I think one of the most important pages in the book of human atrocities would be the decision to end "white" slavery but continue African slavery. But I have found little to no info on that specific chapter in history. I was just wondering if any of you knew the particulars of that subject?

Slavery persists of every skin color. In fact the biggest crime in Western Ohio is child traficking for the sex slave trade. What do you mean by the end of white slavery and the continuation of black slavery? There are slaves of every color in Saudi Arabia and elsewhere in the world held by Saudis and many other people whose culture is permitting of the trade.

Whites are not the sole perpetrators of slavery in recent history or even right now...today.

Not sure it ever did. Lots of sex slaves out there today who are white.

Communists were slaves. Like the Polish who had to grow all their food and give up there resources for the Soviet Union.

My wife watched Downtown abby and most of those people seemed like slaves.

But as far as the slave markets like the ones from Africa...there isnt really a definitive date unless you address a region. Just like black slavery hasnt ended in some parts of Africa. Slavery and racism supposedely anthropologically started in china and india. But its probably older and wide spread than that.

Slavery goes on today in the US sanctioned by the government.

Prison labor is big business. They make $3/hour and government and corporations auction them to the highest bidder.
I used to think the Nazis lost WW2.

What makes you think it did? We just call it the sex trade or human trafficking now to make ourselves feel better about things, but the ugly truth is that slavery of all colors and creeds still exists everywhere.

You do realize slavery still exists today, and it is ever prevalent in all age groups, cultures, and peoples. Human trafficking is still one of the largest businesses in the world. There was no "abolition of white slaves and a continuation of black slaves", there was just slavery from every corner of the world. It has pretty much always been here and will likely always exist in one way or another.

Slavery still exists throughout the world, and all races and skin colors are affected by it (yes, even white people); I'm talking about real, physical slavery here, where ownership is a reality, and not the hands-across-America for the poor prisoners forced to actually work, b.s., where if they'd made an attempt at being decent human beings, they wouldn't be in the predicament that they are.

Prison labor is NOT slavery. To even imply such, is doing a serious disservice to real slaves suffering throughout the world.

I think I know what you're talking about. Look into the Popes from the 1700s to the early 1800s. There were many different decrees they issued to differentiate between "just" slavery & "unjust" slavery.

EDIT: Here's a list of the Popes & the times they were power. This can get you started, though a google search of "Pope unjust slavery" may help you narrow it down.

To a much more malevolent and experienced group, who do not take kindly to competition.

Slavery is as old as man itself, I remember reading something about similar traits of forced work in primates
African slavery remains in our mind as its well documented, even to the point that an African queen was possibly well in on it
The Romans were renowned for slavery as were the Greeks, since 300 there seemed to be this belief in the Spartans being noble, righteous even. Where as if memory serves and I may be wrong on this, the Persian empire was against slavery, and actually was much more evolved with things like schooling and social care, and to throw this out there could be traced back through Babylon to messipotania and Sumer so.....
Hell aside from the examples already presented actual slavery is still carried out in some of the Arab nations.
Having slaves of African and Eastern heritage


I don't still get p***ed at Italians though for 100's of years of slavery and oppression

It's like ........what did the Romans ever do for us?

We all make the choice to allow ourselves (or not) to be owned by devices. They can be avoided almost all together if you truly wish to live that way.

People are enslaved today more than ever before. When corporations move overseas to take advantage of lower wages, what they are really doing is hiring people where they are so poor already they will literally work for next to nothing.

Apple pays Chinese to make their devices, you are probably wearing some clothing made in an India sweat shop and banana and sugar from south of the continental US.

In EU countries like Italy and Greece, or African countries like well all of them, and even in the US, the chains are the high cost of living and low wages. Just enough to survive paycheck to paycheck, thats slavery.

Its the modern form of Colonialism. Doesn't matter what skin color you have.

This. Slavery didn't end with the American Civil War. Not by a long shot.

It's just called something else now so we don't feel so bad about it.

You might like to look at this

The Irish slave trade began when James II sold 30,000 Irish prisoners as slaves to the New World. His Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners be sent overseas and sold to English settlers in the West Indies. By the mid 1600s, the Irish were the main slaves sold to Antigua and Montserrat. At that time, 70% of the total population of Montserrat were Irish slaves.

Ireland quickly became the biggest source of human livestock for English merchants. The majority of the early slaves to the New World were actually white.

From 1641 to 1652, over 500,000 Irish were killed by the English and another 300,000 were sold as slaves. Ireland’s population fell from about 1,500,000 to 600,000 in one single decade. Families were ripped apart as the British did not allow Irish dads to take their wives and children with them across the Atlantic. This led to a helpless population of homeless women and children. Britain’s solution was to auction them off as well.

Guess who was King of England in 1625? It was not James II. James I (aka James VI of Scotland) died in March of 1625 and his successor was his son, Charles I (d. 1649).

The source you're linking is among the most often cited among a certain group of people who seek to minimize the horror of chattel slavery of Africans with ill-informed statements such as "the Irish were slaves and they were treated worse!" typically followed by some nonsense like "and they got over it!"

In fact, White Cargo, the subject of this poorly executed book report and another book called To Hell or Barbados are the primary sources for purveyors of this sort of pseduohistorical would be apologist junk. Shouldn't be hard to find scholarly refutation if you google for it.

Slavery ended? We are all slaves to this societal construct of greed and vanity.

I ment institutional, lawful slavery. Slavery where if you ran away the "POLICE" would return you to your owner. The kind of slavery you can be born into. Corruption where it is illegal but TPTB turn a blind eye , doesn't count either.

The sex trade doesn't count because it's not sanctioned by governments.

Prison (tho I completely agree where your going) doesn't count either.


I know the humanities history of slavery. I just can't find when the change happened where you could keep all races as slaves to where you could only keep Africans as slaves.
