Earlier today; in one of my history classes; we viewed Oprah's "Inside Auschwitz" with Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel.
I decided to stop by my mother's for a bit and told her how depressing the video was; and how my whole class was silent.
It was so quiet you could hear dust mites walk across the carpet. People had tears and their eyes.
And my mother has the audacity to tell me that the slaves' suffering was worse. There aren't any levels of suffering.
Suffering is suffering. That's just like saying there's different levels of sin; when a sin is a sin no matter how small it may be.

Your mother isn't 'audacious'. I'm being neutral here when I say that yes, there's different levels of suffering. Losing an item or a person you cherish is suffering, as with losing a limb or the ability to be independent. The Holocaust was done by a man blinded by prejudice and his actions eradicated more than 6 million Jews, many more who suffered in concentration camps. I understand what you're driving at but the slaves and the victims were similar- neither had a choice of freedom. Sin has nothing to do with this, this is acts committed when people lack understanding of each other. Blacks were subjegated because they were treated as sub-human, like the Jews who were deemed as 'Non-Aryan' in Hitler's regime. Not only the Jews were affected by this status- blacks, Latinos, the disabled and mentally ill, Asians, Arabs, they were all given such a status.
