the money which was made from slavery, was taken into Europe, and was helpful in the banks of Europe, to provide loans for governments, and business people, which eventually, were used to build hospitals, prisons, clinics, houses, court houses, factories, post offices and various community and civic amenities, which were used by the public. So, in that manner, the following generation of the slave masters, benefitted from the wealth which was made from slavery. Plus, there were people who related to the slave masters from a family point of view, who were able to inherit their legacy. They then got married, and caused the wealth to be shared around. Indeed, there were some people who were imprisoned and were badly treated by their own people, but the entire European population was not in prison at the same time, there were always more people who were not in prison, than those who are there. It has been said that there are seven million people in the prisons of the USA today, more people in prison than in any other part of the world, yet there are more people who are not in prison than those who are in there in the USA.
When they proclaimed that slavery was to be abolished in the West Indies in the year 1838, twenty million sterling pounds were sent to the West Indies to pay the slave masters for the cost of their slaves, before they could be set free. But not a single penny were given to the slaves as recompense, for the evil which were done to them for such a very long time. They were just let go in the land and told that they were free, they were indeed abondoned, and our presence in these western lands of captivity, is clear evidence that we are still abondoned after more than five hundred years. The journey of life continues. Take the best care of yourself and your people.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE.
