Mapping Virginia's Slave Dwellings: Preserving Black History with Street View 5

In the Virginia state record, only 1% of documented historical sites are categorized as having any African-American historical significance. It’s easy to visit historic sites from the era of slavery and forget the enslaved men, women and children who built and maintained these places. Using Street View, Virginia Humanities has been collecting panoramic imagery of slave dwellings across the state for everyone to see. They hope these images will add to a more inclusive history of Virginia and helps us remember that enslaved peoples were integral to our country’s founding.

I'd really like to know where in the hell they went to school that they think people were taught that slavery "wasn't that bad"?? We were taught the atrocities that those people endured and the utter brutality... the first time I was shown a picture of the kkk i was in third grade and it made my skin crawl. My school and teachers were brutally honest with us... we learned about slavery before almost any other history, and in my opinion that was the right thing to do.

Judgement coming to America and other countries who stole and enslaved Negroes aka Hebrews (Amos 9:8, " Behold, the eyes of the Lord GOD are upon the sinful kingdom, and I will destroy it from off the face of the earth; saving that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob, saith the LORD." Repent and turn to God or burn as this prophesy is given to America and other places that the Hebrews were forced iinto slavery through the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. The NEgroes aka HEbrews are clearly described in Deut. 28:15-68 because they disobeyed their God, Yah, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. And after 400 years of being oppressed by various nations, including America, God is now on their side again. So watch out.
Yahushua's Call - Series: Yahuah Speeks: 400 Years: "Let My People Go." When God gets through with America, the non-Hebrew people are going really realize the mistake they made in not giving reparations to those who worked free as chattle enslaved people for slavery.

This slave woman's soul is at the throne of the HEbrews' God altar (Revelation 6:10) as well as the other Hebrews killed in the process of being captured in Africa, on the way to the slave ships, on the way to their land of enslavement, and the frequent Hebrews that are referred as African Americans who are unjustly murdered on a daily basis in America. America has had 400 years to repent but has refused. Now they will feel the wrath of God, the Creator of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

Slavery was unprofitable because they had to be housed and fed so they started paying there workers to get lost at the end of the day instead lol



One serious question to the staff at Google. why does the pogram shutdown everytime I try to checck which cities align with the Ka'aba through the temple mount it shuts off? why does it take such a long time for the name al Aqsa to appear when i try to zoom in? aren'T Muslims aloud to look uo Islams holy site? and why has YouTube shutdown and censored several Islamic channels, despite them nnot spreading any hatred or terrorism, or violence. you guys have serious m issues.
