    There certainly is, if the question is when each one abolished slavery. In Britain's case it was 1833, for France it was 1848. For us it was 1865.



    That would be the USSR, mainly.

    And all meaningless...............they transported slaves...they did not have slaves in their own countries......and guess what...we abolished the slave trade with Africa the same month Britain did.....but we still had millions of slaves in our country...

    Of the two Countries....and all the others.....we had the biggest hall to actually end slavery........

    Again...America is the Greatest country in the world........


    Slave Trade Act 1807 - Wikipedia

    Britain used its international strength to put pressure on other nations to end their own slave trade.[7] The United States acted to abolish its Atlantic slave trade the same month on 2 March (but not its internal slave trade). Article 1, Section 9, Clause 1 of the United States Constitution forbade the closing of the slave trade for twenty years, until 1808.

    OK I tried it. Didn't work. Because it had already been done 177 years earlier.

    No...the U.S.S.R. didn't win the war...the United States did...if we had not resupplied the Soviets, and invaded Europe and Africa, Russia would be in German hands today.....Stalin screwed up completely...and only our intervention in the war saved them....you can try your best rewriting of history Good Will Hunting...but it ain't the truth...

    All of those European countries....all they did was end transport of slaves on their ships.....whoop tee doo.......none of them had an entrenched slave culture...which they freaking created over here...that they had to deal with........

    This just came to me today, after years of seeing these left wingers constantly use slavery and Britain to attack the U.S.....

    It was a team effort, but no nation put more into it than the USSR. By far.

    That's the history, like it or lump it.

    Because they kept screwing up....they lost huge because they were incompetent and evil.......and if the United States hadn't been in the war the Soviet Union would be part of Germany now.........The United States allowed the Soviets to survive long enough for the German's to be defeated........you can't hide that fact or make up things about the Soviets that just aren't true...no matter what that book by that left wing historian tries to say....

    Britain, France, Spain, Portugal and even Holland and Denmark (and the Denmark-Norway union) ALL had colonies in the Americas, where slave labor was used. That's why they all appear on my chronology listed above.

    If that's not an entrenched slave culture, perhaps you can tell us why blacks in Haiti speak French, and on the other side of the island in the DR, Spanish. Or why Brazilian ones speak Portuguese, or those in the ABC islands speak Papiamento. And of course here, and in Jamaica, and Guyana and Belize etc -- English.
