CNN’s @DonLemon tells royal commentator Hilary Fordwich the royal family should pay reparations — immediately regrets it pic.twitter.com/LotCfBoAym

.@HilaryFordwich is absolutely correct. White folks bought slaves, but black folks sold slaves. Any reparations should start with Africa. And should @BarackObama & @KamalaHarris get a check or invoice?

And black African’s are still selling black African slaves to the Arab world 🤷‍♂️ but it’s hard for some to hear, White Privilege is a myth
 
In reply to @VernonForGA
And what about the North’s soldiers and families like mine who fought and won liberating slaves in the south?
 
In reply to @VernonForGA
You hear a British accent and automatically think the person is correct. She is so wrong! No African sold his own people to European slave drivers.
 
In reply to @VernonForGA
Both parties would be responsible the buyer and the seller. This passing the buck is lazy and unprofessional. Be honest you don’t have a plan and you just wanna ride the coattails of those who have a larger platform then your self.

My great, great grandfather joined the Union army, was wounded in the battle of Atlanta, captured by confederate troops, then survived starvation and disease in Andersonville. Not that we would want it, but if reparation were to become reality, why is our family not entitled?

The money trail of the Slave Trade started and ended in Britain at its most lucrative point. No monetary system equivalent in Africa during this point in history friend. Black people didn’t sell sh’t, ain’t get sh’t. The 💰 is still in Britain. They paraded a bit of it this week.

That’s what I tell my people “The Aztecs had slaves yet you celebrate them” 🤷🏻‍♂️ They don’t want to talk about that!
 
We are doomed in this mf country...
 
 
In reply to @VernonForGA
Are you saying the African Countries that profited from selling Slaves should pay? That makes more sense.
 
In reply to @VernonForGA
I'm thinking an INVOICE would be proper for those 2 RACISTS!!!

A return ticket would do for them and their ilk, with @donlemon on the first boat to Liberia.

If reparations were really considered they would have to come from both Africa and Europe. I would also point out that nobody talks about Arab colonialism. Muslim nations are in Africa today yet the world is fixated on tiny Israel which makes up only 0.11% of the world's land. pic.twitter.com/j8nKQwmPU1

You realize 2 things can be true at once. You're correct but you have to ignore the fact that white ppl owned the vast majority of slaves as well. You have to ignore that being in the gop and being that you're their token black guy
 
i’ve been so far removed from the cooning i forgot it existed… have you no shame?? be fr

In fact, in Africa, we marched ourselves to the slave ships, and had women whose sole purpose was to birth little slaves to march up to the slave ships. #Revisionists
 
In reply to @VernonForGA
The slave trade started with kidnapping by the Portuguese not black people selling slaves that happened later and that still doesn’t account for the millions of black people born in the Americas who were slaves and never sold by another African.
 
People should block this guy.
 
In reply to @VernonForGA
We didn’t Sell Ourselves.

Smh you done let them take your testicles 😂😂😂😂
 
 
In reply to @VernonForGA
Actually it was the Spaniards or brown people who brought every slave to North and South America. The English colonies got slaves by pirating Spanish ships who were carrying slaves. British never did the slave trade. .
 
 
In reply to @VernonForGA
You are just as clueless as the interviewer and the interviewee. His question to her was about reparations for Colonialism not slave trade I guess you are unable to tell the difference between the two. Disappointed in @donlemon for having zero response to her nonsense
 
 
In reply to @VernonForGA
Still mad that Obama didn’t endorse your senate campaign huh.
 
 
In reply to @VernonForGA
Worth noting, england, Portugal and Spain were the human traffickers... As @VernonForGA said, they were willingly sold by their own people to the traffickers.
 
In reply to @VernonForGA
Barack and Harris soon be writing the checks.
 
In reply to @VernonForGA
You loss and your continuous pandering to become the “black best friend” isn’t working. STFU and go away already!
 
In reply to @VernonForGA
Like they just woke up and started selling slaves? Arabs, white people came with GUNS, killed black people easily, so what choice did they have?
 
In reply to @VernonForGA
There’s no in the America that’s absolves one from participating in a crime.
 
In reply to @VernonForGA
What about the Irish, statistically no other recognized nation had their population decimated so much by the direct actions of the British Empire looking specifically at the mid 19th century.
 
In reply to @VernonForGA
Did Africans Call them to Africa to come buy slaves or did they go there while Africans were on their own in Africa. F00L at 50

Just when I think humans have reached the apex of stupidity you find another vein to tap.🙄

Same thing with #Mexico how gave up all that land to the US? Santana look it up.
 
In reply to @VernonForGA
Actually it was the Spainiards who brought the slaves to South & North America . British pirated their slave ships for their gold. British slaves were not bought were pirated by mistake. British fought to stop the slave trade. So did many white Republicans during civil war.
 
Kamala Harris is Jamaican so yes she would and should
 
 
In reply to @VernonForGA
White slave masters got reparations. Why shouldn't the descendants of actual slaves get some?
 
In reply to @VernonForGA
What a stupid white racist bi*** There is only a supply of slaves if there is a demand for slaves you can't force anyone to purchase a slave. just like if there was no demand for drugs, you wouldn't be able to sale drugs. STOP it @CNN @donlemon, push back on that BS
 
In reply to @VernonForGA
Sorry to say but every race had slaves also African kings rounded up there people and sold them.! Historian spilled the beans on Don Lemon last night and on newsmaxx !!!
 
In reply to @VernonForGA
She's not correct. If we were talking about selling child sex slaves, we wouldn't say the buyers weren't culpable or we should give them a pass and only prosecute the sellers. BOTH parties owe reparations. Period.
 
In reply to @VernonForGA
Pretty sure Kamala isn't African

I want your position for holocaust….
 
In reply to @VernonForGA
Barack and Come-La are both descendants of slave owners. In addition there were 3,777 black slave owners. Their descendants are hiding in plain sight among ADOS. The most rabid black Democrats like @ElieNYC @esglaude @MichaelEDyson etc. could be descendants of black slave owners
 
 
Not only did they sell them, they were brutal on them while keeping them in cages
