In the documentary, I find it hurting and tear pulling to hear how Africans were treated like things that had no right to freedom and good life. At the onset of American slavery, Africans were brought into America in chains and mistreated in the hands of fellow human beings. This was the highest order of atrocity committed against mankind. As a Christian, and many who share the same view, all men were created equal before God and no one deserves to undergo such a harsh treatment as witnessed in the documentary. Similarly, no one has the mandate to subject the persons of fellow human being to torture and treat them with high level of malice as witnessed in the documentary.
How does one gather the courage to chop off body parts of his fellow human being and perpetuate blatantly crime against humanity without fear or remorse? Clearly, the Anglo-Saxon were driven by sheer greed and pride that they perceived the Christian refuges looking for a safe ground and slaves voyaged to America an absolute threat to their existence and usual way of life. The white superiority and high level of stereotyping is a sure channel to societal disintegration and spreads hates rather than unite people for a common good. It is the high level of mistreatment, maiming, enslaving and killing of the weak that has propagated hatred in America to date.
Were the blacks ever going to forget their lives as slaves in the hands of the whites? Were the Chinese ferried to America going to assume their past experience? For as long as the whites still viewed their slaves as things, the only sure outcome would be widening rift among different races, which only breed more intolerance among Americans. One faction of the society that was victimized in one area perpetrated crimes in other instances just to get even. The long psychological and historical predicament may still be motivators for some people to victimize and discriminate against others in the present America.
