  • Indeed, another "What if" question. There is no "what if" about it, they were. Arab merchants took more than a million "white" slaves from the coast of Cornwall and forced them to work in North Africa for almost 300 years. (http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2004/mar/11/highereducation.books)
  • I want my reparations!
  • It would have been all the same... just with inverse roles. And you'll be wondering the same thing.
  • Serfs were slaves in the Middle Ages.
  • Then we'd probably be looking at the possibility of electing the FIRST White American for President this year.
  • Every race on this planet has had their go round with slavery and it still exist today.
  • You feel a need to tell us "I'm not a racist"???
  • Well, if Africa took the place of Europe in the Age of Exploration, and the Africans purchased European slaves....well, it sounds to me like it would just be a switch...
  • You admitted your fault. Ain't that just sweet.
  • Okay, I got spanked for this retort. I just think the information within a question often says more then the answer.
  • wouldn't happen... it's impossible, the color white.. whether it's on one's skin or on one's clothes, will always be glorified and upheld against the color black... if someone was to enslave whites back then, it wouldn't last for too long and it certainly wouldn't be any bigger a deal than minor human trafficking (not trying to undermine human trafficking but, you get the point)
  • then McDonald's would be called McDizzle's and its specialty dish would be the McJerk Chicken Sandwich.
  • Who really knows....I dont have a crystal ball to answer that for you....and to let you know that when you say you are not a racist, you probably are...;)
  • it would be just as tragic and unjust, no human being deserves enslavement.
  • Guess it would be the oppoite of what it is now...maybe there should only be iggnorant people inslaved!...OH BOY there would be many!
  • The Jihad Candidate - by Rich Carroll Conspiracy theories make for interesting novels when the storyline is not so absurd that it can grasp our attention. 'The Manchurian Candidate' and 'Seven Days in May' are examples of plausible chains of events that captures the reader's imagination at best-seller level. 'What if' has always been the solid grist of fiction. Get yourself something cool to drink, find a relaxing position, but before you continue, visualize the television photos of two jet airliners smashing into the Twin Towers in lower Manhattan and remind yourself this cowardly act of Muslim terror was planned for eight years. How long did it take Islam and their oil money to find a candidate for President of the United States ? As long as it took them to place a Senator from Illinois and Minnesota ? The same amount of time to create a large Muslim enclave in Detroit ? The time it took them to build over 2,000 mosques in America ? The same amount of time required to place radical wahabbist clerics in our military and prisons as 'chapla ins'? Find a candidate who can get away with lying about their father being a 'freedom fighter' when he was actually part of the most corrupt and violent government in Kenya 's history. Find a candidate with close ties to The Nation of Islam and the violent Muslim overthrow in Africa , a candidate who is educated among white infidel Americans but hides his bitterness and anger behind a superficial toothy smile. Find a candidate who changes his American name of Barry to the Muslim name of Barak Hussein Obama, and dares anyone to question his true ties under the banner of 'racism'. Nurture this candidate in an atmosphere of anti-white American teaching and surround him with Islamic teachers. Provide him with a bitter, racist, anti-white, anti-American wife, and supply him with Muslim middle east connections and Islamic monies. Allow him to be clever enough to get away with his anti-white rhetoric and proclaim he will give $834 billion taxpayer dollars to the Muslim controlled United Nations for use in Africa . Install your candidate in an atmosphere of deception because questioning him on any issue involving Africa or Islam would be seen as 'bigoted racism' two words too powerful to allow the citizenry to be informed of facts. Allow your candidate to employ several black racist Nation of Islam Louis Farrakhan followers as members of his Illinois Senatorial and campaign staffs. Where is the bloodhound American 'free press' who doggedly overturned every stone in the Watergate case? Where are our nation's reporters that have placed every Presidential candidate under the microscope of detailed scrutiny; the same press who pursue Bush's 'Skull and Bones' club or ran other candidates off with persistent detective and research work? Why haven't 'newsmen' pursued the 65 blatant lies told by this candidate during the Presidential primaries? Where are the stories about this candidate's cousin and the Muslim butchery in Africa ? Since when did our national press corps become weak, timid, and silent? Why haven't they regaled us with the long list of socialists and communists who have surrounded this 'out of nowhere' Democrat candidate or that his church re-printed the Hamas Manifesto in their bulletin, and that his 'close pastor friend and mentor' met with Middle East terrorist Moammar Gaddafi, (Guide of the First of September Great Revolution of the Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya) Why isn't the American press telling us this candidate is supported by every Muslim organization in the world? As an ultimate slap in the face, be blatant in the fact your candidate has ZERO interest in traditional American values and has the most liberal voting record in U.S. Senate history. Why has the American mainstream media clammed-up on any negative reporting on Barak Hussein Obama? Why will they print Hillary Rodham Clinton's name but never write his middle name? Is it not his name? Why, suddenly, is ANY information about this candidate not coming from mainstream media, but from the blogosphere by citizens seeking facts and the truth? Why isn't our media connecting the dots with Islam? Why do they focus on 'those bad American soldiers' while Islam slaughters non Muslims daily in 44 countries around the globe? Why does our media refer to Darfur as 'ethnic cleansing' instead of what it really is; Muslims killing non Muslims! There is enough strange, anti-American activity surrounding Barak Hussein Obama to pique the curiosity of any reporter. WHERE IS OUR INVESTIGATIVE MEDIA!? A formal plan for targeting America was devised three years after the Iranian revolution in 1982. The plan was summarized in a 1991 memorandum by Mohamed Akram, an operative of the global Muslim Brotherhood. 'The process of settlement' of Muslims in America , Akram explained, 'is a civilization jihad process.' This means that members of the Brotherhood must understand that their work in 'America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions.' There is terrorism we can see, smell and fear, but there is a new kind of terror invading The United States in the form of Sharia law and finance. Condoning it is civilization suicide. Middle East Muslims are coming to America in record numbers and building hate infidel mosques, buying our corporations, suing us for our traditions, but they and the whole subject of Islam is white noise leaving uninformed Americans about who and what is really peaceful. Where is our investigative press? Any criticism of Islam or their intentions, even though Islamic leaders state their intentions daily around the globe, brings-forth a volley of 'racist' from the left-wing De mocrat crowd. Lies and deception behind a master plan - the ingredients for 'The Manchurian Candidate' or the placement of an anti-American President in our nation's White House? Is it mere coincidence that an anti-capitalist run for President at the same time Islamic sharia finance and law is trying to make advancing strides into the United States ? Is it mere coincidence this same candidate wants to dis-arm our nuclear capability at a time when terrorist Muslim nations are expanding their nuclear weapons capability? Is it mere coincidence this candidate wants to reduce our military at a time of global jihad from Muslim nations? Change for America ? What change? To become another 'Nation of Islam'?

  • Whites have been slaves. Google white slavery, you'll find many cases of it. Some of it recent believe it or not.
  • They were. Until long after the American Revolution, there were more white slaves than black in the British colonies, and later in the American States. The Indians had held red slaves for thousands of years before the white man came to the Americas. During colonial times, Indians held white, red, and a few black slaves. The whites held mostly white slaves until after the cotton gin was invented. Many blacks in the colonies were free men who held both white and black slaves (maybe red slaves as well, but I couldn't find a reference on that). Most slaves in the world, and in America, today are either white or Asian. . Just to let you know that slavery is not racist.
  • Did Rome only enslave black people?Did Persia only enslave blacks?The words slave itself is a derivative of "Slavic"which were not black people.My husband's great-grandmother came to America as an indentured servant.That's slavery.She had no rights and lived her entire life as an indentured servant.She was as white as snow.
  • I think if it were that way, then Europe would've had to be run by blacks as well. So, I guess it would be the same thing as it is today except the skin color would be swapped. the "n" word be offense by the whites, but used in all there rap songs about da hood. Word up. ^_^
  • What makes you think that blacks were the only slaves in this worlds history? Whites have been as well as most other cultures.
  • The same. Throughout history, slavery has existed in many cultures. The Vikings were great slavers. They took indiscrimately from all sorts of places and sold them in the markets of Byzantium, Kiev and northern Europe. The Arab slave trade was much more extensive and long lasting than the Europeans. They took slaves from Spain, Greece Malta and Southern Italy until the 12th century (They still take from North Africa) The Ottoman Empire took slaves from Greece and the Balkans until the late 18th early 19th century. South and Central America had its own slave trade. There were even slaves among the Native North Americans So it has not been just Africans, but many nations.
  • Race is imaginary! Why does it matter what skin color you are? They were people, nothing else.
  • Like answer number 2 said it would be the Same. Sad:( but true...My best friend at work is a young beautiful black girl,and we talk about these issues all the time...and she has a baby girl and I hope she gets the chance in life she deserves... God Made all of us for a Purpose...So forget the Hate Life's to Short...So we all need to try and get it together!:)
  • What you mean if Willis?
  • Many white employees today are little more than slaves! When management demands more and more productivity and more production yet offers nothing more in benefits or wages then what else do you call it?
  • Just so everyone remembers, from the early 20th century onwards, "white slavery" has meant controlling girls (of any race or colour) by any means --- drugs, threats, physical abuse, or whatever --- in order to force them to work as prostitutes. So any pimp is legally termed a white slaver, even if all his girls are Fijians or black Africans. And in many countries even today, girls of all races are being sold to brothels or to slave dealers.
  • Watch the movie "White Mans Burden" starring John Travolta.
  • whites have been slaves as long as if not longer than blacks. blacks should not have a monopoly on slavery
  • No one can honestly tell you the outcome of such a dramatic change to history with any level of absolute certainty. So many political, economical and other situational factors would have had to be quite different for this to even occur. Depending on each of said (and unsaid) factors the resulting world of 2008 could have taken on various forms. Should it have been a complete role reversal and Africans have had the society that was prominent in European history as we know today, many of the statements like that of SABOTEUR would, while comical in nature, be a valid truth of things. However, should Africans have maintained their historical culture, it is possible to say that Europeans may have found the New World sooner, given their fear of passing through Muslim territory and (as a result of blacks enslaving whites) of circumnavigating Africa all to get to the 'East Indies' for trade. It remains, however, that the colonists would have found great trouble in cultivating the land in the 'West Indies' as Native Americans, knowing better the land than did any explorer, continuously escaped slavery and indentured servants' repaid their debts accordingly. It was this richness in resources that allowed America to achieve the status it has attained today, as a world leader (quite forcefully so and probably more self-defined as such). Without the proper labor force, America would be very much undone, potentially abandoned (returning the land to the Native Americans should the colonists decided they can no longer survive there); potentially an impoverished land (never reaching a point of existence for a separation of states to occur); The existence of slave labor in early America was also part and parcel to the economies of other nations who, should America have failed to produce any wealth of knowledge or goods, would have been directly affected with an inclination toward the negative. Ah, I suppose I risk continuing forever if I don't stop now. Hopefully this has shed some light on the initial question as it has been interpreted to me (it is extremely vague but I have focused it on the practice of slavery following the discovery of America as it pertains to Africans and European whites.)
  • Before Africans were used exclusively or on a wide-spread basis there were white equivalents. The difference is, they were indentured-servants, which meant that they could eventually buy their servitude contract and be free. until or when that contract was paid, there was no real difference betwen the two.
  • blacks, of course, were not the only slaves in history. turks took slaves from anywhere they could, many white (and other) allied servicemen were enslaved by the japanese during world war II, and today, there are more slaves than ever (according to human rights groups) and although many of them are black, many are not.
  • That question has no meaning whatsoever. It doesn't matter what color, a slave was a slave and the same issues would have happened. Your question has no answer. By asking it you are not racist just intellectually immature and undeveloped.
  • I find it quite amusing that in every instance of race discussion attempts, a person always ends it with "and I'm not racist" haha
  • The Romans had slaves, from anywhere. White, brown, yellow, black. It didn't matter. History is full of slavery and it doesn't just pertain to the recent flux of black slavery in America.
  • Most Roman slaves were white. They were captured from all over Europe and became slaves to Roman citizens. When most people hear the term "slave" they think of people from Africa being slaves to early Americans.
  • Every culture has had slaves, there have been planty of white slaves throughout history even in america. When plantation owners had slaves they didn't want to take a chance on them dying of malaria for example when they were digging the canals in New Orleans in those days, they used irish slaves and immigrants and they were treated worse than slaves were..they were expendible wheras a black slave was property that they had invested money in. There's hardly a culture on this planet that hasn't has a sordid past of slavery in some form or another...OF course now we are aLL slaves ...wage slaves.
  • Ok, what about it? What is exactly your point, do you have one? Because I certainly would like to hear it. And thanks for let us know you're not a racist. I'm going to reward you with 3 points for not being a racist. That's quite an accomplishment.
  • Color is irrelevant to me. Slavery is shit, whichever way i look at it.
  • If Whites were brought over as slaves things would be the same today with the exception that there would never be a black man as POTUS! They would probably have overthrown their captors and then became the dominate people! And they would have made certain the other faction had no opportunity of ever taking them prisoners once more!
  • REMEMBER HITLER?
  • We our slaves public housing, food, utilities etc. many on assistance have a higher standard of living than I do.
  • I worked for a total of 49 years of my life. Much of what I earned was confiscated by corrupt politicians (massas) to buy their power by redistributing what they confiscated to others, in exchange for thier support and votes...and by sticking even more in their own pockets, and those of their friends. What makes you think I wasn't a slave all those years...and still am? Those on the receiving end, those dependent on the "love" of the politicians are slaves, as well. We're all slaves to them. Black, white, yellow, green, whatever...we could all use a new Abraham Lincoln in our lives.
  • Whites were the first slaves
  • Whites have been enslaved. I can't think of any race of people that have never endured some form of slavery.
  • I wonder what colour many of the Eastern European women being abducted into the sex industry are?
  • Hell if it was like blacks were treated, they would've killed themselves. They are weak. No one could takea all da shit we did. I'm proud to be black!!
  • we would have invented the blues (now that would have been some good shit)
  • Just to let you know you are a little racist or this question would not have entered your mind. But do not worry as we all have a little racism in us. I am mixed marriage and both of us have a little racism. it is only normal. But what if never happened so there is no honest answer to a what if. Do I make any sense to you. I hope so and I am not trying to give a smart answer, just an honest one.
  • dark knight, that did happen. remember, the israelites were slaves to the egyptians? in this day and age, it's white ppl's turn to rule the world. in the beginning it was blacks, although it wasn't about race.
  • It would still be like Ecc 8:9 "...man has dominated man to his injury". Unfortunatly, men do not feel the way that God does. Acts 10:34,35 "...that God is not partial, but in every nation the man that fears him and works righteousness is acceptable to him". That is one more reason that jesus is the only one that has the legal right and is capable of governing mankind in an unbiased manner. Is 11:1-10 Jesus “...will not judge by any mere appearance to his eyes..." Ez 21:27 "..it will certainly become no [one’s] until he comes who has the legal right..."
  • Well guess what, neither am I. We'd have the exact same conditions we do now. Because it was never JUST blacks who were slaves. And there are those who call for a return to the days of slavery: http://www.danielpipes.org/blog/2003/11/saudi-religious-leader-calls-for-slaverys.html
  • Whites have been slaves. Every race has been enslaved by another at some point in history.
  • A lot of people we now consider white were slaves. The Irish, for example, were treated horribly in this country and no better off than black people. The term "indentured servant" is a type of slavery. Many whites are victims of human trafficking. Actually, the history of who gets to be white is fascinating. So is the history of slavery. There are, even in this day and age, slaves of every race.
  • So youre saying like white people being taken to Africa to be slaves? Obviously the world would be much different, but it wouldnt have made the idea of slavery any better or any worse. slavery is wrong no matter who is enslaved or who is the slave master.
  • Some area of africa would most likely be a world superpower. Without the slaves america would have failed.
  • I think you're not paying attention. We're all slaves. All but a very, very few.
  • In various parts of the world, whites have been and still are enslaved, just like all other races.
  • whites where slaves and were treated badly especially the irish so don't go thinking the blacks were the only ones that were treated bad. you fuckin idiot
