March 4, 1789 – The first U.S. Congress met for the first time, operating under the U.S. Constitution and cementing slavery, racism and injustice into existence. Most of the members of the 1789 congress were slave owners. The Constitution is racist, pro-slavery and reduced African-Americans to three-fifths of a (white) human being. The Congress is deeply implicated in establishing “a slaveholders’ republic” that protected slavery in complex ways down to 1861.
