The Israelite Being Black theories are not entirely bogus but what they are is complete RACIST propaganda
JESUS was not Black or White he spoke ARAMAIC and was from the middle East his most likely skin coloring was Middle Eastern/Mediterranean
You must have missed that whole 1861–1865 soiree. Or would you like a refresher? Beginnings of Slavery in what would become the U.S.:
During this time frame the colonies broke away and institutional Slavery eventually became unpalatable in the North. It remained a prime source of labor in the South since no viable alternative was readily available. British Mandate did not apply since we were no longer part of Britain. This all came to a head in 1861–1865.
Simple. It's in your demeanor. You wish to elicit a lengthy debate on a subject when you are either being disingenuous about your basic knowledge, or you are a total idiot. Now, I don't think of you as an idiot, so I have to assume you are being disingenuous.
No one is curling. That is one sport that I find absolutely boring.
I have specified what particular style of story that are there for you to look for. I'm not going into specifics simple because I will not be painted into a corner by someone who seems, from the attitude that is displayed, to be spoiling to drop a race baiting hammer.
Apparently, humor also eludes you.
I did not "lump in all of the black people in one group". I was talking about the lazy ones in America. You know, the ones that have as many children as possible and let welfare take care of everything. The teenagers (and younger) that whine around about having to go to school, do not apply themselves, then drop out and go sell drugs to more black kids. You're a fool if you do not think these people exist. I see them everyday in the town I live in

Once again you guys get it all wrong. Race has nothing to do with this. It's about class. A rich black man carries as much weight as a rich white man. A poor black man is as powerless as a poor white man. The only difference is the rich guys are on the same page while the poor men are encouraged to hate one another. Having worked in corporate America I can state this as fact: Being a white male sure didn't close any doors in my face.
Indeed slavery was gradually suppressed in Europe from the fourth century AD to the High Middle Ages, when it was virtually unknown in northern Europe.
The institution of hereditary slavery reaches back to as far as the Xia and Shang dynasty (20th - 11th century BCE). Xia and Shang China was based on a social system which resembled that of a slaveholder society (as opposed to feudal society that would soon follow). Though nations did not actually develop into slave societies, the concept of slavery soon spread to neighboring countries such as Korea, India, and other parts of Asia. There is no mention of the term "slave" (nu Ò¿) in oracle texts written during this time. Similar to other ancient civilizations, Shang China introduced slavery to the economy by allowing debtors to repay their debts with women and children. However, the system was different from that of ancient Rome and the Western medieval world in that most slaves were owned by the state instead of belonging to individuals.
Zhou society showed aspects of both slaveholder and feudal society - the kings provided their followers with feudal land, and yet a large part of the population was enslaved, either as war captives or enslaved debtors sold on market. The war prisoners were called "li ()", or "nu ()", and the latter were called "chenqie ()". All three names include characters with multiple meanings, such as "servitude", "punishment", and "dependent on the master". Powerful feudal lords exploited slaves in order to raise production surpluses and gain more wealth. Slaves were traded in markets in bazaars of large towns, where various other commodities such as silk and cattle were bought and sold.
In 1906 China formally abolished slavery. The law became effective on January 31, 1910, when all adult slaves were converted into hired laborers and the young were freed upon reaching age 25

It existed everywhere, but it was probably the worse in the Middle Eastern Muslim nations.

It is everywhere.
Do some research.
As the expression goes, more places than I can shake a stick at.
Malcom X figured it out, the last thing blacks should follow is Islam.
That is why they killed him.

I am a white female and the only one I've ever seen getting discreminated against is me.
I am not prejudice.
I did just loose a black friend because she freaked on me and pulled the race card on me.
Why can't whites pull the race card on blacks?
Why can't people just say what they think!?
