Slave Trade Quotes

Text Quotes
The Arabs are deep in the slave trade right now  (Slave Trade Quotes) Once we had a rail station in Montgomery that connected to Columbus and went all the way up to Virginia, slave traders could transport thousands of slaves at a fraction of the cost than they could transport by boat, and certainly by foot. And that’s how Montgomery became such an active slave-trading space  (Slave Trade Quotes) What should we suppose must naturally be the consequence of our carrying on a slave trade with Africa? With a country, vast in its extent, not utterly barbarous, but civilized in a very small degree? Does any one suppose a slave trade would help their civilization?  (Slave Trade Quotes) People-trafficking is modern day slavery. There are more slaves today than there were at the height of the slave trade  (Slave Trade Quotes) I believe the bicentenary offers us a chance not just to say how profoundly shameful the slave trade was - how we condemn its existence utterly and praise those who fought for its abolition - but also to express our deep sorrow that it could ever have happened and rejoice at the better times we live in today  (Slave Trade Quotes) The last four or five hundred years of European contact with Africa produced a body of literature that presented Africa in a very bad light and Africans in very lurid terms. The reason for this had to do with the need to justify the slave trade and slavery  (Slave Trade Quotes) We must show new energy in fighting back an old evil.

Let the consequences be what they would: I from this time determined that I would never rest until I had effected its abolition  (Slave Trade Quotes) And the men who loan money to governments, so called, for the purpose of enabling the latter to rob, enslave, and murder their people, are among the greatest villains that the world has ever seen. And they as much deserve to be hunted and killed (if they cannot otherwise be got rid of) as any slave traders, robbers, or pirates that ever lived  (Slave Trade Quotes) Cannot the love of Christ carry the missionary where the slave-trade carries the trader? I shall open up a path to the interior or perish  (Slave Trade Quotes) Decades from now, people will look back and wonder how societies could have acquiesced in a sex slave trade in the twenty-first century that is... bigger than the transatlantic slave trade was in the nineteenth. They will be perplexed that we shrugged as a lack of investment in maternal health caused half a million women to perish in childbirth each year  (Slave Trade Quotes) Here I am, a product of something really vicious, product of the Atlantic slave trade. And yet, I give nary a thought to some of the awful things happening right now in the world  (Slave Trade Quotes) The slave trade was globalism. Why people insist that globalism, after its hideous history, is a good thing, I do not know  (Slave Trade Quotes) Montgomery’s unique role in the domestic slave trade was that it was the first community that had a rail line that connected the Deep South to the mid-Atlantic region  (Slave Trade Quotes) From that date the abandonment of the older State proceeded with a rapidity never before known, and with it grew the domestic slave trade and the pro-slavery feeling  (Slave Trade Quotes) All the principal people in the town are concerned in the slave trade, and their chief wealth consists in the number of slaves they possess; therefore there is little chance of the trade being, for many years, totally abolished  (Slave Trade Quotes) The violinist must possess the poets gift of piercing the protective hide which grows on propagandists, stockbrokers and slave traders, to penetrate the deeper truth which lies within  (Slave Trade Quotes) In returning I read a very different book, published by an honest Quaker, on that execrable sum of all villanies, commonly called the slave trade  (Slave Trade Quotes)
