Why do we not have plantations around anymore?
Because we are moral ubermensch or because we now have technology that dwarfs the output of human labor? 
It's the latter. If the world was starving and we didn't have the technology, plantations would become a retro hit real fast.

They would be popular, too, as long as they were run by non-whites, and whites supplied the labor.

Of course we would call it something different, then people would think they were in actuality not plantations at all.

Moralistic reasons aside, they are usually geared towards global capitalist economies at the expense of the local people and their environment.
