    It is terribly sad that some here do not even understand the basic fundamentals of debate and how it works.

    Re: Confederate Flag

    I'm long used to rightwingers whining when they've been smacked down. BTW, horsegirl didn't even bother to react to my comment which gave her plenty of room to protest. She also declined to give us any specifics about all what her grandaddy taught her when requested. Then suggested we read "The South Was Right." If that aint white supremacy talkin' it aint talkin' at all. Grab a hanky.

    Here ya go...

    In 1860, during the presidential election, further discord between the pro-Union and pro-secession Democrats and successful Whig appeals to North Carolinians' patriotism deepened divisions in the state, thereby preventing any group from gaining enough power to enact their proposed platforms. The state thus did not act on the secession question until after the battle at Fort Sumter. Even then, Boyd asserts, North Carolina only grudgingly left the Union to avoid "fighting against the South" (p.177).
    The above is from that bastion of Liberalism and Progressive thinking, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I can give you some other links to other sources regarding North Carolina, or you can do some research on your own rather than just believing the revisionist history that all the south wanted, everyone in the south, was a pro-slavery hatemongering evil monster.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    I don't know if I've ever run across anyone so willing to be identified as a white supremacist on a forum before. The honesty is almost refreshing but it's chilling to be reminded that there are quite a few of these anachronisms still around.
    Except those of us who actually read are not White Supremacists but educated

    Like I said, most of my historical research is in heaven now. Sorry to burst some bubbles.

    I've heard that about England but never France. I won't even bother asking you for references since I know that's a dry hole.

    It's easier to hate and blame others than it is read and learn.
