Like many other government systems around the world, America was not founded on equal opportunity for all. And, it was built at the expense of others freedom (of many different colors and many different ethnicities).
However; like countless others (of all colors and many different ethnicities) since the beginning of time and all around the world, many Americans now and through-out our history have fought, and are currently fighting for the personal freedoms of others. Not just in the military, outside of our country; but in everyday life, by having the courage to go against government and societal norms and stand up for what they know is right for humanity as a whole.
Equal opportunity and economic freedom for all is what true freedom looks like.
Sometimes, for something new and beautiful to be created we have to destroy what existed. That is the way life was designed.
