I have thought about this

You are correct, we have been told the worst things about the agrarian south, I am sure these things happened and it was abhorrent. I wonder what was daily life like for the majority of blacks on the plantations? If the white slave masters were that brutal, why would the blacks living on the plantation be allowed to watch the masters children? Why would he feel secure in turning his back? How could that slave master sleep at night with out chaining everyone up? I would burn the guys house down as he slept, first chance if I was treated like that..
I think we have been given a very different history than that which actually happened. Slavery was wrong, but it was an agrarian business where the slave and master worked together for the success of the farm. If they couldn't work together in harmony the farm would have failed.
