  2. They become slaves after wars defeat. like any other time in the world. There was a queen see was from Africa and she solid p.o.w. to Spaniards and then would sale and trade them off. Sorry but we don't start any slave trade. The Lost tribes of Israel was slaves in Egypt. But on the other hand. That's the days of old people and should we all feel blessed by God.
    Because we are born in America
    I feel blessed to have been born in the USA.

  3. Africans catching and selling Africans: “On any given day in 2016, an estimated 9.2 million men, women, and children were living in modern slavery in Africa. The region has the highest rate of prevalence, with 7.6 people living in modern slavery for every 1,000 people in the region.” Can’t hide from the truth…🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂

  6. 1:41 The incentive for overseas colonial expansion was NOT based on simply "filling the treasury" of wealthy Lords and Aristocrats tho… if that's what you're saying.

    The main reason to venture out into the remote corners of the world was to generate new income thru commerce and trade relations and to cultivate new crops in area's with favorable climates. Yes, to accumulate wealth, and bring it to Europe.., where it was much needed to finance the numerous wars they fought with each other.

  7. Webster's Dictionary 1828

    AMER'ICAN, adjective Pertaining to America. AMER'ICAN, noun A native of America; originally applied to the aboriginals, or copper-colored races, found here by the Europeans; but now applied to the descendants of Europeans born in America.

  8. All i know is slave or not, i dont want to live near them or deal with them.

    Theyre negative spirits that inhabit human forms and are here to spread their negativity and stupidity and violence.

    Every neighborhood they migrate to becomes a crime infested dump full of drugs,violence, all types of random petty crimes. This is AFTER slavery.

  9. Its impossible to be so called blacc and be a slave..
    You have to be Slavic aka Slovakian to be a Slav or Slave ..
    And the spanish wasn't looking for wealth , they were looking for gods children to destroy and a land to live since they were kicced out their own land
