You do know that the census-takers wrote everything in, correct? Even educated land-owners did not write in the census.

Fine example of what?

Point is “Dems” didn’t create slavery any more than “Repubs” did.

Good luck with that.

freepers love to roll with “everybody knows” history if there’s partisan advantage to be had by ignoring inconvenient facts. We have Dinesh to thank for some of this.

You are still projecting and not using your head very much.

Once the country was formed, the Constitution was ratified and political parties formed which party fought the end of slavery to the bitter end? Which party instituted Jim Crow laws, beginning with anti-gun laws for blacks only, and which party continued to exact revenge for losing their beloved institution by filibustering the first Civil Rights Act bills?

I’d say that history has a bit more meaning than how slavery began but you go ahead and play your sophistic games in defense of the Democrat Party.

Which makes my point. The African slaves did not sign papers to become indentured servants by their own free will. Thank you for providing support for my case.

I never claimed that the "Dems" did create slavery so fine point you've made there.

No, I’m not a big researcher into it, but whatever I see about Irish complaints (which I always suspect thanks to bogus claims juxtaposing the over-influence of Tammany Hall which belies the bellyaching) usually is found to be inflation and exaggeration of any problems they might have. So it is on the ‘net. Many net sites will argue against what they claim is something trumped up thanks to the net...and so on. It’s as if Irish are always trying to be the attention-seeking victim (like a certain other demographic). I call BS.

You skipped over tobacco.

Tobacco was the huge crop before cotton.

NO ONE wrote on census documents except census-TAKERS, official government agents.

Your quip was a non-sequitur since no slave OR genius millionaire would be writing on the census form - it’s not the way it was done back then. Ipso facto the quip made no sense.

My point, which was made earlier on the thread, was about the documents one signs to become an indentured servant. It was the reply to me about census documents that was non-sequitur. Do try to keep up with the context.

My 9th Great Grandfather, Samuel Weaver came to Martin’s Hundred just south of Jamestown in 1621 as an indentured servant to William Harwood, the governor of Martin’s Hundred. After Pohawtan’s attack in 1623, many of the inhabitants were killed, including a free holder named John Jackson. His widow, Ann married Samuel Weaver and paid off his indenture when thereby he became a land owner and free holder.

All indentures were for a specified period of time, in Virginia this was usually for 7 years after which they became free, received a grant of land and farming utensils. Very different than chattel slaves who were never freed and their offspring also became slaves.

It may be true that a few of the first arrivals were indentured servants, but that arrangement was very short lived. Virginia prohibited making slaves of Christians and Indian slaves invariable ran off in short order. African slaves were imported by the Portuguese to provide labor required for plantations, particularly for tobacco, indigo, rice, and sugar. A slave economy caught on pretty quick in the Tidewater of Virginia.

Awesome.

You may want to contact his office to help him and the DNC.

You have to love the usual crowd arguing on this thread that technically, he's correct.

Observer: "Northam accidentally shot himself in the head with a 9mm semiautomatic."

Freeper corrector dude: "Actually, it was a .38 caliber revolver. That makes a YUGE difference."

Sorry, you disconnected from any reference to an indenture document in this particular thread of postings. You may have meant to go with your indenture pix, but you only replied to the census pix here. No harm no foul, but it does not thread back to any indenture pix. So I was following quite fine, thanks.

Falsehoods do NOT help YOUR side, no matter how negative or positive.
