Description

Excerpt from Historical Notes on Slavery and Colonization: With Particular Reference to the Efforts Which Have Been Made in Favor of African Colonization in New-Jersey Others attempt to justify the African slave-trade and slavery upon the ground that the condition of the slaves is thereby bettered. A great por tion of them, it is said, are in a more abject state of slavery in their own country. They are barbarians, and destitute of all civilization - hea thens, without any knowledge of a God or a Saviour: that they are sold into slavery among a civilized and Christian people, where they will have the Opportunity of becoming civilized and christianized - two great essentials to their happiness here and hereafter. This justification was insisted upon by Peter Blanco, one of the greatest slave-dealers on the Western coasts of Africa, who had upwards of thirty slave vessels in his employ, and who transported annually twenty thousand slaves. Of this he boasted, and claimed to be considered a great. Philanthropist, having been the means of civilizing and christianizing so many of the benighted heathen of Africa.
