Slavery was wrong. It was the original sin of the American colonies and one only has to imagine the heights America would have soared to had it not had to deal with the legacy of problems a foreign African population imported into a white nation inevitably caused. And every other group you mentioned have all argued for increased power by metaphorically connecting themselves to these enslaved blacks. Slavery has been a disaster for the white race, even though only a small fraction of whites ever practiced it.

If you think slavery is a sin then you deserve to be genocided.

Every single historical empire/civilizations took slaves.

Even many modern muslims/jews view non-muslim/jews as a little more than slaves, which is why they can't be genocided.

Everybody who still has the survival instinct gene would strive in order to make their family/friends/village/tribe/party/country/religion/race prevail against the "strangers." If you don't follow that creed then you're a dead end evolutionary branch who will perish through natural selection.

Egalitarian world view doesn't work when most people's world view are still tribal. It's like: you wanna treat that arab as equal and be kind to him, but all he wants is to kill you and impregnate your daughter. Why is that so? Because he is still in warfare mode and view you as enemy combatant who he needs to subjugate.

Stopping to subjugate others will eventually lead to you being subjugated. When straight people start ceding rights to lgbt, now lgbt are ahead and become preferred hire/enrollment in companies and school. When men start giving rights to women, now companies are actively firing men to make room for women. Equality is an illusion, feminism has always strive to put women above men. We can already see today that even divorce court is totally biased against men.

Slavery, the way we practiced it in America, is self-genocide.

You can't take a massive population of foreign people inside your own nation and not expect your own people to die. This is what we did in America. Or at least, what a small number of us -- about 1.5% -- did. American slaveowners got off on fantasies of wealth and power and imported this population of African slaves, slaves which were genetically incompatible with our way of life.

They didn't even have the decency to castrate these slaves, like the Ottomans did. If they had, the population might have dwindled away over time. Instead, they loved the idea that they could impregnate their female slaves and get new slaves, increasing their wealth. We only took in about 1200 slaves a year for the 341 years we imported African slaves in this country. That's 388,000 Africans, total.

But by 1860, the population of American slaves was nearly 4 million! 13% of our entire population!

And shortly thereafter, we went to war. It's a war we are still fighting today.

Can you imagine what this country would've looked like if no African had ever been brought to this nation in chains? It would be as paradisaical as Japan is for the Japanese. I have no fear of being invaded by Africans in Africa. Africans in Africa can barely keep their lights on. The only way for them to hurt us at all was to bring them here, and feed them, and clothe them, and allow them to raise families on our soil for generation after generation, which is exactly what we did.

I'm not making a moral argument here, saying the West was uniquely awful for holding slaves. We weren't. But African slavery has been a disaster for our people.
