I don’t blame white people for slavery – I blame blacks and Muslims for slavery!

Ted Hayes contends that the real villains when it comes to slavery were the Blacks and the Muslims in Africa, not the white man. He says that the slave trade was going on long before Britain and subsequently America got involved. In fact, he credits America for abolishing slavery and says that the civil war was the “high water mark of humanity.”

Wow! I love this guy!

    I wonder what the Black Panthers think of the slavery that still goes on in 3rd world countries.

  • Goldni007

    Well he's right to an extent. The slave trade inside the Islamic empire was vast. The Arabs kept mostly women slaves as black men were seen largely as a potential threat.

  • Something smells very fishy— maybe not what he says, but how he says it……Seems like he was put up to this and doesn't come across as trustworthy. To me it almost seems like he is acting.

  • Facts you need to know 1-Whites never captured slaves,Waring native cheiftians sold there captives to european on west coast. Muslims did hunt, capture and buy natives from east coast and did so for 1,000 years. 2- south america imported 8 times as many blacks as north america.3-In 1850 ca. 1.4% of whites owned slaves 23% of black freeman owned one or more slaves. 2nd richest man in Louisiana was black and owned 200 slaves on his plantation.4-Post civil war south occupied by union army, all public office's held by blacks & yankees all corupt extorting white population and offered no protection from roaming gangs of black and white crininals resulting in whites forming org. to protect family & property. Please investigate this for yourself.

  • An “articulate” guy…

    100% concurrence with Ted Hayes and his brief history of the black slave trade having been started by Muslim slave traders… selling black captives “to” whites in Europe.

    Concomitant with whites accepting slavery into Europe is the opposition of other whites who eventually fought in Parliament against the British slave trade.

    An excellent movie is “Amazing Grace,” the true story of William Wilberforce and, from the DVD back cover, “… how one man's passion and perseverance changed the world.”

    A minister and personal friend of Wilberforce was John Newton, a reformed slave ship captain, and author of the hymn “Amazing Grace.” In the movie, Newton is portrayed by Albert Finney.

    Wow, is this interesting. The speaker, Ted Hayes, mentions a new “book” by Henry Lewis Gates, a famous and accomplished academic. My first search result is to a NYT article entitled, “Ending the Slavery Blame-game”. The article, (linked below) makes the same point as Mr. Hayes, (less the Muslim connection)…Western African nations are guilty of capturing and selling at least 12.5 million Africans from as few as 50 genetically identifiable people groups between 1514 and 1866. Or they are at least as guilty as the European traders who purchased them.
    This article received public condemnation in the form of a protest letter signed by more than 31 academics and leaders of the reparitions community including….you guessed it…Jeremiah Wright!

    …Then I start to wonder (ala Beck)….where have I heard that name before….
    Gates……accomplished academic…..professor at Harvard. ! Oh that's right, this is the same Professor Gates who, after police received an 'anonymous' tip, was arrested for trying to enter his own home. (After returning from a trip to China….while the cat's away, the mice can plot a run-in with Cambridge police)
    After a little digging we find that Dr. Gates is an eminently qualified scholar in African Literature and African studies. But too bad for Dr. Gates…He came to the wrong conclusion….a well documented conclusion that contradicts the assertions of the……the social justice movement.
    It's starting to look like the 'Police acted stupidly' moment was an intentional script to paint the good Doctor as a 'black man can't get a break' victim. This coming from a man who wrote in his own memoir, Colored People: To his eventual embarrassment, he wrote in his Yale application, “As always, whitey now sits in judgment of me, preparing to cast my fate. It is your decision either to let me blow with the wind as a nonentity or to encourage the development of self. Allow me to prove myself.” Professor Gates regrets the language he used in his Yale application, saying, “I wince at the rhetoric today, but they let me in.”

    I think I'm interested in the message the Administration wanted to stifle by beer summit in upcoming book by Dr. Gates, “Tradition and the Black Atlantic: Critical Theory in the African Diaspora”


  • Pam

    Who is this guy? What are his credentials? Where did he get his information? Who is the interviewer? What is the occasion of this interview? Let's get some context here. Beck has been trying to tell the truth about Black American history, and some of that agrees with this. On 'Who Do You Think You Are,' football player Emmett Smith discovered that his Black African ancestors were sold into slavery by other Blacks, so I find some credibility in the assertion that the slavers weren't all white.

  • RS, a million thanks for posting this, it will give me a lot to study and hopefully i'll learn something! BTW for others, this man's YT account is tedhayesjr

  • kimlions

    He has a website, and he is for real go check it out.

  • kimlions

    I hope Beck has this guy on, I went to his website and was impressed.

  • Goldni007

    Black slaves were brought into the Islamic world by a number of routes- from West Africa across the Sahara to Morocco and Tunisia, from Chad across the desert to Libya, from East Africa down the Nile to Egypt (there were tons of Arab slave dealers in Cairo). While there are tens of millions of descendents of slaves left in the Americas, there are practically none left in the Mulism world (outside Africa). Anyone want to guess why that is?

    • Kdjsdajnjn

      You are wrong!!! The whites just star

  • Look its a good “video” with a lot of statisics

  • Jaynie59

    He's right about the abolishment of slavery being a high point for humanity. Liberals don't think like that because their first impulse is always to blame America first for anything, so of course they can't give America credit for anything, either. It's just how they think. Well, what passes for thought.

    If you really think about it, it's a pretty amazing feat. Less than a hundred years after it was founded, the United States outlawed slavery.

  • MaureenTabor

    It is wonderful how he calls the Civil War the Great War because it was the war to unite us in equality of each human, a war fought by whites and won when blacks joined whites to fight the rebels in a fight for our unity and for the freedom of each person. Blacks fought on both sides towards the end of the war, but of course mostly with The Yanks. If people took the time to understand the Civil War and what Lincoln did to hold us together as free individuals, the world would be a better place. It is a paradox: There must be collective unity to guard independence and freedom of the individual. When this war was finally over, men from both “sides” ran towards each other and embraced in tears! ! ! ! We hated fighting each other. Read the great “Battle Cry for Freedom” James M McPherson.

  • KeninMontana

    Thanks for the link,well worth checking out.

  • KeninMontana

    Something else that is often overlooked and not spoken of too widely are the raids by Barbary Pirates (Muslims) on the coastal towns and villages of England and Ireland and those people that were taken captive and sold into slavery in North African slave markets. It appears these folks were none too particular about the sources of their slaves. Actions like these,particularly raids upon American flagged ships brought about Jefferson's sending the US Navy and Marines to deal with this and is also where the “Shores of Tripoli” reference in the Marine Corps Hymn originates.

  • Josie

    “Amazing Grace” movie is one of the best movies ever.

  • Josie

    About five + years ago Dr. Gates did a documentaty on tracing his family roots and to get information on the slave trade. One question was about stories he heard through the years that it was warring tribes and not the white man, as they have always been told, that went into the brush to capture people to sell to slave traders. To his amazement the story was confirmed by a historian when he got to the Ivory Coast. I don't recall any mention of a Muslim connection but makes sense. He has also mentioned this in his other series where he has researched other African American family history.

  • Josie

    Thanks rs, this clip is important to get out to the African American community especially to wake up the younger generation that they are being used and lied to..

  • Dittos Josie…

    Also, the 2003 “Luther” version is informative and inspiring re: “… how one man's passion and perseverance changed the world”… although the Roman Catholic Church disagreed at the time of the 16th century reformation.

    Another inspiring true story movie is Ingrid Bergman's 1958 “The Inn of the Sixth Happiness.”

    Ingrid portrays an English parlor maid who goes to China to become a missionary… and, from the DVD back cover, “… her greatest accomplishment is leading 100 homeless children to safety across enemy-held terrain during Japan's invasion of china.”


  • Josie

    Hi Art, I don't recall the 2003 version of Luther but I have seen earlier versions. I have seen “The Inn of the Sixth Happiness” several times though the last time was many years ago. As I remember it was full of action and suspense and a tear jerker and a satisfying end. When movies were entertaining and told a story worth the time and money spent watching and most of the time you learned something from them.

    • Katie Yoo

      I don”t Blame the blacks, I blame the whites! It was because they used African people and they didn’t even do anything to them. They were living their own ways. Then the American came and just started beating them and treating them like trash. Like they are nothing. It’s not right. Who would do this to these poor people? Even children, they got beaten. If you got beaten, treated like trash, got little to eat, and just was tired and did everything? How would you feel? Not happy. After they used the Indians, they just said found the Africans, threw them onto a ship all bunched together, and didn’t know who these people were. Slavery to the Africans is the white’s fault. And I tell you, it still is happening. People of all races. They are still getting beaten and this and that. Slavery was the white’s fault. The Africans just wanted to be left alone. And Its going to stay that way.

  • Dittos Maureen…

    America fought a “great war” to counter the negative influence that started in the 7th century slave trade… on the Arabian Peninsula… and throughout the Middle East and North Africa.

    As an academician, Maureen, you will probably appreciate this (…very long) Stop Islamisation Of Europe article about Henri Pirenne’s “Mohammed et Charlemagne” (1938) about Muhammad, Islam and the Dark Ages in Europe.

    Something similar is happening in America… and possibly another “great war” is in it's nascent stage here.

    From the 2nd and 3rd paragraphs of the SIOE article…

    “… Gold coinage disappears and the great cities go into terminal decline.
    “Within a generation, Europe is in the middle of a Dark Age.
    “The light of classical civilization is utterly and completely extinguished.

    “What, Pirenne mused, could have caused such a total and dramatic disintegration?
    “The conclusion he reached was almost as dramatic as the civilizational collapse he described.
    “It was, to use Pirenne’s own phrase, explainable in one word:

    “It can have been no coincidence, argued Pirenne, that all the luxury items of Near Eastern origin, which were commonplace in western Europe until the early seventh century, suddenly disappear in the middle of that same century – just at the moment Islam spread throughout the Middle East and North Africa.

    “Islamic war and piracy must have closed the Mediterranean to all trade and strangled the economy of western Europe.

    Further down in the article…

    “Constantinople herself, the mighty million-strong capital of the East, was reduced, by the middle of the eighth century, to a veritable ruin.

    “… And the break-off point in Byzantium, as in the West, is the first half of the seventh century – precisely corresponding to the arrival on the scene of the Arabs and of Islam.

    “Even Glick [… the author whom the SIOE Sitemaster is critiquing] must be aware of the fact that the only trade linking the Islamic world with southern Europe in the tenth century was the slave trade!

    “Why is this information suppressed?”

    Well, enough from me… read more here.

    No one doubts that slavery was practiced worldwide..and yes, muslims are implicated as are others. BUT, that does not excuse the fact, that the slaves bought were forced to change their names and brain washed into christianity. We are talking about a modern western culture..only 100 years ago! What do you think the Americans did to the Indians that were here way before they arrived. What do you think the Brits did to the Aborigines in Australia. So, during the S.African apartheid era, when blacks were more or less slaves, it was the Jews that helped S.Africa. Where were the white nations…where were the trade embargos, where was the pressure.. No book, whether the Bible, Tora or Quran sanctions the use of slavery…you can’t say it’s Islam, it’s individuals. During Britains occupation of India, food was diverted to British soldiers and locals were left to starve. Yes, and they could only do this by using money and influence on local marajah’s. And, it was Churchill, when he was told that many people in India are dying of starvation, who said, then “why had Ghandi not died yet, they can’t be that hungry”…and we use famous quotes from him..wow

    Slavery was prominent presumably elsewhere in Africa long before the beginnings of the transatlantic slave trade. The maritime town of Lagos, Portugal, was the first slave market created in Portugal for the sale of imported African slaves – the Mercado de Escravos, opened in 1444. In 1441, the first slaves were brought to Portugal from northern Mauritania. By 1552 black African slaves made up 10 percent of the population of Lisbon. In the second half of the 16th century, the Crown gave up the monopoly on slave trade and the focus of European trade in African slaves shifted from import to Europe to slave transports directly to tropical colonies in the Americas – in the case of Portugal, especially Brazil. In the 15th century one third of the slaves were resold to the African market in exchange of gold.
    Spain had to fight against the relatively powerful civilizations of the New World. The Spanish conquest of the indigenous peoples in the Americas included using the Natives as forced labour, part of the wider Atlantic slave trade. The Spanish colonies were the first Europeans to use African slaves in the New World on islands such as Cuba and Hispaniola,
