If they were such "racists" that folks needed to engage in armed conflict with to end their "racism" then why were there any free blacks?
Are you aware that there were only 14 THOUSAND slave owners in North Carolina in 1861 and 10 THOUSAND Free Black men?
By the way, to add to my response to your first line, ever hear of Eminent Domain?

My comment was in reply to the farce of "the South wasn't looking for a fight." They didn't want a fight, so they moved their cannons into a position where they could fire on Ft. Sumter....it just doesn't follow logically. Even if they were moving into a position where they could defend themselves, they obviously saw that a fight would be necessary.
