‘You can call them slaves if you want to... I would call them workers,’ Alamance commissioner says

Alamance commissioner Tim Sutton referred to slaves as workers during a meeting of the commission. Sutton was referring to his great-grandfather's service in the Confederate army during the Civil War and said “It is my understanding that when he died ... that some guys on the farm, you can call them slaves if you want to, but I would just call them workers, that they raised a good bit of my family. When the time came, my great-grandmother gave them land.'
