Nothing about this is a surprise: it obviously also appeals to the "gentile poverty" set, giving them social cachet.

the shocking enslavement of white English 'felons' ... who populated our colony from the 1780s ... was too distressing to hear. Yes, it was enslavement of the worst kind and has been conveniently air-brushed and over-looked by those who claim the greater grievance. (emphasis added)
