    Q&A: Did slaves build the White House? - White House Historical Association

    The D.C. commissioners, charged by Congress with building the new city under the direction of the president, initially planned to import workers from Europe to meet their labor needs. However, response to recruitment was dismal and soon they turned to African Americans—both enslaved and free—to provide the bulk of labor that built the White House, the United States Capitol, and other early government buildings.
    Not only built by slaves, but home to the biggest white privileged racist on the planet!

    This whole debate needs to be a bit more balanced. Just turn it into a museum of slavery.

    I wonder if those tearing down the Colston statue and filming it on their iphones were aware of their hypocrisy?
