Oh God is right.

The nerve of some people.

Like that 'Professor'.

Considering what was done to the IRISH, and what was done to the Native Americans.

Genocide against the Natives, and to this day STILL live on 'fema' camps.

Tell us again how 'bad' African Americans have had it.

Slave owners weren't the ones giving their lives for the Confederacy, and the soldiers that were, weren't the ones writing the secession declarations... That's the first time I've heard someone claim that others were trying to cast the slave owners as victims. Lol, you'll have to do better than that. 95% were fighting to be free and didn't own a single slave.

It's not about hurt feelings. I'd be willing to bet that every poster that agrees with me about knocking that bully to the floor isn't agreeing because their feelings are hurt. It's putting a stop to a cancer before it has a chance to spread.

Okay, so, in another thread, you're complaining about people who can't let the past go ... and in this one, you're complaining about what was done to people in the past.

You didn't read Dr. Yancy's article. There's no reason to try to discuss it with you. You're just doing your usual.

Read it, and we'll talk.

You're assuming things. If I'm steadily forcing you to think you're a racist just for being white, you're a bully. Enlighten me where politics comes to play in that, I'll wait.

No need for linking. I've read all of the declarations of secession. First you need to understand that there was more than just slavery in those declarations, then you need to understand that the men who created and wrote those declarations weren't the ones fighting and dying for the Confederacy, then you understand that 95% of the men that fought for the Confederacy were not slave owners.

Again, to the victor goes the written history. And it's been revised since then to reflect badly on Southerners.

The problem with that is the Gov't are the real bullies. People need to strategize and come together in order to think of a solution to eliminate the enemy within. When that happens, everything will change. Until then, nothing. I truly hope it does though, and soon. People are smarter than that, they know what's going on however, they need a leader to pave the way, something to believe in. Then revolution will begin and freedom will reign.


We tried getting away from a corrupt and bullyish government in 1860-61... All that proved is that the victors get to rewrite history the way they want to.


Today it is taught it was about slavery.

When in fact it was about states rights VS. the FED GOV.

Good spin tactics existed even back then.


Complete and utter nonsense. It was only about states rights in as far as the Southern States wanted to preserve and expand slavery.

And this is indisputably proved through the official, clear and articulate declarations of those states explaining why they were seceding from the union.

No offense but that is silly propaganda espoused by those looking to cast slave owners as victims.

You can engage in some objective research if you choose..


Why because you dont like it?

Before that, the states had the rights to tell the FED GOV to stuff it.

After they all must bow down to the FED GOV on any issue it makes a declaration on.

Slavery was just the issue that brought it to a head.

It could have been any other issue.

The fact is, some wanted a centralized power in total control of the country, instead of many states controlling themselves with minimalist federal control.

Slavery was just a great propaganda piece to use to force this issue.

Because nobody in their right minds would want slavery to continue, or a centralized power with full authority.

But as most things, it wasnt divided into 2 seperate issues.

It was made into 1 issue.

Slavery ended, and began on the same day.

Now blacks arent slaves, but the states are in fact slaves to the FED GOV.

Slavery would have ended eventually no matter what, but they only had the one chance to install federal dictatorship over the states.

So instead of state level legislation finally ending slavery, they ended it, and established absolute authority for the FED GOV over the states at the same time.

I thought that was obvious.

Seeing how all the confederate states didnt argue the merits of slavery, but the rights of the states to rule themselves.

That is why they left.

Robert E Lee, one of the greatest battlefield commanders in history was asked by Lincoln to lead the FED ARMY, he declined, instead choosing to represent his home state Virginia.

This is a historical fact.

He didnt do it because he wanted slaves, he did it because he didnt want Virginia ruled by washington.


Many don't know this, because it's not discussed in the revised history books and doesn't put such a rancid light on the Confederacy. Lee didn't even favor the idea of slavery. How many people know that though?

I'm a bully because you're forcing me to think I'm a bully for being white? What?

Did you perhaps mean to say something like "Dr. Yancy is a bully for making people think they are racist just for being white?"

You're going to have to make some sense before we move on to politics ... honestly.

Is that what you were trying to say?

The precious snowflakes in charge of the political correction train wreck have deemed only whiteys as racist. Everyone else is allowed to be racist.


Everyone can be racist, but there is good racism and bad racism ,and it seems only whitie can be the bad kind...geez lol

I have always wondered if I went to China where I would be a minority by about 2 billion and I decided I hates Chinese because of who they are would my racism now be the good kind?

You don't know what you're talking about. No amount of unnecessary spaces are going to add validity to your argument. Since you choose to bring up Lee in your bullsh#t revisionist history argument, let's see what the man himself said about the reasons for secession.

Robert E. Lee in a letter dated December 27, 1856:


I was much pleased the with President's message. His views of the systematic and progressive efforts of certain people at the North to interfere with and change the domestic institutions of the South are truthfully and faithfully expressed. The consequences of their plans and purposes are also clearly set forth. These people must be aware that their object is both unlawful and foreign to them and to their duty, and that this institution, for which they are irresponsible and non-accountable, can only be changed by them through the agency of a civil and servile war. There are few, I believe, in this enlightened age, who will not acknowledge that slavery as an institution is a moral and political evil. It is idle to expatiate on its disadvantages. I think it is a greater evil to the white than to the colored race. While my feelings are strongly enlisted in behalf of the latter, my sympathies are more deeply engaged for the former. The blacks are immeasurably better off here than in Africa, morally, physically, and socially.


He's referring to President Franklin Pierce who was an anti-abolitionist, notable for supporting the right of the former Indian Territories to determine whether or not to allow slavery (Kansas–Nebraska Act) and for his support for the Fugitive Slave Act.

Of course, like many others of his time, though he viewed slavery as wrong, he justified its existence in part by holding that African slaves were better off as slaves in America than free people in Africa (the mid-19th century fear of white guilt?).


He didnt do it because he wanted slaves, he did it because he didnt want Virginia ruled by washington.


Contort all you want, in the end it all comes back to one thing — the only sovereign "right" the seceding states cared to preserve was the "right" to preserve the institution of African slavery which was the backbone of their agrarian economies. Robert E. Lee clearly knew what you cannot bring yourself to admit and he was pretty deep in denial (he also believed that Christianity would bring about an end to slavery when God deemed it).

The letter he wrote was wonderful so I am wondering why everyone is so negative to it? Racism causes a very subtle influence on our behaviour which can be detected by those we are racist against even though we don't think we have a racist bone in our body. Ms. Jane Elliott's "brown eyes, blue eyes" experiment in 1970's showed that everyone is susceptible to racism. It exist so we need be mindful of our behaviour and try minimize the impact of our negative feelings on others.

The fact is that we are all racist. It's a natural human trait. It's an extension of primate xenophobia.

Us. Them. Not us. Bad.

We have the choice, however, not to act based on our internal racism.

Dr. Yancy has been hoodwinked by academia to believe that minorities can't really be racist or prejudicial ... because they have no power. Which is, of course, horse manure.

We're all racists, every last one of us. The degree to which we contain those inbred urges determines our character.

I really don't care if my actions are beyond criticism. Have you ever heard of the knockout game where blacks punch unsuspecting whites just to see if they can knock them out? At least I'd be taking out a bully. I wouldn't mind if girls fought, a girl needs to be able to take care of herself if her man isn't there to protect her. I'd rather my girl carry a pistol for protection.

Anyways, punching this guy isn't what i would consider violent. It's more of a "STFU you racist moron" kinda deal for me. And if anyone feels that way towards me, I welcome them to approach me and punch me in the jaw or attempt to. I wouldn't do anything to anyone that I would hate to be done to me, so don't worry, I'm not discriminating or being a hypocrite.

You tried pulling the 'elder' thing on me (as if that's some valid argument), when it looks like I'm about the same age as you. I asked if you think women go around settling their differences with fisticuffs, but it looks like you don't believe that anyway. Therefore, your 'typical behavior' is actually not; it would apply only to men. I'm not sure how he is a bully writing an open letter in an opinion section of The New York Times. Perhaps you can clarify?

The knockout game is basically an urban legend. There are well over a hundred thousand assaults a year, and it sure ain't a new thing.

Yes, punching someone and knocking out their teeth is violent by the very definition of the word. It doesn't matter that you think it isn't.

Don't even have the tapes any more.

So ... did you still want to talk about politics and unravel that mess you made of your last post before trying to side-step?

Or are you just going to dance? Perhaps you'd prefer "Cotton Eye Joe"?

His letter is a political statement, for starters.

Why else would he pen such a thing? He's trying to get out a message to change the way people think, act, and go about their lives?

Do you think "politics" is limited to R and D?
