Since it's African-American Heritage Month...`

Post by Jered »

I present to you a story of the Casor lawsuit. Anthony Johnson was a black guy from Angola.
So Casor became the first person to be arbitrarily declared a slave for life in the U.S. (An earlier case had ended with a man named John Punch being declared a slave for life as a punishment for trying to escape his indentured servitude. His fellow escapees, who were white, were not punished in this way.)
