Was it us policy to kill smart slaves?

No. There was never a US Government policy to kill smart slaves.There is, however, no doubt that many slave owners believed "a literate slave was a dangerous slave" and would stifle attempts to educate slaves, through litigation and/or intimidation.Starting in the mid 1700's, several states passed laws prohibiting slave education.While these laws typically did not clarify any consequences for the slaves who might attain literacy, the financial consequences for teachers were clear.See Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass an American Slave, written by Frederick Douglass, for further information.

What did David Livingstone think of slave trade?

Were there black slave owners?

Not in the USA because to be a slave you had to have black blood in your system which means that if you had black blood in your system you were not considered human but cattle and therefore a slave. However outside America there were plenty of black slave traders. And black tribesmen involved in selling other black people into slavery. The whites were the end users; the blacks and the Arabs were the suppliers. This is not true at all. William Ellison was a Black slave owner in South Carolina and the majority of slave owners in New Orleans were Black. William Ellison, whose slave name was April, became a slave magnate and expanded his business throughout the south, from South Carolina to the Mississippi River. I would strongly suggest you Google "Black Slave Owners" and I guarantee that you will have a plethora of information.
