but ... but .... but ... the entire Confederacy was based on the economics of slavery ... that wasn't a few "nut cases" .... it was the very fundamental reason for its existence!

Even Frederick Douglass acknowledges in his autobiography that slavery was an institution and that he saw many white men who were reluctant participants. They were born into the system and trapped by the economics of it. He had pitty for them as well as his fellow bondsmen.

There's a lot of dark history in the formation of every civilization on this planet. People focus too much on "revising" the past instead of using it to ensure the same mistakes don't happen again.

They must have forgot that we should learn from the past, live for the moment, and hope for a tomorrow (new beginning only we can create). Tomorrows are promised to NO ONE!

And many people with lighter skin, whose ancestors were nowhere in sight back in the days of slavery, are stuck smack in the middle of all of this. And ignorantly judged based on THEIR skin tone as well! A vicious circle with no end, as long as the ignorance grows on. If anything should be banned, it should be ignorance, along with so many uncountable other things. Above all, Politics/Government should be banned! Then MAYBE people can start over again, with a last chance to get it, and do things right for once. But will this happen? Not the way things are going these days!

I wonder what Susan B. Anthony, Frederick Douglass, Martin luther King Jr. And Mahatma Ghandi would think if they could hear people today carrying on about how oppresed thet are. Give me a break! It dishonors their memory to act as if humanity has not moved in the direction they sacrificed so much to guide us toward.

Exactly! Its a slap in the face to those who fought not only to get their people where they are today, but to get ALL they fought for that they have today! Over time, one of the main things they wanted out of all were Freedom. BUT ABOVE THAT... an Education. To simply BE. To LIVE among EVERYONE ELSE, AS the HUMAN BEINGS THEY TOO ARE! Now... if their ancestors could see how they're thanking them now. SMH

None of us are guilty for the sins of our fathers. Not whites, not blacks, not browns. It is a fallacy. Worry about your sins and leave me to mine. If we all did that, then the world would be a better place.

What about the African tribes that forcefully invaded and kidnapped people from neighboring tribes to sell into slavery? Maybe they should hold their own people accountable.

It was...we treat our natives like shit today and also back in the days of confederation. We don't pay respect to them and forced many of them onto a life of alcoholism. Because us whites are a majority...there is very little to no discrimination of our kind from another majority. If races can't respect each other, then our country will eventually fall apart

Do you live near an Indian reservation? Many American Indians choose not to assimilate and move off the rez. Even Geronimo eventually saw that the "white man" offered a better way of life and even converted to Christianity.

"If races can't respect each other, then our country will eventually fall apart" Very true! But one nationality cannot be blamed for what another chose (decided) to do (e.g. alcoholism). That is a choice. Not something one is forced in to. Also, the white people are no longer a majority.

You do know that whites are only 40% right, that's the most of one race there is BUT IT'S NOT A F**KING MAJORITY

TD;LR Learn to math

40% is a majority because the world is made up of many races...black, Cacation, Asian, Indian, Hispanic, Latino, native etc etc etc...factoring those in, the USA's majority level would be 12.5% 40% is much larger than 12.5...plus, that does not include the fact that 40% is the world's percentage...for the USA itself...that is close to 75%...that looks like a majority to me...

'That is the most of one race' I already said that. It's still not a majority.

Lamp, I respect many of your opinions, but you are wrong to suggest that the problems American Indians face today are the result of oppression 120 years ago. It is a cultural problem they face, that needs to be addressed by them. It is not the white man's fault that there are AI who are alcoholics. In fact, that is a stereotype. Poverty on the rez is the main issue. $600 dollars a month does little to solve the problem. If you are concerned you should look to other online resources than imgflip.

you completely missed the point! So its okay that lazy fat pieces of shit lazy ass mother f**kers can suck off my tax paying tit while I work my ASS to the bone? Is that what you're saying you stupid f**k?????
0 ups
no, I'm saying you shouldn't take for-granted the services that the government provides you. I'm pretty sure that tax dollars going to bail out the banks and pay for useless wars that were not justified appropriately is not better than spending some money supporting those that want to work, but are unable to due to family issues, mental illnesses, excessive expenses etc.

Privatization of essencial government services (VA, Healthcare, Roads, SS, utilities just to name a few) is not practical, but pretty stupid. It does work in Japan, however...companies will justifiably charge the same amount for per-say expressways, when that, in term is not fair. Japan has a higher minimum wage than the US, the freeways are the highest maintained in the world, and construction of these freeways (many of which are half bridge/tunnel) are of most expensive. If we privatized all freeways in the US per say, you could be paying on average of $1000 on tolls themselves every month.

Privatizing prisons doesn't work, as contracts are unfair, and conditions for inmates are horrible

Privatizing utilities is unrealistic, just look at Bolivia or Detroit

Just because you may not be an inmate, a freeway (or PT commuter for that matter) user, or on social security doesn't mean that you may be prone to have to use it later. I'll respect that you don't want to pay for lazy people...but you have to understand the consequences of changing the system to benefit only certain people in the Upper and Middle class (temporarily) is not logical, and can be unfair. You also can't assume that all of your tax dollars are going to benefit only "lazy fat pieces of shit lazy ass motherf**kers", when most of your tax dollars are spent on more absurd things. Plus, you may be in a situation where you will be on medicare or social security

Ok, I actually agree with those things the government does. I totally and 100% agree. What I hate is welfare. Food stamps and money goes to lazy people. Would you agree with me on that one?
0 ups
I do think that lazy people shouldn't be entitled to those items...but that doesn't mean that all of them are lazy...some are veterans...others can't hold a job due to medical issues or mental illnesses. some are in the street because are healthcare system is so f***ed up, that bills are unaffordable for many people. We can also believe that many have credentials (masters etc) but can't get a job because the market is decreasing.

I completely agree that lazy people have to contribute to the community in order to get a share of government services, but we can't always jump to conclusions that people on welfare are lazy

Geronimo's tribe was mostly slaughtered by the Mexican military. As a result, he went on the war path for most of his life. He killed nearly every non Indian, he encountered, along the way. They were savages and the U.S. military dealt with them mercilessly in turn. Both sides were guilty of atrocities. But there are few civilizations that don't share a similar history.

The Confederacy was started by certain groups of the South. Realistically, people should REALLY research history on a marked (exact, detailed), grand scale! before going off the hinges with their own opinions with no basis of facts. Ex: North vs. the South, Civil War, Underground Railroad, and the reasons WHY these important marks in history even happened!

It's because, you morons, the southern states thought they had the right to secede. They wanted to secede because the north was banning slavery, but they did not fight for slaves.
