Watching Roots on Bet

Came to a scene where fiddler is taking to Kunta and he said," we don't have a chance against the white man because its against the law for a black man to have guns"!
I wonder what would happen to us free men if the gov. had our guns and if slavery would have even been possible if the blacks of those days had guns? Isn't it appropriate that the men without guns were enslaved?

Well Obama is the Lance Armstrong of presidents as well but that isn't the point of the thread. Even if Haley made up almost the entire story, it is positive that blacks wouldn't have been enslaved if they had the right to have arms.

Interesting - I never knew Roots was a hoax.

I enjoyed the book and the mini-series. It actually motivated me to invigorate my own genealogical research.

I thoroughly enjoyed the mini series years ago when it aired originally. This is the first time I've seen parts of it since then.
