    They did in America, and that is what he is referring to. Please don't play stupid as I know you are not.

    You're wrong. The Spanish brought slaves to the islands. They then came to Florida.

    Slavery started in Africa, black on black.

    #3 - If they weren't listening to Abraham Lincoln, what makes you think they'd be open to you "educating" them.

    #4 - You're talking in feel good sound bytes.

    #5 - There's a world of difference between trying to educate and actually educating. To assume you could achieve the latter is arrogant. It's noble. But it's not reality.

    No, they didn't. Slavery has roots that go way further back than colonialism. Please don't play stupid as I know you are not.

    You won't get very far with disseminating this kind of truth to the black race baiters and the white "guilt monkeys".

    Don't put words in my mouth. I did not say "it has very little to do with anything anymore" that makes you a liar.

    I said it has little to do with my initial statement.

    Africans did not take other Africans thousands of miles away. African slaves could marry into the family etc. It was not even remotely the same.

    So then they perpetuated it for many years... Not much better.

    Yes, you said you would educate them. That's why I questioned your naivete.

    It is EXACTLY the same. Africans sold other africans as property. Slavery is slavery is slavery is slavery. It doesn't matter if the yard nigger can become a house nigger some day by giving head to the massa' or not. It's still slavery and not something I am willing to stomach.
