    Denial is such an ugly thing. I weep for you.

    The entire thing. Either that or you're regurgitating something you heard on Hannity.
    102 contacts between Trumpís team and Russia linked operatives, 28 meetings. None of these contacts were ever reported. Instead, the Trump team tried to cover up every single one of them.

    He was careful. Democrats have always been very fond of slavery and wouldn't want to paint it in a negative light. Republicans will continue to stand for freedom, as always.

    I found the same thing...

    By 1650, there were about 300 Africans living in Virginia, about 1% of an estimated 30,000 population of people of English and European ancestry. They were not slaves but worked as indentured laborers, as did the approximately 4000 white indentured servants[4] working out their loans for passage money to Virginia

    It's Gale King who was wrong to correct him.

    It is just this kind of "technicality" that becomes the genesis of tropes.

    Had outright slavery not ensued, two decades of actively pursuing Indentured servitude as a means of securing labor would mean something. Instead, it just greased the wheels for outright slavery and does not change the fact that many of the "indentured servants that were dropped off in Virginia were stolen from slave ships by English privateers raiding slave ships under license from the English Crown and dropping them in the Colonies. Ultimately, it simply encouraged and led to the Colonials addiction to Slave Labor and thus encouraged and promulgated Slavery itself.

    Another Southern Trope that covers virtually the entire Confederacy regards the Civil War: "The Civil War was fought over states rights".

    Ah-huh!
