Do blacks not have anything but slavery as their history? Where do they have the gall to feel like it only happen to them. It has been the ancient history for all humankind. You would think blacks have the sole ownership of slavery. They can't compare to the enslavement of the world's females, which is as active now as it was in the beginning.

Without a doubt, the saddest part of our contry's history.
The second saddest part are the people who don't realize it.

no, they really don't have anything else in their history. Slave trade has been going on in Africa for at least 2 thousand years and probably longer. That was blacks enslaving blacks. Then about a thousand years ago the Arabs starting shipping black back to Persia and guess who they bought their slaves from? You guessed it, Black Slave owners. Same with the whites on the west coast of Africa. Bought their slaves from the other blacks themselves. Besides the obvious use of slaves as labor in Africa they were also sold as a food item. Slavery for dinner because the meat was so tender. That probably still goes on in places the Congo and Somalia.
