantations that did not require quite as much extensive labor, such as rice harvesting, the slaves worked under what was called the task system.  Once their daily chores and duties were completed, they were allowed leisure time with their friends and/or family. 

In other places, such as the cotton plantations of the South, life was much more difficult.  The slaves worked in what was known as the “gang system” in which they had slave drivers standing over them to ensure they worked non-stop or they would get beaten and whipped. 

In this week’s Supplemental reading of “House of Bondage: The Reality of Slavery,” Aunt Charlotte pointed out some differences between living in Virginia and Louisiana.  In Virginia, she could attend church and have prayer meetings on Sunday which was observed as a day of rest. In Louisiana, Sunday was not observed as a day of rest and they were not allowed to worship or pray or else they would be beaten.  They did not have the freedom that was allowed on some of the other plantations.

One of the biggest reasons why slaves were treated differently is based on the religion of the master.  It seems the Protestants wanted to share the teachings of the Bible with the slaves, even if only to make themselves feel better about the situation.  The Catholics in the Deep South did not observe the Sabbath on Sundays, and they did not allow or practice the teachings of Christianity amongst the slaves they owned.  They would be punished if caught worshipping at all. 

Another reason is based on the type of plantation and cash crop being grown and harvested and the amount of greed and power held by the master.  The bigger the plantation, the more slaves that were needed to work the fields.  They were driven hard and not allowed very much time for them.  If the master leaned toward the idea of paternalism, they were more likely to be allowed a little bit more freedoms during their down time.
