If one dares to point out that Africans were vastly complicit in the African slave trade, one is accused of trying to “deny” white guilt or to “absolve” whites of guilt, or of trying to argue that “two wrongs make a right.” No, dummies. Two wrongs make two wrongs. But the question is: Why do you focus only on one wrong? …
