Just another proud moment in the storied history of Ol' Virginny.

An observation of the Virginia Confederacy that doesn't acknowledge or include a reference to slavery.

And conservatives REALLY wonder why people think they're racist?

What's the difference between rightwingnuts (the moron in the item, teabaggers, or Pat Robertson) and Osama bin Laden?

Both are willing to commit violence and hate, but OBL isn't afraid of the consequences. He's willing to dies for his views, the US's rightwingnuts are only willing to kill for them. Why else would the Young Republicans be so terrified of military service?

If we can not recognized that there is discrimination and hatred toward the white race today, how can we say that there was discrimination and hatred toward the black race hundreds of years ago.

Goes both ways. Should not have a double standard.

No one ever announces about the fact that the first slaves in America were white, brought over from Europe.

No White History Month, no racism lawsuits by whites against blacks who commit hate crimes against them, no special government funding for whites who are poor (especially, the Appalachian Mountain area), etc.

Racism is going on today with discrimination and enslavement with blacks but this is in Africa.

Africa is still selling their own race into slavery as we post. Africa is still genociding millions of blacks for the sole purpose they are poor blacks today.

Just a month ago, a group of blacks went and massacre with machetes over 500 blacks, including babies, children, women and men.

Where is this action in America?

Why doesn't this government acknowledge that hundreds of thousands of white people lost their
lives, property, jobs, etc. aiding and fighting for the rights and freedom of everyone?

Our government has kept racism alive in order to feed off of it. They enjoy this, it keeps the excuses alive and something they can easily give as an excuse for screwing up America.

But supporting blatantly racist chapters in US History isn't one of them.

I nominate Obama for this one and all of his cabinet crack heads.

From someone that is sick and tired of blacks saying whites are racists. If we were to start White American College Fund then we are racist. Its reverse racisism that there is even a negro college fund.

"Isreal is evil" told you to take I-95 north. Got a better one for you! Head east till you have several hundred feet of atlantic water over your head, then breath deep. Have a nice day buttercup.
