Because history is history, I'll be fair and admit that the statues are overly glorified, but they are only being taken down because Democrats are having "hissy fits" over an openly Democrat, openly proslavery military general has been immortalized for all to see; it's a reminder of their lies and hypocrisies.

Because they've been taught by Democrats that Republicans are racists. That's like the Nazis teaching children that Jews caused all of Germany's problems.

But when they are convinced that the party that fought for their rights are the ones who enslaved them by the actual group that did so then they are uneducated. It's not condescending, it's not initializing, and it's not racist; it's honest. If a group of people robbed a bank and a group of good Samaritans stopped them then the robbers turned around and convinced the people who where mugged that the Bystanders who stopped them were the ones who pull the heist off and the actual thieves stopped them, would I be wrong for pointing out that they are lying? No, I didn't think so.

What IS racist are policies that consistently hurt Black communities introduced in cities like Chicago (Which has been Democrat for YEARS now, so you can't blame that on Republicans) just to then be blamed somehow, someway on Republicans, and really whites in general.

What IS infantilising is people demanding more government handouts and 'repermations', assuming that just because someone is black they can't actually EARN a decent living, and telling blacks to vote Democrat because otherwise daddy government can't help them.

And as for condescending? Well, If they would open a history book instead of a CNN homepage, they might learn a thing or two about what ACTUALLY happened to their ancestors.

Also:

1. Blacks in America know perfectly well what happened to their ancestors.
2. They also know well what problems their communities are experiencing, because they live there. The fact that Democrats haven't magically solved everything by now doesn't mean voting for them is brainwashing.
3. You telling them to "open a history book" is the textbook definition of a condescending attitude.

1.) Actually most Blacks still believe the myth perpetuated by Democrats that White Republicans hunted their ancestors like animals, herded them onto a boat and then enslaved and oppressed them for hundreds of years. Only ~23% know the reality that African tribes kidnapped and sold citizens from other tribes into the slavery of White Democrats (Or at least the people who would go on to found the democratic party)who would regularly and consistently abuse and deny their rights, only to have white Republican males fight and die for their rights consistently.

2.) Yes, they obviously know what problems are in their communities, but the point I was making is that they were doing fine before Democrats took over, then for the entirety of the Democrats control over those cities it became a hellhole, for a lack of a better term, that the Democrats who quiet frankly ruined their lives then blamed -once again- on white male republicans who haven't been in charge there for decades. The fact that they buy into it despite all evidence, is why they are "brainwashed".

3.) Telling someone to actually do research for themselves isn't condescending; it's actually empowering. If I simply told them what to think or say I would be no better than the Democrats I just called out, even though I'm speaking the 100% truth. To make a comparison, it's like if you have a test in school, and one group of kids just copies each others work and fails, then another group says "Hey, you need to do the research yourself, here's the Science textbook, go to chapter 5." Is HE condescending for wanting them to see for themselves? No. And it only SOUNDS that way to you because you reading this in text form, if you would actually hear me say it you would hear much more empathy and/or concern. (Everyone I know says I have a weird way of talking, and I type how I speak.)

1) That's not the claim he made, excusing anyone.

He’s still getting this totally wrong. Yes, there were black slavers in Africa. Because blacks lived in Africa!

But: they never would have had the massive market for slaves that they did, except for European activity: the discovery of the New World and the transatlantic slave trade.

The slave trade was evil. Blacks and whites both participated in it. Rounding up millions of black African bodies for chattel was racist any way you slice it, and blacks right down to the present day have a right to complain about it.

And yeah, Republicans and Democrats in the Civil War era bear very little relation to the modern parties other than the name.

True, but the Democratic party was founded in order to EXPAND slavery, and Republicans to end it. And saying "Not all Republicans opposed it." is half baked at best. You can't use obvious exceptions to justify your argument. And a vast majority DID want it ended, considering that's why the political party was founded in the first place.

Also, How many Major cities can you name that are ran by Republicans in the first place? Not many, Because most major cities (Even in places like Texas and Georgia) are ran by democrats, and have been for years. Although what few their are do actually do better than the Democratically ran ones.

Here's a link to the 50 biggest cities in America, just to prove my point of Democrats running most of them (34/50, or 68%):

The democrats were founded to expand slavery. They opposed the end of segregation. The supported Jim crow. They founded the KKK. They are the ones - and have been for the last several decades - running nearly every major city in the U.S; the places where Blacks have it the hardest. Face it: The most racist people in the world are White Democrats, and the play Black democrats like fiddles.

But they didn't. It doesn't and wouldn't make any since for the Republicans to willingly take the name of the group they have been trying to stop for over a hundred years. Also I didn't "prove" anything except for my point that you're wrong. Nice try though.
