This video pretty much speaks for itself.  It shows some of the biggest slave owners in America. It shows how America was built from the blood,sweat and tears of black people.  And they wonder why many of us are still in poverty.  What would you expect??  You work for hundreds of years with NO payment. Reparations should have been paid a long time ago.

    • Ys it’s hard to look at sometimes. But the truth must be known. We must acknowledge the evil we are up against. And I don’t think they’ve changed one bit. Although they try to tell us they have.

  1. It’s funny all the time they said,Black people are lazy,criminals,
    they never contributed anything to society,white people have built America! Really? WTF! The most lazy people in this world are “Whites!”
    They never contributed anything so important to this society! Only things they contribuited were massive genocides of entire civilizations!
    The things that make us different and better than them, we have a psychological force that they will never have,imagine if the things were the other way, you believe me, if they were slaves they would not be surviving today! You know why? Because they are weak!

  2. So many of us are still branded – with their surnames. Not such a bad thing if the name used with this list leads one to reveal specific things about our ancestors and their actual enslavers/owners. At least black folks named Jenkins, Brown, and Robinson know that at some point in history, the ancestors could be traced back to Mississippi on one of these plantation farms. Thank you so much for posting KP.

    • That’s very true Sunshine. We still have their surnames. It’s a sad reminder that we were once the property of these evil bastards. It’s an unsettling truth. I’m glad you found it informative.
