The percentage of white people owning slaves is far higher, and then there is w the whole thing with whites running the government and society.
Those are things were involved in the building of the USA yes of course.
I'm not saying they're fine, they're obviously bad things which is why they were stopped, except for racism since there's no law that can make 100% of racism go away unfortunately.
I think these are complex issues, that have to be looked at through a historical lens. I think colonialism in general was an unstoppable process, though different cruel behaviours that happened during colonialism weren't necessary, like breaking treaties and slavery.
Then you should support ending the colonial relationship between Washington and the indigenous people of the USA, including respecting the treaties and court orders dealing with giving the land back.
And if that is the case, please note that according to treaty and court orders, the Six Grandfathers (what you call Mt. Rushmore) is Lakota land.
