This includes slave owners that were white, native American and black. All three peoples owned slaves.
But here is something more important. Look at these names:
JP Morgan, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, New York Life, Tiffany & Co, Aetna, Brooks Brothers, Norfolk Southern Railroad, AIG, Wachovia, USA Today, Lehman Brothers, N M Rothschild & Sons Bank in London, Fleetboston, Brown Brothers Harriman, Canadian National Railway Company, Barclays, Brown University, Dartmouth College, Rutgers, Princeton, Harvard and Yale.
Why mention those companies you may wonder. It’s because I want to show you the correlation between large corporations and slavery.
Since the census data reflects that approximately 1.3% of the population owned slaves, I would feel safe saying that the majority of slaves were owned by big corporations, given the way that they are enslaving us and marketing social justice now.
Most of the white working-class Americans you walk past every day on the street probably have no direct connection to a single slave owner. On the other hand, the U.S. corporate nepotism machine has a slew of them.
These same institutions that profited from slavery also profit from private prisons.Source
