I disagree. It has little or nothing to do with the outcome. We've had some negative stuff in our history. We've gotten to where we are today in spite of those things, not because of those things.Like many of the current events connected to this forum and our history, it seems to come down to how one views the history of United States today, whether it lead to a positive outcome or a negative one. And I most assuredly view the United States today as a positive outcome
Some may view our country as a negative outcome, and extend that negativity to our Constitution, laws, legal values and principles, I don't, so if they do I obviously agree to disagree as that would be a rather fundamentally different view of our nation without much common ground.
Sometimes the law is wrong, and unjust. Dred Scott, for example. Or in your state, an all-white male jury condemned a teen-age female slave to be hung, for killing her owner after he had been sexually assaulting her for years. Those types of things did not lead us to where we are today. We had to get to this outcome in spite of those things.
