    Other studies, by Harold Brackman and Saul Friedman, reached similar conclusions. In a 1994 article in the New York Review of Books, David Brion Davis, an emeritus professor of history at Yale University and author of an award-winning trilogy of books about slavery, noted that Jews were one of countless religious and ethnic groups around the world to participate in the slave trade:

    The participants in the Atlantic slave system included Arabs, Berbers, scores of African ethnic groups, Italians, Portuguese, Spaniards, Dutch, Jews, Germans, Swedes, French, English, Danes, white Americans, Native Americans, and even thousands of New World blacks who had been emancipated or were descended from freed slaves but who then became slaveholding farmers or planters themselves.

    Davis went on to note that in the American South in 1830 there were “120 Jews among the 45,000 slaveholders owning twenty or more slaves and only twenty Jews among the 12,000 slaveholders owning fifty or more slaves.”

    I am sorry if I have offended you, Tranquillus. You try to limit the discussion to the implosions at the World Trade Center, and you get that wrong.

    Suetonius when I started in 2007; later Suet; and briefly before the curtain came down, Tranquillus.

    There were at least a dozen threads on 9/11 conspiracy in that time, each running to the maximum 10,000 posts.
    On JPP, not so much.

    Relax, C.O., you haven't offended me. Is that stalker you had on Amazon still after you, btw?

    Here's a mixed metaphor for 9/11 "truth": if the foundations are made of pie in the sky, the whole building doesn't stand up.

    Here is an Atlantic article from 1995 which makes fascinating reading.

    Almost as soon as it appeared, in 1991, The Secret Relationship generated a controversy that centered more on its intentions than its scholarship. The noise level was heightened in 1993 by the turmoil that swirled around Professor Tony Martin, of Wellesley College. A tenured professor in Wellesley's Department of Africana Studies, Martin assigned to one of his classes portions of the book, which singles out Jews for special prominence in the Atlantic slave trade and for having played a particularly prominent role in the enslavement of Africans in the Americas. He was accused of anti-Semitism, and wrote a brief book to refute the charges. The title of Martin's book, The Jewish Onslaught: Despatches From the Wellesley Battlefront, gave a clear preview of his opinions. It was a mixture of discussion, factual refutation, and angry recrimination. This last predominated, with paragraphs that opened using language like "To the Jews, and to their favourite Negroes who have insisted on attacking me I say . . ." His views on The Secret Relationship's use of historical materials amounted to a barrage of enthusiastic endorsements. Ironically, Martin's assertion that "Jews were very much in the mainstream of European society as far as the trade in African human beings was concerned" was very close to what many Jewish scholars had claimed some thirty years before.

    This week, the Southern Baptist Convention’s flagship seminary released a detailed, historical accounting of its white supremacist founding. Over 71 pages, the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary made explicit its founders’ slave-owning and the fact that its teachers and leaders used the Bible to justify it.

    When are the Democrats going to admit their current slave mentality of keeping blacks on their plantation?

    That's just the way DEMOCRATS roll......Slave owners or proponents of slavery were all "democrats". I have just one question....why is the statue of Douglas still standing in the state of Illinois?

    I read Martin's book years ago and I think he goes too far. My interest is in the slave trade to the Caribbean.. Bennett's study comes out of the study of his wife's ancestry... as does mine.

    The Slave Trade was, I think, organised mainly by capitalists in Bristol and Liverpool, very few of whom were Jewish, as far as I know. Slavery scarcely existed in the UK at the time, and was soon shown to be illegal. The whole point of the exercise was to make money, whatever the human cost, and as with almost every other horror, any guilt should be ascribed to the capitalist system itself, rather than to any particular group or individual.
