I am curious, and I've been curious about this for a long time. How do American blacks of the present feel about their African cousins who sold their ancestors into slavery? If the Africans had not sold their ancestors into slavery, American blacks wouldn't be in America today. They would be in Africa, and not nearly as well off; life in America is much better than life in Africa. So how do American blacks feel about their African cousins? I know that some blacks claim that their ancestors were kidnapped by whites and transported to the Americas. But that is just crap.

During slave times, Europeans did not have the power to capture large numbers of people in Africa. And the kidnapping of individuals was both counterproductive and uneconomical. It would enrage local chiefs and kings and caused trouble; it wasn't worth it. The slave traders were in a wholesale business, and time was money. True Europeans had the gun, but the matchlock, the gun of the time, was not much of a weapon. The gun's only real advantage over the bow was easy to use; it required much less training. The Africans had the matchlock as well. And Africans were organized into nations with kings and armies; a few whites in a boat had little chance of overcoming a country or even a village. It was the local kings who captured entire armies of blacks and sold them into slavery

Africans did not make slavery legal here. Africans did not force whites to buy their prisoners of war. Africans did not create black codes, jim crow, northern segregation or the modern racism of whites today. You post is bullshit as Africans were indeed kidnapped in some cases and in others whites would arm one tribe with guns and then buy the captives. Your opinion regarding this matter is disingenuous and that's being polite.

And it only took an African American suing in court to make it legal.

I don't think they give a shit. After all, my ancestors in Europe were bloody killers in Germanic wars. (Not the world wars, unless I had cousins fight). You don't see me laughing at the poor Europeans they killed.

How do American 'Europeans' feel about their European cousins who slaughtered and starved their ancestors?
I doubt that many even think about it; to them, the world didn't begin until after they were born. The suffering of the past has long been forgotten. It is interesting to think that if life in Europe had not been so oppressive and brutal that we would have most likely never come here, and we wouldn't be Americans today, the freest people on earth.

No, I just happen to be black with a lot of African friends.

Are your African friends black? After all they could be Jewish, white Muslim, or even white Christian.

Africans made slavery legal in Africa. How do you feel about them selling your ancestors?

They should be thankful for their industrious and warmongering ancestors.
