Today we’re going to talk about the founding of America. Many of the biased and oppressive laws we see today are linked back to The Slave Codes and founding of America.
- What did Europeans see when they first arrived?
- Are black people natives to America?
- What were the Slave Codes?
- Why does the Democrat party still embrace some of the slave codes?
- Why does the American justice system still embrace some of the slave codes?
Don’t miss this episode as we continue our journey into the truth about America.
“And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.” – Luke 4:5-7
What did Europeans see when they landed in America?
- Not black natives.
- The first slaves arrived in 1619
- The camera was invented in 1816
- The earliest image I’ve found is from 1878 (259 years later)
- Emancipation proclamation 1863
- Slaves had been free for 15 years before the pictures were being taken.

- 3rd verse celebrates the return of slavery.
“And where is that band who so vauntingly swore,
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a Country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash’d out their foul footstep’s pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.”
- 1815 – the war ends and all freed slaves have to be returned to slavery.
