A study of our history will show that one of the ways the slaves were kept down was to dehumanize them. Slaves, and more particularly the female slaves were not supposed to be deserving of honor, they were not worthy of having any dignity or self- respect, of modesty or shame, or privacy of person. The slaves could not complain if their wife or daughter or sister was taken for sex with or without consent. And a master could see them naked or near naked if he so desired. We have surely come a long way, baby!

In the old days, the slaves were not allowed to have any shame, dignity or honor and education, in the 20th century we surrendered it all willingly and called it progress. Mohammed N. Razavi , 2004.
