Is there a relevant difference between the founders' advocacy for a violent severing of the bond between Britain and the colonies, and the Black Nationals' advocacy for violent severing of the bond between America and black people?

Huge difference: we laid out a list of grievances and waited to hear what the Kung said. He sent soldiers. Our fight was because they attacked us. We fought and won.

So, just to be clear, are you implying that black people didn't lay grievances to the US government or citizenship, and also that they weren't attacked, and so violence by them was not a last resort nor in self defense as it was for the revolution?

For those of you who think there is a difference, I'm curious and want to know what difference you see between the two movements.
