i completely agree Blayze.. about religion but you're forgetting it is also very much about money. sorry, but it's the capitalist explosion, in the Americas, and humans were a product to buy and use and sell. anyway, in the end, religion is always the ultimate bullshit that hurts us all, maybe someday we'll be free of it, but i doubt it.

The Bible most certainly does NOT allow for slavery. This was a case of evil men twisting the word of the bible to suit their own desires, as has been done throughout much of history unfortunately.

Relax Espanol. The Portuguese were maybe worse, and everyone knows the English & French & Dutch were just as bad. They were enslaving each other in the first place to the Europeans, they are still enslaving each other in places like Sudan. Ha, the bad boys!

The slave trade was largely justified by the religious people of the time, who believed the Bible allowed for slavery. Religion is most often the primary reason that society refused to become more civilized, and can even be seen today in backwards theocracies like Saudi Arabia.

This was commissioned by English abolitionists to illustrate slave transport on English ships. Nineteen years later, slave trade within English colonies was made illegal and twentysix years after that, slavery itself was made illegal. Literally decades of perseverance before they were able to free the slaves.

Remember: not only spaniards did bad things during colonialism... but, oh? what we can see in this image happened 290 years later. Please, forget the evil spaniards of pizarro, cortes, etc... and remember we are not the bad boys in modern age.

I just read a young adult novel about the slave trade with my 14-year-old. It's called "Slave Dancer," and I recommend it to anyone who wants to make it a little more real for their kids. I don't remember the author's name.

Thanks for posting this Estupidez. A sad reminder of our history, but also remembering that slavery still goes on today.
