BC: Why was the South Condsidered Racist even til today? It is cleary true that the South was not racist in anyway Yes the South did have slavery and were intending to get rid of it of the start of The Confederate States of America. The North was also intending to get rid of slavery also but they were never going to make black people equal in there eyes . But the South was taken over by the North under Military Order and the South gave to there demands for the secession for States Rights. The Press then had everything in there hands to make the south look bad. The United States was brainwashed with these reports and until today the Southern Flag and the South are considered Racist. Based on actual quotes from Abraham Lincoln he is the real racist. The Memorial of Abraham Lincoln should be demolished to shreads because it is just like having a KKK monument and why Obama likes him I have no idea. He needs a History Lesson.
FC: The South was Racist NOT!! | James Gardner
1: I will say, then, that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races--that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which will ever forbid the two races living together in terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together, there must be the position of superior and inferior. I am as much as any other man in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race. Abraham Lincoln
3: Negro equality! Fudge! How long, in the government of a God, great enough to make and maintain this Universe, shall there continue knaves to vend, and fools to gulp, so low a piece of as this. Abraham Lincoln | It is better for us both, therefore, to be separated. ...I suppose one of the principal difficulties in the way of colonization is that the free colored man cannot see that his comfort would be advanced by it. You may believe you can live in Washington or elsewhere in the United States the remainder of your life, perhaps more so than in any foreign country, and hence you have come to the conclusion that you have nothing to do with the idea of going to a foreign country. This is (I speak in no unkind sense) an extremely selfish view of the case. Abraham Lincoln
5: So far from engaging in a war to perpetuate slavery, I am rejoiced that Slavery is abolished. I believe it will be greatly for the interest of the South. So fully am I satisfied of this that I would have cheerfully lost all that I have lost by the war, and have suffered all that I have suffered to have this object attained. ~Robert E Lee~
