Monument to slaves in Zanzibar:From colonial slavery to Black-Black slavery

Germans were held accountable for the holocaust but here the Africans were enslaved by the Arabs who were the chief handlers and the buyers were mainly the Portuguese and the Spanish and to lesser extent other Europeans.The West African Africans were captured by North and West African Arabs while the East African Africans were mainly sold by Arabs from the North and Saudi/Muscat/Oman area. How should we go after them and sue all these people? The Mau Mau case is a good example where they have been successful in suing the British Government.

Jews were compensated,will Africans ever be compensated???? Jews have the control of media and so they can constantly remind the world of the holocaust and demand subsequent compensation. How can we as Africans lay the strategy to dominate the media? How many newspapers in USA, UK, France, Sweden, e.t.c are owned by Africans or Blacks?

slaves were sent to America and were also sent to the British colonies in the West Indies and Spanish held colonies in Cuba and South America. There was a vast network of buyers and handlers both in East Africa , South Central Africa and West Africa. There were many many people responsible for the plight of the Africans. The questions I’m asking is who or better still, how do do you go about suing anyone? Is it worth suing anyone when there is now black-black slavery in our countries?

Jews were compensated around 1.5 billion dollars. This was a token amount to gain acknowledgement from Germany for Nazi atrocities. The idea was to shame them on the world stage. However they lost close to 6 billions in pilferaged properties and tangible assets they left behind. This was never accounted for by Germany as part of reparation.

The slaves were taken to America, the West Indies and South America by the slave traders because there was a huge demand for them. The sale of the slaves were advertised in various newspapers and were auctioned off to the highest bidders. Not all Americans were rich and not all could afford to own slaves but who do we sue in USA? Where do we start?. It wasn’t so much as greed but there was an acute shortage of labor to work the vast farms. The first slaves were ‘imported’ to work on the huge Virginian tobacco farms and as more and more colonies joined the Union, the need for man power increased and immoral trade of human trafficking increased. It was a profitable business for the handlers and there was no shortage of ship load of human cargo arriving everyday to be sold off.

Blacks that were taken as slaves are still treated in some countries as 2nd class citizens. Besides Americans, the Portuguese in Brazil where millions and millions of Black Brazilians live to this day in impoverished condition at the bottom of the social rung. They are like second class citizens in Brazil. In USA and Brazil there were laws passed by the govts to keep blacks in slavery and to deny them human rights.

You have to read the history of African-Americans in USA who FOR OVER 400 YEARS were subject to various laws to keep them oppressed such as BLACK CODE, JIM CROW LAWS. They were not allowed basic human rights such as meals on the counter with whites, barriers in hotel rooms, DISCRIMINATION on means of transportation last but not least no admission to white schools BY LAW.. For the first time in 1964 they were allowed to vote in the election, a law passed by President Johnson.Civil Right laws were passed in 1965 thus removing all forms of racial barriers.
So the govts were responsible for the slavery of blacks. If these laws were not passed then the history of Blacks would have been quite different from the one they suffered over 400 years.slaves2
