    Slavery has occurred in many forms throughout the world, but the Atlantic slave trade -- which forcibly brought more than 10 million Africans to the Americas -- stands out for both its global scale and its lasting legacy.

    G biased media that ignores the fact that slavery is the norm in Africa and that slaves in the western hemisphere were treated vastly better than in Africa or Mid East.
    Will Ted be doing any media pieces on how slavery is alive and well in Africa and the Middle East and Asia?
    Or are they simply trying to stoke racial animosity?

    Another case of Christians picking and choosing what Biblical "laws" they were apt to follow and which they chose to ignore. While their ignorance is mind boggling as their holy book gives them instructions about they slaves the own. Rules and regulations because slaves as well as wives were simply put, property.

    The Africans viewed the people they sold to the Europeans as the Israelite tribes that were hiding in their land.They were coming out of Israel due to persecution from the Romans. They traded the Hebrew Israelites to the Europeans and they went in diverse lands where tongues they did not know, there they were sold as bondsmen and bonds women, yoke's of iron was placed upon their necks(Deuteronomy 28) There they remained in captivity to this day and it will remain to be this way until the times of the Gentiles end.

    The Irish we're depicted as apes well into the late 19thC and v.early 20th. We were shipped to America in vessels euphemistically called "Coffin Ships", due to the abysmal conditions aboard and the large amount of deaths from contagious disease's. Most weren't allowed above decks for the entire journey and were even used as ballast. The Irish have a grim history, too many are unaware of outside Ireland. There are still peasants in the carribean, to this day, who speak with early 18thC Irish dialects and look like Paddy down the pub!! Look it up. Edit: And we're still a colonised country and people.

    Same bull$hit in the textbooks LEAVING OUT the fact that these were Hebrews, not Africans. That’s why they called them Negroes instead of Africans when they were sold. The Bible starting from Deuteronomy 28:68 describes the trade & reads like a history book. Africans sold Hebrews, not other Africans. After Moses led his people out of captivity they broke the laws of God & the curses are how you identify them.

    It all boils down to this: MONEY. Money = power. Money = goods. Money influences people's decisions. Even people's morals and ethics. Funny how nothing was mentioned about the Arabs buying slaves. Nor the history of slavery in the Middle East. And others, not just Africans were enslaved. Slavery existed long before the "New World" was "found".
    But then, if you really want to study slavery, it will take a lot longer than this video ran.
    OH, white men did not go into the interior of Africa.
