  •  I agree about the Civil War (12+ / 0-)

    The last time I listened to the short film at that battle of Lexington in Missouri it began with the lament of a white woman who experienced the battle and had lost the gentile society she knew.

    I went ballistic.  After it was over, I went to one of the people and said this HAS TO be balanced with what the real nature of that society she lamented really was: human beings were just property.

    I hate the Lost Cause shit, but this is slightly different.  Most of these people are voting against their own self-interest because of their unacknowledged racism.  "They (and we all know who they are) are getting free stuff."
