    I'm a proud Southerner and I also love all races, I just hate that we are always viewed as "inbred" and "stupid". It's ok to be patriotic towards the south, the south is a beautiful place with nice people.

      It is accepted now that Lincoln was not a radical progressive. He was a moderate and center right who wanted to preserve the union but got pushed over to the left over the course of events. Just that the South was far right wing. So yes in the beginning he supported the Corwin Amendment but by the end of the Civil War, supported what became the Thirteenth Amendment, even going as far as to sign it. Don't tell half truths or things Lincoln did in the beginning, but ignore what happened later on.

    Almost every war has been created as a result of people trying to ether maintain or create power and wealth. The civil war was no Exception. The Civil War because of money and power, slavery was used as a way to justify the war.

    Why does this guy so the guns firing pew, pew while making fun of the southern people! Hmmm odd! I don’t agree with the destruction of historical monuments whatsoever. I’m sure this may anger some but that is how it goes! I’m sure these historic figures who have had statues for a long time did more than what their statues are being torn down for! We can all agree that was not a good time in this country’s history. Can we all admit it????????? So now we have done that! Can we move on????? I don’t mean to be cruel by any means but no one alive knows shit about what it was like, & they only way someone might have a clue about how they feel is because it’s written down! So no one knows! For those who complain how wrong i am! I invite you all to take a trIp, a mission trip to places in Africa! Places like Tanzania, these people have it tough! Understand I’m not saying slavery was cool! I’m saying I’m sick of people whining about how they feel when they see some damn decorations in a store that has cotton depicted in it and it makes them feel what struggles their ancestors had to go through!! And how this statue makes them feel, cause my great great grandma was a slave! So this country is going to fold because don’t want to hurt feelings, don’t want to say enough! Next thing you know we are gonna see a 12 yrs old transgender kid running around and all on the big TV shows, everybody saying look at this. Isn’t this special! Oh my it’s so courageous coming out like this!! But what do I know!!!

      The rebels seceded before Lincoln could even take office, much less impose "TAXES," LOLOL
      The rebels refused to allow blacks to even enlist as soldiers until a few days before the war ended. Only a handful signed up, and none saw combat.
      The Arkansas governor was open and honest about the Civil War -- "They believe slavery a sin, we do not, and there lies the trouble." The same is true today.

    Guess we better take down statues of the “traitors” that declared independence from Britain. Might as well take down any Abe Lincoln statues as well, he didn’t even want to abolish slavery, the only reason he later decided to was to preserve his glorious Union. Ain’t so glorious now though.

    "I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races from living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be a position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race.” Abraham Lincoln
    BTW Maryland, Missouri, Kentucky (Northern States) practiced slavery and continued the practice through out the war. And if slavery was such an issue as to going to war why was the last federal slavery legislation (abolition of the importation) 33 years prior - neither north or south addressed this issue on the national level in congress? Slavery is vile , but don't rewrite the facts, it became an issue when Lincoln was concerned that some European countries might take up with the south. BTW why do we never hear the history that the Arabs and Asian Indians took far more slaves out of Africa than the Dutch and other Europeans, and the Indian Reservations in America continued the practice of slavery (selling, breeding) for some 30 years AFTER the Civil War. I hate racism. I hate the thought of Slavery, and I hate revisionism. My son is 2 and I fear that by the time he is 12 the entire history of the world is going to be rewritten and he will never know the facts.

      omg I just googled you. you are a loser by the entire population of the internet's standards. I'm rarely on youtube or facebook or anywhere because I work for a living and could care less what an old college buddy ate for lunch. There are literally hundreds of negative articles about you , I should have just left it alone. Say what you want but it is refreshing that anyone who reads this thread already knows what a loser you are.

    • Dale Jones
      Dale Jones 28 days ago

      hey loser since we are in a public forum big mouth if I produce proof of the murder of my father will you apologize and go troll your own kind? And once again - I simply stated historical fact you offer nothing , not one shred of historical fact form that period. All you do is rant, and say offensive things. I kind of think you are that lady that was passing as a black woman until her parents let everyone know she was white. Sounds more like you get upset with people that aren't racists because they do not fit your narrative, What would be more honest is that you have racial issues, and you feel the way to incite anger is through racial rants, wake up it's 2019 and no one cares about you. Regardless of the fact that you have anger issues, that you are weak, and that you probably have lost custody of your children, if in fact you could father any, lets get back to the falsity you claim I made. In a public forum where we both show our true identities are you willing to make a bet of removing yourself from all social media if I produce the proof of my fathers murder? Either shut up and crawl back in your hole or put up. Everything I have said and posted is historically accurate , including the death of my father, you offer Nothing , did I say nothing, yes I meant nothing. You will not take the bet because like I said, you are weak, and because you probably are someone trying to act like someone else You bore me, see you at the next Farrakhan rally. Oh but I bet you think he is just all right. Unreal.

    The South fought for slavery. Only slavery. Every other issue you think they fought for, was only an issue because of slavery. There was no Northern conspiracy to establish federal dominion or anything to do with banks and railroads. Lincoln was an abolitionist but wanted to avoid a war. Neither he nor Ulysses Grant owned slaves. There were slaves in the border states, but none in the NORTH. The North hadn't imported any slaves for fifty years or more. The African slave trade only became a major industry because of European involvement. If you disagree with any of this, you probably hate Blacks.

      1) If you honor the Confederacy, you support it.
      2) Why do I care that they're American? Why does that make what they did right?
      3) SO, dedicating statues to people who fought for slavery will _discourage_ people from fighting for slavery?
      4) Civil Rights aren't stupid.
      5) None of the largely stupid things you listed necessitate building statues.

    I was hovering over the unsubscribe button, I still disagree some may have Faught for hash tag slavery but the majority were fighting because they feared for their families and loosing their home to be controlled by the tyrannical government as they seen it. Yes there were corrupt leaders but the North started this bull shit it's like me and you go buy weed with it being my idea but I snitch on you and get you arrested then walk away smoking my roach saying to my grand children you were riding dirty and tried to get me in trouble and your nothing more than a stoner bum who uses & lies to people since everyone shunned you and believe everything I say is because I ditched proof of your claims and amplified your flaws and create a very bad reputation for you now no one wants to be around you because they don't trust you, the North ordered the first batch of Nigerian the South just bought more of them, the north still had some slaves long after the war you bias bitches.

    Sorry friend, for covering a serious and for some reason still relevant topic, your comedic antics are grossly out of place and trivialize the thought process leading to secession.
    Also, last time I checked the Confederacy was constitutionally permitted to create their own country and "commit treason" therefore Lincoln and the Union unconstitutionally reabsorbed them. As we like to say these days, who is the u.s. to police another country that doesn't want their policing? Although it was definitely for the better that the country was reunited everybody was in the wrong for that war.

    Here's a fun fact African tribes sold their captured to the slave market. So what Robert E Lee said is true because African life back then was either kill or die. Like black on black crime is today. The good playing the victim quit thinking that the shity life you got the dates because of the system or because of the white man. You are the sum total of all of your decisions, the financial position that you are in. Is because of the decisions that you had made which gave or took away options that you could have for taken, but because of some piss poor decisions you have limited yourself.

    Any one ever TVclip search H.K. Edgerton slavery would have ended with or without the civil war 11 countries bought slaves from Africa from Africans who sold them. America did not go to Africa and abduct people either nobody hates other countries for it ...were all slaves treated poorly No some were that's a fact some were welcomed into the home and treated like family... Lincoln was for slavery and did not want to end it that is a fact ! Grant had slaves even after the war was over fact ... was slavery wrong of course it was but hate your African ancestors for selling you out ...plantations needed labor it was a solution to problem was it wrong yes But how long does one race have to pay for a mistake that happened nearing 175 years ago this man propogates bullshit to pad an angenda so with that being said I'm black I'm American and I don't expect people to kiss my ass because of slavery history has shown that the south was right I'm no African American I was born here I was raised here therefore I am American if anyone has any thing to say It should be the Native American Indians we owe them way more than we have ever owed any slave

    I guess there is some debate as to whether the US is a nation or the States are individual Nations and the US is an alliance of those nations. Webster's dictionary even partly defines state as a "politically organized group of people in a define territory that is sovereign." I can see how that could be applied to individual states, and how the original 13 colonies only joined an alliance because of the threat the British and others posed to a small state left on its own. From this perspective, the federal government existed to regulate the alliance and simplify commerce between the individual states, but not to impose its will upon the individual states outside the bill of rights. I do not share this perspective, but the people who do are not totally wrong about the principle of state sovereignty (although they were totally wrong about slavery). Although I see Confederate symbols and statues as misguided and racist (or at the very least segregationist), from the perspective of states being individual nations I can see why some of the people in the south would still choose to honor them. Geronimo and Crazy Heart are honored even though they fought against the US. Even if the South would have won the war (or just the right to maintain that practice in their borders) slavery would have had to be voluntarily abolished by the beginning of the 20th century. At some point, maintaining the practice of slavery would have hurt global trade as most the economic powers of Europe would have started to take a moral high ground and refused to trade with a slave owning people.
    I personally would not want those Confederate symbols displayed as a matter or honoring the past simply because they are just too closely tied to slavery (a practice that should be vilified the world over). I know there are people that are honored all over the world who fought against progress to maintain a romanticized way of life, like the rebel samurai in Japan who fought to maintain a rigorous and practically enslaving class system, women and children as collateral, and xenophobia of foreigners. That is Japan and they must deal with their dark past on their own, but here in the US we must deal with our own.
    So I guess the original debate still continues: Is the US 1 nations or an alliance of many nations?

      @RonPaulHatesBlacks well you sure don't hide your racism. You are targeting whites. I have agreed that Confederate symbols and statues needed to be taken down out of respect for their victims. All I did was question whether Lee & Co could be considered traitors if the US was not 1 nation but just an alliance of nations. I was NOT defending their beliefs on slavery and the black race. But celebrating Southern heritage is not about flags, statues, and ideology but also food, chilvary, and craftsmanship which did not belong solely to white Southerners. Neither does celebrating Octoberfest a promotion of German/Nazi superiority. Just because a white person doesn't cave into your demands, doesn't make them anti civil rights. You are grouping any white person who doesn't agree with you as racist. You refuse to let people remember the good (non slavery) aspects of their heritage without beating them over the head with the negatives, but you only focus on German Nazis and White Southerners and ignore the negatives of every other culture. You are berating them, trying to make them (and only them) feel a sense of perpetual shame, much like some tried to make blacks feel a sense of inferiority. You refuse to try and bridge the gap with compromise. You are as much as a problem to race relations in this country as the white supremacists are. You (not your race, religion, or political affiliation) are incapable of recognizing the hypocrisy of your condemnation or having a civilized discussion/debate without immediately assuming the other is a closeted racist. By your logic celebrating and enjoying New Orleans Mardi Gras, Coca-Cola, Texas & Memphis BBQ, ice tea, Kentucky bourbon, Mark Twain, country folk or blues music, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and all the art and architecture to come out of those southern states is to celebrate and push a white supremacist message. All of that is a part of Southern heritage, and you are indicating that they are all evil because they are tied to states where slavery was practiced over 150 years ago. Enjoy your feelings of perpetual victimhood and paranoid hatred. You are no longer worth my time.

    • Tim Meyer

      @RonPaulHatesBlacks at no point was I defending slavery or the Confederacy. I was pointing out to consider Confederate soldiers as traitors depends if you view the US as 1 nation or an alliance of many nations. Both views are right and wrong when you look at it objectively. I am looking at history from an academic perspective, not an emotional one.
      If other cultures can move past the historic crimes of their ancestors and still celebrate that heritage without shame why can't Southerners?
      I did not grow up in the south, and the majority of my ancestors did not come to this country until after the Civil War. Am I still allowed to celebrate my Austrian heritage even though they fought on the losing side of WWI and committed crimes during that war and some before?
      You need to let go of your hatred and realize that people who honor their heritage are not guilty of the crimes of their ancestors. If they are advocating a return to those times and conditions, then they are guilty of being assholes. But celebrating a heritage does not make them assholes anymore than someone celebrating their Samurai heritage anti-Christian, anti-foreign, and promoting nepotism and strict class structure.
      If you still think that anyone who celebrates their heritage is insensitive to the victims of that heritage, at least be fair and condemn all celebrations of cultures that committed similar crimes in their past. By focusing on the south and Germany, you appear to have an issue solely with white people, but the sins of the parents do not pass on to their children.
      Yes, there are white supremacists still around in the south are other parts of the world, but just because some people celebrate the same heritage as those supremacists does not mean they share the same beliefs. Maybe you're being a little too quick to judge those who choose to celebrate Southern architecture, chivalry, craftmanship, classic food dishes, and debutante balls. To condemn everything about southern heritage as evil is to classify these things evil as well.

      @Tim Meyer Of course you're defending slavery, the self-declared "cornerstone" of the entire confederacy. Now you've been reduced to the pathetic Whataboutism Fallacy. Is this really your best argument, boy? Confederate slavery was morally right and never should have ended because ... Rosemary's Baby and roman emperors? LOL!!! Your arguments get worse and worse with every post!!!

      The confederacy isn't a genetic condition. It was a short-lived political movement that ended more than 150 years ago. It doesn't represent Southern history or culture any more than the Nazis represent German history and culture. Supporting the confederacy instead of the generations of Southerners who bravely fought for the United States of America in WWI, WWII, Vietnam, and other conflicts is a CHOICE, made by angry racists and fake allies. You should be honest about what you truly are.

    • Tim Meyer
      Tim Meyer 3 months ago

      @RonPaulHatesBlacks I am NOT defending slavery AT ALL. But not everything in Southern history and culture was terrible and evil. People can choose to remember the good things about people. Are Bill Cosby's family, friends, and family not to remember the joy he brought because he is a convicted predator of women? Are we not allowed to enjoy Chinatown or Rosemary's Baby because Roman Polanski was convicted of statutory rape and fled justice? The months of July and August are named after Roman emperors who enslaved and commited attrocities upon the people of Britain, France, Germany, North Africa, and other parts around the Mediterrainian, yet we honor them every year by using their names in our calenders.
      Are the children of convicted murderers not allowed to remember the good times with their fathers and display photos of those men? You go back far enough, you will eventually find some ancestor who did something bad.
      I can understand your anger, but you seem to want a specific group to feel shame forever for crimes they had nothing to do with. You seem to want to control how people wish to remember THEIR heritage. But you are not applying the same standard to ALL culture's that practiced slavery or committed horrible crimes throughout history. You seem to be targeting a specific group and only that group while ignoring the same historical crimes of others.
      You wish to decide for them the prism in which they view the history. That is not getting them to remember the crimes, that is trying to punish them for the crimes of their ancestors.
      Just because the south had employed slavery, doesn't mean their entire culture was evil anymore than the Shogunate and Samurai's treatment of Christians and foreigners or the Vikings who raided raped pillaged and murdered. Are the people who celebrate those heritages guilty of the crimes of that heritage, and should be shamed forever for the crimes committed by those ancestors?
      You want to shame cultures for the crimes of their history that's fine, but at least be fair with who you apply that shame to. Because right now you seem to be targeting one specific ethnic group and of one specific nationality.

How can I say this you ask? Well I'm a retired Social Studies teacher and in my many years in education what I observed from the college level down was a push to brainwash kids to be good little Democrats. Oh by the way nice professionalism in your speech if I didn't already have better information than you presented I would have totally believed you with your hand gestures of gun shooting and the childish pew pew pew noise.

      @Mark Lumley The North was not as racist. Every true Union State peacefully and voluntarily abolished your beloved slavery years before the Civil War, and Maryland abolished your beloved slavery in 1864. As a wartime executive order, legally the EP could ONLY apply to states in rebellion. Freeing the few remaining slaves in the Border States required a constitutional amendment, which is why Lincoln passed and signed the 13th Amendment that you hate so much.

      RonPaulHatesBlacks wow what part of what I said lead you to think I taught anyone to hate black people? If that were true I would be telling them to hate my wife and daughter. Also where did you come up with the idea that I hate the US? I'm a proud Marine Corps Veteran and believe the US is a great country something I taught often and used immigration statistics to prove my point. The reason I didn't cite first hand documents was because I was making a comment towards another person's video as well as stating that using primary documents as a teaching tool is far better than using a text book which are biased towards the writers point of view. If you had been in my class you would have never heard any lesson that advocated hate towards any ethic group or to the country. In addition you would have been able to see multiple first hand documents and primary sources as I used them often. Maybe don't jump to conclusions so quick from a person's comment. Should I assume you're completely nuts based on your comment or that you can't interpret meaning from writing since you were so off from what I wrote? Some of what was said in the Cracked video was correct but some wasn't and the method of his comments were very juvenile as I pointed out. Do some real research about the civil war other than Wikipedia and you might be surprised how different things were based on how schools teach. Many in the north were just as racist as in the south in fact Maryland was a slave state as well as West Virginia (which split off from Virginia after Virginia left the Union choosing to stay with the Union but keeping slavery) this was made clear by the Emancipation Proclamation which only freed the slaves in the Rebel states not the Union states. So much more to learn than what schools usually teach. Research primary documents and you will see. Or be happily brainwashed your choice.

You want to censor, edit , and erase the past without once thinking about what it means historically or culturely.

While there are no statues of Hitler in Germany there are statues of Nazi soldiers, while places like Poland do still have statues of Hitler, for obvious reasons. Germany did in fact take down the statues of Hitler but that was pretty close to the end of the war and more of a fuck you to the Nazi's, quite like the Unions razing of Atlanta. We keep history around, both good and bad, for a reason. Your opion of I don't like it get rid of it is invalid, I don't like them, no one likes them except for racists. The fact that you fall back on what are you a child is pathetic. Lets not fall to petty insults in a debate. And yes a gleaming statue depicting the evil that once was so you can look at it and remember the awful times that were and thank your fucking lucky stars that you dont live in that era, or under those laws and customs. I can only assume you wouldn't be having this debate otherwise. Its no longer there to honor anyone, its there as a reminder of things that were among the change that has, albeit only slighty, happened. Now fuck off I'm done.

Im sure theres quite a few statues of Hitler and other Nazi's all around Europe, including those concentration camps turned muesems. Those statues are a teaching moment about the evils of our past, specifically the institution of evil and racism in our culture and our government. We don't get to pretend our government and people weren't vile racists. Not to mention those statues were built by people after the civil war who clung onto the racism of the past, not people of the modern day. Theres no statues that were built after the 70's. Its not like people are still putting them up. Its a blemish on American history and it deserves to be seen, hated, disgusted by, and turned into a teaching moment.

Lafayette, had Generals (Sherman and Sheridan) who did much by the way of modern war crimes, just to touch on the top of the ice burg. Slavery in much of America was a terrible thing and absolutely needed to be abolished. However killing 100s of thousand of Americans was not the way to do it. A good first step would simply have been not enforcing the fugitive slave act. Ridiculous that a salve had to make it to Canada to be free. Research how William Wilberforce got the whole started in the first place. We weren’t the only ones practicing slavery.

Are you in a hurry to return home to Tanzania or Uganda or Ethiopia where the birthrate for single women is in the 7.5 range, AIDS hoovers around 50% and where infant mortality is around 45 per 1000? As bad as blacks have it in America, yes, they are still immeasurably better off in America and anyone who tells you anything else is lying to you.
    Do we even need to mention the fact that, GULP, black kings were the ones who sold black slaves to whites? They sold debtors, political enemies and criminals as slaves. Yes, I'm sure you're just waiting to return home to Uganda because Los Angeles is just TOOOOOO racist for you. ROLLS EYES.
