    Yea their fellow Africans shouldnt have sold them into slavery. When looking back was the best thing to happen to that race....they got a free ride to America and now their children live in the best country in the history of the world. They could still be living in ****ty Africa getting raped to death by lions with AIDS.

    That's disgusting, really.

    How about you start a petition online and let the free market work it out. If you don't like "commie" stuff being sold, demand that Amazon stop selling it. Create an outrage. There is a reason this is happening, its because people are no longer rolling over and allowing a racist symbol to exist. I would love for the same to be true about every disenfranchisement around the world, ever.

    But Africans weren't selling their "fellow" Africans into slavery.....they were selling their "enemies" just like Greeks and Romans once did. It's estimated that well over 12 million blacks from Africa were sold into slavery in America in less than 400 years, which was so huge that it changed the genetic map of the world. So, I find it extremely hard to believe that Africans could've done that all on their own without the help of white slavers and their Trans Atlantic slave trade.

    When looking back was the best thing to happen to that race....they got a free ride to America and now their children live in the best country in the history of the world. They could still be living in ****ty Africa getting raped to death by lions with AIDS.
    That argument goes back to Robert E. Lee just before the war....

    "...The blacks are immeasurably better off here than in Africa, morally, socially & physically. The painful discipline they are undergoing, is necessary for their instruction as a race, & I hope will prepare & lead them to better things. How long their subjugation may be necessary is known & ordered by a wise Merciful Providence..."

    Basically, what you're saying is that blacks prefer slavery in America to poverty in Africa. But you ignore the effect the Atlantic slave trade had on Africa that helped to make it poor in the first place. You also ignore the fact that blacks really didn't have a choice and were taken against their will. And you also ignore that the fact that poverty does not justify slavery, both of which blacks have endured largely because of whites.
