why does america have such a vile history of anti-black racism if its founded as a christian country?

the bible clearly teaches its followers that no human being should be judged by their skin colour and that the IQ of a white is exactly the same as that of a black.

despite this fact however the united states has a long and vile history of anti-black racism.

why is it like this though? isn't it better to not be racist instead?

to any racist Americans reading this what made you become racist and have you ever thought about giving up on your deviant views?

    Most races are racist, at least historically speaking. 

    I have met plenty of black racists.

    I do not know what history you study, or who inept and incompetent instructors are,  however, there has been strong and massive opposition to slavery in the republic by the colonies since 1746.  Quaker congressmen constantly brought up the question every session of congress since 1789, and the first presdent of an anti slavery group was Benjamin Franklin, did your teacher know who he was?

    Would Americans treat black people the same as they treat them now if the black population would be educated, civilize, and commit fewer crimes?

    Sorry,  it is because it was founded by Christians.

    The Bible teaches how to treat slaves, how far you can beat them.  Never does it say that slavery is bad.

    Christians used the Bible to justify slavery:

    Take some relativity.  America only took about 12% of the slaves that were sold to Spaniards by African tribes.  Slavery is still allowed today, in Asia, the Middle East and Africa.  Hundreds of thousands of white Europeans were taken as slaves.

    The Bible does seem to endorse slavery, though!  Even Jesus seemed to be okay with it.

    It goes back to the Civil War.  After the South lost the Civil War, Southern politicians convinced Southerners that abolishing slavery was unfair and wrong, that it was done just to punish the South.  Lincoln wanted to welcome the South back with open arms, but after he was killed we were left with angry Republicans who really did just want to punish the south.

    It took another 100 years (1860s to 1960s) to actually pass laws to allow blacks to vote, to ban systematic segregation and discrimination.  And then it was the Republicans themselves who took over the South by promising to push back, to keep minorities in their god*amn place.  And that's the battle we've been having ever since.  Blacks are still the victims of discrimination and segregation, even in wide regions of the US East and Midwest.  And of our two political parties, roughly equal in size and power, one of them is completely devoted to keeping minorities in a second-class citizenship.

    It doesn't, you're gas lit, and want to be gas lit to explain why your people are a blithering failure. .....You want some truth on American slavery? Check out professor Tony Martin on YouTube. J writings are the earliest justification for slavery.
