From another thread . . . I get the feeling I asked a question with an obvious answer, so I am ready to be educated. The reason I asked the original question is because the only information I have heard about the Dutch in Africa has been 1) the slave trade which they participated in and 2) the Dutch Calvinist settlement of South Africa to which they brought Christian culture (with the help of some Huguenots). I believe the slave trade was clearly wrong, but can't see the South Africa case as wrong. What am I missing? Thanks for your help.
