To quote Malcolm X,

The American Negro never can be blamed for his racial animosities -- he is only reacting to four hundred years of the conscious racism of the American whites.

I'm not American and really have no frame of reference for American race relations past some stuff in movies or on TV, but I'd argue that everyone ought to be equal and treat each other with respect.

Where are you from? In my home country, also not America, we continue to praise people who enslaved Africans and have statues of King motherfucking Leopold standing high above our capitals. It's far from just an American thing. Nevermind all the racism that I saw all across Europe after the World Cup.

If you must, simply substitute slavery with colonialism in any context.
