Some food for thought, starting with a quote from the page that shared the article on FB:
“All the Native American tribes enslaved, murdered, and generally oppressed their enemies before Columbus set sail, continuing even into the 19th century. And African tribes were the biggest slave owners in history, and without these tribes, such as the Dahomey of Benin, selling slaves to Yankee and European slavers, black slavery would not have existed in the new world. I am waiting for these past sins to be addressed, any Native American or African monuments out there? History is complicated, and all races have sinned.”
History is messy. It always has been and it always will be. The key is that it has to be judged within the timeframe it existed, and not through the presentism of applying our standards to a time period that was simply a whole lot different. Our history, warts and all, are what brought us to where we are now. Ignoring it, or pretending it never happened never leads to good things.
