Nope.

Part of them, Native Americans

Yes, they were enslaved by the Pharoahs. My people have been suffering for thousands of years!

Worse, we were the Irish immigrants. Slaves were at least considered worth something, the Irish weren't. (Neither were the Chinese)

15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 5/13/04 - 4:06:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, someone somewhere in my ancestry was enslaved. Don't know who, but someone. It's happened in most peoples ancestry at some point.
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 5/13/04 - 4:32:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nope, just forced relocation.

Not long ago my greatgrandparents and grandparents were under the British/ Dutch rule.

My greatgrandfather was a doctor so he was treated with respect by the British, and he was chummy with the Brits, I guess that makes him a betrayer(to his own people).

Not Enslaved, but the Scottish were oppressed by the English.
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 5/13/04 - 5:13:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
yup..by the dirty scummy grimy turks who should all die
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 5/13/04 - 5:14:33 PM EST (GMT-5)

My Dad's side is Irish and they were by the English
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 5/13/04 - 8:08:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm Cajun. My ancestors, the Acadians, were banished from Canada. Not enslaved though
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 5/13/04 - 8:15:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
yeah....it was heinous, dude
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 5/13/04 - 8:16:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm of Irish/English/Native American descent. My 12th great and further back grandfathers were southern land and slave owners. That kind of puts me in just about every category, doesn't it?
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 5/13/04 - 8:33:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not in the last 1000 years, at least.
My Scottish and Irish ancestors fled less than ideal political situations, but they weren't slaves.
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 5/13/04 - 8:40:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
Oh, just indentured servants. Not much difference, the way I look at it.
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 5/13/04 - 8:44:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
i don't think so
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 5/13/04 - 8:48:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
that lady in the picture on the left is my great-great-grandmother's best friend Ruth
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 5/13/04 - 8:53:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not exactly enslaved, but they were peasants in the old country and oppressed laborers in this country.
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 5/13/04 - 9:09:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
don't know, don't care.

15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 5/13/04 - 9:25:41 PM EST (GMT-5)

My family on my mother's side is Cherokee, and they were enslaved until about 4 generations ago; and my family on my father's side is French, and they were enslaved for a very short time by the Canadians.
