Re: Will Western Europe and the US Pay Out to Slave Descendants?
Actually they were bought mainly by muslim Arabs in the 8th century And I don't recall Slavs being sold all over Europe - when did that happen?
and the etymology of 'Slav' is not that simple. Slav partially comes from slovo (which means 'word' in slavic languages) or slava (fame).
This sounds like you are excusing slavery except for that practiced by Europeans. Is it because you hold Europeans to a higher standard than everybody else? If so that's a good example of the "soft" bigotry of low expectations.

Some say that youth is wasted on the young. I disagree. I think that wisdom is wasted on the old. All you can do is give it away and the ones that need it want no part of it. Especially those you are closest to. Raymond Reddington
