You know I've always said we were enslaved 500 years-not realizing they are counting from 1619-which I reject as the actual time. It just the recorded time by John whatever his name-he's the same dude that married Pocahontas. Remember not all Europeans could read and write when they first came here so depending on them to tell when the FIRST slave came to the new world? Nawl. As why I took the position of 500 years cuz massa lie lie lie....and still lying. So. But!
