    Who Was Responsible For The Slave Trade???

    This seems to be a good question. But this question is aimed as a diversion tactic away from the real atrocities of slavery, which for African descendants in the New world IS the relevant topic.

    Sure there is evidence that some corrupt African leaders were complicit in the slave trade.
    But the real question which is seldom if ever addressed or acknowledged is:

    Who was responsible for the treatment of the slaves?!!

    Most Europeans, whose countries were part of the slave trade, are trying to sidestep this issue or deflecting blame by diverting the topic to the fact that they were not the only ones involved in the slave trade.

    Fine.

    But what does that have to with the way they mistreated and abused the slaves?

    Is it the Africans' fault that the Europeans raped their slave women?
    Is it the Africans' fault that the Europeans tortured their slaves?
    Is it the Africans' fault that the Europeans treated their slaves worse than animals?

    It's like someone blaming 7 Eleven for his/her smoking habit, or their alcohol habit.
    Or a husband blaming his wife's parents for him beating her.

    How about that other argument that Africans also had slavery?

    True, but there is no African Kingdom in history that had an entire economy totally based on slave labor as was the case in colonies in the New World and in the American South! In Africa slavery was used as a means to pay a debt. The debtor was generally free to go after the debt was paid and he wasn't whipped, beaten, dehumanized or raped as was the case in European colonies and the American South.

    And then there is the argument that the Europeans did the slaves a favour by "rescuing" them from living in the jungle or in trees, thereby revealing their willful ignorance about Africa in general.

    Let's look at what those "jungles" looked like during the time of slavery:

    These are all areas that we know the largest part of slaves came from.

    Kumasi - The Asante Kingdom's City(Ghana):

    Benin :

    Loango(Congo):
    [​IMG]

    As you can see these were all well organized and structured cities.

    The point is don't waste your time arguing the wrong debate which is not relevant to the treatment of slaves, from which scars are still present in some of their descendants.

    The last diversionary tactic is. Well this was so long ago, how long are you going to keep bringing all this up?

    Well I don't know...uhm how long should I remember the American Revolution? How long should I remember the Napoleonic wars? How long should I remember Columbus, who incidentally was totally of course, whereby we now have two peoples we call Indians...

    (HOW THE HISTORICAL "ARAB MOORS" CAUSED THE ENTIRE BLACK RACE TO FALL)



    2a. Jews: Almost 40% of all Jewish householders in the United States owned one slave or more. In the South, which had a much higher ratio of slave ownership than the North, only 5% of white people owned slaves.

    "...White Europeans would have ended the morally corrupt practice of slavery in North America much sooner if it weren’t for powerful Jewish businessmen lobbying to keep their profitable industry alive. As Rabbi and historian, Bertram Korn said, “many Southern Jews believed slavery to be indispensable to their happiness and security. “The road to social and economic advancement and acceptance [for the Jews] was made easier by the institution of slavery...”

    Whites Owning Black Slaves in USA: Hoax

    Here is a snippet:

    [​IMG]

    "...Lee Friedman: The bulk of the slave trade in Brazil, where most of the slaves went, was in the hands of Jewish settlers.

    Wilfred Samuels: The Jews of Barbados made a good deal of money by buying and renting out of black slaves.

    Seymour Liebman: The ships were not only owned by Jews, but were mainly manned by Jewish crews and sailed under the command of Jewish captains.

    Moshe Kahan: Between 1653 and 1658 Jewish Marrano merchants were in control of the Spanish and Portuguese trade, were very interested in the Dutch East and West Indian companies, were heavily involved in shipping and most importantly had at their disposal large amounts of capital..."

    There are a lot of issues with the OP.


    The OP compares Africans selling Africans to 7/11 selling cigarettes.

    I also believe that the selling or trading of slaves by their own people is no where near as widely known as the treatment of those people once they were enslaved.


    Furthermore slaves that were shipped from Africa were enslaved by their own people. If a comparison to cigerettes is necassary dont blame the end line smoker for the growing, harvesting, rolling and packaging of cigarettes. You can smoke cigarettes if there is none to smoke.

    The African country of Maurtinia finally established criminal laws outlawing slavery in 2007.



    The last country on earth to establish such law.

    The percentage of Jews who bought ships, held auctions and maintained plantations to enslave MY people is larger than any African transaction and eye got proof and documentation over verbal platitudes....

    Wrong... Black African slaves are still kept and treated badly by Arab Muslims.

    I don't even know what a platitude is.

    But I can tell ya what....the whole talk about percentages and who was enslaved more is just stupid.


    Black slavery is the only slavery taught about in schools. And is commonly used as a crutch for lack of success today.

    Africans still enslave Africans today....right now.

    And have had a history of it for hundreds and hundreds of years.

    Africans in Northern Africa enslaved Europeons.

    That..........Is what no one talks about.


    Google slavery in Africa... Their is a ton....a **** ton of articles and pictures.

    Where was I wrong in the post you quoted.


    I wasn't. You read something that wasn't there.
