JP Morgan Chase’s Slavement When you heard the word “slavery”, you knew that it related to abusiveness, inhumanity, and brutality with keeping the slaves to work 24/7 without payment, abusing them if they don’t follow the direct order and letting them died slowly without giving them any food. African-American had been enslaved in The United States of America since early 17th century. Slavery had its origin with the first English Colonization of North America in Virginia in 1607, even though African slaves were brought to Spanish Florida in 1607.⁽¹) Furthermore, it had been more than twelve million African were shipped to America from 16th to 19th century to work as slaves. At that point of time, slaves didn’t have their own rights to fight for themselves. I personally think that slavery was one of the most unethical issues that ever happened in The United States of America, and one of those many cases pointed out to the second-biggest bank in The U.S., JP Morgan Chase, which had two predecessors in Louisiana that had customers that appear to have used enslaved individuals.⁽2⁾ Even though the law already persistent the slavery case clearly with the adoption of the Thirteen Amendment to the United States Constitution in 1865, JP Morgan Chase extended loans to slave-owners using slaves as collateral for the loans, consolidated lawsuit alleges.⁽3⁾ JP Morgan Chase hired a Maryland research firm and found that its predecessors had approximately 13,000 enslaved individuals as collateral on loans and took ownership of approximately 1,250 of them when the plantation owners defaulted on the loans.⁽4⁾ JP Morgan Chase’s involvement in this case because there was a link between JP Morgan’s predecessors which were Citizens Bank and Canal Bank, and Bank One which JP Morgan bought in 2004.

The court rejected Scott’s appeal, referring it to that African American doesn’t have any rights under the Constitution.
What caused the Civil War? Is it accurate to say that the Civil War was about slavery? If slavery or even the slavery extension issue caused the war then why was there not a war in 1820 or 1832 or 1846 or 1850 or 1854? The American Civil War was and is one of the most horrific casualty causing wars the United States has ever been involved in; it was a war that waged for over four years and caused over 600,000 casualties and dead.

Frederick was born on the eastern shore of Maryland. His mother was a slave, and his father is supposedly his white slave master. He was mainly raised by his grandmother. His mother died when he was just seven years old, and his aunt was severely beaten in front of him and that moment was burned into his brain and that image lasted in his memory for the rest of his life, shortly after he was sent to live with his master’s brother. Douglas was encouraged to read first by his master’s wife, but her husband felt differently, and said these words “learning would spoil the best nigger in the world” (140).
