College Textbook Convinces Students That Christians Started Slavery

When they are done with the Confederate flag, they will come after the cross, because it isn’t only the South they want to erase. There will be no place in utopia for Christianity either.

The ultimate sin under liberalism is “racism,” which can be roughly defined as whites unreasonably advancing their interests at the expense of others. That which liberals wish to destroy, they connect to racism, as the herd has been conditioned to react to this term with unthinking vehemence.

Absurdly but alarmingly, college students are already being programmed to associate Christianity with racism through slavery:

Students taking [University of South Florida]’s “Culture and Society in Africa” course were recently assigned a textbook that describes organized Christianity as the greatest purveyor of slavery in the 18th and 19th centuries.

According to Introduction to African Civilizations by John G. Jackson, Quakers were the only Christian denomination to take “a firm stance against the slaveocracy.”

“Anyone who is familiar with the history of black slavery will note that the strongest bulwark of the slave system was organized Christianity; or in other words, the various denominations of the Christian Church,” states the textbook obtained by Campus Reform.

It isn’t enough just to swallow and regurgitate these vicious lies. Students must disseminate them.

According to [a] student, Dr. Linda Tavernier-Almada, an adjunct faculty-member at USF, instructed students to discuss the aforementioned material with their peers as one of their graded participation assignments.

Students who don’t know any better, and these days many don’t, may actually believe these calumnies.

According to one student, the textbook “obviously means that the Christian people were the ones who actually started slavery.”

Slavery was of course a worldwide institution that far predates Christianity, going back into prehistory in every part of the world. It is no longer prevalent largely due to the white and Christian British Navy, which made use of its dominance of the seas to cripple the slave trade.

As Dinesh D’Souza observes,

The anti-slavery movements led by Wilberforce in England and abolitionists in America were dominated by Christians. These believers reasoned that since we are all created equal in the eyes of God, no one has the right to rule another without consent. This is the moral basis not only of anti-slavery but also of democracy.

Native Africans and Muslims have always played major roles in the African slave trade — and still do. But that doesn’t support the Narrative, so you probably won’t learn about it in school.

Once again leftists are using 1984 as an instruction manual. As Orwell put it,

george-orwell-who-controls-the-past-controls-the-future

We are in for an ugly future is we let these lies stand.

    The Left was quite shrewd in infiltrating the education system and the media decades ago. Brainwash the masses in school when they are young and then reinforce the lessons at home as they get older. This brilliant coup is what has made the nation what it is today-a mass of ill informed sheeple that keeps the usual suspects in power because they are too brain dead to know any better. Making sure history is distorted and falsified as in this case makes sure the ignorant remain good sheeple.

    Teach them leftist pablum and revisionist history in school and college. Control the media to make sure they stew in leftism for life. Use crony capitalism to control big corporations so they help enforce PC in return for special treatment and regulations which ensure that small businesses can’t compete so more and more people only have the option of working for big companies (so people can’t speak their mind without fear of getting fired). It’s a neat package.

    If you haven't seen it, there's a great movie about William Wilberforce released a few years ago called, "Amazing Grace", I highly recommend it.

    That means “rule by “… well, Slavs, technically.

    These people can’t even make up words convincingly.

    A good deal of that pablum is taught in the colleges in the US, and many exist today because of Federally guaranteed loans. I know I’ll sound like a broken record, but when Federal funds dry up at these colleges, the level of moonbattery will begin to recede as many will go out of business and the leftists that were teaching have to get private sector jobs!

    Slavery would have had a tough time existing without Muslim slave traders. They were the ones who caught the Africans and sold them into slavery to European traders. Senegal was one of the major jumping off point for the slaves. The fact that millions of White Europeans were captured and enslaved by Muslims who raided the Mediterranean coasts of Europe for centuries. LONG before the discovery of the New World and certainly before America existed, is, I guess something not worth having a conversation about….And FYI, it was Christians who were an integral part in the ending of the slave trade in Europe and in America…Does a fellow by the name of William Wilberforce ring a bell?

    “…Dr. Linda Tavernier-Almada, an adjunct faculty-member at USF…”

    1. Adjunct = Vita sucks; can’t get a job; need 4K cash for graduate school loan.
    2. Hyphenated name with “Dr” in use = HR/department/college quota maker; talkin big and actin rich. Can’t tolerate Ph.D. for some reason.
    3. USF = Fortunately, the students here will act on this.
    3a. State school; Instructor required to administer SPOT (student perception of teaching) survey; see #3 and SPOT student comment section. Department Chair is direct supervisor for adjuncts and establishes semester to semester contract based on SPOT results (or lack of other warm bodies).
    4. Gives points/credit for discussion group activities = trying to give an easy class to increase SPOT evaluation numbers and increase future contract odds. Can’t figure out a way to make a multiple-choice exam on course content–course content to subjective. Also, doesn’t want to read papers.

    All this and more for 200 bucks a semester hour…
