      Scars of a slave. History proves humans can't rule successfully without Jah. This is what man did to another man in dominating him. This is not an act of love, kindness, goodness, mildness. As Eccl 8:9 says: “Man has dominated man to his injury.” & Jer 10:23: “I well know, O Jehovah, that to earthling man his way does not belong. It does not belong to man who is walking even to direct his step.”...We are obligated to know Jehovah & Jesus-take on their qualities & this example won't happen!!!

      Torturous demoralizing scars embedded on the backs of many slaves in america. Not to kill them (owners needed slaves for laboring their plantation$) but to break them (specifically, the most influential slaves), conditioning them (infiltrating the slave psyche instilling the most stealth poison: fear). This level of genocide erratically obliterated any and all connection to a slave's birthright origin and root heritage. Behold, the triumphant 'African American'; born through such a demonic dark period of American history. ~©®

    Even before swimming was something most people learned as children, people still enjoyed a dip in the ocean. To avoid getting swept out to sea without any knowledge of how to swim back to shore, beachgoers would cling to these ropes as they climbed in and out of the ocean. Around 1900, these were common at all large beaches, as you can see in this image from Coney Island taken by William H. Rau.
