A serious quandary that seems overlooked in modern sociopolitical thought:

Slavery was started by blacks a very long time ago. It continued for millennia. Effectively, if it was not for 'good' white male abolitionists, it would not have ended in America.

Why is it considered okay for blacks to have enslaved every race imaginable back to the beginning of time?

and

Why can't people of color admit that it was ended because of the persistent struggles for centuries or even millennia politically and socially of white men who abhorred the institution that black men started way back then?

Not being facetious. I would like to hear a good logical response to this that doesn't have to delve into simply insulting others for their race.

White CHRISTIAN abolitionists.

And females were a big part of that movement, incidentally. But that's okay, that fact just puts the lie to one of the many lies that racist, fascist progressives like to spread about Christians...i.e., that they don't empower women.

All races practiced slavery.

Whites bought into Africans slavery big time in the 15th century and made a fortune out of it.

White and black soldiers on the Union side crushed the white slavers on the Confederate side.

End of story of slavery in the USA.

Are you mad at progressives for women's suffrage?

Really- which 'blacks' started slavery?

Slavery is an institution as old as human civilization- if you want to argue that blacks started human civilization- well then you might have some basis for your argument.

Here in the United States, blacks did not start slavery, nor did blacks perpetuate slavery. Chattel slavery, which is the type of slavery that we had, was started by Europeans in the New World, initially enslaving native americans. But native americans died too fast- and African slaves were imported by European Americans.

Slavery in the United States was ended by the efforts of many people- following the efforts of many abolitionists- that included men and women- blacks and whites.

At the same time white men bitterly fought to preserve legal slavery in the United States.

Now that we have done away with the revisionist history- why are you bringing this up?

Yep- White Christian abolitionists- and black Christian abolitionists fought against slavery.

White Christian pro-slavers fought for slavery.

Women were represented in every group.

Benevolent white men also honored them by declaring them 3/5 of a person, where before they didn't count for anything. Blessed be the white man!
Oh that's a dem thing. The same guys today claim that Indian heritage is determined solely by blood quota. You have to be at least 30 percent Indian to be an Indian. Did you know that?

There is a difference in the slavery called chattel slavery and the slavery that was practiced by Blacks in Africa. The chattel slavery was the province of whites. The slavery practised in Africa was more along the lines of indentured servitude. There is a reason its called slavery. Whites practiced it on other whites. Its called "slave" after the Slavic people.

BTW...Whites and Blacks ended slavery. If not for the Black soldiers in the Union Army the southern losers would have won. If not for Black abolitionists influencing good ole Abe he would have never allowed it.

declaring them 3/5 of a person

had it been your way

the representatives from the slave states would have far outweighed

the representatives from the non slave states

which certainly would have propelled slavery much further into the future

but you knew that

So it's okay for blacks to have slaves.

But it's not okay for whites to have slaves.

Got it.

What a jump! Since colonization was a form of slavery as is imperialism...Which is worse a chattel slave or an economic slave?

Yeah. The slavery whites pushed made you an animal with no rights. The "good" slavery you remained a human. Which one would you rather be involved in as slave?

That explains why the good slavers sold their happy slaves to the whites.

OH SNAP!

As in..the good pimps are black. Their whores love themselves some prostitution!

But the bad pimps are white..they don't keep their whores happy...
