For decades, the White people of America(NWN:And the UK for that matter) have been subjected to a continual barrage from Blacks and others that you and I are somehow "responsible" for the African slave trade and that we need to "atone" for our "guilt."
Their are a number of flaws with the idea that we are somehow "responsible" for the African slave trade.
First of all, very few White people even owned slaves-slavery was a rich man's pursuit and slavery did not exist amongst the middle and working classes of White people.
Second of all, even if every one of us had an ancestor who owned slaves (which is an extremely unlikely proposition), it makes little sense to blame the children for the supposed sins of their fathers.
Third of all, it is a fact that Blacks sold their own kind into slavery. As this is the case, Blacks are every bit as much to blame for slavery as are Whites.
Fourth, European Whites did not bring the slaves to America. On the contrary, it was the Asiatic Jews who brought them here (as Louis Fahrakkan has also pointed out). Below is a listing of the Jewish slave ships and the Jewish owners of them.

So, my fellow White American, there is nothing whatsoever to feel guilty about concerning slavery and it is time to quit apologizing for something others are responsible for.
Besides, approximately six hundred thousand White soldiers died in the American Civil War.
Have you ever heard of Blacks paying homage to or thanking these men?
