The Negro-His own Greatest Enemy(2)

This Video series is a continuation of our response to the allegation by one of the descendants of the slave hunters who claimed that it was possible that the Negroes could have been the ones raiding and capturing themselves for sale as slaves. This allegation has been age long and the slave master has leveraged on it to conceal the atrocities of his foot soldiers against the Negroes.

The video simply continued to examine the allegation that Aro Priests could have conducted slave raids and sold slaves and showing how subtle the slave masters foot soldiers can be; for example, alleging that all the slaves from the Bight of Biafra and Benin could have been labelled Eboes by the initial authors who did not know the sellers at that time. Interestingly, you see that this slave masters foot soldier is suggesting that the Europeans and Arabs did not know who they were buying the slaves from which we consider hilarious and ludicrous also.

In our response we challenged the viewers to explain how the Aro priests could have captured and sold slaves and no single book predating 1950 recorded such. No single account of who they were or how they could have conducted slave raids without an army or any means of transportation..
