Pfffftttttt! Only white europeans are guilty of perpetrating slavery on folks. We get reminded constantly of that. Despite the fact that slavery exists still today in some places. Butt, when you're the bad guy, own it. Or not.

The word “slave” comes from Slav, the ethnic group that served as the majority of slaves in the Ottoman Empire.

LOL - and as pointed out in the article, it is because the blacks enslaved by the west were not castrated, so they have descendants ;) However, with the efforts of Margaret Sanger and her Planned Parenthood acolytes, they are trying to correct what they see as the error of western ways.
Thank God for the pro-life Christians working so valiantly to protect our fellow citizens!

Arabs enslaving Africans continues today. But never mind that. The UN is not interested.

one of the largest slave owners in America was a black man- infact there were a number of black slave owners-
of course liberals will label those owners as uncle toms to excuse that fact away-

As horrible as the selling of humans was, the descendants of the Blacks that ended up in the US have faired Better than anywhere throughout black history, including those that stayed in Africa

There will always be slavery in one form or another in peoples minds one way or another. But it’s something the black community will never get past even though they are not slaves today here unless by choice.

At the time of the founding of this country there were more White Christians enslaved in the ME & Africa than there were African slaves here.
That's not counting Christians native to those areas that were enslaved.

As I traveled in the Ivory Coast, my interpreter would explain to me how certain villages were his ancestors slaves.
It is not all Muslim.

Check out an old book entitled “Negroes in Negroland”. It is a compilation of journals written by white African explorers and slave traders, published in 1868.

Blacks in America should thank God their ancestors were enslaved. Few of these would even exist if not.
The Bible tells the story of how God liberates the Israelites from slavery of the Egyptian Pharaoh in Exodus.

There is so much lack of education about the facts of slavery it is shameful. Take out the Arabs and the black African coastal dwellers / slave hunters and there is virtually no 'American' slavery in the 18th century.
But, for me, one of the most overlooked facts about slavery in America is the number of white slaves, starting in the 16th century. Oh sure, they are called 'indentured servants' - explain how that differs from slavery.

Speaking of evil Europeans there is an irony about the Yankee states abolition movement as it was built on the wealth of the New England Cod trade with Caribbean nation slave plantations.
