With today being the last day of black history month I'm going to dispel two rumors about slavery that people try to use as a means to justify slavery The first rumor is that the first American slave owner was a black man and the second rumor is Africans sold their people into slavery With today being the last day of black history month I'm going to dispel two rumors about slavery that people try to use as a means to justify slavery The first rumor is that the first American slave owner was a black man and the second rumor is Africans sold their people into slavery First I'm going to debunk the first slave owner being black Now the name of the first alleged slave owner was supposedly Anthony Johnson This mans very name alone disproves him being the first man to own a black slave in America because he HIMSELF was a slave hence the name Anthony Johnson both names given by slave masters specifically of European and Irish ancestry This mans name would not have been Anthony Johnson prior to coming to America at the time he was brought here because neither Anthony or Johnson we're names that can be traced back to African entomology at the time of his arrival in America even when translated to different African dialects He obviously didn't give himself a name that didn't even exist in his native tongue to begin with and even if he somehow could he wouldn't be allowed to anyway So the very fact that this man was a slave disproves him being the first slave owner in America because slaves literally weren't allowed to own ANYTHING they weren't even allowed to own their own ideas and inventions much less another human being Now there may be people that say he wasn't brought here he was born to a black family that was already hereand this statement in itself also disproves the rumor that he was the first slave owner because if he was born to a black family who again gave him the name of someone else's native tongue that doesn't even exist in their native dialect this proves that he was born to a family of slaves making it chronologically impossible for him to be the first slave ownerwhen his family were slaves before he was even born Now chronologically speaking if you said that the first man to own HIS family was the first slave owner you'd have a more solid argument but we can deduce that the man who would've owned his family had to be white based on the last and first name that he gave Anthony's family Meme
