LETTER: Others’ racism

America is racist and evil. Oh, really?

America did not slaughter 6 million European Jews. Germany did that.

America did not rape Nanjing. Japan did that.

America did not kill 40 million Russians and Ukrainians by starvation and murder. The Soviets did that.

America did not kill 60 million Chinese by starvation and murder. The Chinese Communist Party did that.

America did not kill over one million Cambodians in the “killing fields.” The Khmer Rouge did that.

America did not transport 10 million Africans as slaves to the Americas. Slave traders from Portugal, Spain, Holland, France and England did that.

America did not raid the coastal cities of Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, England and Iceland to take over 1 million white slaves to Africa. The Barbary Corsairs did that.

America did not use slaves to build the Colosseum. The Romans did that.

America did not use slaves to work the rock quarries to build the Acropolis and the Parthenon. The Greeks did that.

America is not perfect, but America is not evil, and the Greatest Generation gave America its greatest century, the 20th.

Will America be able to repeat that in the 21st Century?
