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.
Blacks didn't start the slave trade and they sure as hell didn't create Liberia, and I love that you just said this.

I'm not trying to be rude, but did you honestly just make all of this up? Do some research on colonization from Spain, Portugal, and the American colonization society.

Really?

Look slavery has happened to all races, colors, creeds, sexes, whatever.. blacks enslaved blacks, whites enslaved blacks, blacks enslaved whites, Egyptians on Jews, English on Catholics, Americans on Irish, etc.. bigotry, discrimination, slavery, whatever.

The problem though is that the white man's guilt has been exacerbated and movies like this further the tension and further dilute history (making all of one group look evil).

Were all Germans evil simply because they wore the Nazi uniform? I think not. Were all whites evil because they had slaves? I think not. If this movie portrays such, it's not doing anyone any good.

Anti-white bigotry has become embedded in our postmodern culture. Take Django Unchained. The movie boils down to one central theme: the white man as devil—a moral scourge who must be eradicated like a lethal virus. For decades, Hollywood, U.S. textbooks and higher education have stressed that America was founded upon slavery, sexism and genocide. In other words, white European civilization is the root of evil and imperial subjugation around the world.

Sounds about right


What are they b1tching about again?

How many movies has Hollywood produced in which they inaccurately portray another country as evil? No big deal here.

Seriously? Maybe hop off the "evil white Americans" bandwagon that's popular in several history departments and learn something real.

Check out the Hindu Caste system, the Arab spread through North Africa, and the Reconquista, for starters. Next read up about the anti-Semitic history of Europe.

Also, look even farther back to the Greek city states. They had some interesting views on superiority and inferiority.

While nothing excuses American slavery, it's a stretch to claim that it's the worst thing to ever happen to the world. Like Chase said, slavery existed in the world long before America.

Check out the histories of China, Japan, Mongolia, India, Iran, the Middle East, and Africa for some other major examples of imperial subjugation.

Calm down bro. I am very familiar with all but the Hindu Caste system. The Reconquista, the spread of Islam in Africa had nothing to do with what we are talking about. And anti-semitism in early europe doesn't have anything to do with race. Sorry bud.

Also, I don't "hate the evil white Americans." For one, I fvcking love America and as a halfie, I pride my white side. Although it isn't American white, but English white, which as we know is more pearlescent and glittery.

The Reconquista was definitely a period of institutionalized racism in the Iberian peninsula, and anti-semitism is about discrimination of people of Hebrew descent, not just Jews.

As for North Africa and the Arabs, not sure how you can say you know about the spread of the caliphates without understanding that they also had periods of institutionalized racism. Against whites, against Turks, and against light-skinned Africans, among others.

The Hindu caste system has been evidenced in writings from as far back as the second century A.D.

Slaves were really just a steady source of blood for the vampires of the South.
