    I have no idea what you are talking about, and your comment makes absolutely no sense the context we were discussing.

    What I find most shocking, is how some folks think that black people are so weak minded, that a simple thing like racism will keep them down.
    Well, it succeeded pretty well for a 150 years.

    1864 until 1964 = 100 years of Jim Crow.

    You're still not getting, but whatever.

    1864? Are you referring to the Battle of Cold Harbor?

    It's ironic that the term Jim Crowe still exist in contemporaryl conversation.

    It's apparent that those who repeat it are the least intersted in a world free of racism.

    You'd be taken more serious on the issue if you knew how to spell Jim Crow. However, since you don't, I figure you know little or nothing about it.
