OBAMA’S FRIEND, PROFESSOR GATES: AFRICANS SOLD OTHER AFRICANS INTO SLAVERY (video)

Posted by FactReal on September 9, 2010

BLACKS ALONG WITH WHITES, MUSLIMS, ASIANS, ETC. PARTICIPATED IN ENSLAVING OTHERS.
Even Obama’s friend, Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr., admits that black Africans participated in the horrendous business of slavery.
Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. on PBS:
“Africans sold other Africans to the Europeans.”

“There were African middlemen and they’d fight wars with other Africans to enslave them and to sell them to the white man.”

“Slavery was a huge business for different African kingdoms.”

“The story that we got when we were kids…it’s not how it happened.”

Slavery was established before Europeans arrived: “Domestic slave ownership as well as domestic and international slave trades in western Africa preceded the late 15th-century origins of the Atlantic slave trade.” “Not only was slavery an established institution in West Africa before European traders arrived, but Africans were also involved in a trans-Saharan trade in slaves along these routes.” “Enslavement was most often a byproduct of local warfare, kidnapping, or the manipulation of religious and judicial institutions.”

SLAVERY WAS NOT INVENTED BY WHITE AMERICANS
Despite all the efforts by race charlatans, race hustlers and race-obsessed politicians who are in the business of keeping Americans divided, the historical facts are the same: White Americans did not invent slavery. Slavery was widely practiced centuries before America came into existence. Blacks, whites, Asians, Muslims, Native Americans, and others participated in enslaving others.

    I read enough to have already known about this history , Not to mention black slavers who raided European and British Isle coasts taking white slaves many years before America was discovered . Still it is only the white man accused of slavery . We have all come a long way but have a long way to go . Just remember , all races participated in what we now know to be barbarism .
