Do you get all your history from movies? Yes, the pay difference between whites and colored was real but this scene was not. It was a dramatization.
Many of the men who served and died in the 54 Massachussets regiment enlisted in the hope that serving might win them their freedom one day.
So what you are saying is that these black men where also wage slaves who kept the evil war machine running?
WE ALL DO - with every transaction that is taxed we feed the war machine and until we can end the idea and use of a monetary system it will continue
The entire world could free itself in 2 weeks if we all acted in concert and conducted a general strike. Figure out how to make that happen and I will
gladly join in.
Being critical of others only makes them defensive, not receptive.
Let's not overlook the contributions of black soldiers in the history of our nation. I feel the thrust of your post ignores the content of what the
video actually represents.
