  1. Do you mean North America? Because most of the slaves that crossed the Atlantic went to Spanish and Portuguese South America. There were far more revolts there . Alexandria Ocasio Cortez of Spanish decent should know all about it.

  2. I would like the movement black matters try to help against those school of tortures, that keep hundreds of black boys in slavery and abuse, that are going on in Nigeria and other parts of africa 🙁 police has captured some but they believe there are a slot of those remaining

  3. Keep dancing with your mouth open following a woman way
    FIGHT FOR NOTHING HAVE NOTHING,,,FIGHT FOR SOMETHING HAVE SOMETHING
    EVERY BODY CAN'T LIVE THIS LIFE, TIME TO SACRIFICE AND DIE
    AND SACRIFICE FOR YOURSELF AND OTHERS (ANCESTORS)DID
    you are dead anyway no matter how careful you are in life AND THE BIGOTS INBREDS PLOT AND KILL AND KILL UNTIL THEY GET TO YOU

  4. Just let me thinking…
    In Europe we do memorials of history too. In Spain we recreate battles against the romans. Italians do the same against the french. The French agains the germans and so on.
    Historical displays are not a problem for us because is the past and also because you dont see many italian people in Spain nor french people in Italy and even if they are there they know its not their country, not their rules.

    USA has the same ethnic mixing in all the states (I'm not saying same proportion) and mainly the same laws.
    What should be a reason for unity becomes also a reason for unrest when commemorating the past

  5. Black people are teaching white people how to rebel against oppression and slavery. Black people may be the salvation of white people. We are one race regardless of our color, an ocean of force fighting for freedom…

  6. i am Peter Malamah-Thomas Brown, my forefather John Henry Malamah Thomas 8 times freetown mayor A self made Merchant Magnate classed as one of the great men to build sierra leone from the ground up, SON OF AKU RECAPTIVE SLAVES,my forefather proved against all odds African men can make it from the gutter to a millionaire. so proud of my routes.
