how is sharecropping similar to slavery?

Well, it's not slavery but it's pretty close. Basically the sharecropper was a tenant farmer who gave a share of the crops raised to the landlord instead of rent.
a tenant farmer especially in the southern United States who is provided with credit for seed, tools, living quarters, and food, who works the land, and who receives an agreed share of the value of the crop minus charges.
