The employers were white, not black.Employers with most employees had privilege, just like today. Doesn't matter if slaves did any building because they don't get the credit. The employers who created the country, got the credit.<quoted text>You are full of shyte. If there were only whites at the time, how come the constitution specifically gave slave owners extra votes(# of votes based on the number of slaves owned). By the time our country was founded a good deal of the building was being done by slaves. There were also many free blacks who fought against the British. Your attempt to rewrite history is typical right wing bullshyte. Who do you think sailed the ships of our fledgling American navy?
They also sailed on the whaling ships that brought so much great wealth in the north-east. I don't think you would recognize the truth if it punched you in the face.
You don't think Colonel Sanders gave credit for the best fried chicken to his employees, do you?
No, his name was on the box, not the employees.
Slaves were doing a job, not creating on their own.
And let's not forget the Irish slaves. Blacks own no monopoly of slavery
You just have this false sense of grandeur. Can't say I blame you. Some have to increase the molehill, just to create the illusion of a mountain.
