Tell that to the slaves who initially *built* the U.S., and tell that to the present-day *descendants* of those enslaved peoples.
Being a descendant from the Mayflower Pilgrims who initially *built* the U.S. , you can tell the *descendants* of all slaves (indentured, purchased, self sold) of all races that got used in America by Slave Masters of all Colors that slavery ended a long long time ago and that My family and most Families in America that are still in America had nothing to do with slavery with the exception of being indentured and wanting it abolished.
Okay, you're *personally* off-the-hook regarding slavery in the U.S. (grin)
To be *specific*, this is what I'm referring to:
Development of slavery
The shift from indentured servants to African slaves was prompted by a dwindling class of former servants who had worked through the terms of their indentures and thus became competitors to their former masters. These newly freed servants were rarely able to support themselves comfortably, and the tobacco industry was increasingly dominated by large planters. This caused domestic unrest culminating in Bacon's Rebellion. Eventually, chattel slavery became the norm in regions dominated by plantations.
The Fundamental Constitutions of Carolina established a model in which a rigid social hierarchy placed slaves under the absolute authority of their master. With the rise of a plantation economy in the Carolina Lowcountry based on rice cultivation, a slave society was created that later became the model for the King Cotton economy across the Deep South. The model created by South Carolina was driven by the emergence of a majority slave population that required repressive and often brutal force to control. Justification for such a slave society developed into a conceptual framework of white superiority and aristocratic privilege.
Several local slave rebellions took place during the 17th and 18th centuries: Gloucester County, Virginia Revolt (1663); New York Slave Revolt of 1712; Stono Rebellion (1739); and New York Slave Insurrection of 1741.

Slaves are people that were told what to do. They did not Build America. By saying that they did sounds very much like an actual communist. Josef? Communism would make slaves out of any common taxpaying legal American citizen overnight if it is not checked daily.
'Red Dawn', huh? Good flick. Fun.
Communism proves that any socialist programs *won't be enough*, because none of those things address the *class divide* in the minds of the idiots that allow themselves to be ruled by communists. Patriots are willing to do what it takes to take care of themselves and their families and their communities without a ruling class and without a group of elitists that drive a 200 thousand dollar Audi by pushing socialism while taking money from the poor that do not even own a car. In America you get a job or two or three and work as much as you can and get rewarded for all of your hard work with more money or you use fentanyl and opioids and set around complaining about ancestors from your distant past that screwed you over by not leaving you a legacy. Democrats have become the new Communist Party and they must be eliminated from all of America's political Arenas. Kamala Harris is weak at her best. God Bless America.
Okay, Mr. Chad Social Historian.
So those who are ruled by the elitists, driving $200,000 Audis, are 'idiots', huh?
And, sure, if one works *a lot*, sacrificing their own life-time, they'll make some money -- *or*, since everyone who works is *ripped off* on every hour of every day that they work, why not just make the elitist *government* atone for past transgressions, like slavery and wage-slavery, and pay reparations to all laborers? Trump has proved that they have *trillions* to blow on propping up the stock market, so what the hey -- !
