Built By Slaves

First lady Michelle Obama told graduates at New York’s City College Friday that the diversity of their institution affirms the viability of the American Dream…that, “when I wake up in a house that was built by slaves…”

Sigh!

When are we going to get by this.  Or acquire some perspective.  The White House was built by slaves, New York City was built by slaves,I the nation was built by slaves.  First of all they were a minority and not an especially effective work force either – they didn’t build everything.  Whatever happened to the post-racial presidency?

I quote from an earlier post:

Bryant’s summing up about the bottomless pit of grievances::

Our rulers don’t seem to understand just how tired their white subjects are with this experiment. They don’t understand that white people aren’t out to get black people; they are just exhausted with them. They are exhausted by the social pathologies, the violence, the endless complaints, the blind racial solidarity, the bottomless pit of grievances, the excuses, the reflexive animosity.[*]  The elites explain everything with “racism,” and refuse to believe that white frustration could soon reach the boiling point.

*To that one might add the claim that their ancestors built everything.
