“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

- Reagan

Someone sent this important piece of history to me recently, and I regret I can’t find who it was to give a “hat-tip” to them. Well, it was originally posted by Daniel Wissert. This information I’m about to share is confirmation that knowing our history is incredibly important. If we forget our history, we are bound to repeat the same mistakes. 

A relative informed me that one of my forefathers came to America as an Irish slave, so this article took on an extra special meaning to me. Here is what I’ve learned:

The Irish slave trade began when 30,000 Irish prisoners were sold as slaves to the New World. The King James I Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners to be sent overseas and sold to English settlers in the West Indies. By the mid 1600s, the Irish were the man slaves sold to Antigua and Montserrat.

At that time, 70% of the total population of Montserrat were Irish slaves. Ireland quickly became the biggest source of human livestock for English merchants. Most of the early slaves to the New World were actually white. From 1641 to 1652 over 500,000 Irish were killed by the English and another 300,000 were sold as slaves. Ireland’s population fell from about 1,500,000 to 600,000 in one single decade.

Families were ripped apart as the British did not allow Irish fathers to take their wives and children with them across the Atlantic. This led to a helpless population of homeless women and children. Britain’s solution was to auction them off as well. During the 1600s over 100,000 Irish children between the ages of 10 and 14 were taken from their parents and sold as slaves in the West Indies.

Virginia and New England in this decade. 52,000 Irish (mostly women and children) were sold to Barbados and Virginia. Another 30,000 Irish men and women were also transported and sold to the highest bidder. In 1656 Cromwell ordered that 2000 Irish children be taken to Jamaica and sold as slaves to English settlers.

Many people today will avoid calling the Irish slaves what they truly were. Slaves. They'll come up with terms like “indentured servants” to describe the plight of the Irish. However, in most cases from the 17th and 18th centuries, Irish slaves were nothing more than human cattle. 

As an example, the African slave trade was just beginning during this same period. It is well recorded that African slaves, not tainted with the stain of the Catholic theology and more expensive to purchase were often treated far better than their Irish counterparts. 

African slaves were very expensive during the late 1600s (50 Sterling). Irish slaves came cheap (no more than 5 Sterling).

If a planter whipped or branded or beat and Irish slave to death, it was never a crime. A death was a monetary setback, but far cheaper than killing a more expensive African. The English masters quickly began breeding the Irish women for both their own personal pleasure and for greater profit. Children of slaves were themselves slaves which increased the size of the master’s free workforce.

Even if an Irish woman somehow obtained her freedom, her children would remain slaves of her master. Even with newfound emancipation, mother’s children would remain slaves, so the mother’s rather than abandon their children would remain in servitude.

In time, the English thought of a better way to use these women (In many cases, girls as young as 12) to increase their market share. The settlers began to breed Irish women and girls with African men to produce interbreeding Irish females with African men to produce slaves with a distinct complexion.

Then new “mulatto” slaves brought a higher price than Irish livestock and likewise, enabled the settlers to save money rather than purchase new African slaves.

This practice of interbreeding Irish females with African men went on for several decades and was so widespread that, in 1681 legislation was passed “forbidding the practice of mating Irish slave women to African slave men for the purpose of producing slaves for sale. In short, it was stopped only because it interfered with the profits of a large slave transport company. 

England continued to ship tens of thousands of Irish slaves for more than a century. Records state that after the 1798 Irish Rebellion, thousands of Irish slaves were sold to both America and Australia. There were horrible abuses of both African and Irish captives. One British ship even dumped 1,302 slaves into the Atlantic Ocean so that the crew would have plenty of food to eat.

There is little question that the Irish experienced the horrors of slavery as much (if not more in the 17th Century) as the Africans did. There is also, very little question that those brown, tanned faces you witness in your travels to the West Indies are very likely a combination of African and Irish ancestry. In 1839, Britain finally decided on its own to end it participation in satan’s highway to hell and stopped transporting slaves.

While their decision did not stop pirates from doing what they desired, the new law slowly concluded THIS chapter of nightmarish Irish misery. But if anyone black or white believes slavery was only an African experience, then they’ve got it completely wrong.


Everything you see today is an attempt to eliminate that. To remain silent _living in fear [controlled] is to remain powerless. A Moment in Time. History has taught us that People Will Rise [Judgement [Revolution] Day] against the Rulers. From Pharaohs to Kings to Elected Officials. 

A rigged system of control and corruption [evil]. [on the backs of people] Modern day slavery. People Will Rise Again. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
