How many times have you heard that slavery was “America’s original sin”? I’m not quite sure what that means, but I think the idea is that slavery was a uniquely horrible thing that defines the United States and will stain whites forever. It’s one of the few things Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Barack Obama agree on. There are books about it. Here’s a college course at UC Davis called “Slavery: America’s Original Sin: Part 1.”

The fact is, there has been slavery in every period of history, and just about everywhere. The Greeks and Romans had it, the ancient Egyptians had it, it’s all over the Bible, the Chinese and the pre-Columbian Indians had it, the Maoris in New Zealand had it, and the Muslims had it in spades. But I have never, ever heard of slavery being anyone else’s “original sin.”

About the only societies that never had slaves were primitive hunter-gatherers. As soon as people have some kind of formal social organization, they start taking slaves.

You’ve heard about slavery and mass human sacrifices of Central and South American Indians, but North American Indians were enslaving each other long before the white man showed up.

Tlingit and Haida Indians, who lived in the Pacific Northwest, went raiding for slaves as far South as California. About one quarter of the population were slaves, and the children of slaves were slaves. During potlatches, or huge ceremonial feasts, the Tlingit would sometimes burn property and kill slaves, just to show how rich they were. What’s a couple of slaves to a guy who lives in a house like this?

When we bought Alaska from the Russians in 1867, Indians were furious when we told them they had to give up their slaves. The Tlingit carved this image of Abraham Lincoln, the emancipator, to try to shame the government into compensating them for slaves.

What were called the Five Civilized Tribes of the American Southeast happily bought black slaves. In 1860, there were 21,000 Cherokee, and they owned 4,000 slaves. And that was just the Cherokee. Many took their slaves with them when they were forced to move Wes t.

Free blacks in the South owned slaves. The fact of having been slaves didn’t stop them from wanting to be slave masters themselves. In 1840, in South Carolina alone, there were 454 free blacks who owned a total of 2,357 slaves. Only about 20 percent of Southern households had even one slave, but 75 percent of the free-black households in South Carolina owned slaves.

Don’t believe me? It’s all in this book by the expert on the subject, Larry Koger of the University of South Carolina. And he demolishes the idea that most blacks bought slaves only to get family members out of slavery. Like whites, some were kind masters and some were mean, but, for the most part, they owned slaves for exactly the same reasons whites did.

There’s a whole book about this black guy, Andrew Durnford.

He had a plantation of 672 acres along the Mississippi in Louisiana, and close to 100 slaves. Another black slave owner in Louisiana, P.C. Richards, owned 152 slaves. Black slaveowners avidly supported the Confederacy. There are no accurate estimates of the number of slaves held by free blacks at the time of the Civil War, but they would have been tens of thousands.

If slavery is somebody’s Original Sin, it’s sure not ours. Take a look at this map of the slave trade, beginning in 1500.

[Source: SlaveVoyages.com, click to enlarge]

The thicknesses of the lines represent numbers of slaves. What became the United States imported just 400,000 slaves—about 3 percent of all the slaves who crossed the Atlantic. Look at all the slaves who went to Brazil and to the Caribbean Islands. They needed millions because, unlike American slaveowners who raised slave families, they bought grown men and worked them to death. And let us not forget, virtually every slave on this map was caught by blacks or Arabs.

And look at all the slaves who ended up in North Africa and the Middle East.

That’s millions of them going to Muslim countries at exactly the same time slaves were crossing the Atlantic. And Arabs had been taking black slaves out of Africa, across the Sahara, for 900 years before America was even discovered—and a forced march across the desert was a lot worse than crossing the Atlantic. In this article about Africa’s first slavers—the Arabs—historian Paul Lovejoy estimates that over the centuries, Muslims took about 14 million blacks out of Africa [Recalling Africa’s harrowing tale of its first slavers – The Arabs – as UK Slave Trade Abolition is commemorated, March 27, 2018]. That is more than the 12 million who went to the New World.

And you might ask, where are the descendants of all those Middle Eastern slaves? America has millions of slave descendants. Why don’t you see lots of blacks in Saudi Arabia or Syria or Iraq? Arabs castrated black slaves so they wouldn’t have descendants.

Muslims were even more enthusiastic about enslaving white people. Christian Slaves, Muslim Masters, by Prof. Robert C. Davis is the best book on the subject. Remember the Barbary Pirates of North Africa? Between 1530 and 1780 they caught and enslaved more than a million white, European Christians. During the 16th and 17th centuries, Arabs took more white slaves south across the Mediterranean than there were blacks shipped across the Atlantic.

Mostly, Muslim pirates captured European ships and stole their crews. In just three years, from 1606 to 1609, the British navy admitted it had lost 466 British merchant ships to North African pirates [Counting European Slaves on the Barbary Coast Past & Present, August 2001]. Four hundred sixty-six ships in just three years. Arabs took American slaves. Between 1785 and 1793 Algerians captured 13 American ships in the Mediterranean and enslaved the crews. This is a 1804 battle between Arab pirates and the USS Enterprise.

It was only in 1815, after two wars, that the United States was finally free of the Barbary pirates.

Muslim pirates also organized huge, amphibious slave-catching assaults that practically depopulated the Italian coast. In 1544, Algerian raiders took 7,000 slaves in the Bay of Naples in a single raid. This drove the price of slaves so low it was said you could “swap a Christian for an onion.”

After a 1566 raid on Granada in Spain netted 4,000 men women, and children, it was said to be “raining Christians in Algiers.” Women were easier to catch than men, and were prized as sex slaves, so some coastal areas lost their entire child-bearing populations. One raid as far away as Iceland brought back 400 white slaves.

Prof. Davis notes that the trade in black Africans was strictly business, but Muslims had a jihad-like enthusiasm for stealing Christians. It was revenge for the Crusades and for the reconquest of Spain from the Arabs in 1492. When Muslim corsairs raided Europe, they made a point of desecrating churches and stealing church bells. The metal was valuable but stealing church bells silenced the voice of Christianity.

It was a tradition to parade newly captured Europeans through the streets so people could jeer at them, while children threw garbage at them. At the slave market, both men and women were stripped naked to evaluate their sexual value. In the North African capitals—Tunis, Algiers, Tripoli—there was a big demand for homosexual sex-slaves. Other Europeans were worked to death on farms or building projects.

Prof. Davis writes that unlike in North America, there were no limits on cruelty: “There was no countervailing force to protect the slave from his master’s violence: no local anti-cruelty laws, no benign public opinion, and rarely any effective pressure from foreign states.” Slaves were not just property, they were infidels, and deserved whatever suffering a master meted out.

For a man, there was a fate even worse than being a sex slave. Hundreds of thousands became galley slaves, often on slave-catching pirate ships. They were chained to their oars 24 hours a day, and could move only to the hole where the oar went through the hull—so they could relieve themselves. If the men were rowing, they fouled themselves. Galley slaves lived in a horrible stench, ate rotten food, were whipped by slave drivers and tormented by rats and lice. They could not lie down and had to sleep at their oars. Many never left their ships, even in port. Their job was to row until they died, and to be tossed overboard at the first sign of weakness.

Muslims have taken slaves for as long as there have been Muslims, which is about 1,400 years.

Mohammed himself was an enthusiastic slave trader. Muslims still take black slaves. As this article points out, Libya still has slave markets, Mauritanian Arabs take black slaves, and there is still slavery in Niger, Mali, Chad and Sudan[Libya’s slave markets are a reminder that the exploitation of Africans never went away, by Martin Plaut, New Statesman, February 21, 2018].

And, of course, it was white people who abolished slavery, both in their own countries and, except for a few stubborn holdouts, the whole world. Africans, just like the Tlingit Indians, screamed about all the wealth we made them give up.

But slavery’s still our “original sin.” As Time magazine wrote just this month about slavery “Europeans and their colonial “descendants” in the United States engineered the most complete and enduring dehumanization of a people in history.”[Facing America’s History of Racism Requires Facing the Origins of ‘Race’ as a Concept, by Andrew Curran, July 10, 2020]

What a small minority of Americans did for 246 years—and in a relatively mild form—is worse than anything that was ever done anywhere by anyone.

That, ladies and gentlemen, is the power of white privilege. I hope you are enjoying it.

    Bravo.

    Yeah, turning the people who were the first to forbid slavery (Europeans) into the people most responsible for slavery in the world ever, is a very good example of the flips and reversals that the sophist parasites are so good at.

    And then suddenly all your institutions are taken over, your people dying out, your civilization collapsing.

    They are, however, as incompetent as they are psychopathic. Once the survivors roll the Great Reset back, and start undoing its foundation that was accumulated layer by layer over the last decades, two things need to happen:

    1) Very serious punishment for everyone who participated in the civilizational sabotage, ethnic cleansing, massacre encouragement, and pharma genocide
    2) Very serious civilizational safeguards, to ensure there is no repeat of this in the foreseeable future

    Concerning punishment, a humble suggestion is to give to foreign countries those who screwed with them. Those planned, financed, and benefited from for example pharma experiments on the population of Kenya–get sent to Kenya. Those who destroyed Libya–get sent to Libya. Those who tried to destroy Syria–get sent to Syria. Those who fed off suffering in Bangladesh, or Haiti, or Tanzania–get sent there. Those who financed Islamist militants in Myanmar get sent to Myanmar. Those who made careers on the backs of the people of Iran and Cuba–go to Iran and Cuba. And so on.

    And those whose crimes affect their host societies most–either do some honest toil in labor camps, or participate in the day of the noose. Depending on the magnitude of the crime against humanity.

    If these leftard monkeys were serious about ending slavery, they should concentrate on wiping it out in these places, like the Colonial Europeans did in the past. But what they are interested is genocidal hatred for Western Civilization and the White Race. Simple as that. Any excuse to fuel their disgusting cheap hatred.

  4. Jared, many thanks for the article. Great resources to share with others!

    Just to add a bit: modern slavery (including debt bondage) in the commercial fishing industry goes on almost unchecked…the next time a black Amerikun buys seafood in the market or in a restaurant remind them that they owe reparations to those helpless people held onboard fishing vessels.

    That would be white supremacy at its most literal.

  6. This appears to be a notable example of an Inconvenient Truth. It seems someone or other is endeavoring to humiliate a certain group of people into cowering, hoisting the white flag, and rolling over and playing dead. Who could be so cunning, devious, and have the means to push such propaganda? Things that make you go hmmm!

  9. You mentioned the Berbers (Barbary Coast pirates, etc.) but let’s not forget their allies the Moors. The same Moors that MOROCCO is named for, and the same “Moors” that tried to attack on some Massachusettes interstate I-95 the cops that stopped them from going to their “training” in Maine…right. Training to help BLM, Black Hebrew Israelites, NAFC idiots, and other black supremacists murder all non-woke whites in this country with the “aid” of the “Biden Administration” and the woke self-hating whites in their gated communities, and with the aid of that racist “critical race theory” and of course, Commie Kammy, Antifa, and the rest of the social justice hypocrites.

    I hope one of these days you will also write about the truth of white slavery in this country under the guise of “indentured servants” and based onb Mike Hoffman’s “They Were White and They Were Slaves”…yes, many whites from England, Scotland, Ireland and especially the Scots-Irish were slaves as well as indentured (I am descended from one of those likely indentured). Also former Virginia Senator Jim Webb, who wrote “Born Fighting” about Scots-Irish indentures (and the 40 acres and a mule Headright Rule), is a good source.

  10. Another interesting point not mentioned in the article, regarding slavery from Africa into Brazil:

    There is a dog breed created in Brazil called the “Fila Brasiliera,” and why was it bred? TO HUNT RUNAWAY AFRICAN SLAVES! It is the ONLY dog breed that was bred to hunt humans! And it is a very fierce breed, even today…I was almost attacked for no reason by this breed, a dog owned by a neighbor….all because I tried to pet it!

  11. I can predict how the usual gaggle of leftist trolls from the NPC hivemind will respond to this piece:

    – It doesn’t matter about anyone else in the world. Since white Americans were not absolutely pristine pure perfect perfectionist angels about slavery in their country, that means all of them are still to blame (Gee, reality is not perfect, imagine that!).
    – The author of the primary sourced book is a “known racist” (Therefore guilt by association, and everything he says has to be wrong).
    – Morality is collective, so whites must assume responsibility and guilt as a group forever (So much for Christian morality based on individual responsibility).
    – Just by calling attention to these alternative data, that makes you automatically racist (Inconvenient real-world facts must be ignored or destroyed, lest they upset the holy leftist narrative).
    – Gaslighting such that everything said in this article, as per our our exclusive moral authority, is nonsense (And for even reading it, you are the embodiment of evil and so you must be personally canceled).
    – Believe us, we’re intellectually superior to all you white fascists out there, and our deconstruction of this article finds it to be totally worthless (Mmmm, care to share the rock-solid logic of that analysis with us?).
    – As long as there still exists even one penny’s worth of difference in the economic standing of blacks versus whites in this country, racism is still running rampant (This amounts to a kind of leftist mathematical identity: [racism = material difference between races], as well as the standard [whites = racism]).

    There’s probably something I left out, but I think I hit the usual low points that spew out of the leftist echo chamber. Anyway, it really doesn’t matter, as long as conservatives continue to react with paroxysms of paralyzed guilt each time the left screams “racist”!

    Was slavery even the real issue?

    The university/media/government complex can’t move a muscle without getting reasonable and productive citizens to hate each other.

    And like it or not blacks, whites and “others” have separate ways of doing things and even thinking about things. They are different nations scrambled together into one place. At the present time the bill is due for race-mixing, not slavery, and it’s really an expensive proposition.

    These descendants benefited from coming over to this continent because it is so obvious when you compare the difference in wealth and poverty from this continent and the other continent. Should benefits be considered sin? Would they have a better life today in that continent if their ancestors never came to this continent?

    You can only get big profits from technological innovation. Only stupid people would believe that low technology labor can create massive wealth because it has such low profitability because of the high costs of ensuring they stay healthy for work.

    Our large modern wealth came technological innovation.

    We owe modern wealth to the European inventors of industrial revolution technology and the earlier Asian inventors who created the original technology of paper books, printing press, magnetic compass, saltpeter. We also owe modern wealth to the Asians funders who provided all the funding to create and build the universities of the Ivy League, hospitals, research centers in the east side of the country.

    If there is any sin, it would the fact that many of the first millionaires like Roosevelt, Perkins, Forbes, stole lots of Asian money by peddling drugs like filthy druggies and were even worse than the Sacklers and the Perdedors.

  15. So of any single country, Brazil was the biggest importer of African slaves. Yet many white liberals think Brazil is a cool country where there is little racism. And Brazilians don’t really care because they are more concerned about crime, corruption and ongoing economic crashes.

    Among wealthy white countries, concern over the legacy of slavery has very little to do with the actual practice of slavery. It more to do with how wealthy that country is. The more wealthy a white country is, the more its upper middle class citizens feel guilty about white slavery and try to make every other white person in that country feel guilty of slavery.

    The most comical example of this is Sweden, which is deeply concerned about white racism, yet never even took slaves from other races.

    In addition to that, there was no slavery in Europe for a very long time, it remained only in the colonies of Europeans.

    As far back as you can remember, slavery has been practiced in history by all species and races particularly in Black Africa, North Africa and the Middle East.

    BUT, it was the White Caucasians who first advocated its abolition, and then finally abolished it.

    Charles Verlinden, L’esclavage dans l’Europe médiévale (2 volumes, 2000 pages)

    https://fr.abcdef.wiki/wiki/Slavery_in_medieval_Europe

    Records of long-distance Jewish slave traders date back to at least 492, when Pope Gelasius allowed Jews to import non-Christian slaves to Italy, at the behest of a Jewish friend from the Telesina Valley. By the turn of the 6th to 7th centuries, the Jews had become the main slave traders in Italy and were active in the Gallic territories. Pope Gregory the Great prohibited Jews from owning Christian slaves, lest the slaves convert to Judaism. In the 9th and 10th centuries, Jewish merchants, sometimes referred to as Radhanites, were a major force in the continent-wide slave trade. The Jews were one of the few groups able to move and trade between the Christian and Islamic worlds. Ibn Khordadbeh observed and recorded the routes of Jewish merchants in his Book of Routes and Kingdoms from Southern France to Spain, transporting (among others) female slaves, eunuch slaves, and young slave boys. He also notes that Jews buy Slavic slaves in Prague. The letters of Agobard, archbishop of Lyon (816-840), the acts of the emperor Louis the Pious, and the seventy-fifth canon of the Council of Meaux of 845 confirm the existence of a route taken by Jewish traders with Slavic slaves across the Alps to Lyon, southern France, Spain. Walenstadt’s toll records in 842-843 indicate another trade route, through Switzerland, the Septimer and Splügen passes, to Venice, and thence to North Africa. While the German rulers of the Saxon dynasties took over the enslavement (and slave trade) of the Slaves in the 10th century, Jewish merchants bought slaves from the Elbe, sending caravans to the Rhine Valley. Many of these slaves were taken to Verdun, which had close trade relations with Spain. Many would also be castrated and sold as eunuchs. The Jewish population of Crimea was a very important factor in the slave and captive trade of the Crimean Khanate (Tatars) from the 16th to the 18th century. The Jews would later become very influential in the European slave trade, reaching their peak from the 16th to the 19th century.

    British Wales and Gaelic Ireland and Scotland were among the last areas of Christian Europe to abandon their institution of slavery. Under Gaelic custom, prisoners of war were systematically taken as slaves. During the period when slavery was disappearing in most of Western Europe, it reached its peak in the British Isles: the Viking invasions and the ensuing war between the Scandinavians and the natives, the number of captives taken as slaves increased considerably. The Irish Church vehemently opposed slavery and blamed the Norman invasion of 1169 on divine punishment for the practice, as well as local acceptance of polygamy and divorce.

    America was the best deal going for African capitives.

    Option 1. genocide at home – maybe some brief torture then extincition.
    Option 2. The Carribean or South America, where they really knew how to work them, to death and always needed fresh, cheap replacements.
    Option 3. America. Low skill/low capability slaves’ lives might not be all wonderful but it was possible to climb a ladder. Sometimes got to breed eons up the scale, like Thomas Jefferson’s concubine.
    Also got to breed faster than anyone else too (even with catholic Hispanics and European immigrants, “whites” did not keep up until the most recent Latin American Invasion). Still collecting payments and AA jobs 150 years later. Not bad for peoples otherwise dead and dusted 200+ years ago (pre 1808).

    America is rich, so of course there are grifters or envious people who want a piece.

    The real problem is not even slavery. Many whites came as indentured servants, they are fine now. Indians had it much worse than slavery, they don’t whine as much as Blackey, but they have their reservations and their casinos. The problem is that Blacks will always be unequal and poorer than Whites, so they have to blame it on “Slavery” or “Institutional Racism” or something else. De Tocqueville already saw that.

    Anyway, Blacks, as Indians, are a historical population of the country, so Americans must learn to live with them. But how?

    If blacks are a small minority, they are less problematic, so perhaps every pace could have a quota of max 8% blacks, to be spread out in every region? This would also give liberals a taste of their own medicine and force them to live alongside their beloved blacks.

    Thank you for this great information. All white majority nations have outlawed slavery. In America we outlawed dictatorship, outlawed slavery, outlawed segregation, and outlawed unequal rights based on race. That is our heritage. And the collectivists would try to take it all away with their schtick of accusing their enemies of what they themselves are guilty of, always reversing reality or the meaning of words, which is tiring, but easily disproven. Now their great cure for blacks overall having a high crime rate and poor societal statistical outcomes is to not charge blacks for crimes and to have racial preferences for black people, you know, because black people have no personal responsibility to not be a criminal or to achieve anything in life seeing as superior white people are responsible for their every deed in life, which is pathetic and an admission of white supremacy. Imagine being susceptible to that ideology, to your own detriment, and liking it because people will feel sorry for you and baby you through life. Imagine being a black descendent of black slaves in America who has never been a slave and wanting to get paid money by white Americans who have never owned slaves and whose ancestors fought to free the slaves; it doesn’t take a high IQ to realize that if “reparations” were paid that no one would respect that black people earned any wealth that they have, and when the money runs out and they go to look for a job people will laugh at them and tell them to hit the road, and when they hit the road and beg for money on the street no one will give them any and will laugh at their ignorance, their stupidity, and their dishonor.

    As an exercise, one can look at black population growth in America, and it becomes apparent that blacks are very successful. Evolution only cares about who reproduces, to then show up for the future.

    Black population growth rate in North America is extraordinary, pacing or exceeding that of whites, even though white population numbers were supplanted by additional European immigration.

    Clown world has lots of myths that must be sustained, to then gaslight whitey into feeling guilt. If whitey feels guilt, then he doesn’t reproduce himself. He can then be divested of his generational wealth. Boomer whites are especially brainwashed. “We are spending the kids inheritance!”

    Finance capital (mostly Jewish) created a business plan to build ships, and keep the ships full. Negroes were cargo on the inbound leg, and hemp/timber on the outbound leg. Rum made from sugar was used to grease African leaders to then round up more slaves. Jews of course were heavily involved in the making of Rum as part of their Atlantic slave trade business plan.

    Once the negro was in North America, then he began to rapidly reproduce his numbers. It must have been horrible…

    Once whitey is erased from North America, then former white names on gravestones will be toppled and erased, statues pulled down, and history deleted. It is already happening.

    The new population will create foundational myths to justify their usurpation. Mexican’s have always been here; Jews are gods chosen, blacks are magical, etc.

    Why do whites go along with their destruction? They have been convinced that only prices and money matter – that Jewish invented finance capitalism is the natural way of the world. Everything is reduced to a money price.

  34. The ancient Greeks were aware of the contradiction of having a democracy supported by human slaves. However, they did not have the luxury of fossil fuels that now provides each modern citizen with the equivalent of some 50-200 energy slaves.

    Meaning, it was only with the advent of fossil fuels that the idea of ending slavery became popular and tenable. Not that slavery has much ended. But you get my point; everyone today enjoying pavement, plumbing and the power grid is probably fooling themselves about their ease of life and having no need or desire for slaves.

    It may have been worth mentioning of the use of white Europeans in the US as de fecto slave labour . That is the deliberate importation of “Convicts” & “indentured servants”. Convicts were “sold” in the US.
    Indeed, in the South it’s has been mentioned that the indentured worked along side black slaves & were often treated far worse than the actual slaves — slaves were an investment, servants merely “borrowed” labour, with limited duties to “return” them.

    I generally agree with this article. I’ve lived in and studied countries across Eurasia, Plenty could be said about slavery in China (basically all pre-1911 women for one thing) and others here.

    But, to play the devil’s advocate, there is some kind of a point in the ‘original sin’ claim. That is, who defines sin? Here, the role of Moses coming down from the mountain is played by the founding fathers themselves. If the country is supposedly founded on ‘All men being created equal’ but continues to have slavery for 100 years and Jim Crow for 100 more, they have sinned against their own integrity and credibility. In a country ostensibly founded on ideals, such a glaring hypocrisy normalizes hypocrisy as such, putting principle as such ‘in its place’. ‘Merica became something rife and riddled with hypocrisy like few others, to the point where ‘in god we trust’ should probably be replaced with ‘to protect the village we had to destroy it’ on the coinage, as a motto more encapsulating the nation’s essence. Or something like that.

    While the Communist barbarian hordes destroy civilization by bringing down statues of men far superior to them barbarians or what they barbarians could ever become, I present Madam Tinubu

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Efunroye_Tinubu
    Efunroye Tinubu (c. 1810 – 1887), born Efunporoye Osuntinubu, was a politically significant figure in Nigerian history because of her role as a powerful female aristocrat and slave trader in pre-colonial and colonial Nigeria. She was a major figure in Lagos during the reigns of Obas Adele, Oluwole, Akitoye, and Dosunmu.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Efunroye_Tinubu#Opinions_on_the_Trans-Atlantic_Slave_Trade
    ome publications[22][23] have asserted without any substantiation that Madam Tinubu became a changed person after learning about the evils of the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade.[24][25][26]

    However, an often cited hagiography about Madam Tinubu by Oladipo Yemitan paints a different picture of an unapologetic and profit minded stance.

    On one occasion, during her final sojourn in Abeokuta, she was alleged to have sold a young boy into slavery and was accused of it. When arraigned before Ogundipe Alatise over the matter, she reportedly explained: ‘I have a large house-hold and I must feed them well. I need money to do that, that’s why’.

    — Oladipo. Yemitan, ‘Madame Tinubu: Merchant and King-maker'[27]
    Another section of Yemitan’s Tinubu biography, referred to as the Amadie-Ojo Affair, captures a slave trading deal gone sour in 1853 (notably after the 1852 Treaty abolishing slavery in Lagos) wherein Madam Tinubu tells another slave trader (Domingo Martinez) that “she would rather drown the slaves [20 in number] than sell them at a discount”.[28]

    And guess what? She has a giant statue in Lagos and a square named after her. When will the Western leftard barbarian hordes bring down this statue?

  51. What makes American slavery unique is that it was chattel slavery based on skin pigment, which denied the humanity of its victims. There was no such stigma attached to slavery in, say, the Roman empire, in which a freedman had full civil rights once released from bondage, save being able to hold public office. His sons could, however; in fact, the grandfather of Rome’s first emperor Augustus had been a slave.

    Southern slaveholders boasted that they had solved capitalism’s most vexing problem, the struggle between capital and labor, by turning their labor force into a capital asset. Some advocated northern mill owners do the same with their workers, as the American labor movement first began its stirrings for justice. Slavery, at its most basic level, was every capitalist’s wet dream: not only did you get to legally steal your employees’ wages, but you also got to act out your sadistic or psychosexual personality disorders with impunity on a pool of helpless victims. Initially slaveholders did not attempt to justify their spectacularly profitable “peculiar institution” but as criticism grew sharper, they reacted by convincing themselves that slavery was no less than the white man’s noble responsibility and god-given Christian duty.

    There was never strong popular sentiment in the US to abolish slavery until the slaveholder insurrection, when it was wielded as a weapon of economic warfare against treason. The movement began in the fervent 1830s, peaked in the activist 1840s, and faded in the reactionary 1850s. Of the few who were concerned, most feared slavery’s corrosive effects on white men’s morals and wages, and the continual, grinding terror of slave rebellion, the much-feared “alarum bell in the night”, in Jefferson’s words. 137 of the first 150 antislavery societies were founded below the Mason-Dixon line. In the wake of the Nat Turner murders, the Virginia legislature was inundated with petitions to outlaw slavery, and nearly voted to do so in 1832.

    The loudest antislavery northerners descended from the first Puritan settlers. They had always considered themselves the nation’s moral conscience, but they had become irrelevant in the dynamic, new multiethnic America of the emerging Industrial Age. Fighting the good fight against slavery was their way of reasserting their moral superiority and political power, the same way fundamentalist Christians cynically revived the abortion controversy in our time.

    I think the article says it all. Slavery is still practised to this day in Africa both by the Moslems and by other blacks. Slavery flourishes in other forms.

    In the original version the Master provided what little the slave needed to survive ie food clothing and shelter. In the modern version the Master pays the “hired help” just less than is needed to buy food clothing and shelter. Here in the West we have modified it further and called it “credit”.

    What is interesting is that in South America and the Islands where 10 + more times slaves were imported one rarely if ever encounters the blather of American blacks. I posit there are reasons for this. One, the people there are too busy earning a living, two they do not have money to pay “reparations” and three few if any of them give a shit. I have never heard of an Afro Brazilian or Afro Englishman or Afro German. This nonsense seems to exist only in the US.

    Also since Latin America is run mainly by whites and there are few if any blacks in Government, and those few who are and the coloured who are must toe the line, there is no seedbed for all this crap. To suggest to any of these people that there is white privilege or slavery is an original sin would elicit laughter and mockery and to persist is to find oneself jumping from a plane without a parachute over the Amazon jungle.

    I think what is unique to the US is that we listen to this shit without directly challenging it. Blacks are also looking for yet another handout. This nonsense would come to an end if these idiots were told to leave the country if they find it so offensive. The paradox though is that US blacks berate the place but wont return to Africa while African blacks are only too eager to jump on the first plane headed to the place of original sin, white privilege, racism and so forth.

    That race is an upside down study in abnormal behaviour and thought patterns. Blacks “hate” whites but hunger to live among them while at the same time loving to slaughter their own. The people they choose to govern them abuse them in far worse ways than the white man ever could or ever dreamed of. To get some additional comedy in this regard see http://www.prescottenews.com and search “Rich Blacks want white neighbours”.

    My final point is that the black man will always be a slave because in his own mind he sees himself as such. His is a self inflicted servitude resulting from his daily mantra of CRT, BLM, white privilege or whatever silly new slogan his race hustlers come up with.

    Compared to the English and Scottish indentured servants, Scots-Irish in this category of colonial immigrants were relatively few. Most Scots-Irish immigrated as groups of families, each group from a particular Presbyterian church in Ulster.

    Though some entered their new life as indentured servants, the majority of Scots-Irish were farmers who settled with their families in tight-knit communities along the western frontiers.

    Quoted from Scots-Irish Immigration in the 1700s
    https://www.ancestry.com/historicalinsights/scots-irish-immigration-1700s

    This brief article incorrect illustrates tartan-waring people. Scots-Irish did not wear such clan symbols because they were from Lowland Scotland and Northern England, genetically more Germanic than Celtic.

He might not ever let you drive it or even sit in it and when he sells it, he keeps the cash. The argument that non-slaveowners benefited from the trade also makes no sense. Competing against large plantations with low cost labor was deleterious to the free small farmers and craftsmen.

    In the old days, if a feudal lord needed cheap labors, the best way was capture some slaves from a rival tribe or bought some from the slave markets. Women lacked the strength to handle weapons, to harness animals to plough the land, so they were "inferior''. But that had all changed since the advent of steam and internal combustion engines and lately automation.
    A combine harvester can easily do the jobs of a 100 slaves of old at much cheaper cost. Which is cheaper: maintain the operator of a combine harvester VS feeding &housing 100 slaves?

    The American slavery episode was particularly odd because
    –it took place between the old era and the modern mechanised era. England abolished slavery in 1833.
    –It involved massive import from another continent. Officially slave importation of slaves to US was banned in 1808 but it went on clandestinely
    –Much of the old south agriculture depended on it.

    There will massive BLM (Bot lives Matter) movement in 2081:

    You’d think this central fact of black identity, that Jews controlled the slave trade, would convince blacks they’re being used again, this time to make war against whites in America like they’re doing to whites in South Africa.

    In his Jewish Revolutionary Spirit Micheal Jones recounts the story of black Jamaican activist Marcus Garvey’s first trip to the States and his visit to the NAACP office in NYC, where he found no blacks, but an office full of Jewish lawyers who had no use for him. Of course, blacks would have been allowed in now and then to shine the Jews’ shoes, sweep the floors, and clean the toilets.

    The irony is that Jews, through Hollywood and their control of black music, have demonically turned blacks into race obsessed narcissists who thereby conveniently cannot see their shame being enslaved by the Jews once again with drugs, sex, and violence and solely to serve as cannon fodder in the Jews’ war on whites.

    Well said. And somewhat sadly accurate I’m afraid.

    You may appreciate the following (copied below) which I wrote several years ago – it seemed important at the time.

    Now I suspect that we as a species we are likely down to our last two generations. I think that we have to accept the fact that the reason humanity will not survive is because we do not merit survival.

    ____

    I am a very special human.

    Long before humans first walked upright out of a cave, we have been obsessed with, and essentially defined by, two things: domination, and punishment. If pressed for a single word, it would be coercion.

    What makes me a very special human is that I am among the very first generation of humans to be faced with the existential reality that that is no longer a viable business model for our species.

    Even just natural evolution, in the Darwinian sense, can take us only so far. Beyond that, evolution is an act of will, and not of nature.

    If we do not will to change our basic mode of human interaction, away from coercion, then we will perish.

    Consider the parallel development of our systems of international dispute resolution as we approach the 100th anniversary of the founding of the League of Nations. How far have we progressed in a century? Not very. If at all.

    Now consider the concurrent development of broadly-defined weapons-systems over the same century.

    Our ability to kill humans is increasing at a rate that is vastly greater than our ability to control the process of not doing so.

    As night follows day, something has to give.

  72. The fact that you didn’t mentioned the Jews as the master of slave trade in UK and America, yet point up to Islam, and ‘Mohammed’ (who are you referring to, actually?), shows how sick anti-Islam you are. Just for your knowledge, as for now, both Muslim and Christian are facing the same enemy, the Jews and its globalist, Zionist associate. So unless the cooperation between these two happen, than we goyyim will forever be slave to the Jews.

    Let us not debating on how the Moslem enslaved the Christians during Ottomon, or the Christian enslaving Moslem during the crusade, or we will forever be a laughing stock for the Jews.

    Let us, for the sake of encountering our enemy, united for once.

    Remember, it is the neocons who brought down the Middle East, while at the same time pressuring America and Europe to open its border and receiving floods of Moslem immigrant! So unless you stop smearing your ally, then believe me, the Jews will laugh seeing us slauthering each other while they rise to the top as a New World Order master.

    “Borderlands to the Backcountry: The Flight from North Britain, 1717 to 1765”

    On p. 618 is an interesting discussion of the term “Scots-Irish.”
    Just because people sailed from the province of Ulster does not mean they were either Scottish or Irish. Many to most were from Northern England. Many were part of the Anglo-English ascendency in Ireland, etc.

    This book is a must-read for all those with a serious interest in understanding American history (and are looking for a good summer reading project). The praise that was heaped on this book by historians and reviewers from the across the political spectrum is a good calling card. Loaded with quotes, illustrations, maps. Simply fascinating.

    NOTE -Off topic but public service info:

    Do not pet a strange dog. (leaned from experience too)

    With the owner’s permission, offer your loosely clenched fist (protect those fingers), preferably down by your side with the back of hand exposed, and let him come to you and sniff. Do not “attack his head” by trying to pet him. How would you like a stranger banging on your head? Don’t stare them in the eye as that may appear threatening. Some breeds do not like to be approached, but prefer to be ignored, so that they can approach you at their choosing.

    Britain’s War Against the Slave Trade: The Operations of the Royal Navy’s West Africa Squadron 1807-1867 by Anthony Sullivan– Buy at Amazon India

    Opposing the Slavers: The Royal Navy’s Campaign Against the Atlantic Slave Trade by Peter Grindal

    Royal Navy Versus the Slave Traders: Enforcing Abolition at Sea 1808-1898 by Bernard Edwards

    On 16 March 1807, the British Parliament passed The Abolition of the Slave Trade Act. In the following year the Royal Navy’s African Squadron was formed, its mission to stop and search ships at sea suspected of carrying slaves from Africa to the Americas and the Middle East. With typical thoroughness, the Royal Navy went further, and took the fight to the enemy, sailing boldly up uncharted rivers and creeks to attack the barracoons where the slaves were assembled ready for shipment. For much of its long campaign against the evil of slavery Britain’s Navy fought alone and unrecognised. Its enemies were many and formidable. Ranged against it were the African chiefs, who sold their own people into slavery, the Arabs, who rode shotgun on the slave caravans to the coast, and the slave ships of the rest of the world, heavily armed, and prepared to do battle to protect their right to traffic in the forbidden black ivory. The war was long and bitter and the cost to the Royal Navy in ships and men heavy, but the result was worthy of the sacrifices made. The abolition of the slave trade led to a scramble for empires.

    We should all be forced to pedal a “bicycle” for a certain number of hours/day to top up batteries.

    This is what they did in the Golden Age in the Low Countries:
    Miscreants were obliged, as a “community service punishment,” to “pedal” in a mechanism attached to pumps that drove water out of the canal system of Amsterdam and other locales. In other words, they were used to supplement the wind power whose primary function was not to grind wheat or something, but to pump water “uphill” and keep the Netherlands habitable. (Major drainage projects such as draining the inland Haarlemer Meer were not possible until the invention of the steam engine/pump.)

    Our fitness mania actually dovetails fairly well with our energy needs. At least in the micro-context.

    Frankly, I think the obese should be obliged to do this anyhow, to make up for the danger they represent to the rest of us healthy folk as virus carriers, and to reduce their own vulnerability to infection and disease.

It signified claiming possession of the territory on behalf of the king of France, Francis I. Donnacona, chief of Stadacona (Québec city), was unhappy at this effrontery. Surmising this, Cartier lied and downplayed the significance of the 9-meter (30-ft) cross.

Imagine hearing that you were a savage; being forbidden to speak in your savage tongue; being forced to dress in your oppressor’s sartorial; being made to pray to the oppressor’s god; being fed strange, insalubrious, unpalatable meals; being used as slave labor; being subject to beatings; and, even worse, being sodomized or raped. If you survived this cruel assimilation project, how would your feelings be toward the government, its gendarmerie, and the church? And what of your feelings toward the cross, that ubiquitous symbol of your stolen childhood and your people’s dispossession?1

  82. This article massively distorts the real picture almost as badly as the woke platitudes it criticizes. First, Muslims’ treatment of enslaved captives was overall significantly better than that of comparable non-Muslims, and vastly better than Americans’ treatment of African slaves. The religious commandments to show kindness to slaves, the Qur’anic injunctions to free slaves whenever possible, and the traditions allowing “slaves” to amass wealth, power and prestige, often to the point of becoming the “masters of their masters” (Google “Mamluk dynasty”) made slavery in Islamic cultures less onerous than in non-Islamic ones. A slave in Islamic cultures had better prospects for social mobility than a working-class person in today’s Europe or USA. (The Qur’an says it is better to marry a goodhearted pious slave than a wealthy free person.) European historiography, despite its rabid Islamophobia, has been unable to hide these facts from anyone who reads carefully and consults non-European sources.

    As for the very worst form of slavery, galley slavery circa the 16th to 18th centuries, the worst offenders were the French and Spanish navies, not the Muslim “pirates”—including the European Muslim renegadoes who rebelled against the hideously oppressive conditions aboard the European oligarchs’ ships with mutinies and conversions to Islam, the religion of absolute spiritual equality.

    An excellent post.

    I would also like to point out that at least by the time of the civil war, the overwhelming majority of white working-class Americans were opposed to slavery. They fought a bloody war to end it! To my knowledge, the American Civil War is the only time in recorded history that slavery was ended while it was still relatively more profitable than ‘free’ labor (OK there was the Haitian slave revolt but that was a different sort of thing).

    As pointed out here, Brazil had slavery for longer than the United States, and only ended it AFTER the elites had boosted the population sufficiently that ‘free’ labor became cheaper than slaver labor.

    One is reminded: slavery requires non-trivial costs in terms of chains, guards etc. When a country becomes overpopulated, when there are 100 desperate people competing for every job, slavery becomes uneconomic. But when there is an open frontier and abundant resources, slavery is pretty much the only way for most rich people to live a plantation-style life.

    Britain gave up slavery but remember that in Victorian (“Dickensian”) England the working class was so poor that slavery would have been economically pointless. So I say little credit there.

    The point that other slave societies integrated the slaves into the lower strata of their society without official second class status is well taken, but still, let’s emphasize the ‘lower strata’ part. Blacks in Brazil post-slavery were not really equal to the ruling whites, were they?

    For slavery to be the “original sin,” doesn’t it first have to be a sin? Before a couple hundred years ago, was there any religious tradition that considered slavery a sin? Sure, many religions put limits on slavery – being kind to slaves, not enslaving fellow believers – but I’m not aware of any religion that flat-out forbade slavery before the advent of dissenting Protestants like the Quakers. Maybe Sikhism?

    I just had a quick look on the “ An Encyclopaedia of NewZealand 1966” and as you know, the maoris consider themselves great warriors for a reason. The constant warring between tribes as mentioned on that site, was obviously based on subject matter used before political correctness took over. One page is dedicated to a tribal leader called Hongi. It says that in January 1819 he returned to the bay of islands with at least 2000 prisoners and many preserved heads of slain enemies. There is no mention of why he needed so many prisoners, your guess is as good as mine. Also mentioned were his cannibalistic ways.
    And when you look at the traditional Maori house, they had the front covered porch area, so too even the small thatched huts. That huge totem pole looks like it might have animal heads carved in it, not a tiki. Some of those people there at the front look to have the massive cheekbones that the Indians had as well. The author links the book by Hazel Petrie also.

    There was no such stigma attached to slavery in, say, the Roman empire, in which a freedman had full civil rights once released from bondage, save being able to hold public office. His sons could, however; in fact, the grandfather of Rome’s first emperor Augustus had been a slave.

    The King of Dahomey trafficked in slavery. Our (((friends))) simply bought slaves from the King, to then fill their ships. A little Rum goes a long way.

    Here are some quotes from Negroes in Negroland:

    https://archive.org/details/negroesinnegrola00helpiala

    [MORE]

    ” The present King of Dahomey has appropriated no less than
    three thousand women to his own use. The number belonging to
    his head wai’riors depends upon their bravery, but no one is allowed
    to have a number large enough to suggest most remotely
    any idea of rivalry Avith the king. It is well known that many of
    the wives of the king must be sacrificed at the death of their lord,
    and this, no doubt, is a powerful motive to induce them to take
    the best care of him, and prolong his life as much as possible, but
    never deters any from freely entering into this honored relationship.”
    Wilson’s Africa, page 202.

    ” THE main object contemplated in the national anniversary of
    Dahomey is, that the king may water the graves of his ancestors
    with the blood of human victims. These are numerous, consisting
    of prisoners taken in war, of condemned criminals, and of
    many seized by lawless violence. The captives are brought out
    in succession, with their arms pinioned, and a feticheer, laying
    his hand upon the devoted head, utters a few magic words, while
    another from behind, with a large scimitar, severs it from the
    body, when shouts of applause ascend from the surrounding multitude.
    At any time when the king has a message to convey to
    one of his deceased relations, he delivers it to one of his subjects,
    then strikes off his head, that he may carry it to the other world.

    ” At Coomassie the customs, or human sacrifices, are practised
    on a scale still more tremendous than at Dahomey. The king had
    lately sacrificed on the grave of his mother three thousand victims,
    two thousand of whom were Fantee prisoners ; and at the death
    of the late sovereign, the sacrifice was continued weekly for three
    months, consisting each time of two hundred slaves. The absurd
    belief here entertained, that the rank of the deceased in the future
    world is decided by the train which he carries along with him,
    makes filial piety interested in promoting by this means the exaltation
    of a departed parent. On these occasions, the caboceers
    and princes, in order to court royal favor, often rush out, seize the
    first person they meet, and drag him in for sacrifice.

    ” When a human head is desired to be preserved, the brains are
    extracted through the spinal connection, and the head held on the
    end of a stick in the smoke till it becomes quite hard and dry. I
    have seen some thousands preserved in this way in Dahomey.”
    Duncan’s Africa, Vol. II., page 159

    Another slave trade area was in Crimea.

    https://listverse.com/2018/06/06/10-little-known-facts-from-the-crimean-slave-trade/

    One of the longest, yet least remembered (at least in the West) slave trades of history centered around the Crimean Khanate, a Muslim state that was a vassal of the Ottoman Turks. Existing from 1449 until 1783, the Crimean Khanate was both a giant repository for slaves (most of whom were Slavic Christians) and one of Europe’s largest slave markets.

    The Crimean Tatars and the Turkic Nogai people were responsible for one of the largest slave trades in history. Yet almost nobody outside of Ukraine and Russia has heard of them.

    The slaves were gotten by raiding villages and towns in Poland, what is now Ukraine and Russia.

    Given its location on the Black Sea and its link between the Christian West and Muslim East, Crimea was known for its merchants and mercantile activity. Chief among these traders were the slave traders who bought and sold human cargo from the surrounding Christian states. This trade increased substantially after Crimea became independent of the Mongol Golden Horde. By 1449, Crimea owed its allegiance to the new Ottoman Empire in Anatolia.

    A major Crimean Tatar raid into Europe occurred in 1468. This raid reached as far north as modern-day Galicia (a region shared by Ukraine and Poland), and at least one author suggests that frequent Crimean raids into this region led to the creation of a well-known folk saying: “O how much better to lie on one’s bier, than to be a captive on the way to Tatary.”[1]

    The solution is simple, strong law and order, lock up the criminals for a long time, and freedom of association. When Giuliani cracked down hard on crime in NYC, he saved the place. Before him, I remember people getting mugged in broad daylight in midtown. The problem is criminals, and if they are dealt with firmly and quickly there can be a kind of peace between the races. Freedom of association, allowing Whites to stay away from blacks, also prevents crime and helps to keep the peace. Easy solutions, but for some odd reason, forbidden.

    One thing missing from this article is the institutionalized racism that was prevalent and legalized in the US.

    The cotton plantation system needed labor.

    People always look at history wrong, and not through the lens of economics. It causes them to make fundamental errors.

    The civil war was mostly about the Southern Economy returning to the English Colonial System. The southern economy was separating from the industrializing north.

    After the war, Lincoln was intent on industrializing the South, but he was assasinated by our finance capitalist (((friends))). Lincoln had become monetarily aware by watching the action of debt free Treasury greenbacks.

    The usury crowd of NorthEastern banks, post war, used Negroes as agents, and installed them in positions of governmental authority. The Negro agents then proceeded to put the South and West into debts to the Northern privateering bankers.

    The south wanted to keep their plantation economy going, in order to survive, while simultaneously (((carpetbaggers))) wanted to buy up the south cheap. This is no different than what our friends did to Germany during and after the hyperinflation – they borrow (create from nothing) dollars to buy up real assets, thereby stripping the original inhabitants of their livelihood.

    Lincoln even mentioned the two front war:

    http://jesus-is-savior.com/Evils%20in%20Government/Federal%20Reserve%20Scam/abraham_lincoln.htm

    The money powers prey upon the nation in times of peace and conspire against it in times of adversity. The banking powers are more despotic than a monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. They denounce as public enemies all who question their methods or throw light upon their crimes. I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me and the bankers in the rear. Of the two, the one at my rear is my greatest foe. [As a most undesirable consequence of the war…] Corporations have been enthroned, and an era of corruption in high places will follow. The money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in the hands of a few, and the Republic is destroyed.” —Abraham Lincoln

    In most countries the slaves who survived were assimilated in the lower strata of the populace after a few years. And these countries never framed laws that codified to confirm their secondary status

    There was no economic incentive in those countries, to frame laws to confirm secondary status.

    After the Farm economy was industrialized, especially with the invention of tractors and electrification, blacks became surplus labor – and that is when the problems really began.

    Ideologues are often blind.

    https://jcpa.org/article/the-arab-muslim-slave-trade-lifting-the-taboo/

    The Arab slave trade was characterized by appalling violence, castration, and rape. The men were systematically castrated to prevent them from reproducing and becoming a stock. This inhumane practice resulted in a high death rate: six out of 10 people who were mutilated died from their wounds in castration centers. The Arab slave trade also targeted African women and girls, who were captured and deported for use as sex slaves.

    According to the work of some historians, the Arab slave trade has affected more than 17 million people. In the Saharan region alone, more than nine million African captives were deported and two million died on the roads.

    This despicable phenomenon was legitimized by Islam, as Christianity would later condone the transatlantic slave trade.

    Anybody of middling intelligence can observe Arab genetics for negroid racial characteristics, and then overlay that onto slave numbers, such as the 9 million extracted from Africa.

    The question has to be, why aren’t Arabs more negroid than they are?

    I’m no expert on Muslim slave industry codes vs. white or Jewish, but I would be surprised if there were any significant differences among any of them. Mr. Barrett, I would suggest you read “White Gold”, based on the experience of Thomas Pellow of England who suffered as a slave in Morocco for 30 years. He was one of about a million Europeans abducted and forced into slavery in North Africa. After reading it I think you will be very hard pressed to think the conditions of those white slaves were somehow better than the black slaves of North America.

    I was under the impression that many slaves were castrated by their Muslim masters.

    “The Arab slave trade typically dealt in the sale of castrated male slaves. Black boys between the age of 8 and 12 had their scrotums and penises completely amputated to prevent them from reproducing. About six of every 10 boys bled to death during the procedure, according to some sources, but the high price brought by eunuchs on the market made the practice profitable.

    Some men were castrated to be eunuchs in domestic service, and the practice of neutering male slaves was not limited to only Black males. “The calipha in Baghdad at the beginning of the 10th Century had 7,000 black eunuchs and 4,000 white eunuchs in his palace,” writes author Ronald Segal in his 2002 book “Islam’s Black Slaves: The Other Black Diaspora.”

    Not only did “prophet” Muhammad engage himself in the slave trade, he allowed his followers to rape women captured in battle, because they had become their slaves. Several verses in the Qur’an confirm that.

  124. @Kevin Barrett

    Almost all the nations had slaves; some were treated well, some were not. Determining which ancient civilizations treated slaves the best seems less important than dismantling radical and unbalanced modern thinking about slavery, which is often arbitrary. Are the serfs of Europe better off, shall we say, freer than the libertarian drug addicts of Seattle? Or their corporate hired slave brothers who owe college money? Better to suck on the government’s nipple; Join the Columbian Harem.

    The Christian scriptures contain the book of Philemon, which encourages the fugitive slave to return and make peace with his master brother in Christ, serving him again if necessary. Of course, slaves must have full access to the church: “neither bond nor free […] for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.” (Gal. 3:28).

    Christianity also prohibits sodomy, which was widely used in the Roman Empire or in modern dogs to signal the dominance of one male and humiliating submission of another.

    Considering how often Mr. Taylor referred us to third parties, you could be doing us a service by providing us with more as a source than a book to order.

    All true. Including that “others did it” is no excuse.

    Slavery was practiced by all humanity, by countries with different political structure, it’s an issue without political agency which is simply being used to wage a war by other means. You are free to consider it a moral and religious “sin”, argue that “humanity has no excuse” and open the “Church of Bad Humanity” to condemn Africans enslaving each other and later selling some to Europeans. However, as it is, your stance supports a poisonous mixture of half truths and whole lies and that’s much, much worse than a truthful historical presentation of slavery.

    BTW, slavery does exists today, not only abroad but also here in the US, it’s called child/human trafficking and with Trillions of fake printed dollars, there’s very little government money for countering child trafficking or passing adequate legislation. Half of these children are US residents, the rest are brought here by illegal immigrants, often sold by their parents… just like in the old days.

  133. Great Article. Well Done. I for one am not ashamed at all. America was the kindest country to Slaves. And it was America that put an end to slavery throughout most of the world.

    Slaves were provided Food, Clothing, and Shelter in exchange for labor. They raised families. They went to church. The developed culture. They often worked in the fields shoulder-to-shoulder with their owners (Sharecropping). They were seen as something of great value and their offspring encouraged. In most cases, the family unit was maintained. But even if families in slave days were split up, I ask you, how many family units in America today are dispersed all across America living thousands of miles from each other.

    This slavery model of the 1400s-1800s was …what it was. Crude, sometimes brutal but very very limited. Once Central Banking evolved…a much more ingenious and insidious model of slavery emerged; “The Wage Slave”.

    You can capture someone and force them to do work and you yourself pay for their upkeep. OR you could take that same person, give them their freedom, hire them to work for you, and then charge them for everything under the sun, except the air they breathe??????? Fucking Genius!!!!

    “In 1862, William Ellison, a black man, was one of the largest slave owners in South Carolina as well as one of the wealthiest. He was born a slave and was given the name April, after the month in which he was born. He was luckier than most and was bought by a white slave owner named William Ellison, who took the time to educate him. When he was 26 years old, he was freed by his master and began building his expansive cotton plantation. As a free man, he had his name changed to William Ellison, that of his former owner.

    What makes Ellison so despicable and earns him the number-two spot on this list is how he collected his wealth. Ellison was known to have made a large proportion of his money as a “slave breeder.” Breeding slaves was illegal in many Southern states, but Ellison secretly sold almost all females born, keeping a select few for future breeding. He kept many of the young males, as they were considered useful on his plantation. Ellison was known to be a harsh master, and his slaves were almost starved and extremely poorly clothed. He kept a windowless building on his property for the specific purpose of chaining his misbehaving slaves.”

    William Ellison was one of the wealthiest men in the South as well as being a black, former slave. He owned cotton gins, plantations, and 68 slaves. And from accounts of the time, he wasn’t very nice…At the peak of slavery in the United States, large numbers of free Negroes owned black slaves; in fact, in numbers disproportionate to their representation in society at large. In 1860 only a small minority of whites owned slaves. According to the U.S. census report for that last year before the Civil War, there were nearly 27 million whites in the country. Some 8 million of them lived in the slaveholding states. The census also determined that there were fewer than 385,000 individuals who owned slaves. Even if all slaveholders had been white, that would amount to only 1.4 percent of whites in the country (or 4.8 % of southern whites owning one or more slaves, however, around 30% for free blacks owned slaves).In the rare instances when the ownership of slaves by free Negroes is acknowledged in the history books, justification centers on the claim that black slave masters were simply individuals who purchased the freedom of a spouse or child from a white slaveholder and had been unable to legally manumit them. Although this did indeed happen at times, it is a misrepresentation of the majority of instances, one which is debunked by records of the period on blacks who owned slaves. These include individuals such as Justus Angel and Mistress L. Horry, of Colleton District, South Carolina, who each owned 84 slaves in 1830. In fact, in 1830 a fourth of the free Negro slave masters in South Carolina owned 10 or more slaves; eight owning 30 or more.”
    Blacks slave owners were even worse in their treatment of other slaves than Whites slave owners.

    The slave population EXPLODED because of the good treatment they received! They had the very same quality of life as normal whites during that period…..ate the same food….wore the same types of clothing….had the same level of housing.

    As to the lies regarding mistreatment, rapes, whippings…..this was extremely rare as slaves were valuable and expensive….harsh treatment could provoke rebellion…..whites on plantations were outnumbered 50 to one (or 100 to one in some cases)

    Irish slaves were used for demolition because african slaves were too valuable to risk injury.

    The constant raping of black women? Never happened. If an overseer messed with a slave woman he was fired and blackballed (no pun intended) all over the south. There were laws against race mixing.

    Brazil took 11 times as many African slaves as the US, and they had a far shorter life expectancy in Brazil. Only new replenishment kept their slave population up, since natural reproduction was not enough given the duress of their lives. Plus, slavery in Brazil did not end until 1888.

    Not to mention that the two Western time zones of the mainland US had few to no slaves by the time each state became part of the US.

    Humanity is something that in time should just be overcome.

    Criticism of humanism as over-idealistic began in the 19th century. For Friedrich Nietzsche, humanism was nothing more than an empty figure of speech[6] – a secular version of theism. Max Stirner expressed a similar position in his book The Ego and Its Own, published several decades before Nietzsche’s work. Nietzsche argues in Genealogy of Morals that human rights exist as a means for the weak to constrain the strong; as such, they do not facilitate the emancipation of life, but instead deny it.

    If there had been NO members of Jewish communities involved in the slave trade it would be surprising. Every community had members who were in on it, from Africa to the New World. You needed some capital to play, so the vast majorities of all these communities were not directly involved, even if many supported the practise or were indifferent to its harms.
    However, the current official ideology of the ‘antisemitism’ industry is that NO Jew, EVER, ANYWHERE, did a bad thing, even by accident. They are unsullied, perfect, inerrant, ‘moral’ angels, and anyone who says differently is an ‘antisemite’ who wants to re-open Auschwitz.

    Americans are unequivocally guilty as sin on this and there is no way around it.

    No they are not. You are brainwashed. Go back and read the comment section, including some of the comments I made. In the real world, dupes and idiots are roundly criticized, and then shown the door.

    This does absolutely nothing to change the historical fact that the US is unequivocally guilty of crimes against humanity in regards to slavery.

    That is some more mindless BS to add to your already stellar pile of crap.

    Some section of the American population, especially (((Finance Capital))) wanted to make some money. These types of people have always been with us, and exist everywhere, not only in America.

    This wanting to take unearned income, usury, and rents is part of the nature of malformed men – and that includes magic negroes and random brown people. They get over and take if they can.

    It takes a special kind of civilization to confront this side of man, and put it down. The Americans of the past did indeed confront it, and put it down. The colonials were in a pitched battle with various types who washed up on the shores, and who attempted to take usury, and enclose the lands.

    Larry is trying to spread guilt – don’t buy the lie. There is nothing for whitey to feel guilty about, and really should feel pride instead.

    The random people washing up on the shores of America today, have no guilt at all about using their minority status to take out SBA loans, or get some sort of GIBs from guilted whitey.

    There is no doubt that the horrors of the last 500 are mostly, but not entirely by any means, due to European aggression, expansion, exploitation and genocide. That is ‘White’ ‘Western’ European crime. However, it was always the work of the moneyed elites in those countries, who also ruthlessly exploited and repressed their home populations. The crimes were class and economic crimes first, racialist supremacist, ie mostly derived from Judaic theology, secondary.

    The constant raping of black women? Never happened. If an overseer messed with a slave woman he was fired and blackballed (no pun intended) all over the south. There were laws against race mixing.

    Black women threw themselves at white men, especially during and after the Civil War.

    I’m a fan of the breed, personally, so I gotta correct the inaccuracies.

    The Fila was not bred and trained to hunt down and kill slaves, but to find and return them. You might as well say a bird dog is vicious because it was bred and trained to flush out birds and bring them back as intact as possible to the hunter.

    The Fila is uniquely prized for its ojeriza, loosely translated as fierce disgust for strangers. This makes the dog nearly impossible to handle by anyone but the family it was raised by, which makes it the ideal guard dog in a largely lawless country.

    The Fila is not a pet, in the sense that pets should be approachable by anyone at anytime, and tolerate any handling — which is a foolish mindset to begin with, and one that is responsible for the majority of incidents that lead to a dog’s destruction.

    Morons who try to make a pet out of the Fila are the dangerous ones. The dog itself is an excellent breed, for the extremely few people on the planet that need and can handle one. I admire them in much the same way I admire a draft horse or a bull — neither of which you’d take for a walk in the park, or let your kids run up to and fondle just because they think it’s cute.

    Righteo – whites are little psychopaths.

    The actual answer is that whites suffer from pathological altruism, and they are easy to hoax. Whites, especially during the last ice ages, evolved for guilt. Asians, also an ice age people, evolved for shame.

    Guilt and Shame are both methods used for creating group cohesion. If you didn’t get along with the group, you died in the harsh winter.

    Good luck trying to guilt a north eastern asian about poor negroes, boo-hoo, they won’t give two shits.

    Various brown and black peoples are now getting on the Jewish bandwagon, and trying to hoax and guilt whitey about slavery, or whatever else they can conjure up in their fevered imaginations.

    Multiculturalism is a failed experiment, as in-groups are easy to form based on ethnicity, to then set people groups against each other. Apparently, white people as a group, are weak and cannot stand up for themselves; their “individualism” is a weakness against tribes that band together instinctively.

  174. I have some sympathy for the recent tendency to kick the Yanks in the taint for their slave-owing period – even though my maternal (Māori) ancestors owned slaves at around about the same time.

    The key difference is the long Yanklish custom of self-righteously droning on and fucking on about how fucking civilised y’all are/were – ‘light unto the nations’, ‘bastion of liberty and democracy’ and all that self-hagiographic bullshit.

    If y’all had given it a fucking rest for ten consecutive minutes at any time during the last three centuries – and owned the thing warts and all – there would be less tendency to call y’all out for the fucking hypocrisy (and, y’know, the other stuff… the wilful genocide and shit).

    Māori didn’t pretend to be doing slaves a favour; nor did the Barbary pirates.

    (As an aside: Māori also don’t shrink from the evidence that they wiped out (and ate) the previous inhabitants of Ao Tea Roa; not that they’re proud of it, but to use the modern Yanklish apophthegm, “it is what it is” – don’t sugar coat it, don’t resile from it, but recognise that it’s shit that’s no longer a ‘thing we do’… but it did give good, uncontested title to the place LOL).

    Among the Euro-mutts there is abundant written material – as far back as the Ancient Greeks – regarding how being enslaved was pretty much the luck of the draw, so shouldn’t be used by slaveowners as evidence of inherent superiority.

    Yet here we sit – in the early 21st century – with Yanks of a certain persuasion trying tu quoque as their defence to the ‘original sin’ charge.

    It’s weak cope. It’s ‘original sin‘ because y’all set y’all-selfs up as paragons of virtue, then did the same shit as everyone else did (and kept doing it for two generations after the Euromutts mostly gave up slavery without a gigantic fratricidal bloodbath).

    When a paragon falls, it’s a tragedy (canonically); when a fake paragon falls, it’s open season for taint-kicking.

    Far better to be honest (like the Jews are among themselves) and fucking own it – and perhaps say “Oh, we were cunts, alright. We realise that now . It was a bad, and we won’t do it anymore‘… instead of being dishonest (like the Jews are among the Gentiles) and trying to pretend that it doesn’t represent a period of appalling hypocrisy.

    Tu quoque is a shitful defence if your entire schtick is that you’re better than everyone else because some 18th century oligarchs wrote some florid propaganda about liberty&shit. (When the Frogs had ‘Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité’ on all their stationery, they abolished slavery, including in their colonies; they reconstituted it in 1804 under Napoleon)

    I specifically exclude Tom Paine from this rant, because Paine was an Abolitionist before it was cool. I’m ‘conflicted’ about Jefferson: his early life was pretty clean, but he dropped Paine like a hot potato when Paine decided that Washington as a fuckwit.

    In the antebellum South “free” labour from both whites and blacks was often cheaper than slave labour and was to remain so for long. The advantage of having slaves rather resided in the possibility it offered to lead an aristocrat’s life, of the kind one could have in Europe only having serfs or free peasants even more devoted to the local lord’s happiness than serfs were or had been.

    Most of society had to pedal exercise bikes in order to earn ‘merits’ (a currency).

    I do not know about Arab lands and America but we have some great information about how slaves were treated in the British Empire.
    Slavery in the Caribbean
    From “Tropical Colonization: An Introduction to the Study of the Subject” by Alleyne Ireland, published in 1899 by Macmillan

    “In the meanwhile steps were taken in the colonies for the amelioration of the condition of the slaves. I have before me the Slave Laws of Jamaica passed in 1816, and some of the provisions are interesting as affording a view of the legal restraints placed upon planters in their relations with the slaves. Under this law the slaves were entitled to one day free from labor in every fortnight in addition to every Sunday. If the slaves did not receive at least twenty-six such free days in a year, the owner was liable to a fine of £20. No sugar mills were to be worked between the hours of seven o’clock on Saturday night and five o’clock on Monday morning, under a penalty of £20. Owners of slaves were compelled to give each slave a plot of land for the growing of provisions, or else to supply each slave with food to the value of 3s. 8d. weekly, under a penalty of £50; and slave-owners who failed to provide their slaves with proper and sufficient clothing, to the satisfaction of a justice of the peace, were liable to a fine of £100.
    A statement on oath was required every year from each slave-owner in regard to the food and clothing supplied and the condition of the negroes’ provision grounds.

    If any slave-owner turned away a slave because of sickness, age, or infirmity, he became liable to a heavy fine and imprisonment in default of payment. The hours of labor for slaves in the field were fixed by law at a maximum of eleven and a half hours, except during crop time, and a penalty of £50 was attached to a breach of the law in this respect. Any person killing a slave was to suffer death, no alternative sentence being included in the law; and any person who cruelly whipped or otherwise maltreated a slave, or was in any way party to such an offence, was liable to a fine of £ 100 and imprisonment for twelve months.

    In 1826 the law was amended in several respects. The right was conferred on the slaves of owning property. Carnal knowledge of a female slave under ten years of age and rape on any female slave were made punishable by death. In the case of any slave charged with a capital offence the parish in which the trial took place was compelled to provide such slave with a legal adviser, the expense to fall on the parish funds.

    In the other British slave colonies laws were in force similar to those of Jamaica. I need only give one more instance. An Order-in-Council dated November 2, 1831, was the basis of the slave law in British Guiana. Every owner or manager of slaves had to provide once a year “ to each male slave of the age of fifteen years or upwards, one hat of chip, straw, or felt, or other more durable material, one cloth jacket, two cotton check shirts, two pairs of oznaburg trousers, one blanket, two pairs of shoes, one knife, and one razor. To every female slave of the age of thirteen or upwards, one chip or straw hat, two gowns or wrappers, two cotton check shifts, two oznaburg petticoats, two pairs of shoes, one blanket, and one pair of scissors.” The food to be given to the slaves was also specified. The manager or owner had the choice of giving each slave above the age of fifteen, half an acre of land suitable for growing provisions, and providing him or her, as the case might be, with all the necessary seeds and implements of husbandry for the cultivation of the plot (every child under fifteen years of age to receive a quarter of an acre); or of supplying each slave over ten years of age with twenty pints of wheat flour, or of the flour of Guinea or Indian corn, or fifty-six grown plantains, or fifty-six pounds of yams, and in addition seven salted herrings or shads, or other salted provisions, weekly. All offences on the part of slaves were divided into four classes, containing in all thirty heads, and the punishment for each offence was specified. Records
    were to be kept of every punishment inflicted, and such records, together with all others required under the law, were to be open to the Protector of Slaves, who was empowered to visit any estate without warning and had free access to the slaves at all times
    . The slaves had the right to leave any estate without permission if they wished to lay complaints before the Protector. All complaints were immediately investigated by the Protector or one of his subordinates.

    Every owner of forty slaves was compelled to engage the services of a medical practitioner, who had to inspect all the slaves under his care at least once a fortnight, and keep a journal in which the results of such inspections were to be entered. Special provision was made in the law that husband and wife, parent and child could not be separated from each other without their own free will and consent, and the following extract from the law shows how minute was the legislation on this point — the extract refers to women who might be detained in confinement for any offence — “ Provided always, and I do hereby order and direct, that if any woman in confinement shall be at the time giving suck to a child, the said child shall be duly sent in, at the proper periods, to its mother for that purpose.” ”

    “As slavery was abolished in 1838 throughout the British colonies, it is impossible for me to speak from personal observation of the treatment of the slaves, and it is necessary, therefore, in order to gain some idea of the’ operation of the slave laws, to consult the works of contemporary writers. No writer on the history of the West Indies has a higher reputation than Bryan Edwards, whose “ History, Civil and Commercial, of the British Colonies in the West Indies,” the first edition of which was published in 1793, and the fourth and last in 1807, remains to this day the most complete and admirable work on the history of the West Indies up to the early years of the present century.

    I feel that I cannot do better than transcribe a few pages from this work, as my readers will thus receive at first hand the result of observations made just prior to the abolition of slavery by an intelligent and unprejudiced inquirer.

    “ The gang is summoned to the labors of the field either by a bell or the blowing of a conch shell just before sunrise. They bring with them, besides their hoes or bills, provisions for breakfast; and are attended by a White person, and a Black superintendent called a driver. The list being called over and the names of all the absentees noted, they proceed with their work until eight or nine o’clock, when they sit down in the shade to breakfast, which is prepared in the meantime by a certain number of women, whose sole employment it is to act as cooks for the rest. This meal commonly consists of boiled yams, eddoes, ocra, calalue and plantains, or as many of those vegetables as they can procure; seasoned with salt and cayenne pepper; and, in truth, it is an exceeding palatable and wholesome mess. By this time most of the absentees make their appearance, and are sometimes punished for their sluggishness by a few stripes of the driver’s whip. But I am happy to say that of late years a very slight excuse is generally admitted. … At breakfast they are seldom indulged more than half or three quarters of an hour; and having resumed their work, continue in the field until noon, when the bell calls them from labor. They are now allowed two hours of rest and refreshment; one of which is commonly spent in sleep. Their dinner is provided with the addition of salted or pickled fish, of which each Negro receives a weekly allowance. Many of them, however, preferring a plentiful supper to a meal at noon, pass the hours of recess, either in sleep, or in collecting food for their pigs and poultry, of which’ they are permitted to keep as many as they please; or perhaps a few of the more industrious will employ an hour-in their provision grounds. … At sunset, or very soon after, they are released for the night . . . and if the day has been wet, or their labour harder than usual, they are sometimes
    indulged with an allowance of rum. On the whole, as the length of the day in the latitude of the West Indies differs very little throughout the year, I conceive they are employed daily about ten hours in the service of their master, Sundays and holidays excepted. In the crop season, however, the system is different; for at that time, such of the Negroes as are employed in the mill and boiling-houses often work very late, frequently all night; but they are divided into watches, which relieve each other, according to the practice among seamen; and it is remarkable, that at this season the Negroes enjoy higher health and vigor than at any other period of the year; a circumstance undoubtedly owing to the free and unrestrained use which they are allowed to make of the ripe canes, the cane-liquor, and syrup. … On the whole, notwithstanding some defects, let allowance be made for the climate and soil, and it may be asserted with truth and modesty, that, if the situation of the slaves in the British West Indies were, in all cases, on a level with their circumstances in regard to food, lodging, and medical assistance, they might be deemed objects of envy to half the peasantry of Europe. … At the same time let it not be forgotten, that the legislative authority in many of the sugar islands, has been, and still is, most humanely and laudably exerted in exalting the condition of the slave in all respects, and circumscribing the power of the master. . . . That the narratives therefore of excessive whippings, and barbarous mutilations, which have lately awakened the sympathy of the public, are all of them absolutely false; — though it has been asserted by others shall not be asserted by me. If they have happened but seldom , they have happened too often.
    The difference between me, and those who, on this ground, continue to urge the necessity of an immediate and total suppression of the slave trade, is this: they assert that it is not unfrequent, but common , the occurrence of every hour, to behold the miserable Negroes fall victims to a series of cruelties of which no other age or country affords an example; and they maintain that the planters in general are guilty of these cruelties, without commiseration or remorse. I, on the other hand, aver that, although such enormities have certainly sometimes happened, and may happen again, yet that the general treatment of the Negroes in the British West Indies is mild, temperate, and indulgent; and that instances of cruelty are not only rare, but always universally reprobated when discovered; and when susceptible of legal proof, severely punished.”
    The author then cites instances of the punishment of white slave-owners for offences against their slaves. Amongst others are the following:—

    Jamaica, 1777: Thomas Fell found guilty of an assault on a negro slave and sentenced to pay a fine of £20, and to be imprisoned in the common jail one week, and until payment of the fine.

    Jamaica, 1786: George Geddes was found guilty of cruelly beating and maiming two slaves, and was sentenced to a fine of £100 for each slave, and to be imprisoned for six months, and afterward to find securities for his good behavior.

    Grenada, 1776: A white man (name not given) was convicted of the murder of his own slave, and executed. “

    Euro-colonial trade in African slaves was bad. So noted. But–American slavery has been abolished for 150 years. De jure segregation of the slaves’ descendants ended 50-some years ago. What’s more, the past 50-some years have seen a vast and immensely costly effort at a palliative politics that seem to have no end in sight, and the dubious benefits of which for the “common good” are debated on this site and elsewhere every day.

    I remember Prof Gates series on African civilization, the episode on the Dahomey of West Africa, who were big in the slave trade, where the Dahomey scholar told him that in Dahomey culture, gaining more power and conquests was considered a good thing for Dahomey Kings. That is how Dahomey royalty were brought up. The Dahomey were an Aztec type civilization. Then a guy from Benin (who looked like Brazilian football legend Pele) told him that those black Africans sold as slaves were lucky or else most likely they would ahve been sacrificed to the Gods.
    I think western libtards are trying to push this Western concept of morality on non-Western societies, and trying to shame the West to a high impossible and suicidal standard of morality. They are on the look out for Shangri-las and utopias. The fact that the emotions and day dreams of these childish people have so much influence on human affairs is scary.

    I am not sure that is correct. Slavery was common throughout multiple societies in human history. Unless we can make comprehensive comparisons with evidence of nearly all historical human societies, this is a heavy charge to put on Muslim civilization. Many Hindus were enslaved by Islamic conquerors and suffered a lot, entire villages abandoned. But at the same time there were other Muslim rulers who were very tolerant. Thus even thought we Hindus did suffer under Islamic invasions, I would not put such a heavy charge on Muslim history.
    But I suspect overall, Western civilization did treat slaves reasonably well. Sure there were some bad incidents but overall compared to most human civilization colonial western civilization treated slaves far better. One thing about Muslim civilization is that many Arab Muslims would marry black slave women and the child would be an equal Muslim under Islamic law. Sure some racism might have still existed against them as is human nature but under Islamic law, these children would get all the rights as an Arab Muslim.

  187. There is so much that is good about the video, but it fails to answer its own question because it ignores the the founding creed of America, the notable advantages/talents of blacks(especially in the age of hedonistic pop culture), and the dominant power of Jews in current America. Once those matters are addressed, the truth is plainly visible. It should indeed be obvious WHY American Slavery has come to be regarded as a special evil unlike all others.

    Though Jared Taylor is far more honest than most commentators on controversial topics, he tends to shy away from open discussion of Jewish power/influence, the black athletic/sexual threat, and the contradictions of the American Creed(and history). It is then hardly surprising that for much of the video, he goes into Pat Condell mode and dumps on Muslims and their brutal histories regarding conquests, slavery, and atrocities. Not being an expert on Muslim history, I defer to Taylor’s knowledge on the subject. But why doesn’t Taylor mention the Jewish role in slavery as well? Surely, Jews practiced slavery as much as any other people. According to Thomas Sowell, Jews played a prominent role in European slave trade in the Middle Ages. Jews sold plenty of white Europeans to Arabs and the like. (Jews also collaborated with Muslim conquerors of Southern Europe.)
    New World Slavery also had considerable input from Jews, especially in Brazil that brought over the most number of slaves. (Taylor says 12 million black slaves were brought to the New World. In college, I was taught that Brazil brought over 3 million slaves, and that was more than in all the rest of the New World colonies combined. So, I’m thinking the number had to have been less than 6 million.) Why does Taylor spare the Jews? He’s been attacked, ostracized, and slandered by Jews and also removed from social media platforms and banking services. What does he have to lose at this point? Is he afraid that Jews will hurt him even more? Or, is he a starry-eyed seeker of the Great White Jew, the hope that Jews, being white(enough) and possessed of high IQ, will finally come over to the White Side as the intellectual engine of White Power? Well, he can keep dreaming, but reality seems otherwise.

    Whatever Muslims may have done in the past(as slave-masters of captured blacks and whites), they are hardly the authors of the current Western demise. While Muslim immigrants may cause problems in Europe, Muslims themselves haven’t controlled the powerful institutions that persuaded and browbeat Europeans into welcoming endless tides of non-white immigrants. White Politicians in Europe aren’t generally beholden to Muslims. Rather, they take their cues from Jews who have near-monopolistic sway over media, academia, legal institutions, finance, and other centers of power. Jews also control the gods that make whites fear and tremble at the altars of Anne Frank and Nelson Mandela. And even though Muslims practiced White Slavery and exploited white women as sex slaves, so have the Jews.

    Furthermore, Jews are the biggest White Slavers in the world today, even though they now do it legally. Jews control pop culture & pornography and use them to promote Jungle Fever and ACOWW(Afro-Colonization of White Wombs). Jews encourage cucky-wuckery among white men who are now reduced to cheering every instance of white woman ditching white man and going with blacks. Somehow, whites remaining faithful to their own race and having white children for white posterity is ‘racist’ even for mainstream ‘conservatives’. Hardly surprising as both ‘liberals’ and ‘conservatives’ are utterly taken with the dogmas, idols, and narratives pushed by Jews who control academia and media. While this isn’t slavery in the technical sense, it is in a deeper sense: Biological Slavery. After all, white women are going with black men and having black children not for color-blind reasons but interracist ones that say black men are the Real Men(with more muscle, bigger penises, and thicker voices) whereas white men are a bunch of slow flabby pansies whose role is to turn ‘gay’ and cuck to blacks. Jews don’t so much push colorblind ‘anti-racism’ as interracism as a form of ‘neo-racism’, a proggy kind that says whites should mix with blacks not because race is just a social construct but because blacks are the superior race that deserves to lord over whites. And of course, in the relation between Jews and White Goyim is the unspoken faith that whites should serve Jews precisely because Jews are superior in intelligence(IQ), spirituality(the Chosen), and/or morality(eternally noble and saintly victims of ‘antisemitism’).

    But Jared Taylor will not touch on these issues. It’s likely he avoids matters related to Jungle Fever and the like because his formative years were more uptight about sexual matters, especially when pertaining to race. Still, Taylor has held nothing back in detailing black criminality and thuggery, their psychopathy and lower intelligence. On the matter of Jews, perhaps there is a kind of proto-boomerish sentimentality, as whites in the past grew up at a time when Jews hadn’t yet consolidated their control of America and shown their true face. And it could be Taylor has had lifelong Jewish friends in the HBD community whom he’s afraid to offend. It could be the hope for the Great White Jew. Or, despite having lost so much as the result of Jewish Power, perhaps he could lose even more, not even being able to hold his beloved American Renaissance conferences. At any rate, his reluctance to fully address the Jewish Question or JQ hinders him from a complete evaluation of what is really going on in the world, e.g. why has American Slavery come to be seen as a unique evil?

    There are three key factors to be considered as to why the AMERICAN Slavery has become the focus of intense moral condemnation.

    [MORE]

    1. Jewish Factor. True, there were strong pro-black sympathies throughout US history, even before Jews arrived in large waves as immigrants. Before the Civil War, a Jew in America was more likely to be pro-Confederate and even own slaves. Abolition Movement had many fiery radicals fueled mostly by Christian moral outrage(that later became one of the pillars of the Prohibition Movement). Even many non-extremists thought slavery was a stain on America as a political and social project. And many whites in the North supported the war against the South to preserve the Union. The mindset was both nationalist and imperialist, as US was a nationalist outgrowth of British imperialism and spawned an imperialism of its own that spanned ever westward. A project committed to gaining more territory wasn’t about to lose huge areas of the South, no more than the French were willing to let go Indochina and Algeria in the post-WWII period.
    At any rate, prior to Jewish takeover of the US, there was a more balanced understanding of the struggle, war, and tensions between North and South. Being Anti-Slavery wasn’t the same as being Anti-White, an unimaginable concept at the time. Most Northerners didn’t want Southern whites to be terrorized by feral blacks. And even most anti-slavery whites in the North didn’t believe in absolute racial equality between whites and blacks. If anything, the Republican Party soon became the conservative party of Anglo-American elites, big business, and the ever-expanding state.
    Also, Northerners gave Southerners their due. Even if the South fought for a lost cause(that deserved to lose), they fought with courage and honor. Consider the sympathetic treatment of the South in John Ford’s HORSE SOLDIERS. Dwight Eisenhower wrote glowingly of General Robert E. Lee. Before Jews took power in the academia and media to tip the scale, White America was, more or less, evenly balanced between conservative and liberal voices, with a modicum of mutual respect between the two.

    But Jews did gain elite power in the US, and this had huge implications. Now, it’s likely that many idealistic leftist Jews(when they were sincerely ideological) believed in the Boasian notion that Race is a social construct. Given their own struggles against goy prejudice(and explosions of violence), they felt special sympathies for non-whites and convinced themselves that the real dividing line between whites and blacks was mostly skin color, which could be overcome with social conditioning. (As things worked out, it didn’t work because, while whites increasingly kept their side of the bargain, blacks failed ever more with theirs. Whites made an effort to become ever less ‘racist’, but this made blacks even more stereotypically uninhibited in aggression, violence, obnoxiousness, and ludicrousness, even to the point of a rapper calling himself Ludicris. But because whites traditionally held power over blacks, the assumption is the racial solution is entirely contingent on white improvement because whites control everything, whereas blacks are mere hapless victims with no sway over anything. Perhaps, this made sense at one time, but it no longer does, as blacks have plenty of power over many communities, even huge areas of big cities and key states. While one can blame the abusive parent for the problems of a young child, such lopsided moral aspersion is untenable when the child is a big teenager with considerable leeway in behavior and prone to delinquency. We are now at the stage where the black ‘teen’ is beating up the white ‘parent’, but we are still supposed to blame only whitey while pretending blacky is an innocent skittles-munching child.)

    At any rate, Jews rule America, and Jews have thought long and hard about the essential pillars of their power. Jews know they got the talent but not the numbers to maintain the empire. They need white support. THIS is the main reason why Jews use blackness as the bullwhip against white identity, interests, pride, and freedom. Jews fear White Liberation more than anything, just like the British who regarded India as their ‘jewel in the crown’ feared the stirrings of Indian nationalism and resistance movement for independence. Of course, one could say Jews are being paranoid. Most whites are okay with Jews, and a whole lot of them are totally crazy about them. Jews, Jews, Jews, Israel, Israel, Israel. Whites love Anne Frank, Albert Einstein, and Jerry Seinfeld. But, Jews figure things can suddenly go south. Jews feel that much of white sympathy for Jews hinges on the Shoah, and perhaps its effect will fade over the years. Furthermore, Jews know themselves all too well. They know there are many wicked/crooked ones among them. Now, if good Jews were to flush out the bad ones, something like ‘antisemitism’ might not flare up. But Jews know they tend to circle the wagons. Good Jews(or better Jews) give cover to Bad Jews. Also, even Good Jews aren’t good all the time and need bad Jews to do the dirty work, like with the respectable eye doctor in Woody Allen’s CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS who calls on his gangster brother to deal with the woman problem. This means that Jewish Power will grow more corrupt and gangsterish. It means that even whites who’d been partial to Jews may grow increasingly suspicious of them. They might become ‘red-pilled’. The fact is, when push comes to shove, even Good Jews have chosen to side with Bad Jews than side with Good Goyim. Ideally, good whites and good Jews should be united against bad whites and bad Jews. Jews have, over the years, goaded good whites to denounce bad whites and make common cause with good Jews and good non-whites. And many good whites have done just that. But have good Jews reciprocated by denouncing bad Jews? No.
    Now, if good Jews don’t denounce the bad Jews, aren’t good Jews also bad Jews? When the good aids and abets the bad, what’s the difference? Where is the Jewish outrage over Jonathan Pollard’s release? Where is the Liberal Jewish outrage over what’s been done to Palestinians? To morally cover for this contradiction, Jews have increasingly fused morality with identity politics. Goodness is less a matter of what you do than what you are. So, the mere fact of BEING Jewish is good. Never mind what Zionists have DONE to Palestinians or millions of Arabs. Jews are good because they are Jews, who are forever to be associated with the Holy Holocaust, timeless wisdom, genius(that is such a benefit to mankind, like the latest Covid ‘vaccines’), and crowd-pleasing humor. So, never mind what Jews do. Just dwell on what they are. They are Jews, and that means they are good. And if you praise and bless Jews, you too must be good or better than those who don’t. Result is moral rot.
    It means good Jews should embrace bad Jews because the mere fact of Jewishness is good. So, even bad Jews are good simply for being Jewish. But in having embraced and protected bad Jews, even good Jews have made themselves bad. And the Jewish community, in insisting that goyim embrace and praise Jewishness on the basis of identity alone, have spread the moral rot to goyim as well. Most goyim never pay attention to Jewish behavior, actions, or impact on the world. The mere fact of Jewishness alone is synonymous with morality. “I have Jewish friends” makes you automatically better than those without Jewish friends, just like being Jewish makes you automatically better than being a mere goy. When morality turns into idolatry, morality turns into ethno-nihilism. Take the latest GOP yapping about Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream and West Bank. The ice cream company made its decision on the basis of Jewish behavior. Jews are occupying West Bank and tyrannizing the people there, who continue to lose land to Jewish ‘settlers’. It isn’t ‘antisemitic’ in the sense of targeting Jews simply because they are Jewish. The company policy is based on Jewish behavior. But, GOP-tards are howling like it’s the biggest moral outrage simply because it was done against Jews. According to GOP-tards, being Jewish alone is enough to end the debate. Jews are right because they are Jews, just like God is always right because He is God. So, even though Jews are stealing Palestinian land, Jews are morally correct simply because they’re Jewish whereas Palestinians are evil scum who dare to resist Jewish expropriation of their lands and property.

    Now, a kind of ‘morality’ that is skewed toward favoring one group over another based solely on identity sounds like the classic definition of ‘racism’. After all, if ‘anti-racism’ is the law of the land, all groups should be judged by the same set of rules. Then, why aren’t Jews condemned for their actions against Palestinians? Why do Jews, who howl most about ‘racism, racism, racism’, of whites of course, demand that white goyim support what Jews do to the Palestinians simply because being Jewish makes Jews right? And why do Jews get away with this, as both most Republican and Democratic voters hardly raise a fuss about their political representatives shamelessly whoring themselves out to Zion? Fish rots from the head, and Jewish elite power has corrupted the moral health of America. Jews have done a bait-and-switch on whites. Jews pressured whites to abandon any vestige of white identity/interests and go for colorblind ethics for all, regardless of creed or color. But these very same Jews will shriek and howl if any white(or goy) says America should treat Jews and Palestinians equally with the same set of rules. Given the sheer hypocrisy of this, one would think whites would have caught on, but no. Why not? Because most whites rely on their leaders, elites, and representatives to tell them what is what, and most whites-at-the-top are bought-off and/or blackmailed whores of Zion. The other is the power of myth. As most whites grew up with Holocaust Mythology, Anne Frank Cult, and so many movies & TV shows were Arabs/Muslims are little more than swarthy terrorists or white-slavers, their emotionality favors Jews and Zionists over Arabs and Muslims. And as Jews control the news media, most Americans get a very warped view of Middle East affairs.

    ‘Idolatrism’ is the new ‘racism’. This is why even Jewish Liberals are really Triberals, i.e. it’s about the use of Liberalism to ultimately serve Jewish Tribalism. If white ‘racism’ was about favoring whites over non-whites on the basis of whiteness alone, ‘idolatrism’ is about favoring Jews, blacks, and homos over all other groups regardless of their deeds, action, or behavior. This is obvious with blacks. They burn, loot, and create havoc, but they are always moral saints. The notion that some creep like George Floyd would be considered a saint or angel would have been laughable in an earlier time, but it is reality today.
    Now, it’s true that certain groups underwent special tragedies in the modern era. So, one could sympathize with the victims of those tragedies. But to permanently affix tragic dimensions onto a group can only lead to moral nihilism. We can sympathize with Chinese of the Nanking Massacre period and with millions of Russians who died in World War II. But does the fact that many millions of innocent Chinese and Russians died mean that today’s Chinese and Russians are automatically noble and saintly on the basis of identity and above moral opprobrium when they do bad? Sounds absurd, but such are the rules in the West in regards to Jews, blacks, and homos.
    A major fallacy is to confuse victimhood with virtue. Most human tragedies weren’t the result of saintliness, nobility, or martyrdom but of pure-and-simple defeat to the bigger power. American Indians didn’t lose because they were noble pacifists who turned the other cheek. They lost because whites had the numbers and more guns. Blacks became slaves not because they were meek and humble but because they got captured by bigger African tribes who sold them for gold to white slave ships. While tragedies suffered by Christian saints resulted from pious acts of self-sacrifice, most human tragedies were really the result of one set of bullies losing to a stronger set of bullies. Japanese and Germans faced great tragedies in WWII, but they were in the fight, often as initiators. Also, while the Shoah was horrific, it was an extreme and fanatical reaction to lots of bad Jewish behavior. Jews weren’t saintly victims but often a**hole victims. This doesn’t excuse Hiroshima or the Holocaust, but it was not a case of wholly innocent and saintly people being killed for the hell of it.
    Not only are we supposed to believe that Jews bear NO RESPONSIBILITY for the Shoah, but we are supposed to believe that all Jews everywhere forever and ever are akin to Anne Frank regardless of what they do. Saying that Jews deserve partial blame for the Shoah isn’t the same as blaming-the-victim. If a woman minding her own business is attacked and raped in a park, she is blameless. Blaming her would be blaming the victim. But if someone in the park taunts and provokes others to the point where someone finally has had enough and beats him to a pulp, he is partly to blame. Given Jewish role in communism, financial capitalism, and cultural degradation leading up to WWII, yes, Jews do deserve some blame for what happened to them, just like Germans and Japanese must take some blame for the destruction of their nations in WWII. Sadly, Jews, in their Holocaust-moral-megaloamania, have learned nothing and are once again spreading filth and craziness all around the world with zero self-awareness that they themselves may be at the epicenter of world troubles. And the cucks play along and pretend all the problem stems from China or Iran(if the cuck is ‘conservative’) OR from Russia or ‘white supremacists'(if the cuck is ‘liberal’). And of course, blacks deserve some blame for the rot in their communities, but the current ‘idolatrism’ says that they are totally and eternally blameless(just like Jews and homos), and all the blame must go to whitey.

    Unless Jews are judged for what they do than for what they are, ‘idolatrism’ is the order of the day in the US, and it is virtually identical with what is called ‘racist’. The only difference is Jews have associated their identity with historical tragedy. Thus, one could say they are not favored for their ‘skin color’. Rather, they are favored for their Memory. But morally pasting the past to the present to excuse bad behavior is just another kind of prejudice. In some ways, it is worse because Jews are invoking morality to act immoral. “Because Nazis treated us badly, we can act like Nazis and treat others the same way.” Jews denounce ‘white supremacism’ not to attack supremacism as a general principle but to buttress Jewish supremacism.
    Likewise, blacks complain about how white ‘racists’ in the past done stereotyped them as savage apelike thugs as a moral excuse to act like, well, savage apelike thugs prone to looting, robbing, beating, hollering, raping, murdering, shooting, and acting demented. But because we are supposed to judge blacks on the basis of Memory, they are forever the saintly slave-victim even when they use their advantage in muscle and natural aggression to terrorize entire communities. Blackkks are the main thugs and lynch mobs in America.
    And of course, even though homos spread HIV and died from too many wild orgies of homo-fecal-penetration in bath-houses, parks, and wherever, they are not to be judged, lest one be denounced as ‘homophobic’. More ‘idolatrism’.

    To better understand Jews and whites, suppose you’re a rancher and have a variety of animals. You have a horse, a dog, a hedgehog, a frog, a monkey, a turtle, a cow, a goose, a chicken, a goat, a sheep, a hawk, a gopher, a deer, and etc. Which animal would you value most? Which animal would you be most mindful about having control over? It’s most probably the horse. It’s the most powerful and the most useful animal. Dog would be second, but you can’t ride a dog or use it for plowing. Not only is the horse most powerful but it’s also naturally fierce and independent(and least fearful of small man). A horse naturally wants to run free. And it surely doesn’t want to carry a man on its back. Also, if it goes out of control, it can do most harm. One kick from a horse can turn a man’s brains to mush.
    In contrast, take a hedgehog. It is hardly of any use to man. It might be fun to have around as a pet. Also, even if a hedgehog acts out of order, what could it do? It can’t harm, let alone kill, a man. Turtle might be put in a pond. Maybe it can be made into turtle soup. Again, it’s hardly of any use to man, and there’s no concern about its behavior. A goat-gone-bad might be troublesome, but even a bad goat isn’t much of a threat to man. Also, goats aren’t very useful for anything but producing goat milk. But the horse is very useful, and it must be made to obey and follow instructions. The well-being of the rancher counts so much on his control of the horse.

    Jews see whites as the White Horse or the War Horse of Jewish Power. Without whites in the military, state, industries, and institutions to run things, Jews could only do so much. And among whites, Northern European whites are most prized. Indeed, would Jews have taken over the world without saddling on top of the Northern European horse? Anglo/Germanics are the prize stallion of Jewish Power. That is why Jews do everything to make sure that white people(especially Anglo-Germanics) obey and follow Jews. But carrots aren’t enough. Jews have a lot of money, but money only goes so far. Japan spread a lot of money around in the 80s, and China does the same today, but they can only buy favors, not loyalty. And the stick isn’t enough either, especially as Jews themselves don’t have the military and/or police muscle to beat all whites into compliance. If they did, like with the Palestinians, Jews would probably rely less on ‘white guilt’. After all, Jews know they got the stick of military power to crush Palestinians and don’t bother to instill Pallies with ‘Arab Guilt’. But Jews can’t do to whites what they do handily with Palestinian men, women, and children. And that is why Jews use power of media and academia to instill white souls with ‘white guilt’. THAT is why the subject of American Slavery has come to loom so large. Historically, Latin America enslaved many more blacks, but for the time being, Jews need Latinos as allies against the gringos and yanquis, and so the Narrative on Latin America is, “all the races are so wonderfully mixed, and there is hardly any racism down there, and all is forgiven and forgotten.” History is often a game of selectivity. It’s not about all that happened but about picking and choosing and shaping narratives to serve the power and agenda of the group that gets to select them.

    2. American Credo factor.

    Jared Taylor has often said that the Founders envisioned America as an outgrowth of Europe, especially the Anglospheric World and parts of Germania. The Founders also believed it would be a Christian nation despite the absence of an official religion or state church.
    But the American Credo was chockful of contradictions from day one. Despite the social realities and personal preferences of the Founders(and the peoples back then), there were powerful tendencies in the American Vision that directed the national future toward universalism and globalism. There wasn’t a single credo but competing credos. Some were merely sensed or taken for granted, whereas others were written down as laws and principles. And when one looks at the Constitution, pro-whiteness isn’t spelled out. Perhaps, the Founders didn’t need to write it down because it was taken for granted. But on the other hand, perhaps the Christian impulse and Enlightenment Values of the time gravitated toward a larger definition of Americanism. So, while the details of Americanism at the founding(and for a century and half) was Anglo-American, Eurocentric, and pro-white, the overarching goal aimed at something bigger. Also, universalism has a loftier perch than particularism. Enlightenment was credo-imperialist in wanting to unite the world with the power of reason and science. Christianity had the missionary zeal of converting the world and saving souls of all peoples. So, despite the many particularist realities of the American founding and history, there was a semi-utopianism that was either idealist or invoked idealism to justify the ambition for more conquest and power. Why did Christianity and Islam win out over more particularist cults and religions?

    Consider the Old Testament, full of competing narratives and credos. At times, God is peace-loving and understanding. Other times, He is angry and violent, willing to smite entire peoples. Parts of the Old Testament suggest at the need for peace and understanding between Jews and goyim. Other parts suggest Jews should crush and destroy the goyim. God has many faces in the Old Testament, and one could use it to condemn or justify slavery. After all, Jews fled from bondage from tyrannical Egypt. But Jews also owned slaves, and Jews had no laws against slavery. There are times when God is about justice. Other times, His power seems arbitrary, a matter of whim. Old Testament says God is the only God, the sole Deity for all the world and all mankind. But it also says God has a special relation with Jews. Some Jews interpreted this as God commanding Jews to be light unto all mankind. Other Jews interpreted this to mean Jews alone have souls whereas goyim are like beasts who should be treated like cattle. So, there is no single interpretation of the Old Testament. However, the fact that the Old Testament led to the New Testament and the Koran that came to profoundly impact history suggests that its universalist urge was too powerful to overcome. Of course, Jews rejected it and kept with the Covenant. But some Jews forged a new religion that argued that God is truly for all mankind and not only for Jews. After all, if there is only one God and if He is about love and justice, why shouldn’t He bestow His blessing equally unto all the peoples? And Christianity later inspired Islam, another universal faith.

    Likewise, despite the contradictions within Americanism from its founding, certain ideas were bound to gain an upper-hand over others. The Founders spoke of liberty, freedom, dignity, and equal justice of mankind in general. They were Enlightenment idealists, and most Americans had a powerful Christian impulse to save the world, extending all the way to the time when Jared Taylor was a child in Japan of Missionary Parents.
    History often depends on which elements have more charge, as in electrical charge. Suppose there are 50 of elements A and 50 of elements B. They are even-steven at the start, but suppose elements of A have more charge in them. Thus, they are more active and pull together and cause more commotion. Suppose, in coming together, they create sparks and create even more elements of A. So, A elements go from 50 to 100. In contrast, the elements of B have less charge. They are less active and manage to produce only 10 more of its kind. Over time, it’s 100 A vs 60 B. Why did America achieve so much more than Russia since1800? Anglo-American Protestant spirit was far more charged than the Russian soul mired in Orthodox Byzantinism.
    Some ideas are dry, some are wet. Some are cold, some are hot. The combination of Enlightenment Principles and Christianity(unmoored from statist controls in Old Europe) added more charge to the universalist impulses in American History. Universalists were often more aggressive and dreamy than the particularists.
    Also, universalism was a way to deal with the moral contradiction inherent in the American Enterprise. America expanded by taking lands from the Indian savages who, in some cases, were wiped out. Also, America relied on black slave labor in the South. America could have created a Constitution that specifically said Whites have the right to rule over darkies and the red man, but then, the American Project would have sounded grimly Spartan. Sparta had the brooding Spartans lording over the cowering Helots. It was a dark order. Americans wanted to feel good about themselves. After all, Jefferson spoke of the Pursuit of Happiness. They were moralists and didn’t want to feel mean and cruel. So, even though they did cruel things, they wanted to convince themselves that the American Experiment would eventually morally redeem all that had been done. If America had been founded on an island with no natives and without slave labor of another race, perhaps things would have been different. But to insist on a wholly white country in a land taken from the Red Man and labored by the Black Man and furthermore committed to the principles of freedom and fairness was something of a stretch. The very fact that blacks were allowed to become American citizens under the law meant that one didn’t need to be white to be American. If blacks could be American like the whites, who was to say peoples from other parts of the world couldn’t be Americans one day as well? Surely, whites in the 1860s had no inkling of the mass non-white immigration that would engulf the country a hundred years later, but in making blacks the equal of whites as American citizens(at least in theory), they effectively did away with the idea that only white people could be Americans.

    Another factor was that white births simply couldn’t keep up with the demands of American development. There was too much land to settle. Too many factories to fill. When Anglo and German immigrants weren’t enough, the US looked to Eastern and Southern Europe. A lot of this had to do with white Americans favoring fellow white workers than blacks, but the need to assimilate these Other Europeans further weakened the particularist elements of Americanism. With the Other Europeans also came the radicals, especially among the Jews, many of whom were anarchist or socialist. But Jews were also the most talented capitalists and gave the Anglos a run for the money. Jews wanted more immigration to bring over more of their own kind to the New Land, a more hospitable and tolerant place than the Old World. Also, the greater meritocracy in the US meant that Jews could rise faster and higher, even challenging Wasps for mastery over the nation. Then, it was in the interests of Jews to play up the universalist aspects of Americanism. And yet, the great irony is that Jews were also the most particularist people to have set foot on America. Indeed, Jews weren’t aiming to join in the melting pot but to melt the goyim into a hodge-podge so that they would be too mixed and confused to take on rising Jewish Power. The Melting Pot as Jew Stew had the Jews as the chef and the goyim as the ingredients.

    In a way, American Guiltism is the flipside of American Narcissism. It’s the one who highly regards her own beauty who sees every little blemish as an intolerable ugliness that must be expunged. The myth of American Founding had brave freedom fighters resisting and defeating the British. Americans defined themselves as free people in a republic or democracy, as opposed to Europe that was mostly dominated by kings and aristocrats(until World War I brought an end to monarchical rule). The ‘genocide’ of the Indians was spun as the great Manifest Destiny, white settlers and freedom-and-opportunity-seeking immigrant folks expanding westward to tame the wilderness and build communities fit for womenfolk and children, with schools and churches, like in THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE. The Western genre mythologized this in Hollywood. (Jewish moguls sure funded a lot of ‘genocidal’ propaganda.) Americans flattered themselves as protectors of the New World(including Central and South America) from the clutches of the Old World. (Of course, Latin America saw North America as its tormentor, but that’s another story.) And even though US had slavery, the Civil War Narrative redeemed America. Supposedly, no civilization had ever fought a war to end slavery. The US did because, when push came to shove, Americans are for freedom over bondage. Americans regarded themselves as saviors of Europe in World War I and II. And Americans were also full of themselves as the saviors of the world from communism. So, one of the running themes of Americanism was that United States wasn’t content to be just one nation among many. No, it was different. Its destiny was grander than any other nation. America was blessed with great land and resources. It was founded on freedom. It cleansed itself of the sin of slavery with the Civil War that cost so many white lives. Not only did America break free from Old tyrannical Europe but in the 20th century stretched out to defend Europe from German Imperialism, Nazism, and Soviet totalitarianism. So, in retrospect, it seemed like America was bound to be a Nation of Destiny, a superhero nation. And of course, Jews fed on this vanity. Theodore Roosevelt ate it up when Jews flattered America as a special nation. Roosevelt was among the most racially chauvinistic presidents ever. He was a kind of ‘white supremacist’ even beyond the norms of the day. But even he couldn’t resist the portrayal of America as the land of the free, a beacon of light unto the world, and all that.

    But when a people have such high regard for themselves, they’re bound to be traumatized by proof to the otherwise. It’s like the Don Henley song, “End of the Innocence”. Now, there was always plenty that was dark, violent, cruel, and crazy about America, but compared to the rest of the world, it wasn’t a bad place to be in the 19th and 20th century. In the 19th century, it was far freer than Europe that came under aristocratic rule after Napoleon’s failures. And Asia in the 19th century was the beginning of its humiliation(along with renewal). Latin America got mired in stasis and backwardness. Africa was still totally savage. And in the 20th century, even being a Negro living under Jim Crow in the US was a hell of lot better compared to what would befall the fates of those living in Ukraine, Russia, Germany, Poland, China, Turkey, and etc. So, relative to the rest of the world, America went from success to success, victory to victory. American Triumphalism became mainstay of the Narrative, and this made a lot of Americans rather naive and ‘innocent’. They got to seeing America as the land of baseball, apple pie, five-and-dime stores, and milk shakes at the local drug store. Even Jews couldn’t resist this. In Neil Simon’s BRIGHTON BEACH MEMOIRS, Jews across the ocean are facing hell, but the lead character is mainly obsessed with baseball cards and nudie photos of women. The worst thing he can imagine is eating liver and onions for dinner.

    And American Amnesia has gotten worse since the boomer 60s. At the very least, white folks prior to the boomers had it pretty tough themselves. Few grew up with privilege. Many worked on farms or factories. Or coal mines. And they had tough parents who whupped them. It’s like Pat Buchanan wrote a autobio about his father using the belt on him and his brothers like they was Negroes who ain’t picked cotton all day. So, even though many white folks could sympathize with Negroes on some level, they didn’t go overboard with ‘white guilt’ crap because their parents and they themselves had to struggle to make ends meet. They figured life was often hard for them but harder for Negroes. But since the 1960s, the boomers grew up and became huggy-wuggy parents who raised their kids in a world of plenty, leisure, narcissism, and convenience. So, unlike white folks in the past whose sympathy for Negroes was tempered by their own hard knocks in life, the Millennials are ‘triggered’ by the fact that blacks had it tough. For past whites who had it tough, blacks merely had it tougher. But for Millennials who had it so nice, it was unimaginable that anyone could have it tough. Now, if they had real knowledge of American History, they’d know that most whites didn’t have it so good. But as the academia and media are controlled by Jews, the emphasis is almost solely on black hardship(and Jews facing ‘antisemitism’ and homos persecuted by ‘homophobia’). So, Millennials don’t compare black hardship of the past with white hardship. If they did, they’d realize blacks had it worse but whites didn’t have it so good either. But because they’re only told of black hardship, they compare past black experience with their current good times. Instead of comparing black sharecroppers with whites toiling in coal mines, factories, or railroads, they compare blacks with their spoiled white selves immersed in the leisure of watching Netflix and playing video games.
    In the past, white journalists came from the school of hard knocks. They had it tough themselves. Many didn’t go to fancy schools. So, even though a good number of them were liberal-leaning and could see the fundamental unfairness faced by blacks, they didn’t feel like princes with undeserved privileges over blacks. But look at today’s Millennial journalists. They grew up in total affluence with huggy-wuggy parents who provided them with everything. They really don’t know any hardship. Many went to tony schools and rubbed shoulders with other privileged kids. So, when they read about black reality of past or present(as blacks continue to wallow in violence and misery), they just can’t believe it and go all weepy-‘woke’.

    At any rate, one of the main reasons why American Guilt came to matter more is Americanism has been founded on More Pride. Bigger they are, harder they fall. Bigger one’s pride, bigger one’s shame when the pride is pricked with evidence to the contrary. A humble man isn’t much bothered by the exposure of his failings. He will readily admit, “Nobody’s perfect.” But a man who is so full of himself as Mr. Wonderful is due for a great fall when it’s shown he’s not so wonderful.
    America calls itself EXCEPTIONAL. Well, exceptional guilt is the flipside of exceptional pride.
    Hubris is met with Nemesis, and the lesson is America was stupid to be so full of itself. But then, a less ambitious America wouldn’t have been America.

    3. The third reason as to why American Slavery came to be regarded as especially evil can be illustrated by way of the Guillermo Hypothesis. The problem isn’t slavery per se but the enslavement of blacks. Had the US enslaved another people, the guilt complex would be far less. Suppose Americans had decided to use brown natives of South America as slaves. Southern Plantations would have been packed with people who look like Guillermo(of Jimmy Kimmel Show). The slaves would have been more docile. There would have been less fear of slave rebellions. Being more docile, the Guillermo-like Gomezers would have made less trouble, and there would have been less reason to whip them. The slavery enterprise would have been less cruel.
    Furthermore, slavery might have ended sooner with Southern initiative because the Guillermos would have been less threatening than muscled Negroes with big dongs who be yapping and hollering all the time. A civil war might have been avoided. And after Emancipation, the Guillermos would have been mostly a silent minority. White Men need not have feared Maize Fever. And whites would have continued to dominate sports. Over time, whites would look back and feel sorry about brown slavery, and there would be stuff about how America owes something to the Guillermos who picked cotton and helped build the American Economy. But whites wouldn’t feel much guilt because Guillermos are, well, just a bunch of Guillermos, a mediocre bunch. So, whether Guillermos be slaves or free men, they could only amount to serving as the sidekicks of the white race.

    But it’s different with blacks because, after slavery, blacks became so prominent in sports and pop music. Also, blacks got them boombox voices that secularized white folks hear as the voice of god hisself. Even though US is vilified for its ‘racism’, the special American Guilt regarding blacks is predicated on a kind of ‘neo-racism’, the proggy kind. Subconsciously, whites feel they enslaved the superior race. They really feel this way because they hold blacks in awe in athletics, rapping, hollering, and humping. It’s the song-dong-strong-wrong dynamics. Whites are obsessed with black musicality. White youths love rap, and European elites are most into reggae. They got jungle fever for black dongs(and twerking black buns). They worship black athleticism and believe in black girl/boy magic. And that’s why what they did to blacks seem especially wrong. It’s one thing to have enslaved the Guillermos of the world, but it’s another thing to have enslaved the Muhammad Ali’s, MLK’s, Otis Redding, and Long Dong Silvers of the world. Of course, this is ‘racist’, or ‘neo-racist’. ‘Anti-racism’ would demand that guilt be equal in regard to all peoples as a matter of principle: All Men are Created Equal. While whites ideologically subscribe to such notion, their visceral sense of awe regarding blacks overwhelms any consistency in logic. But then, it’s the same in regard to Jews and Palestinians. Whites are so philosemitically smitten with Jews as geniuses and gurus that they are overly sensitive to any tragedy involving Jews but almost totally insensitive to the tribulations of Arabs/Muslims, even if they were mainly caused by Jews and their Western enablers.

    Notice whites feel almost nothing for American Indians today even though the latter are, by far, the most tragic people of the Americas and even of the entire world. (Whereas blacks still got Africa and Asians still got Asia in the aftermath of Western Imperialism, American Indians lost their homeland forever.) But it wasn’t always so. In the past, American Indians were respected as fierce warriors. Once the dust settled after the bloody and cruel Indian Wars, whites could romanticize Indians as brave warriors, fearsome and worthy foes. And so, for a time, Indians had a certain prestige in the annals of American Tragic Narrative. But with the passing of years, Indians became less visible and significant because they fail to cut it in the fields whites are most obsessed about, sports and pop culture.

    Anyway, if we combine factors of 1, 2, and 3, we can understand why America has a special guilt-fixation about black slavery. Muslim World didn’t let Jews take over elite institutions and industries. Had Jews gained such power, maybe they would have pushed ‘Muslim Guilt’ onto the young ones. Whites let Jews take over at the top. Furthermore, unlike Latin American countries that also imported black slaves(even far more than the US), the US was full of itself as the Nation of Destiny. Latin America countries were rather humdrum about their place in the world, their destinies. Americanism was predicated on becoming a world power, a nation like no other, a beacon of freedom, the one that would bring about the End of History. It was born of the contradictions inherent in British Imperialism and formulated as Enlightenment-Imperialism. America was to Britain what Christianity was to Judaism, what the Roman Empire was to Greek Civilization.

    Though the Founders were mainly focused on securing the fragile republic, the seeds were there at the beginning, and the radiant(and unrealistic) idealism outshone the racial particularism of America as a white nation, much like the sun drowns out the stars. It’s like Christianity could emerge only by going beyond Jewishness. Alexander the Great could forge his empire only by going beyond Greek power and prestige. In outlook, the Founders were in many regards temperate and modest men, but the creation mythos of America as a kind of New Eden freed from Old World tyranny was bound to have huge implications. America developed as a kind of experiment where European Civilization would start anew by planting its best ideas about freedom and dignity of man MINUS all the baggage of tradition and prejudice. Also, unlike cramped Western Europe, America seemed boundless in land and resources.
    Of late, Europeans reversed this dynamics in the post-WWII era. Increasingly, Europeans came to see America as the land of ‘racism’ with its black problem. So, by importing tons of blacks and treating them right, Europeans would start Americanism Anew in the EU but without the element of ‘racism’ and slavery. Blacks would be welcomed as free men, and they would prosper alongside white Europeans as equals. That would show the Americans what Americanism really could have been if white Americans hadn’t been so greedy and hypocritical, so ‘racist’ against blacks. But of course, whites in both US and EU are dummies because blacks are the destructive race, and it has nothing to do with laws coded in books. It’s in the coding of DNA that drives blacks to destroy whatever whites build, regardless of whether whites are kindly or meanly disposed toward blacks. But whites are doomed to fall because they are so in awe of blackness. In 2020, blacks laid waste to so many communities. They exhibited new levels of savagery and wantonness. But after all that, whites in Milwaukee are besides themselves with Negro-worship and Negro-lust because black ‘heroes’ won the basketball championship for the city. Whites are dummies, or whummies.

    There are many other examples of systemic slavery.
    The Tartars raided Eastern Europe for 400 years and took millions of slaves. All of these slaves died leaving no descendant due to inhuman treatment.
    I am from Romania and my ancestors were enslaved by Asian Tatars for hundreds of years. In Romanian folklore The Milky Way is called The Way of slaves because the slaves who tried to escape from the slavery of the Tartars had no chance of escape during the day.
    In the plains of southern Russia where the Tartars had their headquarters, the fugitive slaves had no place to hide. The Tartar riders could see many kilometers around in steppe short grassand quickly catching the slave running on foot.
    That is why the runaway slaves hide during the day in any possible place, they even buried themselves under the grass and fled only at night. At night they headed in the direction of the Milky Way from east to west.
    The way to freedom was by night in the direction of Milky Way called by the Romanians The Way of slaves. In Romanian – Calea Robilor.
    Another thing left in the collective memory of roumanian is the expression: “Do not hurry/run so hard because the Tartars are not coming.” A saying which shows how terrorized were the peasants by the tartars attacks.
    Europeans were enslaved for hundreds of years by both Africans and Asians.

    There was no “genocide of sixty million” Indians by Americans.

    There were about 1 million Indians living in what is now the continental United States.

    Learn to read, and learn to infer from what the OP said.

    genocide 60 million indigenous natives across 300 years of hatred and unprecedented violence, mostly by whites and Hispanics.

    He likely meant across the Americas as a whole (hence “whites and Hispanics”). David Stannard’s “American Holocaust” itself estimates that the deaths in the Americas exceeded 60 mil.

    The continental U.S. itself had 7 million native inhabitants, not 1 million, inhabiting every corner of the land.

    What you say about Brazil is inaccurate : life for Portuguese white peasants in the Sertao and elsewhere was always as harsh as that of negro slaves. Life expectancy for negro slave was shorter in Brazil than in North America but so was it for a White landless labourer. Without people reduced to either serfdom or slavery, however more it costs in terms of labour, you cannot enjoy an aristocratic lifestyle. Cheap labour alone cannot provide the enjoyment.

  195. d dan says:

    Sounds like a very good article of whataboutism.

    1. OK, you have convinced me that US was the 14th most savage nation in the world, and Muslims are much more ruthless. But exactly what did the article refute? Slavery is not a “sin”, not “American” or not “original?” The way I read it, it refutes none of them. Admittedly, slavery did not “originated” in America, but I suspect this is not the meaning of the word in the book (I haven’t read the book)

    2. Regarding the number of slaves, yes, US received a small fraction. But the more meaningful measure would be per-capita slave. At the height of slave trade, what was the populations of US vs the Muslim / African countries? A society of 100 millions that imported 100,000 slaves was relatively more civilized that one of a million with 50,000 slaves. Does the US ranking go up/down in term of per-capita?

    3. Going deeper, the historical context and motivation are even more important than numbers. If the cause was “that fucking xxx group had been the enemy of our people for generations, let’s attack them and enslave their people”, or “they enslaved our ancestors, so now that we are stronger, it is our turn to enslave them,” then those slavery might be understandable, or even “justified” in some ways. This is in contrast to reason like “I am too lazy to pick my cotton, so let’s kidnap some low lives faraway whom I never heard of to do my works.” I believe a lot of slavery in the world were of former type – fueled by blood debts, mistrusts, insecurity, revenge and/or historical animosity, whereas American slavery was clearly of economic and opportunistic nature with strong racial undertone. Unless the reader is willing (I don’t) to spend a lot time and tedious efforts to study and understand each society/civilization arcane or even unwritten history/context/folklore in great depth, I would advise against demonization of other cultures in your expedient defense of America – you would make American look more arrogant, insecure and stupid.

    4. And the America’s sins do come in “package”. Besides the slavery, there were also the stolen land, genocide of Native American, racism, intellectual property thefts, endless wars of aggression/war crimes, up to modern days continuous color revolutions, intervention, propaganda, lying, cheating, spying, assassination, … I know some may want to argue or rationalize some of these points, but the list is long enough that any neutral person could see the pattern. Or does anyone prefer to believe the country has transformed somehow from a saintful to a sinful state only recently? Furthermore, considering the blessed geographical location of the country, the relatively lack of historical “baggage” to build the nation, and few (or none) people/countries that had ever did serious harm to herself, America is almost certainly one of, if not the most sinful country in the world, in the scorecard of historical debts.

    5. Then there were the hypocrisy and rationalization. I don’t know other society with leaders claiming “all men are created equal” while owning hundreds or even thousands of slaves. Mississippi only ratified 13th Amendment that abolishes slavery in 2013 (not a typo), while US has called herself “land of the free” for century and loudly sells herself as beacon of hope, freedom, liberty and human rights in the world stage for a long time. And let’s not forget the modern version slavery of forced labor (enshrined in the Constitutions of some States) that is still allowed and practiced among the incarcerated or undocumented (illegal) immigrants. In terms of transparency and honesty, I would rate US to be very low in the world.

    6. Which leads me back to the purpose of the article. I do understand the motivation to write this, and the fervent supports by some. It is utterly unfair to hang a “guilty” hat on a newly born White baby of today for sins that she doesn’t even understand. The lefts are politically opportunistic to kneel in every frivolous occasions. But the right way, and the most effective way to defend against those insinuations, in my opinion, is to argue that actions and decisions are performed and made by INDIVIDUAL, not race. In so doing, the baby would be able to stand on her own and nobody would be able to put an hat on her. There would be no need for article like this one.

    7. Reciprocally, White adults need to acknowledge slavery was sinful, and Blacks were the victims. Especially offensives are some comments that claim slavery and White master were doing Blacks their “favors” – those comments are rubbing salt on wound and need to be condemned. Whites also need to abandon the collective guilt labelling of other groups (Jew-this Jew-that), including racial stereotyping of ALL Blacks as a group. Sure, Blacks crime rate is 30% compare with 5% for Whites, but so what? It still means that the majority of Blacks are law-abiding and good citizens of the country. Yes, Blacks are “low IQ”, but there are also individual Blacks who are smarter than the majority of Whites. Similarly, if White baby should not carry the guilt of their ancestors, White adults should also have nothing to brag about the inventions of Edison or Wright brother.

    8. Do Whites have the courage to embrace individuality and abandon or at least dilute their racial consciousness? I have serious doubt. Whites are likely to want the cake and still eat it. So, the reconciliation wouldn’t start and no healing of the racial rupture possible. Meanwhile, Americans would continue the infinite loop of futile and meaningless jumping between the binary “White-good” and “White-bad” echo chambers, praising in one while cursing in the other.

With this prestige, the Negro will be able to intermarry with the whites and begin a process which will deliver America to our cause.”

    I’m sure the Swedes had slaves. They were white. All the Scandinavians did.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thrall

    Not to mention the Angles and Saxons. 10% of the Domesday book population were slaves, but only 18% of the population of England were ‘free’ in modern terms. “Not a slave” didn’t mean free.

    https://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/domesday/world-of-domesday/order.htm

    The peasant tenantry was land rented out to peasants who were either free or unfree. There were four main groups who comprised the peasant tenantry. The freemen and sokemen, both free peasants, formed about 12 per cent of the population as recorded in Domesday. The unfree peasants included villans, bordars and cottars. Villans, about 40 per cent of the recorded population, were the wealthiest and most numerous of the unfree peasants. Villans could hold substantial areas of farmland, often between 30 and 40 acres, but had to work on the lord’s land for two or three days each week. On days when they were not working for the lord, peasants could work their own land or participate in other activities, such as carpentry. Unfree women might have produced items of clothing for the lord. The lord exercised other controls over unfree peasants. He could move them between estates and had the power to approve or prevent a marriage.

    In most Domesday manors the more specialised workers, such as millers and swineherds, are included in the totals of villans, bordars and cottars, constituting in total about 72 per cent of the recorded population. At the bottom of the social scale were slaves, perhaps 10 per cent of the population, although numbers varied regionally, with a higher proportion in the west and south west.

    In the Sultanate of Sind in India (today Pakistan)there were black slaves brought via the Indian Ocean slave trade. Anyways. Unfortunately for Sind, a growing Empire invaded them. The new invaders conquered Sind and one of the first laws passed by the new conquerors was ending the institution of slavery due to which, the black slaves got freedom. Which Empire are we talking about, such a benevolent Empire which banned slavery immediately after conquest? Why we talk about the British Empire!
    V.S. Naipaul wrote about it in his book “Among The Believers’
    Their descendants still live in Pakistan but face discrimination from the majority.

    One more thing, I think Shiva Naipaul on his book on Africa mentioned how some French Jesuits rescued black slaves from Arab slavers by buying them up. The slavers did not givafuk as long as they got paid. The Jesuits set up a village for these rescued slaves and settled them. But that woz unintentionally a bad idea. A bunch of rescued foreign black slaves in between hostile native black tribes. When the Jesuits returned, they find the village be abandoned. What happened? What had
    happened is that the neighbouring native blacks conquered them and sold them back to slavery. Oy Vey!!

    English translation from original Portuguese. Olavo de Carvalho, an intellectual from Brazil

    “The Third World movement, an invention of Stalin, turned out to be, and is still today, one of the major sources of the authority of the revolutionary spirit, instilling in the soul of Western civilization an inextinguishable guilt complex and obtaining from it every kind of moral, political and financial profit. Subscribed by international organizations, nourished by billionaire foundations and dozens of governments, trumpeted by indefatigable blabbermouths like Noam Chomsky and Edward Said, enshrined as official doctrine by all big media in Europe and the US, this ideology entirely made of opportunistic mendacity ended up impregnating itself so deeply in public opinion that any attempt at confronting it, even in a neutral and academic tone, is considered today as unequivocal proof of “racism”.

    One of its main dogmas is exactly the charge of racism, thrown generically at the face of all Christendom by innumerable armies of activist intellectuals and, in the last decades, by all the speakers for radical Islam. Imbued with the belief in the innate inferiority of blacks, white European man would have been, according to this doctrine, the slave-master par excellence, decimating the African population and financing, through the disgrace of the black continent, the industrial revolution which made the West wealthy.

    Everything in this theory is a lie, beginning with the chronological inversion. Europeans only arrived in Africa around the middle of the 15th century. Well before that time, racist contempt for blacks was common sense among Arabs, as one can see in the words of some of its most prominent intellectuals. I draw these examples from Bernard Lugan’s book, Afrique, l’Histoire à l’Endroit (Paris, Perrin, 1989).

    Ibn Khaldun, the Tunisian historian (1332-1406), assures us that if the Sudanese are characterized by “levity and inconstancy”, in the more Southern regions “we only find men who are closer to animals than to an intelligent being. They live in wild places and in caves, eat herbs and raw grains and sometimes they eat each other. We cannot consider them human beings.”

    The Egyptian writer Al-Abshihi (1388-1446) asks: “What can there be that is worse and more vile than black slaves? As for the mulattos, be good to them every day of your life and in every possible way, and they will have no gratitude for you: it will be as if you had done nothing for them. The better you treat them, the more they become insolent; but if you mistreat them, they will show humility and submission”.

    Iyad Al-Sabti (1083-1149) writes that the blacks are “of all men the most corrupt and the most disposed to procreation. Their life is like that of an animal. They have no interest in any matter of the world, except for food and women. Apart from that, nothing merits their attention.”

    Ibn Butlan, recognizing that black women have the rhythmic sense and the resistance for hard work, observes: “But one cannot obtain any pleasure from them, such is the odor of their armpits and the roughness of their body.”

    In contrast, theories affirming the racial inferiority of blacks were not disseminated in cultured Europe before the 18th century (cf. Eric Voegelin, The History of the Race Idea. From Ray to Carus, vol. III of his Collected Works, Baton Rouge, Louisiana State University Press, 1998). That is to say that Europeans of the literate classes became racists almost at the same time as the slave trade declined and abolitionist movements began, of which there is no equivalent in the Arab world”

  201. Malla says:
    @d dan

    Olavo de Carvalho further writes
    Arab merchants took to Islamic countries approximately the same amount, with three differences: (1) the Arabs would capture them, something which the Europeans never did, except in Angola and for a brief period; (2) the Arabs castrated at least ten percent of the slaves, a custom that was not known to European slave-traders; (3) the Arabs continued to practice slave trade up to the 20th century. The slavery practiced by the Arabs was a forbidden subject for a long time, but the taboo can be considered broken since the publisher Gallimard, the most prestigious in France, agreed to publish the excellent study of the African author Tidiane N’Diaye, Le Genocide Voilé (2008), which I will comment some other day.

    But it is not only the Arabs that have to cover up their guilt behind a discourse of resentful accusations. Slavery was the general norm in Africa well before the Arabs arrived there, and today we know that the largest part of captured slaves was sold in the internal market, while only a smaller number was taken abroad. When the apologists of African civilization praise the great black kingdoms of the past, they generally omit mentioning that these States (especially Benin, Dahomey, Ashanti and Oyo) owed their prosperity to the slave trade, on which their economy was entirely dependent. Particularly the kingdom of Oyo, writes Lugan, “developed a notable
    military imperialism since the end of the 17th century, seeking to reach the ocean in order to establish direct contacts with the white men. E
    ven before this, the warring strength of the Oyo, especially their cavalry, enabled them to reap an abundant harvest of slaves which it imprisoned in the south, among the Yoruba, and in the north, among the Bariba and the Nupe. Traditionally the numerous captives became slaves in the victors’ society. With the establishment of European slave trade a part – but only a part – was sent to the coast.”

We lived under Turkish rule for 150 years as a result of the Muslim Turkish wars in the 16th century. One of Europe’s most powerful kingdoms then became a weightless European state. The Turks drove more than a million Christian Hungarian slaves into Istanbul during those 150 years. This is three to four times the number of black slaves brought to the present-day USA!

    “The civil war was mostly about the Southern Economy returning to the English Colonial System.”

    War is not “about” something, nor is it “over” something, “under” something, “around” something, or any other space and time metaphor.

    War has a purpose and the decision to attack is made by a human mind (or a collection of them). Lincoln states his purpose very clearly in his First Inaugural Address which can be found at http://www.abrahamlincolnonline.com.

    http://www.abrahamlincolnonline.com/lincoln/speeches/1inaug.htm

    In this speech, he states that he will do nothing about slavery because he has no authority to do so. But he will invade the Confederate States if they do not pay their taxes or if they fire on one of his forts.

    The succession of the Southern States was a tax rebellion. Lincoln’s purpose was to make them bow down and pay their taxes. He used the phrase “saving the Union”, meaning he is boss and the Southerners bow down to him.

    He also stated he did not invade to end slavery in his letter to Horace Greeley which is also on that web site.

    There is a reason that his Fist Innaugural Address is not required reading in government schools.

    “Slavery was on its way out in the western world when Lincoln harvested 750,000 lives to end it in the most extreme, horrible, and absurd way conceivable. ”

    It is absurd because it is not true. The succession was a tax rebellion. Lincoln invaded the South and killed hundreds of thousands of his own people to make them pay their taxes.

    The succession [secession] of the Southern States was a tax rebellion. Lincoln’s purpose was to make them bow down and pay their taxes. He used the phrase “saving the Union”, meaning he is boss and the Southerners bow down to him.

    It would be wise to remember that Lincoln was originally a corporate lawyer particularly for the railroads. He made his fame when he successfully defended the railroads in a lawsuit by steamship companies before the US Supreme Court. The railroads were permitted to build Bridges across the Mississippi which the steamship companies opposed.

    Lincoln was a visionary and understood that it would not be politically viable to have two Nations with a long contiguous border running from the Atlantic to the Pacific oceans, one free and one slave. In such a scenario undoubtedly the USA and CSA would be perpetually at war. So Lincoln’s civil war nipped that in the bud.

    I don’t believe Stalin intended to conquer Continental Europe. But I have met Southerners who sincerely believe that slavery was a just institution and they very much look at Lincoln as a Stalin-like tyrant.

    Your modus vivendi is not feasible. It’s not possible to have a border where CSA slave catchers are constantly raiding into the USA to reclaim their escaped slaves and demanding cooperation from USA citizens and authorities (a la Dred Scott). Kansas and Missouri faced precisely such a situation and there was no modus vendi but rather constant guerrilla warfare and savage bloodshed (bleeding Kansas). This is exactly the kind of situation where a federal government needs to intervene and attenuate.

    Maybe it would have been possible to compensate Southerners for their slaves. I’ve read it would have cost far less than what the Civil War cost in monetary terms, not to mention human lives.

    It’s pretty offensive to compare Lincoln to Stalin. Lincoln was a deeply spiritual person who often quoted from the Bible. I understand he was authoritarian but he had the same dream of Manifest Destiny that most Americans had. He just had the vision to force One Continental Nation upon the recalcitrant South.

    The real problem is that African people were brought over here with no chance of being deemed equals in our society. No way to integrate them into American culture. They were a huge mass of enslaved people with no solution in sight.

    Some people have commented that for technological and economic reasons slavery was doomed anyway. What would have happened with the 4 million black slaves in the South? They were not desired by white Americans. They had nowhere to go. We weren’t willing to send them back to Africa. Even that was not feasible because most of them had been shipped out of Africa as prisoners of war criminals and slaves to other African tribes. Had they been sent back to Africa they probably would have been butchered.

    The problem of knowing what to do with millions of freed black slaves is a problem that all Americans — North and South — share guilt over. Lincoln as much as Jefferson Davis. The slaves were brought over here by consensus among white Americans across the Nation and we never have figured out how to integrate them fairly into our society.

    I also would say that while this article proves that Americans did not invent slavery, we were the last major Nation to utilize slaves on a mass scale and therefore the world’s blame and attention has focused on us.

    By the way check out these photos and see how similar Lincoln and Jefferson Davis looked. I think that should tell us a lot:

    David was also a caravan raider. Read the Old Testament and see for yourself. Muhammad had far fewer wives than even David let alone Solomon with his 1,000 female stable.

    In my view Muhammad is the exact kind of Messiah the Jews were expecting in place of Jesus. They wanted a conquering Warrior Davidic type King and that’s exactly what Muhammad was. He was a prophet a poet a general a king a judge and yes he had a large Harem of mainly political marriages.

    Islam came into the world as a measure for measure consequence of the Jews rejecting Christ. That’s how I see it. And that is probably why Jewish communities have always fared better in the Muslim world than in the Christian. It’s only the rise of Zionism in the 20th century that changed that dynamic.

    However according to Islam, Jesus was the true messiah of the Jews whom the Jews rejected.
    Interestingly in Islamic eschatology, end of days, akir-e-zamaan, when the great battle is fought in between the dajjal (Jewish Moshiach) and Imam Mahdi + Jesus Christ (Hazrat Isa), all Jews would be annihilated and Muslims and Christians will become one people.

    we were the last major Nation to utilize slaves on a mass scale and therefore the world’s blame and attention has focused on us.

    Not true, slavery existed in Africa and Arab lands way after slavery was banned in the West. Slavery existed in Saudi Arabia till the 1960s. Slavery was stopped in Africa only because of European Empires there. For example
    The jihad of the Sokoto Caliphate in West Africa had created “a new slaving frontier on the basis of rejuvenated Islam.” By 1900 the Sokoto state had “at least 1 million and perhaps as many as 2.5 million slaves”. Sokoto state was one of the largest slave societies in recent history; that the majority of slaves within the Caliphate were women, who were sexually subjugated through concubinage; that slavery formed the backbone of the economy and society of the Caliphate; that Islam was a major influence on the political, economic, and legal structures sustaining the institution of slavery in the Caliphate; and that the entrenched nature of slavery in the Caliphate made the British colonial government tread cautiously to avoid social dislocation in the course of consolidating British Imperial Rule.

    The Sokoto jihad and the Yoruba wars stimulated the slave trade at a time when the British were actively trying to stop it. Slaves formerly had been traded for European goods, especially guns and gunpowder, but now the British encouraged trade in palm oil in the Niger delta states, ostensibly to replace the trade in slaves. They later discovered that the demand for palm oil was in fact stimulating an internal slave trade, because slaves were largely responsible for collecting palm fruits, manufacturing palm oil, and transporting it to the coast, whether by canoe or by human porterage.

    Many of the slaves exported in the 1820s and ’30s were intercepted by the ships of the Royal Navy, emancipated, and deposited in Sierra Leone under missionary tutelage. Some of them began to migrate back from Sierra Leone in search of home and trade. They invited missionaries to follow them and, in the 1840s, made themselves available as agents who allowed missionaries and British traders to gain access to such places as Lagos, Abeokuta, Calabar, Lokoja, Onitsha, Brass, and Bonny. In 1841 the British tried to settle some Egba on a model farm in Lokoja, it was also partly to protect the Egba that the British shelled Lagos in 1851, expelled Kosoko, the reigning oba, and restored his uncle, Akitoye, who appeared more willing to join in a campaign to abolish the slave trade. The British annexed Lagos in 1861 in order to protect Akitoye’s son and successor, foil Kosoko’s bid to return, and secure a base for further activities.

    The British were not yet willing to assume the expense of maintaining an administration in Nigeria. To reduce costs, Lagos was administered first from Freetown in Sierra Leone, along with Gold Coast forts such as Elmina, and later from Accra (in present-day Ghana); only in 1886 did Lagos become a separate colony.

    Only after the British easily conquered the vast Sokoto Caliphate along with the Germans, could slavery be completely abolished in that region.

    Do you think America is unique in not living up to the founding ideals it was formed under? The Catholic Church started challenging the morality of slavery in 1431. I see comments appreciating the honesty of the author but he is still not telling you the entire story. The slave trade was initiated & run by Jews bc they were the only people allowed in both Islamic and Christian countries as tensions were high. This provided them the unique opportunity to setup an expansive merchant network throughout Eurasia that no one could seriously compete with. The slave traders were Jews & so were the Southern plantation owners that bought slaves at the auctions. They made incredible fortunes operating stores that undercut their competitors which theyn used to buy up more land (and politicians.)Jewish politicians made sure slavery was here to stay (Judah Benjamin, Sec of State/War nicknamed Father of the Confederacy). Aaron Lopez transported almost half of all the slaves to cross the Atlantic! Wikipedia falsely says he was Christian (he was a converso/ a Jew that pretended to convert to avoid being deported from Portugal) and he helped establish Newport, RI as the epicenter of the slave market! Newport also has the distinction of having one of the first synagogues in America, imagine that! Nobody brings up that Eastern European Slavs were being sold into slavery from th 14th-17th centuries, the same time they were selling Africans in Recife, Brazil Newport, RI Savannah, GA and Charleston,SC!

    My second issue is no one mentions that the Eastern European Slavs were being sold into slavery the exact time West Africans were too, using the Amber Road running from the Baltic States to Prague (where slaves were castrated) and sold in Odessa, Ukraine. Odessa always has been a large trading hub for Jews. It still has a large Jewish population but it’s main business is now sex trafficking (run by you know who.) Pointing this out immediately questions the racial narrative since both Slavs and Jews are White. Curiosity will take over and people will learn this has always been a religious conflict, not a racial one!

    https://www.bibleodyssey.org/en/passages/related-articles/slavery-in-the-new-testament

    Here is famous Scottish Bible commentator William Barclay on slavery in Christianity:

    https://www.dannychesnut.com/Bible/Barclay/TimothyTitusPhilemon.htm

    HOW TO BE A SLAVE AND A CHRISTIAN

    1Tim. 6:1-2

    Let all those who are slaves under the yoke hold their own masters to be worthy of all respect, in order that no one may have an opportunity to speak evil of the name of God and the Christian teaching. If they have masters who are believers, let them not try to take advantage of them because they are brothers, but rather let them render even better service, because those who lay claim to that service are believers and beloved.

    Beneath the surface of this passage there are certain supremely important Christian principles for everyday life and work.

    The Christian slave was in a peculiarly difficult position. If he was the slave of a heathen master, he might very easily make it clear that he regarded his master as bound for perdition and himself as the heir of salvation. His Christianity might well give him a feeling of intolerant superiority which would create an impossible situation. On the other hand, if his master was a Christian, the slave might be tempted to take advantage of the relationship and to trade upon it, using it as an excuse for producing inefficient work in the expectation of escaping all punishment. He might think that the fact that both he and his master were Christians entitled him to all kinds of special consideration. There was an obvious problem here. We must note two general things.

    (i) In those early days the Church did not emerge as the would-be destroyer of slavery by violent and sudden means. And it was wise. There were something like 60,000,000 slaves in the Roman Empire. Simply because of their numbers they were always regarded as potential enemies. If ever there was a slave revolt it was put down with merciless force, because the Roman Empire could not afford to allow the slaves to rise. If a slave ran away and was caught, he was either executed or branded on the forehead with the letter F, which stood for fugitivus, which means runaway. There was indeed a Roman law which stated that if a master was murdered all his slaves could be examined under torture, and could indeed be put to death in a body. E. K. Simpson wisely writes: “Christianity’s spiritual campaign would have been fatally compromised by stirring the smouldering embers of class-hatred into a devouring flame, or opening an asylum for runaway slaves in its bosom.”

    For the Church to have encouraged slaves to revolt against their masters would have been fatal. It would simply have caused civil war, mass murder, and the complete discredit of the Church. What happened was that as the centuries went on Christianity so permeated civilization that in the end the slaves were freed voluntarily and not by force. Here is a tremendous lesson. It is the proof that neither men nor the world nor society can be reformed by force and by legislation. The reform must come through the slow penetration of the Spirit of Christ into the human situation. Things have to happen in God’s time, not in ours. In the end the slow way is the sure way, and the way of violence always defeats itself.

    (ii) There is here the further truth, that “spiritual equality does not efface civil distinctions.” It is a continual danger that a man may unconsciously regard his Christianity as an excuse for slackness and inefficiency. Because he and his master are both Christians, he may expect to be treated with special consideration. But the fact that both master and man are Christian does not release the employee from doing a good day’s work and earning his wage. The Christian is under the same obligation to submit to discipline and to earn his pay as any other man.

    What then is the duty of the Christian slave as the Pastorals see it? It is to be a good slave. If he is not, if he is slack and careless, if he is disobedient and insolent, he merely supplies the world with ammunition to criticize the Church. The Christian workman must commend his Christianity by being a better workman than other people. In particular, his work will be done in a new spirit. He will not now think of himself as being unwillingly compelled to work; he will think of himself as rendering service to his master, to God and to his fellow-men. His aim will be, not to see how little can be forced out of him, but how much he can willingly do. As George Herbert had it:

    “A servant with this clause Makes drudgery divine: Who sweeps a room, as for thy laws, Makes that and the action fine.”

I understand that some of the Southern states were into raising slaves for sale, even when it was abolished in the North, but to say that one needed a general war to sort that out, makes no sense at all.

He would remark openly that he yearned to get back to his Islanders because their religious faith and practices were so much more sincere than what he saw in Europe America and Australia, which were drowning in materialism:

    I know an elderly rabbi in Jerusalem named Yitzchak Breitowitz. He’s an ordained Orthodox rabbi as well as an American law school professor. I’ve written to him many times over the past two years, and even though he knows I’m a believer in Jesus he still is willing to dialogue with me, which as you know is rare for any Orthodox Jew!

    I’d encourage you to write to him because he’s learned in both Jewish and secular subjects. Sometimes I’ve sent him a novel concept and he will acknowledge it and thank me for sharing it with him. I think he’d enjoy hearing from you. You can tell him Menachem introduced you. But PLEASE do not send him anti-Jewish inflammatory stuff because he’s an elderly man and cannot tolerate the stress:

    Rabbi Breitowitz is the Rav of Kehillas Ohr Somayach, Jerusalem. He is the former rabbi of the Woodside Synagogue in Silver Spring, Maryland and associate professor of law at University of Maryland. He received rabbinical ordination from Ner Israel Rabbinical College and his law degree from Harvard Law School.

    I will try to address some of your Qs here too:

    From whom? God?
    There are different books of Kabbalistic writings. The earliest is traced to Abraham himself:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sefer_Yetzirah
    The Zohar is most famous but also controversial. Jews believe it records the teachings of Talmudic Sage Shimon bar Yochai, student of Rabbi Akiva, and was hidden away until its discovery by Moshe de Leon, a 14th century Portuguese Jew:
    https://www.britannica.com/biography/Moses-de-Leon
    Cynics believe de Leon himself wrote the Zohar and falsely attributed it back to Talmudic times. Virtually all Jews today accept its authenticity and consider it on the same level as the Talmud in inspiration.

    Is Hashem or Yahweh or Elohim the same thing?
    Hashem is a euphemism for the four letter Divine Name that Jews won’t pronounce. This is rendered by Christians as Yahweh, Jehovah, or Yahuwah. It is translated usually as Lord and is considered the more personal merciful face of God. Elohim is usually euphemized to EloKeem and is translated as simply God. It connotes the powerful Divine Creator and Strict Judge of Mankind. My assumption is Allah is the Arabic form of Elohim. Many Christians believe Allah is intrinsically idolatrous because of the three daughter idols prior to Muhammed. But Elohim also has idolatrous derivatives like Elim or Elilim. I don’t accept the Christian denigration of the name Allah.

    Do religious Jews believe in “Life Forces” like what Hindus call Prana or what Chinese call Chi? Is the Christian concept of Holy Ghost similar?
    I suspect the Chinese Chi is related to the Hebrew Chai meaning Life Force. For sure Jews believe in Life Force. Indeed all the Torah purity laws are designed to reinforce this force and to suppress the contrary Death Force that is called Tuma or Ritual Defilement in Hebrew. The Hassidic Masters, especially Rabbi Nachman of Breslov, really stressed that sexual sin leads to defilement which causes particularly men to suffer from extreme forms of depression and an encroachment of the Death Force. He said that this Depressive Death Force, along with Atheism, are the main spiritual challenges facing people in our days. BTW, Rabbi Nachman, along with the founder of Chabad-Lubavitch called the Ba’al HaTanya or Shneur Zalman of Liadi, both supported the Tsar against Napoleon. Even though Russian Jews generally hated Tsarist Russia and the Russian Orthodox Church, these two great Hassidic leaders both regarded Napoleon’s revolutionary atheism as a much greater danger and strongly opposed him. Their followers believe that their spiritual intervention on behalf of the Tsar turned fate against Napoleon after he invaded Russia.

    In Hinduism this Universe is the Body of God and God is the soul of the Universe. Soul is called Atma and one name of God in Hinduism is Parmatma or Param-Atma = Param-Prime , Atma-Soul. God= Great Soul.
    I myself am attracted to this concept. I think Jewish mystics come close to this idea. Kabbalah teaches that the created world is ironically a vacant void in which God had to absent himself in order to create the impression of a distinct physical reality. That’s because prior to Creation they believe God is like the Hindu concept where He permeated every level of reality. In Kabbalah the task of man is to penetrate the veil of illusion that seems to exist apart from God and to reconnect to God. Jews believe the Torah commandments are a vehicle to infuse mundane actions with Divine Spirituality. Theoretically everything a Jew does is supposed to remind him of the Divine. The first blessing I ever learned in Yeshiva was the blessing after using the toilet. At first I thought it was ridiculous, but eventually I saw it’s very sublime:

    https://netivyah.org/asher-yatzar-blessing-the-lord-for-all-functions/

    In Christianity and Islam, God is separate from Universe, it is maker of the Universe but separate. Where does Judaism fall? Is it similar to its Abrahamic faith cousins?
    I think the big difference between Christianity and Judaism is that via Jesus Christians see God as more directly involved and merciful towards a sinful Humanity. Judaism sees God as more distant and harder to evoke. I would suggest a continuum of increasing Divine remoteness of:
    Christianity–>Judaism–>Islam–>Hinduism–>Buddhism–>Confucianism
    I might be wrong about this list too. I’m really not sure. Buddhism stresses the miracle of breathing so in that sense the Divine is very close. But I’m not sure if petitional prayer is part of Buddhism.

    Anyways Hebrew is supposed to be a Semitic language like Aramaic and Arabic. But Greek is an Aryan language like German, Russian, Persian, Sanskrit or Bengali. But according to Joseph Yehuda, Hebrew is Greek.
    I wonder about this myself. Rabbis believe that all the great world philosophies emanated from Solomon, to whom the bible records nations sent emissaries. The rabbis claim that Solomon sent them home with a particular philosophy tailored for their culture. They think Greek philosophy derives from Solomon, particularly Platonic mysticism.

    If Greek is Aryan, why do its letters sound like Hebrew letters: Alpha-Aleph, Beta-Beit, Gamma-Gimmel, etc?

    I’ve written to you before about Isaac Mozeson, an English professor from Yeshiva University in New York. He started to notice linguistic similarities between Hebrew, the world’s oldest language, and English, its newest. He ended up publishing a book called THE WORD that traces Hebrew etymological roots to about ten thousand English words (not just obvious ones like Sabbatical, but more obscure ones like Wine, Air, Skin, Ore, etc):

    I forgot to mention something important. Hashem literally means THE NAME. It is derived from a story in Leviticus of a man who cursed God’s name and was stoned to death:

    Leviticus 24:10–12

    Punishment for Blasphemy

    10 Now an Israelite woman’s son, whose father was an Egyptian, went out among the people of Israel. And the Israelite woman’s son and a man of Israel fought in the camp, 11 and the Israelite woman’s son blasphemed the Name, and cursed. Then they brought him to Moses. His mother’s name was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan. 12 And they put him in custody, till the will of the Lord should be clear to them.

    https://www.mechon-mamre.org/p/pt/pt0324.htm
    טו וְאֶל-בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, תְּדַבֵּר לֵאמֹר: אִישׁ אִישׁ כִּי-יְקַלֵּל אֱלֹהָיו, וְנָשָׂא חֶטְאוֹ.
    15 And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying: Whosoever curseth his God shall bear his sin.
    טז וְנֹקֵב שֵׁם-יְהוָה מוֹת יוּמָת, רָגוֹם יִרְגְּמוּ-בוֹ כָּל-הָעֵדָה: כַּגֵּר, כָּאֶזְרָח–בְּנָקְבוֹ-שֵׁם, יוּמָת.
    16 And he that blasphemeth the name of the LORD, he shall surely be put to death; all the congregation shall certainly stone him; as well the stranger, as the home-born, when he blasphemeth the Name, shall be put to death.

    When speaking conversationally or casually about God, Jews use this term Hashem. They also use it in Yeshiva classes when discussing Scriptures.

    But when reading Torah or praying Jews will use a different euphemism for the Four Letter Divine Name YHWH: Adonai. This literally means MY LORDS (plural). My Lord singular Adonee would be used to address an important person, as when Sarah so addresses her husband Abraham:

    https://www.mechon-mamre.org/p/pt/pt0118.htm
    Genesis 18
    יב וַתִּצְחַק שָׂרָה, בְּקִרְבָּהּ לֵאמֹר: אַחֲרֵי בְלֹתִי הָיְתָה-לִּי עֶדְנָה, וַאדֹנִי זָקֵן.
    12 And Sarah laughed within herself, saying: ‘After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?’

    https://www.christianity.com/bible/commentary.php?com=wes&b=1&c=18
    Verse 12
    [12] Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?

    Sarah laughed within herself — It was not a laughter of faith, like Abraham’s, Genesis 17:17, but a laughter of doubting and distrust. The great objection which Sarah could not get over was her age. I am waxed old, and past child-bearing in a course of nature, especially having been hitherto barren, and which magnifies the difficulty, My lord is old also. Observe here, That Sarah calls Abraham her lord, and the Holy Ghost takes notice of it to her honour, and recommends it to the imitation of all Christian wives, 1 Peter 3:6. Sarah obeyed Abraham calling him lord, in token of respect and subjection.

    ADONAI in the plural parallels ELOHIM which also is plural (Gods). Christians see in these plural forms an allusion to the Holy Trinity, but Jews see them as simply the Royal We used to address a monarch.

    Malla,

    I apologize for constantly adding to my reply. But the Jewish approach to the Divine Name underlies a more general problem which is their effort to wall off and compartmentalize the Holy. Jewish people have a lot of awe and fear of God’s Holiness.

    When reading the Torah in a formal synagogue service and doing community prayers, Jews will always pronounce the Divine name Elohim but never the four letter name of God. That they will always refer to as ADONAI [My Lords] They will never ever say the names Yahweh Yahuwa or Jehovah. For two reasons: One they are not certain those are even the correct pronunciation. And two even if they were certain they have a custom never to pronounce this name. Apparently the High Priest only uttered this name once a year during the Yom Kippur Day of Atonement service in the Jerusalem Temple. By the way Yom Kippur 5782/2021 is 50 days from today!

    [MORE]

    In casual conversation or private personal prayer to God, they will use the term Hashem for the four letter Divine name and Elokim for Elohim. They won’t even write the word Hashem fully in a letter or notebook. Instead they write the Hebrew letter HAY which is the first letter of Hashem making the HA sound followed by an apostrophe indicating that it’s an abbreviation: הי

    So you see how careful they are to wall off the Divine Names from casual use. They base the general concept on the Third Commandment of not taking God’s Name in vain. Ironically some Christian scholars say just the opposite, that in refusing to use God’s name (the four letter Hebrew name is written almost 7000 times in the Old Testament) that in fact represents taking His Name in vain or rendering His Name void!

    It seems that Jesus respected this Jewish custom. He almost always refers to God as My Father or speaking to the disciples as Your Heavenly Father. On the Jewish New Year and Yom Kippur Jews refer to God as Our Father Our King Aveeno Malkeinu echoing Jesus’ usage.

    One reason Jewish people are so uneasy with the person of Jesus is the casual way Christians will use his name. They invoke the name of Jesus all the time. In prayer in Bible readings and even casual conversation. Jews are somewhat horrified by this. They rarely would call one of their own rabbis by his first name. They hardly ever say Moses. Rather they call him Moshe Rabbeinu – Moses Our Teacher. They hardly ever say Abraham Isaac and Jacob but refer to them as the Avot or Patriarchs. So they might say Avraham Aveeno Abraham Our Father. They would never call a Hasidic leader Nachman or Zalman but rather Rebbe Nachman or Rebbe Zalman. Jews are bewildered at the casual intimacy Christians have with the name of Jesus, and maybe a little jealous too. There is much to ponder about what that implies!

    Thank you for giving me this opportunity to sort out my thoughts about this important topic.

    Shalom waSalaam to you!

    The casual way Christians speak about Jesus might reflect their generally more casual approach to spiritual formalism. You probably are aware that Christians generally dress much more casually in worship than Jews and Muslims. I assume Hindus also dress somewhat formally in times of worship. I also assume that you refer to your deities like Shiva and Brahma as Lord Shiva and Lord Brahma etc?

    Having been an observant Jew and now Christian for the last 20 years, I suspect much of the antipathy of Jews and Muslims to Christianity has more to do with the perceived casual Christian cultural practices that Jews and Muslims struggle to respect than with theology per se. They feel it is not right to refer to a Divine being so casually that borders on disrespect.

    (I have observed that Muslims never say just Muhammad but rather The Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him and so forth. They show tremendous respect for their prophets let alone for the Divine being of Allah.

    War is not “about” something, nor is it “over” something, “under” something, “around” something, or any other space and time metaphor.

    What? This is the order: Economics/Politics/War

    Politics is economics by other means, and War is politics by other means. All wars are the attempt by one party to get something from another party.

    The South WAS RETURNING TO THE COLONIAL SYSTEM.

    As such, the North instituted the Tariff. Tariffs are an integral part of the American System of Economy. The North wanted the South to buy goods from the North.

    The revolutionary war was the Colonies breaking away from England. The Southern plantation economy was making a mockery of the revolutionary war.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morrill_Tariff

    The American System of Economy is high external tariffs and low internal tariffs.

    When the tariff was instituted, almost immediately the South could not sell their goods and wares to England, and then turn around and buy from England because the Tariff made English goods high priced.

    The mistake the North made was in NOT REBATING in full, to the south, the tariff gains. The other mistake was not spreading industrialization to the south, to then overcome the plantation economy.

    Otherwise, everything else you said is true.

    The south would not have given two shits about the tax if the North had rebated properly.

All of you disinfo shills then somehow spin this up as if all of the founding fathers were slavers and had associated guilt. Then you spin it up further and paint white Americans as guilty. Then it is just a hop and skip to paint all white people with the same brush.

    And while you are at it, let’s invoke Hitler. Whitey was the one with the spear killing the Jew on the Cross.

    See how that works, it is a complete inversion of reality – clown world. Up is down and left is right.

    Rape child? House negroes would look down on field negroes. And the lighter color you were, the better fit you were to be a house negro.

    8. Do Whites have the courage to embrace individuality and abandon or at least dilute their racial consciousness? I have serious doubt. Whites are likely to want the cake and still eat it. So, the reconciliation wouldn’t start and no healing of the racial rupture possible. Meanwhile, Americans would continue the infinite loop of futile and meaningless jumping between the binary “White-good” and “White-bad” echo chambers, praising in one while cursing in the other.

    You have offered a very insightful comment. I think by original sin what is meant is slavery is the foundational fly in the ointment of American National identity. Exactly as you point out the hubris and absurdity of writing that all men are created equal and yet slaves only count as 3/5 of a man in a census and have no rights whatsoever.

    I think the author of the article demonstrates that other historical forms of slavery have been much more cruel than the American version. But I also think that precisely because people have such high expectations of America — mainly owing to its own grandiose rhetoric –the institution of slavery is more readily condemned here than anywhere else.

    I also think that your challenge in point number 8 cannot be met because whites today feel besieged and afraid and naturally are going to seek strength in numbers rather than being weakly divided and conquered.

  263. Discussions of black racial problems overlook the most crucial factor. Blacks don’t just lag but drag, as in dragging society down to the ground. If the problem was simply a matter of lag, the problem would be far less dire. Blacks would simply trail other groups in achievement and productivity.
    Or, if blacks failed miserably but in their own manner and space, that too would be tolerable. After all, the social failures of American Indians and Australian Aborigines(or the issues of alcoholism related to Eskimos) are hardly threats to civilization and order. They are depressing and even self-destructive but not particularly destructive to others. The harm is implosive than explosive. In contrast, blacks don’t just lag but drag and drag everyone and everything down with them. The recently arrived black African immigrants in Australia have caused far more harm than the native Aborigines who remain below but don’t blow up society.

    This is why the issue of Reparations fails to address the most important problem. Now, suppose blacks were doing their share to catch up but remained behind due to past disadvantages. Under such scenario, offering aid to blacks might go some ways to help them catch up more. It wouldn’t be money wasted.
    However, in the current reality most blacks not only make NO EFFORT to improve their lot but go out of their way to waste everything provided for them, with zero understanding/appreciation of where the goods and services come from. Consider the amount of money spent on educating blacks. What do black kids do when bestowed with such advantages denied to most children around the world, especially in Black Africa? They act like apes and baboons in schools, which might as well be called zoochools.

    Suppose a child is shorter than another child because he was fed less. So, while he’s still growing, it might make sense to offer him extra food and nutrients so he could grow up faster and catch up with other kids. This would be a case of lag.
    However, suppose the shorter kid is given food and vitamins to grow faster, but instead of dutifully taking advantage of them, he throws them everywhere and goes into endless tantrums. He drags the whole thing down to the dirt.

    If blacks are behind due to past injustices and were at least making an effort to catch up, added social programs might be of some benefit. Even if blacks are less intelligent and innately deficient in some areas, their goodwill and effort would still lead to some positive outcomes. But too many blacks don’t make any such effort. Indeed, they seem totally bewildered by requisite standards of commitment and cooperation. At once, they want everything to be done for them but want all the credit for what others do for them. All too often, even once well-meaning whites become jaded or cynical, though they reliably remain too cowardly or ‘nice’ to acknowledge that black problem goes deeper into the realm of genetics. It’s not just a matter of lower IQ but wilder personality, egotism, psychopathy, and lack of empathy. Their advantage in muscle power made it worse as wild/aggressive personality + muscle power = thug arrogance toward the weaker races. Blacks have much to gain from respecting whites and appreciating white achievement, but thug arrogance looks upon whitey as sorryass mofo who done deserve no respect.

    Imagine two groups of tower-builders. One group got a head start and built 50 stories already. The other got a later start and managed to build only 25. Even so, it built something. And somewhat later, the first group made it to 75 stories while the other made it to 50. Even though they aren’t equal, both groups are making progress. Even if the second group doesn’t catch up with the first, it too is rising higher and higher. Under such circumstances, one could argue for extra help for the second group so that it may rise to parity with the first group in the tower-building.

    But it’d be a wholly different matter if the second group, upon finally having the chance to build its own tower, hardly makes an effort. Worse, even when the first group lends a hand and builds some stories for the second group, the latter expends most of its energy to tear it down! Just look what blacks have done with St. Louis(not to mention East St. Louis), Baltimore, parts of Milwaukee, Newark, Detroit, Birmingham, and so many black-majority places. They don’t just lag behind(like Mexicans for example) but go out of their way to drag everything down to the mud. If whites achieve more while browns tend to lag, blacks tear down what others make. Look what black Africans have done with foreign aid and investment. When it’s given to blacks, they squander it all on bling or whatever. Look what blacks did to Zimbabwe once whites were kicked out. Look what blacks did to Uganda after kicking out the Hindus. Now, whites and Hindus were no saints in Africa, but they built things and made something out of nothing. The black problem isn’t a matter of taking something and achieving less but turning something into nothing with their wild and savage ways. So, what use would reparations be when blacks will just take the money and blow it on nonsense? And then, they’ll be back to bitching and saying, “We need mo’, sheeeeeeiiiiit.”

    Why are blacks like this? It’s genetics. Some will acknowledge black pathologies but blame them entirely on the historical trauma of slavery. But is black behavior different in Uganda, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, or South Africa where they weren’t slaves of whites? No, we see the same patterns. Whites(and Hindus) come and build stuff, achieving some degree of development. Under white rule or Hindu management, blacks gain access to modernity. But once blacks begin to bitch about inequality & injustice and demand to take over everything, they drag everything into the dirt. And even when do-goody whites shower blacks with more free stuff, it isn’t long before blacks squander those as well and keep demanding more free stuff.

    So, the dominant narrative where whites are ahead and blacks are lagging behind and in need of extra help to catch up is a false one. No, the reality isn’t that blacks are merely lagging behind. They are dragging civilization in the opposite direction. They are wasting most of what is handed to them, the kind of stuff that blacks on their own would never have attained. It’s not like a fast-walking white guy is roped to a slower-walking black guy. While the slower-walking black guy would slow down the white-guy, he would still be doing his part in the march forward. Thus, the white guy would need to make an extra effort, but he wouldn’t be doing all the pulling. But, suppose a fast-walking white guy is roped to a black guy who pulls in the opposite direction and jerks violently. Look at recent events in South Africa. Blacks have totally reverted to their jungle-jive nature. How can white and Asian minorities pull the black majority into modernity where so many blacks are pulling in the opposite direction of wanton savagery?

    When whites are with Arabs, whites achieve more, Arabs achieve less. Still, many Arabs are doing their part to make things work. Arabs lag and burden whites somewhat, but it isn’t anti-civilizational. It’s much the same with whites and browns(mestizos from Latin America). But when it’s whites and blacks, the dynamics is whites pull one way while blacks pull in the other way. US has managed so far because blacks are a minority, but the situation in South Africa is proof that black nature is antipathic to the white one: It is anti-civilizational. But because blacks excite whites so much athletically, musically, and sexually, the white race sees the black race as one big Orb(or Negrorb) and just can’t let it go… and the rot has spread to Japan and elsewhere.

    If blacks seemed to be making progress until the 1960s, it was because they were still under the domination of whites. While this could take the form of prejudice and injustice, it nevertheless had the effect of curtailing some of the more destructive and wilder tendencies of black nature. Also, as the culture was, by and large, more family-oriented and hierarchical, black men and women had some inhibitions about sexuality and black youths had some notion of respect. In the 1960s, Black America threw out the baby with the bathwater. While blacks got freedom and equality, they lost much in social discipline and culture of shame that had provided a measure of stability to the black community. Also, mass immigration meant blacks would have to compete with newcomers for manual jobs & small businesses; and, the welfare state encouraged single-motherhood among young black women who could always look to the federal check. And youth culture got dumber and more vulgar. Pop culture not only turned to trash but became the main culture. Academic freedom and genuine liberalism gave way to Political Correctness and now ‘wokeness’ that have no room for free thought and discussion. Without a culture of integrity and honesty, how can anyone address the real problem?

    The 2020 BLM riots should have made it clear beyond a doubt to any honest person. The problem with blacks is not that they lag behind or simply have less. The problem is they burn what others build. They unmake what others make.

    The history excuse isn’t very convincing. Consider Europe. For many centuries, the aristocrats had it all. They learned to read and write while the masses of serfs or peasant folks toiled from dawn to dusk. Most people had little time for learning. Many remained illiterate all their lives. Such were the conditions over the millennia. And even though people associate East Asia with education, the great majority of people there were dirt poor, illiterate, and ignorant until late modernity brought about by Westernization. For thousands of years, the only reality for most people was waking up to work all day long on the rice fields, like the peasants in SEVEN SAMURAI. A large share of the population were slaves or something like serfs. But when the caste/class discrimination ended, the children of the lower classes made rapid gains in schools and professions and ably competed with the children of the former aristocracy. When the communists came to power in China in 1949, the majority of adults were illiterate. And yet, when China finally got its act together and provided universal education, great strides were made. China still lags the West in many areas but has caught up considerably(and may even surpass the West in certain fields, as Japan has done). The problems of lag can be dealt with and managed.

    But it’s entirely different with blacks. Blacks in Africa inherited so much from European Colonialists but destroyed them. Black Africans with some ability and talent opted to move overseas, especially to Western nations, because their skills could hardly be applied in a world where most people are stuck in ugabuga mentality and look upon modernity as just something to grab and loot.
    The problem with Detroit isn’t that blacks took over and did less than whites because of disadvantages stemming from past discrimination. If that were the case, Detroit would have remained a functional city, only less so than if whites managed it. The problem is Detroit is a total wreck because blacks have a jungle-approach to white-made things.

    And black destructiveness isn’t the result of resentment and envy for what whites have achieved. If, at the very least, blacks had a fuller, deeper, and richer understanding of West’s contribution to World History, they might appreciate the true value of white-made stuff. But most blacks have no understanding of the origins of white achievements. They just think it be like bananas that grow on trees. Things just be, and blacks feel they deserve more of it just because. It’s like one bunch of chimps angry that another bunch of chimps got more bananas. Now, if indeed modern goods all grow on trees, blacks would have a point. Why should non-blacks have more of the bananas when bananas just be growing naturally? Recent events in South Africa attest to this. Whites and Asians go through the labor of production and commerce, but the simpleminded black mentality just can’t process any of it. It just thinks, “Why whites and Hindus got more bananas?” Their apelike appetites hunger for more bananas and uses any excuse — the imprisonment of Jacob Zuma — to go apeshit and grab all they can.
    As for blacks who do understand that modern goods are man-made, they believe they should have the most because Jewish-run PC education and Afrocentric fantasies pushed the nuttery that Egyptians were black and invented everything in the Ancient World, which was then stolen by the evil ‘racist’ Greeks. Or, it’s a case of PC nonsense taught in schools that convinced not only blacks but plenty of whites that American Wealth owes mainly to black slave labor and that even whitey-on-the-moon was made possible by three black women more advanced in math than Einstein. With ignorance such as this, is it any wonder that blacks think they should have the most, if not all?

    It is really time to do away with this charade. It’s not like blacks are making an effort to catch up but lagging due to past wrongs. If that were the case, regardless of whether blacks can catch up or not, the racial problem would be far less because, at the very least, white efforts at amelioration would be appreciated and used constructively. Even if the extra help doesn’t have the desired effect of closing the gap, there would be mutual amity in white good-will and black striving.
    But what is really happening? Blacks wasting most education dollars in schools that have come to resemble zoos. Blacks using any excuse to rob, loot, and burn down cities. Black enmity dead-set against honesty & self-criticality and instead blaming whitey for everything, and I mean EVERYTHING. Granted, it’s made been far worse by the toxic venality of Jewish Power whose main interest is to manipulate white-black relations to maximize Jewish supremacist power. Jewish priority is to perpetuate and bait ‘white guilt’, which has been so effective in suppressing white identity/interests and goading sorry whites into seeking Jewish advice and counsel on redemption. Of course, Jews tell whites to kiss Zionist ass and say a million ‘hail martins’ or ‘hail mandelas’. As long as Jews control the West and covet ‘white guilt’ about blacks as the surest means of controlling white hearts-and-minds, the official narrative will have whites believing that well-meaning and striving blacks are held back ONLY BECAUSE of past ‘racism’. In truth, blacks are free. They are free and wild and doing everything to drag white civilization into the ground. Too Many Blacks result in Detroit, Baltimore, Haiti, or South Africa.

    In Mexico, whites ruled over browns, and browns still lag behind. The reasons could be genetic(higher white IQ), cultural(backward brown culture), historical(browns were disadvantaged), emotional(browns are more passive and resigned), or whatever. But the white-brown problem in Mexico and Southwest America is one of lag. Browns don’t rise to the level of whites, but they do their part to maintain civilization(and do make some progress). But it’s a very different matter with blacks outwardly hostile to the very idea of modern civilization and the norms required to sustain it. Blacks are a total drag on modern civilization, but as long as they serve as the Orb or Negrorb of silly whites mind-altered by Jewish media & academia, blacks may well succeed in dragging everything down to the level of Africanery.

    Mass incarceration is designed to make money by imprisoning minorities. The ‘War on Drugs’ is a war on minorities as the differential punishments inflicted on White or middle-class ‘perps’ and minority ones show. Then there is the inability to access decent legal representation, seen in so many wrongful imprisonments, even executions, for serious crimes. And poor underclasses are always policed by the ruling elites, nowhere more so than the USA, the most viciously sadistic state, at home and abroad, on Earth.

    I also would say that while this article proves that Americans did not invent slavery, we were the last major Nation to utilize slaves on a mass scale and therefore the world’s blame and attention has focused on us.

    This needs just one counter-example. Brazil did not abolish slavery until 1888. Also, serfdom was not abolished in Russia until 1861, nor in Poland until 1864. While many Latin American countries, including Mexico, officially abolished slavery before 1860, remnants continued to exist until after the US Civil War.

    You mean because the Dred Scott Supreme Court case about the fugitive slave law did not apply to Canada? The southern slave catchers respected the Canadian border and didn’t try to cross it to fetch back escape slaves?

    I’m not sure if that is a good analogy for the hypothetical case of a USA faced off against a csa. That border would have been about a 500 miles south of the Canadian border. It seems to me there would have been a huge influx of escape slaves from the CSA North into the USA and that slave catchers would constantly be testing the Border to recover their human merchandise.

    Another thing to consider. Studies have shown that the United States is the most warlike society in the last 300 years. I think we’ve had 20 years of Peace in all of our national history. We have intervened in the Caribbean Latin America and all across the globe. Why not assume that the USA would simply decide to conquer the CSA and obtain for itself its valuable and strategic territory?

    In Christianity and Islam, God is separate from Universe, it is maker of the Universe but separate

    Christianity is incarnational i.e. god enters the world through Jesus. He remains in the world through his indwelling spirit in his followers. St Paul declares “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me”. The gospel of John contains an extended discourse on this theme.

    Mr Taylor obviously skirts around the scholarship defining the origins of the Atlantic slave trade, because this strongly implicates the Sephardic sugar merchants of Amsterdam and their various exiled cousins from the Iberian peninsula who both inititiated and were instrumental in engineering and maintaining this trade. Their cousins remained strong beneficiaries of this trade right down until the 19th century. They had a vastly disproportionate relative involvement in it when compared to ‘White’ people, who are currently blamed by the enslavers’ ancestors for the whole enterprise.

    “…Do you know anything about Jewish mysticism Kaballah = Kabba + Allah?…”

    The Hebrew word qabbalah means literally “reception”, hence also “tradition” (that what has been “received” from previous generations). Jewish mysticism is presented as a secret tradition going all the way back to Moses at the Sinai. In reality it was developed by diaspora Jews in southern France in the 13th century.

    “…Does Brith means ‘covenant’ in hebrew, you know Binai Brith? Does “ish’ means ‘man’ in hebrew? Thus “British” = Covenant man…”

    The depth, breadth and layers involoved in the deception are what throws a lot of people off study.

    Yes, “ish” means man in Hebrew, it also means “strength” which would translate the English into “Covenant-strength.”

    https://www.balashon.com/2008/10/ish-and-isha.html

    And in English, a language created by four Gaulic-Jewish magicians, “Ish” is a diminutive meaning “sort of”.

    So there for “the English” translates to “covenant-sort of” which means; “yes, these people are part of the covenant, but they do not know it.

    I am not claiming there were cross-border raids. I’m just surprised that there weren’t. I know that runaway slaves often aimed for Canada. I never thought about whether the slave catchers would try to penetrate there. I know that when Sitting Bull took his Sioux Tribe north into Canada to escape the US Military, the Canadian authorities eventually forced them back into the US, soon to be followed by the Wounded Knee massacre. So how do you explain the fact that the Canadian government protected runaway American slaves?

    I believe most White Christians, both in the North and the South, along with most American Jews, avidly supported Southern slavery as biblically justified and crucial to American prosperity. Many of the abolitionists were viewed scornfully as “secular humanist” troublemakers by these religious Bible thumpers.

  284. It seems the majority race/s were the ones that monopolized slave trading and ownership, not the white race. Hello BLM.

  285. Because the winners of wars write the history books, they are full of omissions.

    Here are some omissions in our American history books during1781 and 1791, just 10 yrs after the war
    1781 Cornwallis read Washington the riot act for what is to become of America and it people. And there is not any recorded rebuttal from Washington to Cornwallis. Both were head Masons.

    [MORE]

    As the actual winner of the physical war, Washington should have created a Doctrine of Conquest claiming all the that was fought for by the Patriots/3 Percenters/ Paul’s Raiders/ Minute Men and other supporting Colonist. Yes all the spoils of war.
    This conquest document would have documented that a victorious nation (America) in war acquired sovereignty over the conquered nation (British Crown) and could exert its own legal and political jurisdiction chosen by its sovereign residents.
    The practice for creating a doctrine of conquest dates back at least to Roman law. Instead George Washington allowed King George III to dictate his own Trilateral Treaty terms for ending the physical war with his 1783 Definitive Treaty of Peace aka Treaty of Paris. in the King George introduction of this treaty he claims to be Arch-treasurer and Prince Elector of the United States of America. It appears the Queen and her Privy counsel now has the capacity of Arch-treasurer with oversight of the USA SSA \$\$\$.

    At this point, the Americans, the common man wasn’t allowed to vote, own their lands with free and clear title. Lost their choice of Rule of Law form that all 13 colonies agreed to. +++

    1789, just before Washington was sworn into office as POTUS, the First Act of Congress changed the title of the U.S. Constitution for purposes of taking the oath of office. Since that date no one has ever taken the oath repeating the title words stated in the Preamble “the Constitution for the the United States of America”. If words mean anything then changing a word and deleting others can change meaning and intent.

    And then in 1791 Washington allowed the creation of foreign English Banking System with all foreign charter members. And we know what that morphed into to this date.

    Washington = hero or ?

    Can we discussed what the King’s Treaty may have done to the standing of the Constitution and Declaration of Independence?

    the genocide of 60 million indigenous natives

    Actually, the “indigenous” Injuns were natives of Siberia. They migrated to what would become the USA during several Ice Ages. Once here, they married-raped-fought-tortured-enslaved-ate each other long before YT showed up.

    Also, some 90% of Injuns died from diseases they weren’t immune to. They had no horses, cows, pigs, etc. which visiting Spaniards did. Those noobs had adapted to diseases their domesticated animals spread. Natives had not…so the latter went belly-up in the noon-day sun. Howsomever, Injuns gave Europeans syphilis, so there’s that.

    So a line on a pictograph indicates only 1/20 of haul went to North America.

    Yes: 350,000 mbutus tops.

    There are some 45,000,000 sambos today because white colonists (1) didn’t lop off Mandingo cojones and (2) treated Kintes like cattle. To wit: no farmer, having paid scarce, hard-earned cash on cows, is going to abuse them. Slaves were expensive, long-term investments. The idea that every slave was whipped nearly to death is as big a lie as Wakanda being real. In truth, white indentured servants were often treated worse, deemed expendable temps (some 40% dying before there 7-year terms ended). They were often used for projects considered too dangerous for blacks…like draining swamps.

    Worse off were white swabbies in the British Navy (not to mention ones forced/pressed into service). They were often beaten and whipped, many dying of scurvy.

    The problem is no one ever compares black history to the history of other peoples. Germans were invited to farm in Russia in the 1760s. Said “Volga Germans” They did well until they didn’t. During World War II, about a million of them, in 151 train convoys, were shipped to Siberia and elsewhere to work in forced labor camps. About a third died.

    During the Thirty Years War, about 60% of Germans died. And they are but one white people who suffered horrors in history. Yet you don’t hear Germans today bellyaching or demanding reparations from Russia, Sweden, France, etc. The focus remains on the world’s eternal losers-whiners-moochers-killers: blacks!

    So tell us: why did Africans, the first humans, invent slavery?

    Why did Africans allow themselves to be enslaved?

    Why does black slavery exist today when every other previously-enslaved group has ended the practice and advanced?

    Why did Africans have simple dugout canoes when whites had complex, ocean-going ships?

    Why do black Americans today, with all the world’s knowledge at their fingertips on their iPhones, remain on the lowest rungs in nations: socially, intellectually, and economically?

    Why do blacks excel at being violent, bastard-producing abortionist leeches?

    Name one majority-black village, town, county, state, nation, or continent that sane people flock to!

    FACT: slaves brought to the USA, had they not been shipped there, would have still been slaves…in Africa or elsewhere. Had LeBron’s ancestors not been American slaves, Mr. James would not only not be a multi-millionaire…his head would have likely been soccer ball some Congolese shitehole.

    Black slaves were LUCKY to land in North America. They benefited from centuries of European culture, laws, customs, mores, know-how, and so on. They enjoyed a culture 10,000 years ahead of their own. Plus they were freed in, historically speaking, relatively short order. And once free, they learned English, benefitting from English common law, the Magna Carta, architecture, painting, Industrial Revolution, music, and so on.

    Jackson is not White, and certainly probably not as smart as you, Mr. T. Yet, somehow he is able to see things clearly, and, to publish his clear thoughts for open public consumption.

    He took a break from his busy schedule of looting, rape and scoring low on I.Q, tests, to cobble together vital historical content on your fellow white slave pimps which you just can’t. Or is it just that you won’t?

    Perhaps his article could fill in the blanks of who ran all that slave ship action from Africa down to the Caribbean and Brazil, to fully complete the picture as per your illustrative ship travel diagram?

  299. American racism was/is world historical unique as American slavery was based upon the “inferiority” of the African race, nicely stated in the Confederate Constitution. American slavery was limited to black human beings. Other instances of slavery were far more flexible selling into slavery a mixed bag. White men, Americans, Indians, Arabs, black Africans and many more were slaves at one time or another, in one place or another. Anglo-American slavery was ideological, targeting only blacks! Americans did not enslave enemies, indians, Chinese etc. It is this pathological racism which distinguishes the American form of slavery from all or most of the others. Whereas many black Africans became slaves in South American, still Indians and enemies were also enslaved! So…while slavery was widespread and varied and opportunistic, including black African slavery, thorough-going racism was not. Of necessity perhaps, US created a uniquely doctrinaire racism, one which continues to trouble relations in our time. The distinction between slavery and racism is lost on both Taylor and PCR. In the US, slavery was racism and racism was slavery.
