Please look over your pictures on Dr. King. In the lovely pictorial Dr. Spocks name is spelled incorrectly. It is not spook.

Why bother to mention Lee & Jackson? It's all about King and you know it. For some weird reason, it is no longer PC to mention Virginians who may have been good men in their day but happened to be on the "wrong" side.

"States' Rights" - euphemism for racism, redneckery, fascism, evil....

The Confederacy was evil personified.

All of you need to stop this. I have read alot of post about race. It is 2008!!!! All were great men, it is not about race. I remember these photos from my younger years and was really struck with emotion they stirred in me. Stop your complaining and belly aching and do something positive with your time.

It has been white history month for years. I have lived in the south for most of my life but was born in the north. My mothers greatest regret about moving south was that she doomed me to a life with southern men. I opted out. I am neither black nor white for the record.

Why didn't your mother stay up there in yankee land and keep you with her if she regrets moving here.

Why don't you do a little research before you embarass yourself with more ignorant statements.

So your mother regretted moving south? Not as much as we regretted her moving south. Why didn't she stay up north if she hates us so much?
