Interesting. Shall we also talk about how the ancestors of most black Americans would have happily sold off their tribal enemies as slaves if they had been on the winning side of whatever conflict they ended up losing?

Shall we talk about how, without Europeans, the African and arab slave trades would likely still exist, and that principled opposition to slavery is mostly a white person thing, historically?
