History shows that warriors taking slaves has been going on since humans invented time. Even today many Muslims own slaves.

Proof that Hillary didn’t pick him to be her VP because he has any sort of functioning intellect. She did it for much the same reason 0bama picked Biden: To make sure that their VP would never be any sort of threat to themselves... some call it 'impeachment insurance'.

I'm not a history scholar but I'm sure slavery has been around for a long, long time. I'm tired of this crap. Sick and tired of this. Don't want to see any more police or fire personnel assassinated because of this insane violence.

Ignorance can be remedied. Stupidity goes to the bone. By such a remark, Kaine manifests both failures. I’ve thought that the nation dodged a major disaster when Clinton was rejected, ignoring Kaine. Now, I’m doubly grateful for our escape.

Always and forever the uneducated clueless buffoon that he is. From data published a few years ago on where slavery exists in the world today: 58 percent of people in slavery are living in just five countries: India, China, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Uzbekistan. The report estimates that North Korea has the world's highest prevalence of slavery at 4.4 percent of its population, followed by Uzbekistan (4.0 percent) and Cambodia (1.6 percent).“ So hey Tim please get some scholarship time in on the subject of slavery and get back to us before you make yourself look even more stupider than you already look.

Kaine, are you an idiot or merely a poor student of history? The United States inherited slavery from the British by way of Portuguese slave traders and African tribes that sold captured enemy slaves to them. The slavery of Black Africans in England's American colonies started in 1619. There was no United States until 162 years later when British colonials put an end to our subjugation to the English crown and became American. 82 years later Americans violently renounced our British inheritance of slavery. If Kaine was a Virginian instead of a Minnesotan, he would have learned that lesson in Virginia schools.

The plantations in the U.S., the Caribbean, and Brazil were largely owned by absentee landowners in Great Britain and Europe. The plantations were regarded as natural resource providers, cotton, sugar, tobacco. The cotton was exported from the U.S. to the textile factories of Great Britain, and Europe. Labor was insufficient and was imported from Africa, as Great Britain and others provided manufactured goods to Africa in return for labor that was exported to Brazil, the Caribbean, and the U.S. Great Britain had primogeniture where the entire estate went to the eldest son. Second and later sons often obtained land grants in Brazil, the Caribbean, and the U.S. and made their living off plantations established there. That is some history for Senator Kaine, who is badly in need of any education he can get. The Book of Proverbs was written centuries ago to describe the futility, and how no thanks should ever be expected from fools, so I expect no thanks from Senator Kaine.

#17 provides good info on the origins and time period of the slave trade Recently read the following estimates -- beginning in the early 1600's, African slaves were taken from West Central Africa; the trade was banned in 1807, but smuggling went on until the conclusion of the American Civil War in 1865. The total number of Africans forcibly seized and transported to the Americas over that period of time was approximately 10 million, and broke down approximately 40% taken to Brazil, 40% to the Caribbean, 5% to what became the United States, and 15% to Spanish American.

Thousands of maskless protesters running rampant through the streets? No problem. A political rally for President Trump? Out of the question! That’s the take of Joy Behar, a co-host of ABC’s “The View,” who claims Trump’s Tulsa, Oklahoma, rally on Saturday is a far greater danger to public health than the Black Lives Matter protests occurring across the U.S. “He only cares that you come and supply kudos to his massive ego,” Behar said Tuesday before demanding Trump supporters stay home. “He won’t even give you health insurance if you get sick.

How sweet to be a Democrat. They seem to think it's game to engage in despicable acts and dare anyone to hold them accountable. No matter how bold and in your face the act, no matter how crazy the statement or preposterous the proposal (think Green New Deal), they know they will not be seriously questioned or held to account, let alone disciplined. This doesn't stop them from screaming bloody murder when Republicans engage in the exact same behavior, nor from demanding that the harshest punishments be meted out. In fact, this, too, is part of the game, and it gives them great — and perverse — pleasure.

"The first African Americans sent into the English colonies came to Point Comfort, Virginia, in 1619. They were slaves. They had been captured against their will. But they landed in colonies that didn't have slavery. There were no laws about slavery in the colonies at that time. The United States didn't inherit slavery from anybody. We created it," Kaine said.

We are making an important change today in our writing style. When referring to a culture, ethnicity or group of people from the African diaspora we will use “Black,” with an uppercase B. We are making this change to NJ Advance Media’s style guide to acknowledge and respect the word represents a people with shared cultures and experiences, and not a color. Black, we believe, should be used like other identifiers, such as “Asian,” “Latino” or “African American.” We also will continue to use “African American” in stories when warranted, as “African American” and “Black” aren’t always interchangeable.
