Yup that's what we have in a nut shell from people that post about whites being solely responsible for slavery in America.

perfect example of this blame whites but not blacks
the countries that sold blacks into slavery in Africa, 10 African nations involved in the slave trade - Think Africa

This is a valiant effort to minimize the history of shipping slaves from Africa to North America.

I'm guessing that we're now going to be seeing more and more of this kind of argument going forward.

They are more angry at long dead slave owners in history than they are with the current slave owners in Africa in 2022. You dont hear a fucking peep out of black people for modern day slavery. I guess its because they cant score political points for those slaves.

Minimize? No but to ignore where the white slavers got their slaves from is both disingenuous and a lie.

^ This is a valiant effort to blame slavery one one group of people, when every group on the planet was doing it.
This thread premise is what is called "false equivalency".

it is not false that with out black nations selling blacks there would have been no transatlantic slave trade.

What specific argument are you talking about? Is there something in the title, opening post, or article that is not accurate?

The opening post is not about shipping. It is about who was selling.

Every race on the planet has been involved in both sides of slavery.
