Ive never heard of "sharecropping"

It's tenant farmers renting the land from an owner and paid the rent at the end of the growing season with a part of the crop.

It isn't slavery in anyway and you could just up and leave if you didn't want to do it anymore.

It's still exploitation because the owners are taking a cut for no reason other than they have a piece of paper to say they are entitled.
