Caucasians like to pretend that slavery was so very long ago in the great New World, that nobody except trouble makers should think that reparations are due. It is documented in this text and elsewhere the cruelties inherent in the slave trade and the subsequent slave breeding programs, But elsewhere it is clear how much the slaves provided in the form of labor to the capitol that forms today the basis of the econonomies in the West Indies and the United States. Who today profits from the economies of these countries? Certainly not the descendants of the original African slaves.
This little text is important as source material supporting the decision of the West Indian countries to file for reparations.
The text is published in 1828. What if the Nazis did all their work in 1828? Would we feel, oh that was so long ago that all the artwork, worth millions today. should belong to the German Republic, to the private collectors, the museums, and not be restored to the descendants of the Holocsot victim's?
