Growing up in the 1950’s as a white kid we had no idea just how good we had it here in the USA. Not only that but my father was a German immigrant whose family ran a successful business selling stuff for US military suppliers! President Washington understood perfectly well that he was only building a democracy for tax paying white guys in America. Had he attempted to build a democracy for everyone there would not have been a United States of America!
President Lincoln understood perfectly well that he was building a democracy that would not allow for slavery anymore. Had he attempted to build a country where white and black were equal there would not have been a United States of America! Women only got the right to vote a hundred years ago so whatever came before then, was on somebodies else head. We only began to address Jim Crow in the 1960’s. My grandchildren are growing up in a country of a more equal God!
And that is all I’m going to say about that.
