Our post Civil War years weren't all "kumbayahs" and happy days.
It was bloody, evil, and is still being fought today from the backwater hollers down south all the way up to Grandpa Diaper in the White House.
The south only seceded because of slavery. Without human chattel, they had no industry, economy, or any means to utilize the land.
That's where we got segregation, Jim Crow, poll taxes, and the Tulsa massacre. It was ALL subjugation of a "lesser" race who didn't have the freedom to make their own voices heard.
It's a LONG, sordid, disgusting history that relatively few people even recognize exists today.
And as we all know just from the small sample size of abject idiots on this site that even if Trump loses, their proud ignorance and racism will live on.
I need a joint
P.S. And just because we don't wave them around like 5yr olds pretending to be Rambo, us liberals have plenty of guns too. ;-) (edited)
