Greetings, blessings and respect to all.
Before InI begin InI doesn't want to make this about who was better and who was worse ect. PEOPLE both black and white were WRONG by enslaving their fellow man and treating them like..for lack of a better word, crap.
InI has been doing a lot of research lately and has discovered that the coin is not merely one sided in regards to slavery. As you may know slavery was long practiced all over the world by many cultures and is not unique to the Trans-Atlantic slave trade we all think of today. Please take carefully what InI is about to say with an open mind and due consideration.
The ORIGINAL concept of slavery is not evil but rather fully justified.
Slavery, as defined in the Ible and and as practiced early on was not about what we know it as today. One was born free and became a "slave" which can also be defined as an indentured servant when he owed a man a debt. The slave was allowed to own land care for his family and was meant to be treated fairly. In the Ible a man regardless of the debt he owed was only to provide services for a maximum of 7 years (or less depending on his debt) and then he was to be freed and granted his 40 acres and a mule.
Not in the Ible (at least I'm not sure) but still reasonable was that a man could be put into slavery if he was a criminal.
Now, in regards to slavery between black and white. Did anyone even know that Africans enslaved white people? Furthermore did anyone know Africans enslaved whites first? Did you know that during the Trans-Atlantic slave trade the ships carried many Irish and other European slaves whom were of less "value" than African slaves?
The Barbary slave trade pre-dates the Trans Atlantic slave trade by 100 years or more. Africans from Northern Africa would attack European merchant ships and rob them of their goods and hold their captives as slaves. They also went to territories near to Northern Africa such as Spain and Italy to raid settlements to capture their people as slaves. It is estimated that over 1million Europeans were captured and made slaves.
These slaves were treated with cruelty and disrespect just as the African slaves that were later brought to the Americas by the Europeans 100 years later. Most of these white slaves were freed by being bought back by European churches who collected money to buy them back from their owners.
Another fact before InI continue. Slavery was long practiced in Africa before the Trans Atlantic slave trade. The African Elite, through war and other means would obtain slaves and trade them among other African elite for labor. 90% of the slaves imported from Africa to the Americas were sold to them by these men to the Europeans. Without them the Europeans could not have accomplished what they had done in the Americas. In those ships also carried white slaves predominantly of Irish decent who were of less value because 1. They were just plain captured at no cost and 2. They could not withstand the climate and disease in the Americas as well as the African slave.
In the first years of the Trans Atlantic slave trade both African and European slaves could gain their freedom after working as a slave for 7-10 years. At this time a slaves had not been distinguished by race. After this the freed slave was to be given 50-250 acres of land, livestock, and seed to grow crops. Hence one of the reasons there was free slaves while the institution of slavery was still in effect. Once one was freed he or she was allowed to own and import slaves white and black, which they did. Freed blacks owned slaves whom were white and black and had them to labor on their land. Later on laws were put in place that allowed freed blacks to exclusively own slaves of their own race. Soon after laws were passed that stated a negro slave could be owned for life as well as their slave offspring. These laws still recognized free slaves and their children stating that the status of the mother would be passed down to her children as they were "grandfathered" in.
A large amount of the freed slaves were women that their white masters fell in love and had children with. Those then former slave women and their free mulatto children inherited land and slaves. Unfortunately a majority of the "new" black slave owners that where half black themselves held themselves higher than their black bredren and treated them badly. Not all of the black slave owners were evil though, some would still buy slaves with intention of granting them freedom or would free them after a time.
In conclusion this is a very short synopsis of the Istory of slavery both black and white.
InI suspect Babylon don't teach this in school because they wish for us to stay under downpression and withhold this information as a powerful propaganda tool. If InI black bredren knew we once owned white slaves we would know that we are not inferior to anyone!! Babylon wants to create an image that our ancestors were weak minded feeble people who were conquered and defeated by slavery. They don't want I black bredren to point the finger at a white man and say to him "I owned your ancestors too!" Babylon want us to believe that another race got one over on us and we should be angry and ashamed. They want us to believe all Africans came from a bush and were uncivilized. Babylon wants us to hate and covet our white bredren possessions. Babylon wants our white bredren to look on his black skin bredren and say "I owned you!" and think he is superior. Now Babylon has two slaves working in his hate factory black and white.
But InI say to you all my brothers and sisters black and white. The evil way slavery was practiced in the past was the devils ingenious plot to divide us. InI is forming a movement to unite the whole family once again. We all stem from the same roots. Once we form together in love we can fight hate, greed, and all forms of badmind with love and implant love in the hearts of all men and women so the devil has no opportunity to divide us again.
InI hope the I has taken InI reasoning into careful consideration and with love and an open mind and heart. InI would love to hear the I responses.
Jah love, Jah live, Jah guide us.
Peace and love to you all.
