  • Michigan: African migrant couple charged with child slavery and child rape
    A 14-year-old girl traveled to the United States from her native Cameroon in 1996 to live with a couple in hopes of education and a better life, but prosecutors say the girl's trip to Michigan turned into a nightmare.
    There was no school and no opportunity, only years of involuntary servitude, occasional beatings and even sexual assault, they said.
    The couple accused of mistreating the girl, Joseph and Evelyn Djoumessi, were to go on trial in Oakland County Circuit Court on felony charges. Jury selection was set to begin Friday. Joseph Djoumessi, 44, is charged with kidnapping, conspiracy to kidnap, two counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, third-degree criminal sexual conduct and child abuse. His wife, 36, is charged with kidnapping and conspiracy to kidnap.

  • Senegal's Wade Says Slavery Reparations 'Absurd'
    DAKAR (Reuters) - Senegal's President Abdoulaye Wade on Saturday stepped into a diplomatic row ahead of a United Nations conference on racism, saying the idea of reparations for the African slave trade was absurd. He noted there were African peoples who had sold slaves. ``Should they also pay up?'' he asked. ``Some of us have forbears who may not have sold slaves, but had slaves in their armies. I am talking about my own ancestors, who had 10,000 soldiers at that time, of which two thirds were slaves.'' (reader link)

REPARATIONS: Resolutions on Slavery Reparations
Dorothy J. Tillman Resolution, introduced by Ald. Dorothy Tillman (3rd) (voted 17/05/00)
The lone vote against the measure was cast by Ald. Brian Doherty (41st), who said residents in his Northwest Side ward are mostly whites who did not participate in the slavery system and do not feel responsible for reparations. "It's not their responsibility and they don't feel it's their responsibility," Doherty said of his constituents after the vote. "How can you make a direct relationship to them if they weren't even here?

  • Joseph SobranThe Truth About Black Slavery And The Confederate Flag
    Slavery in Perspective - by Joseph Sobran ...I've been reading Hugh Thomas's impressive history, The Slave Trade (published by Touchstone/Simon & Schuster). It's one of those books that shift your whole perspective on the past...

    All this puts something of a damper on the assumption that slavery was a sin specific or "peculiar" to the American South. The slaves had been Africans who were sold to European merchants by other Africans who had enslaved them in the first place. Several of Africa's proudest empires were built on the sale of slaves. For centuries Africa's chief export was human beings. When Congresswoman Maxine Waters speaks of "my African ancestors' struggle for freedom," she doesn't know what she's talking about. Slavery was an African institution long before it spread to the South, and there was no abolition movement to trouble it. When Europe banned the slave trade, African economies reeled.

  • America's Original Sin - by Linda Chavez
    If it were possible to wipe out the legacy of slavery by writing a big, fat check, I'd be all for it. Who wouldn't be in favor of a simple solution to the problems that plague much of the African American community in America today -- especially since all of us are affected, not just blacks? Imagine, a one-time payment that would solve family breakdown, poverty and homicide among young, black males. But there are no easy solutions, and the payment of reparations to the descendants of slaves certainly isn't the answer. It's just more of the same liberal cure-all: Let government redistribute money from one group to try to solve the problems of another. (Teutonland link)

"Slavers"Africans undermine reparations claim
- by Jeff White - The National Post A ship suspected of carrying child slaves is hunted along Africa's old slave coast. A National Post correspondent discovers beaten children kept in servitude on Ivory Coast's cocoa plantations. Slavery in Africa in 2001? This incongruous turn of events clashes with carefully laid plans by African bureaucrats to extract trillions from the West in reparations for slavery. These demands, which will be raised at a $21-million United Nations conference on racism late this summer in Durban, South Africa, hang upon the proposition that "slavery constituted a white attack upon blacks". Africa's misery only ended, by this theory, when Britain and the United States abolished the slave trade in 1807. (Reader link)

Get your reparations (bottom of page)

"Reparations for slavery?" The more I think about it, the more I believe it might not be such a bad idea.

You see, back in the middle 1870s, my paternal grandfather (note: there's not even one "great" in front of that word) was brought to this country as an "indentured servant" to work in the lead mines of Colorado. He was called an indentured servant for two reasons: 1) at that time, slavery had only recently been abolished in the United States, and 2) his face was white. Nevertheless, he was sold into bondage.

Some members of the family say it was by his own hand. Others of us doubt that the signature of a 16-year-old boy would have been taken as legally binding and that it was done by a member or members of his own family. This was a practice that was still not all that uncommon back in those days, in Europe as well as Africa.

Be that as it may, you can bet your life that when the government starts handing our reparations for slavery, I'm going to be standing in the line with my hand out.
