Muhammad Rasheed - White people are called to account for their particular form of slavery, the unique "peculiar institution" that permanently delegated Black Africans to the bondsman class targeted along racial phenotype. Bringing up other types of slavery is only a misdirection/distraction attempting to cover over their ongoing, lucrative natural rights violations of Black people.
It's important to understand this due to the fact that the established power dynamic and wealth amassed from the anti-Black chattel slavery created the exploitative white racist aristocracy that has continued into the modern day, and if it is never addressed because of misdirection attempts exactly like this one, then we will never cure society of the United States' most enduring sin.
Martin Fledelius Daa - Please tell me how Bill Gates benefited from slavery.
Directly, not in a “well he lived in the US, so there” way.
Muhammad Rasheed - Bill Gates | Criticism
Martin Fledelius Daa - Ah, okay, so next time someone tells me that someone has benefited from slavery, I’ll just give them a wikipedia article about artichokes, because that seems to be answer any and all questions, according to you.
Muhammad Rasheed - I notice that you have “un-educated” proudly displayed in your bio line. Does that mean you expect everyone to hold you by the hand and spoonfeed you information because you think a link describing Gate’s commitment to the worsening of systemic poverty and his support of pharmaceutical companies withholding vital medicines from impoverished nations is an article about artichokes?
Martin Fledelius Daa - Aaah, so if I had written “supergenius extraordinaire with multiple doctorates and engineering degrees”, you’d have complimented me on my absolute beast of an intellect?
You did not answer my question. You merely provided information about something that wasn’t asked about.
Also: “proudly displayed”
And if you’re going to say that Bill Gates is participating in literal slavery, then oooooh boy, do you have a thing or two to explain, but then again, I’d ask you and you’d provide me with a link to a wikipedia page about potassium.
There’s a simple thing to do when you make a claim. You have to provide an argument for that claim.
You allude to slavery still being “ongoing”. So tell me where those plantations are that practice chattel slavery, please. Then we’ll go there and fuck them up together.

After you’ve demonstrated you couldn’t discern between a Gates criticism article versus an artichoke article? No.

Well, one of the continuing legacy tools of America’s chattel slave institution is the deliberate subjugation of non-white people to keep them in a state ripe for exploitation. Under the White Supremacist Ideology traditions of Western Civilization, this is a role carefully guarded by interconnected cartels of white men. Gates was clearly welcomed into that club, and benefits fully from tools and diabolical business models developed for his 1% grifter class during the anti-Black slave era.

lol You obviously love it.

I don’t know his books, so I can’t say right now that he definitively owns private for-profit prisons, or stock in the same. But since the Gates criticism article I provided explained that he 100% dedicated himself to “investing [his] assets in companies that have been accused of worsening poverty, [...] and pharmaceutical companies that do not sell to developing countries,” then I would guess that he probably does both.

Why would I go anywhere with a self-described “scoundrel” whose first reaction to seeing my anti-racism post was to kneejerk freak-out in defensive fury? No thanks.
