    GRRR!! I dont care what i learn about white supremacy, the more i learn, the more it breads hate in my heart for that devil.
    and they have the audacity to tell you as kids that your history began in slavery. no people in history began as slaves, all men are born free, its other men that make them slaves, but these people want to say slavery is over, they wanna say forget about the past but to this day they teach you that youre born inferior.

  2. Cheryl Hinnant says:

    Don't waste your time hating anyone. Whites are just as enslaved in this matrix as we are. Focus on love and live free. Checkout: Earthclinic.com for free medical. Getoffmoney.com for free housing and food. And getoff thegrid.com for peace of mind. We aren't slaves or victims,.. it was one of many experiences. One love-

    Cheryl Hinnant : Negropeons…smh

  8. Ransom J. Woodson says:

    I hate hearing our ancestors referred to as slaves, like they were nothing more. They were not slaves, they were humans forced into slavery! Europeans are infamous for negating the humanity of others to deem them inferior. There is something despicable about removing their humanity, and replacing it with the term, slave. Our history didn't begin with slavery, it was interrupted by slavery. We should honor them by celebrating their humanity, and the remarkable strength that they possessed.

  9. Sometimes i wish …..i could take my white skin off…

  10. LaWanda Imonfire Beezley says:

    Damn, did you just say that you would have killed her?! That's some real savage shit right there.

  11. Sundiata Keita says:

    LaWanda Imonfire Beezley i dont see the words i would have killed her. but i do see a bitch trying to take up for her slavemaster and using her slavemasters rhetoric (savage). gtfoh light skin

  12. Paul Timoll says:

    West Africans sold us to these people to endure this wickedness.This is why I have no love for these wicked African nations.Once a Nigerian told a friend of mine that he's better than him because he was the son of a slave.I can tell you my Jamaican friend gave him a cut from ear to ear for that comment…

  13. Paul Timoll says:

    Ethiopia is the only country in Africa that can earn my respect…

  14. Cee Unity says:

    Don't bother; nature is nature….smh

  17. Keith Pride says:

    It doesn’t even scratch the surface. Animals were better treated than our ancestors. Until amerikkka follows the example of South Africa and establishes a national commission to address the heinous nature of the “transatlantic slave trade” and it’s link to capitalism it will remain a cursed country destined for judgment and annihilation.

  18. Dania C Rothwell says:

    No one ever tells the Jews just get over it.

  19. All the cultures had slavery at one time or another, many of our ancestors who were slaves were sold into slavery by muslims, white europeans were not strong enough to just come in and take slaves in many of those coastal countries, in the Sudan right now black muslims are selling black people into slavery, they chop off womens breast so they can't breast feed, they rape and maime and do just about everything that's in this video and worst. I know, I'm a minister and have supported ministries that try and help these people, many of these ministries headed up by white europeans. Franklin Graham being one of them. All the world practiced slavery until American preachers during the great awaking started preaching against it as sin. America was the first nation to end it, and then the whole world followed suit, Slavery was not about race, it was about money, cheap labor. Blacks practiced it and whites and pretty much everyone else. I read the posts of alot of people on this site and there racist, you can't end racism by being racist. The preachers who ended slavery in America and then the world, believed it was wrong because they were friends with black people, saw them in the bible and the hand of God was on them and their hearts were pierced by God. People have said on this site," that white people are evil. You don't get to complain about racists, if you are a racist. All mankind is evil, of every race, we are all sinners, that's why we need Jesus to wash our sin and transform our hearts. If you go back and look at real world history, we have all abused one another. That's what sinners do and the further we get away from God as a culture, the more racism, corruption in government and everything else will increase.

  20. Cee Unity says:

    Evan Mercilesz McDonald I understand; i was just simply explaining as u what I meant also #peace

  21. Tony Rayner says:

    If you study the history of slavery as a whole you then know that the horrors of slavery have embraced at one time or another every people on the planet. However the slave cultures that existed in North and South America were the most cruel and dehumanizing.

  22. Tony Rayner says:

    People tell Jews to "get over it" all he time. Jews, Gypsies, Armenians … any group who speaks out against pass atrocities against them are told to shut-up by many.

  23. Didier Chabi says:

    The preachers who ended slavery in America and then the world, believed it was wrong because they were friends with black people, pffffff

  24. Didier Chabi says:

    Slavery was not about race, SENSELESS bro

  25. Ricardo Henriquez says:

    talk about it!!!

  26. Sundiata Keita says:

    you lying intentionally. youre trying to put slavery on black people you lying son of a bitch agent muthafucka
    1) sudanese are arabs selling black slaves you lying demon
    2) in one sentence you say slavery ended, and then you say all of a sudden it was ended in the great awakening, which one is it you lying piece of shit.
    3) america wasnt the first country to end slavery, black people in haiti ended that shit in the 1700s, not 1863

    youre a black devil, trying to protect your massa

  27. Sundiata Keita says:

    this is a white boy. you can tell cause he tried to validate all of his statements

  28. Sundiata Keita says:

    you lying like a muthafucka for some sympathy. "ALL WHITE PEOPLE AINT BAD"

  29. Ransom J. Woodson I agree, I always say, "Held in slavery". They were being held no doubt, we have the history of Harriett Tubman, helping the people held as slaves escape, there were many uprising trying to get away.

  30. Sundiata Keita Great information, it was the early 1800s, around 1804, when Toussanit L'Overture, and his army of 50,000, took care of business. Burned down every plantation, they could not tell night from day, or day from night. Toussanint L'Overture, the great black military stratgist, ever in the history of the world. He was greater than Hannabal.

  31. Please go back and read the role black leaders in Africa player, in coorporating with the invaders, and people looking to work other people fro free. Make sure your source is black. Read, 14, African countries, paying France taxes, today 2014, for colonialism. You will get a clear picture of what really happened.

  32. I learned many years ago, about the inhuman treatment our people went through, being held as slaves, this was watered down what we went through. Each time I hear or read something, it still effect me the same way. Who were these freeloading monsters. They did not have shit when they left Europe looking to survive, arriving in Africa, to commit their crimes against African people. They need to pay the debt today, for what they did to us. Reparations, now.

  33. Sundiata Keita OK, I have been called every name in the book for stating facts, there were white slaves and black slaves and pretty much every other race, has been that way through out history, blacks have owned them and whites and it is still practiced in muslim countries, like the sudan. A racist is a racist whether he is a black one or a white one. I Pastored in a church, were my members were every race, spanish, black, white, Haitian, Jamaican, Samoan, Filipino, chinese, Japanese and I was able to do it because I saw and all of our Pastors saw people not race. We treated everyone the same and everyone responded the the same. We were family and those people are still my best friends. We became family because we understood that racism was a sin like the men in the great awiakening understood and preached. And the people who try and keep racism alive are sons of the devil. I know a guy who was a bigot, gave his life to Christ and now he loves everybody because he repented from his sin. All his best friends are different races. I'm one of them. There are black and hispanic gang members who killed each other, loving one another now because of Christ. Hispanic gangs let me preach at there parties and let me know who robbed my car in the neighborhood I used to do volunteer work in because I loved them and cared about them shared the gospel with them. It's time to grow up and stop trying to make one race responsible for something we all practiced and in some countries, still do! If you treat any man different because of his race(black or white), you are wicked and need saving.

  34. Didier Chabi https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mp6Y-WJDtJM This man fault so hard to end slavery in England that it killed him!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KLyEwv0dG8 He did it because he saw it as sin.

  35. Brad Mayer says:

    You are passionate about this discussion, as am I… I would like to add my input, tell me what you think. I agree with your first sentence about the more you learn about slavery in the past and how people were treated, it angers you. Watching this video angered me. I know when you were born there was no slavery in America, racism sure, but slavery ended over 100 years ago. The reason slavery angers you so much, me as well, is because we were told about how it existed.

    This leads me to an idea. Why are we teaching slavery in school? Why do we remember the people who were forced through it? It only results in angering us. There are a lot of people who think we need to remember the people who suffered. I feel as though they believe that this is important to show respect to those people. So much so that we have a national black history month that commends those who suffered not only through slavery but also the civil rights movement.

    My idea is to get rid of black history month and no longer teach about slavery in public education. I know many people take offense to this idea, because yes I do indeed want to forget about those who have suffered. My reasoning is supported by our own natural physiological beings. When any human experiences a tragic event, a painful situation, our brains natural response is to forget it. Our brain is constantly trying to erase bad memories. It is how we function as humans to stay happy and healthy. This reasoning is supported by the scientific community within psychology. I believe if we apply the same concept to our society we will see a change over generations. So much of a change that I think it would lead to less racism overall or even an elimination of it.

    People will look at me and say you are white. If it was your own race of people you would think differently about remembering them. I get what they are saying, but I don't think they understand that racism and slavery causes me pain as well. I wish that I did not experience this empathetic pain. If no one person every told me about it I would not, however now I can never forget.

    I believe that racism and slavery go hand-in-hand. Although slavery has ended and racism is not what it was 70 years ago, there still is a problem today with racism. And even if you argue there isn't, you cannot deny that many people believe there is. I know my comments above may not entirely point to this, but I believe there is a connection between learning about slavery (along with the civil rights movement) and racism existing today. That is why I made the assumption that racism itself could be eliminated by using my ideas.

    This connection itself comes simply from the nature vs nurture theory of psychology. If you are unaware of this comment back and ill explain or you can always look it up yourself. I believe that any child is not born thinking another human is good or bad based on there appearance. It is simply taught to them. Possibly we teach children in schools today using this theory. Maybe someone once believed that if you teach about slavery and racism it will stop. Well I don't think it has. If this was how they were using this theory realistic outcomes suggest it has an adverse effect. Anyways, by not nurturing any child at all about racism they will be unable to participate in it. Has anyone ever decided if whether or not a work horse was useful based on its color? I strongly do not think so.

    So to sum it all up would you agree with what I am saying? And if not, do you have any ideas about how to end racism yourself? Let me know if I did not explain something clearly and would need to elaborate.

  37. Our history did not start with slavery…..Slavery was the first Holocaust due the the millions who die on the ships and the millions who still sleep under the waves. We as a people must remember the price they paid. Although we have a black President our rights are still being removed. Yes the topic may piss you off….We cant forget either

  38. Brad Mayer Your delusional, slavery is still ongoing! https://www.freetheslaves.net/SlaveryMap. As long as there is slavery, I will continue to hold on to my views.

  39. Brad Mayer says:

    Gregory L McAboy MEd Thanks greg. I'm trying to find solutions not dwell. Much of Black history month emphasizes the civil rights movement and slavery. If you type Black history month into goggle you will notice that the first link is wikipedia. Clicking on this link will go into explaining black history month as a remembrance of African Diaspora. You seem to be confused about what black history month means so let me explain more. The African diaspora refers to the communities throughout the world that are descended from the historic movement of peoples from Africa, predominantly to the Americas, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, among other areas around the globe. The term has been historically applied in particular to the descendants of the West and Central Africans who were enslaved and shipped to the Americas by way of the Atlantic slave trade, with the largest population in Brazil despite some misconceptions (see Afro-Brazilian), followed by the USA and others. It is clear that black history month is defined to of began with slavery.

    Black history month was chosen by Carter G. Woodson and the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History. It was chosen to be in February to coincide with Abraham Lincoln's birthday. This is because Lincoln was the president who ended slavery. If you doubt me more, try doing some research yourself. You will realize that my claims are supported by documentation.

    Don't find yourself alone in being upset about this. I myself do not think black history month should exist and you make a good point. The history of black did not start with slavery. Nevertheless, when you celebrate black history month that is what you are recognizing.

  40. Brad Mayer says:

    Gregory L McAboy MEd You believe that although we have a black President your rights are still being removed. Well I ask you this Greg, what are willing to do to change this? I do agree with you that we need to see a change in society. The comment that your responded to of mine offers a solution. A lot of people on here are complaining but they offer no truly thought out solutions. Do you agree with mine? If not then why? And what are the solutions you have thought of?

    Here is an example how you could say your rights are being removed. Black people are statistically more likely to be stopped by the police in NYC. I believe that my ideas can change this statistic if applied correctly.

  41. Sundiata Keita says:

    Brad Mayer definitely didnt read your comment, but i did read your jewish name. unless you bitches want to talk about your role in the slave trade and in the Crusades against Africans then fuck you. blocked

  42. Brad Mayer Yes I believe that if you are paying attention to the moves that the Tea Party and the GOP have tried by restricting the voters rights. One mouth out of the year cant educate a person on 1000 years of History. History is recorded by those who have the power. American history book DO not reflect the real history of America. It was slaves who built the white house it was a black man who laid the down the city plan of DC. Just read slavery by Another name

  43. Brad Mayer says:

    Crystal Blue Adams Ok Crystal… I thought we were talking about slavery in America since that's what the video is referring to. Look at all the tags such as Black American Slavery Experience Truth. I'm sorry you think I am delusional for placing a comment in the comment section with the assumption that my comments were about the video. I assumed everyone commenting on this video wanted to talk about the video. In America slavery ended in 1865.

    But yes Crystal it is true that there is slavery all over the world. Very good research. Next time you should find a video about slavery throughout the world and comment on it. The people there might be commenting about what your talking about.

  44. Brad Mayer says:

    Crystal Blue Adams I do see your point though some what. Sure in America there may be some people right now who are enslaved. Just as there are some people right now who are being murdered or raped. That is a crime in America. Our government is in place to help prevent that. I do recognize that crimes occur in America. A majority of the people do not support these crimes. However my ideas which I talked about do not address crime in America. I am simple aimed at ending racism and discrimination. Of course racism and discrimination may be a crime too but don't get confused of the ambiguity here. I am just putting out some ideas about how we can solve the problems I am focused on. Hopefully, other people will begin to do the same.

  45. Nicole LeAnn Stout says:

    This viedo has not changed my mind on slavery. My mind will never change on slavery. It doesn't matter who you are, there is no reason to treat another human as a piece of property. People who enslave and hate others based on their heritage are ignorant at the very least. Crystal, I agree with you that no one tells Jewish people to get over their being enslaved by the Egyptians, or being told to get over the genocide of their people by the Germans. From where I stand I have never told anyone on my fathers side to get over the fact that his father was targeted by whites and attacked every other day, not to mention not getting the same chance at a good education, or the other nameless atrocities that were inflicted upon his ancestors. I will be treated as if I had because of my skin color, but I will not spread the hate. I hope that peace can come to our hellish world and that we can learn from our past and not repeat these atrocities. I know it is a lot to ask, but I keep my hope that everyone who is in these circumstances now get what they truely deserve. Freedom for those who are captive, and a painful death for the opressors. Blessed be all! May a ray of hope be planted in your heart and bloom eternally!

  46. Cliff Mccabe says:

    Sundiata Keita , haiti is the biggest shit hole in the carribean. the other side of the island (dominican republic) is a tourists paradise. do you know why there is such a big difference?

  47. John W. Williams Jr. Whenyou speak about others who were in slavery, it was not the same thing, and if you are talking about the Irish people, they wer not in slavery like black people, and not nearly as long, and then when they freed them, they started treating them like the rest of whites, that did not happen to us, you cannot make a comparison, so what is the point?

  48. Brad Mayer Stop teaching African people we were held in slavery …. I bet you every dime I have, you will not tell the Jews to forget the holocaust. As for teaching about slavery, it really is not teaching us what happened to us, just that we were in slavery, they don't talk about how bad we were treated, every human right violations were committed against us.

  49. Tony Rayner Maybe so, but they have been and are still being paid reparations, how do you think they created the state of isareal?

  50. Sundiata Keita says:

    Nzingha Shabaka haha yea you right. i was so mad tho and i was on a roll and i couldnt stop my flow. couldnt tell day from night, i like that. ima watch one of those documentaries tonight at work

  51. Sundiata Keita says:

    John W. Williams Jr. naww sumn aint right. i think youre a white boy posing as an african. if i could do a reverse google image search of your picture i would.

  52. Sundiata Keita says:

    Nzingha Shabaka do you know where the link is for that video about the ruins of zimbabwe on here from the other day? i cant find it

  53. Ethiopia was what black people were referred to until they changed the name to Africa. Egypt is Ethiopian daughter and ofcourse you have no idea about the richest man whoever lived Mansa Musa from Ancient Ghana or Tumbuktu and Sankore Universities . Google it for the mainstream news and education has not taught you all these yet.

  54. America was never not the first country to end it. All other races had slave but they were not considered a property. They were POWs, it is only those with the bible who made it worse adding their future kids to it as well.

  55. Most of the ships had Christian names such as JESUS and so forth. The abolitionists indeed helped but long before that some African Kings have been fighting. Example is Queen Nzingha

  56. Reparations will definitely come after the end of mental slavery. Until they should hold the money……wink wink

  57. Until you read the book "The Destruction of Black Civilization" by Chancellor Williams you will never get grip of our problems. Please go find it and read. Less then $15 on Amazon

  58. There are a lot of white people who decided to stay true to blacks even in those trying times, they moved with them, planned with them and refused to join the demonic activities of their kind. The abolitionists, some did lose their lives fighting against the injustices of their time

  59. Sundiata Keita No, I'm talking about slavery around the world and many of the nations chopped off the toes, slaughtered and mutilated there slaves, black, white and arab, all of the races have been brutal slave owners, you guys need to stop trying to make people angry and start trying to make a difference. I have seen racism stopped by a prayer to except Christ, all your doing is trying to inspire hate. History is good, it helps us learn what not to do, but when used to make people hate each other, that's evil and diabolical.

  60. Sundiata Keita The continent of Africa is one of the most problematic regions in terms of contemporary slavery. Slavery in Africa has a long history, within Africa since before historical records, but intensifying with the Arab slave trade and again with the trans-Atlantic slave trade; the demand for slaves created an entire series of kingdoms (such as the Ashanti Empire) which existed in a state of perpetual warfare in order to generate the prisoners of war necessary for the lucrative export of slaves. These patterns have persisted into the colonial period during the late 19th and early 20th century. Although the colonial authorities attempted to suppress slavery from about 1900, this had very limited success, and after decolonization, slavery continues in many parts of Africa even though being technically illegal.
    Slavery in the Sahel region (and to a lesser extent the Horn of Africa), exist along the racial and cultural boundary of Arabized Berbers in the north and darker Africans in the south.[1] Slavery in the Sahel states of Mauritania, Mali, Niger, Chad and Sudan in particular, continues a centuries-old pattern of hereditary servitude. Other forms of traditional slavery exist in parts of Ghana, Benin, Togo and Nigeria. There are other, non-traditional forms of slavery in Africa today, mostly involving human trafficking and the enslavement of child soldiers and child labourers, e.g. human trafficking in Angola, and human trafficking of children from Togo, Benin and Nigeria to Gabon and Cameroon.[2] Like I said," slavery is about power and money," It's not about race, in fact the whole race thing did not even come into play until people tried to end the practice, then people started using race to justify it. The issue has always been money and power and the evil wicked hearts of all men, of all races as proved by the fact that it continues to be practiced.

  61. Ameena M. McConnell says:

    Yes agree with Marie about so called discoveries. Significant that these uncoverings of new lands would take place directly after the Moors are conquered in Al Andalus. It was the Moors who charted circumnavigating the globe.

  62. Sundiata Keita this "old, white bitch" was raised in the caribbean, one of those throw away white kids of drunk parents. i was a minority in the extreme and was fed and cared for by blacks and whites alike. when i am home on the island i stay with the woman who has cared for me since i was a child. she is black and west indian and we are family. i found this site because another black friend of mine on the island posted the article on face book. i have many black friends because most of the people i went to school with are black. what i posted is a truth that is taught in the schools of ireland and scotland but is otherwise ignored by the rest of the world. racism and ignorance are ugly no matter what color your skin is.

  63. Evan Mercilesz McDonald thank you! it sickens me when i hear the "orphan trains" glorified. the catholic church built orphanages to protect the irish and other catholic children from the childrens aid society.

  64. J.o. Bankole says:

    This was a very powerful clip. For decades I was not comfortable looking at the time of white imposed chattel slavery of the Black Man. Despite my ebony skin, I didn't want to be associated with it. it was too painful while there was little in history lessons to give a balanced picture of our eons-long "black history" at least at the schools I attended. Something changed within me, and now I am compelled to study this time with my eyes wide open. My hart whelps but at the same time I feel empowered by having a more clear and honest understanding of what actually took place and the sheer magnitude of the crime against humanity. It is really the only thing that makes today's regular injustices against black people make any sense. The question I find myself asking is where does the social fabric in the United States turn next? From my vantage, it doesn't look good. http://www.brownfuture.com

  65. I totally agree with you; if it is not happenening in the present, ignore… if it is theen blog and blog again until someone hears yout!

  66. Allen Oteng-Manka We, (NCOBRA) do not propose individuals getting money in hand. Funds should be used to create our own little nation. Our own schools, communities, of homes, rental property, metal facilities, farms, manufacturing. Everything a people need, to progress. We will be about self determination, help build Africa back to her respectful place among the African people. We help each other. We do what Garvey had started, we fullfill Garveys ideology. We will be the most powerful group on the planet.

  67. Christian Counts says:

    if you truly want to tell people about slavery and you supposed to be a black newspaper it would be nice if you use the many slave narratives in their own words. you have many recordings of them well at least 6… I'm starting to wonder about this particular site or newspaper who do you actually work for

  68. Brad Mayer go tell the jews to forget their holocaust. you wont do that though.Europeans always want Black People to forget about what happened to them to us.Our story needs to be told and will be told. Our people need to know what happened to them and why we are in the condition that we are in today. When you want to trace the root of an illness you go to the root of an illness, that's what a pathologist does. The root of our Psychological illness begins with slavery. Once we understand what happened to us then we can start to repair the damage. Our problem is that most of us don't know were sick mentally so our story has to be told. and to tell you the truth most of these present
    generation whites don't know the full story on what happened to us but they know they benefitted

  69. Allen Oteng-Manka I have never heard, if someone is harmed, and someone is responsible, and decides to pay, and then you say, wait until I am healed. This does not make sense to me. But the funds should not be given to indiividuals, we need the funds to build, the things we need, as a group, as I proposed in an earlier post.

    Does anyone know what this excerpt is from?

  71. Brad Mayer says:

    Gregory Muhammad You are wrong to say most of the white generation does not know the full truth about slavery. Do you know how many black, white, Asian, Mexican, people have no clue as to what happened with slavery. If you can find a correlation between knowing history and skin color than show me. Otherwise you just sound racism. You are saying white people aren't as intelligent on black people regarding slavery.

    You say I wont tell the Jews to forget their holocaust. If you read my entire entry to this comment section I explained why forgetting slavery would be beneficial to society. Yeah I don't know entirely if I'm right, but that's an idea I have. Anyway, from my perspective of the world I live it does not seem that there are problems between Jews and the rest of society involving a strong hatred towards other individuals. If I am wrong tell me why. In that case my ideas may be beneficial to Jews as well. I really don't think this is the case though.

    I also don't think Europeans give any care as to what black people forget or remember in America. I'm not sure what you mean by that.

    All in all though you make a good point about tracing the illness of slavery. I really like what you said and think you are justify the remembrance of slavery well. I am no expert either. At the end of the day I think we both want to reach the same goal. Your ideas to get there are different than mine but nevertheless you are still my countryman. So thank you.

  72. Brad Mayer , your ideas are not healthy for anyone. Your the type of person who would tell a female rape victim, with postpartum psychosis, that has to look at this baby from her attacker every single day, to forget about what happened to her because it would make her a better person. Your concept of forgetting only works for those like you because it excuses you and your kind from all the atrocities that's been taking place across the entire earth ever since you stepped foot out of the caves. Also, as far as Jewish people go, your clueless about them too. They show their distaste for the rest of society by calling Non Jews Goy/Goyim. Go look it up!

  73. Brad Mayer says:

    Crystal Blue Adams Wouldn't a rape victim want to forget though? I just don't see how it would be healthy for anyone to look at their child each day and have a feeling of hate or anger.

    I get your point about Jews. Of course there are some that hate the rest of society. You really can say that about any race.

    Crystal here's a classic example of what I want to get rid of. Public schools begin teaching about slavery between 4th to 6th grade. These are kids who are 10 to 12 years old. I went to a diverse school. So there were kids in my classes white, black, and maybe even Asian or Mexican I forget entirely. Anyway my point is its awkward and uncomfortable to learn about a subject like that at such a young age. It sort of just emphasizes a negative difference between races. Its awkward for someone black because they realize their ancestors were slaves. And its awkward for someone white because they realize their ancestors were masters. No one wants to be any of those people. What would you consider worst, beating someone to death or being beaten to death? Why do we do that? Why aren't we really emphasizing our teaching on sciences. Why is it that this is what we are still talking about?

    If you feel that for yourself studying slavery, learning about how people were enslaved because of their skin color is important for you as a person then so be it. In fact embrace it. If you are angry about how your ancestors were treated and the more you learn about it the better then that's you. I'm not trying to tell you what to think or learn. I myself look at it differently, I personally want to forget. I don't see how learning about slavery is benefiting my life or anyone else.

    Thanks though for putting in the time to comment me back. I appreciate hearing your thoughts.

  74. a must read for all descendants of slaves here in America
    -"THE SECRET RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN BLACKS AND JEWS"

  75. Brad Mayer says:

    Gregory Muhammad Henry Gates, head of the department of Afro-American studies at Harvard University, heavily criticizes that book of being antisemitic. Antisemitism is prejudice, hatred of, or discrimination against Jews as a national, ethnic, religious or racial group. The book is criticized for making selective quotes and using crude statistics.

  76. Brad Mayer That's Henry Gates opinion if he indeed did make that accusation. But that book has thousands of footnotes and referrals by jewish scholars so if anything in that book is untrue than you have to blame them for the lies not the Nation of Islam for publishing the book. Their has been an outcry from some Jewish people for us to denounce the book and they( jews) would find favor with us.Besides from telling them to go hell they were told to denounce their own scholars and call them liars and prove one word in the book to be a lie and then we would denounce the book. Well that the jews have not done because they know they played the biggest roll in the history of our slavery here in America. The book is a compilation of what their (jewish) scholars wrote not what we wrote. You read it for yourself and then you critique it and not let someone else form opinions for you.

  77. Brad Mayer And by the way do you know of any jews who said the book is full of lies, No you did not because then they would have to prove its a lie and that they cant do unless they condemn their own. You found one Blackman out of thousands that have read it to be your watch dog to try and hide the evil that jews have commited against Black People and that's if HG even made those comments.

  78. Brad Mayer which brings me to this point. A RAPE VICTIM CANNOT FORGET!!!!! Also, your very naive in thinking or not being capable of seeing that there are women who cannot stand their offspring if forced to keep that child. This child is forever imprinted in the family DNA. This is what slavery is like to us. We can't forget because it is forever imprinted in our DNA. We can't forget because we have to deal with generational curses attributed from slavery. If we forget about slavery, we would not be capable of understanding why we are in the state we are currently in, thus, rendering us incapable to undo any damage that slavery has caused and still causes on a consistent basis. Because you don't have to deal with or reverse any of "OUR" generational curses does not give you the right to tell us to forget. But, like most white folks, your privileged position makes you very arrogant and ignorant to the intricacy and details regarding the state of other peoples outside of the European diaspora. What you know about how other races view slavery and genocide is aesthetic, topical and kiddie pool deep. Your discomfort with slavery comes from not wanting to inherit your forefathers guilt and debt. Our discomfort comes from having to deal with ourselves spiritually and soul deep.

  79. Jim Sawyer says:

    I would really like to know who 'they' is …. The ones teaching you. Every person is created equally. Also, its surpising to me that you blame white supremecy for slavery. Africans themselves played a large role in the Atlantic slave trade. And during that period not only were black African traders deemed as equals to their European business partners, but both parties enjoyed commerce and profit. That was a terrible period of time when some humans were treated as tools. To think or insinuate that it is no different today – that there has been no progress toward racial tensions is actually more of a slap in the face to important civil rights activists of your own race. (Dr King, Rosa Parks, Malcolm x). I'm really not sure what experiences you have been through, but there are still racist people in the world today. Black, white, Asian, Indians, etc. Its no reason to breed hatred inside of your own heart. That's a true devil.

  80. Sundiata Keita says:

    Jim Sawyer i dont answer to peckerwoods stalking me over the internet and i dont read your comments. you gotta see me in these streets. blocked

  81. Jim Sawyer says:

    Sundiata Keita and honestly man i clicked on this link because I've always deeply respected african americans. I love them just like my family and would do anything for my friends. I hear some racist white people from time to time say something out of line, and I tell them. At the same token, Ive been hated on and called a cracker by black people who dont even know me. Or heard comments such as yours about how you would kill someone, or you hating someone for having a jewish name….. like I said, i have no idea what youve experienced or been through, but taking on the mental state of a nazi isnt exactly going to help you become a better man than the other typical racists of the world.

    THIS VIDEO REMINDS ME OF THE ONE PAGE N MY HISTORY BOOK.THAT ILLUSTRATED A SLAVE SHIP WITH OUR ANCESTORS PACKED ON IT LIKE SARDINES!!THATS ALL THE INFO THEY GAVE US WHEN ALL KINDS OF ATROCITIES WERE BEING SUFFERED BY OUR PEOPLE!!! IF U GOING TO TELL THE STORY / TELL THE WHOLE STORY!! I WILL NEVER 4GIVE THE DEMONIC MENTALITY OF THE EUROPEAN TOWARD US B CAUSE IT STILL EXIST TODAY ALMOST 500 YEARS LATER!!! THEN SOME HOLY ROLLER TRIES TO CONVINCE U THAT GOD WANTED US TOO SUFFER LIKE THIS!! THATS BULLSH****T!!!! DONT EVEN KNOW U SISTHA BUT I LOVE U AND YOUR COMMENTS!! HAVE A PLEASANT DAY!!!

  90. We are still slaves and will be until our Messiah comes back to redeem those who are keeping the Father's commandments.

  91. Didier Chabi They end it because they believed it was sin, I have read some of there historical writtings and they tell you exactly why they ended slavery. Whitfield and Wesley both traveled across the country telling the people they needed to repent and end it slavery. By the way, over 3000 black men owned plantations and slaves in the south. It was about money and greed period. People try to say the Old Test condoned slavery. It did not condone kidnap slavery, that was considered evil. It did allow prisoners of war to become slaves,but that was punishment for warfare. They did not have jails, so the punishment was to become a servant of the person who conquered you. You had to treat them with kindness like apart of the family and you had to release them after a certain amount of time, most did not want to be released because they were treated well as required by the torah. We have a bunch of racism and violence being promoted based on lies and miss information and unless we stop it through the proclamation of truth and preaching of the gospel people will perish and our nation will decend into riots and violence.

  92. They are beheading them in Irag and Sudan right now and they also have sex slaves and pedophiles. It's a sin problem not race problem. People who keep saying racist things will eventually turn it into one. Sudan is black people abusing black people now today, Irag is Isis murdering people and beheading them in the name of Allah. As they believe the Koran commands them. We better deal with the real sin issue before it gets out of control. Revival brought freedom in America and in the world and the further we move away from God the further we will descend into darkness. If good is not winning, sin will win.

  96. Blair Morgan says:

    Brad Mayer Not talking about it is the opposite of dealing with it. You seriously just wrote an essay on why oppressed people should shut up so you don't have to feel bad. Do you think that their silence will stop the injustices that still go on today? Obviously it won't. You're transparent.

  97. Brad Mayer So when do we start talking about the existence of blacks? Jim Crow? The Civil Rights movement, when men like Medgar Evers were gunned down, Emmett Till was lynched, four black girls in Alabama were blown to bits by white terrorists? Your long soliloquy basically says get rid of my ancestors from history because it might anger or inconvenience some. You know what inconveniences me? The fact that men like Charles Latimer and Charles Drew and Crispus Attucks don't get their due. That John Brown is treated like an insane man for fighting on behalf of blacks and doing what he thought was right. With all of the fallacy that kids are taught in regards to history, you want to basically toss out the existence for much of the black people in America simply because it's not convenient. I have heard it all now.

  98. Brad Mayer And no…a rape victim wouldn't want to forget. I endured sexual assault as a child…and I want to make sure no one ever goes through that. So I speak out and speak up. The last thing black people want is to have folks forget…shit, if you give white people the floor…they start telling you how slavery was a good thing for black people. Yes, there are those who have gone on record as saying things to that effect (Michele Bachmann, Loy Mauch, Wes Riddle, Art Robinson).

  99. Whose perspective will change?

  100. Jose Ortiz says:

    Ethiopia, is a Greek name. Meaning burnt faces. The name was nubia and kush. And how can you respect a country that converted to Christianity? Learn your history. They practice the god and goddess concept. Amun was the creator how do you go from that system to Christianity so fast? Put your thinking cap on?

  101. Jose Ortiz says:

    Ethiopia, is a Greek name. Man what is wrong with all of you?

  102. Jose Ortiz says:

    Is that what you got out of oppression and demonization we been through. Do you hear white people say we were slaves? Or our own people enslaved us? We are the only people who make excuses for other peoples wrong. The white people were and still are savages. They createf all the worls wars. That you proudly defend. The Europeans are the real terrorist. Since day one they came out the caves.

  103. Brad Mayer We teach slavery the same reason we teach the children about those nasty, greedy, incestuous Kings of England your race loves making movies about and waxing nostalgic about – Because it was HISTORY. You can't pick and choose which history you will teach. You have to teach it all.

    I find it ironic that Every single year we REMEMBER 911 and the towers falling but when it comes to slavery you white people scream "OH FORGET ABOUT IT". Seems like you want to have it BOTH WAYS.

  104. We remember September 11th Every single year. They old commemoration gatherings, etc. But when it comes to slavery they demand we forget it.

  105. We remember September 11th Every single year. They old commemoration gatherings, etc. But when it comes to slavery they demand we forget it.

  106. Deuteronomy 28 : 15-68 especially verse 68… wake up Israelites

  107. The American system, in conjunction with the ignorance and arrogance of White – Euro Americans was/is deplorable (as detailed by the horrific abuses against the Black victims of slavery). Remnants of that system still exist in America today, and need to be faced and dealt with. The system of profiling, ( has its roots in the misguided interpretation of the 13th amendment, where it was rationalized and sanctioned by states to exploit the labors of the imprisoned black man, even after slavery was abolished). In Both periods…"then" and 'now", we can still see laws on the books, and their enforcement, as 'leveraged incarceration' , stacked against the black man in America. My Black brothers and sisters… from the depths of my heart, I am sorry for what your beloved ancestors had endured, and for the agony and suffering my ancestors had perpetuated and caused. I am saying to you that I acknowledge, and that I will never dismiss, or minimize or belittle your sense of impact. To my white brothers and sisters, not only is it unacceptable to infer that anyone "get over it" , but it is downright insensitive and disconnected. In order for healing to begin, we must recognize , and express earnest acknowledgement. That is the first step. Following that, an effort must be made to reach out in kindness, and not in contempt. Souls are neither black nor white. A meeting of souls truly goes a long way toward reconciliation, because a meeting as such, breeds new trust. That sends us on the road to peace….

  108. The original Jews were Black that were being held by black egyptians.

  109. As I look at this piece it bring to mind some of the slave mentality of some of us that other has use to exploit the masses. I say it and I'll say it again we as a people some of us must break the chain, in general principle we should have a common agenda. We must stop doing to each other what we wouldn't do or have the courage to do to others. We must not throwing some of our people under the bus unfairly steaming from envy and jealousy while having a self serving alternativeness of greed amplify with egoism that is self defeating of our collective goal. While some of us still have the house negro thinking, they still one of us or that ivory coast mind set from the motherland of Africa yet they still one of us, we must collectively get them to understand you can't be what you want to be until I be what alto be and I can't be what I alto to be until you be what you alto be for just because you got a pass here doesn't mean you will get a pass there our destiny is interchangeable in that regard. We are still playing catch up with wealth, power, and justices is still not being distribute equally for all of God children. Look no further than President Obama while criticism is fair gain while holding that position no one with a stable mind of fairness can honesty say that many of the discontent form criticism is not rooted with a passion of inequality principles of association of bigotry of the hateful word we call racism. America could never have an open honest talk about slavery because history book would have to be rewritten. America would have to admit what you taught your children was a lie. While I'm proud to live in this great country we call America and express myself in the mannerism which I do I'm optimistic that we can and will do better as a nation.

  110. Slavery ended due to changes in maritime law.

  111. Jose Ortiz This is what I mean about people being racist, if someone says all black people are a certain way, people get mad and scream racism and so they should. People are people and each one is defined by his own actions, not as a race. There are parts of America that never allowed slavery because they believed it was wrong, those areas of America where just as white as the areas that allowed slavery, same race, two different beliefs. If you said the people who did this were evil, you would be correct in your statement, but to try and demonize an entire race is disgraceful, racist and evil. When a white person does it, it's evil and when a black or hispanic person does it, it's evil. Slavery is going on in Africa right now, people could look at that and say all black people are evil and they would be wrong, because I am not defined by someone elses behavior, nor is my race. We all stand on what we do as individuals, any grouping of cultures and trying to define them by the actions of some of the people in that group is racist, in fact it is the very definition of racism.

  112. Timothy Fate says:

    Slavery, was instituted in every culture, however ( not ) black men but african decent men and women were held for tenure. The atrocity is the dehumanizations of our people for the profit, the laws created to bind us still exist and are being utilized. No other cultured enslaved is still suffering the effects except african descendants, this is the difference.
    How great is information.

  113. I don't think this does anything for a persons perspective. This video was so watered down in context, and visualization. It's like watching a natural disaster on T.V. unless you've been in one you can't understand!! Hearing stories, or seeing pictures of slaves beaten or hung IS NOT the same as seeing this events in real life!!! What this and other videos should do is make "US" as a people become more tolerant and understanding of on another. Build UNITY!!

  114. Why are some people so quick to say, "get over it" when it comes to slavery, but rarely do you hear anyone tell the Jews to get over the Holocaust? Maybe those of you, who think you have the right to tell a race of people what they should get over, should ask yourselves, what gives you the right or authority to tell the descendants of slaves what they should or should not hold on to. Ignorance nor stupidity isn't cute. Why don't you work on getting over your racially biased ignorance.

  115. Very well stated. You are the first white person who has ever apologized for whites holding our people in slavery.

  116. Nzingha Shabaka It comes from the heart and in my vision this is what white America needs to learn how to do… When a brother or sister reaches out to another brother or sister, it is to garner a level perspective; not alienate or castigate the other. It is my opinion that white America (at large) does not understand that or how important the role of sincere acknowledgement and empathy are to the process of healing. Healing is impeded and buried under layers of pride. The very first step we must all do, is drop the pride in a genuine context of intention to heal. This will take our society a long time. but I believe it can happen… and as such, I will try to set the example as an individual, hoping others can catch on.

  117. Grant Collinsworth That is a good thing, I hope you will be safe doing it.

  118. This Video, explains US. Not in 7 minutes.. Every person should be required to see this https://youtu.be/XRQ-Ci6LwVw.

  119. Please upload more information about this inhumane treatment of a people. In 2015 young black men and women don't have a clue as to who's backs there standing on.

  120. Who is this Brad Mayer? The Jews of the world are teaching their young people never forget.

  121. Brad Mayer So what you're saying is Ignorance is Bliss! Let's just forget about slavery and every bad thing in history and then we'll all be happy! We're living in la-la land!

  122. Harvey Elwood Jr what exactly are you talking about?

  123. Brad Mayer…You sound like an ignorant, arrogant, obnoxious fool. Why not forget the teachings of the Holocaust as well. Well, I guess it would be easier to remember the Holocaust because it exist only for seven years, with four years being brutal. That compared to 2.5 centuries is a lot easier to recall right? You are the epitome of the hole of an ass. That's all the black needs right now is for a white boy to tell them how they should feel about slavery, racism or anything else for that matter. Stay in your lane son.

  124. Keith Shy says:

    There is a movie on YouTube called "Goodbye Uncle Tom" it gives you a different and more accurate view of slavery…

  125. Sam Kirby says:

    Brad Mayer You don't get it at all do you. Pay us what we earned and then we can probably, and I say probably loosely, we can start to have a dialog. And I think we are owed 400 years of back pay to every black person in this country.

  126. Sam Kirby says:

    did she really say that europeans discovered the Caribbean…. WOW… I guess they discovered America to then. Damn the people already living there.

  127. Sam Kirby says:

    Kendall Liggens The original Egyptians were black before there were any Jews period.

  128. Then you put out a better video. It has to start somewhere. Walk thevwalk. Tired of the talk.

  129. Africans were not the only people enslaved.The jews were brutally enslaved 400 years in egypt,70 years in babylon and by all the ancient empires,yet they have moved on.Almost all cultures practiced slavery at one time,including our african forefathers,who were not satisfied with internal slavery,but sold their own to white business men.Slavery is spititual.Some parents have sold their children to slavery to pay off debts.Some people naturally want to be slaves,though they may not accept it.Africans should forget this slavery bullshit and wake up.The world is not waiting for you and will not pay you for the evil of slavery.

  130. Brad Mayer so you think reconstruction and jim crow was better white people kill me.

  131. Abu Yusuf says:

    A coon incarnate.

  132. the Americas and Carribean slavery system was FAR more harsh than what was established in Africa, Rome, Greece, Egypt, Babylon, China and every other society that at one point or another practiced some form of slavery….

  133. @Samuel Nwokoye The title of the video makes reference to the difference between what you're talking about,slavery/indentured servitude and chattel enslavement and it's by in large the very reason why what happened to Africans here in America is so different than the kind of "slavery" you're talking about.
    Under chattel enslavement the slave is only coincidentally a person if considered a person at all, but make no mistake they were always property first and foremost, whereas under the Hammubari Codes, the Greek Roman, Arabic, Hasidic and asiatic systems the slave DID have base/fundamental human rights protected by governing laws and codes.
    A Roman couldn't simply kill a slave without reason or cause.
