Why do right wingers always assume that people who know about
the extent of white racism in the USA always attribute it to white
guilt, when it's a simple fact of our history? I have lived in a black
neighborhood in the past. It didn't change my opinions.
#50759 Apr 11, 2014
Still categorizing everybody? That was awfully nice of you, to live in a black neighborhood.They must have been honored.:)
#50760 Apr 11, 2014
Racism is everywhere.For many"valid"reasons.T o say that blacks are racists because whites are, justifies everybody being racists. Tell me Red, ever been in jail ?

About the only folks still buying the tariff explanation
are neo-Confederate goobers. Even they are too
embarrassed to admit their ancestors were fighting to
preserve the right of people to own other people and
not to protest a tariff. Look at the secession documents
of some of the Confederate states. They make much
mention of slavery, very little of tariffs. They knew damn
well it was a war to save slavery. What's funny about the
southern hotheads is that if they hadn't started to secede
even before Lincoln was inaugurated, slavery likely would
have lasted longer. But they were so afraid that Lincoln
was going to immediately outlaw slavery that they just
couldn't wait to leave the Union. By doing so they ended
slavery quicker. So thanks slaveocrats, you screwed
yourselves over. Thank goodness the North won and the
slaveocrats were beat.

You were the one who first mentioned black neighborhoods. I
simply replied to it. The slaveocrats were the ones who were
big on categorizing people and then owning the ones they
considered to be inferior to them.

I think Patriot feels pretty strongly about the Civil War.
#50764 Apr 11, 2014
All of a sudden it wasn't a war against slavery when the divide had been building for decades.
Compromise of 1820
Nat Turner rebellion in Virginia
Compromise of 1850 and the fugitive slave act.
Dred Scott Supreme Court Act
Kansas- Nebraska Act.
Bleeding Kansas/ John Brown's attempt to arm slaves
None of these things built up to the division and eventual war between the North and South did it? Oh no, not a war about slavery!

Hey Red, know much about the Zulus? EVERYBODY knows they were great fighters.Know much about their culture?
#50766 Apr 11, 2014
Because it's a motivating factor for your ignorant idea that blacks are racist ONLY because whitey was racist first. You think that all black on white crime is the fault of whites past racism... See how childish and guilty that sounds?
#50767 Apr 11, 2014
The history of African slavery is quite interesting.Reading different sources on the slave trade takes one to unexpected places.I'm reading more about it even today.Knowledge is a great thing,facts are there for all to discover, if they wish.
#50768 Apr 11, 2014
Yep. And 600,000 soldiers died... The South was destroyed and you celebrate like the Yankee you are...
#50769 Apr 11, 2014
I'm not Republican slow coach.. Can't you get that through your thick unthinking head? Spit in my face? If he saw what the fuck his so- called Southern great, great grandson believes in and supports now I'm sure you would be out by the woodshed getting your ass thrashed by all your Southern ancestors.... And I would be there too... Gettin my damn licks in too...

So is 55 million abortions rare in 41 years? Our country will look back in shame at this horrific policy and the untold damage it has done to our country. Instead of damned policies, people just practice self control.

Do You Honestly think I would lift a finger to stop the Federal Government from taking away the Koch Brothers' Illegal Aliens ???
Do you Honestly think Anyone Could Force me to take up arms against the USA and Fight For the Koch Brothers???
They could not Force the hundreds of thousands of Confederates to fight for the right of Rich Folks to own slaves, when 97% of Confederate Soldiers Were Highly Opposed to Slavery in the first place.
Only 3% of the Southerners Owned Slaves
Brave men Only Fight for Causes they Personally Believe In..........
The Society Elite Plantation Owners looked down their snooty nose at My Great Grandfather who owned a section of land (160 Acres) that he inherited from his Father. He Knew that they did not look at him as an equal....
Even the Slaves of the Rich Plantation looked down their noses at my "Po White Trash" Dirt Farmer whose family had to work in the fields like Black Field Hand Slaves.
He was not allowed to vent his anger on them because they were "Private Property" and he would have had to pay damages...The same thing was true allover the South...
The Black Slaves had the "Honor" of being owned by rich high society folks...
His son would Not have been allowed to see, let alone Marry one of the Rich Plantation Owner's daughters....
He was an extremely Hard-Working man who came home from the war, farmed, and Logged Timber, made huge log rafts, and floated those logs down the Altamaha River to Darien,Ga where he sold them. Then he walked back over 60 miles upriver to his home through the swamp. He did that over and over and bought more land every time he had enough money..
He floated his last log raft downriver in 1917, walked home, took a bath, shaved, laid down on the bed and Died in his sleep... He owned a little over 2,000 acres of land and built 5 houses for his sons that are still standing today..
He Never owned a Slave, neither did his Father, nor his Grandfather...
