The United States of America was never truly "founded" as much as it was declared independent from the Kingdom of Great Britain on July 4, 1776. About 600000 slaves were imported into the U.S., or 5% of the 12 ... to have a new start, passed a law to prohibit slavery, which was then ... or limited the African slave trade by 1786; Georgia did so in 1798 was finally legally abolished was: July 1, 1928. So it seems we have been free ever since we were "granted priviledge to start anew" by setting up camp here in america which is the systematic culture of blacks being at the bottom. Almost like now. Kinda confusing. Ok we can say well if your mind is free "great". But if your mind is overwhelmed with another culture teaching you about yours in their way. Well u may b legally free but what does that mean here in amerikkka? Confused State of Mind!
