How can that possibly make a difference? What happened in Africa doesn't justify what our country did.
Because of such things as the 1619 project.

The project was created to teach children in state run schools all across the country about racism in the US. The date, in fact, is wrong. Slaves were in the colonies well before that, but facts are not what the project is about. The project was created by the Left to teach children:

1. The country was based upon racism and slavery, thus their very foundation is rotten, thus the country must be destroyed and rebuilt for socialism/Marxism

2. White Americans are the root of all racism in the world. Racism is not merely the dark side of all human nature, it is a white American problem only. As Louis Farrakhan would say, they be white devils.

The reality is slavery is and was rampant all over the world because people suck. In fact, today there are more slaves than at any other time in human history, but politicians on the Left are more concerned about racism hundreds of years ago than they are freeing the modern day slaves of today, and it's all for political points.

But in reality, the US took in very few slaves. The difference, however, was that in the US those slaves were allowed to have families, as where in other places in the world they simply worked the slaves into their graves. But because slaves in the US were treated better, they reproduced which ended up giving the US more slaves than other countries. Then entered the democrats will the KKK and Jim Crow later on after Lincoln and the GOP freed them. That is the main difference here compared to the rest of the world.

IMHO, Caucasian Americans are not the "root of all racism."

By the middle (?) of the next century, Caucasians will probably be a very small part of the American population, which will consist mostly of (in order of numbers) Hispanic Americans, African Americans, & Asian Americans.

IMHO, racism at that future time will be even worse than it is today.

I agree. Racism isn't a condition limited to white people. That narrative is a lie.

The main reason that the Portuguese financed the initial exploratory trip to W. Africa was to;
-Avoid the N. African Muslims and the Ottomans to the East.
-Second, they got a copy of a map that showed the N. African Muslim desert slave trading route into Timbuktu Mali. They discovered that they
could sail south and bypass the Muslims and find tribes willing to sell slaves.

The Muslims were involved in the slave business for 1,000 years before the USA was even a country.

If sowell is trying to justify American slavery by pointing at what happened elsewhere, they use similar misleading tactics.

That's the same logic that when you watch a TV program and 100 pound women beat the crap out of 200 pound men and you believe it. Its all about who does the promoting of the facts that can be propaganda.

Indentured servitude was difficult, deadly work, and many indentured servants died before their terms were over. But indentured servitude was temporary, with a beginning and an end. Those who survived their terms received their freedom. Servants could even petition for early release due to mistreatment, and colonial lawmakers established different, often lesser, punishments for disobedient servants compared to disobedient slaves. Above all, indentured servitude wasn’t hereditary. The children of servants were free; the children of slaves were property. To ignore this is to diminish the realities of chattel slavery, which—perhaps—is one reason the most vocal purveyors of the myth are neo-Confederate and white supremacist groups. The fact that indentured servants existed still doesn't justify chattel slavery that was vastly more common in the U.S.

The narrative by the race hustlers in the USA is the Black community were the only ones who ever experienced slavery. It's a false narrative and you can't accept that.
