West Indians

Many don’t know, Indians owned Israelites (the so-called blackman). Many of the tribes sided with the Confederacy. Even in the United States considered them to be separate political polities because the Indians did not want to free their salves.
The abolition of salvery as stated in the Thirteenth Amendment did not apply to the Indians territory. Many of the salves ran to White slave owners because they were being treated better.
Indian owners tell slaves were better off now than in your own counrty, and then having the White slaves owners Christianizing them thinking some way it’s benefiting the slaves in a way that compensated them for the loss of their freedom and labor. 
The West Indian plantations were run by hired managers whose sole incentive was to wring every penny they could out of the plantations, often for just a year or two before moving on to other employment.  They had not the slightest connection with their slaves, treated them like machine parts. West Indian owners figured that it was cheaper to work slaves to death and buy new ones than to feed and care for slaves properly.

; Her princes within her are roaring lions; her judges are evening wolves; they gnaw not the bones till the morrow.
; Wherefore a lion out of the forest shall slay them, and a wolf of the evenings shall spoil them, a leopard shall watch over their cities: every one that goeth out thence shall be torn in pieces: because their transgressions are many, and their backslidings are increased.

These are the one taking your hard earned money lying to you saying “Thus saith the LORD GOD.

; But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.

Not coming with the truth, they came to steal kill and robb you. We need the word from heaven

; For the victory of battle standeth not in the multitude of an host; but strength cometh from heaven. 20 They come against us in much pride and iniquity to destroy us, and our wives and children, and to spoil us: 21 But we fight for our lives and our laws.
This is not a humble spirit of teaching God’s word, he is the proud!
; Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.

Adding others saying they are part of the nation and are not. Just to gain more money

; Thou hast multiplied the nation, and not increased the joy: they joy before thee according to the joy in harvest, and as men rejoice when they divide the spoil.
We have a battle before us, that is worth more than money
; And said to the people, Be not greedy of the spoil inasmuch as there is a battle before us,

We will know them by their fruits (their works)

; Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
