    Does it somehow negate the sin of slavery?

    Not sure if it's a sin and don't know why you would think that I need to negate anything.

    It's is dishonorable, navyvet, to adopt a made up nonsense that the first slaves in America were owned by blacks. In fact, in America they were owned by Native Americans first, Spaniards next, then Portuguese and other nationalities, and then in North America overwhelmingly by white men. To some how suggest that the incredibly small number of black slave holders were more significant than their numbers is dishonorable.

    Slavery and our past shames us all. Good for Michelle and boo to you.

    The First Heifer is a private citizen and can say anything she wants. She has as much right to say what Louis Farrakhan says as Louis Farrakhan says.

    Slavery is not a shame and it is not a sin. Slavery was a method of allocating labor before the industrial revolution.

    Slavery was and is and ever will be a shame and a sin. Those who defend are sinners before a just god.

    You obviously have an issue with history, not me. And to clarify, I am talking about what later became the United States of America. You my be grouping the islands into your answer. The first black slave was owned by a free black man who went to court to make the man a slave. Not sure what bullshit you're trying to pull.

    And if you grew up in a community that had slaves your view would likely be the opposite.
