#11. Bringing Up Slavery

rootsIf you are not a Black Person then you cannot possibly imagine what it feels like to know that your ancestors were snatched from their homeland, shipped overseas to another continent in chains like cattle and forced to work long hard hours year round with no pay, no days off, and no civil rights. That’s why Black People will go out of their way to remind you of this every chance they get.

Black People have a very long memory and have absolutely no qualms about bringing up the topic of slavery when it may benefit them (and even when it may not… especially when it may not).

Every problem that exists within the Black Community can be traced back to slavery (aka “racism”). Despite the fact that slavery ended over 140 years ago, many Black People can still feel what it was like to be a slave and believe that Caucasian People owe them something for the atrocities carried out by their ancestors (at least Native Americans got casinos, didn’t they?)

Despite the fact that nearly every Caucasian Person alive has never legally owned a slave before, Black People know in their hearts that, if slavery were brought back, Caucasian People would rejoice in the streets and would throw a huge “Slavery’s Back!” party complete with free booze, confetti and Macy’s Day Parade floats.

The only way for Black People to make sure that this never ever happens is to insure that Caucasian People feel guilty about slavery at all times  and to never, ever let them for get it.

  1. And Shepherds we shall be

    For thee, my Lord, for thee.

    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand

    Our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands.

    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee

    And teeming with souls shall it ever be.

    In Nomeni Patri Et Fili Spiritus Sancti.”

  2. this is the most uneducated thing i have ever read

  3. “Despite the fact that slavery ended over 140 years ago, ”

    I forgot that after slavery was abolished everyone went on to their happy ways and everything was A-OK…

  4. I will not argue that in the past Black people were not absolutely discriminated against however using that argument now is just a crutch. I am not saying that there is no racism there is and will always be. It is worth stating that some black people are racist as well. There are few areas left in America where black people will be openly discriminated against however go to any major city and there are multiple places that white people very well may be attacked by blacks just for being there. Bottom line is we as Americans have adopted racism as a policy i.e. Affirmative Action: The choosing of one person over another solely based on race. The fact that black people are almost never charged with hate crimes against whites. Is this because it is rare? No, research it! It is just politically incorrect. These types of issues may be designed to stop racism but they only further it on both sides. If we truly want to work towards curbing racism we need to stop using racism to form law and policy on both sides. I watched Rodney King and then I watched a group of black people pull a white track driver out of his truck and beat him with bricks in the LA riots was this not a hate crime. Equal Rights?? Are we repeating the past in reverse?

  5. They act like “white people” were inherently evil, and black people were inherently victims. Several points to make:

    (1) It was mostly west Europeans – French, English, Belgians, Dutch etc – who contributed to the trans Atlantic slave trade. But ALL white people are blamed for it, even though many European races, such as the Scandinavians, were not involved. This is racism against white people.
    (2) The reason Sub-Saharan African was vulnerable to colonial victimisation several centuries ago, was because Arabs had been plundering and enslaving much of the continent for a millennium before hand. It’s a part of Islam that you must conquer the lands of non-believers and if they don’t convert, enslave, rape or kill them. So sub-Saharan Africa was already drastically weakened and ripe for plundering because it had already been under sustained attack by muslims for 10 centuries – not white people.
    (3) talking of Muslims, several centuries ago 1,000,000 French and Spanish people were captured and enslaved by Arabs from North Africa (the Barbary Coast, where the term “barbarian” comes from). So white people were victims themselves, and the prime evil race are the Muslims. But we never go on about it.
    (4) Some Iraqi sheiks still keep black slaves to this day.
    (5) talking of white people being enslaved, Irish people were systematically repressed and abused by the English, who considered them to be utter savages, since the beginning of history. The Irish, who had been stereotyped for many centuries exactly the same as black people were, were enslaved just as much as Africans in the USA. But no one talks about that – and no one cares because Irish people look the same as their Anglo neighbours – ie white people. They therefore can’t count as true slaves.
    (6) today, pygmy races in Africa are routinely enslaved and raped by their conventionally-sized black neighbours. If they avoid slavery, their are general taken advantage of and discriminated.
    (7) many Jews were involved in the trans-Atlantic slave trade.
    (8) The first owner of black slaves in the USA was a black man.
    (9) slavery has existed throughout the world
    (10) There are more slaves alive today at this point in time than the amount of black slaves shipped to the Americas over the who periods of the trans-Atlantic slave trade.

    My point – slavery is not a white institution and there is nothing about black people that makes them particularly likely to be slaves. Many, many white people were slaves throughout history, and many black people had owned slaves. Slavery is not a racial institution, it was simply a case of medieval barbarians taking advantage of whomever they could. It’s racist to keep making all white people feel responsible and all black people feel like victims. And if anyone deserves to have feel racial guilt, it’s Muslims, who are culturally compelled to conquer and plunder the lands of non-believers.

    I would also emphasize point the point Ann makes that slavery was not invented in America because:
    1. The Roman empire enslaved white Europeans (barbarians) in Rome for a thousand years along with people from every other area they conquered.
    2. The Ancient Egyptians had slaves – Jews.
    3. The Ancient Greeks had slaves.
    So as bad as we find slavery to be today, up until the middle 1800’s it was considered normal. Everyone did it. So blacks should stop using the past against whites living today.

    In addition I say this to any black readers who happen by::
    1. I am not responsible for the sins of my ancestors or people with my skin color who lived 150 years ago.
    2. White society paid dearly for the sins of slavery. Read about the carnage and death of the civil war especially how many northeners died and how much was spent. Then tell me that we owe reparations.
    3. White priviledge is nonsense. If all blacks would take ownership of their own actions, the way they dress, the way they think and their priorities in life then they would get more respect and more of what they want. Yes there is racism but all can’t be blamed on that.
    4. Blacks living TODAY are BETTER OFF in American than if they had been born in Central or West Africa where most slaves came from. If you don’t believe me, investigate conditions in those areas. The slaves in American were not better off, but they are dust as are the plantation owners. You all living today are better off so please stop acting like you’re forced to live here now.
    5. Stop using statistics or shootings of unarmed black men (happens to whites too, google it) as proof of oppression and racism. Blacks commit more crimes partly (I belive) because of their attitudes and mentality. Own it and fix it.
    6. The worst enemy of blacks as a group is not white people. It is the black mentality, thinking that you must show as much “blackness” and difference from whites as possible. That you’re the victim of the white man, that he owes you, that you should not care what whites think or obey any law made by whites and that whatever you do to whites, they deserve it.
    P.S. I speak from experience. My neighborhood used to be 100% white here in Broward County Florida. Now in the span of 15 years its around 40% black. Most of the folks I see driving cars are blacks. I have white priviledge many of them drive new looking BMWs and Mercedes. F*&cK my white priviledge. got me nowhere. I think blacks around the country must all be getting on facebook and saying “hey y’all, lets move to broward”. Its really a flood and from what I’ve seen, I want to move. Never understood why whites always complained about blacks. Now I know why.

    I say all this to show that I don’t make stuff up. I simply am telling what I have seen, heard and read.
