great point Landlord fly. So lets track down just the southern owners? I'm really just thinking the owners from 1776 era. You know the ones who said "all men are created equal". Sure equal as long as its free labor, I can beat you and breed you and your free labor to me-- but they did say all men are created equal. These guys had a set of gahoonea's.
These slave owners from early days. The more you know the more you can figure out they were in it for themselves. That's my evaluation of course. Under my theory of the fat cats don't send their kids to do the fighting even during the revolutionary war.
I have done some extensive research on one of the signers of the constitution. He was from Long Island and had many many slaves on his plantation. He got the property from the king of England due to his work in Morocco. I know Morocco!!!
He was given 1000's of acker's of land-- yes Indian land. he rounded up the Indians and gave them their own land a whole 188 arches--- to live on. WOW that was generous. He was a fat cat along with others of course.
THEY own big time in my book for what they did-- William Floyd.... just one of many.
But don't we have the same thing still going on? have's and have nots? --108.239.xx.xx
