Slaves were used by and large by the plantation owners because the "Nawtheners" wanted cheap tobacco etc. Can you say "Not willing to page a decent price?"
So cheap prices meant cheap labor.
The amazing part is the slavers who went to Africa to get the cheap labor were lead by other Africans to where the cheap labor could be found in whatever villages, etc.
You think whitey had a clue where to go?
I dare say they were led by other Africans to find more Africans and yet it is whiteys fault.
I seem to remember a few years ago, an offer was made to pay for return passage to Africa. Last I heard, no takers.
Now the black Americans just desire financial compensation.
Here's your compensation, a boat ticket. You came by boat, you can return by the same conveyance.
Yeah. I know. politically IN-correct!
Truth usually is. . .
Just tear down another statue rather than examine a problem from both sides.
I dare say the typical Southern Democrat will welcome Big Brother today.
Dear Big Brother, Just keep sending the checks.
