Men women and children were not stolen from their homeland, in many cases they were sold by their leaders as part of a trade with Europeans. In some cases they were indeed stolen, but usually they weren't. It was a terrible, inhuman and selfish deal, but a deal.

Sadly, we needed the slaves due to all the shit we needed to farm. And the most inhumane way was the most efficient. And nobody wants to work 18 hours in 88 F sunny days. Yah though I’m proud of my confederate heritage but slavery? Fuck no. That’s why I’m still somewhat glad the union won.

@Sean McCadden that's why I love it, i actually enjoy studying it hardcore but i watched this because i wanted to see how good a job they did summing it up and keeping it accurate, it's a lot less brutal than it was irl and some things go unmentioned probably because they really want that ad and sponsor money but for someone who is into history but doesn't have the patience or time to study it, it's okay
Sean McCadden
Sean McCadden Күн мурун
@successful failure Yeah the slaves weren’t even allowed to learn and most were born and immediately ripped from their families. Definitely a really horrible time in American history and I still can’t believe how majority actually thought it was okay for the longest time. I applaud those who fought against it even before the civil war began. I actually wasn’t much into American history but found this channel today and I absolutely love it! Helps makes history more interesting and easy to take in

@Sean McCadden yeah man, it's pretty gnarly I gotta give props to those people, none of that was easy I'm kind of a history nerd and none of that was easy for either race, the white people trying to help the slaves fought hard to hide them, protect them, and fight the confederates and the slaves, well let me put it this way it's hard going from a barely fed slave with little education to an escaped fighter for freedom, they're not stupid or weak people either but back then even the white kids who were poor didn't have much education so yeah none of that could've been easy
Sean McCadden
Sean McCadden Күн мурун
@successful failure Yeah I definitely picture it as like a classic cartoon where the heroes have to trust some creepy random person in the forest where in our heads and modern day knowledge would send all kinds of red flags up but at the time it makes sense and also since a lot of already free’d slaves often used their freedom to helping the Underground Railroad and helping free other slaves.

@Sean McCadden yeah, it is kind of a funny visual though, as dark as it is i just imagine a few slaves running through the forest and one night this crazy white man comes up to them with a lantern saying "come hahd in mah basement" XD

Just so you know, a large portion of Africans weren't stolen and kidnapped by Europeans. Many were prisoners of war or criminals in African tribes and kingdoms, and were sold by those tribes and kingdoms to the Europeans. Many of these African states made this the centers of their economies.

Wait a minute, Abraham Lincoln is documented in history as a white supremacists whose emancipation of African captives was done not for moral instances but rather to prevent the fracturing of the Union. History clearly points this out as well as Lincoln himself in his writings.

North Carolina’s economy did not depend on slaves. It depended on other things more. They were just surrounded by slave states and knew they were likely to be invaded so they went along with it. They made their decision to succeed after Tennessee but they did it more rapidly so they wouldn’t be surrounded by the CSA. Hence why Tennessee and NC argue about who was last to join the confederacy.

And now today, it’s ironic Democrats are taking down Democratic confederates and slave owner statues. 😂💀 But as of recently, they vandalized the statue of Abraham Lincoln who was republican and fought against slavery. That’s where I draw the line because hell nah. I don’t care about the democratic figures in the south, but Republican figures like Abraham? Like they vandalized it with poop and paint. By the way, the big switch got debunked. Democrats still rule over poor minority neighborhoods with nothing changing while the south became less racist and more welcoming as democrats left. There’s some other things that debunk it of course.
