And so on. No fear of running out of topics: there is more than one a day! I am sure my commenters can come up with tons more, probably some big ones that are not coming to mind at the moment (I did not list slavery, the abolitionist movement, the civil war, Reconstruction or Lincoln since they are, in fact, covered in history class, however poorly).
this post is perpetuating racism; please by all means implicate an entire race of people for things that happened in previous generations. you could do this for every race across nations as well and the list would be just as long. this is antagonistic shit stirring at its finest.
