Slavery in Africa decreased immensely due to the effects of the Atlantic, Red Sea, Indian Ocean and Trans-Saharan slave trades abolition. Complete legal abolition of slavery did not cease in Africa until the 21st Century, with Mauretania outlawing the practice only in 2007; however, according to the UN slavery still exists in much of North Africa.

You dont see the Jewish Community bitching about slavey. As they would have more rights to do so than and other race(I am Not Jewish by the way) Their life as slaves is well realized in such works as, oh lets see, oh yeah THE BIBLE,

My last words to you people that perpetrate racesium. You are the ones that need help not the people that see history as what it is HISTORY. I can change it, if i could I would not be typing this, So get the H++L over it and move the F++K on.

You did not follow the conversation. It was stated that slavery was not a cause or the cause for the civil war so I posted part of the Articles of Succession for the state of Mississippi. Any person that can read that and say that slavery was not a cause for the war is in denial of truth. That was the purpose of the post and no other. Racism is ignorance that is usually passed to a person from a family member while in their youth. It is a taught abnormality. Young children are not born with it they are taught it. Young children do not make judgements based on skin color.

"Honest Abe" had a plan for after the war. His plan was to free all the slaves and send them back "home". His plan was to use ships to carry all the former slaves back to Africa. John Wilkes Boothe killed Abe and that was the end of the plan.

Since this post is named "Confederate Flag",SOME folks should learn their history.

The so called crossed bar "confederate Flag" being bashed is actually the Confederate BATTLE Flag,whose Colors were uncased when A unit went into battle.

This is entirely DIFFERENT from the official Confederate States Flag(s).

nd for the record... neither the design nor the content have anything to do with racism, slavery, hatred or white supremacy... or anything worse!

All the COLOR could be removed from this flag, leaving just the outline of the details, and the true message the design is sending could still be determined by anyone with a basic knowledge of history and an ounce of common sense.

.

First of all, this flag is NOT the "Confederate Flag." It is the "Battle Flag of Northern Virginia." This design, however, is the one most synonymous with the term, and the one used in various forms on many of the other flags that were flown by the Confederate States. It is also the one most hated by those who are completely and totally ignorant of what it stands for.

So take another look at the flag and answer this very simple question : Do you see a big letter "X" anywhere on the flag? What if I were to lay that X down on its side like this?: Do you see it now? The X is formed by the big, blue bands which are outlined with white trim.

Now take another look at the flag. On this big "X" there are thirteen white stars. See them? Do you know what these thirteen stars represent? They represent the thirteen original, united colonies from which the United States began. Each one of these colonies had its own system of self government... until the start of 'northern aggression' when the northern states began trying to usurp authority over the southern states. This was the main cause of the Civil War.

Point of fact : The thirteen stars on this flag appear to lie on the blue X... but in reality, the X lies on the stars, allowing them to shine through.

Now, a simple question : Do you remember from your grade-school years how the teachers would sometimes ask you to circle the right answers or picture on a work page, or to put an X on a picture or word or other item that didn't belong in a group? That is the same concept this flag is designed around; the stars are laid out in the pattern of an X, and the blue bands are put on the thirteen stars to show that the southern states no longer wanted to be a part of the union with the northern states. In simpler terms, the message of flag's design is simply this... CROSS US OUT of your Union! The southern states withdrew from the union in a movement called "secession," which led to the Civil War.

That is the only message this flag is sending!

That is all there is to it!

It is just that simple!

If this flag actually represented slavery, hatred, white supremacy, or something worse, as so many biased and uneducated people so foolishly believe, then it's design would reflect that by incorporating images of those whom it stood against, and there would be a big X on their images.

But that is NOT what is on this flag!

And that is NOT the message this flag sends!

This flag is NOT racist! NEVER has been! NEVER will be!

What Does the Swastika Mean Now?
There is a great debate as to what the swastika means now. For 3,000 years, the swastika meant life and good luck. But because of the Nazis, it has also taken on a meaning of death and hate.
These conflicting meanings are causing problems in today's society. For Buddhists and Hindus, the swastika is a very religious symbol that is commonly used. Chirag Badlani shares a story about one time when he went to make some photocopies of some Hindu Gods for his temple. While standing in line to pay for the photocopies, some people behind him in line noticed that one of the pictures had a swastika. They called him a Nazi.

Unfortunately, the Nazis were so effective at their use of the swastika emblem, that many do not even know any other meaning for the swastika. Can there be two completely opposite meanings for one symbol?

Unfortunately the use of the flag by idiots post war has done the same harm to the flag.
