Better off for slavery

I guesss this is not so much of a confession as it is a theory. That being blacks in our country are better off because of slavery. Don't get me wrong, I am not justifying one people group owning another and the things that were done. What I am saying is take a look at blacks in the western world and then look at blacks in Africa. Here they have oppertunity for success there they live in some of the worst conditions in the world. Here we have professional athletes, entertainers doctors, lawyers etc. And all of that oppertunity came because there ancestors were slaves. Look at the Biblical story of the Jewish slaves. They spent 400 years like that. And in the end they were much better off. Same with the black slavery in America. Yes they were slaves and were treated horribly but if it weren't for slavery where would they be today? In a ghetto in Africa. Your thoughts?
