obama`s faulty history lesson.

http://africanhistory.about.com/library/weekly/aa101101a.htm

obama is in ghana giving speeches at the slave buildings built by the british in the 17th century this week, giving us all the impression that his wife`s family were victims of the british.

while this is substantially true, what obama and an entire nation of people fail to address is that long before the european colonisation of africa, the muslims had been trading in slaves for centuries...and while this does nothing to exhonorate white slavers, to ignore this fact allows obama`s sharp point towards white america as the problem that blacks in america suffer today.

obama needs to tell the whole truth, so that whites and blacks...and those inbetween....can resolve the who-did-what-to-whom shit once and for all.

African's were trading and keeping slaves from rival tribes for thousands of years. Many Africans grew rich from trading their own people.

It's not like what you see in the movies where white slavers walked into africa and threw nets over a bunch of helpless blacks like they were a school of salmon.
