Slavery was pretty much everywhere at that time including.......GASP.......China, where male slaves  ...

Roman times

Apparently in Roman times Senator Cicero advised someone against buying British slaves.He said they were stupid.
9/11 was an inside job.
No second plane.It was a bomb.Bomb in the other building.
You KNOW without a doubt the videos are fake,right ?!
Planes don't meld into steel and concrete buildings.They crash into them !!!!!!!
It's amazing how the building ate the plane !!!
Imagine those fragile wings cutting slots in massive steel columns !!!!!
How STUPID can they think the people are to believe that crap ??!!

There is a difference between "acquiring wealth through slave trading activities",  as described by petera as DUTCH WEST INDIA CO's reason for existence, and slavery.

In any case, what you referred to was a practice used by the imperial court only, so try not to write as if China practiced slavery on a massive scale like you white folks did, dearie.

Did the Yuan dynasty fit into Mr. Chegsboy's description of "pretty much everywhere at that time"?  i.e. The era of Dutch West India Co?  Maestro lebeast?

Yuan 1271-1368

Dutch West India Co (In the 1600s, this company was more successful than Microsoft today) made its fortune from slave TRADING.

They are separated by 300 odd years, maestro.
