how so? your claim states that the civil war was only about slavery, when in fact, it was about a complex network of socioeconomic and cultural issues.  it wasnt JUST SLAVERY, slavery was a major point as the south's economy was doomed to collapse, however there were still other issues at hand
i.e. the major one- the south believed they had a right to secession and they formed the confederacy.  slavery just happened to be an issue- it wasn't THE only issue.  

in the end, it was like every other war, it was about money. and the naacp is the same way- its all about money, who controls what and whos representing what, etc. emancipation proclamation was a good thing, however, now there are modern day slaves, slaves to affirmative action, slaves to quotas, etc.  

ok, first of all how did i miss the point?  i just MADE your point-

too many blacks in the NFL- according to affirmative action and equality, non athletes should be trained to compete and the league should potentially suffer just to make it "fair"

indians program computers, rednecks work construction, greeks own restaurants- its just the way of the world.

by the way, this is your logic, not mine!  im simply outlining "due process" as deemed by the "struggles"

you have manipulated facts to customize your argument.  furthermore, i went to a military college which happened to play a major part in the civil war and the confederacy is embraced as historical culture, southern culture, etc.  and we happen to not believe in slavery, either.  imagine that.

the confederate flag may have been flown by slave laborers in the 1800's, but that is not what it represents today.  just like the american flag/bible/whatever doesn't necessarily stand for hate groups who use it.
the point is, the south lost and conceded to defeat.  the south will rise again, however, in a much more diplomatic and civilized manner.  it may take a while, but it will happen.  to forget what took place so long ago would be to erase history, which is exactly what the naacp and other organizations refuse to do.  if we erase the confederate flag and everything about it, why dont we erase affirmative action, a constant reminder, a symbol if you will, of those harsh times.

anyways , just my thoughts

where do u get your information from? a cracker jacks box?  you are so ignorant to say the confederate flag is a jim crow symbol!
just because the flag flew at the time of jim crow or whatever doesnt mean the two correlate. 
the KKK flew the american flag, so maybe we shouldn't fly that either!

your logic is flawed and baseless. 

how could i not be serious?  MOST computer programmers are INDIAN but theres no outcry!
MOST fast runners are black!  Theres no outcry.

But when most lawyers are white, there is a problem??  It's called "finding what you are good at".  I am of Greek descent, european american, and im not a particularly fast athlete- should nfl teams HAVE to coddle me and train me because there is an underrepresented minority group of european americans in the NFL?? hell no!  why does it apply here?


i live in charleston and it is a tale of two cities if there ever was one.  downtown area is all rich whites living on the battery....but all poor blacks living on the east side and surrounding areas.  the school, while may be white, you will be surrounded in lots of charming, quaint poverty and will probably be mugged/raped/killed as i saw a dead body one afternoon jogging by america street. 

silent swirl
actually, by knowning italian and spanish, you already know portuguese- that is if u have at least half a brain in to which realize portuguese is an italian spanish duo.

it seems as though you are rather smart, so you already conquered the americas!  on the second hand, an exchange student i knew who spoke portuguese had no problem talking tothe exchange student from spain, so they could communicate, so spanish, french and english will indeed conquer the lands!

lets not blame the prisons, lets not blame society, lets blame the blacks, latinos or whites or WHOEVER


and jillybean said "in sports race doesnt matter because owners are just trying to get the "best" teams"

well, this should apply everywhere.  our country should have the best lawyers and dammnit, if blacks dont qualify, then there wont be any!    omg this is ridiculous! 
also, there are no black swimmers on the swim team- why? because none qualified!!! tell THAT to al sharpton!

Dear Adlai,

the confederate flag IS a time honored southern tradition...and as a matter of fact, there were proud confederate whites, blacks and jews...

so figure it out from there...

Dear Naturally,

Thanks for the responses, im going to read through them and make sure i understand clearly what you are trying to convey.  Through a quick glance i see you are a member of the NAACP.  I am not of african descent nor am i black, but i am a first generation from greek immigrant parents.  i by no means am comparing our races, just to let you know my background.

When i asked you why it was "ok" for the rappers to get away with those lyrics, i wasn't referring to YOU, but just the fact that no one (particularly al sharpton, etc) is raising a flag. there was a recent debate between al sharpton and sean hannity, you should check it out!

about the confederate flag- i live in the south- south carolina where the NAACP had held a "tourist ban", a few years back and its still going on now if i know my history because the confederate flag flew above our statehouse practically forever.

they, the NAACP, believes the flag is a symbol of racism and slavery an want it banished.  Of course they won their case but they are still upset about something, no one knows for sure what it is now though. 

anyways, we could go on forever, but i was just curious on your take of these issues, especially since you are member of NAACP it helps me, and just anyone in general!  let me know if im still unclear
and no im not racist, ignorant or anything!
thanks naturally!

oh, by the way, theres a song by lauren hill called "nappy head" and they (wyclef jean) calls lauren hill nappy head (or the other way around) and they are all cool with it....
