Indigenous Slaves[edit]

Just want to say that the term used to describe slaves in that part of the article actually means servant. It was used in china mostly by the emperor's eunuchs and doesn't really carry the modern tone of slave as it did in the past. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 207.38.213.212 (talk) 20:29, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

Catholic or Jesuits[edit]

"Oda Nobunaga was presented with a black slave by Catholic priests," but the Yasuke specifies Jesuits. I'm not well versed in the different Christians sects but those two aren't the same are they? 198.6.46.11 14:24, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Jesuits could be considered a type of Catholic, but their philosophy and interpretation of the significance of Jesus's life is distinguishable enough from other sects to warrant them their own sect, in my opinion. Enderandpeter (talk) 01:18, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Reference #9: Dead[edit]

Sadly, the ninth reference to a Korea Times article contains a dead link. Enderandpeter (talk) 01:18, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Start of slavery[edit]

"The practice of slavery in Japan developed only after the establishment of Yamato period (3rd Century)" How can this possibly be known? I suppose the first mention of slavery just happens to come from the 3rd century? Ornilnas (talk) 13:36, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
