Those we call "Native

were put to work on Cherokee farms in the new tribal home, raising
cotton, corn, and garden crops, and tending hogs and cattle. ... During
the antebellum decade, slavery reached its peak among the Five Civilized
Tribes. The Cherokee, numbering only about 20,000 themselves, owned
nearly 5,000 black slaves; the Choctaw 2,500; the Creeks 2,000; and the
Chickasaw and Seminole about a thousand each. To protect their slave
property, the Five Civilized Tribes, except for a few dissident
factions, sided with the Confederacy when the Civil War erupted."
government did not own slaves; people did. Conservative Dinesh D'Souza
estimates that no more than 10 Republicans, out of tens of thousands of
slave owners, owned slaves. The Ku Klux Klan was founded by Democrats.
Congressional Democrats were overwhelmingly opposed to the 13th, 14th
and 15th amendments. As a percentage of their party, more Republicans

was built on the backs of slaves."
Ta-Nehisi Coates, testifying at a
recent congressional hearing on reparations, made the following claim
about slave-produced products: "As historian Ed Baptist has written,
enslavement -- quote -- 'shaped every crucial aspect of the economy and
politics of America, so that, by 1836, more than $600 million, almost
half of the economic activity in the United States, derived directly or
indirectly from the cotton produced by the million-odd slaves.'"
