Schooled by Youtube: America’s Wealth……From the Backs of Our Ancestors

0 Posted by - January 13, 2018 - Video

At Black Then, we often see videos that make us stop and think. They frequently reveal information that is not broadcast to the masses and great talents that are not shown in mainstream media.

In a video posted on The Great Griot Youtube channel, we learn more about America was built off of the back of slaves. This wealth created did not disappear after the “Great Emanicipation” neither was it shared with the new black citizens of America. It remained with colonizers and their decedents creating a wealth disparity that we still see TODAY.

    Whites got rich by murdering, raping and enslaving people all over the world and setting up evil white supremacist governments.
    The belief that whites achieved all of their wealth and advantage by HARD WORK is an absurd historical fantasy and a LIE.>>> http://www.finalcall.com/artman/publish/Perspectives_1/article_7867.shtml …… AND …… Yet without Black People, whyte America:
    Would be lot poorer – it got rich in part on the backs of Black People who were FORCED into generational slavery and, later, through cheap Black slave labor wages. This has helped to underwrite both industrialization and LAZY whyte comfort. Black slave laborers built America’s infrastructure, including its buildings, roads, bridges, and railways. Blacks built America—just as they built the pyramids in Egypt—and then gave civilization to the new man on earth, the European. >>>>http://blackinamerica.com/content/287839/ten-best-lies-of-black-history

    When you read the real history, I feel so defeated and helpless. I know I be never ever been free.

    Concentrate on the ill-gotten wealth. Remember the cotton tax and head tax in Article 1 section 9. The emotional plea goes nowhere. Create a atmosphere of I got what you need and You got what I want. But what is sad about this documentary, the so few views thus far.

    Thank you for this video Sister. A correction needs to be made in this video. You attributed the word Negus to mean a negative racial epithet. It actually means king. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Negus

    For those who want more context about the full truth, read The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews. I'm not part of the Nation of Islam. However, as a Black man, the truths in the The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews and related info cannot be denied. http://noirg.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/TSR.HighlightsKeyPoints1.pdf

    How can this be true if only approximately 4% of the population owned slaves???…hmmm. Also, did you know that out of the 15 million slaves that were transplanted, only about 6 percent, about 400,000, came here to the US? The rest went to South America. Now, if about 400,000 slaves are responsible for making this country what it is today, why couldn't the millions upon million of slaves headed to Brazil keep that country from being pretty much third world in many areas. Slaves are slaves right? Did american slaves have some special talent, or propensity to building things?? You need to answer that question for yourself. The logic simply doesn't work.

    Another fact I will throw in about slavery. Did you know about 28 percent of free blacks owned slaves which is a greater number than whites at certain times? Here are a few names for you to Google, Anthony Johnson, Antoine Dubuclet and Justus Angel to name a few.

    Another fact..There were white slaves and hundreds of thousands were kidnapped and brought to America; their middle-passage death rates were comparable to those of black slaves; they were sold at auction and traded for livestock, they were routinely beaten—sometimes to death—and an estimated one half of them died before gaining freedom. It's possible that more whites came to America against their will than blacks. Historians from both ends of the political spectrum say that white slaves were treated worse than black slaves.

    So, this whole.."this country was built on the backs of slaves", is utterly ridiculous.

    Research for yourself to seek the REAL TRUTH..if you dare.

    Btw…I'm black.

    Negus (Ge'ez: ነጉሥ, nəgūś IPA: [nɨguːɬ]; Amharic: nigūs?; cf. Tigrinya: ነጋሲ? negus) is a royal title in the Ethiopian Semitic languages. It denotes a monarch such as the Bahri Negus of the Medri Bahri in pre-1890 Eritrea and the Negus in pre-1974 Ethiopia.

    NGS are uraeus symbols of divine energy. The "N" and the "S" are sn waves of a magnetic field. at different frequencies. The "G" is a arc/arch/dark symbol representing the oneness of 3. If you want to see if a word is fit to describe you look within the word at the symbols that give it meaning. Thank you my NeGuS.

    It came in the guise of business but it has always been personal. You know it's personal when you get shot 16 times in the street. Is that good for "business"? Sure. but it's definitely personal.

    I don't think America could pay reparations to all the blacks, why? Well Canada can't pay back the Natives, yet we are "recognized" given a number and a card with our pictures on it…. The difference in population as well The U.S has 320 million people while Canada with a bigger land mass but only 30 million people I think would have a factor

    How can America be one of wealthiest countries when America has trillions of dollars of debt?

    tbh

    Up to the people who support the Confederates to take down the flag.

    Blacks shouldn't be playing the fool and saying that they should take the flag down.

    I co-sign this video 100% but I still know we as black still must build today for tomorrow for ourselves. That being said this video should put to rest any notion of the propaganda of white supremacy saying slavery had nothing to do with the prosperity and wealth of America but the hard work innovation and intelligence of whites that came from Europe. This video by Dr Arthur Lewis – White Economic Domination Worldwide will bring the economic picture even more clearer.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0NwWGgCLvok

    Excellent vid on why it's inportant to fight for what is owed to us! Hmmmm…Their beneficiaries sure don't mine living in the "past". Although their quick to tell you. "I've never owned any slaves." While we've got present day negros who say, "black folk need to stop living in the past." Your master sure taught you well.
