I saw this movie, and it really was a pretty good movie. Of course it did not capture the totality of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade within a two hour span of time, but it did touch on some truths about the horrors, sadism, brutality, heartbreak of slavery in America. The movie also, touched on the very subject that ALL American historians try to ignore, whitewash, and propagandize out of the history of slavery, and that is the sexual rape, brutalization, and trafficking of African women for...

Slavery's not over. The same atrocities that happened during slavery happens in the Prison Industrial Complex. Rape, torture, executions, etc., etc. We complain about these "white" people day-after-day-after-day. Yet, here we are calling ourselves "Americans". Watch a couple hours of Tru-TV and ask yourselves, "Is this what I want to be?" Had slavery begun in Japan or China, would we be calling ourselves African-Japanese or African-Chinese? Please, the European is mental and we're mental.

Re: What Frederick Douglass, Lincoln's thorn and partner, said in Rochester on the fifth of July, 1852

Douglass did not mince words. He spoke of a government that mouthed the language of liberty yet committed "crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages"; of patriotism reduced to "swelling vanity"; of hypocrisy destroying the country's "moral power abroad." Although slavery is gone, Douglass's critique remains as relevant as in 1852. But so too does his optimism that the days of empire are over, and that in the modern world abuses cannot permanently be hidden from the light of day.

Corporate Slavery By Mike Schelstrate For centuries, the ruling elite worldwide have struggled with determining the optimal method of obtaining necessary labor from the lower classes at the least cost in order to increase their power and profits. In the era of European royalty, the peasants provided the labor required to maintain the economy. The peasants regularly worked until they were exhausted, were not allowed to own property, and received wages barely sufficient to feed their families.
