|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
