Haile Selassie: The Self-Proclaimed 'Caucasian' Who Africans Mistook For A Black Saviour

I had heard things before along these lines but never read anything to confirm or deny any of it…

Haile Selassie described himself as a Caucasian, was not quick to abolish slavery and was the West’s ‘moderate’ dictator of choice. As Marcus Garvey said, the Emperor was just an ordinary man. Continue reading

Story of Ghanaian Slave Woman Who Led the Biggest Slave Revolt in The West Indies In 1733


There are tons of stories like this but u can’t expect YT to teach you about them…

When slavery is discussed in the media and is taught in schools, very little is mentioned of the strong and fierce resistance which Africans put up against the slavers and their accomplices. The bravery of African ancestors is often swept under the rug so that the new and coming generations would have a picture of weak and defeated ancestors. Continue reading

After escaping a slave ship in the 1700s, this African chief became Florida’s most-feared pirate

Reminds me to go finish Freedom Cry….

He has been described as Florida’s most renowned black pirate who used the island of Elliott Key, and other hiding places along the Southeast Florida coast to conduct raids on unsuspected ships and villages.

Black Caesar became notable during the “golden age” of piracy, that is, in the late 1600s and early 1700s, when pirate ships were one of the few places black men could earn power and wealth. Continue reading

When the Slave Traders Were African

Of course coming from the Wall Street Journal, there is propaganda and YT passing the blame but shit is real…

This August marked 400 years since the first documented enslaved Africans arrived in the U.S. In 1619, a ship reached the Jamestown settlement in the colony of Virginia, carrying “some 20 and odd Negroes” who were kidnapped from their villages in present-day Angola. The anniversary coincides with a controversial debate in the U.S. about whether the country owes reparations to the descendants of slaves as compensation for centuries of injustice and inequality. It is a moment for posing questions of historic guilt and responsibility.

How England’s first slave trader lured Africans on his ‘Jesus’ ship and sold them into slavery

Hmmm..

Although the English, later on, became notable African enslavers, the trade has its origins in the bosom of the Portuguese and Spanish.

The historical record holds that in 1502, Juan de Córdoba of Seville became the first merchant to send an African slave to the New World. Since it was only in its early stages, merchants were allowed by the Spanish authorities to sell only one to three enslaved Africans. Continue reading

The Companies Built On The Backs Of Our Enslaved Ancestors | PushBlack Now

FYI

Tiffany & Co.

Iconic high-end jewelry retailer Tiffany & Co. would have never been built into an empire
if its founder, Charles Tiffany, hadn’t made his fortune in the 1800s in the cotton
industry, built on the backs of enslaved people.

New York Life

Like Aetna and many other insurance companies, New York Life got its start by selling life
insurance for enslaved people to their owners – thus directly profiting off the slave trade.

JP Morgan Chase

Now one of the largest banks in America, JP Morgan Chase literally owned slaves,
because it accepted them as collateral and took ownership in the case of default.

In 2005, Chase apologized and offered $5 million in scholarships to Black students as
reparations – but given the bank makes almost $10 BILLION a year in profit, the gesture
is insulting.

CSX Transportation

One of the largest railroad corporations in the Southeast and Eastern U.S., CSX’s railroad
tracks were built by slave labor – as were most railroad tracks throughout America.

USA Today

Countless newspaper brands still publishing today, like USA Today, once published ads
for the buying and selling of slaves, which were a huge portion of the newspapers’
profits.
