    Like Robert Byrd? Oh my bad, he had a D after his name. I find it hilarious a known KKK member was in office up until 2010 but yet it is the Republican party that is the party of racists. Both parties have racists and to believe otherwise is ridiculous. Besides, a true Republican would never don the uniform of a democratic organization.

    as you interpreted it. I was more focused on the end of Jim Crow, not its beginning. from when Slavery was officially ended. Funny how you Conservatives focus on irrelevant crap to make your silly arguments. Who really gives a crap on exactly when Jim Crow started, or whether it was in place for 100 years or 90? I guess its another one of those insignificant details that matters mostly to the Far Right.



    Which means that there wasn't, "equality". The only thing that happened was to create a new oppressed class of people.
    Not punishing the rebels ushered in 90 years of Jim Crow. Obviously, let them off the hook was a serious mistake.

    That would have been a gigantic mistake and Union leaders of the time knew it.
    Not really. We'd have ended up with a South that was mostly Black is all. Do you think that would have been a mistake?



    What about the former Confederates that weren't slave owners?
    What about Nazis who weren't guards in the concentration camps?


    My knowledge of the Civil War--and history as a whole--wasn't attained in the classroom of a public school. You can bet on that...LOL!!
    I bet...it's obvious.


    Well, there's a huge difference.
    Not really. Not by a longshot.

    Their right to own slaves. Right?

    Robert Byrd was a racist. But, he had an epiphany.
    Late in his life, Byrd explicitly renounced his earlier views favoring racial segregation.[49][50] Byrd said that he regretted filibustering and voting against the Civil Rights Act of 1964[51] and would change it if he had the opportunity. He said joining the KKK was "the greatest mistake I ever made."[49] Byrd also said that his views changed dramatically after his teenage grandson was killed in a 1982 traffic accident, which put him in a deep emotional valley. "The death of my grandson caused me to stop and think," said Byrd, adding he came to realize that black people love their children as much as he does his.
    Robert Byrd - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    He was also from a state with a strong union.

    I suspect he was a politician first, and quickly realized playing the GOP's Southern Strategy would not serve him well. So, he abandoned his racist ways.

    Its people like you who fight to keep the distinctions of man relevent because it plays to your agenda.

    I have Union ancestry and confederate ancestry and I'm proud of both.

    With all of your accusations you still can't deny the origins of the Democrat party were overt racist and the racism in the current democrat party is hidden behind the pretense of dependence.

    You wan't to call a Texan "Confederate Scum", you need to come here and say it someone's face.
    So, you Texans don't love America. I'm not surprised.

    I agree with the part that he was a politician first. If there is 1 thing a politician is good at it's lying to get votes. I don't believe anything a politician says no matter the party they come from.

    No, we Texans just believe in Character and Integrity, and if you want to get personal you should do it in person.

    Texas did not screw up this Country. The "first black president " did. Actually I blame his white half, you know so you know I'm cool.

    Texas is one of the last bastions of liberty and self reliance. It's why people come here. Because those principles are typically Conservative principles and Conservative principles drive a private sector economy.

    So, you love Texas more than America. I get it.

    You know, thats a good question. I'm a patriot sure, my oldest is in the Navy.

    I love my Country but I'm not the one who voted in ideologue who's agenda seems to be economic anihilation.

    Texas is home. My lineage goes back 5 generations and I even have Texas Native American lineage on my Mothers side.

    Hell a few days out in the sun and I'm blacker than BO.

    So if I HAD to chose I would chose Texas.
