Re: “In Hillsborough, an election wrapped in a Confederate flag

Comments like those from Cindy Lee Talisman really make my blood boil. For someone who claims to be a “history buff,” she is woefully misinformed when it comes to this nation’s past. Her assertion that “the Civil War was about so much more than slavery. Slavery just happens to be an offshoot that people have focused on” would be laughable were it not so disturbingly inaccurate. One need only read the Confederate States’ declarations of secession to correct this fallacy. And her opinion that slavery is “nothing compared to the Holocaust” not only serves to further whitewash a chapter in our country’s history that many Americans already refuse to examine thoroughly or acknowledge honestly, but it grossly disrespects and dishonors the millions of black lives that were lost as a result of the TransAtlantic Slave Trade and the American slave system. Perhaps it would behoove Ms.Talisman to put in a few more hours at the library in search of the truth before she lets such inane and willfully ignorant statements escape from her mouth.
