Re: “New Southern Baptist Convention Policy Not Racist Enough for North Carolina Sons of Confederate Veterans

Sadly, it is very obvious the author of the article attempting to rebut Mr. Stone is abjectly ignorant of history and simply penned a bigoted opinion based on his ignorance.
As for the comment posted by Mr. Klein, the question is not relevant to the conversation. The CSA was not fighting to preserve the right of one human being to own another human being. His apparent display of ignorance of the history of the time period in question leads me to believe he is one of those ill informed people who think slavery was isolated to the Southern States. He may want to do a little research. He will easily find that it was the New England States that sent the slave ships to Africa to trade rum and other goods to the Africans for the people they had enslaved. Those slaves were sold wherever there was a market, including northern and Southern States. After the first American Revolution, those New England owned slave ships sailed under the American flag.
