No wonder the relationship is strained between us, to say it was just a business deal, while agents captured slaves is simply ridiculous :facepalm: How dare you!






'My Nigerian great-grandfather sold slaves'



Nigerian journalist and novelist Adaobi Tricia Nwaubani writes that one of her ancestors sold slaves, but argues that he should not be judged by today's standards or values.
My great-grandfather, Nwaubani Ogogo Oriaku, was what I prefer to call a businessman, from the Igbo ethnic group of south-eastern Nigeria. He dealt in a number of goods, including tobacco and palm produce. He also sold human beings.
"He had agents who captured slaves from different places and brought them to him," my father told me.

yeah and........ are we suppose to blame Nigerians for being in the god forsaken country or any Afrakans for that matter! No!! What choices did they have, them or us! When you are dealing with devils, you have to survive! I blame them not! The blame goes to the devils that came to our continent did every evil act imaginable, had guns, and weapons, our Ancestors did not have, were going to enslave us no matter whether we sold each other or not! So stop the blame game! Always be leary what BBC put out! The british always take the blame away them! Just give every colony you murdered our people in their raparations! We are on to you! We woke now! Consider to source people!

There is always a choice.

There is always a choice.
Really, so let me get this straight, they kill and rape your mother and daughter and front of you and threaten to do the same to the whole village, or you turn over to them your prisoners of war!? Comon now! Read, "Of Water and Spirit" by Maladome Some! The elders looked at them french devils jesuits when they arrived to their village, and knew right away, some of their children would have to be sacrificed, because they knew they were killers! I will never blame Afrakans on the continent for what happened to us! They didn't build the ships, the akanasis did! I guess you would have stood in front of the devils and said "take me instead" Ya right! Black people need to let this go, there was no choice! Let's focus on or reall enemies, and move onward and upward with each other! Don't listen to the kneegrows like Skip "the facts" Gates at Harvard, or any other fool the devils put out there to blame Afrakans! Wake up now, It's time! By the way, many of those prisoners came from the Eastern part of Africa who had escaped the onslaught of the Arabs, only to be sold to the their devil relatives! Our Ancestors didn't have a chance either way! We trusted and believed these new different looking people only to be deceived, because we were put on the greatest continent in the world and we are kind people! Let us learn who our real hateful enemies are from here on out!

Nice write up, Clyde.

This confirms that you are truly apart of the 2% of African Americans who are not numbered amongst the 98% of us who were already here:

"The First Americans Were Africans" by Dr. David Imhotep

"The First Americans Were Africans, Revisited" by Dr. David Imhotep

"Black History In A Nutshell" by Allen D. Z. Shabazz

"They Came Before Columbus" by Dr. Ivan Van Sertima
