    "...Large numbers of free Blacks owned black slaves in numbers disproportionate to their representation in society. According to the federal census of 1830, free blacks owned more than 10,000 slaves in Louisiana, Maryland, South Carolina, and Virginia. The majority of black slave-owners lived in Louisiana and planted sugar cane."

    Only means that some Blacks were as depraved as Whites in owning slaves. It is no justification for the institution of slavery. You only show the sin of owning slaves was not restricted to White folk.
