    Actually, I'd prefer they tell the world if they are planning on using that to try to deny anyone their product, so that everyone can make an informed decision on whether to buy from that bakery. I could care less if they hold those beliefs but still serve everyone without regard to things that are about a group the person/people belong to.

Had you been in the middle of it odds are your opinions would be rather different.
    Apparently you missed where I said: "But thats not how history happened" That was me saying that hindsight is 20/20 and what should have happened didnt. But it worked out anyways.

    FFS I never said the North was perfect. Hell I wasnt even talking to you, I was talking to a poster that is promoting revisionist history. She was trying to say that slaves were rarely treated bad. I dont know about you but when someone starts saying that slave owners treated their slaves good I think of that AS DEFENDING SLAVERY.

    But dont pretend that there were not people that were against enslaving black people at that time. Or that it would be impossible for people living then to see slavery for what it was, ****ed up.

    Re: Confederate Flag

    Let's face it folks, whatever historical meaning this flag has, it has been adopted by a certain class that leans towards intolerance and racist views. The swastika also had historical meaning, and indeed one that should not be forgotten, but it is banned in Europe, for the same reasons the Confederate flag should be banned in the US, or at least relegated to museums that will explain its historical meaning. Raising it over public buildings sends a regressive and dysfunctional signal to society.

    Look, it's pointless for you to keep trying to sell your myths, invented history and fake facts and to me (or anyone else who's actually learned the real story of slavery, lynchings, church burnings, rape, murder, repression, segregation and all the other outrages that white supremacists of your granddaddy's era practiced and got away with so long). This country is waking up again to just how much of that "heritage" still exists in this country (of course, the evil heart of it is still and always will be the south).

    You might want to learn the difference between something done on private property and a business run for the public before you put your next smiley face up.

    So you're pretending you know everything that happened before that video was taken?
