What's not a myth is one human owning another whether during Egyptian times, Barbary coast, whites owning blacks or blacks owning whites or Eastern European child trafficking is all horrible.

Many races have played a part. Some still do.

Its racist to say that. You can only talk about American Slavery with Africans.
That's worse then saying "All lives matter"

I believe most intelligent people discount those who perpetuate "slavery" as some sort of us invention. Many seek to gain economically by focusing on white vs black us slavery, ignoring all aspects of trade or ownership that don't further their agenda.

So what's your point? ... So do you have a specific point or is this just a history lesson with some kind of agenda?


It seems this is part of a dialog between people who think the US invented slavery, and those who know it did not.

I can't say I personally have seen anyone make such a silly argument. But I guess anything is possible.

So it's basically a strawman thread.

Unless I am mistaken and there is someone who is dumb enough to take the con position.

Usually this sort of thing is discussed every time we refight the civil war.

Had the southern secession succeeded (which it came close to with British help) slavery would have faded away anyway due to advances in agricultural  technology.

Think now m'lad.  You say 1% owned slaves, however, 100% COULD own slaves since it was legal in the United States.  Don't tell me it wasn't legal in the North because a person in the north could move below the Mason Dixon line and buy a slave if he chose to.
