Mandela Effect EXPLAINED - Eli Whitney

He's white, obviously, but there is an interesting story about the cotton gin, the irony of its invention and who deserves the credit. Footnote: **the "brass ankles** mentioned in the video were mostly Cherokee and Catawba families who claimed status as african american in the NC/SC census so they could own land (my maternal grandparents folks). NC does not have any federally recognized tribes or reservations, only those on the state level. The **Melungo** were my paternal grandparents folks, Croatan/Roanoac, who were closely related to Seminole and Gullah communities.
***Update*** Catherine Greene did NOT free her slaves, she and her new husband had over 200 at the dungeness plantation in GA. Hopefully, they all ran away after her fat ass died.
