Acknowledging Historical screwing is one thing, being proud of them is something else entirely. But that's why I said it depends on where your heritage lies. Some people should be ashamed of what their ancestors did, sure, to some degree. I have mixed blood, on one side of my Family were slave owners, and on the other were slaves. I'm definitely NOT proud of the slave owners' deeds. I'd feel less strong about it as it pertains to America, though, if our History wasn't so grossly poisoned to this day with racism and bullshit. Who is perpetuating that nonsense? I'll tell you who, same type of people who were calling Larry Holmes and threatening to kill him if he beat up Cooney.
