Re: Jared Taylor's article Wait, Slavery Is OUR "Original Sin"?

From: Average White Man [Email him]

Regarding Jared Taylor’s article on slavery as America’s so-called "original sin", I agree.  If anyone thinks we need an original sin, I would like to propose the five most destructive words in American history: “All men are created equal.”  Whatever people think Jefferson and the Continental Congress meant by that clause, is it not the ultimate cause of the idea that inequality of result is unacceptable and that our existing society must be destroyed because we will never achieve that?  It was a Republican talking point in 1860, because Jefferson Davis felt the need to address it in his farewell speech to the U.S. Senate.  It is used by the lowlifes behind the 1619 Project today.  Perhaps “America’s birth defect“ is a more appropriate description.
