BTW, I can barely stand to listen to this, and when I have control over the soundtrack, I don’t.

Heck!. I thought it was Mayor Ray Nagin’s “SS Chocolate City” ship, last seen looting New Orleans a few years ago.

Missed it by about only 150 years or so. “So close, but so far away”.

They so wanted this to be some slave ship so they could continue to go on and on and on about their victimhood. Their ancestors were a disgrace for human trafficking their own people.

I haven’t seen AL.com run with this story yet. I guess it’s not part of their agenda.

Can you imagine? There would be a bazillion dollar extraction, transport, ship restoration and museum ASAP, with the Obamas and Oprah at the grand opening. All American school kids would be required to make a pilgrimage to see it.

They were acting like it was some kind of holy ground.

The ones that broke the story, AL.com has yet to come out with the truth.

I am so damn sick of hearing about slavery. Jews were held captive and enslaved for many years. Muslims captured millions of Europeans and took them as slaves. Seems blacks are the only group that cannot just get to work and move past it?

Yes, isn’t 150 years long enough to let go?
No, because it’s used as a club to threaten and intimidate people by calling them racist.
I doubt 300 years will be enough, if the country still exists in the same form.
But you’re not allowed to ask a BLM-type, “Oh, when were YOU a slave? When were your parents slaves?”

I am somewhat surprised and pleased that they did not declare this wreck to be that particular ship, facts be damned. The historians must have been under intense political pressure. All one would have had to say was that it was possible (re. Sally Hemings), and it would have been trumpeted as a certainty!

These slave traders were Muslim conquerors doing what the Prophet instructed them to do. Today, Islam believes in Muslim Supremacy and Male Supremacy. The upend the Political Correct apple cart and the Left does not even notice.
