Robert M. Grooms, in "The Johnson Family: African-American Owners of White and Black Slaves", has revealed the fact that Blacks owned White slaves in America.

...In1651 Anthony Johnson [a negro] was given 250 acres as "head rights" for purchasing fiveincoming whiteredemptioners.

...In 1652 John Johnson, Anthony Johnson's eldest son, purchased eleven incoming white males and females, and received 550 acres adjacent to his father.

...There were a number of additional Virginia land patents representing grants to free blacks of from fifty to 550 acres for purchasing white redemptioners. For example, on April 18, 1667 Emanuel Cabew received fifty acres in James City County, and in 1668 fifty acres were deed to John Harris of Queen's Creek. Francis Payne paid for his freedom in 1650 by purchasing three incoming whites for his master's use.

Blacks and Indians came to own, and abuse, whites in Virginia in such large numbers that in 1670 the House of Burgesses (legislature) proclaimed that " ... noe negro or Indian though baptyised and enjoyned their own ffreedome shall be capable of any purchase of christians, but yet not debarred from buying any of their own nation." [Original spelling.]"Christian " wasa euphemism of theperiod for Caucasian. Virginia's Slave Code of 1705 provided:"That no negroes, mulattos, Indians, although christians, ore Jew, Moore, Mahometans, or other infidels,shallatany time,purchaseany Christian,nor any other, except of their own complexion, or such as are declared slaves by this act.""[73]

This aspect of slave history seems to have slipped by the media and academia without being noticed.

You forgot to tell just how long them ugly blacks actually had control over those so called White slaves, the national archives clearly stated by the time the feral kneegros got to their plantations, 48 hours later every black plantation owner & their families where decapitated & burned in pits adjacent to their respective properties.
