Slavery was bad children, M'Kay. Segregation was bad to M'Kay
"I don't think we should name a school after Adolf Hitler (search)," said school board member Debra Robinson, who is black. "It's really at that level with Jeff Davis. I don't think we should name schools for anybody that represents intolerance or straight-up hatred."
Ok.. While Ole Jeff Davis was the man for the system of slavery he was negotiating an end to the system for the same reason it ended quicker up north -need of man power-. Yep in the south they realized more soldiers, and more production of products needed for the war effort would happen if more slaves got freed.
I also don't want to go into how rare slavery was amongst southerners as a whole, and how rare it was for a man to own more then two slaves. Because some people have lost perspective. if the N-Word can now be said openly, this is just silly.
Now.. in other related stupidity
"They gave us the treatment for the movie and talked about a marketing deal, but we said we can't participate if you keep the Confederate flag," Jason Vines, Chrysler Group vice president of communications, told Inside Line. "It's offensive to a lot of people. But they [Warner Bros.] said 'no.' We still get a mention of the Charger in the movie, but we couldn't do anything beyond that."
Chysler wanted to remove the confederate battle flag -not the national confederate flag- from the General Lee a car that was named... after a confederate general who was an Abolitionist ... yes and we all know how well Chrysler is doing in the sales and buisness aspect.
So remember leftists making inaccurate comparisons to adolph hitler is fine, leftists busting out the N-bomb no problem.. but show a confederate flag and you're in trouble.... until radical leftists decide to use it
