All the principal families of Norwich, Hartford, and New Haven were said to have one or two slaves. By 1774, half of all the ministers, lawyers, and public officials owned slaves, and a third of all the doctors. But Connecticut's large slave population apparently was based in the middle class. More people had the opportunity to own slaves than in Massachusetts or Rhode Island, so more did so. Colonialism breeds racism and is why we should never support it ever again around the world let alone fund it. Certain places on earth still practice colonial racism and ethnic cleansing. We saw South Africans experience such racism. Ukraine is experiencing the brute force of Russia. We also support pure racism of millions in the middle east who practice colonialism and build illegal settlements according to our state department.
