ICONOCLAS’TIC, adjective Breaking images.Webster’s Dictionary, first edition
There are people who want to tear down our history.
Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Statue
Abraham Lincoln’s emancipation statue was entirely paid by freed slaves. It was unveiled in 1876 for a dedication speech by Frederick Douglass. It depicts a freed slave, portrayed by Archer Alexander, kneeling before Lincoln, when Lincoln told him “Don’t kneel to me. That is not right. You must kneel to God only and thank him for the liberty you will hereafter enjoy.”
And now we are faced with an unreasoning mob who demands that we tear down this statue. They refuse to have a conversation.

Most slaves were white

Instead of explaining that all races shared in the horrors of slavery — which would bring us together, the fake news industry wants to agitate and divide.
These same people openly embrace Muslims where slavery flourishes as an important part of their culture. Yet not one peep from the fake news industry.
And they also ignore that the 1840 U.S. Census proves that 29% of free blacks owned slaves. Yet U.S. never had more than 1½% of whites owning slaves.
The very meaning of the word slave refers to white slaves.
