Funny, I don't think the slave catchers who brought Africans to this country thought they would ever get citizenship.  I don't think the people who kept them as chattel wanted them to get citizenship, either.  And the people who unconstitutionally denied them their right to vote didn't care that they were citizens.

Saying that black people should be grateful for slavery because it got them citizenship is comparable to saying that Jews should be thankful for the Holocaust because it got them a country of their own.
