You should visit Ireland one day, nice place.
Some English were treated bad too and some Irish were slave owners too. You'd never know.
The truth is, all races have enslaved their own race, or ethnic group somewhere. We are all a product of slave owners, and people being conquered. I had to learn this, so I dont have the victim mentality about things, but I ask question. I will say this, america has a long way to go, the racism here is watered down. Have you seen the movie "roots", or "queen", is it big in england?

True story.

The vast majority of us have slave, slave owning and slave trading ancestry regardless of race or other ethnic background.

I've watched clips from the ''roots'' many people in the UK have watched it, in my area we did so in the community center. It was essentially black + mixed race (black) watching it and almost all wanted to randomly beat up some white person after. I've never heard about ''queen'' though.

Nawl, she is virtually pure, and yes, that is true, but she was stereotypical looking. Some will fool you, but I did not believe her one bit. It had to be so long ago, like in 1690 lol.

We earlier mixtures from the irish indentured servants, but many were tooken to barbados as servants/slaves too. I believe this mixing happened for a while, and the term mulatto was put on the census I heard, partially because of this. Im speaking of this part, Im not down playing my african roots like some folks try to say. I have no idea why we AA's dont know anything about our african heritage! I belive they were forbidden to practice their tradtions or something.
