Tim Kaine has claimed in a speech on the Senate floor that America invented slavery. The Washington Free Beacon quotes Kaine as saying,
The United States didn’t inherit slavery from anybody. We created it,” Kaine said. “It got created by the Virginia General Assembly and the legislatures of other states.” He added that the country needs to do “much more” to “dismantle the structures of racism that our federal, state, and local governments erected and maintained over centuries.
