The King of Dahomey receives European traders at his court to buy African slaves, 1793
KINGSTOWN – St Vincent – Heads of state of 15 Caribbean nations will gather in St Vincent today to unveil a plan demanding slavery reparations from Europe to be paid to the people that sold them into slavery in the first place — the African Kings and Princes.
“If it wasn’t for those guys selling us into the Atlantic slave trade, we wouldn’t have our own country right now. This is why we want those Africans who sold their own people, to get the slavery reparations,” the Jamaican foreign minister told an assembled group of reporters.
Slavery has existed for thousands of years and is not singularly the plight of Africans.
Throughout history, many races were slaves.
