re: #281 Hecuba’s daughter

A couple days ago, my sister and I were discussing the historical flaws in our country and she reminded me of Andrew Cuomo’s widely criticized statement, pushing back against Trump, that America was never that great . White supremacy was born in the US — it’s contrary to our stated ideals but not the values that many hold in this nation. After all, Trump would never have been elected if 10’s of millions of Americans did not support these views. Think of all those who are offended by efforts to remove Confederate statues from public places.

White supremacy is no stranger to the US, but the British empire and colonialism existed before the US and was pretty much all about white supremacy.
