  1. AFRICA FOR THE AFRICANS, ASIA FOR THE ASIANS, WHITE COUNTRIES FOR EVERYONE!
    Anti-racists tell us there's a race problem in ALL White countries that can only be solved by bringing in masses of non-Whites.
    They have no problem with all-Black countries or all-Asian countries.
    Only White people must become minorities in their own lands.
    Under international law, that is genocide, but anti-racists call it "diversity."
    Diversity means chasing down the last White person.
    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

  2. And without centuries of slave labor, the US would have never, or taken much longer, to move from a lowly populated, poor, colonized backwater of the UK to an independent global super power. The country/economy was built on the backs of slave labor, despite what government approved history texts told you in school.

  3. A.D.O.S BLACK PEOPLE were here since 1619 before this country was called AmeriKkka 1776 and fought in every war…Pay what you owe AmeriKkka!

  4. America is becoming a white capitalist state as white people payed more than colored citizens and limit job occupation to the white and use immigration laws as an excuse for even against legal immigrants

  5. Google 1924 Democrat National Convention in New York city. It was called the Klanbake. Every democrat politician was wearing Klan robes. The KKK was the democrat party, that's been replaced by ANTIFA, another anti American terrorist organization.
    The democrat party is the party of prejudice. Prejudice against Jews or anti semitism is seen everyday from the democrat party.

  6. Not even 8 minutes for this important and complex history with how it relates to current racial divides? You can do better MSNBC.

  7. I think the wealth gap is poor and wealthy American. not so much black and white. I know plenty of white people who feel the same way as unhappy people of any color.

  8. Yep and who can you blame for this? Nathan Bedford Forrest ? Or the current democrats. Why? Guess who the members and founders are of the KKK ??? Guess who killed president Lincoln ?? (tip: it's someone like Jonnie Depp) Guess who are dividing America nowadays??? (tip: someone like msnbc and cnn)

  9. All you black people, look here how white democrats tell you how stupid you are. Don't let them tell you that, beware of those racists. It's in their blood since begin 1700: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yW2LpFkVfYk

  10. @5:52 did you catch that about Lincoln. He was never for the freedom of black people. We are the only people in this country who are still in the land of their captivity. Black people were abducted, captured and forced to this land. After all the suffering, abuse, torture, free labor and theย killing of black people, the hateful people think they can ship us off. This nation owe black people and pay back is going to be aย _____. Revenge belongs to YAH!

  12. Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves. It was called the Emancipation Proclamation. But after that lynching was a picnic

  13. It's time the pro slavery Democrats pay reperations.All registered Democrats need to pay $10,000 into a national reperations trust fund.

  14. Negroes who were enslaved and scattered across the four corners of the Earth by way of slave ships are the true children of Israel that you read about in the Bible. Negroes are from the seed of Shem and are not Hamites which are authentic Africans. Deuteronomy 28: 15-68 and Leviticus chapter 26 describes the curses that fell upon the children of Israel for breaking the covenant and Psalm 83 exposes how the nations conspired to hide the Hebrews' true identity. There is a 400 Year Prophecy found in the Bible pertaining to the Israelites' final captivity (read Genesis 15: 13-14 and also read Congress Bill H.R.1242). Shalom.

  15. First, anyone who believes that one race is superior to all others are ignorant! Next, the first African-Americans who arrived in Jamestown, Virginia were indentured servant who through legislation became slaves . Imagine free labor, power and greed. With those concepts and manipulation are the real foundation of this country period! There will never be reparations because it would acknowledge the savage behavior exhibited by White America and provides wealth that most poor white feel entitled . Hence, the election of President Trump.

  16. Come on black guys, you are still the slaves from Africa if you do not vote the Democrats! They will take care of you, and make sure you won't get out of it!

  17. Genesis 15

    12 And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and, lo, an horror of great darkness fell upon him.

    13 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed (Deut.28:15-68) shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs (Deut.28:36), and shall serve them (Deut.28:48-50); and they shall afflict them four hundred years (H.R.1242); 1619 ~ 2019 Jeremiah 30 ~ Jacob's trouble

    14 And also that nation, whom they shall serve,*will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.* -Recompense & Reparations ~ 2nd Exodus (Joel 3, Obadiah, Zechariah 2, Isaiah 14, Micah 4, Ezekiel 36, Isaiah 52)

  18. No thanks. A nation built on the backs of innocent slaves, and genocide, and the raping of many cultures is nothing to stand for, put my hand on my heart for, act like none of it happened for and absolutely nothing to be proud of! My moral compass won't allow it!

  19. Weโ€™re not of African descent; weโ€™re the TRUE BIBLICAL ISRAELITES, or JEWS the Bible speaks of
    (Deuteronomy 28:15-68).

  20. We currently have the greatest President for African Americans
    since Abraham Lincoln. The unemployment rate for African
    Americans is at it's lowest point since 1865.

  22. To hope that the wrongs of the past will be made right is a good thing. But unrealistic to think it will be acheived by the benevolence of man. Reccompence by divine correction will be administered by the sovereign hand of God. It will be God that weighs this nation, and thoroughly chastens it. That may not be what ppl want to hear, but true. God is merciful, but he is also just. His mercy will run out on an unrepentant stiff necked ppl. We need only to look at Israel – the only other covenant nation that ever existed. Israel wasn't exempt from divine correction, and neither is the USA. For starters, the wealth of the wicked will be shaken. . .

  23. Crazy as it seems, you desegregated when? No wonder the world is so shocked at how backward you are, thank god for the internet, nobody really believed you were this racist or murdered so many black people and imprisoned them, it seemed too nuts, and to boot, you criticise Africa but you literally abducted their strong, young and healthy people and claim they are violent, if they were, it wouldn't have happened.

  24. Another way that blacks had their wealth taken was by being pencil whipped. Because blacks were not allowed to be taught to read and write, they were cheated on paper.

  25. OUR DEAR LEADER DONALD J. TRUMP SAID RECENTLY AND I QUOTE, "DON'T BELIEVE WHAT YOU SEE OR HEAR!" So, should you believe this video?

  26. Let me answer the question he ask. Are we actually headed to righting this wrong. We are not even close, I think we are about 100 years off.

  27. MY FAMILY FOUGHT IN ALL WARS STARTING WWI AND MY DAD AND UNCLES FOUGHT IN WWII AD SO MANY FAMILY MEMBERS IN THE MILITARY NOW.

  28. Blacks are under performing on all levels except for in a few areas that have high paychecks but very few openings.

  29. When people work in the mines in the province I live in Canada , it does not matter what your color is or where you are from everyone is respect equally . The way it should be in all aspects of our lives .

  30. bunch of negativity and whining…no positive ideas working toward anything…keep complaining…wasting your time…always someone else's fault…get over it…move forward.

  31. โ€œAfricans sold their own people as slavesโ€ is a stock argument White Americans use when the subject of slavery comes up.

    First, simply as an argument of fact it fails:

    Africa was not a country. Africans were not selling โ€œtheir ownโ€, they were selling their enemies, just as the Greeks and Romans once did. Africa, then as now, was made up of different countries. They were no more selling โ€œtheir ownโ€ than, say, โ€œEuropeansโ€ were killing โ€œtheir ownโ€ during the Holocaust.

    And it overlooks a few other things:

    Most African countries did not sell slaves and some even fought against it. But because Europeans back then could control the supply of guns there was little Africans could do to stop it.

    The Transatlantic slave trade was on a much greater scale than anything the Africans or anyone else ever did in the history of slavery. Countries were destroyed and millions died. Over 12 million were sold in less than 400 years, something so huge that it changed the genetic map of the world.

    The Transatlantic slave trade was racist. The African slave trade, for all of its other ills, was not that. Neither was the Greek and Roman slave trade. So slavery in places like Haiti, Barbados and America was much more cruel.

    As a moral argument it fails too:

    It uses what I call the Arab Trader argument: it excuses an evil of oneโ€™s own past by finding the same sort of evil done by others. Whites sold slaves, but Africans and Arab traders did too! Which, morally speaking, is at the same level as an eight-year-old saying, โ€œHe did it too!โ€ when caught doing something bad. We do not accept this argument from eight-year-olds, nor from bank robbers or wife beaters. โ€œAfricans did it too!โ€ is no better.

    But it is as a derailing argument that it comes into its own:

    Its main purpose is to draw attention away from what whites did by turning the tables. That part of their past makes White Americans uncomfortable. But instead of facing up to it, they have built up defences against it:

    Africans sold their own people as slaves.

    Africans are still selling slaves.

    Arab traders sold slaves too.

    Slavery goes back thousands of years.

    All races have practised slavery.

    Whites stopped slavery.

    My family never owned slaves.

    That was Ancient History.

    You are living in the past.

    Get over it!

    It was the times.

    Slavery did not make economic sense.

    Whites got to where they are by their own hard work

    Blacks are better off in America than in Africa

    Africans were savages.

    And on and on.

    Why not just face up to it? Because part of their sense of self worth is built on being white and how whites are better than everyone else, particularly blacks. But it is a huge lie, a lie that can only be maintained by not looking at their past โ€“ and present โ€“ squarely and honestly.
