    Do the majority of black people really think they built America?

    Do most black people really believe that they built America and that white people are living off of their labor?  One BLM writer claims, "Nothing you have is yours."  Meaning that white people have stolen everything from black people.  I highly doubt that, but what are your thoughts?

    Well, I too doubt that most blacks believe this, but those few that do will use this idea as a launch pad for acts of hatred. BLM is an organization founded upon hatred, and those in that organization that genuinely believe this absolutely WILL act on it.

    Until the 1960s, blacks were less than 15% of the population. Slavery is marked by low productivity, too, which is why paid labor dominated slavery over time.
    No, blacks didn't build most of the nation or even a majority of what existed in the South.
    Nor can you demonize all whites for slavery, since about 2% of whites in the South owned slaves - and 600,000 mostly white men died to end slavery during the Civil War. Never before in human history did people fight a war to end slavery that wasn't for their own tribe - and only white Christian men ended slavery worldwide until ISIS brought it back.
