40 ACRES AND A MULE

14 Signatures Goal: 100

By June 1865, around 10,000 freed slaves were settled on 400,000 acres (160,000 ha) in Georgia and South Carolina. Soon after, President Andrew Johnson reversed the order and returned the land to its white former owners. DO YOU BELIEVE BLACKS SHOULD BE COMPINSATED FOR THERE LAND!

    A lot of africans suffered and several slaves died. The abuse and kidnapping from their native land should have been ill legal. The Africans were always human beings and it was a crime against humanity. President Lincoln knew that and that is why the plantation land was gave to the slaves, once Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves. Words cant express the cruelty and racial hate the first settlers did to all african american ancestors.some say they dont think its fair to pay for their ancestors past, andi say how could you feel that way ? The family fortune you have ,has a debt that must be paid.
