Does that include blacks who owned slaves?

3,775
There were thousands of black slave owners in the South. "In 1830 there were 3,775 such slaveholders in the South who owned 12,740 black slaves, with 80% of them located in Louisiana, South Carolina, Virginia, and Maryland.

 

 

 

So what's your point Jimbo, that compared to the 385,000 or so white slave owners, that the black slave owners were inconsequential ???

 

Or is it that blacks owned slaves, so it was ok for slavery and it wasn't such a huge disgrace in our countries history ???

So if there were more whites who owned black slaves, then it's of no consequence that blacks owned slaves. Slavery is slavery is slavery. Human misery is human misery is human misery.


And the legal precedent of life long bondage was set by a black slave owner.


“The Johnson Family: African-American Owners of White and Black Slaves”, has revealed the fact that Blacks owned White slaves in America. He also notes that a legal precedent for life-long slavery in America was established by a Black slave owner with regard to one of his Black slaves.


So teach all the facts or teach none.

No dumbass, the point is that the blacks of today trying to be self righteous and indignant about the past and trying to persecute the Whites of today for the past all the while omitting their own equally guilty past is the epitome of STUPID HYPOCRISY AND RACISM.

It seems that Jimbo thinks that slavery was okay because a sizeable minority of Americans owned slaves and even more wanted to own slaves. Land was cheap and plentiful, and for Southerners, the American Dream involved owning some land, planting cotton and getting some slaves to do the work. Sort of like being a Wall Street specialist or hedge fund manager is to many people today. Jimbo does not think that anyone should be criticized for wanting what everyone wanted.

 

I am sure that many plantation owners thought of guys like Jefferson and Monroe, who were slaveholders who thought that slavery was bad in principle were a bunch of namby-pamby liberals. Jefferson Davis' brother owned a model Plantation on an island in the Mississippi, where the slaves were said to be almost entirely self-governing and happy as clams at high tide.
