  1. “Ham: The youngest son of Noah, born probably about 96 years before the Flood; and one of eight persons to live through the Flood. He became the progenitor of the dark races; not the Negroes, but the Egyptians, Ethiopians, Libyans and Canaanites.” –

  2. One thing that is often misleading is to say there were millions of slaves sent to America, instead of the AMERICAS. Dr Henry Louis Gates, professor of African American Research at Harvard, wrote that more than 12 million slaves were brought out of Africa. 10 million made the voyages alive. Out of the 10 million, 388, 000 slaves were sent to the US. The rest ended up in the Caribbean islands and South America. And those “christians” who used their faith to justify their brutality, will stand before God and receive the punishment that is due them.

  3. Deuteronomy 28:68 And the LORD shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you.

  4. Their were no 12.5 million Africans brought to America that's a lie, it's been exaggerated to make Aborigines call themselves African than being the indigenous people of America, their were thousands bought but never 12, million. Please Watch this documentary video link

  5. A near-perfect clinic in propaganda. Just enough facts to be interspersed with and colored by race-baiting bigotry based socio-political messaging to make it palatable. Bravo. Bernays would be proud.
