Should Americans pay slavery reparations?
Only if everyone else does.

DURWARD SAAR:

It was one Arab Jew who controlled, for a while, the sales for overseas shipment of slaves. He got the slaves from Muslims who got them from black tribal leaders or from blacks who would hunt down people to take for slavery.

Muslims controlled most of the slave trade. They also raided Europe for white slaves for centuries. There was even a healthy trade for specific types of slaves, such as blond 14 year old virgins with blue eyes. They ended up in harems. Male children were taken to be trained and then fill the military ranks of the Caliphate.

The ships bringing slaves from Africa were mostly by the British (until the Brits banned slavery), Americans, Portuguese, French and Spanish shipping fleets. Hardly owned, manned, and commanded by Jews.

There were even black slave owners in Africa and the pre-war civil war America. There were even white slaves in Europe back then.

Jews were never really ones to own slaves. Their history of being slaves made it distasteful. If my memory serves me right, there was only one Jew who owned two slaves in the US south. At that time most of the world, be it white, black, yellow or brown had slavery..

In several Muslim nations slavery is either tolerated or allowed, What does that have to do with Jews? But of course, in your small and insular mind its all about and because of Jews.

Oh yes, most Jews are white. Some are black, some are oriental, some are Indian, but mostly white, And its “accept” not “except”. Ignorant, ignorant, ignorant in so many ways…

Jewish Slave ships crewed by Jews, Jewish slave markets and Jewish slave owners…Why should white people except any blame for Slavery? It was never us that were slavers.
This is all documented if anyone cared to look.

Kamala Harris’s grandfather owned 89 registered slaves. He tried to keep slaves even after Jamaica banned slavery. When that failed he tried indentured Irish. This is all according to her father and the article he wrote in the Jamaica Chronicle, January 2019.

She keeps going on about reparations. When she puts up, then talk about reparations. Her family’s slaves’ names are on record,

How about the African tribal leaders who sold part of their tribe into slavery or hunted down other blacks for slavery? How about the Arab slavers? Why not go to the root of the slave industry and get them to pay restitution? Sounds good to me!

Slavery was common, world wide activity until the British decreed it illegal and began going after slavers. Now only in s few places is slavery either allowed or a blind eye to its existence. Maybe its time to move on.
