African Slavery

The plantation owners were not fans of the Jesuits and criticized them for their interference and obstruction of their labor supply, yet in the end it did not matter[1]. The Indian’s, not understanding the capitalist lifestyle, refused to comply with the work the Portuguese demanded of them causing the colonialist to turn towards another source of labor, slavery. At first the use of African slaves was quite minimal within the Portuguese of Brazil. However, colonials quickly found that the indigenous labor, which their sugar economy was founded on, held high death rates and frequently abandoned plantations[2]. This made Africans the ultimate choice for slave labor, “establishing one of the most enduring slave systems in the history of the world.[3]

African slave life in colonial Brazil.

            Many Jesuit monasteries in the new world from the beginning had been using African and native slave labor to run and make profit off their large land holdings within the new world. To legitimize this offense they followed the lead of the Catholic Church and monarchy, claiming it legitimate because the slaves were gathered in a “just war.” The acts of Jesuit monastic members varied from region to region, but it is easy to see why theological and political debate varied so widely on the subject of slaves[1]. There was no easy answer on what was right or wrong, but the overall actions of Jesuit members still had a deep impact on the lives of the African and native slaves. 
The Jesuits also affected slavery with some of the institutions they erected in the Portuguese model, one such institution was the confraternity. The confraternities were founded by Jesuits for the elite as well as for African slaves. Through these confraternities the Jesuits were able to ensure that the newly baptized blacks would attend mass and join in religious training. However, for the African slaves the confraternities held a more vital role by easing them into life as a slave. At these meetings blacks were able to find other Africans who spoke their language, or understood their cultural traditions, helping the frighten transition. Along with that slaves were able to incorporate their old traditions into the religious festivals and processions held by the confraternities. The establishment of African confraternities by the Jesuits is seen as one of the main sources of Afro-Brazilian Catholicism and shows that the Jesuit influence had lasting effects on the Slave population of Brazil[2].

  1. NEW AFRICA REVOLUTION AND EVOLUTIONSM.
    Black is the nature of africa and this is where all the black origin came from, no matter where you find yourself have it in mind that you are black origin form this great land called Africa. We here in Africa, are very greatful and we thank almighty God (Allah), who gave us this land. And the history that is given to us about our generation of the past, which is a sad event for all Aficanism. The present with a great generation of moving africa to the next stage. Future is going to be great, we know where we are caming from, we now won't what is good for our mama Africa. We African's has to fight hard for UNIFICATION OF AFRICA because we are not a slaves to them anymore. African's, Lets remember what the white's told us when we were slave to them. They said they came to give us the light of the world not knowing they came to cheat us. When the white came they discover the shore of africa, Our people hide themselves in the bush as the white men also took a boat to the shore with guns,mirror, shaving stick etc.
    They put it at the shore and go back, then our people will also came and see it and feel happy because they were precious to them and they also brought precious things like, Gold's, silver's, etc.this was know as (BUTTER TRADE).This is how they took all the good things from us and went feather to even take away we ourselves to where they came from and use us like animals to gain what they have in mind as a vision for their countrey to move to next level and this is where we find ouerselves as slaves away from home. HO! MAMA AFRICA. So every black have to put this in mind and know that he or she is from Africa. West Africa, East Africa, North Africa, South Africa, Central Africa, Jamica, let's Unit. And all those who are living in the United States Of America, Eroup, Asia, I mean everyone with the black origin skin have to know that they are Origin of Africa. You have to know that you are all slaves and if you still found yourselves not in Africa or any part of the world, you would have to know that you are a Origin of africa. So my brother's and sister's we have to came togerther, remember all this things, cry for the long time in slavrey as our prophet BOB MARLY, CULTURE, MARTIN KING LAUTHER, KWAME NKURMAH,TIKAN JAH FAKOLY,MOHAMMED KADAFI and many of our forfathers who have live with us and see that we African's have to change our way of life and the way we do things. Those people are stll taken away all the great precious things away. What are we doing Africa, what can we do to change Africa and the world. {UNIFICATION OF AFRICA} has to be done for us to have a new AFRICA, that is the new name for africa. so Africa please let's Unit and work as one to get the Unification Done because we are now wise.
    Why do they always talk about black and white? Let's leave coluor alone. We are all one so we have to love each others and fight for our Right's. African's let's come together to love one another and live in Peace and Unity, we are not a slave anymore so we have to work harder and our eyes will opened. Any black who found himself/herself in Africa or U.S.A or Europe. I mean everywhere, should know that he/she is an African. We African's have to fight for our right's and liberty to make Africa United. Unification Of Africa most be done because we are no more slave, so my Brother's and sister's, lets come together as one and work hard for ourself and the United Nation for Unification of Africa to be done. And also any black has to be proud of himself/herself and know that we are all African's, and wherever you are tried to come home.

  3. Hi everyone here. What Christine Coleman said is very true though i may not know her. I experienced it first hand also. It was this organization called consumer loan firm (C.L.f)that really helped me to pay my medical bills when i was in dare need of money because i am a widow. A friend of my also directed me to them. when i was about to do a major operation and i had no money at that time, they came to my rescue and in less than 48 hours, i got my loan. But to say the truth, i was nervous and scared at first because i have been scammed twice. But when i summoned up courage and follow their lending policies along with my friends advice, at the end i found myself smiling. If not for them, maybe i would have been dead by now. I have even taken another loan from them start my business after my recovery which i am also paying back now. My only advice now is that any body who is really in need of loan should contact them with their email via: consumerloanfirm@gmail.com and get a loan from them. Thanks

    Hello friends!!! My name is David smith. i want to testify of the good
    Loan Lender who showed light to me after been scammed by 5 different
    Internet international lender, they all promise to give me a loan

    finally got her loan, so i decided to contact the same loan company
    and then told them my story on how i have been scammed by 5 different
    lenders who did nothing but to course me more pain. I explain to the
    company by mail and all they told me was to cry no more because i will
    get my loan in their company and also i have made the right choice of
    contacting them. i filled the loan application form and proceeded with
    all that was requested of me and to my shock I was given a loan amount
    of $60,000.00 Dollars by this great Company (Rose Mike Loan Company}
    managed by Mrs Rose Mike a God fearing woman and here i am today happy
    because this company has given me a loan so i made a vow to my self
