Northam Calls Slaves ‘Indentured Servants from Africa’

"Just 90 miles from here in 1619, the first indentured servants from Africa landed on our shores in Ole Point Comfort," Northam said

Embattled Virginia Governor, Ralph Northam (D-VA), referred to people that came to America as slaves from Africa as “indentured servants from Africa” during an interview with CBS News’ Gayle King on Sunday.

Northam sat down with King for his first interview since the Virginian-Pilot published a photo from Northam’s medical school yearbook showing “two men, one in blackface and one in a Ku Klux Klan robe and hood, on the same page as the governor.”

King asked Northam where he would like to begin, pointing out that it had been a difficult week for the people of Virginia.

“Well, it has been a difficult week, and you know if you look at Virginia’s history, we’re now at the 400-year anniversary. Just 90 miles from here in 1619, the first indentured servants from Africa landed on our shores in Ole Point Comfort, what we call now Fort Monroe,” Northam said

“Also known as slavery,” King interjected.

Wow...we all know history started at today's breakfast for Democrats and this proves it.

The first line of this indenture agreement has something you never saw on any slave "agreement."

When Lincoln freed the Democrats’ slaves it made them pretty mad.

I love when liberals fail to live up to their impossible politically correct standards.

Bingo. That has more truth than "Indentured Servants". Slaves are slaves - they didn't willingly sign on as slaves, totally unwilling. Next he'll call them Documented Visitors or some such made-up garbage.

In the early days, there was little difference in the way black and white servants were treated.

Many Irish were sold into slavery in Jamaica.

It wasn't until quite a few years latter that the strong color lines were drawn.

It is not often that you get to watch a political self-immolation.

If I was a black man I would insist that he remained governor. They’ll be able to pound this pinata for anything they want whenever they want. They won’t even have to hit him very hard, he’ll be dropping goodies on his own.

Is it fair to say that the only reason he is keeping his job is that he favors infanticide, as dictated by his Planned Parenthood handlers?

In the first 100 years, many many Europeans came to the colonies as indentured servants... They did not consider themselves to be defined as slaves...

He’s in competition with AOC for the dumbest remark of the week.

In 1619 the first boatload of Africans were technically indentured servants to work for a specified term of years. The first official slave owner was an African immigrant, perhaps formerly one of those indentured servants.
