    Wow! very interesting and informative vid sister amnat, it goes to show that benin which the white HIStorians like to use an example of "cooperation" heavily in the slave trade, for wealth, was really not as they advertise to the blind.

    These sisters mentioned something very interesting about the entrenched perimeter around the kindom interiors, that were used to thwart invaders, it shows that we resisted the slave trade heavily, and these devils manipulated and conjured up more tricks, to obtain slaves, yet even then the slaves that were obtained were NOT slaves beforehand, they were criminals or others that had committed crimes of murder or assaults on children, which is tantamount to death, so these were the ones the whites went after, because they would not and were not given many or as some 'friendly" exchange program or something as these whites like to falsely paint!

    Thanks for this video, i have heard about this before, but never heard it from the mouths of our people, to shut down the lies and half-truths!

    Thank you very much because most of the time they show us africans who said "oh yes we did it,we sold our own people".These sisters said something that is fundamental:initially there were resistances.The white man make us believe that he was hanging around africa with his boat and that africans was waiting in the beaches with slaves,smh...The white man knew what he was doing... In fact the problem is that the power struggle was not in the favor of africans due to european guns,so some africans were forced to make wicked deal to save their people;some of the so called kings who sold us were puppet created by the beast as it is today with these traitors who ruled most so called african nations.

    :toast:

    Exactly Brother, and if you read Walter Rodney's "How Europe Underdeveloped Africa", he explains that very fact, in how these beasts used their barbaric weaponry and cornered the original and natural way of life of africans and our chiefs, and so forth, and crushed the agricultural, economic, social, and political progression and evolvement, and so the kingdoms had to rely on obtaining prisoners to exchange.....the beast thought this up in order to obtain slaves to do the labor they knew they needed in the amerikkka's for which they were stealing at the same moment.....smh....this is a wicked serpent walkin on two legs that we're dealing with, and its nature is to destruct others and progress, but they use artificial creations such as religion,and capitalism to back up their wicked mentality and actions.

    Essentially they used a BIBLE,DECEIT, AND WEAPONS to steal others HUE-MANITY and CIVILIZATION.....thats why they're termed the devil, nothin superior at all about an artificial mutated cave man, just a wicked unnatural mindstate!

    Peace you right my brother this is a wicked serpent.We can take the same example with the Kongo Kingdom:Even though the King of this kingdom converted to Christianity,thus converted his subjects to the religion the Portuguese have started to capture people,when the King complained about this they tried to kill him and finally they overthrew him and put in place a puppet.I got a lot infos on this particular subject but in French,i will try to find some stuffs in English.
    This country called Portugal has done so many damage to our people,we often sleep often,these people will pay a high price for what they done to our motherland!

    Brother Seneb
    Thank You very much for bring forward the CHRONOLOGY OF KONGO PEOPLE

    It is truthful. [ Rely ( To trust; depend; confide; repose ) I On ] relig I ON...has been the demise of Africa.

    Upon asking the definition of rely. The source gave me as alternatives. Define religion. is this not what religion is. something relied upon to depend on and repose? Repose the Sprit. Calm down. Only then can one be overtaken and controlled.

    No one should ever be reposed. Controlled and collected to the degree that they give the will and right to freedoms.

    Freedom to choose to not choose. The choice always being theirs.

    DO not
    Africa at this time in the CONGO and BEYOND. Is waiting on our intent
    Today as with days past. They are waiting on our new gathered strengths to help. Help free ourselves by helping free ( them ) our roots.

    The break up of Africa was intentional. It had to be it was decided. The nation had to be broken and divided among the nations whom gathered to steal its wealth and resources.

    This division was mapped out and categorized in a book written by Frederick K. L. Schuman
    a professor of Political Science in 1937 which is contained in the second edition of
    " International Politics. "

    America took slaves and many more were brought to America by British and others as cargo for sale. If accountability is to be placed each one these nations listed must be held.
