Without black people selling black slaves, white men would have no way to purchase them. They sure as heck weren't going to venture into the jungle with butterfly nets.

Slavery exists today as well in Asia and other places. Sex slave trading continues to this day, even in America where a couple here on Long Island was recently caught. To try to pin anything on only white people is bigoted, and equally ignorant of history and facts.

this.
