If you're going to use Queen Victoria for a gag you should have added an aside to identify how much the English government spent in the 1830s to buy and free the slaves throughout the Empire.

I don't get why people try to us slavery against the US when it had been going on all over the world throughout the majority of history with victims from every race, just cuz we participated in the way of the world at the time, instead of giving us credit for ending it.
Godslayer 5658
Godslayer 5658 Prije 12 sati
Tragic Mike But we didn’t end it? It’s still being used today, sure not by us, but by many other countries. Also the fact that US broke up, fought a civil war over it, and one side fought till the very end to keep says a lot. Plus we kept it much longer than most countries, The U.K, France, Russia, Spain, Portugal along with many others had abolished it long before the US did, and guess what, they didn’t have to fight a war because many in the country still believed in Slavery.

Funny how you have always tried to justify this war on slavery when it was all an economic issue on customs duties imposed by the recent industrialized northern states that could not accept southern states buying cheaper products abroad for their big exploiting lands. Never was slavery an issue up north nor south until 1863, when north seeing they wouldnt win war so easily had to inject a little moral to their big army.. When you lie and forget your history you are condemned to repeat it.. and guess what the big issue in the US is nowadays....

what you follow is the lost cause myth. also as stated in the confederate constitution " the federal governments imposement on slavery is a breach of our freedom". this myth was created by the kkk members who were trying to recreate the confederacy
