  • he dead now dw
  • He's got Yaoi hands.
  • I look at this picture and I realize that this individual's family were probably slaves. He would probably have some fascinating stories to tell. Great pic.
  • Probably his own parents. The 13th amendment was passed in 1865, he appears to be at least 60 in this photo. If we assume that, he was born ~1875 so his parents would have to be born in 1860 at the latest. Unless his parents were fortunate enough to have gained their freedom somehow, they would have been slaves for at least their younger years.
  • Yeah that was my thinking. Better stated than I could of.
  • I followed that line of thought too
