Ted

Born Again Whitema,
I always enjoy reading your stuff and i hope the ink keeps flowing. That said, don't you think Africans should be the first to apologize to themselves for having sold their brothers and sisters, sons and daughters into slavery? It was a trade, which means it was business that invovled buyers and sellers. Why should only buyers have to apologize?

Ma Mary

Slave traders were the equivalent of marauding gangs of drug lords, creating a product for their partners overseas. Ordinary Africans have nothing to apologize. It was just a matter of time, if the Transatlantic Slave Trade continued before the ancestors of most continental Africans alive today, became victims.

What you are asking for is the equivalent of Africans apologizing for the rapacious, externally imposed, neocolonial Ahidjo-Biya regime.

BTW, you have the same obnoxious, backwards sensibility as the one who styles himself as UnitedStatesofAfrica. Are you his life partner?

espoir

the slave trade was a crime against humnity is condemnable before the laws of creation.any practice till this modern age similar to that should be crushed.
some of those ancentors sold their fellow brothers and sisters willingly.as a result of greed.but if history says the african cheifs where conned into allowing their brothers to be taken to a far away land,then why does history call it a trade.
i agree with Ted,we as africas must stop blaming the west for slavery and accept that we were part and parcel of the trade and move on.even up till this day africans are still involved in modern day slavery.may the supreme God forgive our fore-fathers for their mis-deeds and may the human race live according to the spirit of "ubuntu"which implies i am a human being because of other human beings.
