US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — The wave of violence that continues to engulf the United States for a week is, in a sense, settling the scores between this country and its own history.
In the very nature of the United States of America, created by white Europeans and eventually become the most developed and powerful country in the world, blood and tears.
The slave trade, which primarily affected the black population of Africa, served the United States of America the most. Imagine that by the end of the XVIII century on the African continent there were no men aged 12 to 40 years. At first, European slavers brought them to Cuba. Those who have been to Cuba know that the luxurious mansions on the island belonged to slave traders … Ultimately, slaves were sold to the regimes of white masters in the Americas.
Another shameful page in the history of the United States of America was that white Europeans who arrived on the continent subjected the American indigenous population to genocide. The “Redskins”, of which there is now a purely symbolic number, were exterminated, imprisoned, and turned into slaves.
One of the main subjects of the American Civil War in the 1860s was the situation of black slaves who were forced to work on cotton plantations in the South. Meanwhile, all the founders of America were slaveholders. Until the second half of the 20th century, black Americans continued to be second-class citizens. In 1960, when John F. Kennedy was elected president, black southern residents were not eligible to vote.
Memory of history
We hope that the acts of violence unfolding now in American cities will not lead to even more victims. We also wish that these events do not affect the successful course of the presidential elections to be held in November this year. But let’s not forget that history also has a memory and the time comes when history calls for an answer.
