Slavery has been a part of human civilization for as long as there have been humans on this planet. In every country, in every era, people with power have enslaved the weakest and most vulnerable members of the race.
All African nations, all Asian nations, all European nations and all North and South American Indian nations practiced slavery.
Even today, slavery is still rampant in the form of a horrifically evil child sex slave industry, which, unfortunately, is booming thanks to its great profitability. [Report: Almost 46 million people trapped in slavery…]*
So, in short, slavery has always existed and everyone went along with it and accepted it as just a way of life.
Oh, except for white European and North American men. They were the only people in the history of the world to realize that slavery is a horrible, morally-reprehensible condition and they were the only people in the history of the world to try to put a stop to it.
Just a good point to remember the next time some dummy tries to argue about slavery and racism and reparations and other ridiculous nonsense. They might not realize that slavery has nothing to do with race, as people of all races have been enslaved. The word slavery itself comes from the word Slavs, who are the white eastern European people who were the world’s first slaves.
They also might not realize that white people didn’t go to Africa and kidnap black people and make them slaves.
White people went to Africa and bought slaves from slave-owning black warlords. And then they freed them.
As the comic Jarrod Carmichael said (I’m paraphrasing here):
“Thank God for slavery. If it weren’t for slavery I’d be living in Africa right now! Africa! Instead I have my own HBO stand up comedy special!”
You see, Jarrod understands that living in America is about a million times better than living in most parts of Africa. African-Americans are the richest black people on the planet, even though they are the “poorest” Americans.
Face it, if you were about to give birth to a black child which country would you want that child born in? Would you risk him being born in some African country where he might end up a child soldier in some evil Islamic death cult?
No, if you had a choice, you would have that child born in Alabama or Mississippi, because those states are enlightened havens of liberalism compared to much of the rest of the world.
So quit yer whining.
P.S. Below is a great video by Stefan Molyneux if you want all the facts.
*Yeah, not a lot of white people are keeping slaves these days. Maybe it’s time to shift the blame onto those who deserve it.
