1,000 people with no toilet, change of clothes or fresh water. People are afraid of dying and going to hell when these people spent their entire lives in hell. Shame on the white people that did this to the black people..my relatives included. How could humans be so stupid I wonder...than I look at today's headlines and wonder...when will the world be at peace???? That also includes all the animals who are in a living hell at this moment waiting to be slaughtered and are abused.

As a gay man, I have to say that Lemon continuously embarrasses me. He uses his preciousness to promote victimization, and yet how much money does he have? I am poor, and I am gay, but I am not a victim. People choose to be victims -- Kanye West was right about that. It's continuing and expanding in the victim Olympics of the current feminist psychosis ideology that runs the West these days.

Wow. Crying ❤ What a Journey. The door of no return. But that's our story, our reality. YAH promised to come back and gather us from the four corners of the earth, rescuing us from our land of captivity. He spoke of having such a wonderful life.......hope some day I will be able to say that in spite of the sickness and poverty. But what really makes us rich is the relationship we establish with ABBA YAHUAH even in sickness, poverty and suffering. I don't know anything about my family. My Mom died at 33 as a result of injuries suffered from many years of ongoing violent (stabbed/cut up with knives and ice picks in front of us) domestic abuse. My Dad the abuser died not too long after her. Lost both parents in the same year. All the children placed in foster homes and abused. My Foster dad pointed and fired a shotgun at me standing less than 10 feet away to silence me from exposing the sexual molestation he put me through.......gun kicked, he missed. Many years later my child murdered by a shotgun blast. My Father was from Louisiana (Albert Franklin) One day I too would like to walk backwards through the door of no return and trace my steps through the journey that my Ancestors took. Thank You so very much for sharing with us your life story. I have always watched you on CNN and wondered about who you are. Now I know. Much Love to you Brother!!! 🌹

Slavery was still in full practice in the mid 1960's in the Middle Eastern countries, known as Muslim countries.This countries would go down in the middle and deep parts of Africa to capture people's and inslave them. It's a fact look it up Saudi Arabia was one of the main ones. Saudi's the last time I checked were not these evil white people that everyone is talking about here in the states, and they've done this for hundreds of years.Its something the news or the history books will not talk about

Angelique Dooley forms of slavery still exist on all continents. There are hundreds of thousands of people kept in various forms of slavery, mostly victims of human trafficking, in the present day United States.

Adebayo Tosin (1 месяц назад)
The fact (not the truth) stated He is 76% African, 25% Nigerian and 22% Cameroon/Congo. My question is why was he taken to Ghana where he has no roots? He should have been taken to Badagry, in Lagos Nigeria where there were slave camps. CNN likes distorting the facts. Mr. Lemon, you are a Nigerian not Ghanian and you should start eating Nigerian jollof.

Adebayo Tosin How is a sample going to be used against someone? People have been doing DNA testing for decades now. There have been people more prominent than Don Lemmon who have done DNA tests, like John McCain and Bernie Sanders, two presidential candidates.
Adebayo Tosin (1 месяц назад)
+nthnpark0 they can use artificial intelligence to determine that. They don't have to take samples from people to later be used against them.
nthnpark0 (1 месяц назад)
Adebayo Tosin DNA tests like ancestry.com are flawed because there hasn't been enough African people who have participated with DNA to cross reference with like Europeans have. Even ancestry.com admitted themselves that there still needs a lot of work to be done in order to improve results for people of African descent. 23andme as well. If you can help with this, please do. It's free and it's no detriment. https://www.23andme.com/global-genetics/

How can that man say welcome back without also saying apologies on behalf of his ancestors. The part of history that is seldom spoken of is that it was the Africans the self who put their own people in these holding dungeons for the slave traders to collect. Imagine the sound of suffering for 3 months at a time while waiting to be taken across the ocean. It highlights that there is a shared responsibility in this heinous part of history, that we have to recognise. Any doubts check out the video: In focus Sarah Forbes Bonetta here on YT. The history is very interesting and hidden from the history books
nthnpark0 (30 дней назад)
SimplySam xxx "Slavery was a big part of the culture in Africa " what's the point? Didn't forms of slavery (nothing in the same league as the permanent hereditary chattel plantation slavery in the Americas that was based on race) exist on all continents, (including among Native Americans if you bothered to read the Wikipedia link, which I'm not sure you did) and Europe (the word "slave" comes from "slav")? "Selling your own people on, whether they were in your tribe on not," So, if two European countries have a war, it's not "their own people" ditto for Asians and Native Americans, but two enemy groups in Africa are "their own people?" Pretty good double standard there. To not look at things through the people of the day's point of view, and to judge them by today's racial standards is not good. Especially when you ignore the gun cycle that European slave traders pushed onto enemy West African coastal kingdoms, just like the white slave traders had done with Native Americans, which is why I showed you that Wikipedia quote and the link it came from. If you put yourself in their shoes at the time, you'd go abduct enemies for the white slave traders too if it meant being able to protect your people (the people of your ethnic/tribal group) too. In fact, there are records of that happening "In 1720, King Agaja Trudo of Dahomey not only opposed the trade, but even went as far as to attack the forts that the European powers had constructed on the coast. But his need for firearms forced him to reach an agreement with the European slave traders." http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/british/abolition/africa_article_01.shtml Then you have to realize that African participation with white people only went as far as providing the initial captives to the whites. That was it. They were not responsible for what the whites did to the victims for the rest of their lives and even to their descendants. Nevermind the fact that the whites were done with them after they got the victims from them. There were no cases of white slavers going back to the groups they paid to kidnap people for them and giving them shares of the money they made from American plantations.
SimplySam xxx (1 месяц назад)
+nthnpark0 Slavery was a big part of the culture in Africa long before the "Slave Trade" began. Selling your own people on, whether they were in your tribe on not, was an act of greed as well as cowardice. My point is a lot of factors contributed to what happened back then. True, there has never been a marked apology from the descendants of slave traders or indeed the huge corporations they built on the back of slaves I.e. banks, sugar, cotton companies etc. To put your fellow Africans in a dungeon for 3 months at a time in chains in the darkness is disgusting in my view regardless.
nthnpark0 (1 месяц назад)
SimplySam xxx Africans did not "put themselves in these holding dungeons" Africans who participated in the slave trade were doing so out of their own protection just like Native Americans did. " *The increased rise of the gun-slave trade forced the other tribes to participate or their refusal to engage in enslaving meant they would become targets of slavers* " https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slavery_among_Native_Americans_in_the_United_States So why apologize when the ethnic groups involved were trying to look out for and protect their actual "own" people which were the people of their groups, not enemy groups? At any rate, Africans in general have apologized for the gun cycle that white slavers put on them that forced them to participate in carrying out white people's demands for kidnapped black people, yet white people are not going apologize for their gun cycle or their demand for captives or their treatment of blacks in the Americas, not just the initial captives but their descendants. Hmmm.

We should be taught about slavery as part of history 2 learn from it empathy,cuz it is exist in Yamen,Libya,Murtiatnya.Slavery is the evilist crime committed by Europeans,Arabs,Turks against Africans,the best traders were Jewish in Spain during the 14/15 century & before that.

Was the "ATLANTIC SLAVE TRADE"⛴️🔗 prophesied in the BIBLE📖? ➡️Acts 7:6-7⬅️ “This is what God said to him: ‘Your descendants will live in another country. They will be strangers. The people there will make them slaves and mistreat them for 400 years. (7) But I will punish the nation that made them slaves.’ And God also said, ‘After those things happen, your people will come out of that country. Then they will worship me here in this place.

Very sad. His Mom was overcome. Slavery was and remains a terrible blight in our history. No person should ever have been taken from their homeland and treated like thousands of people were treated. I don't know how those people lived with themselves knowing what they'd done. I'm moved to tears every time.

There is a huge slave castle on the coast of Cameroon as well where thousands of slaves were shipped off to Europe from. So Don Lemon's ancestors might have exited Africa through that one, not necessarily the one in Ghana. Hope he thought about visiting both
