Anyone who actually knows the history of Slavery, and especially Slavery in Africa, would have to admit that the “20 and odd” Angolans (“kidnapped by the Portuguese”) who arrived on August 20, 1619 in the ‘British colony of Virginia and are then bought by English colonists‘ were some of the most fortunate ‘indentured servants‘ (no slave laws at that time) in the history of Slavery, and Ditto on the – especially Slavery in Africa. Indentured servitude lasted longer than Slavery in Colonial America/United States ‘n was in use as late as 1917.
1619 – 1807
Looks like only 388,747 or so African slaves arrived in Colonial America/United States between August 20, 1619 and the Act Prohibiting Importation of Slaves of 1807. Here’s the rough Timeline that I am using:
The American Revolutionary War (April 19, 1775 – September 3, 1783) also happened during that time, i.e., ‘the war that secured the independence of the United States‘. Colonial Americans sought freedom ‘n won it!
1861 – 1865
Just 78-years after the American Revolutionary War the American Civil War (April 12, 1861 – May 26, 1865) was fought.
The central cause of the war was the dispute over whether slavery would be permitted to expand into the western territories, leading to more slave states, or be prevented from doing so, which was widely believed would place slavery on a course of ultimate extinction.
Decades of political controversy over slavery were brought to a head by the victory in the 1860 U.S. presidential election of Abraham Lincoln, who opposed slavery’s expansion into the western territories. An initial seven southern slave states responded to Lincoln’s victory by seceding from the United States and, in February 1861, forming the Confederacy.
The abolition of slavery became a war goal on January 1, 1863, when Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, which declared all slaves in states in rebellion to be free, applying to more than 3.5 million of the 4 million enslaved people in the country. Former slaves who escaped from plantations or were liberated by the Union Army were recruited into the United States Colored Troops regiments of the Union Army.
A wave of Confederate surrenders followed. On April 14, just five days after Lee’s surrender, Lincoln was assassinated.
Fortunate Slaves indeed! What other group of Slaves, in the history of Slavery, had over half the country fight for their freedom?
From 388,747 to 4,000,000
The imported 388,747 African slaves numbers had grown to some 4,000,000 Africans by the end of the American Civil War. Fortunate *FORMER* Slaves indeed!
All African male slaves who were sent along the Arab-Islam Trade routes to the East were castrated immediately, so their numbers never grew. Fortunate American Descendants of African Slaves indeed!
Arab-Islam Slave Trade
It has always puzzled me as to why so many black Americans support Islam. Arab-Islam Slavery has been going on since around 650 CE, and continues in some Muslim nations today.
Hard to believe the Democratic party’s black Overseers & Drivers (the likes of Jeremiah Wright, Fard Muhammad, Elijah Muhammad, Louis Farrakhan, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Keith Ellison, etc.) haven’t erased Dr. John Henrik Clarke from history.

ARABs TRADED 30 – 40 MILLION AFRICAN SLAVES:
(NOTE: Just noticed that many YouTube videos have become “unavailable” on the old Arab-Islam Slave Trade page at my Political ‘Hub‘, so I just copied and saved those two old Dr. Clarke’s videos. In Windows 11 I can hit Windows key + G and record my screen. Tip: pause the video first ‘n open it to Full Screen ‘n then start recording.)
Reparations or pay a ‘Fortuitous‘ Tax?
My great grandmother was raped ‘n then murdered by a black man, after he had murdered my great grandfather first. Should the descendants of that black man owe me financial reparations? Should they do time in prison to repay me for what their ancestor did to my great grandparents? (Note: Not a true story...)
I have grown tired of watching the Democratic party using black Americans as nothing more than their Chattel to pump out votes instead of milk or eggs.
I have grown tired of the Democratic party ‘n their MSM puppets ‘n their black Overseers & Drivers purposely keeping black Americans down.
No American takes more abuse from other Americans than black American Conservatives. The Democratic party ‘n their MSM puppets ‘n their black Overseers & Drivers do everything possible to destroy the black American Conservative.
Candace Owens is a black American Conservative and she continually brushes aside any attack from the Democratic party ‘n American Progressives…leaving them speechless.
