    Joel 3:1-3
    3 For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem,
    2 I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.

    3 And they have cast lots for my people; and have given a boy for an harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they might drink.

    Galatians 4:26
    but the Jerusalem above is free, which is the mother of us all.

  6. This was awesome, i wished it could be longer.

  7. The truth is her ancesters where probley in Portugal after fleeing from other countries like France England, as at that time they were offered security for a price. The Pope had brought out the Dum Divesas that if the Hebrews did not christion their children they would be murdered or expelled into Africa or St Kitts and so on. Queen Isabella had the black Hebrews enslaved and millions went to the Americas. So Africans were not enslaving their own people they were enslaving the Israelites to start of the 400 year old curse from the Creator, he had put us in slavery in Egypt and Babylon but we did not listen. Now the curse is littery in the last days and Israel is waking up to who we really are. Deuteronomy 28.    Wake up the truth is coming out.

  8. Thank you. ❤️😢❤️

  9. Thank you for sharing 🙏🏼

  10. Cnbc you are so dispicable low down and dirty. I'd think that black folk would be pleased that they're here today as a direct result of such a horrible history , meaning that there isn't much opportunity in Africa , America today is heaven on earth comparatively.

  11. In my view, Wanda Tucker and the rest of the Tuckers descended from Angolans Anthony and Isabella should select Bantu Angolan names and drop their slave names. This act would truly honor their ancestors since know the geo-African region in which they originated.

  12. Deuteronomy 28:68 a fulfilled prophecy of the Transatlantic Slave Trade. Description of Jesus Christ written in Revelation 1:15. Jesus Christ was from the tribe of Judah; also King Solomon was from the tribe of Judah, here's a description of King Solomon: Song of Solomon 1:5 I am black, but comely, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, as the tents of Kedar, as the curtains of Solomon. | A source outside of the Holy Bible stating Negroes (Blacks) are not Africans: "HAM (Heb. hām, perhaps hot) The youngest son of Noah, born probably about ninety-six years before the Flood, and one of the eight persons to live through the Flood. He became the progenitor of the dark races—not the Negroes, but the Egyptians, Ethiopians, Libyans, and Canaanites" (Gen.10.6-Gen.10.20) (Zondervan Bible Dictionary). | So called Blacks are a portion of the children of Israel. | John 4:24 & Acts 17:30

  13. I enjoy seeing the stupidity playing out in the comment section……white people trying to distance themselves from SLAVERY is the dumbest thing you could attempt. History of Slavery is well documented……plenty books and online sources that gives you an insight into slavery 400 years ago!

  14. Note, there is no mention of the Arab slave traders who had a major part in the slave trade. White, black, didn't matter, they captured and sold people into slaves, oar slaves etc. West Africa slave capture and transportion was a worldbwide industry. How about hundreds of thousands indentured (slaves) sent to the US south. They were cheaper to buy than Africans and therefore treated worse than expensive Africans. The disease of slavery infected many peoples around the world. To reduce it to a black/white thing is to mislead people. Americans focus on only on what was going on in their country and completely ignore the facts of the rest of the world was fully engaged in slavery.
    . e.g. The Pacific North Western native tribes all had slaves but its not politically correct to discuss that fact in this time. It's a shame to hear the whole subject of race being reduced to a Southern US state only and make it a race thing.
    They didn't call the tens of thousands of white Brits deported to Australia to work as sentenced crimnals to work as "slaves".
    It was where the world was at during the past ten thousand years. If it wasn't for the Quakers it may have taken another hundred years to end the horror of slavery in the Western world.

  15. The first legally recognized slave owner in the USA was a black man from Angola named Anthony Johnson.

  16. Be careful Wanda; People in today's society do not like to hear the truth. The waring tribes in Africa sold opposition prisoners to the Dutch merely for pigs. THE WORST TRUTH: Most of the slaves that were purchased would have been killed if they weren't sold off, so…in a way they're fortunate.

  17. There is still slavery in Libya why doesn't she expose that? Most white Europeans came in the 1900s and never owned slaves. I guess the 500,000 white people who died in the civil war did it in vein. Only 1% of the population owned slaves. Stop this racist propaganda to make the black kids angry. STOP IT

  18. First slave owners in the USA were black …aand africans Sold their own into slavery

  19. Good and bad, right and wrong, hate and love we are the gods that are allowed to choose ☮
