    Again, Incomplete and 100% BS anecdote.

    Nothing like China's independently developed civilization.
    There was no Africa civilization comparable to the West or Asia pre-contact with that West (and Arabs) who made it a trading post not just for slaves, but for gold and trinkets.
    And I "presume" you forgot "Dr Livingtone"s 19th Century meeting after MONTHS of traveling through the savage tribal jungles of civilization-free Afrique.

    Pre-colonial/Pre-contact Africa was zilch. Unlike NE asia.

    Not all of sub-Sahara was raided for slaves either, but All of it is still ungovernable because
    avg IQ there is 70.
    Hybrid American 'Blacks' - 85... (avg 75% sub-Saharan, 25% 'white'/Euro)
    'White'/Euro IQ - 100
    NE Asian - 106
    (Stormfront wouldn't be happy about NE Asians and Ashkenazi Jews/113 having higher IQs. So save the "White Supremacist".. accusation/EXCUSE)

    And That (HARK!) is the way the world looks in accomplishment, domestically and globally.
    Reality is always a good plug in!
    The world makes sense only looking the the IQ lens.


    (PS Abeokuta was founded in 1830, and unlikely 200,000 by 1850.
    Even by 1911, Britannica had it at "60,000".
    The houses/structures mostly "Mud" despite a profusion of "granite" outcrops.

    1911 Encyclopædia Britannica/Abeokuta - Wikisource, the free online library

    1911 Encyclopædia Britannica, Volume 1
    Abeokuta

    ABEOKUTA, a town of British West Africa in the Egba division of the Yoruba country, S. Nigeria Protectorate. It is situated in 7° 8′ N., 3° 25′ E., on the Ogun river, 64 m. N. of Lagos by railway, or 81 m. by water. Population, approximately 60,000.

    Of course, we want to have one. We will NOT allow the terms of the discussion to be set by you.
    A discussion entails agreed upon histories, sources, and most importantly, a proper perspective in time.

    You are correct about one thing. Blacks did not make slavery legal, but neither did Americans. Blacks also did not make slavery illegal, American's did that.

    The entire start of this thread was based upon the premise (correctly) that slavery is not a 'whites-only' club, nor was it new when America was founded. In fact, every race has held slaves at one time or another.

    Yet here you and the others are, incensed at a bit of truth.

    What we will no longer have is this discussion based only on your terms. That's what is happening today and there is nothing you can do about it. You have avoided the truth and this entire thread is about that avoidance . Whites had slaves in the feudal system but went into Africa to purchase slaves in the countries they invaded and illegally occupied. That is the truth son, and you are too much of a chickenshit to face it.

    You actually wrote "American is did that". SMH. Literacy is a lost art.

    Americans did that, but only after the British did that and the the French did that (twice), as did Spain, Portugal, Holland and Denmark, amazingly without the use of superfluous apostrophes. And none of them needed a war to do so.


    That isn't the premise at all and nobody claimed any of your strawman, Peewee. Get the fuck outta here.

    You need to have discussions within your communities. The teenage sex and baby discussions would help all of us a lot. Babies and abortions are terrible when teenagers are involved.

    So, you do not want to have a conversation at all. I knew this though.

    No one is denying whites have gone into Africa to purchase slaves. The truth is, every race has done so, including the black race.

    I fear nothing. I knew your reply would be this. So much for that.
