To answer your question why African Americans think they were the only group of people that were enslaved are do the following: 1) The racist Propaganda that was pepectuated during and after the slavery period in America. African American were told that they were inferior to whites and all other people; that they were cursed in the bible, "The curse of Ham", which stated that blacks were cursed with dark skin and would become the lowest of slaves, ( servants of servants) This myths was first orginated by Europeon Jews and is untrue. The bible tells us that God's punishes a nation to the third and fourth generation. Also, the curse was on Caanan not Ham's(3) other sons Egypt, Put, Libya, Furthermore, this prophecy was long fulfilled when King Solomon of Israel conquered and enslaved the Caananite people. They were titled the servants of servants because the Hebrew were slaves in Egypt, but eventually enslaved the Caananites. The Caananite people were of Hamite shock, but were a mixed raced do to intermarriage. (2) Do to ingnorance and lack of knowledge many African American do not realize that all races of mankind were enslaved at some point in history. Even, Eastern and Southern Europeons ( white people) were enslaved by Arab invaders in the 7, 8, and 18th century in North Africa and Arabia, and along the Barbary Coast.
