White Southerners' rights are violated every day. Forced integration, busing, massive nonwhite-on-White crime, telling Whites who they have to sell their houses to, exorbitant income taxes to fund a nonwhite criminal underclass, illegal immigration that is overwhelmingly nonwhite, anti-White discrimination in every aspect of life including hiring, promotions, scholarships, the list goes on. This is just another in a long list of things the anti-White, anti-Confederate establishment has implemented to demonize, slander and dehumanize White Southerners that are proud of their Confederate heritage. We have never consented and will never consent to any of these things!!!
I guess if your proud to be an ignoramous, stand tall, thats your right and you exercize it well.

among hate crime offenses motivated by race, 70% were composed of anti-black bias, while 17.7% were of anti-white bias

Walter is the stereotype by which non-Southerners judge the Southerners who are proud of our heritage for positive reasons, not hate and bias.

Walter speaks (spews) for himself, and not for the rest of us. I suppose he is white, but the pejorative terms he spews reflect his own character.

The Civil War had very little to do with slavery. Abe Lincoln did not fight the Civil War to free slaves.
"My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it,
Yours,
A. Lincoln"
I am a proud Southerner and I believe slavery was wrong and should have been abolished. I am the descendant of Southerners, some of which fought as Confederate Soldiers, but none ever owned a slave. We did not fight so plantation owners could continue to own slaves. We fought to preserve our proud heritage that did not include owning slaves.
Why don't you post Abe's entire statement - why cherry pick only the part that suit's your agenda? Here is the entire statement providing readers a better view into the intended context :"My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that. What I do about slavery and the colored race, I do because I believe it helps to save the Union; and what I forbear, I forbear because I do not believe it would help save the Union."

He was all for shipping slaves back to Africa, how he ended up with his monument in DC I don't know. History leaves out a great deal in the history books.
