    They don't embrace it. If your white and live in black neighborhood and do it then... I would just advise against it.

    No it wasn't. That's erroneous for two reasons: 1) There were free blacks living in the south and 2) there were also whites held in slavery.

    Ya'll need to do some research before making wild ass statements like that.

    No I don't. Don't tell me what I'm supposed to think. I left the plantation a long time ago!

    There is a difference between supporting the right of a state to secede and supporting the CSA. To take the issue of slavery out of it, there is currently a small secession movement in Vermont. Let's say that it grew to the point where Vermonters voted to leave the union. Would you oppose such a withdrawal?

    yes, one can support the hypothetical right of secession without supporting the CSA.

    however, such folks don't wave CSA flags.

    Cool. So you support the right of a state to secede? Do you think it's constitutional?
