Yes.

And somebody shot him.

John Wilkes Booth killed him.

ethan_shout

Yeah, because he was jealous of him that he freed the slaves.

 

rudy_question

No. Ethan, he wasn’t exactly jealous. Where do you get this from?

And they went back to their country.

 

marianna

No. They didn’t go back. But they were freed.

 

ethan_shout

Yes, the were slaves because they were old!

marianna

No! What are you talking about?! They weren’t slaves because they were old!
They were slaves because they were black.

 

ethan_question
