At one time, and for a long time, the largest slaveholder in Charleston, South Carolina was a freed slave. It did not seem to bother him that his fellow countrymen were enslaved. Now, should blacks who owned slaves pay reparations or is that just the white man's burden? Slavery exists to this very day in Africa. Where is the outrage from America's children of former slaves? There is none. They gain no pity or profit from it.
