Until Pop Jim stepped in, the grandkids believed the “only slaves” in the history of the planet, were blacks on white owned American plantations. I also told them to step lightly with the truth, since a liberal teacher who was confronted with irrefutable in stone facts, could make their lives a veritable Hell. I started with this: Top 10 Black Slaveowners - Listverse and this; Article: The Slaves That Time Forgot | OpEdNews Isn’t it strange that these in stone facts are not taught in our taxpayer funded public schools. I guess too much truth would level the field on the history of slavery; that being, most races, cultures, etc. endured slavery. Every race, culture, has had it’s drug through the shit periods in their histories. This is another truth never taught; Islam was “thee” very keystone in the African slave trade. Remember folks: THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE !
Oh Yeah, isn’t it strange that Sharpton never ever mentions this: Nobody on this list Top 10 Black Slaveowners - Listverse has affected the history of slavery quite as much as Anthony Johnson. He is rumored to have been the first black man to arrive in Virginia as well as the first black indentured servant in America. He was also the first black man to gain his freedom and the first to own land. As a true pioneer of firsts, Johnson couldn’t stop there. Ironically, he became the first black slave owner, and it was his court case that solidified slavery in America.
In 1635, Johnson was freed and given a 250-acre plantation where he was master over both black and white servants. In 1654, Johnson sued his neighbor in a case that would change America’s history forever. Johnson’s servant, John Casor, claimed he was an indentured servant who had worked several years past the terms of his indenture for Johnson and was now working for Johnson’s neighbor, Parker. Johnson sued Parker, stated that Casor was his servant “in perpetuity,” and the courts ruled in his favor. Casor had to return to Johnson, and the case established the principle in America that one person is able to own another person for the rest of their life.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ I watched Roots; and what a total crock of shit that was. Whites roaming the jungle - forests of Africa, and kidnapping blacks; when in reality, black ( so called kings ) kidnapped other blacks & sold them to Arab salvers. No doubt white owned slave ships were along the West coast of Africa; but the slaves were supplied by black kings & Arab slavers. Some trivia: Many, not all, but many slave ships were owned by Jews. Who Brought the Slaves to America? Jewish role in the …
From 1641 to 1652, over 500,000 Irish were killed by the English and 300,000 were sold as slaves. Ireland’s population fell from about 1,500,000 to 600,000 in one decade. Families were ripped apart as the English dd not not allow Irish fathers to take their wives and children with them.
During the 1650s, over 100,000 Irish children between 10 and 14 years were taken from their parents and sold as slaves. In 1656, Cromwell ordered that 2,000 Irish children be taken to Jamaica.
African slaves were often treated far better than their Irish counterparts.
African slaves cost 50 sterling in the late 1600s. Irish slaves came at no more than five sterling. If a planter whipped, branded or beat an Irish slave to death, it was never a crime. The English settlers then began to “breed” Irish women and girls as young as twelve with African men to produce slaves with a distinct complexion.
The major difference is Irish WORKED and didn’t make that define every generation after them . While blacks were always dependent generation after generation , looking for the "man " TO PROVIDE and whine and whine until the cows comes home .
BINGO. What I said; every race, culture had their drug through the shit periods in their histories; but the vast majority climbed out of the hole & got on with life. New York Times archives reveal "No Irish need apply …
Sep 10, 2015 · One particular job advertisement, from November 10 , 1855, advertised a position for “a young girl, 14 or 15 years old, either American or German, to take care of a young child. No Irish need apply .” Different variations
Why is there never a discussion about the religious group that owned the majority of the slave ships and who were the majority of slave holders by proportion of population size?
Many people were involved ( $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ ); and Jews were part of it. Many slave ships owned by Jews, and Jews had their fingers in other areas of slavery; but they were not alone. Who Brought the Slaves to America? Jewish role in the … I did see a list of slave ships owned by Jews; and it was extensive.
Its a continuation of the attempt to make us white people still feel guilty over something that happened centuries ago which we had no part of. Its diversion from reality and a strain of POLITICAL CORRECTNESS disease.
Al Charlatan wom"t face the truth as it wll draw attention from him.
Slavery existed from earliest times , not from the 17th century .
Parents are to self centered to actually care. As long as their Wellington or Anabelle receive passing grades and graduate , they don’t care.
This is a long read, but anyone interested in the origins of slavery should enjoy a full read. It claims that slavery historically began in the 18th century BC…possibly 1,800 years before Christ (or 3,800 years ago. This is not to say that slavery didn’t have its origins well before that time.
Hunter/gatherer tribes did not need or want slaves because each slave would have been just another mouth to feed. They grew and hunted only enough food to survive through the seasons of each year.
Though slavery is illegal in most of the world, it still exists in the USA and likely in every other nation. Human trafficking is a lucrative trade that can happen within a country or trans-nationally. People are still buying and selling people for various uses.
Typical of the invective that native-born Americans lapped up was this piece from the Chicago Tribune published in 1855:
“Who does not know that the most depraved, debased, worthless and irredeemable drunkards and sots which curse the community are Irish Catholics?”1
The Tribune would become a leading Republican newspaper. Another Republican paper, Harpers Weekly, claimed that “nearly seventy-five percent of our criminals and paupers are Irish…seventy-five percent of the crimes of violence committed among us are the work of Irishmen.”2
The key term is “they were Catholic”. I live in PA’s Coal Regions; and my great uncle, who was a union organizer, told me how bloody the time was. Struggling to scratch out a living in the coal mines; and the irony being, that many Irish who immigrated here to escape British persecution, found out many British had their fingers in the Anthracite Region of PA. Most mine bosses were Welch, and had their nose up the asses of the British. Then there were the Pinkertons, who were little more than professional hired thugs. The uncle’s older brother was shot & killed right in front of him. Then came the Molly Maguires, and the blood flowed. 176 unsolved murders in my county alone. 10 Things to Understand About The Molly Maguires – A … The Day of the Rope remains one of the largest official mass executions in American history.

Why is chattel slavery practiced by muslims today ignored by blacks?
Much East coast or trans-Saharan slavery was practiced by Arabs. Ronald Segal (who wrote on trans-Atlantic as well as Islamic slavery) suggested that while there is a tradition of debate about the former, the latter has been less satisfactorily explored. “There is a conscious and articulate black diaspora in the West that confronts the historical record of slavery and racism there,” he wrote in his 2001 book Islam’s Black Slaves: The History of Africa’s other Black Diaspora. “That Islam has no comparably conscious and articulate black diaspora to confront it with the reminders of slavery does not make that record any more immune to examination and judgement.”
Even then, slavery was not eliminated. Mauritania continues the practice, failing to enforce a 2007 law designed to end the practice. Anti-Slavery International reports that slavery is still to be found in Mauritania, Niger, Mali, Chad and Sudan. “People born into descent-based slavery face a lifetime of exploitation and are treated as property by their so-called ‘masters’. They work without pay, herding animals, working in the fields or in their masters’ homes. They can be inherited, sold or given away as gifts or wedding presents,” says the organisation.
Niger, Chad, Sudan, Mali, Mauritania
All 90%+ muslim.
Nation of Islam. Why would any black even associate with the word Islam; since Muslims were the very keystone in the African slave trade. That’s a head scratcher. Thomas Sowell [Thomas Sowell, Race and Culture, BasicBooks, 1994, p. 188] estimates that 11 million slaves were shipped across the Atlantic and 14 million were sent to the Islamic nations of North Africa and the Middle East. For every slave captured many others died. Estimates of this collateral damage vary. The renowned missionary David Livingstone estimated that for every slave who reached a plantation, five others were killed in the initial raid or died of illness and privation on the forced march.[Woman’s Presbyterian Board of Missions, David Livingstone, p. 62, 1888] Those who were left behind were the very young, the weak, the sick and the old. These soon died since the main providers had been killed or enslaved. So, for 25 million slaves delivered to the market, we have an estimated death of about 120 million people. Islam ran the wholesale slave trade in Africa.
120 million Africans
I wonder if anyone who heads an African Studies Program in any one of our institutes of higher learning would ever read a column such as we have here. Or would they even bother to avail themselves of the real history that is so easily attainable. Sad really.
Truth can be very painful; but it will always remain the truth.
Yes - it’s a fact that no one seems to want to talk about.
