enslaved Africans???<quoted text>
The most evil empire the world has ever known will undoubtedly be destroyed, for a government and its people which committed the worst Holocaust in the history of mankind, enslaved Africans and has ever since been waging wars of aggression against innocent children, women and men all over the world is DOOMED. As we now know, even the Tchechens hate America...
Germany's connections with slavery are a little complicated to work out. Gerany as a unified political entity in the 15th century did not exist. The Holy Roman Empire was a lose confedertion under the Hapsburg (Austrian) emperor which was to fracture further during the Reformation (16th century). German states did not have American colonies or Atlantic navies. This was complicated somewhat with the acession to power of Charles V. His domains included Spain. Thus at a critical period in the development of the African slave trade, Spain was ruled by an essentially Austrian (German) emperor. Charles V substantially expanded the Atlantic slve trade. He granted a Flemish courtier Lorenzo de Gorrevod authority to ship 4,000 captive Africans to the America (1518). This was the beginning in earnest of the slave trade.
