SLAVERY~The Old Testament Says... And he that stealeth a man, and selleth him, or if he be found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death. EXODUS 21:16. In the past and when I was younger, I was so used to always hearing that many White people justified slavery by saying that Africans sold Africans, and it is as if to say, that they came by the slave system second hand. Nevertheless, the Old Testament makes it plain, to me, that even if someone comes by a person forced and sold into slavery, they are just as guilty. Today though, America seems to only believe they have to apologize.
