The Big Thing on the Left now is the attack on Lin Manuel Miranda and his Hamilton play.
Hamilton is accused of being a slave owner, though, there is no evidence to support this.
Hamilton is then said to have been “complicit in the system” regardless of whether he owned slaves or not.
Well, I got some news for you folks.
Every Great African Power for the past ONE THOUSAND YEARS is complicit in the same system.
That includes Egypt, the Nubians, the Mali Empire and Mansa Musa.
White Europeans did not invade West Africa and enslave the people there. White Europeans docked their ships at trading posts in Africa and purchased previously enslaved Africans from more POWERFUL Africans.
If you are angry that your ancestors were enslaved, buy yourself an airplane ticket and head on over to Africa. If it weren’t for Africans selling Africans, the massive slave trade to BOTH the East and Islam and the West and the Americas would not have been remotely possible.
You want to talk about original sin.
The original sin belongs to the Africans who sold the ancestors of the millions upon millions of African whom they enslaved and sold for massive profit.
