Here is a hint... my purpose wasn't to give an entire ****ing history lesson, it was to show where the mental state of racist southerners STARTED.
Clearly, you are just here to be "hating on the south".... so I'll leave you to your ignorant ass assumptions.
And I love the South, it's my home, and I've lived here my entire life. And because I love this area and the vast majority of its people I can't wait for this relic of a shameful history to be buried forever except in the same venues that display "whites only" signs - museums and the like. Defending the Rebel flag is, IMO, defending what it stood for when the SC LEGISLATURE raised it on their capital, which is for second class treatment of black citizens. No matter what an individual white person thinks when he flies the Rebel flag, the rest of the world can't distinguish him from a closet KKKer, and I can't either.
Our new Government is founded upon exactly the opposite ideas; its foundations are laid, its cornerstone rests, upon the great truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery, subordination to the superior race, is his natural and normal condition
Unless my history is off... which im sure in this case its not..... The topic you are angry at me for not mentioning happened decades later...
But.. you know... I could be wrong.
