They discussed it among themselves and said, If we say, From heaven, he will ask, Then why didnt you believe him?
26 But if we say, Of human originwe are afraid of the people, for they all hold that John was a prophet.
27 So they answered Jesus, We dont know.
You are right, of course. My point, however, is that while there were black slaves used in tobacco it was the introduction of rice farming (mainly by the Brits working out of the Caribbean where black slavery was already well established) that really saw the big rise in the use of black slaves in the southern states.
