CHARITY VOUTETH NOT ITSELF, IS NOT PUFFED UP

The above man sent emails to thousands of people attempting to scam them out of their money.

But Ron Rosenbaum in the Atlantic Monthly thinks this man and the other people caught in their scam by the “scam-baiting” community is being mistreated.

I feel something has gone a bit wrong with the evolution of the scam-baiting community. What started out as a good-natured form of rough justice has become, in some respects, a theater of cruelty

You see, most of the “victims” of anti-scamming are African blacks. They’re not African-Americans; not decedents of slaves, but Africans. Somehow this issue is conflated with racism and like whenever that happens things Stop Making Sense.

A “victim” explains:

Some body has to pay what we call retribution From what Africa went through during the Slave trade era… The west took all our resourses, Manpower…[sic]

This quote and the sympathy it inspires in Mr. Rosenbaum belie the history of the slave trade. Africans were more than complicit in the trade. In fact, the most profitable link in the slave “value” chain was run predominantly by African blacks. While competition between shipping companies drove down profits moving people from Africa to the Americas, tribal leaders (with a monopoly on the sale of their people) profited.

  1. They should at least contemporize and blame the global arms trade and Western political interventionism for their hardships.

    On that note, I want reparations from the British for the damage they did to my culture by introducing opium. I think I’ll go scam some white kid out of his juice money. That should set things right.
