So it is all ( slavery and racism) really our fault according to this 2nd rate American professor of history

Its Britain this and Britain that. As if the colonists didnt have their own minds many who left for the new world wanting to walk away from Britain. Slavery "only" became an Amercian matter when they got their independance and in particular after 1783 when the Treaty of Paris was agreed :roll:

The British role in America's tainted past
