Amazing, even in the comments — “We didn’t enslave anyone…”

Even in these responses people can’t get with the idea that Africans were enslaved by the millions, used as resources, generating fantastic wealth because there was no regulation, no conscience, no humanity considered in their abuse.

Just stop. If you can’t handle the idea that slavery was monstrous and that the United States made a great deal of its wealth and prosperity on the backs of slavery, mayhem and murder, then you have chosen to pretend it didn’t happen and you are exactly the person Dave Winer is talking about.
