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.

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.

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.
