Blacks Are Inferior

In discussing the peculiar institution, Thomas Jefferson, no less than the principal author of the U.S. Constitution and the third president, wrote, “I advance it, therefore, as a suspicion only, that the blacks … are inferior to the whites in the endowment of body and mind.” Scientists initially said Blacks had smaller brains and even less gray matter in their brains.



Blacks Are Physically Different

During a debate, the so-called great emancipator himself, Abraham Lincoln, said of the two races: “There is a physical difference between the white and black races, which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality.”

  1. how about blacks on black along ethnic lines?

  2. The bible is of the western world, that is why my holy father can think of gays in the church and also the writings from the book of titus and so on.

  3. These whites were a bunch of insane criminals, and many still among us. What made them think that about blacks, when it was themselves they were describing, and more.

  4. Now for the $10,000 question.
    What is the Muslim reason and why do they still condone slavery?
    BTW – It was Muslim slavers that sold many Africans to the American traders.
    How come that little rid-bit was left out?

  5. Wrong!!!!!!
    It says in the Koran to set your slaves free!!!

  6. That's called divide and separate to conquer

  7. Theodora Anagor says:

    Korielle Hampton Sorry Kory the man is right, Arabs started Enslaving Africans after their exit from a 900 year rulership of Europe, they went in Aficans came out mixed borderline Caucasian, and they saw Africans in the same way, they started enslaving Africans in the 7th century, it ended officially in the late 1970's, it still goes on today in Arab held countries like Mauritania, Niger and Sudan illegally.

  8. Theodora Anagor says:

    It was left out because it has nothing to do with what happened on American soil.

  9. Errol Cooper says:

    Korielle Hampton That's how the pagan mis represented God to us, so that he could deceive us into think we were to worship him instead of God1 it's called a stumbling block which is used today as we speak! God warn us of this day, letting us realize that there is no happiness while we are here in this land. We are members of the Twelve Tribes of Israel, God warned us ,All those who Claim to be Jews are not!!

    Way to derail Alan J Morgan

  11. Sean Thomas says:

    Slavery amongst other African nations was not the degrading and horrific experience that it was for those enslaved by European settlers.For African nations the institution of slavery was strictly for labor purposes and to make the distinction btwn the have's and the have not's.Their system of slavery while I'm sure was not easy, was not constructed to castrate, demean, dehumanize, and inflict udder horror on a race of people due to the color of their skin.

  12. Errol Cooper Do you relly believe all that? And why, you do not have no proof, and if you believe in the bible after what it was created for, to me that is a shame before the creator. You folks need to stop quoting things from the bible.
