This is just focusing on them because they are here and ... handy IMO because non of these people have the power to go back in history ... and change anything.
 
Cheap shot. Confused
 
Do you know how many BLACK people owned slaves? A lot .. and they were just as brutal as the Whites.
This was free labor afterall so if you can't force people to work ... you will go out of business.
 
That was what the economy was based on.
 
In today's terms if Computer companyt A does not have to pay their employees to write code ... they will corner the market because Microsoft has to pay salaries .. so who will get run out of business?

Was the article faulting them? Confused

So do you have an explanation for why these mere businessmen were raping slaves?

Yes, there were white slaves. Yes, in this country. Hundreds of thousands of them, mostly Irish. And they were cheap too. Sold for abouth a 10th of the price of an African slave.

Don't shoot the messenger.

I know for a fact my family owned slaves. 
I have deep family roots, documents have been passed down and my aunt showed me slave purchase ledgers. So I can relate to this shame as can many other Blacks.



Errrrrrr....not necessarily.  IN case you didn't know, there was some people in parts of Africa that own slaves or participated in the slave trade that sold slaves not only to white people but to Arabs and other Africans.


Some?? It was a way of life

Tippu Tip ?
Aro and Abam Slavers on the Atlantic Coast?
Kind of sad cause their was a vast network that Europeans tapped into. Wasnt chattel Slavery by any means... Wasn't a walk in the park either.



Well I didn't want to overgeneralize and wanted to have some leeway in case I was wrong, hence the qualifier some.

They were indentured servants, which is a form of slavery in itself but not nearly as harsh as what the Africans endured. It happened right before the African slave trade really exploded. And there were plenty of irish slave owners, btw.
