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)

Yes, someone somewhere in my ancestry was enslaved. Don't know who, but someone. It's happened in most peoples ancestry at some point.

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.

My Dad's side is Irish and they were by the English

I'm Cajun. My ancestors, the Acadians, were banished from Canada. Not enslaved though
18 yrs ago - Thursday 5/13/04 - 8:15:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
yeah....it was heinous, dude
18 yrs 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?
18 yrs 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.
18 yrs 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.
18 yrs ago - Thursday 5/13/04 - 8:44:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
i don't think so
18 yrs 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

Not exactly enslaved, but they were peasants in the old country and oppressed laborers in this country.
18 yrs ago - Thursday 5/13/04 - 9:09:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
don't know, don't care.

that is history.

18 yrs ago - Thursday 5/13/04 - 9:25:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
I woudln't know...I wasn't alive.

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.
