"When is SOUTH America going to get railroaded for having more african slaves than N. America ever did?"
Add to this Central America and the Caribbean islands and you are dead on correct. Brazil was the recipient territory that received most of the black African slaves. Around 95% percent of the African slaves who were sent to the new world arrived in South America, Central America, and the Caribbean islands. Only 5% of them arrived in what later became the United States. The total number sent to the new world was 12.5 million. Initially most all that came to the American colonies were indentured servants who were able to work off their indenture debt and become free. The first large slave holder in Virginia was one of these freed indentured black servants.
Slavery is an abomination. England, Spain, and the Dutch, and later the northern states, should never have brought them over here. But they did and our early history is tainted by it.
In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?
