For this scenario to be plausible black people would have had to have a much higher level of technology than white people, as level of technology determines who wins wars (at least military technology, Eg. Mongols were inferior technologically to the chinese overall, but had better military technology). And in order to enslave someone you have to win many military battles at a minimum.

1. Africa has very poor climate for agriculture.

That documentary is about guns, germs and steel, and it explains why when the middle east's climate changed, making growing crops harder its great culture declined and why the poor agriculture of africa kept it down.

2. In terms of many relevant statistics Japan, an almost 100% asian country does better than most if not all european countries.

Watch the doc.

1.The US didn't become a superpower because of slavery. In fact at the end of slavery the US was a relatively minor power. Also the arab slave trade might have had more black slaves than the atlantic slave trade.
Quote:
Historians estimate that between 650 and 1900, 10 to 18 million peoples were enslaved by Arab slave traders and taken from Africa across the Red Sea, Indian Ocean, and Sahara desert.
Quote:
The Atlantic slave traders, ordered by trade volume, were: the Portuguese, the British, the French, the Spanish, the Dutch, and the Americans. They had established outposts on the African coast where they purchased slaves from local African tribal leaders.[3] Current estimates are that about 12 million were shipped across the Atlantic

If you wanted to single out the number 1 reason we became a superpower its because of imo, our patent laws that helped attract talent from around the world and give an incentive for invention and innovation.

2. White people have been enslaved throughout history. By other white people and by arabs. When threatened with death people tended to work hard no matter what.
Quote:
To a smaller degree, Arabs also enslaved Europeans. According to Robert Davis, between 1 million and 1.25 million Europeans were captured between the 16th and 19th centuries by Barbary corsairs, who were vassals of the Ottoman Empire, and sold as slaves.

Edit: my final point is that white people enslaved black people primarily because of agriculture. Had white people lived in the poor agricultural lands of africa and had black people lived in the fertile agriculture of Europe, I think black people would have enslaved or committed genocide upon white people (what happened to the native americans).

Good mores, good laws, and an ideal geographical location.

Patent laws on their own wouldn't do shit.

Obviously I was over simplifying. I just meant our laws that promoted economic development and created an economic incentive for innovation and invention.
