  • When all my people are gone off the land, then The Most High will raise the waters and waves and move those others away.

  • These are my ancestors and two of my family talk Geecee

  • The guy who represent uncle Tom he doesn't have solution and said What it will be if Indians still in Manhattan NY.
    That how he sees hundreds of years ago today's reality. Fool
    Like we don't care what had happened the Native Aboriginals .

  • First time seeing this. Please share with everyone possible, hopefully someone with means will be able to help.

  • If they work for fortune 500 companies why not invest in upgrading the ppl's housing and land. blcks are the worst sellouts..facts. i will never sell heirs land, families can unify and upgrade their own land.

  • I REMINDS ME OF THE CONTINUED TAKING OF BLACK LAND ALL OVER.

  • Can the people have nothing without capitalism exerting it's dominance and robbing us blind? The United Snakes are relentless in the pursuit of wealth and power and it destroys everything worth having in this world. Solidarity with the Gullah peoples and all marginalized, oppressed and exploited folks in the world and down with capitalism and it's fully captured states the world over. Any system that incentivises the grandson of the midwife who helped birth the people he's gladly selling out for personal gain is sick beyond repair. That man has internalized the ideology of the oppressor and been duped into class collaboration and identifying with the enemy and has himself become the pig. This is some shameful shit but unfortunately I'm not the least surprised. Colonial settler mentality is something the US still ain't trying to deal with at all. Just look at the state of the First Nations peoples and average folks throughout the country. This system doesn't work for us and it's not a bug, its very much a feature.

  • This is sad ๐Ÿ˜ข

  • Its sad how we sell our own for greed! And its even more sad, when the reporter can have a sense of pride, admiration, and understanding that a descendant cant even have for what his grandmother went through to even acquire the land, that he inherited and nows sells and develops for a community that looks at him just as they looked at his ancestor. Like a slave to do THIER bidding!!! Smh!!! ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ

  • He is a fool and is doing just what those khazars want him to do. It is always one that has to be in opposition. Thats why our culture cant win. We just sit back and let them take everything we have.

  • Shout out to my James Island family in S.C. Whaley Fam!!!

  • So this is why white racist call us "geechee's"….I was confused as hell when a balding devil called me one.

  • Blacks us to own alot of land near these beaches and such.like in North Carolina and South Carolina. There's a few youtube videos that talk about this as well as a book. This was back in the 1920s though..

  • We puerto ricans have the same roots

  • My mother, grandmother, grandfather, aunts, uncle's r Gullah, Geechee and many r still there and own their land.

  • "Forced off the land" that sounds so familiar once again history repeating itself in America.

  • They have the right to not become Americanized in your way. Give them what is owed to them!! UNITE AND STAND AS ONE!! PUT YOUR MONEYS TOGETHER and SAVE YOUR LAND

  • My folks are Geechies Gullahs straight out of the sea islands of Georgia, Florida and the Carolinas

  • Browns always become greedy and still lose in the end!!

  • This is so disrespectful. Gullah pronounced Goo-lah and Geeche were two separate indigenous tribes. Gullah is not a language it is a people. We had our own kingdom from Georgetown South Carolina to Wilmington North Carolina.What you call the Seminole war is actually Gullah wars. The Seminoles are of African descendant. Unless you research with an open mind you will continue to believe this bullshit African story. I can't with some people! I know for a fact that the land their golf courses was built on belong to my people. We gullahs still live in the area. Because of the geechee dialect it's easy to pawn them off as Africans.

  • Damn what a sad story. I just hate stuff like this. Its economic racism. and that dude who is originally from NYC and moved down there when he discovered he owned land there is a shameful person.

  • So sad! Why do Americans need more resorts and golf courses? Why can't Americans help the people, rather than swindle them out of their inheritances? This God that Americans claim to love so much, can't be pleased with the greed, and uncaring spirit that has captured the minds and heart of those calling themselves Christians.

  • What you donโ€™t see on Oprah. Love this! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  • There's got to be a way to adapt to this greedy American culture and still hold on to traditional values. There's got to be a way to reinvest in the hood.

  • again high white pepole taking over

  • Donโ€™t ever trust a vow enemyโ˜ ๏ธโ˜ ๏ธโ˜ ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ป๐Ÿ‘บ

  • Instead of helping his ancestors with the changing world, he supports the agenda of the same 'fortune 500' companies that will be at the root of his demise. the idiocy is ironic, but it's the same story happening all over the world.

  • You think your people can eat dollars, useless paper, live work farm on useless paper, now that a devil ? Witchcraft not going to save you, don't mix witchcraft with God, that's why we came here Yah is a holy Elohim.

  • Wow… I've learned a lot. Thank you. My grandmother was from Gullah-Geechee Island and my grandfather from Batesburg, South Carolina. They both passed away when my father was a small child, so of course I never met them.

  • Rise Up My African Ancestors… Rise…Asheo

  • he has no shame ,money is his god.

  • This is an alarming story that now, 3 years later, still isn't reported on the regular news outlets. Anything that's a wake-up call isn't reported. Too bad that another Northern Black person who's really trying to save their ancestors' land wasn't interviewed. That guy left a bad taste in my mouth, because he didn't say 'development for the people,' to have modern homes instead of trailers. He said 'development' and 'progress,' which is – build something for the interlopers and get out the way. That's not how it's gonna go, and if they do build, a hurricane is gonna knock it all down!

  • The problem comes in when your heritage has a price and your a trader for the $$%. That is not progress

  • How is that dudes name Adolph????

  • leave them alone!!!!!!

  • 13:28 I noticed sheโ€™s wearing Nyame symbol on her earrings.

  • Imagine being black and selling your own people…at least he could help them

What u think be happening when folks be doing evil works? They loose. Gulla what? Gichi what? Please people get your minds out the gutter. U cant be backin every spearchuckin tribe. Would you like your own children to be cannibalized by shit like this. Snap out of it. King Guala Maine seh dat! Wassup? The only solution there izzz development!!! Belie dat wo. Shot out my brother in the white cap. I love my niggaz. #chicomob Say supm!

  • Before dem seek YAH, dem seek the devils, thats why dem life so misareble!!!

  • This happens way to often. And it can't always be blamed on the "white man" WE see an opportunity to capitalize on those who cannot fight for themselves because of the lack of money. You are hard pressed to find native residents in places like this and Key West and other parts of the country; Gentrification at its finest!

  • Stay strong and keep your land. Don't loose what's yours.

  • At 13:47 The man with a face paint recited the verse of the Qur'an Al Fatiha (The Opening).

    Amazing may Allah guide these people.

  • 13:27 Did anyone else notice that it was Al-fatihah, the first chapter of the Quran, being recited.

    There must have been a few Muslims amongst those who lived on those islands.

  • We are American aboriginal people!!! They try to say that we all came from Africa but that is a hoax to steal the the American land and estates from the true American people.

  • Bet Adolfo midwife grandma would be so proud of him……Not

  • That's a dam shame black American own land and still being stolen

  • This sellout adolf dude

  • I'm so tired of white people coming in and taking what they didn't help to get.. or what's not theirs….. Smh…. It's ok TMH said what was first will be last, and what's last will come first…… the end is near, and y'all still won't fix your faults….just remember, you should've picked your own cotton…. And I think I'm speaking for blacks when I say this…. this (black guy) is no longer apart of the black community, he's a trader and y'all (whites) can have him, when push comes to shove! And it will… He tried it… He supposed to be helping blacks not helping tare down blacks, cause the devil and his seeds they don't need no help.. believe that

  • Lease the land 100% with no clause of commercial ownership. Also pool monies for taxes .

  • Yes she is from a part of Africa- Israel. Hebrews to Negros movie/doc available on Prime

  • Developerโ€™s name is Adolf…
    โ€œOh, well then fu** him especially.โ€

  • Interesting. The last part is a Muslim prayer translation. Are they still Muslim?

  • Made me sick to my stomach

  • Ole Wayne Brady lookin mf tryna get the village to sell smh ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธ ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธ. We need to own dummy not sell. He setting us bk more years.

  • All money is not good money when you are a sale out! Woowee!

  • Well I don't take blame the developers of on this one. The Gullah people should realize what was going on and organized to stop it.

  • Hey VICE I currently live in Phillip's Community and I would like to get in touch j with you guys on a story I think would be worth telling…I grew up here for the last 26yrs and I see you had Mr.Palmer on the documentary as an older view point. But I think I have some "millennial" point of view that would be worth some content maybe.

  • Side note…ADOLPH is a ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ

  • Nothing came from Africa, cave man you already talking like a KKK ,we were not no slave

  • They are not Afircan

  • They are the real Israelites!! God, says We will remember ourselves in the land of our Captivites!!

  • Watching this makes me so sad. Americans will put money ahead of people every time. That's the American way. How can someone feel comfortable displacing 19 families that have been on land for generations. I guarantee Adolph is not working alone. He is just being used to infiltrate the community by larger developers. Shame. Please keep fighting for what is rightfully yours.

  • fucking greedy white america always taking peoples land!!!!

  • I'm sorry but I dont think she hearing no songs. Let's put a tone down on some of the sensationalism y'all

  • The guy is kind of right. Why dont they build their own businesses and developments?? Hello!!! We as a people have to think and ADAPT!! Either we do for ourselves OR we will always be looking for someone or something else to provide!! Why cant we play the game like the Indians so we can have our own casino's and communities!!!

  • This is what Europeans have been doing for centuries. And, you have some Black/brown people who are on their side whom want a piece of the pie and sell out their own people and destroy their own culture. This is extremely sad and gentrification is going on all over the United States, the Europeans come to conquer and destroy to continue to gain and keep their wealth.

  • CAN WE HAVE SOMETHING?

  • Sell out greedy piece of dog shit. You were named correctly Adolf. Instead of creating internal wealth for his own culture, he helps to force them out for pennies on the dollar. Shameful. Those developments should be black owned business endeavors. These people didnt anticipate whites and sell out's stealing their land back which is unfortunate. Beyond sad.

  • Why not create "Gullah Geechee Nation Trust", put all of the land left and the land illegally taken in that trust and force those who developed on it to pay the trust for the use of the land or they have to leave also preserving the Gullah Geechee Nation? What the hell is that lawyer doing?

  • Geechie/Gullah for fa life

  • Black people need to keep what little land and wealth that they have. It's a shame that some blacks are willing to sell out to their oppressors. Damn shame.

  • I wish I had land. Wow.

  • Gullah Gullah island sent me here

  • You ignorant fool u are destroying real history theses black people own there land land is Everything for our people history history priceless

  • That distant relative, developer from NY ainโ€™t about Shit!!!! Adolph. He might end up as alligator food, kicking those people off their homes.

  • African Americans ain't african

  • This a bounch of bullshitt !! ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ’ค๐Ÿ‘Ž

  • PRAYER IS MOST POWERFUL than any man made tools great and small.
    Not one human being nor humanoids can ever own anything that was CREATED BY THE MOST HIGH ONE unless they are Robbers of the MOST HIGH ONE and No one has ever seen nor heard about the consequences of Robbing the MOST HIGH ONE but the Robbers will experience what Robbing the MOST HIGH ONE IS LIKE BUT WILL NOT EVER LIVE TO TELL THEIR LOVE ONES to NEVER LIVE TO ROB FOR TEMPORARY treasures.

  • The race color of colorful folks is black the false Christ is black like the night and that light as blue as your eyes.Judges Chapter 15,verse 1-10)Verse 14,)Judges 13,verse 25)1Chronicle Chapter 6,verse 31).1Chroinles Chapter 5,verse 1-14).Genesis Chapter 25,verse 15.)

  • I don't know how i got here, i have always wanted to know if there exist any African Americans who still trys to preserve their African culture, even after many years gone. I was brought to tears when i saw those lady dancing and singing, the rhythm and melody sounded just like some songs in the Munga'ka language, from the Bali-Nyonga people in the North West Region of Cameroon.

  • Never knew how import Gullah Gullah Island was to the culture when I was a kid. I remember watching those beautiful brown faces play with a giant yellow toad on Nickelodeon. The old school Nick was ahead of its time. โค๏ธ

  • That Adolph guy is disgusting. A parasite to his own community. Hows way?!

  • OMG greed and exploitation never stops-this is what happened to the American Indians.

  • ADOLPH, THE "CITY SLICKER," UNDERSTANDS, BUT! THE WORLD HAS CHANGED… IS HE RIGHT?!? TIME WAITS FOR NO-ONE… NO-ONE… POOR!

  • "That real estate agent Adolph Brown is a sellout"…
