    It was hyperbole, used to point out the racism of others.

    Racism against white folks is racism, too.

    "hick", is not a racist term..if it is used to as part of criticism of one's racist beliefs.

    there is nothing wrong with calling poor white racist people, "hicks".

    He didn't condemn it's use, because it wasn't applied to an entire culture of people.

    You just admitted that calling Southerners rednecks, was because you don't like the way they think. That's racism, my friend.

    I guess that's the reason slavery was abolished in the Constitution. Oh, wait...

    I already addressed this; however, truth avoidance seems to be one of your primary MO's. Answer: The USA certainly was not formed with the "political desire" to abolish slavery either, as the majority of the Revolutionary Fathers and Founders were slave-owners themselves. Also, Constitutional statehood/nationhood WAS NOT contingent upon the abolishment of slavery.

    Finally, the cotton, tobacco, and sugar cane, industries of the South made up a huge percentage of the exports and revenue for our fledgling nation.............oh, and the Founders knew that production of these goods was dependent upon slave labor at the time.

    BTW, you gonna ever answer the question of whether or not displaying the Stars and Stripes should be banned as well. After all, it proudly flew over the "Peculiar Institution" for much longer than the Confederate flag did?

    lesson of the day, free from me.

    it's bad to utilize terms such as redneck, hick, nigger, etc .... it's bad to condone and or support such term utilization.

    class adjourned.
    your welcome.

    the USA was nor formed mostly out of a desire to preserve slavery.

    the CSA, was formed out of a desire to preserve slavery.

    I have seen gross ignorance in spades on this site. One poster claimed he would offer proof that all eleven confederate states held state wide votes on secession along with an additional three border states as well. he could only come up with a tiny three and was left looking rather foolish. Same poster offered the lunatic ranting of some convicted killer in prison for first degree murder that was published on Aryan and white supremacy sites because even wikipedia would not let the crap pollute their site.

    Now that is ignorance supreme.
