*****Let me entertain this RIDICULOUS premise. Even if we were already here and not shipped, there could still be auctions. Why would not being a mass transAtlantic immigration from Afrika preclude auctions?*****
Have you ever considered that perhaps we were hired as indentured servants and never as slaves? Are you aware that accodring to history, that the slave was paid a wage? Infact many slaves would save up enough money to SO-CALL free themselves. If they were hired as labourers/workers, then this would most definetly erase the need for an auction block. "WOULD IT NOT"? If whites hated us as much as the story says, then why did they pay us any wage at all?
We have photographs of ole Abe Licoln as the emmancipator, yet no pictures of the actual slave sale?!?!?!?
I'm sorry, but I was raised to ask questions when something does not sound right to me.
We have pictures of everything from this time period. Yet no auction or exiting slave ships?
Am I to believe as a black woman, that something this important in our sorty, that nobody ever took one second to capture this event via photograph?
Is this OURStory or HIStory ?
Now this does not get the white man off the hook, because he treated his workers horrible, and did evil atrocities to our people ever since the hyksos invasion, up until the civil rights movement. But that is another topic for another time. As for right now I need some photographic evidence.
Is this as far as we have come as conscious people, just to simply believe eveverything the white man tell us?
WHY THE PRINTS AND ARTIST DRAWINGS AND NO PHOTOGRAPHS? IT'S MUCH EASIER TO TAKE A SNAP SHOT THAN TO SIT DOWN AND DRAW A SCENE.
