I find it interesting that most "African-Americans" feel that all white people once owned slaves. Which of course is not true. Or that Africans in general enslaved their own or sold other tribespeople to European Americans or other tribes. Slavery, was no differnt than a mining town or mill that owned the town, the merchandise store, the houses the workers lived in (i.e. mill houses) and basically the workers whole life while keeping them in poverty. All slave owners were not what is portrayed in TV movie series. Some slaves were very committed and loved their owners and families. Most of my family didn't arrive here til after the Civil War. Having had no ownership of slaves and yet looked at is being responsible for another race's "struggles" IS indeed a very distur bing topic.
