Their enslaved ancestors were smuggled into Alabama in 1860, long after the United States had banned the import of slaves. The smugglers burned the ship to hide their crime, and for more than 150 years, the ships remains lay on the bottom of the Mobile River. The community of Africatown, founded by slaves brought by the Clotilda, grew up nearby.

I dont understand why "black" folks like this dont just go back to Africa if they are so fascinated with "rediscovering" their roots? If you know for certain that you are a descendant of a particular group FROM Africa and that the U.S is not and never was a place for "Africans" then why continue to live in squalor in the U.S? This is a propaganda piece designed to further push the notion that "African Americans" are western Africans! For the record "BLACKS" were all over the earth including EUROPE. Dont fall for the hype trace your roots thoroughly and know for certain who your ppl are! Some "blacks" are "African" and others are not!

"Victimized", huh? And we all know that if anyone has any reputation for strictly avoiding victimizing people, it's blacks.

Blacks were born to be slaves. Even the blacks themselves know this. Slaves first began with blacks enslaving their own. strong upper body strength and stupid in the brain department make excellent manual laborers, provided they are well supervised. A whip helps.

What's equally sad is it was probably 90% chance they were sold by other Africans to that ship

Bring the ship up and put it on display. Have a model next to it that shows it in its original condition. If there is a ship's manifest put it on display. If you can identify the descendants of the people enslaved, see if you can tie them back to their homeland, their African tribe, their African village. If possible connect these descendants with their African relatives. Let's put Africa town on the map. Celebrate the survival of those enslaved.

HOW DO WE TALK TO THE real GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB?



Current events in the Heavens above, fAlse pRophets, the current events on the

Earth, the lack of care from our officials, and apocalyptic weather events tell

us the time is nigh for the return of our God and Savior, Yoshua, who is Jesus

Christ... !!!


THERE IS SO little TIME left for us to ask HIM to come into our

hearts........


Just find a quiet place...
in your room,
in your closet,
in your
field,
on your bike,
while walking
or
maybe the nearest outdoor area bench...



and Earnestly with Sincerity talk to HIM...
in your mind
or
aloud...


verbalize your honest feelings
and
try not to be afraid.


SAY to HIM
that you don't know what you are doing exactly...


say to HIM
that you feel lost...


say to HIM

that you've never done this before
and
to please help you to Understand...


Ask
HIM
to guide you through this Moment
and
all moments from this Day forward,


and
to take charge of your life...


Ask HIM
if HE is real for you,


to please show
you somehow...


THEN say to HIM
that you are sorry for living in a manner that you should not have ...if you have.


or...
Say to HIM you're sorry for taking so long to try and get to Know HIM ...






THAT'S IT REALLY!!!!!!!
HAVE FAITH
AND

BELIEVE HE DIED FOR YOU


AND THROUGH HIS DEATH ...
YOU LIVE!


and
IF EVER YOU
STAND BEFORE THE FATHER AND HE ASK OF YOU...


"WHY SHOULD I LET YOU INTO HEAVEN?"
...you humbly say, "because of Jesus, Your Sons sacrifice"


and say
"I can never be good enough, that is why HE, JESUS, had to die for me".


May God bless you to be one of His :)
