Most white wealth in the US is held in the form of real estate and this is how they got it.
It goes without saying that once they stole the land and killed or drove out former inhabitants, the structures erected on that land to continue to generate wealth — buildings, plowed fields, irrigation systems, sewage systems, kitchens, furnaces, mills, workshops — were built by enslaved artisans and craftspeople kidnapped from overseas.
This is the story of US American wealth creation. No secret here.
