Due to the magnitude of this topic, this blog will be divided into two parts, the first part will analyze slavery and its definitions while the second part will further the discussion by exposing the current blanket under which slavery is hidden or kept in plain sight, to put some perspect

Slavery is the act of illegally and forcefully taking an individual and forcing the victim to do things that even animals would not do, an act of unrestricted abuse, destruction, and termination of human lives without the consent or any agreements from the abused.
Today´s world narratives make us understand the cruelty of these barbaric acts and also that such practices have been abolished but is slavery actually over?

Recently the government of the United States of America announced a new addition to the list of the government-recognized holiday known as the Juneteen, Juneteen marks the date the last remaining slaves in America were freed in  Galveston, Texas, hence the residence of Texas have since been observing the date.

so you think you can tell, Heaven from Hell, Blue skies from pain,
Can you tell a green field From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil? Do you think you can tell?

Let us consider some of the 10 key attributes and characteristics of slavery(A.K.A the ten commandments of slavery):
1) you have no rights, not even over your own body
2) you are not free to move from one place to another
3) you are completely a tool for your master and one of you will be used as a tool to punish the others.
4) you have no future.
5) you are not allowed to own property or properties.
6) you are found guilty before proven otherwise.
7) your life does not matter.
8) your children are not your own.
9) you are a lab rat for any and all experiments.
10) your abusers are always glorified.

Let´s start:

1) you have no rights, not even over your own body

At the pick of slavery, a slave woman was raped by her owner at will, even there were stories of white men using their dogs to rape black women, maim them or even kill them.
Long after the era of slavery was announced over the practice still continued, for example, in Austria, the white men rape black and indigenous women, get them pregnant and forcefully take the children into islands to be used as servants and abused all over again.

But alas, the case of white oppression of black women and sexual misappropriation went on in even some countries in Africa, one of the most noticeable of them happened in South Africa and today is evident in the Bonteheuwel township.
The cruelest of these till date in records was in Europe under Nazi-Germany where the white men rape Jewish and  black women mostly from  Eastern African descent, lock them up until the birth time and while the black women are in the birth process they bind their legs closed and watched the outcome ( apparently it was claimed for scientific purposes), well who cares it's just a black woman right? WRONG!!!

For black men, hell was better than slavery, for example, In Africa, the white men would chop off the wrists of the black men to see if it is deadly and later boast about watching him die.
Castration of black men was also a practice mostly when the white man wants to or is using the wife of the Blackman as his own personal sex doll, or even worst using his wife and daughter simultaneously.
Even the devil could not compete with this level of cruelty that has any gruesome thought you could imagine and more.
The slave or rather let's call them here black men, were used for target practice, oh and lease I forget the black men when they got old were at times decommissioned, that does not mean retired but rather executed for not being able to plow the fields.
Ok ok, I understand those days are gone or are they really?

In 1932 600 black men from Macon County, Alabama was enlisted to partake in a scientific experiment on syphilis, OMG did I just write syphilis? Yes you read it right but listen to the aim behind this cruelty

“observe the natural history of untreated syphilis” in black populations.

But the subjects were unaware of this and were simply told they were receiving treatment for bad blood. Actually, they received no treatment at all. Even after penicillin was discovered as a safe and reliable cure for syphilis, the majority of men did not receive it.
Recently it also came to light that black men that went to the Vietnam war returned back home junkies courtesy of the United States military, once again the black man has no rights to claim over that horrific situation of leaving your home a normal person and returning home a drug-addict, sure but who cares? WE DO !!!

During the building of Jebba, Kainji, and shiroro dams in Nigeria, reports came out (first-hand accounts ) that the companies that were contracted by the world bank to build those dams used labor mostly from the northern parts of Nigeria.
It recently came to light from a very high source within the project group that the workers from the northern parts of Nigeria were injected with ANIMAL PERFORMANCE ENHANCING DRUGS to make them work more than it's humanly possible.
Obviously, the consequences of the drugs resulted in impediments, pains, and in some cases death due to overdose of the administered drugs, but the same as the slaves in the past, these men had and still have no claims for the health damages caused.

I understand that some of these stories seem too hard to hear or believe but check out the next, Abdullahi v. Pfizer, Inc. A case that the slavers company Pfizer 1996 conducted drug trials in Kano state Nigeria killing over 1200 children, yes Nigerian children, yes black children, yes they were not informed of its danger and yes they offered to pay money for killing black children.
If lives can be bought why don't they use white children for such things and pay their families afterward? oh sorry, only slaves have no rights over their own body, so once again is slavery truly over?

In the united kingdom, 4 out of 5 black families have either had runnings with the child protection agency or have had one or more of their children taken away from them and given to white families who have no children of their own, this is real and it happens up till date, they come with some fake excuse of child abuse while the white people´s children can be sexually abused by their sick parents.
A journey across Africa would totally astonish you on the level of abuse, experiments, and killings done by white men on black, just a simple question here, can Africans get a license to travel and hunt for gaming in Europe and maybe kill some of their animals for sport making selfies over the dead animal? I would expect African countries to charge white people who go to Africa to destroy our nature and wildlife with murder and jailed in African jails too.

2) you are not free to move from one place to another.

Police, the most universally hated organization in the world and for a very good reason, do you know that the police today evolved from regional slave owners task force charged with hunting down runaway slaves back in the time of slavery? well, now you know it.
Slaves in the past were not allowed to travel, to visit other slaves in their homes, even slaves were not allowed to go to markets alone without a slave owner nearby, at least one of the attributes of slavery has ended, or has it?


In modern days the implementation of the Visa system is used to replace the presence of slave owners, for example, African students studying in Europe and America you must be very aware of the ways that your school always reminds you of your student residency if you do not agree with any issue in the school, well that is a softer restriction. In a deadly case of restriction, Ahmaud Arbery a 25-year-old black man was shot to death by three white men for the crime of jogging through a predominantly white neighborhood, pointing to the second rule of slavery, not being able to move freely no matter when.

3) you are completely a tool for your master and one of you will be used as a tool to punish the others.


Over a million African soldiers were drafted to fight in the so-called second world war (so-called because the world at that time was Europe and America) because none of the African countries opted in to fight or even had any reason to join in.
In a recent interview of surviving black men who fought in that white-man war and later abandoned by the white men, they all said they were FORCED sometimes brutally, sometimes their families were punished, used as Ransome to force them into the fight.
They told horrifying tales of being gaged beating and forced to take the bullets by their slave masters oh sorry colonial masters-- they both actually are one and the same anyways. Well, that all happened in the past right? wrong !!!

Black men were forcibly drafted into the united states military during the Vietnam wars thus prompting the change of name and religion of one very popular cassius clay(Muhammad Ali) with the famous quote;
“Why should they ask me to put on a uniform and go 10,000 miles from home and drop bombs and bullets on Brown people in Vietnam while so-called Negro people in Louisville are treated like dogs and denied simple human rights? No I’m not going 10,000 miles from home to help murder and burn another poor nation simply to continue the domination of white slave masters of the darker people the world over. This is the day when such evils must come to an end. I have been warned that to take such a stand would cost me millions of dollars. But I have said it once and I will say it again. The real enemy of my people is here. I will not disgrace my religion, my people, or myself by becoming a tool to enslave those who are fighting for their own justice, freedom, and equality. If I thought the war was going to bring freedom and equality to 22 million of my people they wouldn’t have to draft me, I’d join tomorrow. I have nothing to lose by standing up for my beliefs. So I’ll go to jail, so what? We’ve been in jail for 400 years.”
― Muhammad Ali (may you find peace in eternity)

Just when the black man thinks he has a strategy to resist slavery the white man brings a new trick out, the latest is the level of poverty in so-called slave countries and peoples, for example, the fastest way for a black man in America to escape poverty is to join the US marines or go to war, so once again FORCING BLACK MEN to fight because of your financial incentives while white men are given loads of money to start off their dream businesses.
The part I find even more disgusting is when a black man is killed by a white man then a black man is pulled out from some closet and then he is used to fooling the angry black men into accepting the white man´s narratives again and again.
