The Metamorphosis of Lies for Negroes (1)

In this video, we responded to a comment that tried to suggest that a bunch of Priests numbering less than 20 could have sold millions of Negro slaves. We also tried to disprove the lie that they had a bunch of people who were doing slave hunting for them.

In this part 1 we showed that based on simple volume and documentary records, there was no way the Arom Priests could have gotten a commercial number of people let alone 140,000 Slaves exported from the Bight of Biafra and Benin in 1838.

In a nutshell, the slave master and his foot soldiers as well as his collaborators like the Fulanis and Arabs work hard to ensure that the wrong people are accused of an atrocity they committed because of Religion.

Please watch the video and remember to leave comments especially where you disagree. We welcome criticisms.
