    Hello family
    There is something that has been on my mind for sometime now and it is something that has had such an impact on all our lives for hundreds of years
    the question is....
    IF OUR PEOPLE WERE NEVER SOLD INTO SLAVERY, HOW DO YOU FEEL OUR LIVES IN 2006 WOULD BE DIFFERENT THAN WHAT THEY ARE NOW?

    I just relish at this idea, I know the reality of this can never come to pass yet I think it is something to think about.

    Sweettee, peace

    Sister SweetTee ... Peace and Blessings ... :love:

    This is a good question to ponder, but unfortunately, it will take someone wiser than myself, to provide an answer for you. I can't imagine what would have been if ...

    I tend not to spend lots of time wondering such things, as it takes away from working on the reality of what is. This isn't to suggest that you or anyone shouldn't ponder such. I'm just speaking for myself.

    Like you, i'll be looking forward to the responses of others.

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:

    Study West Afrikan history and the answer is there. Before 1942. Afrikan Kingdoms were expanding while others were dying away or being killed off. Islam was spreading throughout "Black Afrika" as was Christianity in Ethiopia and the southern Sudan (Nubia).

    According to historian J.A. Rogers Black "Moors" were engaged in trading and enslaving white people all throughout southern europe. Before the transatlantic trade.

    So, your guess is as good as mine or anyone else's.

    I know that this is pretty far fetched but I have always wondered about a world with No slavery!!!
    I guess this is one of those "in a perfect world questions"
    To me the idea of this represents limitless opportunities.
    Things happen as they must I suppose
    I guess I should not get so carried away with what if's
    but this particular what if just keeps rolling over.
    I suppose it is a waste of time to ponder over such things for it is useless at this point.

    any way thank you Destee & omowalejabali for your input

    what if.......I can't even start and i never looked at it from this mirror
    because of the on going poverty we facing today , my what if is to
    seek some kind of solution to what is happening now and from the
    year past struggle of slavery.

    I don't believe this can be answered correctly because we are in today
    and the reality is what it is we face .

    deep pounder of what if u have sis

    $$RICH$$ I Think this one is a little too deep to ponder over
    and it is true we need to deal with the situations at hand with our people
    Thanks for your insight
