There was what they called slave trading activities, which means, that African people were kidnapped from Mama Africa and sold like merchandise under brutal circumstances. Then there was slavery, that is to say, African people were placed on various slave plantations and other kinds of free labor, where they were forced to work without being paid, and if the slave masters think, that they did not do enough work, or did not work long enough, they would be whipped without any mercy.
Now let me say this and say it loud and clear, at that time, when they boasted, that slavery and slave trading were abolished in various countries of the world, it was not because they were convinced that slavery and slave trading practices were wrong, but it was because they were not making as much money as they used to make in the earlier days, they were losing money, became it was too expensive for them to make large profits as before, there were to much rebellions, people were breaking tools which were too expensive to be reproduced, then there was the industrial Revolution taking place in Europe, and they could not stand the competion. So, they were forced to abolish slavery and slave trading activities.
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.
Baba Ras Marcus.
