John Legend and Wanda Sykes on PBS' Finding Your Roots
I usually don't watch this show & I seriously don't like John Legend (& I'm lukewarm on Wanda Sykes) but I found the Legend segment of this episode interesting. It gets into the nature of the relationship of slaves and masters outside of the typical liberal caricature and it gets into interstate law regarding people and property. Ohio & Kentucky come out looking pretty good (except for some KY scumbags) but VA comes off pretty lame. They were, of course, one of the original American states that demanded slavery be legal in "the land of the free" & blocked recognition of our Caribbean neighbor, Haiti.
