They are complaining now because on picture with Trump administration everyone was white and they are saying how people of color built usa... WRONG whites from europe (Ireland,Germany,England,Spain,Italy,Russia,Yugoslavia,Poland etc...) built that country and people of color are now ruining it (see detroit and chicago) and they are living on the welfare that white people pay... Call me a racist but this is a fact and its true!
Lol no... Union didnt use slaves and in Confederation only 1% of the wealthy used blacks to pick cotton and plants... Maybe economically and agriculturally strong for plantation owners but not for US... Also Detroit in 50's was white city and it was the center of car industry city was prospering going forward until blacks started migrating and whites started leaving due them... Now Detroit is worst city with most crimes in USA and its 83% black... And when you look pictures of Detroit (cities and neighbourhoods) its terrifying to look at... Also Chicago (33% blacks) is becoming same like Detroit... South Chicago (90% blacks) is like you are in Sierra Leone not Usa its place where drug dealers and criminals prosper... But if you bring these facts everyone calls you racist...
I mean just to hit one point, most black people that moved to Detroit we're uneducated and/or freed slaves from the South. They had no skills, and wanted to leave the South after the end of the Reconstruction Era in order to search for jobs that were promised in the more socially liberal North.
When they got there, they often found that jobs often weren't available and they also had very little class mobility (eg getting raise to manager) because of their lack of skills. And obviously everyone knows increase in poverty leads to increase in crime, regardless of skin color.
All of you're statistics (Im assuming) are true, but it's not just because they're skin is black or something
People like you are the reason why Trump won at first place... Instead you try to prove people wrong put up your facts etc but first thing you do you call them ignorant, racist, sexist etc... People are tired of that shit...
First off, the reason why Trump won, is because people VOTED for him. Not off of personal opinions on the internet. Don't get so defensive if you don't even know what "ignorant" means. Clearly if you are asking someone a question, you don't know 100% of the info to, you are ignorant to the WHOLE situation. Holy snowflake...
I think what he is trying to say is that so many people voted for Trump because they were tired of liberals and their political correctness, Trump to them looked like a guy who would identify problems without being politically correct.
You have a point but what is stopping half of African Americans today to work... Today non whites are equal and in liberal places they have more privilege than whites, its not that hard to get a job due all the political correctness but it seems like democrats want blacks to not be independent and free thinkers its like they want to keep them on welfare and without opportunity and also make them blame whites for everything...
Have you heard of the term, Old and New money? That's where the "privilege" aspect comes from. Of course, in 2017, everyone has the same opportunity to make something of themselves (with the proper resources/which brings up the issue with the context on how the inner city was established) but the problem is there are still limitations. Not everywhere, but borders and boundaries still exist in this country. The media/trolls on the internet like to stir up the Race war. Though racism still exists and is strong, people like to see Side v. Side rather than resolving conflict. It's an paradox, my friend. Color has NOTHING to do with it. It's a ethnocentric and societal problem.
I'll be honest, I don't know. There are some situations which I am sure can explain it a little.
Take this: You have a white, middle-class student. His only responsibility to go to class and get good grades, and his parents take care of the rest. Obviously he is set for success.
Then take a lower class black kid. He has to work a part-time job to support his family while in school, and obviously does not have the support/resources of his white classmate. I don't think I have to explain how the white kid is more likely to succeed.
Clearly, I am making pretty big generalization and this is only 1 specific situation, but I'm hoping you understand a little more how poverty can be a bad cycle.
Firstly we aren't talking about crimes in black dominant cities so thats irrelevant. We are talking about what impact slaves had on the economy and agriculture of USA.
The South had to rely on agriculture since their climate and geographical location made it impossible to grow industrially. They needed slaves to have efficient plantations. Without slaves the south would not have enough labor to have these huge plantations and would have gotten demolished economically.
Slavery made the South an economically strong area of the US, colored people had an effect in building America.
How did they have influence in Union tho? Its not like there were any blacks there... Pennsylvania, New York, New England was all built by Europeans... Also its not like there weren't white farmers in South... Also what are colored people contributing to USA and EU today??? Sure maybe 10% what about rest??? You cant deny that rest are just living on welfare and blaming white people for everything... At least during 20th century colored immigrants were hard working people and they respected the country that gaved them opportunity to put food on the table now i guess everyone can shit on white people and USA/EU how everything is racist sexist and xenophobic...
There were Blacks in the Union part of the USA, most were escaped slaves. Your original question was what impact they had on the US, the didn't have much impact in the North(apart from riling people up with their stories about slavery and convincing them that it was evil which ultimately lead to the Civil War), but they did have impact in the South which was made through slave labor.
That 1% carried the South's and basically the country's economy harder than KennyS in Titan. The South's cotton plantations produced over half of the world's cotton before the Civil War and half of the US's entire export income. Imagine cutting out (hypothetically) one fourth of the entire country's income.
