    Good "radio lecture" on the history of slavery. Narrated by a black man and which destroys PC revisionist BS.

    There was one good thing that came out of western imperialism, specifically British, and that was the rooting out of
    slavery which existed round the world and was considered normal.

    The racism-slavery link is a pathology of US politics. Brazil was authoritarian and no faction had to propagandize
    why slavery was "justified".

    IMO Muslims slave trade receives far less attention than it deserves given that it was practices for both longer and on a larger scale than European one. Many Arab countries abolished slavery only in 1950s and 60s.

    Pay attention that the western countries which had slavery only had it in colonies not in metropoly (although Central and Eastern Europe had serfdom until 19th century which was in many aspects close to slavery)
