  •  I think that.. (6+ / 0-)

    you can blame the compromise of 1876 for that. If reconstruction had been allowed to continue for a few decades, it's doubtful the south would be what it is today. Certainly race relations would be better.

    •  How long should we have trained the south? (0+ / 0-)

      It's not as if the southern planters actually worked themselves before their slaves were freed. They've had years to retrain and still they're poorer, slow minded, hateful people who need to feel they're better than anyone not as "white" as they assume they are. The fact is, everyone has some black in them and we all came from Africa once..only they deny this along with their denial of historic facts about anything relevant..This Tea Party would gut help for the poor but back then, they suddenly were the poor, post war. They still blame black people for this and (amazingly) claim, "They were responsible for freeing the slaves"???? lol..They're too pathetic not to laugh at. Do these people even know what the Gettysburg address was about..maybe they should ask their resident expert, Mrs Bachman? lol
