Between 50 and 67 percent of white immigrants to the American colonies, from the 1630s to the American Revolution, had traveled under indenture, a form of slavery now banned by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.  Chances are that most everybody you run into today are going to be descendants of slaves no matter what their color.  Slavery still exists today, with estimates of 30 million people enslaved across the world.  You will notice on the map that the two regions historically linked to the evils of slavery (America and Western Europe) have among the world's lowest levels of slavery.
