Ok guys, so I am talking about a controversial topic here: the US is evil. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions here, but the US government are hypocritical weirdos who are constantly in denial.
First of all: the Boston Massacre. Who hasn't learned about how the British soldiers killed five American colonists? Something that you don't learn in history class is that those colonists were harassing the soldiers, attacking them, and throwing objects at them. The soldiers fired in self defense. The taxes weren't actually so bad. You never learn about how all the great "heroes" of the revolutionary war owned slaves.
Next: most Americans believe that the US is the greatest country out there. For example, you learn that the US was the first country to grant equal rights to all its people. WRONG!!! New Zealand was the first country to grant rights to women, and Haiti was the first to abolish slavery.
The Civil War wasn't fought just about slavery, as people like to make you believe, it was actually also fought over tariffs(taxes on imports). The South relied heavily on imports, while the North didn't. The mostly Northern government mandated high tariffs, so the North would be rich and the south poor. Fort Sumter, the location of the first battle of the war, was a tariff collection point. However, everyone is hush hush about the tariffs. President Lincoln actually threatened to invade the South if they kept on complaining about tariffs.
President Lincoln himself was actually racist, I will put his speech in the comments.
Racism exists in every corner of the country. Look at Breonna Taylor and George Floyd. This country really needs to change and admit its past mistakes.
The North in the Civil War actually were just a bunch of hypocritical nobodies, as the South wanted independence for
equal rights and less taxes. The South did do slavery, and they were bad too, but our history books teach us the South were the "bad guys" and the North were the "good guys".
I am not insulting the US, I am just doing a conspiracy theory or whatever. Freedom of speech, right?
