Swing and a miss. Anyone needs a license to drive a car? Why make them get a license? Doesn't that make you a racist?Yes providing a chauffeur driven limousine to transport them around got prohibitively expensive.
Glad to see that you are enjoying the actual quotes of Thomas Jefferson and not some lie by you.
The slavers were losers. Who cares what they think.Going out on a limb here but....I bet this just pisses some of you off...????
Beliefs have prompted some members of the human race to commit some vicious acts against humanity. Beliefs have also prompted people to do stupid and ignorant things. Take the Covid-19 vaccine shot for example although over seven hundred thousand have died from the virus and getting the Covid-19 vaccine shot will reduce your chances of dying from the virus from 100 percent to 1.3 percent. What is shocking to me is the parents with beliefs who are willing to risk their children's lives on their beliefs.The slavers were losers. Who cares what they think.
Very true, two wrongs never make a right. When two people are involved in the slave trade market with one of them white and the other black and just blaming the white person and completely ignoring the role of the black individual is not right either.This is something that the white slavers pointed to to justify their being in the slave trade and owning slaves...
What's that old saying? Ah yes! Two wrongs do not make a right!
JB my point being the finger should be pointed at all involved in the slave trade.Regardless of what some blacks did in Africa.....the fact remains.....this country was built on the backs of those slaves.....white folks became rich from owning human beings.......we held blacks down for years........we still do.......the GOPQ are actively trying to take black voting rights away as we speak......we still have a serious problem in this country......putting it in a museum will not suffice.
I understand your point.....the slave trade was terrible for all...but....in this country......blacks far outnumbered any other race or group and their treatment far worse even after their supposed freedom. They still suffer at the hands of white people.....so do other minorities but black treatment over the years should not be ignored or put in a museum.........we have been brainwashing our kids for too long.JB my point being the finger should be pointed at all involved in the slave trade.
Blacks we’re not the only ones enslaved. A lot of people think they were.
What about the Chinese who replaced the Blacks on the Plantations?
What about the indentured White Irish who endured 4-10 years of Slave conditions at the hands of American Colonist.
What caused the shift from indentured servant to African slaves?
“As demands for labor grew, so did the cost of indentured servants. Many landowners also felt threatened by newly freed servants demand for land. ... Landowners turned to African slaves as a more profitable and ever-renewable source of labor and the shift from indentured servants to racial slavery had begun.”
People have a tendency to suddenly suffer from convenience amnesia. All history needs to be preserved so it can be constantly reviewed to prevent hopefully the same thing happening again.I understand your point.....the slave trade was terrible for all...but....in this country......blacks far outnumbered any other race or group and their treatment far worse even after their supposed freedom.

Good discussion. Again....I understand your point and agree....history should be reviewed and....I would add....truthfully told to our kids in our schools....fact is.....we have lied about our history throughout the years.......the all men are created equal stuff is white man propaganda......we have mistreated many people.....particulary the black people.......many on the right want to continue the practice to remain in power.People have a tendency to suddenly suffer from convenience amnesia.

History also needs to be complete and not be sanitized by leaving out players and participating players In the historical accounting.
Read this and I think you will be surprised to learn that Brazil has always been a key player in the American History of Slavery.
Latest information put the number of Haitian fleeing out of Brazil through Columbia to get to the US at 20,000 trying to move on to Panama.
For many Haitian migrants, the dangerous journey from their troubled home country to the United States spans a decade and thousands of miles through Latin America.www.npr.org
