This is about history and slavery ?
If Jews had it the worst in being treated unfairly and killed during holocaust and slavery. Than why do black peoples still bring up slavery to this day ? They think they deserve reparations for it which is ridiculous. Is it only because they were enslaved the longest ?

The practice of slavery was universally accepted world wide for 10,000+ years. African's, Amerindians, Middle Easterners... committed massacre's to acquire slaves. Abolitionist Shakers, Anabaptist, & (R)s viewed it as something that shouldn't be practiced any longer, while the (D)s viewed it as an accepted practice sanctioned & allowed by god since Biblical Abraham. Both side felt they were in the right, but (R) abolitionist ideals won in the end as Slavery was abolished with Confederacy accepting swore their allegiance back to the US Constitution & the USA.
Serfdom, Caste, & Chattel were 3 types of slavery practiced. Serfdom was when the family or clan & their descendants within the land owned by a lord or lords are enslaved by whom ever owns the land or who it falls to. Chattel Slavery is what revisionist claim was exclusive in the Americas only. Chattel Slavery have been practiced in Ancient Rome, the Middle East & Africa before Columbus. In the 7th Century Islam turned the male Congoid Chattel Slaves into eunuchs. Just like in pre-Civil War USA, Slave owners in ancient Rome can free their slaves. In Islam the slave has to convert to Islam, but great exemplary sacrifice to the nation's society was required (militaristic conquest/defense). Trans-Atlantic & East Arabian Slave trade, Arabs, Arabize Congoids, & hunt/gather Congoid Kingdoms or Villages did the dirty work of massacring 1/2-2/3rds of the villages they raid or conquer to obtain the slave. Caste slavery is probably the worst form of slavery where a clan or entire tribe & their descendants are restricted to only one profession for the rest of their existence. In present day India intermarriages between couples in different caste can lead to Honour Killings carried out by their 1st of Kin.
The push to abolished slavery world wide would not have been expedient if the US Civil War hadn't Happen. England abolished slavery in the late 1700s (Serfs)- early 1800s (Congoid). Russia abolished slavery & emancipated Russian Serfs (Europid Slaves/Slavs as Eastern Europe didn't have African Slaves) in 1862. USA Abolished Slavery in 1864. Brazil abolished slavery in 1890s but continued it with the Xingu Amazonian Tribes through 1920s for rubber. The Russian waves of Immigrants in the late 1800s & early 1900s before the 1914 Russian Revolution were most likely former Russian Serfs/Slaves turned indentured servants. European slaves existed since 3K BC & there were European Slaves up to 1880s in Turkey when the Sultan abolished slavery for Europeans (mostly Crimean, Circassian, Ukrainian & Slavic States) & Congoid Slaves. When Russia turned Communist after the Russian Revolution: Royals, Nobles, Aristocrats, commoners, & former Serfs were subjugated into state bondage forcibly or voluntarily. Southern Europeans in Spain were enslaved for 800 years until the late 1400s when the Moors were expelled from Spain. European slaves gradually got their freedom before WWI, but could've persisted until 1964 when Saudi Arabia Abolished Slavery. Europeans growing strength from their technology & push to abolished slavery globally likely convinced Islamic states in N. Africa & Arabia to end caste/chattel slavery in 1964 with the exception of Mauritania where it continued until 2007, but slavery continues in N. Africa, Yemen, Sahel... as Al Jazeera reported just 5 years ago.
Before the Portuguese sailed around Africa & set up trading ports with costal Bush kingdoms, Africa was the 'worst' continent for Congoids & Capoids. Tribal warfare controlled population through sacrificial ceremonies that may involved having to consume sacrificial offerings, a practice that still exist. Joshua Blayhi (Gen. Butt Naked) being notorious for conducting these sacrificial ceremonies as its High Priest in Liberia (VICE: Cannibal Warlords). In Tanzania Albinos, mostly children, are killed for their body parts as charms, souvenirs, & even consumed in the same manner that Gorilla hands and feet are sold as charms or souvenirs, the rest being consumed in the beliefs of gaining some powers.
With the arrival of Arabs (1000CE-1100CE) in the interior of Sub Sahara then Europeans (1500CE), it became more profitable for Congoid bush kingdoms to sell rival bush kingdoms, tribes, criminals, & peasantry. After abolition of slavery swept Europe, N. Americas, then central & S. America 20-40 years later Congoid bush Kingdoms, later republics, still had a reliable slave trading partner with Arab & Arabize nations for another 100-140 years (Saudi Arabia (1964), UAE (64), Zanzibar (64), Mauritania 2007). The most famous slave market was in Egypt well into the 60s. Sunni Islamists ISIS, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, Libya... brought back open market slavery in their territory & Caliphate. Europids tried to develop Sub Sahara Africa. Now China tries to finish where Europeans left off.
Brief Analysis of Mankind's Journey.
In the Ice Age, Europeans & Siberians had to adapt in the frigid climate developing full body garments, sewing needles, cave paintings, other sorts of equipment & weapons to survive with the help of fire 60,000 years discovered Erectus 100,000 years ago. HomoErectus oldest fossils were found in the Caucus Mountains of Georgia, they thrive all the way down to Indonesia. The frigid North was not paradise compared to Sub Sahara was 10,000 years ago so humans had to keep innovating from the fertile crescent to the Pacific coast of China & Atlantic coast of Gaul.
Farming Developed in the Fertile Crescent 8,000 BC., Southern Europe & Mehgarh (Pakistan) by 7,000 BC, Asia (China) was Farming Rice & Planting in Rows by 6,800 BC, Ireland & Central Europe by 5,500 BC. Domestication of Horses in the Eurasian Steppes & the Development of Oxcart vehicles by 4,000 BC., Egypt & Thailand by 4,000 BC, India by 3,000 BC. The first great civilization to arise from these Farming Revolution was Sumeria/Mesopotamia. They developed the Chariot for warfare 2500 BC the Oldest Real Wheel-Axle Combination dates back in 3150 Eastern Europe. From Copper, Tin, & Bronze gave Sumeria an edge over nearby kingdoms, but also spreading the metal indirectly which allowed Greece & Persia to conquer the Middle East & Egypt.
In the Iron Age Rome & China Surpassed Mesopotamia & Egypt becoming a Greater Civilization than the Middle Eastern Civilizations. The Latin Empire of Rome entered the Dark Ages in the 5th Century A.D. that lasted for a thousand years due to challenges from the Germanic Tribes who over took & Fragmented the Roman Empire as Europe kept fighting with each other for Space/Territories & Control. China Became the sole Great, Stable, & Wealthiest Civilization in the World. With the Germanic Tribes Dominating Europe in the Dark Ages, Technological Progress did not ceased, but Continued. Armed with Iron, Alphabet & Drafting (drawing skills since the Ice Age) for Documentation & Blue Prints, European Elites/Master Craftsmen Built Castles made from Stones & Trebuchet to destroy or overwhelm Castle Wall Defenses. Prior to Stone Castles Europeans Beyond The Roman Empire's territory, Europeans built Log Castle & lived in log Cabins/Homes and farmed the land.
The Sahara Desert Isolated Sub Sahara from the influence of Ancient Mid East/Egypt, Ancient Europe, Ancient China, Ancient India...until Camels originating from Mongolia allowed Arabs to slowly penetrate the Sahel & East Sub Sahara in the 11th-12th century Arabizing some Sub Saharan's such as Malian tribes that grew into a Kingdom thanks to Arab Iron traded by Arabs, Arab Agriculture, & Arabic written language taught in Timbuktu to the Malian Elites. Sub Saharans Congoids continued living in Sticks & Mud Homes Arabize or Not.
China's Wealth & Influence were due to their technology in Porcelain, Silk, Gun Powder 400 AD/CE, Crossbow, Seed Drill, Industrial Cast Iron Plow, Cannon, Matchlock, Drill Mining, Rudder, Chain Pumps, Stirrups, Horse Harness, Compass, Moveable Type Printing, Pasta... that reached Europe through the Silk Road, the Middle East, & the Indian Ocean. Europe being in constant warfare had to keep innovating & with the Arrival of Chinese Iron Technology in Cannons, Match Lock, Crossbow, Iron Plow..., Europe Reversed Engineered Chinese Technology & kept improving upon them to Match China in their Global Status until Completely over taking China's Great Civilization in their Global Status (notably Britain).
Newcomen's External Combustion Steam Engine ushered Europe's (namely Britain spreading throughout Europe Australia & the Americas) Industrial Revolution. The Steam Engine Further Developed into Nikolaus Otto's, Rudolf Diesel's, & Karl Benz's Internal Combustion Engine further developed into Turbines, & Jet Engines by Frank Whittle & Hans Von Ohain establishing schools/discipline to maintain & improve the knowledge created by Citizens of European Society & Culture. Due to Industrialization, the masses had to be educated to supplement, maintain, & improve upon industrialization as hundreds to thousands of Innovations/Inventions were being churned by Europe's Industrial Revolution Faster than the Ancients could. Public Schools started to sprout in the early 1900s. Since Ancient times learning/tutoring have only been accessible to the elites, nobles, & apprentices. From the Dark Ages through the Colonial Age Private Schools, Church, & Homeschooling were much the norm. The University of Oxford was founded in 1096, Harvard in 1636, & Virginia Tech in 1872.Source(s): African Countries bares the responsibility for reparation in the form of a an independent sovereign territory the size of Puerto Rico or Hispaniola in Africa for Africans (Arab & Sub Saharan) stealing the territorial lands from those they sold to the middle East, N. Africa, India, Brazil, Caribbean, & the USA. If the Confederate states had won secession then the slaves victoriously rebelled, then the Confederate states would be obliged to give up power, territorial control, property & even women to ravage like in Haiti's revolution. The Global Abolition of Slavery Started with European descent from the Late 1700s to the late 1800s. In the US it was the Quakers along with the Anabaptist that started the abolition movement that was achieved in 1864. Brazil, Cuba, & Others followed in 1890s. The Union states having won the war against the rebel states abolished slavery.

Slavery lasted the longest in Africa. It still goes on quietly in Sudan, Nigeria, Azawad, Yemen, Libya, Somali, Mauritania, and more likely in Saudi Arabia.
3/4 of Spain were ruled over 800 years by Abbasid/Cordova Caliphate and slavery was as always is a big part of any Islamic Caliphate that is why ISIS, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram...brought it back openly.

The problem with reparations is to whom do you pay them and from whom should that money come. Slavery erased family ties to where it's impossible in most cases to know which living Americans are descended from slaves. In terms of the source of funding, most southern plantation wealth was destroyed by the Union Army, so there aren't rich descendants of those people walking around either. Clearly you can't just take it from the general tax base as almost no one who pays taxes now had any hand in slavery. You can't even say the federal government owes it because the federal government is the entity that fought the Confederacy and freed the slaves. All this is why this remains, and probably will remain, just a talking point.

Who told you Jews had it worst? Jews?
Well, we say we had it worst but you already decided that our cry for redress is "ridiculous". I notice that you ain't say that about the Jews though. Everyone else who has suffered an injustice is justified when they call for an apology and redress but when it's us it's ridiculous.
What do you hate us for? You don't like us but is it justified? The Jews ain't build up your country when it was nothing. They wasn't the first ones in uniform when the draft was called. WE was but you still treating us like sh*t.
