America’s Breeding Farms: What History Books Never Told You (226 hits)


America’s Breeding Farms: What History Books Never Told You

In 1808, America banned the import of slaves from Africa and the West Indies. The impact on actual slavery in America was almost non-existent. There was still some limited smuggling of slaves but the majority of new slaves in America came from what Professor Eric Foner called, “natural increase.” One could reasonably ask, “Why ban slave imports and not slavery itself?” The answer is because, for many of the proponents of the prohibition including Thomas Jefferson, the reason was not based on humanitarian concerns but on economics. The South was producing and selling enough slaves internally that the slave trade was reducing prices for slaves and cutting into profits.

In 1819, another act was passed allowing US ships to not only patrol its own shores but the coast of Africa in an attempt to stop slave ships at the source. Not for concerns about ending slavery but in protectionism for American slave owners. Everything was contingent on the fact that there was a “self-sustaining” population of about four million slaves in America at the time. Southern legislators joined with northern ones in passing both the acts that banned the external slave trading but ignored slavery.

Most of us are aware that slave owners often bred their slaves to produce more workers. We are taught almost nothing about the breeding farms whose function was to produce as many slaves as possible for the sale and distribution throughout the South to meet their needs. Two of the largest breeding farms were located in Richmond, VA, and the Maryland Eastern-Shore.

As far as cities I’ve never lived in, I’ve spent as much time in Richmond, VA as anywhere. I traveled there multiple times a year, often for a few days or a week at a time. Richmond is serious about most of its history. I’ve visited the Edgar Allen Poe Museum. Monument Avenue contains several statues mostly of Confederate Civil War heroes; Stonewall Jackson, Jefferson Davis, J.E.B. Stuart and Robert E. Lee are honored there as is the late African-American tennis star Arthur Ashe who was from Richmond. In August 2017, Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney said Richmond would consider the “potential removal” of the statues glorifying the legacy of the South after issues raised in nearby conflicts and protests involving white supremacists. One major part of Richmond’s history is barely remembered, hardly spoken of and taught publicly nowhere.

Richmond is a port city and exported between 10,000 to 20,000 slaves a month to states further south and west. Slavery, not tobacco was Virginia’s primary domestic crop. You may have seen scenes of slaves being offloaded in New Orleans for example. They were more likely to have come from Richmond around Florida than from Africa.

You never hear the names of the industry leaders, Robert Lumpkin ran his “jail” which was a compound surrounded by a 12-foot fence with iron spikes. Should a slave escape, by law, The Fugitive Slave Act guaranteed they would be returned courtesy of the Federal government. The slave population of the breeding farm was mostly women and children not old enough to be sold, and a limited number of men whose job was to impregnate as many slave women as possible. The slaves were often given hoods or bags over their heads to keep them from knowing who they were having forced s*x with. It could be someone they know, perhaps a niece, aunt, sister, or their own mother. The breeders only wanted a child that could be sold.

Richmond also had five railroads. Slaves could be shipped both by rail and boat which allowed slaves to arrive in better condition and thus fetch a higher price. Slavery was more than man’s inhumanity towards man. It was always about economics. Cheap labor that allowed America to compete with other nations. Much of America was literally built on slavery. Texas schoolbooks are now trying to make it sound not quite so bad. The breeding farms receive no mention at all.

I like to highlight this paragraph:

Good Morning ****** HARRY, I see that you still can't talk to me on the same blog because you know you can't face the truth. So let's take a look at your words.

YOUR WORDS: Let me be clear the breeding process that made Black Americans a NEW race is my thunder not Mr. Ron’s! (2 hits) There was no such thing as breeding farms that the slave masters came and buy slaves. That is a lie and mis-leading.

MY REPLY: HARRY I have evidence to the FACT that Slave Breeding Farms did exist. All I did was to type in the search engine: " slave breeding farms " and here's what I found. https://www.bing.com/search?q=slave+breeding+farms&form=EDGTCT&qs=PF&cvid=ae3ed3251f4141a8b7cdba0dfb4a33d2&refig=b25e444b64014af1b297306daad88352&cc=US&setlang=en-US&elv=AY3%21uAY7tbNNZGZ2yiGNjfM5LqA4AIhj5gKzh7Ds5XefhWuXnwTZIdfTlM1BKU8i8K*rV*lU6mjjZqufAKMM%21%21VVWl9pNLUwbqOu619E5ux3&plvar=0

Here we will find more evidence that you have been BUSTED FOR PROMOTING THAT LIE.

YOUR WORDS: It was called the breeding PROCESS. It started on the slave ships leaving Africa. A pregnant African would sell for more English pounds. Those that weren’t pregnant when they got to the slave-master’s plantation the White overseers would immediately impregnate the other females.

MY REPLY: That was rape that happened on those slave ships leaving Africa and it is true the pregnant African would sell for more English pounds for this one time journey.

YOUR WORDS: The male slaves were not allowed to mate unless they got the slave-master’s permission to marry. The slave-masters were devout Christians.

HARRY: Most of Black Americans are aware that slave owners often bred their your Black slaves to produce more workers because slavery was a big, money making industry.

Did you know that When enslaved males turned 15 years old–and younger in some cases–they had their first inspection. Boys who were under-developed, had their testicles castrated and sent to the market or used on the farm. Each enslaved male was expected to get 12 females pregnant a year. The men were used for breeding for five years. One enslaved man name Burt produced more than 200 offspring, according to the Slave Narratives.

According to the Slave Narratives, When enslaved males turned 15 years old–and younger in some cases–they had their first inspection. Boys who were under-developed, had their testicles castrated and sent to the market or used on the farm. Each enslaved male was expected to get 12 females pregnant a year. The men were used for breeding for five years. One enslaved man name Burt produced more than 200 offspring.

Now that young Black Slave was used to get 12 Black females pregnant a year and that male slave was used for that purpose for five years.

HARRY, let's do the math: 12 X 5 = 60 children, now this was mandatory, now what weak ass Slave owner, FATHERED 60 STRONG BLACK SLAVES FOR THE FIELDS? Where is your evidence, since you want to talk about the breeding process of our recent ancestry?

YOUR WORDS: All the slave-masters institutionalize this breeding process until Pres. Lincoln outlawed plantation slavery. By then the slave population was over 22 million and that is a NEW race of people without a country of our own.

All Black Americans at the base of our family tree is the slave-master’s DNA.

MY REPLY: The Black/African American population is one of the most unique groups in the United States. Almost all descendants of American slaves are mixed with some European and Native American blood.

Henry Louis Gates, Jr., (Alphonse Fletcher University Professor and Director of the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research at Harvard University) published an article after consulting five genealogical DNA testing/research companies answering the question “How much African ancestry does the average African American have?” The results are as follows.

Company Ancestry.com

Sub-Sahara African 65%
European 29%
Native American 2%
Other 4%



23andme.com
Sub-Sahara African 75%
European 22%
Native American.06%
Other 3%

National Geographic’s Genographic Project
Sub-Sahara African 80%
European 19%

Don't you understand that 19% don't over rule 80% of nothing.

That means with scientific proof that THE BLACK AMERICAN is "NOT" a new race of people because if you was correct, their would be NO Sub-Sahara African blood line at all. Don't you see that HARRY?


YOUR WORDS: The bus driver Mr. Ron had solidly believed that Black Americans were the biblical Black Hebrew people until I told him about the breeding process that made Black Americans a NEW, a NEW, a NEW race of people and therefore could not any damn biblical Hebrew people.

MY REPLY: That is a LIE. What I have provided you with over 10 pages of evidence proving the connection that The Black American ancestry is connected to The Original Hebrews of the Holy Bible that BUST this BULL💩 that you are promoting.

1. That the Holy Bible is a White Man's religion because he is nowhere to be found and the sad part about that was, you could not tell of one white prophet, not one when asked you said was white in The Holy Bible.

2. I just BUST that BULL💩 that you are promoting, about Mr. Ron is extremely STUPID. that my Black American people including him are a NEW race of people.

HARRY, I just prove you WRONG AS HELL on that BULL💩 of your, that the Black American is a NEW RACE OF PEOPLE through DNA testing and the FACT, if we was a new race of people, we Black American's would NOT have any traces of SUB-SAHARAN black Line what so ever.

That, what ever came to you was NOT The Most God who came to you because his word is proven to be real and not this mess that you are promoting HARRY.

That is another reason why you won't talk to me on the same blog, is because you know for a FACT that you are promoting LIES.
