I assume you're joking in which case: Classic! I love it.

Let's take this to its logical extreme where people who never owned a slave in their life are not able to use the only language they know how to speak: English, because some of their distant ancestors owned slaves. What about black people whose distant ancestors were actually slaves but only know how to speak English? Should they also stop using English?

The concept reaches ridiculously humorous outcomes in mere milliseconds so I think it's worth further exploration.

Maybe we should use French, Dutch, Portugese or Spanish... dang! They were all colonizers also...

A crazy thing I heard of recently is that in the 1600s the English enslaved hundreds of thousands of Irish (white) people also - sending them to the Carribean. They were actually worth only about 1/5th the value of an African slave for some reason - maybe they blistered up with sunburn and were in constant pain in the hot, sunny climate that they their skin had not evolved to deal with.

It was enlightening to realize that some white people were also slaves to other white people.

Ah, it's a strange, mixed up world we live in...
