They deleted it for me so I didn't see your answer. I screwed up while editing it and it ended up being posted twice. Now what was your answer?

That is what I believe is known in the vernacular as BULL.

She is incorrect in saying that. She could say a "descendent of slaves" or "descendent of a former slave".

Well ... maybe she was referring to the fact that all Americans are enslaved by the government ... EXCEPT for the slave-owners (aka: "civil servants")

Thinking it was metaphorical.....used to be controlled by others, by pressure and social expectations, and now she isnt.....otherwise, what shes trying to tell us is that she was around in 1865 and is in her late 140's.

There would be no Democrat Party without victims. If you aren't one yet, they will find a way to make you one.
