    You're just wrong on that. It's clear for any unbiased eye to see.

    Oh, btw, it's not about what he heard. He may have closed his ears with his mind. It's about the reality if the time.

    You are wrong.
    Pre- is the time being asked about. Nothing more.

    He was speaking of his personal experience of that time. He made no comparison.

    Your assertions are nothing more than the product of biased convoluted thoughts.

    Wrong. He made no comparison. He answered a question of a specific time. Nothing more.

    'Duck Dynasty' Star Phil Robertson Claims Black People Were 'Happy' Pre-Civil Rights

    'Duck Dynasty' Star Phil Robertson Claims Black People Were 'Happy' Pre-Civil Rights'

    “I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person," Robertson is quoted in GQ. "Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I’m with the blacks, because we’re white trash. We’re going across the field.... They’re singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, ‘I tell you what: These doggone white people’—not a word!... Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues.”

    Before the civil rights movement of the 1950s, Jim Crow laws enforced a system of subjugating African-Americans in the South by upholding racial barriers for years after the Emancipation Proclamation. The cultural climate in the Southern states was one of "disenfranchisement, segregation and various forms of oppression, including race-inspired violence," History.com notes.
    ~~~SNIP~~~~

    The Human Rights Campaign and the NAACP wrote a joint letter to the president of A&E, expressing deep concern over Robertson's remarks:

    We want to be clear why Phil Robertson’s remarks are not just dangerous but also inaccurate. Mr. Robertson claims that, from what he saw, African Americans were happier under Jim Crow. What he didn’t see were lynching and beatings of black men and women for attempting to vote or simply walking down the street. And his offensive claims about gay people fly in the face of science. In fact, it’s important to note that every single leading medical organization in the country has said that there is absolutely nothing wrong with being [lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender] -- it’s not a choice, and to suggest otherwise is dangerous.

    The more I read that part, the more I think Phil was mocking Magary.

    Which felt with a time period. He added pre-welfare, which is before now, which is in all ways a comparison. You are factually incorrect.

    It's quite nice to be in synch with the majority. Too bad so few people understand how fortunate they are.
    First of all I don't have a book and what you posted has nothing to do with what I posted.

    I was talking about you purposely not understanding what Phil Robertson said, but rather what you think he said.

    There seems to be a huge gap there, but you don't want to see it. That is your choice.

    He was 8 years old. How much does an 8 year old understand over and beyond what he sees.

    How can you say he is wrong about the blues when you don't know what he was talking about?

    The NAACP is right, he didn't see those things, so how could his comments be dangerous to anybody?

    I think the NAACP are jealous that GLAAD is getting all the whiney press and they want some.
