The Human Experience "Stay Woke"

Would you all want to know what you know now or not know at all? "The Human Experience"
When people mention Africa sold slaves as well (a comment found):
So...The irony is that progressive action is being taken on slavery and human rights violations and you have a problem with it? An urgent debate is needed to right the wrongs of the past and current state of these issues. A huge part of coming up with solutions and communication is owning up to flaws and changing things for the better universally. This is the time to do that no matter who likes it or not. It's bigger than race, this is cosmic and karmic order happening before your very eyes. Its not that simple.
As Africa obviously faced it's karma over the centuries for the part it played so will the perpetrators on this soil of America for the part they played in the destruction of the indigenous people (who were enlsaved as well and didn't come from Africa), and inhumane acts of chattel slavery.

Slavery happened in Africa, with tribes becoming enslaved after losing battles, war. It wasn't based off of race, it was in war. Happened everywhere in the old world. They were prisoners of war. Most of the nation's of Africa wasn't part of this by the way. And no I'm not justifying it, this needs to be addressed as well and clarified.

the “ancient and widely accepted institution” of enslavement in Africa was exacerbated by the European presence. Yes, European slave traders entered “preexisting circuits of exchange” when they arrived in the 16th century. But European demand changed the shape of this market, strengthening enslavers and ensuring that more and more people would be carried away. European slave-ship captains wanted to deal with ruling groups and strong leaders, people who could command labor resources and deliver the goods. European money and technology further empowered those who were already dominant, encouraging them to enslave greater numbers. Both the social structures and infrastructure that enabled African systems of enslavement were strengthened by the transatlantic slave trade.

Don't feed into the “two wrongs make a right” ethical proposition. Even if Africans (or Arabs, or Jews) colluded in the slave trade, should white Americans be entitled to do whatever they pleased with the people who were unlucky enough to fall victim? They surely were treated worst as chattel slaves, not just for work, but evil pleasures, and all kinds of unfathomable acts that human beings shouldn't be able to do to each other. All of this needs urgent debate and address and we shouldn't act surprised that it does. It's obviously a very huge elephant in the room. Ivory and irony.

Soo as Africa gets together to clear karma, so should America and Europe to right the wrongs of history. Especially in context of racism, Africa did not perpetuate how America treats "black people" just because they are "black". Did I miss anything? When it comes to the root of our problems here on earth nobody's hands are clean. With the virus of the crown they are telling everyone "wash your hands
