Pennsylvania, Connecticut, New Jersey...all later (NJ not til 1865).

    As for slave history throughout the world...Come on dood...seriously? Is that your real response? It's just a meme?
    I am just trying to figure out wth your point is. So far it seems to be that you think you are the only one on the internet that knows how long slavery thrived in the US before we abolished it. That and you think that every nation on the planet at some time had slavery. Im not sure why you want to tell me these things. Are you feeling inspired or do you have a point?

    Apparently, it's the other way around these days. All the minority political lobby's got to do is stomp their little feet, and we're expected to bend over backwards to appease their easily bruised egos, regardless of what we happen to think on the matter.

    Many white southerners realize the Confederate Flag is a symbol of racial hatred for African Americans and are unwilling to adjust their attitude. They like things to stay the same. Unfortunately, the world is changing all around us, so quickly, that same sex marriages are becoming routine. It's about time we did the same thing with racism in the southern states which fly the Confederate Flag by digging our way out of a morass of lies and ignorance.

    Slavery was practiced throughout history, around the globe, and in virtually every race. Times changed. People changed. The South also would have changed. The north practiced slavery. They stopped primarily because it was no longer economically viable. Just because the north didnt want the south to have slaves didnt mean the north wanted freed slaves there.

    point? Everyones history has a bit of stink on it. Relax.

    What about today? Would you say the racism market is cornered in one region vs the other?

    Maybe we can bring the kind of peace and harmony to the south they enjoy in Baltimore, Chicago, Cincinnati, and other major cities.

    Is this supposed to somehow automagically justify the use of the confederate flag?

    And the north didn't abolish slavery because it wasn't economically viable. That's pure ignorance. They abolished slavery because (1) everyone knew free labor is exploitative (2) they were not economically dependent on it (it was 'easy' for them to change).
