Not sure why all this talk of slavery is coming up? If people wanted to complain, they should of complained in 1619-1865, not now, It was a horrible atrocity, It was the norm at the time, EVEN African and Mid East Countries did it. It was wrong, President Lincoln wanted to repatriate the Blacks to Africa, partly because he thought the descendants of slaves would be resentful for generations, President Lincoln also thought they were not the Moral or Intellectual Equals of Whites, but he was wrong on all 3 thoughts and Blacks in the USA Are the most prosperous Blacks in the World, And 99.9999999 percent of Blacks and Whites get along great, In Fact Most Africans who leave Africa would choose the USA First among the Countries they would like to go to, and even the ones who claim to hate the USA do not Leave, because they know the USA is fairest, kindest, nicest and safest Country in the World. When I listen to my favorite song America The Beautiful By Ray Charles you can feel the Patriotism and love of the USA almost everyone has.
not sure if irony or sarcasm
