Thanks for your response.The same White Racist who wanted to Deport Blacks, exterminate Native Americans and exclude the Chinese.
The American Colonization Society included members who were Abolitionists and slaveholders, prominent Southerners as well as Northerners. It was seen as a benevolent movement, a way to settle slaves in a more friendly environment where they could prosper as free human beings.
The argument that Southerners somehow did not actively participate in the efforts to "exterminate Native Americans and exclude the Chinese" ignores the facts.
