My figure of 10 million Africans transported as slaves to the New
World between abaout 1500 and 1850 or so comes from Bonham C.
Richardson's The Caribbean in the Wider Context. I don't have the
exact date or publisher on hand, but I will furnish them upon request.

I don't know where the Senator got his information; a much more
realistic figure would be between 1 and 3 million. Ray Scupin
(Anthropology: a Global Perspective 2/ed, p. 425) reports 1.2 to 2.6
million; the source given for this is D. Ubelaker (1988) "North American
Indian population size, A.D. 1500 to 1985", in the American Journal of
Physical Anthropology 77:298-94. For the record, the population of
native North Americans in 1985 was about 1.5 milion; this was up from
around 250,000 or so at the time of Woundtherefore, how can "whitey"

And, by the way, I don't have a "line." Believe me, I'm way too far
left to be following any so-called "PC line".

You are missing at least two points. Modern anthropology suggests
that there is no such thing as "whitey", except as a social/cultural
phantasy; same is true of "blacks", "asians", etc. So what are you
worried about? You can't be destroyed if you don't exist!!

Second point: it is not "whitey" that needs to be blamed; it is,
instead, the racist and ethnocentric ideologies backing programs of
action that have been carried out over the centuries in the name of
religious doctrine (capitalism, christianity, whatever). True enough,
western Europeans have tended to be the ones with the military and
economic power to carry out these programs. But, I point out again,
they are perfectly capable of carrying them out against each other
(have you heard of Northern Ireland or "the former Yugoslavia"?). To
find examples of non-Europeans behaving similarly, just check out
Rwanda, or East Timor. People do not do evil because they have "white"
or "black" or whatever genes; they do evil because they can be talked
into believing that doing evil is the right thing to do.
