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.
Pro-Choice Abortion Activists are hypocrites. They advocate the choice for women only. If they were truly pro-choice, that decision would be extended to the man as well.
If the Male is forced to fund the birth and life of a baby which a female chooses to bring into this world despite said male’s wish that she not do so, the female should be forced to obtain the male’s approval to kill the baby.
Fair is fair.
If it is a female’s choice to have the baby, the male should have the same choice. A male should be able to say; “No, I don’t want that baby. If you decide to bring this baby into the world, I want nothing to do with it. You raise it as your own and leave me out of it.”
There is no difference.
Why should a woman be beholden to the wishes of a man? Why should a man be beholden to the wishes of a woman? Each should be given the choice. If a woman becomes pregnant, the father should be able so refuse the baby. It would be a kind of legal if not biological/medical abortion.
If one is pro-choice but one is for forcing a man to pay for a child which he does not want, one is pro-convenience for women. A man should be forced into fatherhood no more or less than a woman should be forced into motherhood.
Pro-Choice is Pro-Choice. Anything less is simply hypocrisy. You are not Pro-Choice.
