The Forgotten History Of White Slaves In America! Emmanuel August 21, 2017 Liberal Agenda, Race Relations White slaves also existed, but you’ll never hear liberals talking about that because it contradicts their mock outrage. Currently, America is experiencing a never-ending rant from mainstream media outlets and outraged liberals because they believe white Supremacy is taking over the country. In reality just as there were black slaves there were also white slaves. If African Americans believe they are owed reparations just as the Native Americans are, then why wouldn’t the families of Irish slaves also deserve the same reparations. Why are liberals always defending every single race except for white people when history proves that there is no superior race and we have all suffered great injustice at the hands of others. White slaves were just as relevant as black slaves during the start of the country. Via Political Mayhem: Hate groups like Black Lives Matter assert that all white people are inherently racist and that because of slavery, white people in America should feel responsible and be made to pay reparations to blacks. This way of thinking is completely back to how we progress as a society and does not take into consideration that when the Irish came to the United States, they were heavily discriminated against, Dating all the way back to the 1600’s, the Irish were subjected to slavery. White slavery. Before the Irish became slaves, many of them were killed in wars or sent to work on plantations by Oliver Cromwell. From 1641 to 1652, 300,000 Irish people were sold into slavery. These slaves were sent to places like Virginia, New England, and the surrounding colonies. It was not until 1834 that the Irish were saved from slavery when the British government outlawed the practice in the colonies. Still, the Irish though free were subjected to racism. Leading all the way into the 1900’s, signs that read “Irish Need Not Apply” were commonplace. Discrimination against the Irish persisted during the 20th century despite the fact that many Irish immigrants fought against the British in the War of Independence between 1775-1783. Dean James, from America’s Freedom Fighters wrote an interesting piece on the history of the Irish Slave trade. “The Irish slave trade began when James VI sold 30,000 Irish prisoners as slaves to the New World. His Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners to be sent overseas and sold to English settlers in the West Indies. By the mid-1600’s, the Irish were the main slaves sold to Antigua and Montserrat. At that time, 70% of the total population of Montserrat were Irish slaves. Ireland quickly became the biggest source of human livestock for English merchants. The majority of the early slaves to the New World were actually white.” Irish slaves were also treated much more harshly than their African counterparts, and African slaves were also more expensive to purchase. Slavery, regardless of who is subjected to it is an abhorrent and cruel practice. However, liberal agitators today seem to not know their history when they demand reparations and how ridiculous it sounds.
