Blacks owned blacks slaves. They even could own white indentured servants.

Some bought and kept their slaves while others sold them off.

My family were slaves, but not in the US. Escaped slaves arriving in NY. Whites owning whites.
This was late 1880's

I'm too confused to know whether I should hate whites right now.
The US slave situation before and after the Revolution is not a part of my past.

I think it is safe to say, there are a lot of people in the US that have no past with Slavery in the US - and my not have any in their past countries.

That's one reason I have a problem with being addressed as having a privilege or deserved dislike. Slavery goes back for me three generations. There is no one left in my family that hates the owners.
