finally, some truth in the "land of truth and justice"
it's about time something more honest was made about the 400+ years crimes against humanity that define "America"
myth: America the land of the free, the home of the brave, a mecca for immigrants where the American dream is an inalienable tradition.
truth: stealing a horse got you hung but killing a Chinaman was no crime.
question: can non-violence, peace, love redemption and forgiveness transform this violent lawless, wild west into a more peaceful, moral and enlightened America?
answer: no. America is as racist and hateful of non-whites since its inception when "founded" America (a place inhabited by millions of Native Indians) who they annihilated and forced enslaved blacks to work under horrific conditions.
1854: the state of California declared the Chinese as non people.
1857: the united state government passed the dred scott decision, denying equal justice and citizenship to people of color, allowing them to be bought and sold as merchandise.
1882: the united states government passed the Chinese exclusion act prohibiting the Chinese from citizenship and entering the united states until 1943.
ps lol! at all those 1/10 votes - i'm sure they're voted by white "gentlemen"
