It's his statement that "this country was built on a legacy of slavery &


the murder of black people." That's a hideous statement, & I honestly don't think he'd say that again if he reflected on it. This nation was built first on a desire for religious freedom...note the thanks given to God by the Pilgrims & the cross put on the beach at Virginia Beach at First Landing by the original colonists who eventually made their way to Jamestown & established the first English settlement. The belief in God's providence & God's blessing to these voyagers existed before slavery (unfortunately) became entrenched in
this society. The Constitution later written by our founders became the vehicle to wipe out & outlaw slavery altogether. Let's not forget these truths, as it becomes so fashionable to trash our nation.
