74% of all Black births are to single mothers, compared to 24% whites. Are you saying the black illegitimate birth rate could be even higher without abortions ? If that's the case we should increase the amounts of abortions in the Black community by 500% at least. The cost of supporting 74% of
black births is out of control, and the men and women having these kids should be given permanent
birth control. Crimes committed by Blacks reflect the illegitimate birth rates.

Times may be tough, but not so tough that my soul is for sale along with my abilities to do a job. If free speech can be extended to the likes of Westboro Baptist Church and Fred Phelps' terrorists, it should certainly cover a bumper sticker.
Some even demand your password and name/handle to all of your social media accounts.

Like the pledge of alligance to the flag, flying a flag should be mandatory if you live in the USA!
Unfortunately some HoAs have banned the flying of the American flag from their grounds.

In many cases it is the absentee owners(ones who are renting out their units) dictating what can and can not be done in the complex. I know of one complex, NO personal signs can be out. This includes if you are selling your home.

Not all Whites could afford to own a slave. Some refused to own slaves. Thus not all of the wealth came from slaves. Many a shopowner also didn't own slaves. It wasn't profitable to have a slave as a worker. And when you add the fact that there were laws against slaves knowing their numbers and letters. And shop folks needed to know their numbers and letters.
.
Some slaveowners were Blacks themselves. After buying their own freedom. If they were not already born free. Some of them then they would buy the ownership of other slaves.
.
Plus, cotton was NOT the only cash crop down south. Many a farmer grew food crops. And or owned cattle, pigs, chickens, etc. Tobacco was another cash crop. Same goes for hemp to make ropes with.
.
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/aia/part4/4p2956.html Fully 3/4 of Southern whites did not even own slaves; of those who did, 88% owned twenty or fewer. Whites who did not own slaves were primarily yeoman farmers. Practically speaking, the institution of slavery did not help these people.
....In the lower South the majority of slaves lived and worked on cotton plantations.
.
In fact most slaveowners tended to work along side their slaves in order to make sure the farm survived.
http://www.digitalhistory.uh.edu/disp_textboo... The white South’s social structure was much more complex than the popular stereotype of proud aristocrats disdainful of honest work and ignorant, vicious, exploited poor whites. The old South’s intricate social structure included many small slaveowners and relatively few large ones.
....Large slaveholders were extremely rare. In 1860 only 11,000 Southerners, three-quarters of one percent of the white population owned more than 50 slaves; a mere 2,358 owned as many as 100 slaves. However, although large slaveholders were few in number, they owned most of the South’s slaves. Over half of all slaves lived on plantations with 20 or more slaves and a quarter lived on plantations with more than 50 slaves.
....The average slaveowner lived in a log cabin rather than a mansion and was a farmer rather than a planter. The average holding varied between four and six slaves, and most slaveholders possessed no more than five.
.
Thing is, hemp rope is still around. And twine can be made from either cotton and or hemp.
http://www.neropes.com/resources/history_of_r... Tarred hemp was the preferred fiber for
marine use from pre-colonial times to
the 1940s.
