Yay History! · 5:00pm
Ok guys, here's a thingy for you guys. I'm sure ya'll have been accused of being a racist at some point because you're White or whatever right? Well guess what? Turns out that WE can do the same thing. Here's why...
Every race of people has been enslaved by another at some point. Whether that be the Jews in ancient Egypt or the German Tribes during the Roman Expansion over Europe. Even the Chinese were known to enslave their own, same with the Mongol Empire. A long ass fuckin' time ago from the years 1500 ad to 1800 ad (that's 300 years), White Christians were enslaved by African Muslims along the Barbary Coast of Africa. Approximately 1.25 million White people were enslaved over that course of time. About 150 White Americans have been enslaved by Algerian people (Algeria is in Africa) from 1785 to 1793. You want the big fuckin' kicker though? The total populace of African slaves in the United States was somewhere around 600,000 throughout a time period of about 245 years. The numbers of White slaves in Africa more than doubles that of African Slaves in America and for a slightly longer period of time. When I say America at that time, I mean Central, North and everything in between. The largest number of black slaves were in fact in the Portuguese America at 38.5%. About 9.7% of all African Slaves actually ended up in the English American Colonies (Todays USA).
So, in short, next time people wish to be uneducated fuckwads and pull the race card, tell them to look at their own people's history. What their ancestors did to us was just as bad as what our ancestors did to them. Stick that one in your pipe and smoke it.
