You are beyond stupid. No one alive today "sowed" anything, and no one alive today was a slave. Very few whites alive today have ancestors that owned slaves, very few whites owned slaves during the days of slavery. None of my ancestors did. MY ancestors hid run away slaves in the caves around our home place, but a black person will talk s*** to me as if I personally owned slaves. Blacks sold blacks into slavery. There is no way people could have enslaved anyone without the help of their own people. There is still slavery today but people like you had rather dwell on things that took place hundreds of years ago. People are so freaking ignorant about slavery and the Civil War even when reading actual handwritten accounts and articles. Blacks were not the only race of slaves in the states and Americans were not the only slave owners.<quoted text>Nope...I blame whitey. Why was whitey over in africa buying humans to do his dirty work? Not talking about slavery in other countries. Talking about the USA only. Blacks were the ONLY race of folks who were slaves in the USA and treated like animals. You are reapong what you sowed.....WHITEY!
Black Americans continued to hold slaves through the Civil War. In 1860, some 3,000 blacks owned nearly 20,000 black slaves. In South Carolina alone, more than 10,000 blacks were owned by black slaveholders.
Born a slave in 1790, William Ellison owned 63 slaves by 1860, making him one of Charleston's leading slaveholders. In the 1850 census for Charleston City, the port of Charleston, there were 68 black men and 123 black women who owned slaves. In Louisiana's St. Landry Parish, according to the 1860 census, black planter Auguste Donatto owned 70 slaves and farmed 500 acres of cotton fields.
Black slaveholders were the exception to the rule, but so, too, were white ones. Only a small minority of Southern whites owned slaves, little more than five percent of the white population if calculated by individual owner, or some 20 to 25 percent if all the members of the slaveowners' families are included. This means that 75 percent or more of Southerners neither owned slaves themselves nor were members of families who did.
