And what, ask them to fund reparations? I'm confused how this matters to the topic

Absolutely, Iran and Saudi Arabia, the source of islam . And if you are going to compensatae slaves, why are you discriminating against none US slaves?  Were the ones in the US just lucky ?

In their world , they did nothing wrong , as judged by thier peers.

Their peers were abolitionists. England abolished slavery prior to the US and pushed the US to do so. You need a new history book.

And lets establish another point. Moslems were slaving in africa FOUR HUNDRED YEARS before the white man got there.

And Christians were slaving before Muslims. WTF has that got to do with whether or not it is wrong?

Exactly, it's a pointless distraction. Internetcynic:  read the thread and keep your posts in context of the OP.

As an Englishman there is a good chance you have some Viking DNA. Perhaps you can solve the issue by paying yourself reparations.
