I find it funny how many people whine about comments with disabilities, but are too cowardly to watch the comment response video. If you’re really so inclined, just prove that you don’t deserve to comment on my channel. Bye.
There are many misunderstandings regarding the establishment of slavery, especially here in the United States. These myths often serve perishable political purposes, which can be extremely detrimental to an appropriate understanding of history. So here are 10 of these myths that have not been exposed in any particular order.
For general information and errors:
-I’m fed up with all the racism in the comments, so they are now disabled. If you have a comment, here is a comment response video. Check this out before you comment (because you’re probably just another racist and why): https://youtu.be/Rzs62Y0qJ0o
1 – An example of white slavery that I could have called were the Indian slave traders from Tans-Mississippi West who invaded Spanish-Mexican colonies and vice versa – but this is far too complicated for this myth.
2 – 3:20 – My bad, 1922 was the fall of the Ottoman Empire, 1918 was the end of the First World War
5 – 7:10 – “any power that is not expressed” (this is not difficult to hear)
7 – 8:30 – Typo, Marx was born in 1818, not 1918, LOL
