Slavery is something most countries have been involved with at some point in history
Today we see statues being removed in the UK, some criminally and others by cowardly local councils who are caving into demands of thugs, in the hope they will gain a few votes.
We are now supposed to feel guilt and shame for events of the past.
It is made out that slavery was only something done by the white citizen in England and the USA.
But slavery is something almost all countries have been involved with in recorded history, and possibly before historic events were recorded.
How far back should we seek to fix such wrongs?
Should the white people feel anger towards the black community for the slavery of the English by Barbary pirates [LINK].
Should we be upset by the invasions of the Romans?
Anthony Johnson who was black is reported to have owned slaves on his 250-acre farm in Virginia during the 1650’s. William Ellison was a very wealthy black plantation owner and cotton gin manufacturer who lived in South Carolina owned slaves. American Indians owned thousands of black slaves. In 1830 there were 3,775 free black people who owned 12,740 black slaves. Brutal black-on-black slavery was common in Africa for thousands of years. [LINK]. So let us stop pretending this is something only white people did to black people.
Someone on Twitter made an interesting tweet. They asked if those on these protests, bothered to check if they were wearing clothes made by children on low wages and were using gadgets made by people on low wages.
