    You blame the left for "cancel culture" when it's the right that doesn't even want children to know about slavery? And doesn't want people to marry those of their choice? And "don't say gay"? And deprive women of dominion over their own bodies?

    I am 75 years old and knew about and learned about slavery at around 7 years old. Guess what it was much much later in life that I learned Africans were very involved with selling their own people to America and other places. I learned this but not in grade school, high school or college had to look it up on my own. Also learned that African blacks owned slaves from other races and coutries and American black plantation owners had slaves. So you think that is taught in today's schools you pompous professor?

    white people should be credited with ending slavery. slavery was normal and constant among native american populations. also genocide and all manner of savagery. and of course slavery is still fairly widespread in places where white people are not. the chances of any person being a slave is drastically less when they are in the proximity of a white person.

    if anything history classes should be taught that white folks are the heroes of anti-slavery, saviors of blacks that would have still been enslaved if still in africa.

    we are taught in school that the native americans were peaceful and the white men came and took their land. but the whites that came, they saved the indians from savagery. the natives were raping, baby burning mass killers, genocidal cannibals.

    Found this easily today. I knew about this a long time ago but thought I would look it up today. Bet there is nowhere in any America school this is taught.

    By 1850, William Ellison had 37 slaves while his sons owned another 16. He was one of about 180 black slave masters in South Carolina at the time, most of whom were former slaves themselves. Like Ellison, they realized that the only way to get out of the lower middle class that so many freed blacks were stuck in, was slave labor. With nearly 9,000 free blacks in South Carolina, that 180 made up a tiny percentage who were willing to do anything to compete with the upper class white slaveowners at the time. Just because they owned slaves though did not mean they were treated equally among slaveowners. As Ellison subtly hints in his letter, white slave owners would avoid interacting with African Americans as much as possible. Ellison provided many whites in the area with what were the best cotton gins available which meant that if they wanted to produce the most cotton, they would have to do business with them. They would often try to avoid paying him though. Despite the discrimination, blacks owning blacks continued all the way up to the Civil War, with many African American slave owners, including Ellison, contributing and supporting the Confederate side. Stories like Ellison’s and other black slave owners showed the economic power of slavery in Southern America in the nineteenth century. The easiest way to achieve financial and social success was to own slaves and the allure of southern wealth was enough that it convinced a few of slavery’s former victims to switch to the other side.

    The link. Of course someone here will call all this a lie, umm wonder who that will be.

    Also just found this on Wikipedia and this you won't see taught in American schools either.

    African participation in the slave trade
    [​IMG]
    Slave traders in Gorée, Senegal, 18th century.
    Africans played a direct role in the slave trade, kidnapping adults and stealing children for the purpose of selling them, through intermediaries, to Europeans or their agents.[34] Those sold into slavery were usually from a different ethnic group than those who captured them, whether enemies or just neighbors.[citation needed] These captive slaves were considered "other", not part of the people of the ethnic group or "tribe"; African kings were only interested in protecting their own ethnic group, but sometimes criminals would be sold to get rid of them. Most other slaves were obtained from kidnappings, or through raids that occurred at gunpoint through joint ventures with the Europeans.[34]

    According to Pernille Ipsen, author of Daughters of the Trade: Atlantic Slavers and Interracial Marriage on the Gold Coast, Ghanaians also participated in the slave trade through intermarriage, or cassare (taken from Italian, Spanish, or Portuguese), meaning 'to set up house'. It is derived from the Portuguese word 'casar', meaning 'to marry'. Cassare formed political and economic bonds between European and African slave traders. Cassare was a pre-European-contact practice used to integrate the "other" from a differing African tribe. Early on in the Atlantic slave trade, it was common for the powerful elite West African families to "marry"-off their women to the European traders in alliance, bolstering their syndicate. The marriages were even performed using African customs, which Europeans did not object to, seeing how important the connections were.[88]

    Wikipedia probably lying too according to some.
