Slaves were better off in slavery

Actual topic of an oral presentation by some fucking halfwit in my history class. No joke. Went on to claim that they had a better life in America since a lot of them were slaves in Africa anyway.

The professor said "I hope you have a lot of primary sources that help you argue that position. Can you name some?"

"Yeah. The Bible." *facepalm*

Most uncomfortable speech I've ever had to sit through.

Yes.  Africans sold slaves to America.

Yes, but slavery in Africa was mainly more like indentured servitude. Nothing like slavery in the U.S. But then they started kidnapping Africans for the international slave trade. We learned all about it. This id must not have heard a fkn word!
