Did all whites own some land and had slaves in the south?
ANSWER: Not all Whites in the South owned land, nor did they have slaves. Many Whites were just as poor as the Black slaves. Many had to hire themselves out to do work for the wealthy land owners. Some Whites were sharecroppers with powerful plantation owners. Of course the wealthy land owners would take advantage of the Whites, just as they did with their slaves.
