My point is that there are members on this site who are adamant about their hatred towards northerners and have no qualms about expressing it electronically. I find that strange to the point of consternation considering northern ingenuity, know-how and initiative built this country into a superpower, the west contributed some, but the south very little.I confess that the whole Black Confederate propaganda campaign on the part of the SCV has baffled me from the start. As you well know, the profoundly racist reasons given for secession is, in a modern context, impossible to justify. Any of the grand slaveholding masters would be arrested for serial sex abuse, incest & child molestation, today. Personally, I came to grips with my slaveholding family & the inevitable slave offspring that I am related to a long time ago. Learning about that has been a zillion times more interesting than torturing the historical record to support a made up proposition could ever be. What is really sad is that the SCV claims to be honoring Southern history by rewriting it to suit a modern sensibility. It is so futile & so limiting.
It appears, there's some jealousy that reaches the threshold of envy that has some of these people displacing their anger that's backed by old-fashioned jealousy. My point is that personal computers and the internet were invented by north and west coast people and this is the vehicle that are used to bash northerners. And that's just the tip of the iceberg, everything from technology, communication, transportation and everything else in modernity was initiated by the north. But they hate northerners, but use all the benefits that was provided by the north. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you.
They should denounce everything affiliated with the north, which would lead them back to serfdom. What exactly did the Confederacy leave them other than a legacy of abject poverty and a stigma that I wouldn't wish on a mangy dog? I just don't get that warped philosophy of life.
