    Why do people obsess with Blacks enslaving Blacks even tho those same people like to say Irish were enslaved first and treated worse(they did and it was funny) or ignore Whites enslaving each other Muslims enslaving whites?

          Yeah because Arabs totally didn't place an emphasis on black Africans. Lol, this is like a israelite saying "nazis holocausted us but they killed lots of poles, take that!" Retard.

            Wrong since they enslaved or bought slaves many groups. that';'s why you see euro slaves in MENA under different era or the use of Arabs slaves.

            Arabs pretty much shit on every group in Arabia just so you know.

    Why would a guy who lives in presumably western country learn about Omani or Swahili history? It's not like your history books care about anything that's not ww2 anyway

      Don't be so disingenuous, this guy sold slaves to the west, its not like he was concentrated entirely within his region. If western schools teach about ancient Egyptian and ancient Chinese history, then I'm sure they can make space for another element of the slave trade, especially since that's a favourite topic of western academia.

        Were those slaves transported over to the New World?

          Yes

          Is his story relevant to the Atlantic Slave Trade?

          Yes, he was a major player. You think schools should only teach about the "white" men who traded and sold slaves while ignoring the Arabs and their allies?

                His intentions are clear when discussing this person. He believes that the US only focuses on white slave owners because it's part of a "israeli plot" or at the very least it's some form of "white liberal guilt" and "leftists propoganda" in schools to make Whites look as bad as possible without discussing black slave owners. He is immediately exposed when bringing up a black slave owner that had absolutely nothing to do with the Atlantic Slave Trade (he was literally born after it ended) and asks why American schools aren't teaching more about this person (the implication is clear).

        They don't, Egypt gets maybe 1 chapter and China is mentioned in passing
        If you dont learn about the Red Turbans or whatever huge wars, why would you learn about this 1 Swahili warlord

          I had month-long units on both, it was from comprehensive sure but at least my district/curriculum tried to make everyone globally rounded and not just teach the west.

        Tippu Tip sold slaves to coastal Omani/Zanzibar, various internal African slave markets and to the ME and a few others.

    He got mentioned in my course on 19th century imperialism I think, because Euro opposition to the intra-African slave trade was a big motivating factor. And because it's part of the story of the Congo Free State, 'cause appointing him a provincial governor while claiming to be stamping out slavery was the ultimate act of cynicism.
    But I don't remember much about what I learned in school vs. just from reading books later.

      That instance isn't even really exceptional in that time period (not that I want to mitigate it however). Many colonies still made use of slaves in labour due to limitations of the state. In the case of Britain in West Africa since abolition had the precedent of paying slave owners compensation they could not do that again in West Africa due to the sheer cost, and for the many labour needs of the colony they needed to gather up a pool of labour fast which is why often times slaves still had a presence in Brits owned or controlled areas in that region.

      This often led to clashes with Africans who were told that they'd be freed or that slavery would be abolished in British territories.
