Please don’t forget that much of America’s shameful historic legacy was created by racist, classist, oligarchical, imperialist colonial powers. Britain played the principle role, but France and Spain were right there in the beginning also. It has fallen to us that are here now to try to begin to rectify this ugly legacy that has been perpetuated by the like minded racist, classist, imperialist oligarchs of today. I still maintain that the concepts and ideals outlined in America’s founding documents, despite being written by racist, classist, oligarchs are, for the most part, sound. They have not yet been fully applied, and the most broad minded ideals (such as “created equal”) have never really been given a chance.
