Am I Not a Man & a Brother?

I'm watching a show about the Underground Railroad.

The peculiarly American (as in U.S.) viewpoint kicks in early.

Someone states, "Slavery has been around for 300 years."

Slavery predates history. Slavery has probably existed in every land on earth except Antarctica. Why does it seem to be impossible for Americans to consider the American experience in a broader context?

This is a symptom.
