    Who were the first slaves imported into the 1619 American Colonies?

    The first 100 slaves of 1619 were White (Irish) children.

    Being an Irish American from the Bay Colony of Massachusetts, I have little doubt that some of these slaves were indeed my ancestors. I may be seeking $$ reparations in the near future for the way my ancestors suffered under those slave conditions.

    Although the left doesn't talk about it, in 1619, we were not an independent nation, but a colony of England. Many sources dispute 1619 as the start date, but the fact is that in the Americas, slavery existed under European control for a much longer timeframe than slavery existed in United States of America. Many of us have the opportunity to live longer than slavery existed in the fledgling United States of America. I guess 1619 sounds a lot better than 1776 if you are hell bent on getting reparations for something that happened long ago.

    Europeans were not picky in who they enslaved. Any conquered group of people could become slaves. Race only became the divisor and face of slavery when Europeans began to awaken to the idea that slavery was wrong, and only then was race used as the justification to continue the practice. Much of the human trafficking that occurs to this day is without regard for race, but instead related to poor or disenfranchised groups of peoples.

    My first Chamness ancestor in America was reportedly an English indentured servant. Genealogists have diligently worked to find definitive proof that Anthony Chamness was an indentured servant, but the jury is still out. Blacks will denounce and ridicule anyone for equating "indentured servant" to "slave", but in practice, the treatment of the individual amounted to be pretty much equally bad and severe. Indentured servants suffered all manners of abuse, including death, just like their slave counterparts. If you were not of the privileged class, life was very hard. Thinking about it, the life of the privileged class that came to America was painfully difficult. The entire Jamestown colony collapsed. Pilgrims didn't fare so well in their early years. For indentured servants, like slaves, it was much worse.

    But Blacks don't let something like the end of slavery stop them, they claim to be owed reparations for all the unequal treatment they received after slavery was outlawed. Again, poor Europeans worked building railroads and in coal mines, like Chinese and like Blacks, in very poor conditions.

    Obvisously, I think the call for reparations is simply modern forced redistribution of wealth from the haves to the have nots. I don't like it one bit.

    after the Mowawk died at Port Royal, between the two defining episodes of that city ( severe earthquakes ) at least three major fires, one cholera epidemic, and 23 hurricans hit the place. 10 between 1704-1749, and the other 13 between 1750 and 1799.

    Anthony Johnson (b. c. 1600 d. 1670) was a black Angolan who achieved freedom in the early 17th-century Colony of Virginia after serving his term of indenture. He became one of the first property owners and slaveholders of African birth there.

    He was the first black indentured servant, the first free black, and the first to establish the first black community, first black landowner, first black slave owner, and the first person based on his court case to establish slavery legally in North America. One could argue that he was the founder of slavery in Virginia.

    In 1654, he brought a case before Virginia courts in which he contested a suit launched by one of his indentured servants, a Negro who adopted the name of John Casor.

    Johnson won the suit and retained Casor as his servant for life.

    This officially made Johnson the first legal slave owner in the British colonies that would eventually become the United States.

    Explaining an ancient thing like slavery to retards is similar to explaining socialism to retards.
