WHAT DOES SLAVOCRACY MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Plantocracy

A plantocracy, also known as a slavocracy, is a ruling class, political order or government composed of plantation owners. A number of early European colonies in the New World were largely plantocracies, usually consisting of a small European settler population relying on a predominantly West African chattel slave population, and later, "freed"-Black and poor-white sharecroppers for labour. These plantocracies proved to be a decisive force in the anti-abolitionist movement. One prominent organization largely representing a number of plantocracies was the "West Indies Lobby" in the British Parliament. It is credited in constituting a significant impetus in delaying the abolition of the slave trade from taking place in the 1790s to being implemented in 1806-1808; and likewise, with respect to prospects of emancipation being proclaimed in the 1820s, to it being implemented in 1834-1838.
