No, it simply recognizes that slavery will happen and is making sure that slaves are treated with dignity and respect. Also no one was supposed to be made a slave. Slavery was voluntary if someone could not pay their debts. They were slaves until their debt was paid or they served 6 years or until the Day of Jubilee. Slavery, like that practiced with blacks was actually condemned. The Old Testament considers the kidnapping, buying and selling of people.

My argument is simple, the bible contains many rules next to the commandments, but none of them say no to slavery (wearing cloth of two fabrics is bad though).

On top of that, there is a whole guide on how to treat slaves. What you can and can't do. Those contradict the notion "slaves are not ok".
