In Praise of Slavery: 8 Public Figures Who Said It Was Good for Black People


Pat Buchanan

This comes out of an essay, “A Brief for Whitey,” the conservative commentator wrote in 2008 about then-presidential candidate Barack Obama: “America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known.”

  1. Farntella Graham says:

    most of these comments are incredibily ignorant and arrogant but there are some comments I agree with, especially those related to better family structure and Black self sufficiency, pre- civil rights movement.

  2. Yall stupid would it be okay if white people were slaved and blacks were slave masters…..lets try that

  3. I totally, all together, categorically, know that white racist people cannot speak about what is best for Afurakan people. They sound like a bunch of dumb racist a…. who feel what ever we went through were good for us, I say this all the time. Mind you now these pigs know exactly what happened to us, we were the way we were because of who were were, it had nothing to do with a vicious slave system, holding people to work for free, slavery was nothing less than horrible suffering of a people, we were degraded our moral character, our dignity were debased and dishonored. Black men were beaten, called boy, lynched in front of their children and wife. You tell me this was a good thing? You were born on the plantation and never left stayed there all your life. So in other words these criminals are telling us it was a good thing to commit crimes against us, because we were better people? They have to be out of their minds, slavery is a crime, it is an international crime, a crime against humanity. Just what does this say about these criminals saying slavery was good for us, crimes committed against us were a blessing. Blacks today have never escaped the horrible mental effects of it, along with the continued crimes committed against us, discrimination, we never got anything after being held for hundreds of years. They all got land, and all kinds of help to get started on stolen land, even the slave holders were paid for the black people they had to let go free. Everything that is wrong with black people today is because of slavery, and continuing to live under white supremacy/racism, and being discriminated against by white criminals who made these statement, and especially the lawmaker like Michelle Barkman who was or still is a lawmaker making laws to send more and more black men to prison, this miserable criminal had the nerve to say these things to black people. I will send her an email as soon as I finish this post I never knew most of these people had said this, I knew about the black reverend, just looking at him we can see he have some mental issues. I will send each one of them a copy of this post.

  4. They are telling us during slavery, we were better off. First black were not allowed to marry until around 1860, (year may not be correct), and then it is not what I call a wedding it was something called Jumping the broom. the vows were not the same as the whites vows, and they had to get permission to marry. One part of the vows that will get you, is the part in the whites vows that said, "Until due us part", in the black vows it said Until distance due us part," because many were sold off to other owners, and they would have a long distance marriage, then you have cases where they husband or wife would be sold to an owner out of state, when this happened they never would see each other ever again, that of course included the man's children, because the children always went with the mother. So these hearthless people are telling us we were better off living like this? Folks this is not the tip of the iceburg what these heartless, insensitive criminals did to our relatives. Yes brothers and sister, ladies and gentlemen, these were our relatives they are talking about.

  5. Buchanan is right…but…he also "forgot" to mention how his people also intro'd us to raping our women…diseases…lying…stealing…violence for the sake of violence…incest…& eating foods totally unhealthy for the human body! so "THANKS Mr. White Man…for TOTALLY RUINING US AS A PEOPLES"!

  6. The so-called bible that as also had it’s name changed ( etc…) and had a letter changed to J which is not in the hebrew alphabet and wasn’t in the English alphabet til around the 15th century now in the hands of the christians is part of the problem (kjv1611, no J in there?) The so-called bible is full of prophecies to the point that they have taken the apocrypha out! which exposes people in power at the council of nicaea. There’s a reason why they have this book? You have to understand history and the history of the so-called bible to understand the bible. There’s a reason why they do this and that's because they don’t what the true children/descendents of israel that have a convenient with the creator to re-connect. peace out 🙂

  7. Black people ( semitic!)( deuteronomy 28, kjv 1611) , not african black people ( hamitic)? are from Israel, We are hebrew/israelites descendants of israel, which the land was named after him ( Israel). its in our blood, they are trying so hard for us not to re-connect. Because of king solomon the kingdom of israel spilt into north and south. The northern tribes dispersed 1st over a period of time and the last 3 tribes which are Judah, Benjamin and Levi dispersed around 70ad under the Roman rule of Vespasian and Titus. Because we are black the safest place to go is into mainland Africa. During portuguese/spainish inqusition when we was in spain and portugal they tried to convert us and those that didn't had to leave or be killed. those that left were taken to west africa etc. then when the transatlantic slave trade started with the help of African’s selling us to the Europeans we’ve ended up where we are! we are the most high chosen.

  8. from babylon to timbuktu! you need to read it. with out black civilization they would not be a white one! that's a fact! you need to research and stop listening to the media.

  9. Who gives a damn what these cotton mouth white supremacists and Uncle Toms have said. They have a right to say what they want, even if it is delusional, misrepresented, and blind. True freedom is what we should all be focused on.
    Join us in the movement at to petition President Obama and Congress to remove the exception from the 13th Amendment. It's about human rights, human dignity, social equality, and equal opportunity. it's about real constitutional freedom. It's about taking slavery out of the constitution. It's about justice. Sign up and get involved,

    Two, loons. That's what these azzes, believe. I know, the Buchanan is a rabid, racist, but Michelle Bachmann is a stupid, dangerous loon. A pox, on all their houses.

  11. Nyansapo Dickson says:

    Nope. Real Jews so to speak are black african. Semite is a classification/tribe not a different race. Smh @ you self-hating negroes.

  12. I wish I could bilt a time machine and send jesse lee peterson there to prove his position!

  13. Nyansapo Dickson • Zondervan Pictorial Bible Dictionary pg 330… (Ham) the youngest son of Noah, born probably about 96 years before the Flood; and one of the eight persons to live through the Flood. He became the progenitor of the dark races; NOT THE NEGROES, but the Egyptians, Ethiopians, Libyans, Canaanites, etc.

  14. Nyansapo Dickson

    Note: African, Colored, Negro, Black, Afro-American, African American…
    The terms used to refer to Black Americans. Also Afro and Negro is a term used to refer to those that came from the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade and are not of Hamitic bloodline.

    Understand not all people that are dark and brown skinned are from the line of Ham. Noah had 3 sons Shem, Japheth, and Ham. Jacob / Israel = The first Israelite, and the progenitor of the Black Hebrews. Jacob is from the line of Shem. The line of Shem is of a dark skinned people and look like Ham in appearance.

    The African's come from Ham.
    Zondervan Bible Dictionary:
    1.The youngest son of Noah born probably about 96 years before the Flood; and one of eight persons to live through the Flood. He became the progenitor of the dark races; not the Negroes, but the Egyptians, Ethiopians, Libyans and Canaanites.

    Noticed the phrase,"not the Negroes". The question is then who are the Negroes if they are not from Ham? The Negroes are from the line of Noah's son Shem. They are the 12 sons of Jacob known as Israel. They are the true Hebrew Israelites of the Torah/bible.

  15. Brian Hamilton says:

    You ignorant Farntella Graham. Wasn't nothing ignorant that no one said in these comments but your ignorant ass comment

  16. Nyansapo Dickson says:

    Nope, to your additional commentary. I'll be back a bit later to debunk this

  17. Racist, free loader.

  18. Nzingha Shabaka My queen!!!

  19. Robert P. Robertson You got it.

  20. Dean Goulding Not only that, if they had stayed in Europe, they would have starved to death. Africa is supporting France right now, and the rest of Europe, they are all over Africa, still scheming, and bullying African countries while they take their raw material.

  21. True I have been to parts of Africaand saw the institutions and NGO's working as agents to undermine.The liberty and fair distribution of wealth from natural resources by using puppet dictators and corporations alliances.To take the raw material at a very cheap price and put nothing back into the lives of the masses.

  22. Ameen Forgive America when institutionalized racism is still on going and we have the mental make up from the effects of the institution present in the genetics from the worst system of chattel slavery worldwide… However the European holoucaust is talked about as more of a crime they got reparations, apologies.We are still faced with systematic racism and the effects of white supermacy.We can discuss forgiveness after reparations is paid in money in a trust fund to the descendants of ex-slaves, educational benefits and small business start up programs along with land allotments in the states that sanctioned slavery as legal in this country at any time.Along with mental health and family counseling services are made available.
