    They were forcibly kidnaped, raped and tortured by slave owners! They were owned by their masters which makes them automatically American citizens! Just as if they were adopted children!

    Funny how BLACKS in America who make a LIVING WAGE and own a HOUSE seem they are BETTER or on the same level as WHITES, outside of the major urban areas they will always be looked at like the rest of NON-WHITES as a LOWER CLASS.

    Did Ben forget he’s black and thought if he accumulated enough money for being a brain surgeon and also hung out with 45 that he was white.

    Trevor’s right, because Africans were taken against their own will, they aren’t considered immigrants. Now the Europeans, those mothafuckers are the true immigrants/illegal aliens of North America.
