Kimberly Seals Allers, editor-in-chief of MochaManual.com, poses a very provocative question on the momlogic homepage today:

Is Slavery Why Black Women Aren't Breastfeeding?

To get to the bottom of this breastfeeding business, it's important to go back. Waaay back. A long time ago, black women were notorious for nursing. In fact, slave owners used and purchased black women as wet nurses for their own children, often forcing these mothers to stop nursing their own infants to care for others. (continued)

What are your thoughts? Do you think this is still a factor in today's society?
