What I find funny is that most people have a screwed up perspective on history. Slavery was practiced in at least four northern states plus DC. And... the emancipation proclamation only freed the slaves in the North... since Lincoln had no authority in the South. But... history ignores slavery in the north. They ignore that the KKK was started by a Democrat... that it was the Democratic South that had Slavery and the Republican President that abolished it. I just don't understand how people can ignore facts. And... get pissed when you tell them the facts. Oh well... those are usually the first to ignore the facts that get them killed as well... so I don't expect them to be a problem when SHTF.happy mlk day! watching a documentary right now on him, talks about the north being racist too. i was always shamed into believing it was just the south. even though the ugliness didnt belong to me. thanks dr king! heh its sad what we let people assign to us as a group simply where we were born. and to others the color they were born.
