    America made money off of us then, and still is. Thanks for the information Bro. oldsoul.

    Bro. James...reparations paid to victims of holocausts...all except African Americans.

    According to Ta-Nihesi Coates, Black Americans deserve even more than repayment for slavery in a sweeping 2014 article, “The Case for Reparations.”

    If not reparations, then I would advocate that AAs shouldn't have to pay state or federal taxes, like Native Americans.

    add to that Duke University and as it stated, many more...
    Education or mis-education was designed under the law of chattel slavery and after they figured out how to mis-educate us, then they changed the law to Separation of Church and State and kept chattel slavery law for another 89 years...
    Then they outlawed the Bible once again under the Federal law...

    First the Bible was outlawed under chattel slavery and then after 100s of years of preaching lies and mis-interpreting ancient scripts,
    then they outlawed it under the Separation of Church and State. They benefit from our ignorance.

    Knowledge is Power.

    So, after watching the video and absorbing all of its content, again, what are AAs prepared to do about it?

    What a lot of people don't know about the Poor People's Campaign, organized by Dr. King and the SCLC, is this:

    The Poor People’s Campaign was a multiracial effort—including African-Americans, whites, Mexican-Americans, Puerto Ricans, and Native Americans—aimed at alleviating poverty regardless of race.

    It's been said, it was this that was the reason why Dr. King was assassinated. The power elite . . . learned how to maintain their wealth at any cost. But . . . could such a movement be effective today?
