Interesting question

If a dealer offered to sell us a logbook or artifact from the slave trade, would our purchase of it be considered supportive of the slave trade? A controversy on this exact question is brewing in Greenwich over the National Maritime Museum's recent purchase of a Slaver's Log.

Gene X's "Profiting From Slavery 200 Years After Its Abolition" offers insight into both sides of the story.
