you guys need provide some proof.
if what you claim is true why did blacks show up and were welcomed at confederate veterans reunions.
it must be hard to realize what you were taught and believed about the civil war was 100 percent wrong.
i don't think so Y. you can believe what you want and i will do the same. you know the Doobie Bros had a powerful message with their epic hit "what a fool believes".....
'87, provide some proof. back up what you believe.
I find it hilarious you conveniently 'forget' these transgressions by white folk in this country.
'87, you have no proof they would not be set free if the south had won.
When has white America ever shown the ability to absorb empathy and compassion? Is there a single example in the quadruple-century-old history of white people in North America that demonstrates this theory works? Has it ever happened?
When the native Americans taught European settlers how to farm, fish and eat, the settlers turned around and stole the indigenous people’s land. Even when the first nation people huddled on reservations and signed peace treaties, America slaughtered them for raising their voices, insisting on their rights or even dancing.
America had to fight its bloodiest war with itself to end slavery. It needed federal troops to integrate, but only after terrorists bombed churches, busted heads and set buses on fire. And contrary to popular belief, the civil rights movement was not nonviolent. Black people were nonviolent. White people have simply managed to whitewash the black blood from the Edmund Pettus Bridge, the 16th Street Baptist Church, and Medgar Evers’ driveway.
In fact, Martin Luther King Jr. promoted fighting hate with love. He offered the exact same “courageous empathy” as Booker proposed and might have explained the need to eliminate racism more eloquently than any man who ever walked on the planet. And what happened when King “extended grace” to America, as Booker suggests?
A racist put a bullet in his face.
https://www.theroot.com/apparently-white-people-need-grace-and-empathy-from-bl-1832571677 Like you y04185, white folk in America could care less for non-whites in this country. Also Google all the treaties the U.S. government broke with the Native Americans.
How you can say there is no proof the slaves wouldn't be granted their freedom is simply ridiculous. The whiteman's history is complete with his treachery and lying. You can't even be honest with us on Onnidan about your political leanings.
