    Care to answer the question?

    His post literally said the opposite so why don't you tell us all how you came to this conclusion.

    As a Southern Democrat you'd certainly be in a position to know.

    You would have to distinguish between inherent inferiority in their persons and inherent inferiority in their conditions. For example, you will get lots of folks speaking of the American Indians as savages, living rude, short, ignorant lives outside of civilization, etc; that is a cultural argument. It is not a racial one. Inherent, for example, in TR's belief that it was the White Man's responsibility to raise up the other peoples' of the Earth, is the assumption that they had the basic inherent qualities capable of supporting equivalent cultural and political achievements, and lacked the training, education, or structures to do so without help.

    This is about the founders. Not states. Did the US Constitution give same rights to blacks?

    So do you think this teacher shouldn't have handed out this pamphlet at school, or that Christians teachers should be allowed to hand out pamphlets as well?
