    A GROUP OF
    FOUR
    GATHERED
    BEHIND
    CLOSED
    DOORS
    IN A
    SMOKE-FILLED
    ROOM
    THEY SPOKE
    OF
    DEATH
    AND
    DESIGNED
    THE DOOM
    OF ANOTHER

    SOON AFTER...
    A BASTARD
    WAS SENT
    BY THE MASTERS
    UNDER
    COVER
    OF KINDNESS
    THE VICTIM
    WAS BLINDED
    ATTACKED FROM
    THE BACK
    DISPATCHED
    TO THE
    BLACK

    ..AND LAYS DYING
    EVEN
    TO THIS DAY.



    THE TIME: THE 16TH CENTURY

    THE "GROUP OF FOUR" : the countries of ENGLAND FRANCE GERMANY AND SPAIN

    THE WEAPON OF CHOICE : THE TRIANGLE TRADE (RUM, MOLASSES, AND SLAVES)

    THE VICTIM: EVERY MAN, WOMEN, CHILD OF COLOR CAUGHT SLIPPIN' ON THE AFRICAN CONTINENT.

    this was Tight!!!

    Teach me!!! I am truly feelings this...and words were so true!!! So real... But I didn't know that Spain or England traded African's as slaves. If i'm not mistaken I thought they had Indentard Servants...I think there is grave difference between that and being a slave. And didn't Spain band slaving trading in their part of the seas well you may be right about that because I don't think they banned slave trading until the 17 century. I could be wrong though...I haven't read up on this stuff years.

    But once again...thank you for blessing me with your knowledge!!!!
