My bad. Pre-1865 Black Americans had tremendous trust in the US government. Things were great back then. Lmao.
No, things were definitely hard. Hard for everyone. Europeans trusted their government's so little that they sailed across the ocean in wooden ships, starving to death, and sick with disease, to a land where nothing existed except wilderness, then fought a war to divorce themselves from the government, wrote a document that specified our rights were inherant, not government given, and then listed all the things the new government could never stop us from doing. Clearly Black people did not lay claim to government mistrust. There has always been plenty to go around.
