One thought on “Sen. Tom Cotton Calls Slavery Nation’s ‘Necessary Evil’ In Shocking Interview | HuffPost UK

  1. I would not say a ‘necessary evil, but would say ‘evil’, for slavery was completely unnecessary and was totally down to the Western countries of the UK, France, Spain, Portugal, etc in invading Africa and taking people against their will to work as slaves in the Caribbean and America.

    As Christian countries this should have been seen as not acceptable, but the greed the rulers of these countries and the traders was the prime consideration and many evil acts enacted upon these slaves, that is, if they survived the perilous journeys to their eventual enslavement.

    A very great wrong that has never been fully resolved to the slaves current relatives.

    Not only that, but these surviving relatives are still being persecuted by the many racists within these countries, especially America, where even the current rule of law and the President appears to be against them.

    So, even though no or very little action has been made to right the wrongs of many years ago, the wrongs are still be made.

    This is a disgrace to not only Christianity, but to every living being who appears to condone the previous and current behaviours.

    Those that do condone what is being done to the surviving relatives of slaves and others, are as guilty as the original purveyors of slavery and should not be part of Society. While racism is illegal so should be ‘White Supremacy’.
