Many people are unaware of the pivotal role in the slave trade played by Muslim merchants that brought the slaves to the coast for sale, and are similarly unaware that slavery was still practised by several Islamic states well into the 20th century. White slaves were even captured by Muslim raiders from the coasts of Europe and Britain and taken back to the Middle East. Indeed, there was a defined process of ransom for recovering those who were well enough connected. Slavery is codified in the Islamic scriptrures, and is still practised even today in Sudan, under the authority of those texts.
1441: European slavery in Africa begins http://www.brycchancarey.com/slavery/chrono2.htm
1590: U.K. slavery begins?
1619: U.S. slavery begins http://www.history.com/topics/black-history/slavery
1776: U.S. founded
1833: UK abolishes slavery
1865: U.S. ends a bitter 4 year civil war to end slavery
So there was under 250 years of slavery by the UK and under 100 years by the "U.S."
Never mind that Islamic slavery and went on from 600AD till now.
Never mind that Islamic slavery took nearly as many slaves and castrated them.
Never mind that white Christians got slavery abolished, unlike Muslims that still do it now, and still have slavery, and even sex slaves, codified in the official texts of Sharia Law.
