Why you keep assuming things I don't know.
    You really don't have to continue running away from the question. We've got the answer. Anything you post now is just more evidence of the supremacist tendencies your granddaddy instilled in you.

    No. As of 1860 there were actually more free blacks in the south than in the north. Black Confederates had much more freedoms than those in the north. This war was not about slavery, It was about power & control for Lincoln who is the biggest racist of them all. Oh & he LOVED the Marxists.

    Here's 10 quotes from Lincoln..you decide if he's a hero...

    http://atlantablackstar.com/2015/05/...lack-people/3/

    "Lincoln was, indeed, a white supremacist. In his 1858 debate with Sen. Steven Douglas, Lincoln maintained, “And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race.”

    And this written by a Confederate on the horrendous way blacks were treated by Union soldiers...

    Just like every blue state today does their best to keep their black population in poverty to buy their votes.

    Interesting the outrage over what used to be considering the "progressive" programming of blacks today. Don't marry (or we'll take your check away), abort your children or use them as collateral for government programs.

    Re: Confederate Flag

    The states right's to keep slaves maybe? Also, the states that seceded, were engaged in a war against the United States Government. Fort Sumter anyone? They started the war because a man they deemed "hostile to slavery" was elected President.
