    stand point????. well from the stand point of the first people(native American Indian) at least the slaves and their masters did not get shot on site just for wearing buckskins and for their land that they had lived on for thousands of years and yes I'm a proud Cherokee/Seminole native and my father was a full blood and mother was a Cajun with Indian blood too i get so tired of all the slave talk ---ITS NOT HERE AND THE NOW ITS OVER SO DEAL WITH IT---sorry for the shouting but it just galls me that what our ancestors did to fellow people in the far past should carry the hate of then to now. all people of all colours invaded our country just for land and greed

    Slavery still exists today. Sometimes I think the whole reason white Americans get bashed for slavery all the time is because the bashers get away with it. We allow them to throw the guilt and blame at us and white America keeps apologizing. I almost think if white America said we apologized, we made amends now move on maybe the whole slavery/ victim mentality would disappear.

    me thinks this belongs in the inferno but that is the Mod's call.

    this is a deep rabbit hole and all I will say is. Apparently there is no culture 'native to the america's'

    This is more of an issue of victim mentality. Do the brits complain about the vikings? If they do I never see it.

    There are more slaves today than at any other time in the history of man. CNN, to their credit, did an outstanding series of articles on slavery a few years ago. IIRC, to going rate for a family of four was under 100 USD. I hate to be the bearer of bad news for chocolate lovers, but almost 50% of chocolate is grown and harvested by slaves.

    I always find it interesting that people who get wound up about slavery that was ended over 150 years ago in the US don't care about nor will lift a finger to help those currently enslaved. It's nothing more than an insincere way to get power, money, free stuff, and above all maintain the entitled victim status.

    EDIT: The Facts

    Besides the physical slavery, there are many types of slavery alive today. Watch a teen and their phone.

    The Native Americans walked over a land bridge to get to the US. All ownership rights stem from right of force, if you go back far enough. The thesis that we can turn that around affects every nation in the world. If we're saying that the first bloodline owns the land, then all humans can be related to a single mother from the fertile crescent; that is defended via dna trace and archeological finds. The only blood line that can date their family tree back to the fertile crescent utilizing archeological data and dna are the Jewish. Thus, Israel owns the whole world. The end.

    Actually, wouldn't that be Iraq?

    Of course, the oldest human remains found to-date were found in Ethiopia, so perhaps they own the whole world.

    They may own the World, but all your base belong to us.

    Wait a minute... if somebody else owns the World, shouldn't they be paying my property taxes?

    As an Indian (Little Shell) EVERY one here came from somewhere else, INCLUDING the "Native American" (what? I was born here, am I not a native American too?) and took the land from someone else. Read history, Manhattan was sold by Indians that didn't even own it! Such a deal! Every tribe was busy enslaving or killing every other tribe to get their land. The Apache kept whole tribes like Pueblos as slaves, so don't think anything is new. America did not invent slavery, it is alive and well in every country of the world and how do I get reparations? My great whatever grandfather was brought here as a slave too.

    No One should apologize for something they did not do or were not a part of.

    Obuma started the ball rolling because he has apologized for everything to everyone.

    Interestingly, one of the titles of Ethiopian royalty is "Lion of Judah". Arabic tribes never documented bloodlines, Israelis did. I just think it's a fun thing to say to a give it back to the natives liberal, tell them the Jewish really do own the entire world, watch their heads explode...

    I didn't own slaves nor was one myself. You weren't either.
    your parents didn't either.

    Meh, some should just get off their asses because that might be the mule they are looking for.

    Slavery was not the mean old white man. The coastal slave pens where filled by Black African kings and their warriors. If those African kings did not want the slavers; they would have sent their huge armies to destroy them. They wanted the money so they delivered slaves to the coast. Slaves were brought here by European ships.
    My ancestors moved here because they were kicked out of Europe.

    Enough whining and get a job. Do something with your life.

    Every person that has the give-me mentality is a slave to the government so you see we still have slavery today in America. The blacks are wanting us to pay for our past sins and yet they are slaves to the government themselves. Nobody is jumping up and down shouting about the government being a slave holder,are they? Until we get people back to working and making a living,it will stay the same. California today went to a $15.00 hr min wage,that should not be so,a min wage is a place to start and work up,I'm 73 and the first job I had payed $5.00 day,not an hour. But until we do away with the Socialist way,it will not change.

    You nailed it. It's just like "buy now, pay later (forever)". Big government providing you all your needs from cradle to grave is just a more sophisticated way of enslavement. You will/are paying the price for the "gimme's"and that will be allowing others to control you. When it gets to a certain point the "gimme's" will disappear and there is nothing you will be able to do about it.

    Interesting to not that the party who opposed freeing the slaves in the Civil War, that passed the Jim Crow laws, that re-segregated government employees in the early 1900's, that fought Civil Rights legislation in the 60's, is the same party pushing big government control and solutions as well as disarmament of the citizens.

    My first job was picking fruit in an orchard. Same as everyone here, I came a long way from the orchards because I invested the sweat equity and earned it.

    They are raising the minimum wage because their regulations, taxes and handing out favored nation's status to the wrong nations has destroyed our nation.

    15 bucks flipping burgers and will lose a lot of benefits. Poverty level in the US is about @22.5K a year; $15 an hour about $31K a year. The gov.com is dumping their failure on the private sector.

    As the Iron Lady, Margaret Thatcher so eloquently said: 'The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money.'

    Socialism is no different than communism; as it keeps on failing and its proponents keep promising it will work the next time.
