"Why did blacks sell others into slavery?"

African chieftains traded blacks into slavery in exchange for beads, trinkets, and other shiny objects. The black man's weakness for shiny objects can still be see today in his attraction to bling and chrome-plated rims.

Why do you people keep holding onto this as if it excuses anything.
If the whites brought the slaves to the Americas, and sent them an amusement parks. Do you really think anybody would be complaining?
What people are talking about is the unethical treatment of fellow human beings. What is so hard to understand about that.
well you most consider it was a different time. Europeans regularly sold their prisoners to the Spanish and even freed African American slaves owned black slaves. I think the idea of the victimized black man as popularized by the media to keep blacks feeling like victims. When people walk around feeling victimized, they often don't prosper. You see things like anger and poverty and therefore crime ( pretty much what you see in the black community today)

Much like the Indians here in North America in Africa there where different tribes. Much like the Indians one tribe would go to war with another tribe and the loser became the slaves to the winners. When the whites showed up in Africa they did not have to take blacks violently. One tribe sold the other to the white people.
In other words they where already slaves to other blacks!
This is a politically incorerect thing to say it just happens to be true.
Maybe blacks should point their anger in the right direction.... Africa.
Yes definitely,'the triangular slave trade' was when the British traded rum for African prisoners of war. To the winning tribe, selling their prisoners of war was considered the ultimate punishment for their enemies and it perfectly understood between the British and Africans that they'd be treated harshly and eventually worked to death. But later on the British and even the early Americans capture slaves under different circumstances and even when slavery was illegal.

In other words, blacks sold others into slavery, which wouldn't be an accurate statement.

African Chieftains BARTERED blacks into slavery in exchange for beads, trinkets, and other shiny objects. The black man's weakness for shiny objects can still be seen today in the form of bling, spinners, and chrome-plated rims.

Shiny objects have always been the black man's downfall.
