Jefferson exemplified the deeply ingrained racism of America.� In scale, intensity, and duration, the USA is history’s most racist nation.� Jefferson, being a child of the Enlightenment, thus derived scientific rationales for his racism.� In his Notes on the State of Virginia, Jefferson tried his hand at anthropology and wrote at length about African slaves.� Jefferson thought they were equal to whites in feats of memory, but inferior in reasoning ability, and he put them well below Native Americans in ability to make art and speak. [159] � That is not to indict Jefferson, but to demonstrate how thoroughly racist early America was, that the embodiment of the Enlightenment in America could speculate on the natural inferiority of Africans.� If people such as him are hoisted into America’s Pantheon, people Americans are supposed to look up to, it is only ethical to examine the saint’s life.� Jefferson later reasoned that the treatment of slaves might have contributed to their condition, which his abolitionist friend Benjamin Rush was fully convinced of.

TV sets must be converted to European standards. Cuba and the Philippines had independence revolts, and the Spanish brutally put them down.� That became the USA's excuse for invading: freeing the subjected peoples.� Cort�s mouthed some of the same rhetoric as he laid siege to Tenochtitl�n .� As the U SA took the global stage with its invasion of the Philippines, the UK’s imperial bard, Rudyard Kipling, penned a poem titled “ The White Man’s Burden .”� Kipling was articulating British racism and framing the imperial venture as bringing “civilization” to the world’s dark-skinned peoples, and his poem was specifically an exhortation to the Philippines to submit to America’s benevolent rule.� Kipling was welcoming the USA to the intercontinental smorgasbord.� U.

A widow achieved these rights, but it was not easy to outlive a husband.

In the celebrations following the treaty, Henry was killed by a stray splinter from a lance. When America was good and ready, the bombs began dropping onto Afghanistan.� It was a terrorist bombing that far exceeded the WTC attacks.� Few knowledgeable observers thought the Taliban and friends would successfully fight off the USA, as the world’s biggest killing machine was aimed at the world’s most devastated people.� The goal for a long time has been risking as few American troops as possible, and the terror bombing of Afghanistan was a keyboard war, as missiles were launched from vast distances.� As the American military safely sat behind their keyboards, launching missiles at Afghanistan, the Afghani people were subject to unending aerial bombardment.� As with bombing the Chinese embassy in Yugoslavia and the French embassy in Libya, it appears that the two bombings of Red Cross warehouses in Kabul were intentional.�� About three thou sand people were killed in the WTC and Pentagon attacks.� In December 2001, professor Marc Herold of the University of New Hampshire released a summary of reporting on the USA's bombing of Afghanistan. [400] � Using only stories that made the media, Herold tallied 3,767 civilian deaths directly attributable to American bombardment.� It was the most conservative number attainable, and exceeded the toll of the WTC and Pentagon attacks.� Afghani civilians, who were as innocent as those who died in the WTC attacks, died at the USA's hands.�� Similar to how Iraq’s civilian casualties were a non-story in America, there was virtually no American media coverage of Herold’s tally, in another proof of the worthy/unworthy victim thesis of Herman and Chomsky.� Many thousands of Afghanis also did not survive the winter, and Afghanistan is still occupied by the USA in 2014, and the death toll by 2014 due to the USA's actions is several million people.
