You're right. I skimmed the article. Reading it more carefully now, it 
takes a 3rd position, namely that Project 1619 was right in seeing white 
supremacy as rooted in American history but wrong in condemning it. This 
is how he puts it:

Our nation is great due to its founding stock and those Europeans who 
assimilated to it, not to words on a piece of paper. “All men are 
created equal” is not the core of our country–it’s the historic American 
nation. The Founding Fathers were ethno-nationalists and racial 
egalitarianism repulsed them.
