Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
The Vice-President of the Confederacy said seccession was about white-supremacy and the natural state of black people, being enslaved.
Why do people deny the clear connection between the CSA and racism?
Everyone was racist back then.
One could even say that they were moreso racist in the north.....where they didn't see many blacks....and their children didn't grow up with them and call them Aunt and Uncle.

You've been taught to believe all of the vile and hateful forms of Slavery, yet never being taught any of the more predominant forms of slavery where they were considered as a part of the family. (Yes, I am acknowledging that they were still slaves... however I can actually look at things in historical perspective... can you?)
Fact is... people with only a general education on the matter don't have a clue what was really going on in the south unless you bother to take a better look into it all.
