8. I toured one in LA, the guide was interesting, she gave credit to all for the running of the

Plantation but I would definitely say she tried hard putting owners up high on the pedestal, I recall how she stressed the lady of the house worked tirelessly from dusk to dawn, she did give high credit to the hard work of the slaves in running it but you get the feeling she knew she walked a thin line trying to honor the owners...very informational and she did talk about the book written by the man illegally sold into slavery, she reccomended it saying it offered truth as well...

All in all I would have liked to finish tour but my other half was ready to go early (sigh)

This was the one we stopped at....it is heartbreaking to know what actually occurred so very often, I remember when Roots came out, after the initial shock, many white people began how else to explain it, almost a deliberate diversion tactic used to white wash the horror of humans actually treating other humans in such a manner by altering the narrative....

It's why racism still survives so wide spread today..
