Damn, Nmaginate, I was hoping you would be curious enough to want to find out, for yourself, if it were actually true, that one of the first slave owners was, indeed, a black man but you were too lazy to find out for yourself.
You'll have to forgive me--it's the educator in me that likes to play with his students--see how eager they are to want to learn about such an unbelievable subject: A black man owning a white man?
Apparently, it didn't interest you enough to want to find out for yourself. Maybe you were still trying to think up a lie to compensate for the fact that you still haven't done a damn thing worth mentioning in the line of giving back to the community--empowering your people.

Damn, Nmaginate, I answered that question four hours ago but you haven't posted a damn thing in response to having your challenge reversed on you. I enjoyed laughing at your cockiness when you wrote this next part:
quote:Frenchy, the thing to me more than anything, beside the typical "take my word for it" BS... is exactly how any of that is relevant here.
IMO, anyone willing to assert something they almost specifically express as something "interesting" or something unknown or somehow contrary to what is believed or contrary to what has been mention (Western Imperialism)... who isn't just as quick and willing to produce the supporting information that not only establishes what they've suggested but actually qualifies it and put it in an actual context... someone like that is by definition suspect.
Anybody that isn't willing to just shut the fuck up and give a person the opportunity to locate and post evidence to the validity of his statement is, indubitably constipated
Here's my favorite quote of this whole forum, Nmaginate:
