Cambridge to study how it profited from Atlantic slavery

University of Cambridge plans to investigate its links to the trans-Atlantic slave trade with a two-year study that will recommend ways to acknowledge and address the impact of its involvement. The study will look at financial support it may have received from those linked to slavery, as well as how the work of its scholars helped underpin attitudes to slavery.

All peoples have been involved in slavery, St Patrick was a slave. 15 million slaves from Africa went to south America, 15 million to Arabia and 400 000 to North America. Those who went to Arabia were castrated so no breeding there. The Arabs were the main slavers inland with the help of the dominant chiefs and the shipping was run by those who shall not be criticised.

I swear all this "wokeness" reminds me of how the church use to suppress science and falsely accused everyone of being witches. I cant wait for this era to end so we can move on to the future. I promise I will personally flogg myself or wear a damn scarlet "A" on my chest if we can please move on.

Why not celebrate the fact that Britain was the first to abolish slavery? I wonder if they'll 'touch' on the largest and longest-running slave trade in history - the Islamic slave trade, which dwarved the Atlantic slave trade.

No need to worry about Climate change killing us off in 12 years, this kind of BS will pretty much destroy the human race in less time.

A university of such stature should be investigating the Democrat party and it's fortunes earned knowingly on the back of slavery

I hope they come to the conclusion that the lives the ancestors of those slaves have, in the civilised world with clean water and easily accessible food and shelter is something they should be thankful for, slavery was the best thing that could have happened to them.
