And now were finding it was a Democrat that translated what Trump said to #- Hole and fed it to the press.

Not to mention the Republicans / Whigs worked to abolish slavery

Technicalities i know

"You have to say WHY I am wrong.. "


Sigh,, what have i been doin all this time I will ask the other here on ATS?

You and several like you refuse to see the forest while standing amongst all the trees IMO..State something wrong and I will offer the facts to allow you the opportunity to learn and correct your course. But I suspect it wouldn't happen no matter as I suspect some of you guys are paid to be here on ATS giving 'flak'.

But back then the democrat party was the conservatives...

Conservatism = to conserve the tradions on the past rather than attempt societal change..

They wanted to conserve slavery..

At that time the gop were the progressives or left. Wanting to do away with the traditions of the past in favor of societal changes..

That is the kinda thing just your average Webster’s dictionary could debunk..

We are not talking ancient history here...

We still have countless diaries and letters and even video and such after the turn of the century..

The democrat party more than split..

Once on the eve of first Lincoln’s election, which is the only reason the gop even exists and he was elected..

If not for that the gop prob never takes power..

The second time was during the civil rights movement. When the northern and urban dems decided to champion civil rights, and the southern and rural dems chose to oppose it.

After JFK’s landslide election the GOP decided they needed to make a chamge. So they started catering to the southern whites pissed at the democrat party championing the civil rights act.

Not because they were necessary racist, but because jfk won like a rock star and they were scared they never win another election..

The gop did the same recently with obama.. happily accepting the conspiracy crowd into their mainstream after obama won like a rockstar with a landslide..

Not because he was “black”.. half black really.. but because of how bad they lost and out of a fear of becoming irrelevant.

It doesn’t matter why the soldiers fight in a war...

In every war in history the soldiers fight for countless various different reasons..

But in every war in history the reason the war started comes down to the motivations of a handful of politicians..

And concerning the civil war they were ALL perfectly happy to repeatedly state it was to protect slavery AND to maintain the supremacy of the white race.

To be fair the north was just as white supremacist..

It was the scuentificly agreed upon fact that the white race was superior and meant to rule... which absolutely includes Lincoln.


So you claim that your northern relatives fought to end slavery is dubious as well.. since very few in the north fought to end slavery..

The war from the US governments pov was to maintain the union.. something else they were quick to say repeatedly..

The mainstream narrative didn’t swap to slavery until mid to late war..

The black soldiers fighting and the emancipation proclamation being used as a military tactic , shifted the motivation.

“Are we really gonna send these brave soldiers who fought for the USA and their families back into bondage??”


Became abolitionist candy.. that is some hard logic to argue with..

The simple fact is, visiting Haiti excludes you from donating blood. There is a reason for that, and it isn't because you might infect others with paradise.

The UK started the slave trade, Scotland is/was part of the UK empire, therefore all Scots are responsible for African and caribbean countries problems.


I think you'll find that the slave trade is as old as human kind. The UK meddled in the slave trade for a while, saw that it was bad and was the only country at the time making it illegal.

en.wikipedia.org...

You also forgot the Portugese who ACTUALLY started the slave trade:
www.discoveringbristol.org.uk...


Slave trade is still going swimmingly even today, especially by arab nations. Women and children are sold as [sex, domestic] slaves right as we speak.
Here, watch that:
www.youtube.com...

So you are wrong about the UK. Just saying.

I did and you are trying,, kudo's bro. The conservatives left for the R's and indies BECAUSE of racism not to be racist...... That part you could see too if you wanted to do that. My family all voted D but after years of the Jim Crow and the wonderful speeches of MLK, we saw fit to leave them because we saw them for who they were, dividers.
ETA

My pop was slow to accept it but he now says MLK was right. He grew up in a rural setting with blacks not n's.. My mom grew up calling them N's and she changed too. We reached out to and I still go to church once a month at an all black church that likes my voice. They accept me and I am learning how to move like i was born black while i sing LOL...

Being a scientist who has served in the Army, and I am a Christian who can sing at a professional level makes me realize I am def not a normal person....

That's not entirely true...You are only not allowed to donate for 6 months to a year upon returning from Haiti. I went once to help several physician friend with doctors without boarders. We all couldn't donate for at a min of 6 months. The doctors were given a year due to their direct contact with blood of Haitians.

So its true...

Yes, its a 6 month "quarantine" period.

Point being, just being present there puts you in a class of risk that precludes participation in standard western practices.

Dangerous to only wait 6 mo's but I would say a year should be for everyone just in case. Slow moving things can take a while to be triggered...

I think that might apply to anyone who travels internationally... I’m guessing here, but I bet giving blood they ask if you’ve been out of country. Not have you been to a “S hole”..


Obviously, local communities and geographical regions have unique diseases and such.. things that they have immunities to That we do not necessarily Have immunities to.


My point is that’s a almost certainly bogus to take that as proof a place is garbage. When imho your not gonna wanna go swapping blood with anyone half a world away no matter how advanced the society... AND THEY SOULDNT WANNA SWAP BLOOD WITH US.


What if Strep throat is mainly confined to the Americas.

Then someone in Norway , who’s lineage has always been from that region, isn’t gonna have any immunity to step throat.. it might even kill them.

Hows the food there?

I've this theory that some of the best food comes from some of the poorest places. That 'rich living' isnt based entirely on fancy surroundings, and that a compensation is likely to occur at the foundation of our existence: FOOD.

I've not donated any time recently (been a few years)....but the last time they asked about Haiti (and a few other places) specifically.

Im taking that to mean that its entirely likely that Haiti is a #hole. If it isn't, then perhaps you can point to the amenities that the typical westerner would be accustomed to while travelling. Maybe detail some of the shopping, or local flair, that a tourist could take in.

There isn't any. Because it is a #hole.

That isn't a judgement on the people. Its an assessment of the state of the island relative to what a westerner would expect.
