Our country will forever drive me crazy. I am currently on my way to getting my major in History and our country was built on racism. It drives me crazy that the founders of our nation left the old world to escape racism and oppresion and religious freedom. Then once here we split up th original colonies, all into different religious sects. We treated the Native Americans horribly and then after that the slave trade began. Then immigration into the new world began with the Irish, Germans, and Japanese and even more racism and religious hatred emerged. This country was built on the backs of slaves, we were a slave nation and treated everyone that was here before us horribly, beating and murdering them, and people that came after to search for what we ultimately wanted, "Freedom". I am ashamed with how our nation was created and how the nation still is today!
