Why is it that blacks blame whites 100% for slavery when in fact, there were blacks that also had blacks as slaves themselves? Some blacks even sold other blacks into slavery! It seems to me, while I agree slavery was wrong, blacks are to blame as well.

That doesnÂ’t make sense blacks are to blame for people enslaving them?

I am a 41-year-old black woman. I do not want reparations or an apology from anyone who is white. I was never a slave. White people who are living today never served as my slave master. I don't blame white people for anything that has gone wrong in my life. The U.S. government certainly does not owe me anything. I do not seek preferential treatment because of my skin tone. I ask to be treated fairly, to be treated with respect, and to be treated with dignity. After all, I'm a law-abiding American citizen. I do not dwell in the past. Yet, I live in HONOR AND MEMORY of my ancestors. I always take advantage of the opportunities they never had. Let's face it, my ancestors had to fight a CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT. They were not thinking about themselves as they battled Bull Conner, they were thinking about me. That's when (we) black people started to get a fair shake in this country. As I sit in my air-conditioned office; I have a tendency to think about my ancestor who worked in a hot-cotton-field with a whip at his back. After all, SLAVES lived so we (blacks) could survive.

You are right, the other too idiots who replied to this are just some more of the thousands of people who only reiterate what they were told or what they memorized in college from a text book.
Indeed, there were blacks who enslaved other blacks, in fact it was blacks in Africa who sold slaves to the Europeans in exchange for guns, farm implements, and other goods. Most of the blacks that were sold to these whites were already slaves or were to be killed as captives. Also, don't believe all the nonsense about how they were beaten constantly by their masters and what not, think about this; if a slave owner bought a slave for a large sum of money to work his fields wouldn't it be in his best interest to keep said slave as healthy as possible so they could do the work, otherwise you've wasted your money.
Also, slaves were given a roof over their heads, food in their stomachs, and some were indentured servants, meaning they got payment for their work.
Even today, everyone is a slave. Slaves going to work, slaves paying thier bills, etc. Only today we call it having a job and living life.
Maybe that's why so many blacks are unemployed, it reminds them too much of slavery. That, and they think the world owes them something!

Either way, whites weren't the only ones whipping and killing black slaves. But it would be kinda stupid for blacks to be racist against other blacks, now wouldn't it?.
(Unless of course, their targets are LIGHTER SKINNED blacks then they are....)
You know... I keep hearing this statement, about blacks selling blacks into slavery yet... I've never seen a drop of evidence to support it.

Does ANYONE that repeats this have a verified source with collective evidence? Or is this something else everyone should blindly believe without questioning it?

That's true. Yet, you can't deny the fact that slavery was brutal and it was wrong!

Too bad you don't have any hard evidence to substantiate these claims. Newsflash: Chattel slaver actually existed. And guess what else, it was WRONG! I think you and your benighted brothers have HISstory contorted.

Ahem, that still doesn't excuse you from the fact that YOU TOO enslaved us, so don't make this slavery thing a one sided issue. I'm not denying that us blacks sold us out into slavery as it was true, but don't use that as an excuse to come down hard on us blacks for talking about slavery!

of course, and let's forget the Saudis, who only banned slavery in 1962. Let's also forget moslems in general, who enslaved more blacks than the whites ever did -only 4% of black slaves went to America. But let's ignore all that, and the white men who died in the civil war, and Wilberforce, let's blame it all on whitey .

"Slaves were gotten generally from wars and raiding. Wars between states and kingdoms such as Oyo and other Yoruba Kingdoms, became continuous during the 18th and 19th centuries. This led to a successful slave trade in ports like Whydah, Badagry, Lagos, Bonny, Old and New Calabar, while slave trade was striving, peace and normal life was disrupted in Africa."

Are you implying that I enslaved you, or my relatives enslaved you in some way.
First of all, to prove that ALL blacks blame whites no matter who they may be, let me start by saying my releatives had absolutely NOTHING to do with slavery. My relatives came south from Canada no further than Ohio, then west towards California. Now unless you care to dispute this fact that from Ohio north through to Canada was where the underground railroad led to, AND where slaves were running to.
Second, a lot of my relatives fought in the civil war for guess which side; THE NORTH which was fighting against slavery. If you care to question where I got my sources why don't you crack a book occasionally instead of b*tching about how oppressed you think you are.
In fact, instead of expecting something from the white man, I think you owe me and my civil war veteran relatives an apology and thanks for the freedom you obviously do NOT deserve.
If all you blacks want to keep bringing up the days of slavery, then you owe veterans of the civil war who fought and died for your worthless asses! Maybe white people who have relatives who fought for the north should start expecting thanks from blacks for helping to abolish slavery. Also blacks should thank all those who were NOT slave owners and risked everything they had to help smuggle your asses to the underground railroad. You ungrateful f*cks!

Why does this even matter? slavery was wrong. period. thats it. it doesn't matter who started it, the point is it was wrong and now its over. i just believe we shouldn't forget the hardships they went through.
