Why Slavery Doesn’t Work

  1. Slaves don’t work as hard as employees that are motivated by money and success.
  2. Slaves fuck your equipment up in order to spite you for enslaving them.
  3. Slaves also cost a lot of money to purchase, police and keep in good health.

US Slavery vs Global Slavery

  • The Slave Trade in Central America and the Caribbean was far more brutal and deadly than the US Slave Trade ever was. The raw numbers of people bought and sold don’t even compare. Over 11 million to the Caribbean and SA, but maybe 600 to 700k to USA.
  • Well over 90 percent of enslaved Africans were imported into the Caribbean and South America. Only about 6 percent of African captives were sent directly to British North America.
  • In the Caribbean, Dutch Guiana, and Brazil, the slave death rate was so high and the birth rate so low that they could not sustain their population without importations from Africa.

Post Civil War – Liberia

Remember that time they freed us and gave us the option to leave and go to Liberia and most of us stayed because it was better here than in Africa? And those that did leave enslaved the locals? Good times.

  • Slavery of Africans by Africans
    • “Among the Tuareg of the southern Sahara, during the 19th century 70-90% of the population were probably slaves. In the Sahel and the savannah, half the population might be slaves, while in the forests the figure could be as low as 10 to 20 percent. Professor Oliver in “The African Experience” argues that the European and American demand for slaves may not have increased the supply. White slave traders almost never ventured into the interior and were dependent on a varying supply over which they had no control. They followed the flow of captives rather than create it, shifting their bases up and down the coast according to where tribal wars were producing the most slaves. Africa clung to slavery long after it was abolished elsewhere. Between the world wars, Liberia, founded by freed American slaves, was censured by the League of Nations for practising slavery.

Blacks Owned Slaves Too

Indians Also Enslaved People

  • America’s Other Original Sin (SLATE – Leftist article)
    Europeans didn’t just displace Native Americans—they enslaved them, and encouraged tribes to participate in the slave trade, on a scale historians are only beginning to fathom. Historian Tiya Miles provided this snapshot of the Native American ownership of Black slaves at the turn of the 19th century for Slate magazine in January 2016:Miles places the number of enslaved people held by Cherokees at around 600 at the start of the 19th century and around 1,500 at the time of westward removal in 1838-9. (Creeks, Choctaws, and Chickasaws, she said, held around 3,500 slaves, across the three nations, as the 19th century began.) “Slavery inched its way slowly into Cherokee life,” Miles told me. “When a white man moved into a Native location, usually to work as a trader or as an Indian agent, he would own [African] slaves.” If such a person also had a child with a Native woman, as was not uncommon, the half-European, half-Native child would inherit the enslaved people (and their children) under white law, as well as the right to use tribal lands under tribal law. This combination put such people in a position to expand their wealth, eventually operating large farms and plantations.


Blacks Also Fought For The South in the Civil War – Forced To?

  • How Many African American Fought For The Confederacy?
    • “Blacks who shouldered arms for the Confederacy numbered more than 3,000 but fewer than 10,000, he said, among the hundreds of thousands of whites who served. Black laborers for the cause numbered from 20,000 to 50,000.”
  • Sons of Confederate Veterans spokesman said many blacks fought for the South
    • “Documentation of blacks fighting for the South is scarce. There are anecdotes where blacks in Confederate regiments picked up muskets to fight or to defend themselves, but not enough to prove that it happened often, Blair and other historians said. Blacks were barred from the Confederate army until just before the end of the war.”
  • Black Confederates (a list of books on Amazon)
  • The #1 Cited Book: Black Confederates by Charles Barrow
    • “Barrow’s “Black Confederates” documents 61 blacks who received pensions from state and local governments in North Carolina, Mississippi and South Carolina. Nearly 300 applied for pensions in Tennessee, it says, but it’s unclear whether they received them. Records suggest they were noncombatants.”
  • Blacks Who Fought For the South
  • Black Confederates: Truth and Legend
    • “The modern myth of black Confederate soldiers is akin to a conspiracy theory—shoddy analysis has been presented, repeated, amplified, and twisted to such an extent that utterly baseless claims of as many as 80,000 black soldiers fighting for the Confederacy (which would roughly equal the size of Lee’s army at Gettysburg) have even made their way into classroom textbooks. It is right to study, discover, and share facts about the complex lives of 19th century black Americans. It is wrong to exaggerate, obfuscate, and ignore those facts in order to suit 21st century opinions.”

Only 5% of Southerners Owned Slaves

The US Government Offered To Relocate Any Black People That Wanted To Leave

At the height of American slavery, 78% of slave owners were ethnic Jews

  • At the height of American slavery, 78% of slave owners were ethnic Jews.
  • 40% of the Jewish population were slave owners, while only 0.35% of White Americans owned slaves.
