Romans and Greeks had slaves of different "races", the vikings from Scandinavia had mostly British as slaves who were mostly whites like themselves, blacks in Africa had other blacks as slaves, Middle-eastern had both white and brown people as slave etc. I think some people in the African-American community have forgotten that white people from North and West-Europe were slaves in the middle-east and that not only blacks were slaves in the past. Slavery has existed everywhere. Every races has owned slaves and been slaves. We hears about white and European-guilt, but not about black-guilt or any other racial guilt.

I see what you're trying to do... 🤔🤔🤔🤔
Yes, slavery is wrong overall, but you know how many Africans died because of slavery?
Do you know that the effects of slavery are still present in the lives of Africans and people of African descent?
Do you know why the African continent has so many problems today?
Maybe next time you should think and read some books before posting a question like this one and saying things like: "We hears about white and European-guilt, but not about black-guilt or any other racial guilt."

Slavery has existed for long periods throughout history but the black slave trade was a little different from the other instances the only type of slavery that was racially specific and it is also the most recent and the end of slavery as well
For those reasons it is the slavery most talked about
And a side note Vikings had thralls which has a few minor differences to slaves
In my school district you don't learn about American slavery until the fourth grade (state history), and they make it pretty clear it's a race issue. After that you touch on it in 7th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grades for American History/Government classes.
Learning about non-black slaves can take place in Latin (the language) classes offered from 7th to 12th grade but with very few students (less than 30 per year in thecounty). Some teachers mention it in 9th grade world history but for the most part it's ignored.
