I hate when people say “well let’s take race out of the senerio”. How the fuck can you remove race from humanity? Everyone is a race. There are no clear people running around unless you’re a ghost. Then you’re dead. The system and society favors whites over all other races….
Quite frankly my dear, I don’t give a rats ass about the Roman Empire, the Arabs and how long slavery has been going on. When you try to isolate race from a high profile crime like Trayvon Martin or the young woman who was asking for help and got shot, then that’s were the problem occurs. This wasn’t just a boy walking to the store at night, this was a BLACK boy walking at night. If he was seen as just a teenager he wouldn’t have gotten shot. If this young lady was white she wouldn’t have been shot in the head. I figured someone white would get a hold of this and try to flip how a person of color should feel or what we should know about shit we experience everyday. And since we are on the subject of slavery, yes I am aware slavery was going on before the Atlantic slave trade ;however, the Atlantic slave trade had to be the worst form of slavery in the history of slavery. What other group of slaves were raped and beaten? What other group of people were opressed and fucked with psychologically? The difference between black slaves and other slaves is that the Atlantic slave trade was about race and oppression while other forms of slavery was about fair trade or buisness related.
What other slaves where raped and beaten? Uh… most of them? A slave, being seen as property, tends to have little to no rights regardless of who the slaver is and who the enslaved. To say the slavery of other races, and in other periods of time did not involve beatings or rape sure is a ridiculously delusional claim.
Are you really going to say “other forms of slavery were about fair trade”? Or simply: “business related”?
Please do tell me how an African dude worked to death by an Arab was fair trade whereas an African dude worked to death by a white man was oppresive? Both were equally oppressive and both where about race. Both where also about business, as the slaves where reduced to the level of merchandise. They became objects to be used rather then human beings. There is no difference with the Atlantic slave trade and slavery in other parts of the world and\or the world’s history. Not in terms of cruelty, inhumanity or brutality. If anything, the scale of the Atlantic slave trade was larger and the effects still noticeable as it went on long. But then again, slavery in Mauritania, an African country, was not outlawed officially until 1981.
You are a ridiculous person making ridiculous claims on things you obviously know nothing about. Congratulations on succesfully making a complete ass of yourself, and proving to the world how useless the social justice crowd on tumbr really is.
Also, you are extremely dismissive of the horrors of slavery that happens to fall outside the Atlantic slavetrade. I find that worrisome. Please educate yourself on the subject of slavery, in all of her layers. And not only the Atlantic one. So you know the true scale of this madness and how it still happens today.
Thanks for showing the world my point and how much of a racist cunt you are though :-) Maybe next time you should learn how to stfu when a person of color talks about their struggles and oppression
