We see ourselves as an ethnic group- some more connected to the specific tribes (Ashkenazi, Sephardi, etc) than others.

There were several prominent Jewish families in the American South that had slaves. And Irish Catholics that had slaves. And Baptists. And I'm sure atheists. Black people had black slaves in Africa. Muslims had black slaves. Blacks had Muslim slaves.

And, guess what, there's still slavery out there today! No one race or ethnic group can say that it lacks either victims or perpetrators of the slave trade. Everyone has a piece of that history in their heritage- some sooner than others.

Everyone everywhere both owned and where slaves at some point in time. White people get the rap becuase A) It was at a time where the art of literature and historic documentation had come into maturity and B) It's used as a blunt force insturment to guilt wealthy nations (who happen to be white) into submitting to left-globalist programs.

for political reason and or gain...arab is an ethnic group, islam might as well be seen as an ethnic group if jewish can be seen as one. one group has ties to arabs and others do not

they were white people though.. not semitic arabic jews, semitic looking jews would not have the same freedom as whites
christians, like i said.. and right all slave masters and supporters were religous

wealthy nations benefited from it and did.. when africans defeated the french, spanish and mullatos european nations did not do business with them because of it and til this day haiti pays france reprirations


dont forget colonization thats cheaper and less time consuming than transpoting slaves for profit..
