Multiculturalists, being devoid of convincing arguments, use black slavery as a club to beat white people over the head and into submission. After clubbing by academia, media, and others, many Whites have capitulated to the Progressives’ guilt-preaching that has produced copious tears because of their cursed whiteness and white privilege.
Frankly, such unfair, untrue, and unfortunate “missionary” activity by Progressives is demeaning to Blacks and distorts the historical tragedy perpetrated by depraved white slavers, degenerate black chiefs, and desperate settlers in America and other areas of the world. Black slavery is a scandal, a scab, and a scar on the face of America and we must never permit it to be mistaken, muddled, or mitigated; however, with the fanatics in the media, a balanced narrative is unlikely to happen.
Honest white people are willing to say, “Okay, I’m embarrassed that white people were involved in such an obscene practice; but no living American slaves exist, nor do any slave-owners, nor do any of the ship captains. So can we tone it down a few notches?” But the whiners are like all fanatics who only have one message and refuse to stop talking about it. Like a bulldog with a tasty, meaty bone, they won’t let go.
The zealots in the media refuse to speak of a few southern farmers who owned slaves, and a few ship captains who transported slaves, and a few chiefs who sold their own people. They insist on collective guilt demanding that all whites wallow in shame and never look any decent person in the eyes and feel like the scum of the earth for being white.
Sorry, but I have no guilt for slavery; consequently, I will not pay a dollar of reparations because of those Blacks who are full-time victims wallowing in self-pity looking for lifetime handouts.
Since their dishonest, dishonorable, and disgraceful ploy will not work, I suggest the do-gooders (as opposed to those who do good) turn their efforts elsewhere. Like the actual slavery happening throughout the world. They should do something lasting rather than preach an empty message for financial gain and personal influence.
Many modern Blacks identify vicariously to attempt to transfer the pain, determination, and character of thousands of slaves who survived chattel slavery, but that won’t work. People aren’t noble, principled, and special because of past generations; each generation must fight their own battles, take the same stands, and reap their own rewards. They must also admit the failure of the culture of broken families, illegal drugs, illegitimate births, violence, etc., and play their part in doing something about the slide into a culture of disarray, decay, and death. All families are on a slippery slope but minority families are accelerating dangerously. It’s time to stop blaming others and make a positive effort toward a solution.
Young Blacks need to stay in school, get a job—any job, and keep their pants on and zipped up and pulled up. They need to talk in a way all English-speaking people can understand them. When married, they should keep their vows and show children what a real man and woman should be.
If the fanatic slavery whiners really do care about slavery, they can do something about the overt slavery in Mali where at least 200,000 people are held in direct servitude to masters. In March 2002, French television channel TF1 reported how about 15,000 children were abducted from Mali and were sold as slaves to work the cotton plantations in the Ivory Coast.
That would be a good place to start but who cares about Mali. Not much news there. So, a greater challenge would be India where it is estimated that there are forty million people, including fifteen million children, working in slave-like conditions as bonded laborers.
Serge Trifkovic courageously revealed the slavery by the Muslim Arabs in Mauritania and Sudan in his The Sword of the Prophet: A Politically-Incorrect Guide to Islam. “Contrary to the myth that Islam is a religion free from racial prejudice, slavery in the Moslem world has been, and remains, brutally racist in character. To find truly endemic, open, raw anti-Black racism and slavery today one needs to go to the two Islamic Republics in Africa: Mauritania and Sudan. Black people have been enslaved on such a scale that the term black has become synonymous with slave.”
I dealt with Muslim slavery in my book, ISLAM: America’s Trojan Horse! writing “Mohammed also permitted…the torture of a tribal chief to discover his hidden treasure. He accepted slavery as a law of nature.” I challenged domestic Muslim leaders to join me at the Sudan Embassy in Washington to “demand that Sudan stop its slavery and imprison all slavers–buyers and sellers.” I got no response.
Or, maybe one country is not enough of a challenge so they can take a shot at world slavery. The Topical Research Digest: Human Rights and Contemporary Slavery reports about 27 million slaves worldwide. However, it reveals that “Some human rights organizations have the number as high as 200 million” (Free the Slaves 2007).
Past and present and potential slavery is a problem that must be examined without presumption or prejudice, but with purpose and perseverance.

Fact, Fraud or Faith?

Only an uninformed fanatic says that evolution or creation can be proved scientifically. Christians believe in creationism because we believe in the veracity of the Bible but we also have scientific evidence to support our position. In every debate I’ve had with evolutionary scientists, the arrogant, asinine accusation is made, “Well, evolution is scientific while creationism is religion.” Evolution is about as scientific as a voodoo rooster plucking ceremony in Haiti. Almost.
