Daviss: hi JHonora

bbenn: Definitely mo moneylol

keli1: he helped build Yale????

Selma: No he went there

keli1: okay,

jhonora: Don't you hate when these shows reveal that within the guest's immediate family there already is a genealogist; it isn't really a new revelation then

evpace: Bon jour jhonora.

jhonora: Bonjour evpace

keli1: Selma, wonder if he is linked to the Bacon Rebellion

Selma: Does he have VA roots..we will find out

Khathu: Hello everyone

Selma: Evening Khathu

keli1: Hello Khathu

bbenn: Hello Khathu

vkn: hi khathu

evpace: Where were the indigenous people,Mative Americans? Native oops

keli1: he knows darn well he didn't do any of his research, acting like he did with the book, lol,

Daviss: hello khathu!

bbenn: jhonora, you are right...what's new if the family historian has also conducted research and written a book?

evpace: keli1 lol

Selma: Becasue the family historians..don't always include it all..just what looks good

bbenn: ok...a bill of slave...maybe that's a new finding.

Khathu: that is not surprising

Selma: Would someone tell me why he is stunned

jhonora: He always make it seem as though slave owning was uncommon, I think it is an expected finding for many wealthy caucasian families

bbenn: they would not include that in the family history...that's property...

Khathu: Most white who do their research do not document their ancestors slave holding past

keli1: it was a way of life whooooo wonder if there are any babies

bbenn: wouldn't that be an interesting finding..pull out the DNA testlol lol

evpace: Surprise,surprise!!

bbenn: what? not aware of slavery in Mass...

keli1: well you talk about the north, it was not as prevelate as the south and a Quaker own means own, no matter if you were a nice owner or not, you OWNed someone

jhonora: It is a good series, but to me, thus far it needs to be named "Blacks Dealing with Whiteness and Whites Dealing with Slavery" lol

keli1: good for Kevin for saying this

evpace: Quakers owned slaves and when you read the minutes of Va meetings some women accepted ec-communication rather than give up their slaves.

Khathu: 35 y/o was considered old back then

Selma: I was gonna say..the life expentency was about 40 or 50\

keli1: sometimes I think the southern states did not allow slaves to read and write, is due to then not being able too why does he keep bringing his stuff in the show, we have went thru his whole family...hmmm

Daviss: lol @ keli1

bbenn: he is making certain that we know his admixturelol lol lol

keli1: well I can bring my stuff out too! lol

Nadasue: LOL... Daughter's friend before they left... "Wow.. I didn't know they left slaves to people in their wills!" Smh...

Khathu: if he do another dna to show the students of color how much white blood they have, i am going to scream i meant dna test

Nadasue: I'm back now, :)

bbenn: ok, let's see how long it will take for him to bring up the admixture issue...

keli1: just shows how deep the "screwing" went on...

bbenn: lol lol lol lol

Khathu: Gates is really silly. His analysis of Lincoln is so incorrect

Nadasue: I've missed a lot. Will have to watch again tomorrow.

Daviss: Now Khathu you know he is a Historians Historian :?

Khathu: The Office of the President has one sole duties and that is to maintain the supremacy of the U.S. Constitution Daviss he is a literature major not a historian

Daviss: could have fooled me Khathu since thats all I see when I hear about him lol

evpace: I thought he majored in history at Yale.

Selma: Was he still owning his own slaves?

Khathu: He is not a trained historian. His speciality is literature. He is an honorary historian........

evpace: OK thanks Khathu.

Selma: Wonder if she is in Freedmen's Bureau records

Daviss: Gates: I was interested in American political history. My first degree was from Yale, in history, and John Morton Blum was my mentor. who is Blum Khathu

Khathu: Undergrad degree does not classify someone as a historian

Daviss: Aha!!

Khathu: He is considered an American literary critic He is not even considered an historian by his peers

Daviss: Selma new Masters champion named Bubba

Selma: I know Daviss..caught it on the news

Khathu: Blum was a political historian
