A mere 1.6% over a hundred years ago at that. While you guys sold and enslaved each other for a lot longer before Europeans and Americans came, all the way to this day.
And even then, most only had one or two salves. Having slaves were expensive.
People should read about the first slave owner who happened to be black. Anthony Johnson who instead of letting go of his “indentured servant” John Casor, after working his time, sued the man’s next employer, a white man by the name of Robert Parker to get his servant back. Anthony won. Courts ruled he was allowed to indefinitely hold Casor as a slave in 1655, 15yrs before whites, blacks and Indians could as a whole.
Hell by 1860 thousands of black slaves were owned by thousands of black slave owners. As well as white slaves. More so in Europe.
You don’t see me committing crimes and murders at higher frequencies and being illiterate and making up a lot of drop out rates in schools because of my enslaved ancestors.
this was informative until i got to that last horribly racist paragraph
This would have been a good post if it weren’t for the last paragraph.
but those are all statistical facts…You might not like how he presented the information, that’s your prerogative, but the fact remains that all of those statements are supported by fact. *shrug*
Seriously.. 3 anti-SJWs and counting that got offended by a simple statement of facts..
In my virtual course they said that only 1/3 of people in the south owned slaves
but I can believe that slaves were extremely expensive

And this percentage is for the entire U.S. not just the south.
71 percent of people lived in the north while 29 percent lived in the south or something along those lines

The percentage of 1.6 is for all US citizens, not just north or south.
