I’m sorry white people learned to degrade Africans from the Muslims. The millions of black africans who sold their own family members to muslims for centuries so they could get luxuries doesn’t speak of a culture I want to parade around. A collectivist culture in which all sacrifice for the good of the Big Man. At least sub-saharan Africa is/was that way.
Carthage, Mali, Egypt and until the last sixty years Ethiopia were all respected for their education and culture. Even today though there are tens of thousands of mainly women who are enslaved in modern day Morocco even though by law they should be free. Sadly they are a pretty advanced nation in Africa. Now the catholic church, the evangelicals, muslims, and the local shamans have all colluded together to create a witch pandemic in their pursuit of power. Luckily this gives them the power to pretty much murder any gay or atheist person they happen to run into. Uganda is trying to make it all legal like.
Historians estimate that between 11 and 18 million Black Africans were enslaved by Arab slave traders and taken across the Red Sea, Indian Ocean, and Sahara desert between 650 and 1900, compared to 9.4 to 14 million Africans brought to the Americas in the Atlantic slave trade from 15th century to the early 19th century.
Basically humans suck. Africa is screwed because of religion and it is cursed with a lot of precious resources the US, europe, china, and india aren’t going to give back to the natives.
Right now there are at least 25 million people enslaved which is the highest number in history…not that many people care…that’s not even counting corporate wage-slaves!
Oh, and most of this I learned in my Black Studies Class. The rest from reading history. If black people hadn’t overthrown various rulers in the middle east/iraq the muslims would have kept demand and price up which would have meant that the Portuguese wouldn’t have been able to pull off their sugar plantations on the islands of the coast of africa and history would have changed with poor chinese and probably poor eastern europeans would’ve provided all the labor to build america.
