Enslavement is one of the most evil things a human can do to another. However, no one likes to think of themselves as evil. Therefore, the slave owners needed a way to justify what they were doing. Their solution was to consider Africans as less-than humans – tantamount to animals. Then came Darwin to scientifically “prove” that Blacks must not be as ‘fit’ as Whites if they could be enslaved. This propaganda was spread for and was so successful that the belief persists to this day.
