Do you realize how many people have been enslaved through military conquest.... you think they had it better than black slaves in this country? Do you remember the Christians being thrown to the lions for the entertainment of the masses?

Are you fricken kidding me with this sh*t

EDIT: FWIW, I'm not trying to defend slavery. Clearly evil was committed and blacks were exploited. But let's not just throw everyone from that period of time under the bus... and let's not ignore the black on black slavery that took place simultaneously in Africa.
You should like Andy on that episode of the Office when he thought his ancestors owned Michelle Obama's ancestors.
