It would not surprise me if, due to miscegenation, if not outright rape, of slave women by their "owners" back in the day, many African-Americans have a slave-owner in their distant family trees. And if so, perhaps the reparations for the descendants of same should include a punitive sum. Let's say, double reparations for African American descendants of slave owners.



You do realize the first slave owner in America was a black man correct??

All your wishing it away wont make it better silly..
Blacks owned slaves too, as did the native American, heck a large majority of the planet at one time or another owned slaves.. you guys need a better schtick.. this ain't working anymore

So...  Do you have a clue of the slave population of the United States in 1860?

For the sake of clarification, when you say America, are you referring solely to the United States?

If so, I'm assuming this is the reference...

Quote:
The first legal slave owner in American history was a black tobacco farmer named Anthony Johnson.

Possibly true. The wording of the statement is important. Anthony Johnson was not the first slave owner in American history, but he was, according to historians, among the first to have his lifetime ownership of a servant legally sanctioned by a court.

A former indentured servant himself, Anthony Johnson was a “free negro” who owned a 250-acre farm in Virginia during the 1650s, with five indentured servants under contract to him. One of them, a black man named John Casor, claimed that his term of service had expired years earlier and Johnson was holding him illegally. In 1654, a civil court found that Johnson in fact owned Casor’s services for life, an outcome historian R Halliburton Jr. calls “one of the first known legal sanctions of slavery — other than as a punishment for crime.”

Source

Context is important.

As to the OP, some interesting family history I suppose, doesn't mean much to me though.

And of course this same Black man, as a business venture, founded a shipping fleet to bring millions of black slaves from Africa to America.

According to Wikipedia, Anthony Johnson arrived in Virginia in 1621 as an indentured servant and didn't gain his freedom until 1635. By that time, slaves had already been in Virginia for some time (Source).

Also, there was a Spanish colony in what became the Carolinas in the 1500s. This colony contained slaves, who rebelled in 1526. (Source)

In sum, the first slave in America was not owned by a black man.
