Weegy: Prison labor has its roots in slavery. After the 1861-1865 Civil War, a system of "hiring out prisoners" was introduced in order to continue the slavery tradition. [ Freed slaves were charged with not carrying out their sharecropping commitments (cultivating someone else's land in exchange for part of the harvest) or petty thievery - which were almost never proven - and were then "hired out" for cotton picking, working in mines and building railroads. From 1870 until 1910 in the state of Georgia, 88% of hired-out convicts were Black. In Alabama, 93% of "hired-out" miners were Black. In Mississippi, a huge prison farm similar to the old slave plantations replaced the system of hiring out convicts. The notorious Parchman plantation existed until 1972. ] (More)

debnjerry please don't mind, I have something to say. The answer you gave is correct and I got that question also but I answered that only with one link. The reason is the answer you took was from a revenue sharing site. I am a long time freelancer and webmaster. I am a Google adsense affiliate also. We people earn money from our contents. PR is very important for us as is the uniqueness of the content. When these contents are copied we badly suffer as Google algorithm tends to penalize plagiarized contents. We could end up with our affiliation being canceled. So, what do we do when our content is plagiarized? We file a DMCA as a legal action and send it to the website that is in this case Weegy. What will weegy do then? They are bound to take off the answer. But until that the writer will face some great trouble with search ranking and traffic. Copyscape, Google alert, Hubdefender are some paid/free tool we use to find out these plagiarism. If you take anything from a free source like Wikipedia or yahoo answers that's a whole different story. I also take things from others article sometimes but it's not good and most times I take as less as I can so that, that don't harm the author. There are strict law on copyright also. I told all these as I think you might not know about the fact. As a freelance publisher I feel myself hurt when I see a fellow publisher hurt. Many a expert make this mistake as they don't know the rule. Weegy should create a blog about it.

Well, I posted to link to cite the source. Most of the answers I have read on Weegy are cut and paste, but the majority of experts do not even cite a source. I always cite where the information came from so the reader can read for further information. This is the same thing I see on ChaCha too. I believe the biggest problem is copying without citing a source. If you do a search on the majority of answers here you will see they are taken from a website, and most of the time they are not cited at all.

Yes, I know. I myself have also done that without citing. But citing also don't help the actual author. Google is very arrogant.
