I would be curious to understand why you


think Lar's statement is false or unbalanced?

The country had a chance to make black people free in the 1700s with the DOI but the verbiage was removed. the civil war should have truly ended slavery and treating black people as less than equals but it didn't. When black people went to war in WW1 and WW2 they didn't receive the same benefits as other people did when they returned from the war.

So for the majority of this country's history - black people have fought for either its independence, or preserving the founding father's vision internally and externally and came out with nothing. I don't think black people could even own property before the 1970s (or was it the 60s). Segregation was still around till the 70s if I am not mistaken.
