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"..... :lmao:

'87, provide some proof.  back up what you believe.

".....
'87, you have no proof they would not be set free if the south had won.

I find it hilarious you conveniently 'forget' these transgressions by white folk in this country.

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.

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.

This short video gives a bit of the history of General Patrick Cleburne's proposal to arm and promise freedom to enslaved Africans/Blacks if they fought for the South.  It does not mention that he was labeled a traitor and, despite his outstanding generalship, never got another star while other less distinguished general officers did.  Cleburne was an immigrant and did not own slaves.

He was killed in the November 1864 Battle of Franklin (south of Nashville, Tennessee) and his body was laid out on the portico of the Carnton plantation house where my great grandmother Mariah was enslaved.

The late and much esteemed Hari Jones is featured with his low-keyed but powerful destruction of the myth of our Ancestors fighting in any significant way or number for the Confederacy.
