You obviously didn't read the article. We already know you're an ignorant fool, you don't need to prove it on a daily basis...just sayin'

"The two-story building fronted by four huge terra cotta columns is perched on a hillside overlooking U.S. 52. It was built in 1928, after a group of black veterans successfully petitioned the McDowell County Commission for construction funds following the completion of a memorial to white veterans at the county courthouse in Welch."

Apparently, you can't read, can you? Of course you're just another ignorant racist, so no one really cares at all.

Well, idiot, it wouldn't have included blacks because in 1928 America was as backwards as you are today. That was why the blacks built their own memorial. In 1928, segregation was the way it was. We've moved on since then. Too bad racists like yourself haven't.

Well yes, ignorant southern democrats sure were. They are now republicans because the northern democrats ran their asses off.

But if you folks don't want to talk about George Bush as being the reason for all of today's problems, why in the world would you want to go back that far in history?

You must have to wear a helmet everywhere you go, Corky.

Since you spend most of your time in the outhouse searching for other Riffes, my guess is you'll be making those marks on the wall with feces.

Hey Sundog, This is the memorial I was telling you about in another post. The only WW1 memorial in America. What a tribute it would be nice to have the washington post, NY times, or the philadelphia inquire come here and do a story, Dam. That gives me an idea. Back at cha ladha kid!

Peace.
