Default Did black slaves "build the USA" ?

It was proposed in another thread that black slaves from Afrika "built the USA".
Yes, the person who proposed this is black.
I find this fairly ludicrous. Slaves were nearly completely uneducated, could not read or write, and were pretty much looked upon as farm animals. They had no technical skills, and did not do much besides farm work, house keeping and low skill menial tasks.
Here is the post
http://www.wrestlingforum.com/9553149-post89.html

I find this notion that blacks did all the work, while evil whitely just sat around cracking the whip, insulting to my forefathers.
From the ground up, European settlers turned an undeveloped, vast land into a thriving industrial nation, and an international power.
They were renowned for their work ethic, and technical innovations.
In the days before mechanized farming impliemnts, sure slaves were a factor, and contributed towards the prosperity of the nation.
But to say "they built the USA" is clearly ludicrous, and I challenge mrgagentleman or anyone else to back that harebrained and insulting notion up with facts.

Though this is in rants, it is not my intent to start a racial flamefest.
Please keep your comments civil & factual, thanks.

While I dislike the OP, the idea that black people built America is ridiculous at best.

The European settlers built America with the tools they had available. Black people were simply one of the tools they used.

I wonder why this needed its own thread when there was already a discussion going on about it? Didn't OP once create a thread repeating his own post from another thread because he thought it was so good?

Usual suspects out in force.
I will not reply to any juvenile provocations, sorry.
Did black slaves build the USA or did they not, its really not that difficult of a question ?

Have no idea what you are talking about.
If I did, sure that wouldn't be the first time in internet history that has happened.
This topic was created because a mod said that the other one has strayed off topic, and requested a new one started if anyone wanted to pursue the subject.

Can we stay on topic please? If you want to create a thread for discussion about African American History then do it somewhere else, this is not the place to do it.

A lot of people built the USA. African slaves, certainly, included.
