It was inevitable that the Black Reparations debate would ultimately shine a spotlight on those who profited the most from the 500-year destruction of Black civilization. The selective banning by Amazon of the Nation of Islam’s The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews book series was a clear indication of how skittish Jews have become about their exposure as major beneficiaries of the trans-Atlantic slave trade. And even as Jewish leaders move to cut off campus access to strong Black voices of Reparations, their own Jewish scholars continue to supply damning evidence of the Jewish role in Black slavery.
Dr. Harold Brackman wrote, “Jews were about twice as likely to be slave owners as the average white Southerner.” Rabbi Dr. Marc Lee Raphael, the longtime editor of the most prestigious of Jewish historical journals, the Publications of the American Jewish Historical Society, wrote of the slave trade that “in all the American colonies, whether French, British, or Dutch, Jewish merchants frequently dominated.” Jewish Encyclopedia: “[T]he cotton-plantations in many parts of the South were wholly in the hands of the Jews…” Dr. Michael R. Cohen wrote in his 2017 book Cotton Capitalists, that “Jews clustered in the cotton industry, and…became deeply enmeshed in the nation’s—and perhaps the world’s—most important industry.” A soon to be released book by Arizona State University professor Stanley Mirvis will confirm that Jamaican Jews were slave owners and dealers in alarming numbers.
And Blacks, “in alarming numbers,” are becoming more and more aware of this meticulously shrouded part of Black Holocaust history. Part of that awakening is due to the Nation of Islam’s 144-page book with the unambiguous title Jews Selling Blacks: Slave-Sale Advertising By American Jews. It is the largest collection ever published of the actual ads Jews placed in American newspapers for the sale of Black human beings. And it has proven to be the most dangerous to the mythology that upholds the fraudulent “Black–Jewish alliance.” It amounts to 144 pages of direct confessions of the most horrific racial crimes from the Jewish slave-dealers themselves!
In 2010, the Hon. Min. Louis Farrakhan was asked why he released the book, and he replied: “Anyone who reads the real truth of what has been done to us would be shocked at first by that knowledge. But it is something we must know in order that we will make sure that what our parents, grandparents and great grandparents suffered, we will never let it happen again.”
Jewish merchants from all over the world participated in the inhumane trade in Black human beings, often dominating some of the most important slave-trading markets. For instance, nine out of ten enslaved Africans were shipped to Brazil’s sugar plantations, where the Jewish presence was described by Dr. Arnold Wiznitzer:
“Besides their important position in the sugar industry…they dominated the slave trade….The buyers who appeared at the auctions were almost always Jews, and because of this lack of competitors they could buy slaves at low prices.”
Jews deny they dominated and monopolized the slave trade and use U.S. census records to diminish the role of Jews as major “owners” of Black human beings. This, however, is highly misleading. Not only were Jews twice as likely as the general population of American whites to own Africans—with many Jews having one or two slaves in their homes as domestics—but they were simultaneously retailing dozens, even hundreds of Africans at a time through their business enterprises. The 1830 census shows that all the Jews of Charleston, South Carolina, claimed to “own” a total of 104 Black human beings. But a single Charleston Jew, Jacob Cohen, on a single day in 1857, offered for sale “125 rice negroes”! That same year, the same Mr. Cohen teamed with a Gentile and advertised to sell almost twice that number—210—in a single day. As Jewish scholar Jonathan Schorsch wrote, “Jewish merchants routinely possessed enormous numbers of slaves temporarily before selling them off.” And none of those fiendish transactions are registered in the U.S. census. Today, for example, the family that owns Home Depot may have 1 or 2 refrigerators in their home, even as their stores and warehouses may have hundreds of thousands.
Jews are most implicated in slavery by their marketing of the products of slave labor such as cotton, tobacco, sugar, and rice; their supplying plantations with items of commerce and credit; and their buying and selling whole plantations along with the slaves. Jews—like Cohen & Alexander, Cohen & Moses, and Lewis B. Levy—are found serving the plantation slave masters: they are selling “negro jackets,” “negro shoes,” “negro clothes” and one A. Tobias is selling 7 bales of “American cloth for plantation Negroes.”
The language used in the slave advertisements by Jewish merchants reveals their total comfort with the horrors of Black slavery. Many of them, such as Rabbi Israel I. Jones and Rabbi Jacob Levin, actually served as high synagogue officials and pillars of the Jewish community. Rabbi Levin sold “22 likely Negroes” for “investment” purposes, he states in his ad. David Franks used terms like “Cargoes” of “Likely Negroes,” which were bought and sold alongside farm animals and furniture; shipping services are offered with “roomy accommodations for slaves”; insurance is offered for slave ships; “negro” and “mulatto” “wenches” are put on the auction block as “temptresses”—all these “bargains” publicly offered in paid ads by Jews in America’s city newspapers.
Whole “gangs of negroes”—some advertised “in families”—are publicly traded for pure profit. The image of an ad by Jacob Cohen & Son on the book’s front cover is a perverse example of a JEWISH FAMILY selling a BLACK FAMILY!
One Leah Minis has “Sundry Negro Slaves in families.” Jacob Cohen & Co. sells a plantation with a “gang of 60 Negroes, accustomed to the culture of cotton.” Abraham Cohen sells an estate “consisting of excellent field slaves.” He sells another property “consisting of some as prime negroes as any in the state, among whom are carpenters, sawyers, coopers, wheelwrights, and valuable house servants.” To be sold in an “estate sale” at the offices of Jacob Cohen & Son: “210 Negroes,” among which are “valuable carpenters, millwrights, engineers, coopers, mill hands, blacksmiths, boat hands and house servants.” Jacob De Leon sells “25 Africans,” consisting of “men, women, boys and girls.” Children 5-years-old, 9-years-old, 11, 16, 17, 2-months-old—even infants—are all sold without a trace of Jewish scruples. One advertises a “valuable family of field slaves,” including an “infant” and a “2-year old” (both of whom the Jewish dealer already determined to be “field slaves”).
A. Seixas, “broker,” offered a special deal to sellers: he would not charge for the temporary lodging of “sucking children of negroes sent to [him to] sell.” In another ad Seixas actually uses poetry to attract buyers in which he guarantees that his Black products will “work the rice, Or bring them to the lash.” Levy Jacobs offered 100 “prime Virginia slaves,” but later had to take out an ad to rebut rumors that he was instead fraudulently selling “Kentucky slaves.”
Freedom-seeking self-emancipated Blacks are branded “runaways” and doggedly pursued through newspaper notices: Nathan Hart chased a Black woman for years, advertising for the return of “my negro girl” when she was 25 and again when she was 31. Other Jews captured and held “runaways” for the bounty. The #MeToo and Women’s March movements should be aware that at least 24 of these Jewish men advertised Black women and girls as “WENCHES.”
The Jewish slave-dealers distinguish whether their Black human chattel are “colored” or “mulatto,” foreign-born Africans or native-born “negroes,” and much of this Black merchandise is “warranted” “sober and honest,” “of good character,” and documented as having made no attempts to run away. One group of Blacks “for sale” is advertised—like an automobile—to have had just one previous owner. A Jewish slave-broker offered special payment terms for “negroes” like furniture—payable in one year. Jews Selling Black slaves on layaway! Long before the Nazis forced Jews to wear yellow stars, Jewish police in America required that Blacks have “slave badges.” Isaac Barrett seeking his “runaway negro wench” informs the public in an ad that she had badge #2090, proving that she was his property.
Reparations—as with the “reparations” the Israelis continue to receive for the crimes of Nazis—will ultimately be made to the descendants of the Black victims of this 500-year human tragedy by those who profited from such untold misery. The Jews who scream “anti-Semitism” at every mention of their racist past are merely standing up for their ancestors who bought and sold human beings without a trace of mercy. These are the historical “hate crimes” that made Jews the wealthiest of all American whites. What the ADLs and the SPLCs can never stomach is that The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, our Champion, stands for all those sold as mere merchandise in those Jewish advertisements—the “wenches,” the “field negroes,” the “prime, choice negroes,” the “sucking children,” the “runaways”—to at last bring them Justice.
