Whites were allowed to be whipped etc and they were taken w/o their consent from Europeon nations just like blacks where. There is proof that this occured. Here are a few links that contain the facts that all those who believe differently should read. Educate yourself if you don't believe whites were slaves in America and treated just as badly or even worse than blacks. http://www.saveyourheritage.com/white_slavery... along with http://www.revisionisthistory.org/forgottensl...

Even if our ancestors were slaves, who cares? It's 2013. This has nothing to do with us in a physical manner. I am not too proud to admit that whites were slaves

In the Caribbean there were Irish slaves. Some were referred to as "Red Legs" due their fair-skin legs getting red under the sun.

it does not matter who were slaves first but this being revealed does nothing but show why black people should be more angry about this because no it makes blacks being enslaved as a act of retaliation some racist white dude come up with one day, i think the main reason black people are mad(well atleast the reason im pissed off about slavery) is the aftermath blacks were still hung from trees beat down for now reason and dont even get me started on the kkk the fact of the matter is had slavery had just been abolished and left it how it was black people would not be that mad the fact there are people out there who bring up the next generation on racism and think of new ways to piss black people is just sad, its needs to end otherwise blacks will riot we've done it twice before if we need to do it again to finally get our point across im pretty sure we'll do it again

so-called black people have been in america long before there was white skin on this earth..the so-called negro has been here before any race of people calling themselves native americans...all history is moorish history that has been stolen and made to fit some others...so if you are not melinated you actually have no history, your history has been lies, stolen by your forefathers from so-called negroes,blacks,and so-called african americans...aka the murrs-moors

Let's be clear. Those whites were indentured servants brought from England basically. They only had to serve so long before their freedom was granted. Their time was normally because of debts or crimes committed. Slavery (for life) and Indentured Servitude, there is a huge world of difference.
Indentured servitude was a crock! They were
kid-nabbed/kidnapped sold into slavery and then beat or worked to death!(Irish brothers and sisters R.I.P.)

Remember even today there is black on black crime- does the european america ansestors care - the answer is no --- You talk about slavery - but since america was built on slavery with cotton and many other goods including the actual money made by slavery don't the ones who picked it & "slaved" for america count - America still should pay for that labor it stole - and slavery was stealing - the founding fathers would agree - such as Alexander Hamilton & George Washington - without labor this counrty was nothing & the founding fathers knew it but what european was fit or wanted such low class labor much like the Mexican and low income people of today- the is no excuse & since this country owes so much to the forced sacrifice it should pay - and the New Deal does not count that is for all Americans this issue was even before 1750 - how could America not own up to this easy truth - the is no debate left - so focus on honor like Our Founding Fathers - what would they want if they were slaves or ancestors
Well since you think America should pay don't forget all the other races that were slaves to! like the Irish, well over a million Irish slaves were killed (the numberwas quite a bit higher because they were seen as trash and weren't counted as well) don't you think they deserve their reparations to! Oh wait there white! No thanks I'll just go work for my money!

Indentured servants aren't slaves, they are laborers under contract. They CHOSE that in exchange for something. They weren't KIDNAPPED AND FORCED to work for free and have their captors babies.
... and yes, the fact that Blacks were enslaved for hundreds of years does make a big difference. Stop comparing apples and oranges.
Last quote and I'm done the term kid-nabbed or kidnapped literally means stealing a child and selling them into slavery! Yes they were kidnapped and soled into SLAVERY not indentured servitude! What you people just can't stand the fact that their were and still is in some parts of the world WHITE slaves! Boo Hoo!

The Irish were enslaved for centuries in Ireland, but also in America. In fact, in Louisiana there were blacks who owned Irish slaves.
Slaveowners were known to have forcibly bred Irish with blacks to "improve the stock" (interesting since the English racists considered BOTH to be very inferior versions of humans).
People talk a lot about Africans enslaving Africans, but don't forget Europeans enslaved PLENTY of other Europeans, going back thousands of years.
Could you send me some information on those called blacks who owned Irish slaves in Louisiana I'm having a hard time with that one!
