Irish were not indentured servants!! if you kidnap children to work on a field for no pay THAT'S SLAVERY. They were treated worse than Africans because they were "pagan heathens" and died under hard labor in the sun. (Yeah all those jokes about how gingers turn into ash? That's why there's the slur "red neck and red legs" those are slang terms for Irish slaves whose skin burned on plantations)
You don't enslave two nations and call them servants and workers....
In my opinion, this is still wrong and a weak correction. If they want to correct it, how about calling it human trafficking? Because that's exactly what it was.
"..that it would change the caption in the digital and print versions of the book to describe the arrival of African slaves in the United States as “a forced migration.”

When I was small I was always restraining myself when I got onto high balconies because I always wanted to try stepping out onto the air and just walking. Part of me believed that if I had no fear at all, no idea that it could possibly fail, I would walk on air. I never was without a frisson of fear so I never stepped off a balcony.
But this I'd walk on, yep.
As you might have predicted, Google is calling "pretty much bullshit" on this one:
