Don’t You Know Slaves Built America?

Well, 97 % of National Register of Historic Places in America are for White Males….

Wait, I thought it was Black people who built America while white people sat around drinking. Have you heard Black people say, “It it wasn’t for us, there’d be no America?” Or, “Don’t you know that slaves built America?” (‘Black people built America’ returns 54.9 million hits on Google.)

The answer to those questions is a simple statement: “Black people didn’t build America, but they are lending a helping hand in its destruction.”

How about some real history (and no, ancient aliens didn’t help build America either): The Men Who Built America, courtesy of the History Channel:

John D. Rockefeller, Cornelius Vanderbilt, Andrew Carnegie, Henry Ford and J.P. Morgan rose from obscurity and in the process built modern America. Their names hang on street signs, are etched into buildings and are a part of the fabric of history. These men created the American Dream and were the engine of capitalism as they transformed everything they touched in building the oil, rail, steel, shipping, automobile and finance industries. Their paths crossed repeatedly as they elected presidents, set economic policies and influenced major events of the 50 most formative years this country has ever known. From the Civil War to the Great Depression and World War I, they led the way.

Using state of the art computer generated imagery that incorporates 12 million historical negatives, many made available for the first time by the Library of Congress, this series will bring back to life the world they knew and the one they created. The event series will show how these men took a failed experiment in democracy and created the greatest superpower the world has ever seen. We see how their historic achievements came to create the America of today.

 Considering that street signs in America are increasingly being replaced with some fellow named Martin Luther King, it’s hard to believe a series such as this is being funded today.

 What do you think?

Now, if we are willing to open the floor for debate on who killed Detroit and Birmingham… that would be primarily the descendants of slaves.
