Our Founding Fathers were by todays standards, white supremacists and hard core racists. In fact the seeds of the racism we experience today were planted in the Constitution itself; The Three-Fifths Clause of the United States Constitution (1787)
Let's not forget that the majority of these white men believed that not all people were created equal and in fact were slave owners themselves; How many of the signers of the Declaration of Independence owned slaves?
Our first President; and a few others after him, were slave owners So how many presidents owned slaves?
Removing statues from parks and censuring certain vocabulary will not change facts or our history. In fact the hypocrisy inherent in these actions is blatant given that we continue to immortalize a number of these historical figures on our currency; Presidents Whom Owned Slaves: 4 Are on Currency
It comes as no surprise that the Establishment and Main Stream Media have come out in force to portray Trump as the one and only instigator of racism, bigotry and violence in the streets of America today.
It is also not surprising that Trump is not playing his part as expected by those on both sides who continue to wish him harm.
President Donald Trump blamed the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, Saturday on both sides of the conflict, equating the white supremacists on one side with the "alt-left" on the other side.
"I think there is blame on both sides," he said.
“What about the alt-left that came charging at, as you say, the alt-right, do they have any semblance of guilt?" Trump said. "What about the fact they came charging with clubs in hands, swinging clubs, do they have any problem, I think they do."
He added: "You had a group on one side that was bad and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent. nobody wants to say it, but I will say it right now.”
