Does The Bible Condone Slavery? (Ephesians 6:5-9)

Today when someone mentions the Bible in a conversation about current events one common retort is, “Oh…is that the same Bible that condones slavery?” 
The “question” is sometimes intended as a checkmate. The one who mentioned the Bible is supposed to shut up and walk away ashamed they even dared to mention such an irrelevant and tasteless book. 
But what if we really explored the question? What if we went deeper than the tweets and the sound bites? Does the Bible condone slavery? Or does it actually contain truth designed to destroy slavery and racism from the inside out?
