American Accountability Never Served with Equity - Equality is Never Maintained in the American Epic Tale

From a global perspective, being caucasian is always observed in the minority. Being an American with European heritage, this observer nevertheless was educated to the proposition that freedom was Divinely inspired and if one rejects that Divine inspiration, do not be surprised at how little it is observed by those that cannot see how America was set apart from the rest originally. Does this mean America was/is perfect? Hardly; but why is that? Why do those born to the freedoms incurred by American citizenship have to prove it is a better way fo life if properly engaged in seeing that all are served equitably? Were they all white men/women that fought constantly to keep America free? When law and order was ordained: were white men/women the only ones that felt protected when criminals (of all ethnicities) rebelled and violated the law?
In the American Civil War, it was not orignally about freedom of race, but dissent between white privilegeand the religious disputes of how to govern the republic. Slavery only entered the equation when slave owners believed erroneoulsy they were entitled to own other humans to do with as they please. Were the champions of emancipation not white men/women?
After being established as a predominately caucasian population of European expatriates, America began to experianced a multinational influx of other cultures; but mostly many of the earlier imigrants were other caucasians, for the primary reason of following the scent of freedom that was otten not allowed in white cultures from Europe.
America is about embracing the freedpm of the spirit. Properly entertained, it is the best environment if the rebellion is quarantined and law and order maintained. If not, where does ne escapte to now, if America is not allowed the freedom that was so bitterly fought for?
Living in 12, or dozens of other places in America, does not necessarily give one the 'feel' of living in the land of the free if one does/did not appreciate the sacrifice that hundreds of thousands of white men/women made in order to allow living in 12 or more places in the land of freedom that is America. Rebellion to that is the crime we are seeing today.
