“First they will come for your arm and you give them your thumb, hoping that will be enough. One year later they return and you give them the entire hand. The next year they come back again and this time you give them your elbow. They keep coming and coming until they have everything you have to give. Timothy Meaher allowed the last shipment of slaves to America to purchase their own land after slavery ended, however, his descendants and others have been trying to run them off the property they purchased by any means necessary”.
