In August of 2019, the New York Times published The 1619 Project. Its goal is to redefine the American experiment as rooted not in liberty but in slavery. In this video, Wilfred Reilly, Associate Professor of Political Science at Kentucky State University, responds to The 1619 Project’s major claims.

Have you heard of The 1619 Project? It was published by the New York Times in August of 2019. It won the Pulitzer Prize for Commentary in 2020.
Its thesis: The United States was founded in 1619, when the first slave was brought to North America.
Wait-that brings up some questions…
What happened to 1776? To July 4th? The Declaration of Independence? George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison?
According to The 1619 Project, the Founding Fathers pushed for all that “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” stuff to protect their slave holdings. Independence from England? That was just a smoke screen.
To them, everything that’s wrong with America is tied to her “original sin” of slavery: from segregation to traffic jams (yes-traffic jams!). For The 1619 Project authors, racism is not a part of the American experience; it is the American experience.
Is this true? Let’s look at three of the project’s major claims:
1. Preserving slavery was the real cause of the American Revolution.
If you asked the Founders why they no longer wanted to be a British colony, they would have given you a long list of reasons: Taxation without representation, conflicts over debts from the French and Indian War, and the Stamp Act would be just a few.
Probably most important was the burning desire to be free-to chart their own destiny as a sovereign nation. Protecting slavery? Slavery was not under threat from the British. In fact, Britain didn’t free the slaves in its overseas colonies until 1833-57 years later, after the Declaration of Independence.
Yes, the subject of slavery was hotly debated at the Constitutional Convention, but that was after the war was won.
2. Slavery made America rich.
Slavery made some Americans rich-true enough. Eli Yale, for example, made a fortune in the slave trade. He donated money and land for the university that is named after him. But the institution of slavery didn’t make America rich. In fact, the slave system badly slowed the economic development of half the country.
As economist Thomas Sowell points out, in 1860, just one year before the Civil War began, the South had only one-sixth as many factories as the North. Almost 90% of the country’s skilled, well-paid laborers and professionals were based in the North. Banking, railroads, manufacturing-all were concentrated in the North. The South was an economic backwater.
And the cost of abolishing slavery was enormous-not merely in terms of dollars (Lincoln borrowed billions to pay for it), but also in terms of human life: 360,000 Union soldiers died in order to free 4 million slaves. That works out to about one soldier in blue for every ten slaves freed. It’s hard to look at that butcher’s bill and conclude that the nation turned a profit from slavery.
And many things have happened since 1865. In the almost 200 years since the Civil War, the population of the country has grown almost 900% and our national GDP has increased 12,000%. Slavery did not make America rich.
3. Racism is an unchangeable part of America.
This argument is more philosophical than scholarly, but it undergirds the entire 1619 Project. It’s also pernicious because it suggests that the United States is an inherently racist country that can’t overcome its flaws. Yet that’s exactly what it’s done.
Today, America is the most successful multi-racial country in history, the only white majority country to elect a black President-twice. Of course, progress has not always been smooth. There have been terrible setbacks. But to compare American attitudes about race today to America a hundred years ago, let alone to 1619, is absurd.

I noticed at the end of this video that it was funded by Dr. Bob Shillman foundation. I’m proud to say that I use to work for his company some years ago and it was one of the best work experience of my life. He is a generous person and took care of his employees. I’m glad to see that he is a supporter of truth and America’s greatest.

This feels so right to watch on a day in which a great man MLK jr. fought peaceful for justice. But we get past the stubborn and blind people who sees our country has a disaster just we pick one man who did great in 4 years. At last it seems that we can’t unified under hate on the other side. It’s seems like America is turning into a civil war in our country again. IDK really I’m just a half white guy who can’t see a country for it’s truly is .🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

Heroic Black people go out and fight for equal rights, (MLK, Harriet Tubman, Fredrick Douglas) and yet today we have a group of people who got mad at America and instead of trying to change it for the better, all they do is wine and complain about their problems. They published an idiot "Project" to try to prove their point. What is the 1619 project? It's an idiot leftist piece of crap that says- "I don't like this but I'm not going to try change this" (because wining about it is a better option. Life isn't fair. Get over it.

Well, at least now I have context for the one osbcure mention of the claim that "the real purpose of the American revolution was to preserve slavery" in Will Witt's video. I also have confirmation that Will Witt comparing this claim to white supremacy and holocaust denial on the right is misleading, perhaps intentionally so, as this video confirms that "almost all on the left" disagree with it.

Actually America’s Christian foundation was laid twelve years earlier. April 29th, 1607, when Englishmen came ashore at what is now known as Cape Henry, Virginia. They erected a Christian cross on the beach, had a prayer meeting and dedicated this new land to the furtherance of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We have been living under that blessing for over four hundred years!

My thing is your holding a government accountable that didn't exist in 1619 . Big cover up for those states that did existed in 1619 that did support slavery . Virginia being a slave state half of the original 13 colonies where slave states. If anything those who ran slavery in 1619 still exist in the same party that fight to keep slavery. 1619 Virginia was a Democratic ran state . Slavery is a result of power hungry people who wish to control you which has always existed in the Democratic party. The Republican party was started to end slavery . Democrats should be lucky a John Brown doesn't show up to the kkk Democratic convention fake nominee elect. A John Brown is coming for the tyrants in the Democratic party. Remember the Browns some of the first to fight back against the Democrats monarchy.

The 1619 project is a false narrative. Even among individual races there are those within their own community that will oppose and oppress individuals of their own color simply due to social hierarchy, creating a false sense of value above others. In this world there are good people and there are bad people. And where there is ignorance and lack of understanding of cultural differences, both kinds are susceptible to stumbling - except those bad individuals don't care for understanding. Differences in skin color is a false crutch of reasoning for hatred as is the false reasoning of what formed our country... and the 1619 project seeks to divide us rather than unite us.

If all these people are so disillusioned why don't they consider moving outside. The country. There are many places in this world that have places that are liberal. No country is perfect, but the US has tried to fix these problems. Teach history correctly to let all students and decide. This country has tried to get rid of slavery and segrigation. If the US is such a horrible place why do immigrants in the millions come to this country? I would think immigrants would move somewhere else after going through a 1619 project.

What's wrong with the 1619 Project? EVERYTHING! Also, many slaves who served in the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War were actually granted Freedom after serving an allotted time! Therefore, the claim that the Revolutionary War was fought to "preserve slavery" in the Colonies is an outright LIE! Finally, how is Racism "an unchangeable part of America", when it has been outright abolished for well-over a century, and all other forms of slavery are against Federal Law? The Past cannot be altered, but it can (and should) be used as a marker to gauge just how far we've changed, developed, and matured as a country!

If you do a little bit of research you can see that historians praise the 1619 project's general message and intent but say that there is some inaccuracies and that the text is a bit too pessimistic. So I think the portrayal prageru makes is somewhat misleading

@RIP Mac Miller, you helped me with a lot I think you're right in the respect that we don't generally look very deep into what we are told but if theres a probability someone sees my comment and decides "you know what im going to look into it myself" I think its worth it (I guess that makes me pretty optimistic).

I reckon most people who like Prager U don't invest time in researching anything. The whole point of this channel is for them to spoon feed one-sided ideas to people who lack the willingness to learn about a particular subject on their own. Something like this deserves to be discussed by people who thoroughly understand what this "1619 Project" is about, with clear references for us to look at and think about. But "thinking" is not something that is valued anymore, we want to be "told" everything. There's no way I'm listening to some robotic dude read from a script, I want to hear real thoughts and see this "project" so I can form my own thoughts.

I'm no dummy. I can easily tell that the shade of one's skin is inconsequential to who that person is on an intellectual and evolutionary level, but on a cultural level, things are different. Culturally, black Americans hate white Americans, and that reason by itself is enough for me to want a Caucasian ethnostate whos borders are off limits to blacks. If no difference in color is perceived, there can be no conflict over color.
