Heres something

Posted to Poetry and Politics

I hate people that react to stuff before they understand it, especially if they havent even read/seen it...
Like there are certain taboo issues that tend to get feverish responces before people listen to what is ACTUALLY been said. This I feel is a good preface for what follows:

I have always been of the perception that America, Britain, Spain went to Africa and enslaved its people...

It recently came to my attention that the West came to Africa and BOUGHT slaves, I mean Africans enslaved their own people, tribes in Africa owned slaves!

(Or at least this is what was suggested in that appalling dream works film produced by Spielberg)

I dunno... The whole thing sickens me but, even more know

What do you think?
