WHAT is this banter?
The first thing that someone needs to research is where the slave trade started. It was way before the first Black man put foot on American soil.
Keep on researching, and you will realize that almost every race has been a slave, at one time or another...read your bible!
However, when it comes to slavery in the land we call the United States today, the slaves were traded by chieftains of powerful African tribes for spices, tobacco, and other goods, otherwise they were simply used for sacrifices to the rain gods.
If you are hating the northerners, the southerners, during the period of wrongful ownership of another being, then you must look back to your own people to ship you here in the first place.
Get over the bullshit...no one owes you a damn thing...Get your happy ass up and start living the life that your great grand parents only could wish that their childrens, childrens, childrens, could one day be free, much less vote!
