I don't understand the point of the article.
There appear to be several people on this forum whose reading comprehension is at a low level.
I'll write a short paragraph on the origin of slavery which comes to the inevitable conclusion that slavery was preferable to torture, mutilation, and death, the fate of enemies before slavery was invented-- and RL will tell us that I support slavery.
Or I'll post statistics about the breakdown in violent crime by race or that Asians have the best educational outcomes-- and RL will tell us that I am a white supremist.
Well from what I read you certainly did seem to give a damn about it, citing Taki's with that joke about the "save the apes" benefactor.
It's not about what you like or what I like . It's about fairness, respect and truthfulness. Perhaps you don't want to hear that.
What you said, you like sculptures, among those of people who enabled oppression and lynching. I like to see the ones who were oppressed and lynched documented and brought to the public eye as if it were a sculpture sitting in a town square. After all, when this history is squelched, at some point it will necessarily be exposed. 150 years is a long time.
Impressive debut post!
No need to insult me.
Awe, come on. Being smarter amd more intelectual than everybody else is part of his stchick...lol.
He's the Philosopher King.
He even calls himself a Pythagorean in his profile, which annoys me to no end, since that's MY stchick.
Thank you, and it's my pleasure !
Who does not know about lynching? Most progressives and African-Americans know little else about U.S. history. Tests and polls have revealed time after time that most young people (anyone under age 40) do not even know what century the Civil War was fought. But they know about lynching (or at least they think they do).
I can't remember whether you said you paid to view the exhibits at the Lynching Museum, but I can tell you as an absolute fact, I have never paid a nickel to view a statue of a Confederate war hero or indeed any of the many other people whom the Black Lies Matter crowd claim is offensive to their sight.
Nor have I advocated burning the Lynching Museum down.
