Southern values revived
How a brutal strain of conservative American aristocrats have come to rule AmericaUntil I saw this:
NRA board member Nugent: America might be better had South won the Civil War
My husband always says we lost the Civil War....
Update 7/8: Marceelina found a link: Racism Against White People by Ta-Nehisi Coates:
In that environment, the idea of race had to be really important--indeed the future of your country hinged on it. With that said, what I like about this article is it, again, points out the stupidity of using race as a broad classification to reveal abstract, and ill-defined, characteristics. Moreover, it shows that the idea of race in American life has never been a rock, but clay fashioned as the racists of every generation need it to be.Here's a question for future study--Is there any relation between the mass casualties in the Civil War and this idea of ethnicity and "race" among white people?
