In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries more than 300,000 white people were shipped to America as slaves, urchins were swept up from London’s streets to labor in the tobacco fields where life expectancy was no more than two years.

Hopeful migrants were duped into signing as indentured servants, unaware they would become personal property who could be bought, sold, and even gambled away. Transported convicts were paraded for sale like livestock. White Cargo.

That doesn't back up the point the white people were "altruistic" in fact quite the opposite. Are you unable to respond directly to the point being made?

Hello? Please respond to my earlier posts. You're dragging the pyramid of debate down significantly with your unrelated sources and inability to respond in a reasonable way to discussion, so we might be forced to remove you because you're not acting in good faith, nor are you seeking the truth, it seems.

This is your last chance to redeem yourself... Respond to the questions I've brought forward, and don't copy-paste more scripts. If you cannot address the points being made, that's it.
