    I might mention that Frank Baum, who wrote "The Wizard of OZ" once openly stated all Americans Indians should be killed.

    Back then, that wasn't 'racist' but a belief held by many.

    OH, and many American Indians thought the same thing of 'white' people.

    The woman is very smart and a smooth politician but it shouldn't have been to hard to figure out she would go belly up on Confederate issues, notice it didn't take long at all for her to bend under political correctness pressure.
    And I agree Confederates deserve respect and highest honor in their memory after all they put up one hell of a fight!

    We're excited! We're preparing to celebrate black history month here in Georgia starting next week. We always decorate and dress for the occasion. It's just our way of giving back to the community. [:D]

    Willie listen up I'll try again, You in a confederate unit them knowing you are 3% African and part native American would have received treatment no better than a black or an Indian, I'm an avid reader so knowing what I know about southern mentality of the time I can assure you that your very ancestors would roll on their graves if they could of course, knowing they have mixed blood descendants I bet they would treat me better than you knowing these facts.

    Cool,since you have no heritage,how can you come up with any logic about race?....And if your a native of Sicily, you have North African blood as well...The Moors settled southern Italy as well as Spain...I also read...and my Maternal GGGF was half Scott and Creek Indian....We have no problem with mixed races,but you seem too!...Through DNA , I found the North African lineage....and the Paternal side came from the Isle of Wight....Now tell me again how mixed races have problems in the south? And what book did you read this in?...I am curious how and Italian knows so much about the south?[:o)]

    You are spinning like Hilary, You said African mix in Tuscany so I asked you, Tuscany ?? don't you mean Sicily ?
    And I do have heritage like I told you DNA and family places me in northern Italy and Gascony my Grandma used to say Sicilians are not Italian go Figure!
    Any how the truth of the matter here is that you, all knowing the facts of your mixed blood in confederate south you would have been bull whip fodder that is if you was lucky. Oh and I suggest you go back and read my post from the start "THE NO SPIN ZONE IS HERE"
    I like the confederacy they had cojones to spare.[;)]

    Heck today is Go Texas day and March and April are special to Texas Republic history however no body really cares anymore if it's connected to White males with guns anymore.

    Even Obama say the Constitution really needs to be amended,that's more white guy's with guns! get the picture yet? This country is turning away from it's roots. Inter breeding has changed us believe it or not.

    I cant understand why you don't understand that I'm referring to general southern philosophy and social behavior before during and after the civil war, or you're spinning again?. Any how considering the argument I find it odd that someone of mixed racial decent would not understand it was not a good thing during that time as a historical fact.

The Klan is depicted as a cruel organization that was founded to kill and terrorize blacks.....but they killed and terrorized whites, mulattos etc. if they got out of line...Our history is here in the South , not New Jersey...we have * * in La. that are of mixed blood,but have been accepted as a culture...I could say you are a Gypsy , but I don't know your heritage,or even if you have one.....but we do...is it my fault there maybe be North African in my DNA? (most likely Barbary Coast)...no kinky hair like the Equatorial Africans.....We have a Heritage , some people don't...my wifes folks came over from Ireland in the 1830's...County Cork..

    pwillie, whether I am black or not would have nothing to do with the accuracy of my observation.

    That expresses, part and parcel, the very definition of racism.

    It has nothing to do with what I like, or not.

    And it does not matter what you like, or not, either.

    Thoughts stand by themselves, regardless of the person who expresses them.

    I have already discussed my dna in these forums, if you are that eaten up with it you can search and satisfy your morbid curiosity, but I simply won't pander to such ridiculous queries.

    Confederate Heritage as compared to Southern Heritage?

    The Confederate States of America was, in many ways, the last great effort for the realization of the original American Dream; and Government of, by, and for the people. (Sorry, Abe, your cynical claim to the contrary falls flat and emphasizes the great Constitutional tragedy that was the Civil War.

    That said, Confederate Heritage seems a bit silly. The heritage of the Confederacy is 5 years of strife in a noble, yet failed, effort for independance. It is a period worth noting and respecting for what it is, but I fail to see it as 'heritage'.

    Southern Heritage is a different matter, and it includes the complete tapestry, positive and negative, of the developement of a unique and immensely important part of the American experiance.

    Celebrate the Confederacy for the liberty movement that it was. Heritage, however, is much deeper than those five years.

    The Confederate States of America is and always be apart of my heritage....They are one in same...Would this post have been kicked to politics if it was only about being raised in the south by southerners?...Why doesn't the North have a heritage? After all they won the war. I don't ever see anything about the Great Freedom Fight , and never have heard a colored person say that they appreciate all the blood that poured from Northern veins to support their freedom....fast forward, all you will ever hear is about Dr. King and his freedom marches where blacks were beaten , thrown in jail! How many laid down their lives? Colored Troops? Yes at the beginning of the end of the war, Lincoln decided to use Colored Troops because of the heat he was catching for all the white troop deaths...Never see any celebrations about the Grand Armee of The Potomac...

    Confederate Heritage as compared to Southern Heritage?

    The Confederate States of America was, in many ways, the last great effort for the realization of the original American Dream; and Government of, by, and for the people. (Sorry, Abe, your cynical claim to the contrary falls flat and emphasizes the great Constitutional tragedy that was the Civil War.

    That said, Confederate Heritage seems a bit silly. The heritage of the Confederacy is 5 years of strife in a noble, yet failed, effort for independance. It is a period worth noting and respecting for what it is, but I fail to see it as 'heritage'.

    Southern Heritage is a different matter, and it includes the complete tapestry, positive and negative, of the developement of a unique and immensely important part of the American experiance.

    Celebrate the Confederacy for the liberty movement that it was. Heritage, however, is much deeper than those five years.


    The Confederate States of America is and always be apart of my heritage....They are one in same...Would this post have been kicked to politics if it was only about being raised in the south by southerners?...Why doesn't the North have a heritage? After all they won the war. I don't ever see anything about the Great Freedom Fight , and never have heard a colored person say that they appreciate all the blood that poured from Northern veins to support their freedom....fast forward, all you will ever hear is about Dr. King and his freedom marches where blacks were beaten , thrown in jail! How many laid down their lives? Colored Troops? Yes at the beginning of the end of the war, Lincoln decided to use Colored Troops because of the heat he was catching for all the white troop deaths...Never see any celebrations about the Grand Armee of The Potomac...


    The heritage of the North is the heritage that is the USA.

    The Declaration of Independence is a part of it.

    The Revolutionary War is a part of it.

    The Civil War, WW1, The Great Depression, WW2, landing on the moon, and on and on.

    There is no one event that creates a heritage, rather heritage is a sum of the totality of he events a people have experienced. You obviously missed where I stated what I believe was lost during the Civil War. It's OK, it was probably too much to expect anyway.

    There were celebrations of the Army of the Potomac for decades after the War. These men even invited their former enemies to participate. Many did. If you are interested in heritage, history is always a good place to start.
    Freedom and a submissive populace cannot co-exist.
