Let me ask you something. I am guessing you have ancestors who enslaved people and did harm to others as well, are YOU ashamed of that? or do you just expect whites to be ashamed of what their ancestors did>

What is like to know is what was running through the minds of the "slave owners" who taught them to treat others like this? They say that America was founded by Christians... Did they forget " do to others as you would want them to do to you"? I'm white and I know who I am and I know I would have helped them escape this BS.

is not new. Unfortunately, Africans sold their own Brothers and Sisters into bondage. That is the truth. It is not a one sided argument. The African East African slave trade was well established by African kings and Arab way before the "White Man" ever got there. No ones hands are clean. Not the buyers, sellers, or bankers. Only Christ can heal the hearts of this nation..... not that it was ever clean, but America can learn a thing or two from Jesus. LOVE COVERS A MULTITUDE OF SINS. (The Bible)

Its a shame that we humans have committed such atrocities. Before "Whites" ever even stepped on African soil slavery was well in place. Arab traders not only bought "Black People" from African but they also held many "White people" as slaves. At one point in time so many "White Women" flooded the Arab market that it was stopped in order to seise inflation. Its a shame that "White People" not only bought but treated Africans in such a terrible way for so many years. But the slave trade in Africa

I'm not saying we should enslave them. I'm saying it's unjust only their past gets reminded of when other tragic pasts do not.

Very true. Blacks speak an ancient African language called English which Whites imitated. And their African manufacturers design and make their African clothes. We know for example, that jeans originated with West African slaves. And we all know that Whites stole the Black culture of space technology, Internet, car manufacturing etc.
Godot433
Very true. To get to the cutting edge of technology you need to go to Detroit, the Bronx, the fag end part of New Orleans, Haiti etc. These people have a glorious history. They can speak Hebrew, Ancient Egyptian, Olmec as well as English which as we know is an African language.
Godot433
Very true. And the Africans cannot even feed themselves.
Godot433
" The most important aspect of that trade was that Muslims were selling goods to the African kingdoms and the African kingdoms were paying with their own people. No violence was necessary to obtain those slaves. Contrary to legends, novels and Hollywood movies, the white traders did not need to savagely kill entire tribes in order to exact their tribute in slaves. All they needed to do is bring goods that appealed to the kings of those tribes. The kings would gladly sell their own subjects"
