some blacks in America are the children of slaveowners and in a sense are lucky because they can trace the family tree along the slave owners line because being the descendant of a slave woman and her owner, although it made their ancestor also a slave too, they carry the genes of the slave owners in their very blood.
so from that i am relatives with a lot of people who descent from slave owners from cousins related to my lines.
Being born into it is what makes it different to me.
it’s one thing to detain a man or a woman.
quite another to claim their children and their children’s children.
being a genealogy buff, The day it truly sunk about the complete erasure of family tree history was when i realized the full difference.
