    The overwhelming majority of slaves brought from Africa were not abducted but sold by Africans for guns and manufactured goods.
    Africans sold their own people. Why is their so much hate for the buyer but not even a mention of wrongdoing for people who would sell humans for material items?

    If you are speaking for the thread from here in 2004 regarding the Trans Atlantic slave trade..I have read it.
    It covers the period of time and triangle method of slave trading. But it doesnt cover the fact that 2 groups of people were involved in the slave trade. One group gets hated for 400 years while the other group is celebrated in dress and art while maintaining an equal part in the same act in which the other group is vilified.

    Its not the same thread. One is about information...one is about emotion.

    workingwhiteman, if you were to set up a poll asking the whole of the destee membership this question:


    Q: How many of you have read the great Dr. Chancellor William's book, "The Destruction of Black Civilization: Great Issues of a Race From 4500 BC to 2000 AD"--just this one book--then you would realize that your charge that *nobody talks about African culpability/collusion in the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade* is an erroneous assumption from you.


    We KNOW this.


    If you did some lightweight digging around you would learn that Blacks consider this book a 'classic'. Dr. William's research is MUST READ, in-depth research for Blacks interested in this subject (African culpability/collusion) for *long decades*.


    Truth is, Dr. Williams spares no tribe/nation from exposure (good, bad, and indifferent); yet, Dr. Williams' book is 'treasured' by us Blacks interested in the TRUTH long hidden from us about slavery.


    You assume, and you assume wrong in your OP.


    Edit to add:


    As for *missing* discussions on this matter *in here* (at Destee):


    Just because there aren't many 'formal' threads discussing this issue that you want to talk about now, DOESN'T MEAN that there is 'no record at all' of any discussions on this topic. Dr. William's books, Dr. Diop's books, Dr. James' books, Dr. Wilson's books, youtube vids, scholarly journal links--a true plethora of sources gets provided to all kinds of destee members nearly 'automatically' as our dialogues with each other tends to drift *off-topic* (and occasionally includes dialogues about this very issue)--yet will nonetheless include demands for sources, anyway.


    What I'm saying is every now and then, *someone*--most times, someone Black, but whites too--they will come in and make it plain that they don't believe that we are aware of African culpability/collusion in the T-Atl slave trade. Every now and then.

    One Love, and PEACE

    It is sad that the one representative of the White race, makes a poor example of the race. The White people I have know, in my life were niether dumb or stupid, and before any of them would say something stupid on a discussion board of another race they would research to see if that issue had been discussed before.

    Whites were also enslaved and Black folks have the wisdom and dignity not to say stupid crap like why did White people put thier own folks into slavery and ship them to the US;

    Your point is well taken Fieldpea, and I fully understand why you posted to workingwhiteman... But what is problematic for me, is that someone blasted after I did what you have done. Is this a double standard or what is this?

    sigh...more white washed propaganda...
    why are u here? really? your contribution is below 0.....

    Chancellor Williams, in his classic work, The Destruction of Black Civilization, explains that after the over land passage of African trade had been cut off at the Nile Delta by the White Arabs in about 1675 B.C. (the Hyksos), the Egyptian/African economy was thrown into a recession. There is even indication of "pre-historic" aggression upon Africa by White nomadic tribes (the Palermo Stone). As recession set in the African Government began selling African prisoners of war and criminals on death row to the White Arabs. This culminated as an unfortunate trade, in that, when the White Arabs attacked, they had the benefit of the knowledge and strength of Africans on their side, as their slaves. This is a significantly different picture than the propaganda that we sold our immediate family members into slavery to the Whites.

    The really undermentioned part of slavery is how Whites sold Whites.

    Regarding why are buyers worse than sellers? In violent trade, there's more to the sale than complicity.

    An example, if A, B and C are people, where A and B are Africans and C is a European. C can devastate A and B then offer A and B protection from each other by selling guns to both sides at the cost of B or A's people, respectively. In other words, in violent trade, the buyer invents the market by inventing and exacerbating the conflict.

    Much like how after 9/11, the conflict between America and Afghanistan were entirely invented by American elite.

    White people receive the bad wrap because White people were the bad people. Much like the American elite is more to blame for the Americo-Afghani War than either your typical "American" or your typical Afghani. No one is saying neither typical American nor typical Afghani participated in the war; people are saying that it's the American elite who created the War as we know it.

    It is no secret about white slavery. I brought it up here on this board before. The aspect of white slavery was minimized here because it covered a shorter time period.
    Their is no dignity as you suggest in minimizing that.

    I dont understand why I am a bad representer of my race for posing an honest question as to the emotions felt about a factual part of history.
