  1. The enslaved woman was most likely an American Indian! You blacks will NEVER BE FREE because you, just like Simba from the Lion King, DONT KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!!!

  2. Those who are trying to usurp our Indigenous position, should look at how the Chinese who are taking over their countries, which they don t even speak about. They are on the Islands and in Africa, marrying their Women, to get legitimacy, and part of their lineage. injecting themselves into their history, stealing their culture, in their churches with them, opening up restaurants, using their traditional foods etc, to see how its done, and how its being done to us, especially by those who look like us, taking us to the Islands and to Africa, where we don t belong.

  3. The Gullah Geechee are in fact ABORIGINAL AMERICANS! They are NOT and never were from Africa/(can). Many of the Indigenous Aboriginal Americans called "Indians" were shipped from the Americas to everywhere…West coast Africa being one of the places. Please tell the story correctly…these ARE Americans and NOT Africans…"Indian" slavery was the first slavery…along with all the "indentured" POOR white people from all over Europe. Sadly, our tribes, being the beautiful human people they were, took all the orphans an castaways that Europe DUMPED on our shoes into our tribes and taught them our ways.. even intermarried etc…which is why there is such confusion that they are "indians" (more like 5$ ones) now–simple identity theft via paper genocide! In essence, America is our MAMA as Baba Dick Gregory said and the truth can no longer be hidden in the case of US. Also, people must see that the pale face has ALWAYS been poor…not sure why everyone can't see that Europe is a THIRD WORLD COUNTRY WITH STOLEN FIRST WORLD RESOURCES!!! America consists of Canada all the way down to South America–this includes the Caribbean islands…If we gain a true perspective on the geographical location… it is obvious to see Europe is the bottom feeder without true resources…hence all the exploitation and fighting! If you are going to tell it, Please by all means tell the truth–it does matter to all of US as indigenous american descendants!

  4. This is why ADOS is necessary!

    ADOS isn't anti-immigrant!!! 
    However the fruits of African American Slavery/Oppression and laws that were created to protect free slaves and their offspring ADOS, A LOT of immigrants throughout the world living in America have attached themselves to it and reaping the benefits/rewards that weren't meant for them. An African American person can't go to any part of the world and reap benefits as what's going on in America!!!

  5. A good of the time " The History of America Indian: Particularly, those nations adjoining to the Mississippi, East and West Florida, Georgia, South and North Carolina, and Virginia. According to Webster America Standard English Dictionary of 1828 "American copper colored original people who met the Europeans." Not told in history aborigines were brown research hue of brown.

  6. My grandmother's homeland. Im born and raised in the NE. I hear the dialect and it reminds me of my grandmother and my grandaunt. Unfortunately one of their siblings sold land that their father left to them for pennies on the dollar. SMH. He to didn't appreciate or know the value of that land.

  7. Bullshit were already here we are aboriginal Indigenous to this land originally called Turtle Island. We are the real Indians to this land  the jig is up whites are the visitors & others. Feathers Up Rise Up Wise Up !

  8. If your African how do you have ancestral rights to land ,when 1 aborigine people who are already there, 2 None of your ancestors are from that land and 3 the land didnt birth you.
    You have to find your people in Africa and claim what's ancestraly yours. And that's if your 100% sure your African.

  9. When the first human manifested on this earth, who was there with pen, pencil, paper, and a map to define and document the place of entry? Who was there to document the exact time and date? Was there just one landmass or was it already broken up into separate continents when 1st human came forth? Where are the ancient writings that describe a place named “Africa”? A place called Africa is not even identified or written in the Bible- KJV. The motherland for the original humans could be Antarctica? Who really knows? All we have are his-story based on theories. And based on where some bones were found, and the digging ain’t even over yet. Lots of land to dig up.

  10. I am a Lowcountry Salt Water Gullah Geechee and I love it and my mother's mom's nickname was Geechee Gal and I'm searching what part of Africa my ancestors came from, yes land is very important to my people in SC and the pink people would do anything to steal land but not from my family and they stole most of that land on Hilton Head Island and the other Islands as well.

  11. THAT'S WHY REPARATIONS NEED TO BE PAID IMMEDIATELY and YOU DON'T TELL BLACK-PEOPLE TO "FORGET THE PAST"! NO! THIS COUNTRY and THIS GOVERNMENT AND ALL THE CORPORATIONS THAT WERE ALSO RESPONSIBLE FOR SLAVERY TO PAY REPARATIONS TOO! and THAT INCLUDES the VATICAN ESPECIALLY! THE ENGLISH ALSO OWE REPARATIONS TOO!

  12. Many denies this research such begin with yourself to your parents and back. Each 10, 20 to 100 years back they were called what. In short African-American, Black, Negro, Colored, Tawny, swarthy, Negro ,
    Amerind, to Aborigines. Noah Webster in 1828 Standard America Dictionary recorded as "Americans copper-colored original people who met Europeans." Books that confirm this research document in 1830, 1928, 1747, 1635, and 1535 and beyond that this country is oldest land. America BC tell of civilizations supported by Hidden History goes to prehistoric times and in "America Aboriginal of the United States of America to present day," written in late 1790 Europeans spoke to Aborigines and researched them. But Jack Adair lived with then for 40 years their language, customs, and way of the people. When comes to Gullan speech and dance can be traced back to them. We can disputes until the cows come home until one does their personal facts back. They will miss facts. Dane Calloway, Doc Holiday, Native Law and more put in-depth documentaries out because we have done research found documented facts of originals that tell a very different story.

  13. I am a Ghanaian, and we Blacks are NOT fools as all the world thinks. It is only that the HAND OF THE LORD IS TOO HARD ON US because of the iniquities of our fathers. The LORD is soon going to execute and fulfil Isaiah chapter 14 on America and Isaiah chapter 18 for the whole Black race. The man mending the net in the video reminds me of what my people are still doing here. LORD HAVE MERCY ON YOUR PEOPLE OF THE SEED OF ADAM THAT FIRST BLACK MAN CREATED AS THE EARTHLY SON OF GOD THE LORD, AS A LIVING SOUL.

  14. we are in chattahoochee valley and we are not Africans people or slaves.
    Come and visit us in muscogee county Georgia in cussetta georgia and eutaw Alabama.
    We don't know anything about an African slave trade until we started reading your propaganda.
    Thank you all and we are waiting to tell our story of the trail of tears and reconstruction period.

  15. I was told that the Africans sold the Hebrews to the Americans because they disrespected God by serving idols they making it their God and it's in the Bible. 🙄💯 That's why we're in the conditions that we're in I thank God everyday that I walk with him. 💯🙄🙏🏽

  16. Andrew Jackson was one evil democrat. Thank god the republicans freed the slaves and brought voting rights to women and minorities. Now it is time to give the land back to the Asians who originally settled this country through South America.

  17. We fought a War to END SLAVERY and almost 1,000,000 Americans of black, white, and other races died in that war. We must know history but also point out that it was the Democrats that refused to end slavery and it was them who ran the KKK, etc. I pray that we can truly live out MLK's dream. banned.video is forbidden information

  18. Narrator refers to r people as slaves r people were Hebrew enslaved descendants of Israel thru the west coast of Africa where they escape to after the 70AD destruction Jerusalem reparations long overdue globally…

  19. WOE TO THE BLOODY CITY ! IT IS ALL FULL OF LIES AND ROBBERY, THE PREY DEPARTEH NOT!! WOE TO HER THAT IS FILTHY AND POLLUTED , TO THE OPPRESSING CITY !! SHE OBEYED NOT THE VOICE, SHE RECEIVED NOT CORRECTION, SHE TRUSTED NOT IN THE LORD, SHE DREW NOT NEAR TO HER POWER…………WHEREFORE THOU SAITH THE ………………( HO'-LY ONE OF IS'-RA-EL, ) BECAUSE YE DESPISE THIS WORD, AND TRUST IN OPPOSITION AND PERVERSENESS, AND STAY THEREON ….THEREFORE THIS INIQUITY SHALL BE TO YOU AS A BREACH READY TO FALL, SWELLING OUT IN A HIGH WALL, WHOSE BREAKING COMETH SUDDENLY AT AN INSTANT… the term african american came out in 1985 with jesse jackson.!!!!!!!! The name you are calling yours self derived FROM. ( Scorpio Africanus ) …..am er I go …. 've sp'-ucc-i. !!!!!!!!!!!AND THAT, KNOWING THE TIME , THAT NOW IT IS HIGH TIME TO AWAKE OUT OF SLEEP, FOR NOW IS OUR SALVATION NEARER THAN WHEN WE BELIEVED.

  20. I asked can someone please answer one damn question. How did the pyramids get in the America's that before the slave trades of Africans as we keep being told. Ok the Geechee are descendants of slaves, give them their Reparations.

  21. A HELLVA lot of PEOPLE in this have heard of this SUB CULITURE in BLACK AMERICA and even MORE have not . WHOM they are and HOW that got to be WHAT they are is a LONG STORY. INSITUTION if SLAVERY or BONDAGE is whet CREATED them . They RUN AWAY S from the PLANTATIONS in the the AREA AROUND them ,how they became the GULLAH PEOPLE though is as OLD as MANKIND SURVIVAL . The LAND DISAGREEMENT that's another STORY .. For thing was no HONORED in the EMANCIPATION ACT was the 40 ACRES of LAND and A MULE for the EMANCIPATED SLAVES , it been a SORE ISSUE ever sicneb the EMANCIPATION ACT was SIGNED and made LAW by PRESIDENT GRANT after the CIVIL WAR . The LAW was PASSED under PRESIDENT LICONH but did not. LAW until PRESIDENT GRANT signed after the CIVIL WAR ENDED and he became PRESIDENT . The CLAUSE about the 40 ARCES and a MULE was there but NEVER HONORED , there were other CLAUSES in the ACT whether there ALL HONORED or not has been SORE POINT with some for YEAR'S .That's why evver now and the PROBLEM about SLAVERY RETABITIONS come UP with a lot of INDIVIDUALS I'm the BLACK AMERICAN COMMUNITY. IPERSONALLY have NEVER READ the LAW so what's I can not TELL and will not even TRY , this though is where the PROBLEM is which KEEPS coming UP in MY PERSONAL OPINION.

  22. ya know This vid is very true, however, it fails to mention those who fought for the confederacy. While they wasn't nearly as numerous as those who fought against it, they still fought freely for the south. The war is written by the victors as a war against Slavery, however for the southerner it was a war states rights. The Gullah Geechee people are a distinct and intermixed group on the barrier islands of South Carolina and Georgia. They do bring a rich heritage to all of us, black, white, yellow or otherwise colored. And yes I have many friends who grew up in those cultures.

  23. Stop the African narrative… people of color been here before the arrival of Caucasians.. The out of Africa Theory is just a Theory not a fact.. key word —-> "Theory"!!!!!!!

  24. I took a trip through Southern Georgia last week and there are a number of Blacks who does own quite a bit of Land in Rural Areas. Still we're going to get what belongs to us. Theyre just holding it for us. Many just dont know it. Yet

  25. I just found out my great grandmother was gullah geechee. And that she had to flee from South Carolina, they said my great grandfather was seminole Indian. I wish I knew more than this. 😔

  26. A person on here said that the black her the 1st Indians…do they not know the difference between black and a america Indian…which was here before the black…this should be the american Indians which was run off this land..just a question ? Dont under stand…

  27. I’ll never understand so called black people…how could you let a pale skinned people you claimed enslaved you turn around and teach you your hiSTORY? Like Malcolm X said when he came back from Africa so called black people in America are Aborigines meaning from the beginning…in 1526 a Spaniard came to the coast of SC and allegedly brought 100 enslaved Africans with him and the Africans and the native Americans came together and killed the settlers and left the settlement with the natives never to be seen again…that’s from the Library of Congress…so if that’s the case that would mean there were a dark skinned people that’s how they were able to blend in with the natives yet we where never taught about that rebellion and I was born and reared on James Island and went to school here and the explorer according to his journal in the library of Congress described the natives as dark skinned with short thick black hair much like the Ethiopians of that time…that’s why we weren’t taught about it bc if the description he made…trace your roots 90% of the so called natives on the Dawes rolls are of Scottish and Irish descent with little to no native blood in them whatsoever in fact look up the racial integrity act of 1924 and the racist bigot Walter Plecker…I’m of Creek Cusabo descent I also learned two of my great great grandmothers where of Irish and Creek descent…stop allowing a pale skinned people who never loved you and never will tell you your truth….they wanted the land and control of the trade and the only way for them to get it was to displace the aboriginal people of the Americas and give them a knew identity called African American

  28. MISINFORMATION from a foreigner acting like they know itsh. Just stop.
    Noooo African slaves own land here in the states fool.
