J Mireles : The truth of the matter is that all humans took turns enslaving each other. Slavery has existed as long as there have been humans.

Jazzy Babe : I think the ones enslaved by the Natives should ask for an apology.....

Brady Roberts : Well this doesn't fit the narrative.

lagaman11 : My mind has just been blown. Man's cruelty to other men knows no bounds, race, color, creed, or nationality.

SkepticAll : Well, learn something new every day. Poor Don - I know that revelation had to be mind blowing.

Sonja Shaw : It is true. Native Americans did own slaves. My grandparents are from Alabama which is home of The Chowtaw tribe and doing some reading there was enslavement.

CME : The Natives were not as innocent as people like to think they are.

BestOniichanNA : Sssssh. Don't tell that to Black Israelites

Nakoma Lola. : why is it suprising that natives owned slaves we enslaved other tribes why not blacks

nightflight83 : Narrative busted.

joe mamma : Wait till he finds out that his African Tribe are the ones who sold his ancestors into slavery

4180stephen : But but but how can i be mad at native americans they aint white......................................

Robinhood179 : Wait a minute, does this mean Don now suddenly hates all Indians too? I got money says he never looks at an Indian the same.

Tywin Lannister : Don't worry Don, we ended Red Supremacy over a century ago!

Marie Miller : lots of native american tribes took slaves of other tribes long long before columbus came here. slavery was no new concept brought here by white folks so sorry if this messes stuff up for any of you now you might have to find some other group to hate and blame stuff on... same as in africa lots of tribes had slaves from other tribes and almost all africans sold to mostly middle eastern and some white slave traders were sold by other africans into slavery. whites did not go on slave hunting expeditions into africa to capture black folks like wild horses in the plains lol sorry if this wrecked it for you...

I Broke Eddies Ankles : People are so arrogant, acting as if every whitman owned every black man

roxorsoxor : so dissapointed that he couldn't hate on dem white folk

Danny Hatfield : Damn the white man oh wait i mean the red man

Raven Von Krieger : It's not really mind blowing. Let's not forget that before European settlers in the New World the Natives fought other Native tribes and even took Slaves. Many people talk of Native American genocide on behalf of Europeans but never of the battles that tribes fought against one another.

Seven Years : People, including myself, know so little about real history. There were also many black people that owned not only black slaves, but white slaves as well. The narrative doesn't fit the appetite for race division today, but facts are facts. Human beings need a higher authority to answer to. Another interesting link to go along with the one below:

spinocus : "That's mind blowing." No, no it's not Don, and shouldn't be to anyone with an open, educated mind. It's human nature in a nutshell.

Beery : The only difference between whites and every other group when it comes to slavery is they were the first to abolish its practice.

Matthew Wolanski : the "genocide" of nstive americans... slavery was practiced everywhere since the beginning of civilization mr cheadle its not a white thing... in fact in American colonies and even once the united states became a thing. the majority of registered slave owners were black african immgranrs and their descendents. africam slaves were cheaper so they were more abundant but there was never a race qualification for slavery. and the natives were enslaving and killing each other off before the "white man" even got here. I wish ppl would wake up and stop attributing everything to race. I mean the fact that his ancestors slave owners weren't white shouldn't bother him so much, but it does because our culture has made it so everything falls on the white man and the revelation that its not all on whitey is too much for ppl to take in ig

Gelato Musica : Why do those Natives look white to me?

Lohan Cindy : Whats thats famous song from frozen? Oh thats right.

Danny S. : But you black folks keep preaching this "black and brown unity" these people had it out for us since the day we arrived here they were NEVER on our side same with those middle easterners who's slave trade was arguably the same or even more brutal than "da white man" y'all hate so much

SengueDreams : Meaning, all hands are covered in the same sins, no matter the skin.

Nathaniel Lionheart : I'm sure that blacks now feel just as much hatred towards the indigenous folks now as they do towards whites like me right? Nope. Because so long as hating and blaming whites remains an excuse to not have to examine their failed culture, they will blame whites.


Le noir : Datas in the US show that only 8% of white colons owned black African slaves, whiles 2% of native American owned black slaves and nearly 20% of freed black slaves owned black slaves While 40% of black African owned black African slaves in Africa at the same time. And 60% arabs owned black African slaves. Chinese had black African slaves as well for a couple of centuries (tang dynasty) While in Europe, slavery was forbidden by law since the 11th century for most countries.

Kazi Steep : That is heart breaking... I know my Irish ancestors were slaves so u 100% feel the sadness, disgust and anger that the Ancestors of the black slaves feel.. to think what they went thru is beyond sickening..but to go thru all that and then come out the other side belonging no where... awful..

Jeff Albert : That's crazy. And I'm Native American. And Ojibway. That's history to know about other Native Tribes.

Jason : First slave owner in America was a black man. Slavers were Portuguese, Spanish, and AFRICAN for the Atlantic Slave Trade, IE: Americas. America offered to take blacks back to Africa with full supplies, including materials for trade to ensure land ownership for them and their families - most refused as life in America was better. Many who went back to African became slavers and slave owners. Blacks in America today can compare West Africa today to America and see that their ancestors chose to stay as America offered far more for their family. In fact, people screaming about them being in America today and not Africa is due to their ancestors choosing to stay. On top of all of this, every African who offers a loud-mouthed Black American today to come back to Africa to live and help, every single one of them has refused. Akon has extended the hand to countless Blacks in America who talk crap about USA to go to Africa, and every single one of them has refused. Everything stated here is absolute fact. Every race has been a slave. Yes, even all white people. Koreans were slaves to the Japanese recently, and many subgroups in the Middle East AND AFRICA are slaves today to other groups of their own people. Deal with it, move on, better yourselves and stop making people angry with a victim complex.

River Birch : LOL! Well he got a surprise that most of us already knew. Also, many free blacks also owned black slaves. A lot of people need history lessons!

Kayman Fani : Point being. Slavery isn't a purely white issue. People can't accept that slavery was viewed economically. It was smart. This anyone who had a business or a field to care for had slaves. That's it. Indians whites and blacks all took part of slavery.

Marina McKane : I am Creek...Apart of the 5 civilized tribes...I was told we did NOT own blacks as slaves...We let them intermarry and live within our tribe...This guy interpreted what he was reading to Don Cheadle all wrong..

Flash Fordon : Chickasaw don’t offer Don Cheadles ancestors citizenship so he calls them honorary white people as if whites are the understood default enemy, meanwhile white people were the ones making freed blacks citizens. Don Cheadle is only mad because he is a believer in only white people are oppressors and every other race is on black peoples side. Yet in history it has been the exact opposite.

Mark Whitley : So, I'm part Choctaw Indian, my ancestors walked the Trail of Tears, some also owned slaves. I'm not sure if it was the Choctaw ancestors or the White European ancestors that did but this makes sense. But, my other side on my mothers ancestry is German, and I'm actual blood relatives with Hitler's right hand crazy man Herman Goering. I really out to do a DNA test.

Dringle Bells : White liberals making up lies about the redman so they can deflect the fact that their ancestors owned slaves.

Michael Myers : It wuz da native amerikkkanz fault! 😂

VillainousCree1 : I have family who are part black & Native American .......all ya'll trippin

All Music Sucks : *curb your enthusiasm theme music plays

Saint Breaux : Not every white man owned slaves it was only a very small percentage and not every black persons ancestors were slaves. Also how racist is Don cheadle he said "are they honorary white people?" Tf

David Stanley : USA was and still is the cruelest Nation Today they go  to do the same to other people in other nations enslave  and or kill And all Blacks  have to say is    I want mo  black history but they to signed up  to kill in Vietnam Iraqi Afghanistan etc.. the circle continues no one cares no one questions how much  do the natives receive  today to live on?

Konrad Kurze : yeah real funny how other races had black slave but blacks only ever cry about white people

pfuiphxpfui : Not what I heard or read about at all!! Blacks moved to Indian Territory and were accepted as "Brothers" to the tribes there because they could relate to the Black struggle for freedom. Some black men and women even married into the tribes (i.e. Cherokee, etc.) and some were even made Deputy U.S. Marshal's to patrol the Territory by Judge Issac Parker himself. "Freedmen" was a term used by the tribes to describe black men, women, and children. It was basically like a census. The best historical reference to this are the books written by Art Burton. He's researched this subject extensively.

Jared T-F : i had no idea native Americans owned slaves

tallthinkev : Every country has had slaves and people from every country have been slaves.

Nae Xuipper : Don cheadle please do more research into this subject and do not take people's word for things they can never understand and would never look in to to ask about to even ask the right questions. Mr Cheadle please please do your own research!!!!

1besieged : Anthony Johnson first slave owner, he purchased slaves from African slave owner, Anthony was a black man. Slavery : native americans were the first slaves actually, then white irish, history proves this, and native americans allowed some black people to come into their tribes as the blacks ran from the south, and over 630,000 WHITE people died saving the blacks, and NATIVE AMERICANS were massacred to extinction and near extinction, most towns/cities have much less then 1/2% in them, so I have heard all i need to hear of the lies how blacks were enslaved , they had much rights (slaves) could own homes, businesses, livestock and had much freedom, and their lives, the NATIVE AMERICANS however, their tribes were massacred to EXTINCTION & NEAR EXTINCTION.. so wipe those tears black people, you did know my white friends who are part native american picked COTTON in the south.. photos show only blacks, this is untrue, whites, native americans were SLAVES.. you need to learn the facts.. Anytime you work for someone else, you become in a sense a slave, you slaves were paid , may have been housing/food, etc, but you were PAID for your WORK, you were not massacred, infact blacks are around 11% to 12% in USA , again NATIVE AMERICANS under 1/2% in most towns/cities, so enough griping black people.. you were NOT natives . Native American mix comment. freedom of speech USA.. go read up on first American slave owner, then blame your OWN race for blacks being shipped here from Africa.
