<<Should we all come up with verifiable documentation stating that none of our ancestors owned slaves? Why stop there. I'm sure at least one of my ancestors killed somebody at some point. Shouldn't I be in jail?

Heh, heh! I suspect you would also need certification that neither you nor any of your ancenstors were responsible for using petroleum, metals, coal, tress or other natural resources and thus responsible for raping the earth, too.

No reason why the enviros shouldn't pile on too, is there?
