European “Christianity” is so far removed from the original concept of Christianity and it’s followers and founder (i.e. Jesus Christ) that it’s something entirely different
If you ignore the context of this reality you won’t find a sensible answer to a question like this

Ok so in Colonial Virginia the goal of the colony was to make money (obviously) but another goal (on paper anyway) was to “Convert the heathens”. So a christian had legal rights, a non-christian (aka Native American) had none. Unless they converted and then they did get some rights. 
Enter african american slavery. Black people first came to Jamestown VA in 1619, and, shock and awe, some of these  black people were coming from other portuguese colonies and were already christians. So, technically, they should have been protected by law. People sued for freedom, for example, a woman named Elizabeth Key. She was half-white, a christian, and the terms of her indentured servitude should have been up. Legally she had a very strong case to be freed. Was she freed? Hell no. 
In fact, in 1667 a law (Hening’s vol. II act III) made it so that slaves who were baptized would absolutely not be freed. You know why? So that it would encourage more white slave holders to baptize their slaves without fear of losing their property. But new servants arriving in Virginia who were already Christian could not be enslaved. 
Does it make any sense? No. Only to racists. 
So white people wanted slaves to be christian, because that fit with the whole converting the heathens thing they were so into and was a sound political move back home in Europe, but they absolutely certainly did not want slaves to be freed.

"But the overall problem is one of a culture where instead of seeing women as, you know, people, protagonists of their own stories just like we are of ours, men are taught that women are things to ‘earn,’ to ‘win.’ That if we try hard enough and persist long enough, we’ll get the girl in the end."
