The Truth About Slavery

from the American Dissident Voices
The history of America and of Western Civilization is not being taught as it should
be in our schools and universities today. Historical facts are suppressed, and what is taught
is distorted in such a way as to advance the world government agenda, with all
inconvenient historical facts, knowledge of which might cause our young people to
question that agenda, purposely left out.
It is a tragedy of monumental proportions that our schools have been converted into
"liberal" brainwashing institutions, though I do feel a sense of encouragement when I read
that more and more real Americans are taking their children out of the public schools and
teaching them at home. As regular listeners to this program know, the global elite that push
multiculturalism push it because it undermines our national and racial sense of identity, and
not out of any love or concern for ethnic minorities. In fact, it should be obvious to
everyone that multiculturalism and globalism threaten the racial and cultural integrity of all
peoples, not just White Americans. Nevertheless, because America is, or was until recently,
a predominantly White nation, one of the primary ways that national disintegration is
promoted by the destroyers of nations in this country is by the inculcation of White guilt for
Black slavery.
By recounting and emphasizing again and again the real and imagined sufferings of
Black people under slavery, the White student is made to feel that his ancestors were cruel,
morally retarded, and evil. They are made to feel that they owe Black people a nearly
infinite compensation, since, they are taught, Black people's problems today are the legacy
of hundreds of years of slavery for which White people are responsible. They are taught
that the relative prosperity which we enjoy today was achieved largely by exploitation of
Black slaves. Is it any wonder that thousands of our young people join Jesse Jackson in
chanting "Hey Hey Ho Ho, Western Culture's Gotta Go"? Is it any wonder that they all too
often reject our European cultural heritage and embrace all forms of alien styles of music,
dancing, dress, grooming and slang, from Jamaican "rasta" to "gangsta rap"? Is it any
wonder that White teenagers are committing suicide in higher numbers every year? They
have received, in our public schools and colleges, not a "liberal education," but an
education by liberals. They have been taught very well indeed -taught that they and their
ancestors and their traditions and their natural feelings are worthless and an obstacle to be
Now these liberal lies are easily countered by facts. The primary fact that must be
emphasized is that many hundreds of thousands of White people were slaves in early
America. In fact, White slavery was not only extremely common, but until the late 18th
century it was far more common than Black slavery here. Also little known is the fact that
living and labor conditions for Black slaves, bad as they often were, were usually far better
than those for White slaves.
At this point, many of you are probably saying "White slaves? What in the world is
he talking about? Sure, there were White indentured servants and apprentices in colonial
America, and maybe sometimes they were treated badly, but actual White slavery - that's
something that disappeared with the Romans and the Vikings. And to compare White
indentured servants to Black slaves is the worst sort of racist distortion of history!"
Some of you are probably saying or thinking exactly that, and quite frankly to most
of us the idea of White slavery in early America is hard to accept, schooled as we are by the
