  1. Still will never accept that flag

  2. Take pride and thank you so much for telling it like it is

    And without centuries of slave labor, the US would have never, or taken much longer, to move from a lowly populated, poor, colonized backwater of the UK to an independent global super power. The country/economy was built on the backs of slave labor, despite what government approved history texts told you in school.

    • Progressive Humanist : I moved here in 2006, from England. Mine is the first country in history to make slavery illegal. There are still things to be, “proud,” of in our western history. But, we’ve fallen a long way from, “I regret that I have but one life to give for my country,” to, “go back to where you came from.” I genuinely WISH there were more blacks and other races in America, in overwhelming numbers, than white people. Racism would be such a pointless proposition, then . . . I suspect that this resurgence of racism, globally, has something to do with white, “minorities,” sensing that this is what the future holds? At least, I hope and pray that this is the last gasp? The alternative is unthinkable

    A.D.O.S BLACK PEOPLE were here since 1619 before this country was called AmeriKkka 1776 and fought in every war…Pay what you owe AmeriKkka!

      Get it from the people that made that history. Tell us how you`re suffering? As for the rest of it, you got it all back through 5 finger discount.

      Dennis Anderson Let me guess you’re a RACIST,Did you care when AmeriKkka paid Reparations to the native Indian, Japanese, and Jews?!?

    • Do I get a pass because my family migrated to the USA in the 1940’s or just being white means I owe you money?

    • The Black Shadow | August 17, 2019 at 12:19 PM | Reply

      J O You’re benefiting from the 200 years of free slave labor as well.. So yes you owe reparations also.. Just like my tax dollars are going to the Jewish people every year..But I had nothing to do with the Holocaust in Europe!

  5. America is becoming a white capitalist state as white people payed more than colored citizens and limit job occupation to the white and use immigration laws as an excuse for even against legal immigrants

  6. Jasper Perrywinkle | August 17, 2019 at 1:44 AM | Reply

    Reparations have been paid. Stop

  7. Google 1924 Democrat National Convention in New York city. It was called the Klanbake. Every democrat politician was wearing Klan robes. The KKK was the democrat party, that’s been replaced by ANTIFA, another anti American terrorist organization.
    The democrat party is the party of prejudice. Prejudice against Jews or anti semitism is seen everyday from the democrat party.

  8. Not even 8 minutes for this important and complex history with how it relates to current racial divides? You can do better MSNBC.

  9. I think the wealth gap is poor and wealthy American. not so much black and white. I know plenty of white people who feel the same way as unhappy people of any color.

  10. where’s chris haze

  11. America is getting tired of blacks crying about slavery.

  12. Yep and who can you blame for this? Nathan Bedford Forrest ? Or the current democrats. Why? Guess who the members and founders are of the KKK ??? Guess who killed president Lincoln ?? (tip: it’s someone like Jonnie Depp) Guess who are dividing America nowadays??? (tip: someone like msnbc and cnn)

  13. All you black people, look here how white democrats tell you how stupid you are. Don’t let them tell you that, beware of those racists. It’s in their blood since begin 1700: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yW2LpFkVfYk

    @5:52 did you catch that about Lincoln. He was never for the freedom of black people. We are the only people in this country who are still in the land of their captivity. Black people were abducted, captured and forced to this land. After all the suffering, abuse, torture, free labor and the killing of black people, the hateful people think they can ship us off. This nation owe black people and pay back is going to be a _____. Revenge belongs to YAH!

  17. They Were Enslaved By The Now Left…Just A Different Name Back Then.

    One of the first Virginia slaveowners was a black himself. 🤷‍♂️
