A stupid protest ?

A question about today's headlines seeking "I want my 15 minutes of fame" protest at Westminster Abbey.

With a name like "Toyin Agbetu", am I right in assuming that the protester is a descendant of immigrants who came to this country for a better life, not a slave brought over here 200 years ago ?

If that is the case, didn't his family come here to share in the wealth, a wealth created from slavery, or so protesters like him claim.

Also, why if he works for a group concerned with slavery is he not challenging the leaders of Ghana, where slaves were rounded up by other tribes and why is he not challenging African countries to stop slavery, which is endemic within some African countries to this day ?

Perhaps it is because in doing so he would not get his 15 minutes of fame ?
