The answer is NOOOO!

"Our findings is that Anthony Johnson was in fact a black man that owned slaves, but to call him the first slave owner in America would be a stretch. If anything he owned the first slave declared a slave in a civil court of law. There were however legally declared slaves for at least 15 years before him."

1.25 million Europeans were enslaved by the so-called Barbary corsairs
(Some of the slavers were Muslims. Some were privates. You learn a little about this in college history classes.)
Much attention and condemnation has been directed towards the tragedy of the African slave trade, which took place between the 16th and the 19th centuries. However, another equally despicable trade in humans was taking place around the same time in the

Any of y'all love #ClawfootTubs as much as I do?

After renting an apartment for 3 years that had only a shower stall, I'm really loving the claw foot tub in my new place. It's not as lovely as this one, however!

Indentured Servitude is NOT the same as chattel slavery.

- An indentured servant signed a contract to work for 1 to 7 years.  Some people voluntarily signed contracts to work in the NEW WORLD (The Americas). Some people were forced into it. The reason many people signed up for indentured servitude was they needed a rich sponsor to pay for their passage (on a ship) to The New World.

- On average, an indentured servant would work for about 4 years and then gain COMPLETE FREEDOM. And most indentured servants were ASSIMILATED into WHITE society (They were slowly accepted in the majority race in the USA.)

- Most European indentured servants were NOT chained on the voyage while being transported to the New World.

- Some indentured servants faced harsh conditions that were similar to chattel slaves (like African slaves or Native American slaves). Many were mistreated during the course of their contracted labor.

- Indentured servants came from various European countries, e.g., Ireland, England, and Germany.,_The_Rise_and_Fall_of_Indentured_Servitude_in_the_Americas.pdf

(If I had more time, I would provide more links to view. Google for good academic sources from college or university sources on "indentured servitudes" or "indentured servants" or "Irish slave myth.")

315 years. 20,528 voyages. 12.5 million people.

"By the conclusion of the trans-Atlantic slave trade at the end of the 19th century, Europeans had enslaved and transported more than 12.5 million Africans. At least 2 million, historians estimate, didn’t survive the journey. —Jamelle Bouie"
Usually, when we say “American slavery” or the “American slave trade,” we mean the American colonies or, later, the United States. But as we discussed in Episode 2 of Slate’s History of American Slavery Academy, relative to the entire slave trade, North America was a bit player. From the trade’s...

"For 10 years, I lived in a majority African-American town, yet had few meaningful interactions with African-American families. I only had white friends, and yet still felt like an outsider as one of the few Asians living in our small town."
I grew up in Orangeburg, South Carolina, the same state as Dylann Roof, a state where the Confederate flag flew over the state Capitol.

#BlackLivesaMatter -- it's good for minority communities to have some visibility. So many times, they are not heard or they feel helpless and voiceless. No one should ever feel that way...EVER.
Today and every day, Googlers around the world stand in solidarity with the people of Charleston and against racism. #BlackLivesMatter

Opt-Out of Notifications From Me - If you don't want to ever receive Notifications of posts from me: If you do not want to be notified of any posts, just go ahead and tell me so I can put you in my Do Not Notify Circle. Comment your name on this post if you don't want notifications from me:

Comment Policy: State your opinion. Don't attack others. Don't attack me. Don't be a jerk. I do delete comments/posts and I will occasionally disable commenting on a post if people are not getting along or completely missing the point. I am the moderator of my posts. I am responsible for what takes place in my comment threads. I will not allow anyone to bully other people. It's just a social network. It shouldn't be a place for bullying. Discussion is fine but being nasty and cruel to one another doesn't make a community. No cyber bullying allowed. You don't have to agree with or support what another person says or believes in but you have no right to bully them.

1. Refrain from profanity in my posts.  

2. Personal attacks on my intelligence, my physical appearance, my race, my sex will not be tolerated. 

3. Racial slurs of any racial group will get your comment deleted. It is offensive to me and others. You do not refer to me as "Angry," "Aggressive," "Combative," "Hostile," or "Caustic," or "Assertive".  You do not address me as "Little Girl" or "Newbie" or "Noob" or say "Your kind can't know this or that about tech or social media."  You do not push your stereotypes or generalizations of Black People or Black Women unto me.  Keep your prejudice thoughts off my posts. If you do it, I will report you and block you.

4. Don't derail or get my comment section on my posts off topic unless you have an important reason to do so and the tangent connects to the topic being discussed. I will allow some leeway about tangents or side conversations in my comment threads on my posts. It is at my discretion.  

5. Do not spam my comments with "Hi" or "Hello, be my friend." and/or leave spammy links or marketing garbage. 

You do NOT have permission to personally attack me or anyone else in my comment threads on my posts. You will not harass, bully, or defame my name or the name of other Google Plus users on my posts. Do not spread lies and untruths and gossip about me or other Google Plus users in my comments. I will delete comments that attack other users in any personal manner and I will report and block you. This is my comment policy. Don't comment on my posts unless you abide by it.

Do Not Overtag/Mention (@name or +name) Me In Comments. If you need to bring me to a comment thread with a tag, that's fine. If you need to point out something specific to me in a polite way, that's fine, but don't just tag me a bazillion times to try to get others to bully or attack me or my position. It's not necessary.

I Circle Back People Under This Criteria: Google Plus users that have personal posts and have good original content. If all your posts are re-shares, I will not circle you back. If you post a bunch of gifs, I will not circle you back.

People who interact with me on Google+ get circled or followed -- that means "+1," comment, and share posts, and those who email or chat with me on Hangouts. I like when people introduce themselves to me before they start to circle me. - I don't like arguments, but I do enjoy good civil discussions. 

I don't like when people overtag me in comments. Tag me if you want to bring me to a conversation (post or comment thread) or if it is essential for you to tag me to point out a tip or specific information.
