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

Cindy Lee Talisman,
You are mistaken about the history of the South and our country. The Civil War was the result of the Northern States and the Federal Government believing that it was morally wrong to be a Nation of slavery. The Southern States had financial vested interest in slavery as it was the source of cheap labor. There were many falsehoods and PR by Southern business men to convince the citizenry in the South that it was about Northern aggression and big government. “Big Government” is an euphemism for anarchists who want no government but survival of the fittest.

George Payne III
The Southern States agreed to the contents on the U.S. Constitution when it signed it and joined the Union. Because the Union determine that it was immoral and unjust to be a nation of slavery the South decided to break the agreement they signed when they joined the Union and then blame it on big government and Northern Aggression. George, stop living in the past and your ancestors lives and move on, live in the present and work to unite this Nation, USA, that your ancestors sought to put asunder. To do so does not dishonor your ancestors. But will actually honor them by righting a dreadful wrong, succeeding from the Union that they pledged to support when they joined the Union. Continuing to fight the Civil War will not unite our nation but will make us more vulnerable to foreign invaders. Let us not forget the past but learn from it and move on to make this a truly great nation where all people are accepted and respected for who they are. We are here to learn and grow.

Gordon,
What about all the deaths of Africans that were taken from their homes, put on ships to the Southern States where many died during the voyage and then were forced to be slaves for the remainder of their lives. More blacks and whites died to support the slavery business in the Southern States. Regardless of how white surpremists spin the slavery era, it does not change the facts that Southern States Slavery killed, murdered and rapped black people in the south. 150 years of Southern Slavery is a lot longer than the terror waged by the Nazis of Germany and in actuality resulted in more atrocities on blacks and whites in the South and North.
Germany does not glorify the Nazi era as you and other white surpremists are doing with the reliving of the Civil War. The succession was illegal. The South lost the Civil War, just accept the fact and stop forcing everyone to relive a dreadful past of U.S. history. Learn from the past do not relive it.
