As the powder keg in Ferguson convulses with racist anarchy, let’s take a deep breath and look into our hidden American history, and with these revelations, unchain ourselves from the mind control manipulating the way we see ourselves and each other.
During the 17th century until the 19th century, hundreds of thousands of human cargo of men, women, and children were transported on British ships destined for the Americas. These people were subjected to horrific cruelty, some burned alive or beheaded to serve as examples.
From 1641 to 1652 the British killed 5000,000 of them while selling 300,000 of them into slavery.
In the 1650’s More than 100,000 children between the ages of 10 to 14 were ripped from their parents and sold as slaves into the West Indies,Virginia, and Barbados. 1,302 slaves were dumped overboard into the Atlantic Ocean so that the Ship’s company would have enough food to eat.
Once reaching the New World they were manacled, beaten, and whipped on a regular basis. But these slaves weren’t from Africa, these forgotten souls were from Ireland.
