What does the bible say about slavery?

1 Peter 2:18 ESV
Servants, be subject to your masters with all respect, not only to the good and gentle but also to the unjust.

Colossians 4:1 ESV
Masters, treat your slaves justly and fairly, knowing that you also have a Master in heaven.

Slaves, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, with a sincere heart, as you would Christ.

Hmm, the bible says nothing negative about slavery. The book of perfect morality states that slavery is acceptable. And Christians wonder why people laugh when they say it should be the basis for laws in this country.
