The company that I used to work for had somebody complain about a person wearing a hat with the Confederate Flag on it. When HR looked into it, they found that they had a problem. The guy wearing the hat was Black. It was a replica hat for a Confederate Army unit from Alabama. His ancestors were members of that unit. This was going on at the time that I left for where I am at now. I don't know how it came out.

When im outta work ill teach you about the first slave owner in america, how they were sold from africa from slave owners, how many black slave owners owned how many slaves in america, how slavery was common world wide until the white man abolished slavery. Ill hook you up later, in the mean time keep drinking that koolaid


I'm looking forward to this. Please make sure to include indentured servitude, what it was, and how it differed from the the way the west enslaved blacks once they were sold, or in some instances, kidnapped from Africa.


And as a black, no, I don't "wonder why 40% of the prison population is black" in a country where the prison industry is for profit, in many cases ran by the same kind of people that hide behind their perceived anonymity on the internet to promote their bigoted BS because they don't have the balls to step up.

I'm also looking forward to this. Additionally looking forward to just how far a anonymous internet warrior will go to use anecdotal stories about black people owning black people to justify the terribly racist very-white history of this country (and their own race issues).

"The white man abolished slavery". Said as if this deserves praise. Jesus dude. (i.e. you should thank me for stopping stabbing you over and over again).

I love the people who tell others to stop drinking koolaid when they themselves are completely delusional.

So your saying the truth is only on neo nazi forums? Because i dont involve my self with nazis, huh, weird. Go take your shot of fluoride for the day...🙄


I'm just saying that the same narrative you push can be found on neo-nazi boards.


I just push for people actually wanting to do better for themselves, to push themselves, to have integrity and take responsibility for their actions, to know where they stand today is a product of their decision in the past and NO ONE is to blame but your self, that its OK to fail, every body does from time to time. That's what I believe in, not a bunch of thugs acting like animals and blaming everybody else for what they do. I dont care what Nazi's push or the Black Panthers, this is America and people are free to express themselves and preach what they want so long they are not hurting anybody and im not talking about hurting feelings people have got to grow up and stop worrying about people who they dont know, they dont pay your bills and they do not effect your life directly but feelings, grow some thick skin. The moment we allow the government to silence people because they hurt your feelings is the day we lose our freedom of speech then religion then guns! The Nazi's were socialist (right wing germany before WWII) and the other party was communist (left wing Germany before WWII) The democratic party founded the KKK and Hillary Clinton was best buds of the head of the KKK, he was her mentor and best friend so she says. NO the parties NEVER flippy floppied!!!

Wow, your kidding me, you didn't know Africans sold their own kind to the white man back then? You didn't know it was a wealthy black man who brought his slaves over to the USA and introduced slavery? The sellers are just as guilty as the buyers, but hold on let me get this info and drop some knowledge for you...

This is some dangerous umm *stuff*.
This is going to come to a breaking point.
Between the internet and the "MSM" promoting and okaying this nonsense, it's going to escalate.

Maybe it's what the PTB want.

It's not what I want.

With the coming mid term elections and the 2020 elections, it will almost be a miracle if we can even get there.

The first legal slave owner in America was a tobacco farmer named Anthony Johnson
en.wikipedia.org...(colonist)

North Carolina's largest slave holder in 1860 was a black plantation owner named William Ellison
en.wikipedia.org...

American Indians owned THOUSANDS of slaves
en.wikipedia.org...
www.smithsonianmag.com...
notevenpast.org...

In 1830 there were 3,775 free black people who owned 12,740 black slaves
www.theroot.com...

Blacks were also allowed to own business, real estate, and hold jobs (some people like to think blacks were not allowed to own anything until the 1900's that's crap)

Brutal black on black slavery had already existed long before america for 1000's of years and still exists in Africa to this day
en.wikipedia.org...

Most slaves brought to America were sold by black people in Africa and white people ENDED chattel slavery during the civil war.

IDC what you think or if you hate this or like this, if it really bothers you then go to a library and check it out, do some real research.

No, The Dems can burn with the rest of them, I have stated more than once I am as much anti-left as I am anti-right, I am just pointing out this blatant ignorance when it comes to the argument that "Antifa is fascist" just because you don't like them

and all these Trump cultists who cry and whine about the "Left" calling them fascists and racists and "Deplorable" are the same hypocrites that cry and whine that "Antifa" is fascists and the "left" is fascist

I wonder how many threads you posted in during the "Hope and Change" years, calling dems, cultists for their "second coming". Chances are, none.

A lie. They're not fascist because they're violent. They're fascist because their very mission statement is to silence any support for the opposition by violence and intimidation.

I said openly supporting fascist organisations like antifa, is fascist. And it is. A political party openly supporting a brown-shirt group that uses violence to shut down support of opposition is most definately fascism. A political figurehead openly calling for harrassment of opposition party members in public places is most definately fascism. Approving, OPENLY approving of violence and intimidation of opposition supporters is most definately fascism.

Give it up man. Anyone who denies that the dnc and the 'left' today is not openly fascist, is fooling noone.



You cant argue with that one. we normally ignore him because he has been so badly debunked its almost comedic.

Correct, because I wasn't here, but During the "Hope and Change" years I said Obama can burn with the rest of them, I still say that, you seem not to understand when i say I am as much anti-left as I am anti-right I mean I have been, I have been an anarchist since a young age, this is not a "new thing" because of Trump

Slavery has never been a pleasant thing that's existed, but slavery has existed for 1000's of years before white man, white man didn't come along and make it worse. Africans themselves were responsible for being a part of it. This is where integrity and responsibility come along. Where's all the hate in the bahamas or mexico with the Spaniards? There is still slavery to this day in the world and in Africa. And most of, the people of TODAY have nothing to do with the people of 200 years ago. So this dead horse every body is beating is nothing but a skeleton now and nobody is wanting to move forward but instead to keep beating this very old dead horse. Congratulations, there are leaders in this country wanting to keep the hate alive and they are succeeding because people keep falling into that crap because they do know for a fact that "United we stand, divided we fall" so again, congrats, we will never be a strong free people nation with this attitude, we will further be enslaved and not even know it, down eachothers throats and killing, because politicians and stupid people is why!

IDC what you think or if you hate this or like this, if it really bothers you then go to a library and check it out, do some real research.



Let me quote what I said to you again in cased you missed it, because it looks like you're attempting to use irrelevant information to attempt to side step the issue:



m looking forward to this. Please make sure to include indentured servitude, what it was, and how it differed from the the way the west enslaved blacks once they were sold, or in some instances, kidnapped from Africa.



Notice this tidbit about Anthony Johnson:



When Anthony Johnson was released from servitude, he was legally recognized as a "free Negro." He developed a successful farm. In 1651 he owned 250 acres (100 ha), and the services of five indentured servants (four white and one black)




Johnson was captured in his native Angola by an enemy nation and sold to Arab slave traders. He was eventually sold as an indentured servant to a merchant working for the Virginia Company.[2]

He arrived in Virginia in 1621 aboard the James. The Virginia Muster (census) of 1624 lists his name as "Antonio not given," recorded as "a Negro" in the "notes" column.[3] There is some dispute among historians as to whether this was the Antonio later known as Anthony Johnson, as the census lists several "Antonios." This one is considered the most likely.[4]



More about Johnson:



n 1657, Johnson’s white neighbor, Edmund Scarborough, forged a letter in which Johnson acknowledged a debt. Johnson did not contest the case. Johnson was illiterate and could not have written the letter; nevertheless, the court awarded Scarborough 100 acres (40 ha) of Johnson’s land to pay off his alleged "debt".[7]

In this early period, free blacks enjoyed "relative equality" with the white community. About 20% of the free black Virginians owned their own homes. By 1665, however, racism was becoming more common.


Your claim of slaves being sold by blacks:



Systems of servitude and slavery were common in parts of Africa, as they were in much of the ancient world. In many African societies where slavery was prevalent, the enslaved people were not treated as chattel slaves and were given certain rights in a system similar to indentured servitude elsewhere in the world


Second paragraph of your source. Now we are right back to my original point, please tell us why blacks selling other blacks is relevant to a discussion about slavery when its clear that the west turned slavery into something else entirely:

Read it in it's entirety

Your type always forgo this critical distinction for some strange reason.

Please find me Alexander Thomas or a Samuell Sillen in Africa.
Please find me anywhere other than the west where science was used as a justification to treat people like sub humans.

The fact that blacks, who where used to indentured servants ( you know, still treating prisoners etc like people) sold their own, is moot, considering what those monsters in the US turned it into.

People use the word moot, and I do not believe they fully comprehend the definition. In any case, I didn't read your post. Sorry. I just saw the word "moot" and had to check to see if you actually knew what it's definition was.

And yes, any point that attempts to justify and or minimize slavery because blacks sold other blacks and fail to considered the difference between how it was implemented is



of little or no practical value, meaning, or relevance;


In other words, moot.

Oh my bad, because one slave is better then another type of slave and purchasing or trading a person in Africa was WAAAAAY different then purchasing or trading people in America, my bad. At least Africa was nice to its property right...
pffft

You wouldn't accept the truth if it smacked you in your mouth, your a victim everybody owes black people right? because NOBODY can compare to black people, not what Egyptians did to those slaves, not what the romans did to the slaves, the Persians, the native Americas north to south, the Mongolians, the Chinese and Japenese, or North Korean, or even the Jews through out the centuries or Holocaust, NOPE nothing can compare to the Atlantic slave trade ( You know, that thing where white people from Europe and America were actually trading and purchasing already black slaves from black slave owners...)
When are you guys going to stop beating that dead dead very dead horse? Oh thats right your great great great grand children will still be beating it because you will teach them to hate white peoples great great great children for something that happened hundreds of years ago... Thanks for continuing the hate to generations that had NOTHING to do with slavery! Pathetic

Keep it simple, Anthony Johnson was a slave made slave owner

"But still debatable". Don't forget that last little part. Selective editing will not win an argument.

ETA
From the first thing that comes up when typing definition of "moot" in Google.

"subject to debate, dispute, or uncertainty, and typically not admitting of a final decision."

It's that last part that really hits it home.
