What If The Slave Trade To The Modern Day USA Never Existed


Written by John (the other John).

I was recently thinking, what if the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade to the modern day USA never existed (while having existed in the other nations that had African slaves). Below are some possible scenarios if this historical fact had actually occurred:
  • Remained in Africa:
    • Become enslaved by another African tribe, or
    • Killed in tribal warfare (hence, no progeny today), or
    • Sold into Arabic slavery (hence, no progeny today because the Arabs killed off the slaves when they had no more use for them; then the slave need was quickly replenished because of the endless supply of African slaves), or
    • Survived all of the above events, so their progeny today would be paying human traffickers to smuggle them into Europe or the US (while envying fellow Africans who have US citizenship from birth), or
    • Survived all of the above events, and led a great life in Africa.
  • Caribbean slaves (thus a high probability that they are living in poverty and illiteracy, in which they would possibly pay human traffickers to smuggle them into US; while envying fellow Africans who have US citizenship from birth), or
  • Spanish-American slaves (thus a high probability that they are living in poverty and illiteracy, in which they would possibly pay human traffickers to smuggle them into US; while envying fellow Africans who have US citizenship from birth), or
  • Portuguese-America/Brazil (thus a high probability that they are living in poverty and illiteracy, in which they would possibly pay human traffickers to smuggle them into US; while envying fellow Africans who have US citizenship from birth).

The point being here, it is indisputable that those who were enslaved suffered horribly, but their progeny today who have automatic citizenship in Europe or the USA are the envy of all African people globally, because they live in the greatest nations in the history of the world. This citizenship is the greatest of all Black Privilege in the history of planet earth. So when you factor the alternatives, this automatic citizenship is the greatest of all “reparations” that anyone can ask for; the alternative of course being them living elsewhere in poverty and thus them possibly trying to sneak into the US for all of its rights and benefits (which they now have as a matter of birthright).
