This may explain why some whitefolks are obsessed with bondage and sadoism, In some way it can be perceived as an innate guilt factor festering-which is SICK cuz they are KNOWN to get off sexually when wearing these vices. It can also be deemed psychologically twisted that many whitefolks get off being tied like slaves and whipped with their faces muffled [mostly men] as they endure the pain of hard slashes from whips.

It's still very much a SLAVE culture. The whole idea of the carnival is showing female slaves on moving auction block nude dancing for massa and his boys.

What gets lost in all this is the fact that slavery was not initially racial, but was made racial, in America and the West once they figured out how dominate Black/African genes were. Another thing that is rarely, if ever, mentioned is the fact that in order for White people, [who had begun to question the morality of slavery], to participate in such a Crime Against Humanity without question, they had to villify, and demonize Black people in the minds of Whites, which would include Black...
