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.

How Argentina Killed Millions of Her African Population To Become A Purely Caucasian Nation

This has happened wherever YT has gone…

The history of the world can never be told completely without giving concise and credible accounts of slavery of Africans. Over 50 million Africans were taken into slavery in America and Europe, while over 12.5 million were taken into slavery in the Arab world.

Of the over 50 million that survived the “middle passage” on ships to America and Europe, tens of millions of them found themselves in Brazil. Today, it is a known fact that roughly half of Brazil can trace their lineage directly to Africa. Continue reading

There are many organizations and individuals who have spent decades of their existence, and lives, advocating for reparations to be given to the descendants of enslaved Africans in America, during the more than 500 years Black people have spent living in this country and subjected to physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, educational, chemical and medical abuse and mistreatment.
