    Who said anything about silencing anyone? They can do what they want. I would die for their right to celebrate it. Along the same lines, I can call it what it is, Stupid racist garbage.

    Its not self-loathing at all. I just don't see any reason to celebrate being a Southern as opposed to simply being an American.

    Independence day has very little (if anything) to do with what happened to the Native Americans.

    But anyway, a celebratory event for the civil war (especially with the south as it's host) seems odd... but it's the south I suppose.

    Yes, it's odd, but celebrating getting your ass kicked happens all the time. Just look how Cortland Finnegan celebrated, after getting his ass completely kicked by Andre Johnson, during the Texans-Titans game last Sunday.

    People don't celebrate defeats. They mourn them. If they're celebrating it's something other than being defeated.

    my friends and I were self-captioning that since we couldn't hear what he was saying. Mine was "yeah I deserved that! You right, you right!".

    How is it racist? They are celebrating people who had the guts to try and stand on their own. To govern themselves. Even the people who are throwing these bashes have stated that slavery was an "abomination" as one guy said it in the article you posted in your OP. He just wants to honor those that stood up against what was believed to be an over reaching government. That is what the celebrations are about. Has nothing to do with slavery.

    Was slavery a part of the civil war? Yes it was. Does it have anything to do with these celebrations? Nope it doesn't.

    "He just wants to honor those that stood up against what was believed to be an over reaching government. That is what the celebrations are about."

    " He just wants to honor those that stood up against what was believed to be the freeing of the slaves. That is what the celebrations are about."

    Fixed.

    No more like color you stupid if you believe the civil war was fought solely because of slavery.
