I appreciate that you're trying to research this, but the quote is troubling:
Whites were slaves for life, long before Blacks ever were.
This slavery was even hereditary
Free Black property owners strutted the streets
Before British slavers traveled to Africa's western coast to buy Black slaves from African chieftains
This is all language of denial, one-upping, and minimising. While much in the quote may be factual (and I'm certainly not vouching for all of it), the tone is racist. When I looked at the source, it is not a Toronto news source, but a blogger in Toronto who seems to be obsessed with immigration and minorities.
This was my concern with the topic and what I was warning MfM about -- it has and is used commonly among hate groups.
Maybe we can eventually make language a complete impediment to understanding. -Hobbes
