They are or farm equipment and should treated as so!

Okay, I am pretty sure this is a joke but for the sake of debate, let's pretend you are serious.

1. That's racist. Why? Because you are targeting only one group of people for slavery and implying that Africans are no more than equipment to be exploited which is inhumane. It is not the 18th century any more.

2. Now your argument is that they are farm equipment and should be treated as such but let's look into this:

Definition of equipment: the necessary items for a particular purpose
Definition of farm equipment: equipment that is used or intended for use in farming operations, including any combine, tractor, implement, engine, motor or attachment

Thus farming equipment is the necessary items used for farming. Slaves are not necessary for farming, for one you can pay them which is a humane solution as well as a legal one. Plus, agriculture is moving more to machinery and human workers are losing jobs to machines that can do them better and faster. Reverting back to slavery is immoral, a waste of time, and quite inefficient. Going back to slavery is a hit on the economy too so even if you don't think it's immoral, it is still going to have negative consequences.
