Black Slave Owner and Breeder in South Carolina ~ The Interesting Story of William Ellison

5394 ratings | 1164006 views
https://www.facebook.com/hiddencolumbia/videos/10150197461001481/ ....William Ellison was one of the wealthiest men in the South as well as being a black, former slave. He owned cotton gins, plantations, and 68 slaves. And from accounts of the time, he wasn't very nice...At the peak of slavery in the United States, large numbers of free Negroes owned black slaves; in fact, in numbers disproportionate to their representation in society at large. In 1860 only a small minority of whites owned slaves. According to the U.S. census report for that last year before the Civil War, there were nearly 27 million whites in the country. Some 8 million of them lived in the slaveholding states. The census also determined that there were fewer than 385,000 individuals who owned slaves. Even if all slaveholders had been white, that would amount to only 1.4 percent of whites in the country (or 4.8 % of southern whites owning one or more slaves, however, around 30% for free blacks owned slaves). In the rare instances when the ownership of slaves by free Negroes is acknowledged in the history books, justification centers on the claim that black slave masters were simply individuals who purchased the freedom of a spouse or child from a white slaveholder and had been unable to legally manumit them. Although this did indeed happen at times, it is a misrepresentation of the majority of instances, one which is debunked by records of the period on blacks who owned slaves. These include individuals such as Justus Angel and Mistress L. Horry, of Colleton District, South Carolina, who each owned 84 slaves in 1830. In fact, in 1830 a fourth of the free Negro slave masters in South Carolina owned 10 or more slaves; eight owning 30 or more.

As a black man,If it wasn't for the role that Africans played in the trans Atlantic slave trade there probably wouldn't be a single black person in America,these are the ones that sold us out. And anyone of us could have been from a tribe that engaged in the trans Atlantic slave trade by capturing other Africans and selling them to slave traders who imported us to America etc. As black ppl our problem has always been a case of black on black victimization starting in Africa just as it is today in America. So how proud are you now about your African,and native American Indian heritage, because Indians we're also slave owners and produced cazillions of babies with African women,which is why so many of our have Indian blood in them.
Anthony Stanton (9 hours ago)
Hold it, hold it,as a black man.Have you ever thought about what the Africans did to each other in the jungles of Africa ? Well brutal black on black slavery had been a common practice for 1,000's of years. And tribe's like the Dahomey African warrior kingdom became dirt wealthy by selling cazillions of Africans to Arab Muslims,and Dutch slave traders who imported them to various countrys.So the Africans who were enslaved in America we're first enslaved in Africa by Africans. And if you think that was bad the first slave owner in America was a black man,and if you think that was bad,there were 3,775 free black slave owners in the South. And if you think that was bad, Some of the native American Indian tribe's we're brutal slave owners, which is why most of our ppl have Indian blood in them. The good news though,is that white abolishnes ended slavery in America and Europe.And instead of showing appreciation we denounce them as racist and demand reperations !

One or two black families trying to exploit this horrible sin, will NEVER whitewash it from the white man’s hands. Heaven has witnessed the millions of lynchings, beatings, rapes, throwing of dead bodies into the ocean over 4 centuries during the middle passage. And the black soldiers who were murdered on the spot who tried to surrender as pows to the South during the Civil War. And certainly no record of slaves who were murdered for 400 years with the blessings of white law enforcement by ordinary white citizens who claimed blacks were acting uppity towards them. So you tell Blacks to stop talking about Slavery, while you do EVERYTHING you can to go about revising it, editing it, leaving out the truth and even teaching the next generation that Blacks came here as immigrants, which is such a bald face lie. Yes, you don’t want Blacks to talk about History because they tell the truth, while you will be dishonest about it. You can’t accept the great evils of the past and how many whites have benefited from that past, therefore, you are certainly not going to own up to any collective racial thinking either! Only 4% of whites may have owed slaves, but they encouraged the remaining poor racist whites to help do the killings, slave catching, supervising telling them they were still superior to blacks. That’s why racist thinking is pasted on. You won’t teach any contributions of Blacks in the history books, but get angry if they have to learn it by studying African African History. You only want the good things that whites have done past ed down, only pass down negative things about Blacks, hence your racist mind!!!

I don't believe this especially when it's coming from a white person...White people try to take the fact that their ancestor probably owned slaves out of their conscious because it makes them uncomfortable so they try to project a situation like this back on to us to make themselves feel better.

Either he was a genius or the rest of those white slave owners were all idiots! One moment he was a slave and the next his got 68 slaves. I guest the slaves were free for former slaves!!! Black brothers and sisters we need to challenge all these bullshit stories that pops up behind political motives! These people have been lying to us for four hundred years and about everything!!! The United Nations has judged that the US owes descendants of slaves trillions of dollars, and now we are told by them, the former slave masters, that the first slave owner and the largest slave owner was a black man masquerading as his former master! A story unheard of 20 years ago! All lies once again!!!

Propaganda!!!! I don't fault white or black slave owners because it was written in the Bible that this would happen because of our disobedience, The Most High allowed our enemies to rise up against us (but only for a season). FYI...you must first read with understanding who the true Isrealites were to understand the curses that were put on them. FYI ..not the Jews as the world has been decieved into believing because we don't read the Bible for ourselves. None the less what I do have problem with is the white man is the most devilish creature to ever roam this earth and they ALWAYS find a way to try to diminish their role in anything. That sure sounds like a serpent to me! Sad part is most of them believe their own illusions of "good" in their minds. It's going to be a sad day when they leave this world and meet their TRUE maker.

Sherri Solomon Different tribes looked out for themselves, there was no sense of "we are all black, we are all African" at that time, especially if other tribes were your enemies. If you were a tribe and whites approached you offering guns and telling you that your enemies next to you were also getting guns from them, you'd probably accept the whites' solicitation too. Native Americans had the same thing. " *The increased rise of the gun-slave trade forced the other tribes to participate or their refusal to engage in enslaving meant they would become targets of slavers.* " https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slavery_among_Native_Americans_in_the_United_States

Just like with the transatlantic slave trade when they pretend that whites were just out on a cruise in the Atlantic Ocean when Africans popped up out of nowhere with other Africans and forced themselves upon the whites and gave them instructions of what to do with them. No mention is made how it was whites who went around to different enemy tribes on the coast with guns to get them to trade, something whites also did with Native Americans. If you mention that to these people, they get quite real quick.

The first slave owners were black! at that time, they were already selling slaves to Portugal, Spain before Trans Atlantic Slavery began. This is why Black People debate Malcolm X and Dr. Martin Luther king Jr., Who was RIGHT??? The answer is "BOTH MEN" White Anerica has many stands on race, religion and politics, and the same applies to Black America, despite the fact that Malcolm X hade a very valid argument it is about the Theater of the Possible. History has shown that many of the negros in America still inject race when it has no validity in the problems in the Black Community. The SELFISHNESS of our men and WICKEDNESS of our women is the problem. Black America still will not admit that Dr. King did not fail, Black America "DID", affirmative action opened doors for negros in the workforce all over America and yet, you "STILL" abandoned your children, do NOT respect one another which is why you MURDER one another every day in America at a alarming rate, BUT, Black Lives Matter, YAH RIGHT, as long as Black America keep playing this game, you are going to continue on this path of self destruction.

Slavery is the most evil activity of human beings. But no single ethnic group can be identified exclusively as slave owners or slaves. Here are some facts. You can check if you don't believe them. The United States accounted for about 5% of the slaves that were brought to the Americas. Muslim raiders took over 5 million Europeans from their villages along the North Mediterranean coast and sold them in to slavery in North Africa. At least that many and probably several times more Eastern Europeans were taken as slaves by the Ottoman Turks. By comparison about 500,000 Africans were slaves in the US. There are many accounts of primitive tribes going on raiding parties for the purpose of gathering slaves. The Aztecs took slaves by tens of thousands to sacrifice to the sun god. We could go on for pages.

This is fictional, first off there was no way the white slave owners would have been ok with a black slave owner with more land or money than them. Their jealousy and arrogance would have drove them to take his land and enslave him. Example: Rosewood, anytime a black person had any kind of success it was destroyed. History is exactly that His (white) Story and they are steadily trying to rewrite it to make themselves feel better. Problem is they have forgotten all of the information out there already. Good old common sense will tell you this story is a lie. Nice try
nthnpark0 (2 days ago)
L C M It's a half-truth used to try to pass blame. Just like with the transatlantic slave trade when they pretend that whites were just out on a cruise in the Atlantic Ocean when Africans popped up out of nowhere with other Africans and forced themselves upon the whites and gave them instructions of what to do with them. No mention is made how it was whites who went around to different enemy tribes on the coast with guns to get them to trade, something whites also did with Native Americans. If you mention that to these people, they get quite real quick. There were two communities in South Carolina and Louisiana (known as "creoles" ) where some single white men with biracial children would recognize and leave money and property to their children or have other whites take them in as apprentices, (in contrast to most other biracial children who were kept as slaves) and these creole children were allowed to have (in some cases) plantations. Quite a few of these creoles were even allowed to intermarry into the local white population, and most whites with black ancestry today got their black ancestry through them. That's the detail, but if you actually go into this detail, it would ruin the agenda that the "black slave owner" claim is trying to do, which is pass blame for American slavery onto blacks and call blacks "hypocrites" So what you'll see these people do instead is just pretend that black slaves somehow freed themselves and came up with money to become plantation masters out of the blue.

Much is missing from this footage lol he was my mulatto and he was given a trade by the slave which most highly was his father.... sometimes they would give their offspring's real estate to live a pretty decent life and give them their freedom papers. Many times the Freeman of mixed race would own his family members to keep them from being sold and to keep the family together. It was also sad historically that he was for the Civil War... or acting... mask on to stay in good standing as such... maybe no acting at all.. his way of life how he was raised... all he knew. It doesn't make it right but it is history and for the most part he probably was playing the long game to keep his family together.... he did not have the workers in the best of conditions publicly....Will never know what was in his mindset. Because of his mixed race and his wealth he was able to worship alongside white families at the historic church and statesburg which is also where my great-grandmother is from . In my family we have mixed race mulatto people and my 5th generation grandfather was fathered by a slave owner and he was given real estate as a slave... but many who had the access do to their Birthright, owned their families ... which kept the family unit together because Freedom was nowhere in sight. Slavery.... a horrific time yet resilient ones endured.

ANTHONY JOHNSON looks like he is East African. 98% of American slaves were taken from WEST Africa. The fact that the East Africans were not "as Black" as West Africans, placed them in an elevated position to do something like this. This still goes on in Africa, the brown-skinned Africans (called light-skinned) are considered BETTER than black-skinned Africans, and in Mauritania they own Black slaves and treat them horribly.
nthnpark0 (1 day ago)
Amalgamaite Lewis Hayden "looks mixed race" because *he was mixed race* , according to Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lewis_Hayden Again, the purpose of this video is to pass blame for racial chattel plantation slavery in America, as well as other bad things that happen with race, onto black people and call black people "hypocrites" and make false equivalencies. Historical accuracy is *NOT* the goal of these people (because it would contradict their agenda), who are generally associated with neo-confederates and other conservatives like the alt-right. So *of course* they just grabbed an old picture of any old black man they could find, and tried to use him to depict Anthony Johnson. They *WEREN'T* going to actually fact check who the man in the picture actually was (a former slave and abolitionist, and not some black man who just became freed and became a plantation owner out the blue) *NOR* were the even going to actually fact check *WHEN* the photo or image was taken (in the *1800's* and *NOT* the *1600's* when Anthony Johnson *actually lived* ) They were not even going to take a second to *look at the clothes the man is wearing in the photo* and ask themselves *if anyone in the 1600's would actually be dressed like that* . As for the real Anthony Johnson himself, these people also could care less what happened to him later on, like when a white man forged a letter and basically stole 100 acres of his land https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthony_Johnson_(colonist)#Later_life
Amalgamaite (2 days ago)
He may very well be, but he LOOKS LIKE a mixed East African who ancestors came from Ethiopia or Somalian region. He is DISTINCTIVELY not from the same tribes that most African Americans were taken from because they looked NOTHING LIKE THAT. In fact, he resembles the half Black half White slaves back during slavery. That's what the first light-skinned people looked like. That's why it would not surprise me one bit if he were indeed Mulatto. And take into consideration that the picture at 3:43 is of a middle aged man.

Amalgamaite Hold on a second. The man depicted at 3:43 of this video is a black abolitionist named Lewis Hayden.

Actually this story is false in many ways. He was not a slave but an indentured servant who actually inherited his slaves. Yeah with just a little research you could find out more of this story. He also freed many of the actual slaves that he inherited and many of them chose to remain working for him because he was actually good to them. Word of wise to everyone watching this NEVER trust a story esp about slavery from a white person.

John again, I couldn't agree more. You hit it out of the park with the truth of your comment. I gave you a thumbs up ONLY because I could not give you a standing ovation! Peace.

Debra Combs I know and it's so sad that people or a system has to be this way. It's more of an elite thing than a white thing because just like with non white the elite also hate the poor which includes poor white people as well. To stay in power you need a poor base opposition. During American slavery and even before Africans where an easy target because they did not care for resources and wealth as much. They did just not enough to commit genocide.

As a white person, I couldn't agree more. This 'reporter' clearly has an agenda.

Native americans owned each other before whitey ever got to the Americas. Once blacks were introduced as slaves in the Americas, indians would go on to own black slaves at times too.

Be smart viewers. How can any black man in American have a name Anthony Johnson? Let's take a look at how blacks got thier last names. Johnson belonged to the slave owners would that man not have gotten his name from his master? Who in the slavery era kept property? Was it blacks ? Who in the south? Just as things are evident from the war and the entire black south just 70 years ago that blacks only had what they were given. They were not allowed to do anything . So let me give you something to think about. A white man who wants to be rich and not to look like a slaver only needs to put a black man in charge of his plantation and this is also why that said plantation was able to remain . Surely no white man would allow this place to be free from their control unless it was really owned by a white man. Now do your diligence. And look at what took place even amongst freed black men all over the colonies. You will see the skin of the man made him marked for slavery free papers would only do him good around law abiding people. A black could be taken just because his papers were not with him. A slave all over again. Wake up people. Don't accept these false videos without looking into the truth. Remember the skin of a man in the south made him what he would be . The color you had put you in the chains or in the pits or in the fields or in the grave or in the tree for the birds to eat. How could any black man have so much rich stock and not get taken ? The answer? He was not black. The truth owner was white. Wake up
