    Why do black nationalists not cite the African kingdoms for reparations?

    There can be no demand without supply. And the Europeans did NOT force the Africans to give them slaves. It was greedy African kings who agreed to do this, since they got their cut from it.

    It's often said that the kings of Asante (in modern Ghana) and Dahomey (modern Benin) didn't know of how barbaric the conditions in the slave forts and ships were.
