And I was never making any race related point about slavery.
Just that America being founded on it along with several other atrocities was not a very good begining.

Well it does seem that by excluding white males from your list they were the only ones enslaved/killed that you didn't seem to have a problem with.
Also, I'm pretty sure you can go to any country and learn about atrocities in it's history.
To be clear, you are trying to escape countries that have no wrongdoings in their past?
America overcame those things man I think you really wanna go so you can jam with these dudes and this outlook is so you can have something to write about.
