  1. What's up with the hamite stuff? Negroes aren't even African. Africa is man made up name, it's the land of Eden from the bible. The garden may be gone, but, the land of Eden is still there. Slavery's arrival are they serious? No, kidnapping, human trafficking and human criminality is involved. Not devoid of human participation.

  2. Imagine the pain they would feel going back to pre fire days.

  3. If we are forced to forget slavery then we must forget the so called Holocaust..

  7. Who cares, every group in history has been enslaved. Just be grateful Europeans abolished it.

  8. I am demanding reparations for the ancestors I lost in the Civil War. As a Yankee we were fighting to free slaves. As a Republican, my party was initiated for the sole purpose of abolishing slavery. Once again I demand reparations for the pain and suffering my family endured trying to free the slaves.

  10. It's a sad sign of weakness when you cannot admit when something is wrong learn to have empathy for those that have been hurt # scholarships reparations casinos grants many ways to fix and make up for what was done even if it wasn't done by you

  13. Black people are dumb…We're not descendants of africans, we are descendants of hebrews slaves that died. Damn..learn real history. Stop being STUPID IN 2019


  15. Ahhhh, poor, poor babies. We should throw a party for the desolate souls who feel so lost without a slave culture to define them. It should be a federal holiday. I could use another day off.

  16. Never forget the struggle!

    Very telling how whites hate to be reminded of the crimes they commit like slavery, Trail of Tears, the holocaust, Japanese internment camps, segregation…

    But they insist:
    9/11 – Never Forget
    Remember the Alamo
    Confederate Flags still fly
    Celebrate the 4th of July.

    Very telling.

  17. They would have to be 154 years old to have experienced slavery. Nevertheless the newsmedia will keep the hatred alive.

  18. More blacks (and others) were owned as slaves by whites than the way around.

  19. Lots of triggered Reich-wingers here. It's absurd how they try to stop people from talking about the dark history of this country by bringing up BS arguments like "you're race baiting" and "Africans owned slaves too".

  20. Slavery still exists in the US. People are slaves to corporations and spying agencies now.

  21. Yes! Just as nobody expects the Holocaust and its devastating effects to just "go away"…slavery and its devastating effects isn't going away either. This country has to stop trying to sweep it under the rug!

  22. One of the reasons African immigrants to the United States, despise black Americans is their reliance on the narrative of slavery to excuse their failures. Ask any African immigrant, they do not dwell on the issue of slavery, they only dwell on getting ahead for themselves and their families.

  23. The media will never let these horrible things that man has done rest. We will never get past the black and white , and the slavery thing.
    I'm not in no way bashing history for no one, that's what history class is for.
    I feel for some people who struggle to get past the sorted history of our planet.
    Why can't the media just stick to the news and let history for the teachers?
    This has been a rant brought to you from the sick and fed up network channel 123abc .

  24. Black people started black slavery.
    White people ended black slavery.
    ……in America at least, blacks still enslaving blacks in modern day Africa ๐Ÿ‘€

    …interesting how so many ppl forget basic high school history๐Ÿ™„

  25. Jesus these comments are nasty.. they're not hurting anyone

  26. I don't know what that crazy dance is but we certainly don't dance that way here in the mother land

  27. Must not forget the slavery .yes it is painful memory, yes it is a ancient scar but it hasnโ€™t healed by now.never forget SLAVERY.

  28. Deuteronomy 28:48
    [48]Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the LORD shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.

  29. What is so special about these slaves ? Always been slaves always will be ,got them today ,slick of hearing about this crowd never stop moaning about it and shoving it down people's throats , in U.K. in same times people were treated worst than they ever were , their own people sold them for profit ,

  30. Who gives a fuck about the past if you want to live in the past then go back to where it started and get the he'll out of our country

  31. Meanwhile slavery exists across the world, but people still dwell on history. We'll cherry pick the smallest slave trade in history to suit our agenda. Black folks have white ancestors, white families have black ancestors. Let's poke our fingers and pretend we knew what really happened. Stop the divide and conquer, and come together.

  32. Bet none of them are African. we have been here how long?! Media still dividing up the people.

  33. Everyone do realise that slavary is still going on right? And blacks aren't the only slaves, during Rome times being a slave was like having a contracted job, u know when black were to bad quality to be slaves ๐Ÿ˜‚. Wonder if u figured your being in debt and in a contract is modern day slavary taken from a roman idea, the fun part u get payed in paper money instead of something real as gold

  34. ๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค

  35. Reading these comments and SMH! It really easy to say get over it when your race hasnt been oppressed or dealt with genocide…….but hey everyone is entitled to their opinion and you know what they say about opinions.

  36. Here we go again! Keep hate alive! Make sure you tell them their OWN PEOPLE SOLD THEM! Fuck ABC!

  37. Africans sold their own people, they still do

  38. White people dont owe y anything quit acting like it

  39. I love the AA history books!! Our famous poets orators writers Fredrick Douglas Langston hughes Sammy Davis Harriet Tubman Ella baker James baldwin!! Ancestors were trying to escape the plantation running through swamps being chased by bloodhounds! Coming together singing sings!! Creating their own recipes and passing it down!!! Created jazz music! Slaves did folk spirituals!!! Rich history! Beautiful history!!

  40. Blame the jEWWs, they profited on both sides and still do to this day, they own the media and government that still push this crap.
    Victimization can be used as a great weapon..
    Also works well for mind control.
    So get control of your mind or some jew will.
    On a side note, where would blacks in America be today had jude slavery never taken place, in some mud huts bare foot and butt naked with bones in your nose. Came along way in a short time, can't deny that fact.

  41. Yea but black people are racist towards each other ๐Ÿ™„

  42. This preoccupation with race defies reason.What about those who suffer from human trafficking right now?
