Everybody in the world was pro-slavery 400 years ago


It wasn't just Christianity. Including blacks who enslaved other blacks. Slavery was the norm. When the slave trade started, it was simply one society (white Europeans) being more technologically advanced and conquering another society (black Africans). It's been the story of human history since Day 1. Conquest (or attempts at conquest) have happened as recently as WWII. Slavery is still happening in some parts of the world.

This is what black loves matter (the movement and the organization) need to focus on. Police brutality is bad but fixing it will barely cause a ripple in helping black people.
