why is it that when white people invaded North America and killed millions of Native Americans they were called “settlers” but when Black and Brown people cross the border they’re called “illegals”?
why is it that when white people kidnapped sold and enslaved millions Black people it was called a “trade”, but when Black and Brown people steal products it’s called “robbery”?
Actually it wasn’t a trade. Africans sold members of their own and other conquered tribes to America, making it a sale. There was also a huge problem with African people kidnapping merchant sailors and enslaving them. That’s beside the point but a little extra history never hurts.
Ummm that’s actually not true. They gave away rival tribe members NOT KNOWING it was for slavery for trade for items. When they found out what was happening they were told to stay away from the white faces and were told to never go out alone. And then whites started to KIDNAP them and the slave trade became a huge thing. That’s some extra history too. And they kidnapped merchant sailors in small amounts. It wasn’t a slave trade. Doesn’t amount.
