  1. I like how they leave out that African tribes that conquered other tribes sold their own people off as slaves … and the firsts slaves in America were the Irish’s and the first slave owner was black, Anthony Johnson a black man slave owner went before courts and not only asked for slavery but demanded it !!!…. funny how they still leave out the real history out of the books … WAKE UP PEOPLE

  2. I have the handwritten travel journal of a naval person who worked on the slave ships .Its a grueling 1st hand account of the collection and transport of slaves in the 1800s ,the portugese and a sultan and various other persons are mentioned as he encounters them on his voyage .please contact me if if this is of interest to you.

  3. I DON'T KNOW WHO NEEDS TO HEAR THIS but black people are one of the first people to be on this earth. Did you know, we were around in the Victorian era too looking all regal, and in with the times 🙂 we were healthier than most white people.

  4. Why no one even scratches the surface of all the black slavery done by the Ottoman, Mauretania and Horazem empires! It lasted more than a 1000 YEARS !!! 10´s of millions abused! Why does no one elaborate on this?! Because they were all Muslims while Maurs were also black! Now tell me im a racist for pointing this out! The modern revisionist historians are a shame!

  5. If there were no slaves rap would never exist amount many of great thing so with slaves u got American history of blacks. If you ask any black person in America were would u rather be Africa or America 100% will say America cause Africa is bad. So dry your tears and stop complaining.
