All colors have been oppressed at one time or another in history
Why? Well, *sigh* because us whitey's felt that we knew best....

It is a good thing that is finally over with, isn't it?
Many reasons and none of them justifiable. I live in S.Africa and our recent history involved the oppression of Black people by Christians who claimed that they had the backing of their God.

It was just their turn, everyone goes through it.
why is every 12 question about someones colour?
Because they didn't have guns
Because they think they were the first slave and they wernt the Isrealites were
Maybe, depending on who you listen to. Current thought seems to be that the Egyptians didn't practice slavery when the Israelites were in Egypt.
