Claims blacks ignore African slavery



I've watched television news about Africa's slave trade and was surprised to hear slavery is still going on. I wonder why Rev. Jesse Jackson, Rev. Al Sharpton and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People haven't hopped a plane and gone over to straighten things out.

All I've heard the last 30 years was slavery, slavery, slavery. But when it happens in what they call their "homeland," blacks don't seem to care. Could that be because there is no profit to be made?

They continuously picket and protest in America about the way they are treated, but from what I see on television about Africa, American blacks should be thanking to the people who brought their ancestors to America. Thank God they are here instead of constantly complaining about the way life was before they were born.

If they really want to complain about slavery, go where the action is. Hop a plane, go to Africa and clean it up. After all, Rev. Jackson was ready to go to China to put in his two-cents worth.

The majority of peace workers helping out in poor black countries are white people. Why aren't blacks helping blacks? Again, there's no profit in it.

Revs. Jackson, Sharpton and the NAACP are raking in big money by stirring hate among people in this country. That's how they make their living.
