A lot of Scots got transported in the same way after the ’45.

  1. I saw the manifest of a slave ship headed for Virginia. There were 5 MacIntoshes listed as “indentured servants” along with about 15 or 20 others from Ireland & Scotland. Because they were white, they were put (chained), in the first level of the ships hold. The black slaves were on the decks below. I assume that, for those folks “white privilege” meant that they were subjected to less bodily fluids traveling downward.
