Bryant's story is ignored by historians. The notion of a black man thriving during the height of slavery is, quite frankly, an embarrassment to revisionists and multiculturalists. They prefer a false narrative in which a culture of whip-snapping white plantation owners damned their hordes of slaves to long hours of picking cotton in the hot Dixie sun.

There were many -- thousands -- of black slave owners in the South. Copy the text. It may forever disappear.
