Injustice And Re-Writing History, Part II

(aka Reparations to Ireland?)

from Brock Townsend:

In Memory Of The Irish Victims Of Slavery

  ******************************

Did you know that more Irish slaves were sold in the 17th century than black slaves? With a staggering death rate between 37% to 50%, this is the story the history books will not tell you. 

White and Black Slaves in the Sugar Plantations of Barbados. None of the Irish victims ever made it back to their homeland to describe their ordeal. These are the lost slaves; the ones that time and biased history books conveniently forgot.

The first slaves imported into the American colonies were 100 White children. They arrived during Easter, 1619, four months before the arrival of a the first shipment of Black slaves.Mainstream histories refer to these laborers as indentured servants, not slaves, because many agreed to work for a set period of time in exchange for land and rights.

Yet in reality, indenture was enslavement, since slavery applies to any person who is bought and sold, chained and abused, whether for a decade or a lifetime.

More on revisionist history.
Believe me, I am not condoning or excusing Black slavery by mentioning there were White slaves, as well.  Slavery is wrong.  Period.  But we should know all history, not just that fitting an agenda.
Camps for Germans and Italians during WWII, as well?  Yep.  Certainly not as many, but…
It wasn’t just the Japanese.

  1. We have forgotten so much of our own history. It’s sad, really. And now we live in an era where it’s considered cool to be stupid.

  2. Well, they didn’t agree to be indentured – James just decided there were too many Irish so he startrd clearing them out and shipping them to the colonies. And the first Africans arrived the same way. The first slave owner in Virginia was an Angolan sold as an indentured servant by the tribe that captured him. After he was freed, he decided at one point to not release one of his own indentured servants. It went to court and the court upheld his decision.
