"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?
A big black guy was in our car pool in the sixties and he said that what hurt was when he came home after serving his country during the war and they made him use the back door to enter restaurants. He said " I know you are good boys and you wouldn't have made me do something like that." But I knew that I would have been just as ignorant as any white person in those days. They change the whole story these days but they can't take away the pain in my heart when I think about old Herb and how he was treated. What they are teaching these young people in schools doesn't do justice to what it was really like and how everybody who was an American was involved whether they wanted to be or not. So it's not how they portray racial relations these days that bothers me it is the fact that they are destroying the real story of what happened and if it is not told, right, then nobody learned from it.
