Was it a good idea to bring the African to America?
Why or why not?

Id say over all no. Of course they were originally bought over as slaves, that in itself was awful. But after it ended, the black people had/have a lot of resentment toward white people and have done ever since, now what you have are two races of people who arent 100% happy with co-existing. Because of the resentment by black people from what happened in the past, they often dont have the motivation to succeed as most white people do, and white people often judge them because of it, and now you have racism and racist tendencies toward each other. There isnt anything you can do about it, you cant send them back to Africa, and you cant make all white people like them, nor can you make black people change their stereotypical ways. In terms of the benefits of the work that slaves provided, America wouldnt be what it is or where it is without that and that will be forever appreciated. Of course it could have all been done without slaves though.

Slavery was an accepted practice in Colonial America as elsewhere in the World at the time. Ethically, no. But economically, especially in the South where cheap labor on the cotton plantations brought huge profits, yes.

It was a stain on our young nation. That would be no..."Some" of those that are here were taught to resent being here

They made some good music before rap took 9ver, and were good athletes, a few actors were good, construction workers. That's about it.
Blacks offer little to society.
God made them to be slaves in my opinion for centuries.

Things were great when they were slaves and weren’t allowed to go ape in the streets like they do today 🦍

It is not a good idea to enslave people anywhere. Whether they are moved to another location or are enslaved in place. But that has no bearing on what people will be motivated to do against another, for their own benefit.
Slavery is slavery , no matter where it occurs and who it occurs to.
