Most of the blacks that where sold into slavery were originally sold by their own African Tribesmen in exchange for European goods. Many others were
already slaves, enslaved by neighboring warring tribes, and then traded for goods and shipped off to the Americas. This is something that our history
books deemed too sensitive to make the texts books (as a lot of history in books is a complete fallacy).
My advise to you would be that:
There are no racial cultures. There's no such thing as "Black" Culture or "White" Culture, or "Asian" Culture.
A white Irishman is nothing like a white Frenchman, a Black Nigerian is nothing like a Black Australian (the Term "Black" has become an accepted
racial term over "Aborigine"), an Asian Chinaman is nothing like an Asian Indian.
There are even different groups and cultures within countries. A North Irishman is nothing like a South Irishman, a Cherokee is nothing like an
Apache, etc, etc.
We all have skeletons in our ancestral history, no one is innocent, not whites, blacks, asians, native Americans, nor are Christians, Jews, Muslims,
Pagans, no one. The key is to discover your cultural heritage and to celebrate it accordingly, leaving the past where it belongs. With that, I bid
"Slán go fóill"
