    1. The stupidity has to stop now. We are hounded about slavery today, 200 years after WE banned and enforced it. Yet long after that, WE had children as young as 6 years old working down the coal mines and in the Mills, 12 hours a day, 7 days a week, tell me about picking cotton in the fresh air, singing gospel songs. Tell me about being raped, pillaged and murdered for over 200 years by the Vikings, who, unlike the British Empire, did NOT bring technology, Industry, democracy, a world language and trade. Things happened hundreds of years ago, but the difference between us, is WE get on with it, the past happened, the past is gone.
      And as for the minute by minute taunts of our people and culture of racism…….LET THEY WITHOUT SIN CAST THE FIRST STONE. Slavery and child labour is endemic all over Africa today…….the word HYPOCRITE jumps to mind, like the vice chairperson of Black Lives Matter, who has taken this time to “stand down”…..to concentrate on a book and a tv programme about her, and I wonder if they will mention the four houses she has bought worth 3.3 million dollars she paid from the BLM donations they received worth 60 million dollars, with only a fraction today having been paid out to homeless and poor Black people…..like I said……..Hypocrite.
