Default August 20, 1619 beginnings of slavery in the US, coming up on 400th anniversary

This event was recently brought to my attention, yet another reason to pay attention to the year 2019 and also 2020.

Slavery began in this country, the United States, with the kidnapping of Africans and their transport here, to the US. It happened on August 20, 1619, and I suspect something major with happen this August 20th, we'll have to wait and see.

God "likes" certain numbers. 40 is one number and, of course, all it's mutliples, especially when it's a multiple like 10. The number 40 points to trials, but, all things considered, I think 2019 is the start of trials, rather than the end. Maybe it's both.

It's rumored by many that the original Israelites were black, so maybe, possibly, the Africans did something to offend God(voodoo maybe?) and maybe that's why we've had this 400 year period of blacks getting the short end of the stick. The problem is that, when the Israelites suffering ended, it tended to mean the people making them suffer were about to suffer.

Now, I have absolutely nothing against black people, racism is terrible. But I look like a white devil whether I've been mean to black people or not. I keep waiting for the day where I get my clock cleaned because my autistic awkwardness is seen as racism.

My ADD made this post diverge a bit, I intended to make this about prophecy and it turned into something else. Suffice it to say, the US, and maybe the world, is about to get real bad real quick. It's only a matter of time. The US will attack Iraq soon, though I have no idea when, and maybe that will be the thing that triggers the 7 year peace plan, the beginning of the end.

Sigh... No big surprise you've suddenly shown up.

Could you please explain to us all how you know what "God" likes?

There was no slavery in the United States of America on August 21, 1619. Please check your facts.

You seem to be off by a century: I find the beginning of European slavery in what is now the US to be in 1508 (of the native Tainos) and the beginning of European slavery of Africans in what is now the US to be in 1513 (from the Senegambia region). Can you find the "something major" that happened a hundred years ago, for those of us curious? Sorry, I don't have the exact days, you'll have to do the next step of historical research here.

I just Googled it, and 1619 appears to be correct. Maybe it didn't really blow up as an industry for a century or so. Not that I approve of enslaving people.

Look a few paragraphs lower, in the colonial America part. The slaves were stolen from the Spanish and brought to the US, so that explains why little is known, because it looks like it was a luck of the draw thing for the US and probably not really common until later for what is now the US.

I stand by my statement. You are in error. Examine things carefully, especially the exactness of my statement vs. your assumption of what I mean.

Mathematical correctness here:
Example:
You became a father and you're asked: "Is it a boy or a girl?"
The only correct answer would be: "Yes!"

Hint:
Combine "United States of America" and "4th July".
