Racially Incorrect Facts on Slavery: African Slave Traders

Ask yourself this: In all of the gazillions of lectures and tirades (there have, as to date, been no genuine conversations) on slavery, have you ever heard of the names of John Currantee and Ephraim Robin John?

Such names—and there are many, many more—belong to a racially incorrect history of slavery, an historical account that threatens to rip asunder the ideological foundations of the Racism-Industrial-Complex (RIC), or Big Racism.

    The agenda-driven will always ignore, hide and deny any fact that gives the lie to their narrative. This is however what should be taught in American schools instead of the rubbish being pushed at present.

      In my “Black Studies” history course at a GTA secondary school in the mid 70’s, we were taught about glorious Black civilizations in Africa that the “Evil White Slave Traders destroyed and about the great accomplishments of the descendants of slaves like the inventor of the traffic light, the self oiling train coupling and of course George Washington Carver.

        I had no idea the GTA has been in the vanguard of bullshit for that long. I actually learned the true history of slavery during that same period in another province and under different circumstances. This knowledge was instrumental in getting me particular contracts later on in my career.

    And what they could not sell to the Euros they sold to the Arabs.

    None of which is taught, discussed or even on the table. We forget history very rapidly.

    Anyone want to talk about the Crusades?

      Another issue where public awareness/knowledge stands in stark contrast to historical facts.

    The truth about the history of slavery in the USA is inconvenient for the progressives and Left. It would mean connecting their stances on illegal immigration and borders to the age-old traditions of slavery as an economic strategy.

    …and whoever would have thought…..

    What bet that a fair few of the “kidnapped” were actually sold to the slavers by disgruntled members of the same tribe? What better way to rid oneself of a rival suitor or a general troublmaker in your group than having him shipped off to America.
