Today in America we do not have Slavery. It is against the law. The Slaves were poorly treated. They worked all day long. Slaves where captured and stolen to slave traders to work for them. Some countries have the same rule, but some do not.

The first paragraph didn't really tell me when slavery started. Also the "duct broad twenty Africans" part does not make any sense to me.
