Feel that, graduated college without networking or anything and now I can't find a proper job to jump-start a career. I'm stuck working full time in a shitty wagie labor job. I even went to multiple staffing agencies and they've just given me radio silence after saying they would help me find a job. There's no way out without meeting the right people, I just wish they didn't feed me the bullshit of "work hard and you'll do alright" because that is the worst meme in modern history.
and Im about to go to my homies house to eat popcorn and watch superbad and american pie till 4am
There's seven billion of us. Such a tiny fraction of those'll ever make name. The moment you can let go of the feel that your life needs to be somehow special and you stop constantly comparing yourself to famous winners it gets better.
Also, your greentext was a terrible read and you should feel bad of being such a whiny princess.

Why did it take so long for Abolitionism to exist, let alone be popular enough to actually start enacting change?

Why did it take so long for people to realize slavery was bad?

Christian and Europeanized (in regards to political and legal frameworks).
Slavery may be a natural part of life and necessary for the maturation of civilization (not to mention, it's not that bad anyway). But I believe it will be entirely possible to overcome or diminish it in the future with the technological refinement we are experiencing today. There's no reason for us to be against making society a better place.

I mean, it is still kind of bad.

Is Eliezer Shlomo Yudkowsky right about slave owners being worse than Nazis?

WW2 German conscript soldiers (i.e. slave soldiers, "conscription" is a euphemism) yes, ideological nazis no and he's not even making that argument.

Why would they hate those that pervert the will of God?
Because Christianity is obviously false to everyone who thinks about it for more than a minute, and the only people on this board who believe otherwise are people who were atheist two years ago and bought into the tradcath meme.

Give me one reason why slavery is wrong.

How? A cute sex slave was worth 3 months salary at most
that's a very grotesque image, it makes me all the more glad that slavery is of the past.
During the reign of Augustus, freeing slaves became so fashionable in Roman society that Augustus had to institute a cap on the number of slaves who could be freed in a year because of the crippling labor shortages it was causing
honestly I’d like having a qt house slave to do stuff for me. Pretty much I have no more qualms about owning a slave myself.

An extraordinary battlefield myth soon spread like wildfire. This maintained that young French women, the lovers of German soldiers, were fighting as snipers against the allies. These rumours were soon picked by British and American war correspondents eager for sensational stories. But a number of incidents also found their way into official reports without any doubts expressed about their authenticity. For example a lieutenant with the American 1st Infantry Division reported that they had encountered "four women in German uniform as snipers in trees and five in the town. I only saw one closely enough to identify her as a woman. She wore the German uniform and looked like a French woman."

American troops who had never been abroad before tended to see France itself as an enemy country, despite the attempts of the military authorities to inform them of the true situation. Some officers gave orders to arrest or shoot any French civilians encountered in the immediate invasion areas. Certainly French men and women found with German weapons were shot on the spot before they had a chance to explain. The possibility that they might have been collecting these weapons for the resistance never occurred to the soldiers concerned.
At the time, most of them would be just as good at Japanese as most Anglos are at Spanish.
And that's just the language itself. Not counting the different religion, cuisine, celeberations and so on.

Does Sickle-cell gene in Europeans correlate with African ancestry?

If only Apartheid institutions had seen this map
SA natives are not african
They absolutely are African. Moreso than other Africans infact, especially when you consider how long they've been there.
I think that he was talking about Zulus and not the San.
Sickle cell exists in areas that have water drenched areas or used to have swamps.

It's distribution in Africa isn't even uniform since who has it typically lived in areas where they cut trees down which led to more stagnant pools of water forming.
? They are also African

How could they appear from nowhere and just btfo everyone in eastern europe?

Ok, prove that Germanic people are Scythian.

And I'm by no means in favor of this endless struggle our people are entangled in.
I am suspicious though of Germans and Germanic people in general because our experience with your kind hasn't been that great t b h.

both of you shut up , they werent slavic and they werent germanic . end of story .
second, no more brother wars
I am sorry for not seeing your post until now anon. I don't know if you will see this but I will post more of the article for whoever wants to read it. If you find errors in this text call me out for it,

To obtain a good understanding of the cultural history of the slavs we must understand that they, especially starting from the 10th century, were the target of an extensive slave trade which was canalized towards the rest of the world through trade stations in Germany and France. This trade had traceable effects on language as germans and arabs began to use the word for slav to refer to slaves (saqaliba in arabic) in the 10th centuary there was also an growing stigmatization of the ethnic group within west slavic lands.

This trade network reached as far as to distant lands such as north africa and Iberia but also scandinavia. On the island of "Mölleholmen" at Ellestasjön, north of Ystad a slavic settlement has been found. It's believed it's purpose was to act as a transit station for slaves. The incitement for the trade was the great demand for laborers at the viking age plantation styled farms.
Slavery was naturally a profitable way of organizing the labor force and it has been proposed as much as 30 % of the population was unfree. The discussion on the exact nature of those workers is problematic though, as the words unfree or slave easily makes one think of brutally subjugated and exploited workers chained and controlled by their polar opposite, the land owners. Rather it should be thought of as a scale, ranging from unfree to free. The relationship between the two parts should not be seen as onesided, rather both groups could have something to gain from it, either in the form of laborers or protection.
Under favorable conditions someone could advance in rank and go on to become a supervisor of the farm, a so called "bryte". The unfree could be given land and after a couple of generations have his decadents be considered free.

Is this true?

Slavery had existed in England since 1066 you mean. It was only really abolished in the 18th century.
Normans actually abolished slavery per se. Only to establish serfdom in England, though.
Blacks were still negligible in English history until the 20th century.
If you say so.

It was destroyed/stolen when Babylon sacked Jerusalem

Can't remember if a second one was made but the Romans probably destroyed/stole it

Sure the gold was melted down into something else by now
Hebrew-lead archeology and scholarship show much of old testament "history" was bullshit. Who knows? There may have never been an ark as described in the Torah.

I dont know but I do know that it probably was an Egyptian box containing the records of Atlantis that was stolen by the Hyksos and that the Hebrews inherited it.

Whoever will find it will find the absolute truth about Atlantis and the true ancient history of mankind.

Out of all the we wuzzers, who is the most correct?

Afrocentrists and Nordicists. Ancient Southern Europeans were Nordic and ancient North Africans were Black.
Then how come Xiongnu don't share most of their haplogroups with Korean?
the Albanians
There is not single proper study done on Hunic genitics.We don't know their haplogroups.Also, Haplogroups can change .Huns adopted many non-huns into their tribes through marriages.(see: European graves of Hunic women).Its very probable that Proto-turks migrated to Korea through Northern China and Mongolia.Especially considering the theory of Altaic language family.
"Mongols" are not the only inhabitants of Mongolia,it's more of an umbrella term.Various turkic tribes inhabited Mongolia and still do.Its highly likely that these Turkic people who were proto-huns migrated to Korea.

This theory gets a bad rep because it is supported by Korean fanatics but it's pretty solid.

Is there something about Shia Islam that makes Shia more amiable to Christians? Or is it just that currently it’s an expedient alliance?

In the United States it is. He's probably referring to /pol/ types who prefer an alliance with Iran because it would piss Israel off.
/pol/ types but also communists. Big horseshoe issue, maybe the biggest in Western countries right now
