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

    You don't know much about it either, since you think Jim Crow started in 1864.

    No, thanks to Lyndon Johnson and a liberal congress, those things are a thing of the past. However, should Ron Paul ever be elected President and the Civil Rights Act repealed, we could see it again.

    I used it as a marker for roughly when the 13th was ratified (it was actually official in 1865), it being 100 years before the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was passed. You got a problem with that?

    No, you said Jim Crow was inacted in 1864, which is historically inaccurate.

    Uh, no. Not what I meant nor really said, exactly. But, I can see where that would be interpreted as such. I mean, sure, life was a grand old party for a few years during reconstruction, but it was so short-lived, I don't really see how that would count. For all intents and purposes, Blacks went from being enslaved to being forced to live in apartheid.
