Default hypothetical attempt

if blacks were in the same position as whites were [when slavery was abundant] do you think whites would have been slaves to blacks on the same mainstream level that blacks were to whites? or do you think it's something predisposed in our genes that affects how we turn out?

If blacks could have enslaved whites, which they couldn't have due to technological disadvantages, they would have. Africans kept African slaves so whites would've been fair game.

Yes. And traditional Afrikan slavery was nothing like European chattel clavery or Arabic slavery.

You are talking about a difference in basic philosophy spiritual practices.

Holistic vs. Linear.

Afrikans lived off the land which provided all the sustanence needed. There were rivers with plush vegetation and plentiful fish. Beer and wine were fermented.

Only those Afrikans who were exposed to the West succombed to greed... Gold was always available. Mansa Musa gave more gold away than he kept.

Only one people decided gold was worth what it is deemed to be worth now. The same with diamonds.

No slaves were mining these materials until colonization.

Coming from Eu-Rope, with its harsh conditions and minimal resources, there was a different mindset. One bent on acquisition and hoarding using divide and conquor as the main tactic.
