I feel as if Ive asked for the reincarnation of Hitler or something along those lines.. when i clearly haven't
You can rant but where does it say in the rules i or we cannot rant our own opinion on the subject
to dissagree? as not everyone would agree with you that british were the only ones over there sir
and that is documented fact..
In the history of the Atlantic slave trade, the French turned four times as many Africans into slaves as the Americans did, they used them far
more brutally, and French slavers not only got a head-start on Americans, they continued the slave trade -- legally -- until 1830, long after the rest
of Europe had given it up. And they kept at it clandestinely until after the U.S. Civil War. France officially abolished slavery in its colonies only
14 years before Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation, and then only under pressure from slave uprisings. The French New World settlers outstripped the
Americans in their greed for slave labor. When the U.S. acquired Louisiana from France, the first governor sent out from Washington reported back
that, "No subject seems to be so interesting to the minds of the inhabitants of all parts of the country which I have visited as that of the
importation of brute negroes from Africa. This permission would go further with them, and better reconcile them to the government of the United
States, than any other privilege that could be extended to this country. ... White labourers, they say, cannot be had in this unhealthy climate."
Sir the british weren't the sole perpretators here check it out..^^
