“This is not a racist country.”
He obviously lives in a totally different America than I do. He cannot possibly be talking about the America that I know and love.
While everyone in America is not racist. Without racism there would be no America as we know it. The very industry that sparked the industrial revolution was the cotton industry, and industry fueled by the blood, sweat, and tears of the millions of African's who were forced into slavery to pick cotton long before Eli Whitney invented the cotton gin. America is a country that was birthed, nurtured, and grown from the seeds of hatred, predjudice, exploitation, savagery and terrorism. A study of the Native American holocaust can attest to that. This is a legacy that only those whose ancestors arrived here on the Nina, the Pinta, or the Santa Maria have the luxury of dismissing or ignoring.
If the overwhelming sentiment of a certain segment of America is not racist, then why has President Obama received more death threats than any other President in the history of the United States?
The facts are undeniable, and the truth is a welcome change from the usual lies and propaganda.
