Now he calls it a revolution?

But the article is great as Richard clearly identifies the causes of the
racism which leads to the violence.

And when anyone tries to use this as a reason to oppose the revolution can
one not just say, The American revolution was done by slaveholders to
establish a slaveholding state, explicitly in its constitution. And despite
this we can, with criticism, argue removal of a foreign colonial oppressive
monarchy as a good thing.
