Great essay on the myths of slavery. I’m bookmarking this for my friends who insist on inviting me to dinner for Thanksgiving. The only thing I disagree with is the original sin being slavery. The original sin was how Christopher Columbus and “pilgrims' stole a continent from the Indians, stole, killed, raped, and enslaved them, and even forced them to fight in their wars in their uniforms. The killing and civilizing of American Indians is the country’s original sin.
