    in the various British colonies along the east coast of North America 170 years before the United States of America existed as a sovereign nation... not to mention slavery not only continued through the Civil War; it continued after the war was over... Google 'Juneteenth'...

    The US gets no pass; it does not deserve one.

    Fear doesn't just breed incomprehension. It also breeds a spiteful, resentful hate of anyone and everyone who is in any way different from you.
