Oh, c'mon people! A little sense of humor?! A little sense of history?. Slavery was an institution on which most of humanity relied on for thousands of years. Slavery, for many, was the only means of survival and a chance to procreate. Slavery did not automatically mean cruelty. Indeed, in some societies humane treatment of slaves was considered mandatory. It's been said that whomever acquired a slave, has acquired himself a master. In our own, 'humane' society people are left to die hungry and homeless in the streets. Is that OK, since they are "FREE"? Finally, how about a little humility? When are we going to learn not to make a hasty judgements of a foreign culture and its values?

I am completely horrified that Leonard and his guest just joked about owning slaves. "Well it's easier to cook labor-intensive dishes if you have a lot of slaves," he said AND THEN THEY BOTH LAUGHED. WHY IS HE STILL ON THE AIR
