The headline proclaimed "Texas couple" and the story told of a black woman from Nigeria "enslaved" by a couple in Texas—forced to work 20 hours a day, physically and verbally abused, threatened with being shot, never paid, and not allowed to leave
Texas couple charged with forcing nanny to work for no payYes, white people are so horrible—especially those Texas rednecks—racist, gun-loving and cruel. When will they be made to pay for all the evils they have unleashed on the world?

HOUSTON (AP) — A Houston-area couple forced a Nigerian woman to care for their five children and home without pay during a two-year period in which she was physically and verbally abused, made to work nearly 20 hours a day and told to sleep on the floor, federal authorities say.[ More]
Of course anyone who has been paying attention—for example, VDARE readers—knows enough to scan the article and discover, as expected, that the so-called "Texas couple" were in fact named Sandy Nsobundu and Chudy Nsobundu and are actually immigrants from Nigeria. (They're naturalized American citizens, and thus can't be deported. ) Blacks holding another black in slavery may surprise products of PC education propaganda, but the fact is even in this country blacks held black slaves before the Civil War—as did American Indians. And even after New Mexico became a US territory, Mexicans there continued to hold Indians in slavery as late as 1900.
No, white people did not start slavery—they ended it—or tried. Slavery continues around the world with an estimated 29 million slaves held. Mauritania in West Africa has the highest proportion while India, followed by China, has the largest number of slaves.

Victims of the education system are taught that western Civilization is the root of all evil and the resulting guilt is used by the left and its client interest groups to get their way. It is high time to disarm the left by spreading the truth that freedom, justice, and economic progress are the result of Western Civilization. Far from feeling guilty, whites need to be proud of the accomplishments of their culture. The only hope for the rest of the world is cultural appropriation—of Western culture.
