Not you, specifically, general you.

I don't find them offensive. But, I am not an African American, whose ancestors were forced to come here as slaves and then bought and sold as property. I don't see them as symbols of oppression or of "white pride" or superiority. I see them as part of the history of the area and state in which I live.

I don't the symbols to be appropriated by the bigoted and hatefilled Nazis, and I think we need to be sensitive to the feelings of a good portion of our minority people, who do find these symbols painful. So, if city and state legislatures vote to take them down, I guess that's that.

Buy, I have never been one for getting rid of symbols and memorials, especially in places where the battles actually took place. If we must, then let's put them in museums. Good or bad, this happened.

As you can see by this photo the KKK were all Christians, no atheists, no Jews, no Muslims, no agnostics.

This is how the slaves came to America...in chains.  Can you image this being done to one of your ancestors?

Lyndon (LyndonH1) said...

No. Davis (and his fellows) escaped charges of treason largely on account of Lincoln's beneficence and desire to move on. The Lincoln and succeeding administrations felt that treason charges would have only impaired efforts to restore the country. 

So ... what changed?

Hey Pepe, did you notice a bunch of those Nazis in Charlottesville were wearing Pepe t-shirts and Pepe patches? You must have been so proud, you little coward bitch.

But they are and that was their intent. They wanted to erase what the South was fighting for. Make their cause seem more noble than it was.

I get a warning for posting a pic? WTF??? You said no one was allowed to claim another person was a Nazi, yet another poster calls everyone a Nazi. Let's face it Polter the rules for the cons are out the window in this forum. You just don't have the balls to own up to it.
