Oh wow, this is so backwards I don't even know where to begin.
A) "Black" people did NOT build America in the way you are thinking. Building things requires knowledge of mathematics and engineering, and that was
STRICTLY not allowed. "Black" people were responsible for doing everything that was unskilled. All the garbage work that no one wants to do. No glory
or anything, They were/are a cornerstone of American economics, that I can give you.
The people that built America were not slaves... technically. Yellow people built the railroads, poor white's (foreigners in particular) ran the
factories until Emancipation. The "middle class" would be responsible for the actual building of America that you speak of. Though this middle class
used all the classes beneath them in Roman Dominus attitude, so I wouldn't go calling them super-heroes or anything.
B) Equating veterans of war with slaves/ economic serfs is... crazy. Veterans made a free choice to do what they did. The slaves and serfs were forced
into place by European class-stratification. Rather than making a 'day" or "month" of remembrance for either, how about we treat them with the respect
they EARNED. Both classes of people. I will never understand it. "Let's give ______ a day/month of remembrance/awareness instead of being aware of
them every day." It's why I don't celebrate mother's/father's day. It gives the excuse to not care, when culture dictates you only have to kiss their
a$$ once a year now. And idk if any of you are in the food service industry, but the family unit has taken such a hit in the past 5-10 years... these
ideas further undermine the foundation of family/community
I am pretty sure the underbelly of society would prefer REAL help 365 days a week instead of a day or month where people with no worries (relative to
underbelly) can sit and remember how others work hard and help out a bit (or more than a bit.) American culture is aimed at making the masses NOT MEAN
ANYTHING. The underbelly would realize that the path to their better world will NOT come from those with the economic clout to change it at a whim. It
would come from the class that's been forced into using them like slaves. They don't want you being aware of all this stuff ALL THE TIME. Real changes
would happen, instead of the change controlled by the economic elite.
