So when are the descendants of African tribals who conquered other tribes and sold their slaves to Jewish slavers going to apologize? Have they already? Think I missed that article if they did.


You are making too much stereotypes and popular myths. The form of slavery by Africans are not as cruel as the European absolutist form of slavery and the African slaves are enslaved for more justifiable reason like debt payment. An exception could be the Altantic slave trade that the Europeans introduced where the free market allow a win-win between the European slave traders and Africans slave raider: the European slave traders get slaves and the few Afriacan slave raiders gets more weapons to capture more slaves. As the Altantic slave trade bloomed from its high profitability, many more Africans tribes also engage in slave raiding to get weapons for self-defense from slave raiders. The free market system like these promote negate externality, or the negative effects on bystanders, which, in this case, is the increased enslavement of African tribes and the increased brutality to the slaves in for less justifiable reasons, but the Capitalists will never accounted for external effects like this.

holy shit this is delusional. So killing the majority of a tribe and taking the survivors and selling them as slaves isn't cruel. Its all da white man's fault, even though brutal slavery was common before europeans set foot in africa and still is to this day.
Its not cruel because its done by non whites.
K den.

Gotta love being born and raised in ole South Carolina. Regardless, at least we showed up on the news once again for something trivial and history ridden.
