    Oh and FYI that individual freedom was back in the 1700s now not so much.

    No, its true the majority of Northerners did not like blacks because they brought unwanted attention to them by the federal government.

    That would be because most conservatives do not study or attend university.

    Yes, did you say yes? Yes America and Britain are responsible for planting the abolitionist seed throughout the world. MAn I love this country and how it has stood for human rights. And today we continue to fight for human rights of the oppressed peoples of evil Islamic countries such as Iraq and Afghanistan. Don't it make you feel proud to be an American?

    I honestly think building the mosque there is arrogant and very disrespectful. However, there is nothing illegal with it.

    The wonder to me is that most of them don't.
    They're better, more forgiving, more tolerant people than me.
    Trust me there are just as many Muslim bigots as their are American bigots. And what is America? Is it a nation or a continent?
    Same thing about blacks. If I were black, I'd hate whites.
    I'm outraged and appalled on their behalf every time I think about the past, about slavery, about Jim Crow, generational poverty, white privilege, systematic racism, the current state of our penal system. Every time I read a thread about how they ought to just buck up and try harder and stop idolizing criminals and being whiners and crybabies and lazy crackheads, and then maybe they'd have it as good as white people.
    If I were black, I'd hate whites. I hate them anyway, half the time, on behalf of blacks. It embarrasses me to be white a lot of the time.
    Yet almost no blacks hate whites or wish them ill.
    They too are better and more tolerant people than me.

    But you know what, Goshin?
    For all my silliness and flaws, I'm still a better and more tolerant person than you.
    I hate blacks and you know why? Because I didn't oppress them and the ones who are younger than 40 have not been oppressed. And they are walking around like they deserve reparation. For what? Poverty will continue because it is a thing of life. Even the ones who are poor can manage to get out of poverty by talking right, smiling, working right, it is possible. But too many black people make the excuse that they are being discriminated by against and they forget that everyone gets discriminated against.

    Independent States within the Union abolished slavery long before the civil war. Slavery in the U.S. was a more short lived event than in any other country on the planet even if you count from the time of the ratification of the Constitution to the Emancipation Proclamation.

    I like this country trust me I have been to over 20 nations and there is none like this one. But honestly, we didn't abolish slavery till after the Civil War. And honestly, individual rights have been going down the drain for a long time now. And honestly, who cares what happens in a foreign nation unless it directly affects us which is why we are in AFghanistan?

    Actually individual liberty for all citizens has decidedly increased since the founding.
