Good read, from the deleted tweet trying to rewrite history to this history itself. And of course the Rothschilds are right in the middle, profiting for almost 200 years off this one deal, already uber elite in 1835.

I had no idea this happened:

In addition to money, slave owners received another form of compensation: the guaranteed free labour of blacks on plantations for a period of years after emancipation. The enslaved were thus forced to pay reverse reparations to their oppressors. At the stroke of midnight on 1 August 1834, the enslaved were freed from the legal category of slavery – and instantly plunged into a new institution, called “apprenticeship”.
