Real History of Slavery in 2 Minutes

We’ve produced a series of videos, each no more than two minutes, recounting the real history of slavery. These are based on audio extracts from Thomas Sowell’s essay ‘The Real History of Slavery‘, to which we’ve added images and historic photos.

For more information on slavery, as it really happened rather than the politicised antiwhite version pushed by our institutions and the media, listen to Thomas Sowell’s essay which is posted in full at the end of this page and visit our slavery article.

Only one civilisation developed a moral revulsion against slavery

The most striking omission from today’s slavery narrative is that it was White people who, against the wishes of every other race, ended slavery virtually across the world.

At the time Western societies had the power to prevail against other nations. That is why slavery ended.

People were enslaved because of vulnerability not race

Slavery was not motivated by race or racial difference. It was the result of vulnerability and societies seeing enslavement as an integral part of their culture. Until White society developed a moral revulsion to the practice and, against the wishes of all other races, ended it.

How the distorted narrative of slavery is used to demonise Whites?

This video provides an example of how the White-centric view of slavery is used to demand retribution for ‘inherited’ guilt and to create current guilt by transferring the perverted narrative of the past into the present.
