Well then we should be discussing Africa, and SE Asia, and Eastern Europe, and the United States, and many other countries, because all of these places still have slavery today.

fine and dandy but that dont negate the importance of my topic!!!! just cos its happening everywhere else!!!! the united states dont have untouchables cos we dont got a caste system....yur just tryin to deny it!!!! mr gardener says that the other societys got a caste system too -- like bangaldesh and pakistan......he also says that when poeple are inslaved like in colonial times that they get whats called a 'stockholm syndrome' -- not exactly like that but kinda like it cos i forget the name exactly.... so they are oppressed then their acting like the colonial masters that enslaved them in the 1st place and so the poor indians start acting like their all british and treating the untouchables all bad

i see that you're in night school, arnold. some of our members here might not be familiar with that or have overlooked that, when they questioned your grammar. can you tell us more about your night school?

Maybe because nobody, and I mean nobody knows what the following mean:

"r"
"u"
"yur"
"laff"

And it's awfully nice of you to say it's wrong; but it does not mean anything.
