That's kind of funny. I can see a white nationalist getting a little thrill owning cotton fields worked by slaves.

However, slavery is said to have been abolished.

Who is picking the cotton though? Is it illegal alien laborers paid less than minimum wage with no labor protections or rights? That's a form of slavery.

"White people could have figured out another way to pick cotton [than black slavery]," Spencer said. "We do it now."

Having hispanic slaves pick cotton...

Looks like they now use this big John Deere machine.

Apparently the expensive middle eastern cotton cloth is still hand picked, which is claimed to produce better cotton.

Cotton fields ideally are picked by hand three and four times each harvest season. The bolls on the plants mature at different rates. A single machine harvest combines immature cotton, mature cotton and debris. Hand harvest is of only mature cotton. Hand pickers pick the lint from the boll,  preserving the cotton fiber intact and leaving the plant undamaged.

It's on its way back baby.

You have a government of white nationalists. What the hell do you think they want? To work? Hell no.

Do you get paid in bitcoin or rubles? I read rubles are great on the black market. Nobody tracks currency from a failed state.
