Joe Serrano by everything you have written it us plain to see that you have never really delved into these issues. Ou are parroting the same things you hear. If you read even 10% of the available research, essays, etc that is done by recognized experts then you would maybe start to see how one dimension your view is. There is no nuance in your thinking or understanding. You have chosen a narrative that suits your feelings and allows you to be lazy in examining the issues. That's all well and fine until you start making harmful comments in public. Be proud of your heritage not your white skin colour. White as a race has constantly involved since it's eugenics creation. Less than a hundred years ago most white people weren't even considered white by the racist ruling classes.
Anyway I tire of you now. Be a better person.
biaten, I'm hoping that me too and you aren't crazy, hopefully you're just brainwashed, I do urge you to conserve your energies, both of you and read the REAL HISTORY, Whites are a minority on this blue planet, why are they made out to be the BOOGEY MAN? It makes no sense whatsoever, unless...there is an agenda....Every Human, White, Black, Yellow and Red has the right to exist on this beautiful blue planet, its not like Whites want to reconquer their past territories, lamentably might makes right, White Countries do have the RIGHT TO EXIST as well as the Black, Yellow and Red Countries, we are a RAINBOW PLANET, learn to discern the REAL TRUTH, not the one espoused by the msm.
biaten I don't argue with them to change their minds because you're right, they will double down. They already know their beliefs are unacceptable to society at large.
I do it so that they know that their views are opposed and in case someone who could be influenced (like kids) is reading too.
I have German family who were against nazism and Hitler but did not speak up out of fear and remorse stayed with them. I also had a grandad who killed nazi's, without remorse. This motivates me.
From peasant to household servant in 3 generations & her kids would be free with a place as warriors at the table with the future Earl that they will be best friends with... Slavery really worked out well for that bloodline.
Turns out it was good Christianity replaced Viking savage paganism, killing the parents of children and then enslaving them at young age, was a shame for the pagans, glad they all converted to become Christians.
"...it was Christianity that officially ended slavery all over the world."
Nonsense! ....The British accomplished this - only after the Enlightenment revived the ancient Stoic idea of the universal Brotherhood of Man, and this evolved into the natural rights theory which undergird the revolutions of the end of the 18th century. ....Only THEN, after 1800 years of Christianity, did the good Christians mount a serious abolition movement.
The Anglo-Saxon slaves being sold in the streets of Rome around 600 A.D. didn't bother Pope Gregory the Great when he admired their beauty and resolved to send missionaries to Britain to convert them.
Plantation owners never discouraged preachers from coming onto the plantation to preach to the slaves. But, was a slave ever freed because he converted to Christianity? ...No.
What did Charlemagne do to help convert the Saxons to Christianity? ....He invited them over to parley with them, and then betrayed their trust in his hospitality and slaughtered thousands of them?
Christians never had trouble murdering non-believers and enslaving their women and children.
+Christine Cameron Most historians agree that even though the Crusades, while some successful, some not so successful, helped stem the tide of Muslim aggression. It was a response to more than four centuries of conquests in which Muslims had already captured two-thirds of the old Christian world. At some point, Christianity as a faith and a culture had to defend itself or be subsumed by Islam. The Crusades were that defense. So, please, learn the geopolitical side of history.
R. Anne So explain why women indulge in horrors like abortion, infanticide and murder. And why men fight to stop slavery , often at the costs of their lives while women sit idly by criticizing. And funny how women enjoy the bloody spoils of war whilst men died for it. So if men are awful , women are awful, and enable corrupt systems so long as they profit from it. And don't have to do the dirty work.
It would have been the farmer most likely. It was a different world back then. Children would have either been extra hands for the farm or extra mouths to feed. A means to an end. The whole concept of childhood really didn't exist back then as we know it today. Up to the industrial revolution people would not have thought much about it. You should see a documentary called The Children Who Built Victorian Britain. Very interesting.
why he hell do we human beings place any value on socially constructed abstractions like labels, rank or status, tribe, race, "slave" or "free"? They are all just accidents, and in our hearts, we always know it
The WhiteWOlf not really... slaves are lazy & far less productive than free men. It's why communism always fails & capitalism always succeeds... Franklin & Jefferson were both "Anti-Slavery" because of this very point, had nothing to do with nobility merely that they wanted to send the blacks back to Africa and the Welsh down in Georgia back to Wales.
By accidents some people be born as rich persons, kings, queens. by accidents, some people be born as poor slaves. That is fate, we can not change fate that giving by heaven, but we can try hard to change our Luck, some had succeeded. in some real stories slaves can be generals, even kings (That only in east Asia)
Pillage and plundering have long been associated with the Vikings, however, the Vikings were also skilled slave traders.
The Vikings would enslave the local population of settlements they raided and demanded slave tributes from Finnish and Slavic communities. These slaves would than be sold to the Constantinople via the Russian water ways. The Viking slaves would also be purchased by intermediaries, such as the Volga Bulgars and the Khazars at vibrant markets alongside the Volga river.
That's 100% pure garbage.
1) There were never any Slavic communities that were enslaved by Vikings.
2) There were never any Vikings anywhere near the Volga river.
3) Vikings never in history had any contact with either Volga Bulgars or Khazars.
raksh9: Finland or Finns back then were to far away for slave traders to reach. Germanic Christians mainly attacked Lithuanians they were 100% non-Christians, then sold them to Turks. Most Slavs were unhappy about that, so Poles helped Lithuanians and destroyed Germanic invaders. also sold them as slaves. If you were a Turk, it also possible that you have German bloodline.
Those Liars! We Russians our ancestors were not heartless savages who sold their own kids to Turkish animals. I know Vikings were not such kind of people too. Let me tell you who sold white people as salves to dirty Muslims, the shameless criminal Christians! especially Germanic Christians who started wars against Pagan whites and sold their daughters and son to Turks. Christianity back then was a savage desert culture no better than today's Islam terrorists.

As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
