Very interesting. At the end of the article is a list of questions asking you to vote on one that sums up your perspective on the article. I chose the one that said I was not surprised considering Blacks sold other Blacks into slavery. 54% also chose that option. Only 3%, out of over 800 votes chose answers along the line of :
1. Doesn’t matter whites continued holding slaves.
2. I want a second source to confirm this information.

Europeans were routinely enslaved by Muslims as late as 1830. It is estimated that about a million were enslaved between 1600 and 1830.

Slaves were originally captured by other blacks in Africa. The whites didn’t capture them, there were captured by tribal lords to make money.

The Washington Times is somehow listed as the cited resource, but the link redirects to World Net Daily. Maybe a mod will fix that.

On reading the First Census of Texas 1835, I discovered my earliest Texas ancestors listed their property as 2 black slaves and one wooden clock. I did NOT inherit the clock! :[

My Swiss ancestor and his first wife sold themselves into indenture for passage. The wife and son died at sea early in the voyage. The deal was that if you lived past the halfway point, then died, surviving relatives had to work out the full term of your indenture.

He landed in Philadelphia in 1749, worked as a carpenter and cabinet maker. In 1750 he remarried, a lady also from Switzerland and probably also indentured.

When they finished indenture they headed West, ended up in S.W. Virginia. They had 14 or 15 kids, most of the boys learned woodworking and metalworking, several made some really nice flintlock rifles, the whole works, lock stock and barrel..

Indentured servitude was common in colonial America. Indentured servitude was not slavery. Indentured servants eventually worked off the fares for their transport to the colonies. This was not sufficient for a free black man and prosperous landowner named Anthony Johnson. For forty years, Johnson used indentured servitude rules to expand his family's property holdings on the Atlantic shores of Virginia.

Anthony Johnson, the black slave owner, sued in court to prevent “economic damage” if John Casor, another black, was allowed his freedom. The court bound Casor over to Johnson as his personal slave. This case established the case for slavery in colonial America.

In the end, Johnson's victory was a tactical triumph but a strategic defeat. After Anthony Johnson's death, the laws in Virginia were again changed. Blacks were stripped of their property rights (to acquire and to pass on) and became slaves to white colonists. Now you know the rest of the story.
