The whole idea of America and slavery is twisted.
our country was founded by the belief that all men are created equal. It was ENGLAND that brought slavery to North America and perpetuated it until our declaration of independence and the application of the treaty of Paris in 1783 (effective 1784).
up until that point; the witch trials, slavery, etc can be laid at the feet of England. By 1863 (less than 80 years) America abolished slavery. There is no country in earth save for the United States, that does not have hundreds of years even thousands of years of slavery.
american is special. The original declaration had this line deleted from it;
“He has waged cruel war against human nature itself, violating its most sacred rights of life and liberty in the persons of a distant people who never offended him, captivating & carrying them into slavery in another hemisphere or to incur miserable death in their transportation thither. This piratical warfare, the opprobrium of infidel powers, is the warfare of the Christian King of Great Britain. Determined to keep open a market where Men should be bought & sold, he has prostituted his negative for suppressing every legislative attempt to prohibit or restrain this execrable commerce. And that this assemblage of horrors might want no fact of distinguished die, he is now exciting those very people to rise in arms among us, and to purchase that liberty of which he has deprived them, by murdering the people on whom he has obtruded them: thus paying off former crimes committed again the Liberties of one people, with crimes which he urges them to commit against the lives of another.”
these are the words of Thomas Jefferson.
by 1863, with the emancipation proclamation, and the 110,000 union soldiers gave their lives to free others. Name a country that has given that. The road to true equality has been tough. After the civil war the kkk was created and they killed many blacks AND MANY MANY WHITES, by their racism. President grant defeated them. President Wilson allowed their return
No country (or color of skin) on earth as the right to criticize the United States let alone another for past indiscretions in slavery. All colors, races, nationalities held slaves at one point in time of all colors and nationalities.
