Yes, we were, purely for altruistic* reasons, obviously...

(Except in India, where we destroyed the textile industry in the 19th Century, when it provided 25% of the world’s textiles...)

*not so we could produce and export their raw materials, with very little of the profit going locally.

Well, come anywhere near my grand-children, and you’ll be passing teeth next time you go to the loo.

(And before anyone raises the straw man argument of "faux woke outrage", try to imagine how you’d feel if someone joked about putting your grandchildren into chains, whipping them, taking them away from their parents, and then selling them on as if they were animals - because that’s what slavery did).

heero, you stepped over the line with this one.

There's a more complete picture given in the official link below.

This woke-ism of yours is appalling.
