Ancestry is Destiny

Some of my ancestors were Slavs, the original slaves:

slave (n.) Look up slave at Dictionary.com late 13c., “person who is the property of another,” from O.Fr. esclave (13c.), from M.L. Sclavus “slave” (cf. It. schiavo, Fr. esclave, Sp. esclavo), originally “Slav” (see Slav), so called because of the many Slavs sold into slavery by conquering peoples.

My other ancestors were Jews, the original victims.  So please don’t play ancestral victim with me. Not because I’ll win, but because it is an extremely stupid game.

Haiku:
Ancestral victims?
Your ancestral oppressors
Are just as dead now.

Alternate Haiku:
Ancestral victims
Yet we all are descended
from the survivors
