    "Affected by slavery?!" Every slave descendant is "Affected by slavery" unless you're descended from all free people.
    Now, I did see a youtube vid from Wanda Sykes where she told of her family from one of Louis Gates' "Finding Your Roots" episodes that one of her ancestors was a white Irish indentured servant who had a child with an African slave.
    Since the children followed the mother, those descendants were free. But that was still just one side of her geneaology. So, the other side probably came from slaves.
    Ion get this "Affected by slavery" stuff. Kampala and Elizabeth can have a seat.
