Hehe. I love being from Texas. Big hat and wheel gun make me happy. Also makes me chuckle because it shows you how radically Democrats flip-flop between " NO! DON'T DO THIS! IT'S RUINING OUR POWER MONOPOLY! " and then appealing to crowds whenever they're defeated in one way so that they can recoup power lost. Look at modern Democrats. Masters of media manipulation now. Great at building up monopolies over stupid children that don't look past surface things presented to them without context. Theeeeere's a reason a lot of people in the south don't like them unless they live in cities where they're bombarded with pro-Democrat propaganda and socially ostracized if they dare say " Hey. These people have lied about all the great things they promised us and they're also clearly trying to pit whites, blacks, native americans, asians - everyone against one another so we're too busy dealing with racial issues to look at how corrupt one of the major governing systems of America is. " - You get pummeled with people telling you to shut up and calling you racist even though you're tired of people fighting over races and ready for them to move on... it's brainwashing at this point.

The south was heavily democratic, the republican party was founded on freeing the slaves, the Democrats fought against the civil rights act, re-segregated government positions, screened a pro-KKK movie in the white house, had an ex-KKK member in the party and put innocent Americans in camps based on nationality. The sad unspoken truth is the democratic party loved and fought for slavery and still rely on a form of economic slavery to keep people voting for them to this day. Oh and the founders were very clear on the states power vs federal power, you just need to read the Constitution and history ;)
@NeverDoubtMe23 The parties switched in 1964, after you nominated for president someone who voted against the landmark Civil Rights Act that you still hate and want to repeal today. No one who supports the KKK or lynching voted for Obama, or Biden, or any other Democrat for a long, long, long time. All you Charlottesville losers voted for the other guy. Why be a cuKKK about it?

"Or does none of that count because the DNC did it?" You're extrapolating past events to the present, despite those events not correlating with current trends. "Keep justifying and defending a party..." While you conveniently ignore the fact that the people who did stuff like that (and continue doing stuff like that) now align with the modern GOP. Y'all forget Charlottesville and January 6? "voted against the civil rights act" Northern Dems overwhelmingly supported the bill, which was the reason it passed. After the Civil Rights era, the Dems focused more on their northern platform and stopped catering to the racist southerners, which the GOP fleeced into their ranks, and eventually led to the political realignment of the south to the GOP (the south didn't become less racist, the biggest change was which party catered to it).
@AA610 The same party that calls black people n words, votes against the civil rights act, had an ex-KKK member in their party and passed bills to target african-american males to keep them in jail ;) Or does none of that count because the DNC did it? Asking for a friend? PSSST, there are liberal confederate defenders and KKK members as well :) Again, ignoring my questions, ignoring all the examples I gave you and you are spewing talking points from the DNC, your professors and Jimmy Kimmel ;) Good try though my friend! Keep justifying and defending a party that hung black people, wanted to wipe them off the face of the earth, wanted slavery and voted against the civil rights act....totally doesn't make you look like a racist ;)

I have to say, people really hate on the Confederates these days but if it wasn't for them, who knows when slavery would have been abolished. By preemptively fighting to protect slavery, they inadvertently caused it to be abolished. So, let's give them a little credit.

@Bambino Nut "The africans were stolen by africans to sell them self's to europe?" Not themselves, obviously. Group A in Africa enslaved members of Group B and sold them to the Europeans. Thus, stolen away from their homes, because of the Europeans. "and even if that was the case, that justifies what?" I don't understand this question. It may help you to realize my initial comment was replying to the OP and not you.

They were stolen by Africans for Europeans, because the Europeans were buying. The fact that they didn't steal the slaves themselves doesn't mean they weren't stolen.

The main reason they didn't abolish slavery at the time was thinking it would tear the slaves apart and that it would have died eventually, before the cotton gin came along.

According to the people who founded the Confederacy, it was about slavery and white supremacy.
The rebels didn't mention "States rights" even once in their own declarations of secession, all of which are free online. Instead they cited "slave" and "slavery" a whopping 80 separate times, and openly declared "Our position is *thoroughly identified* with the institution of slavery -- the greatest material interest of the world."

This is such a pathetic and tired excuse, it was about slavery and the evidence is clear as day that slavery was a main factor for all the seceding states. Literally all the southern states mentioned slavery as a reason. The “state rights” they wanted was to own slaves

Some of this is incorrect, but I like it anyways. Slaves were not stolen, they were bought. Which is why they were considered legally to be property of those that paid for them. There are still paper work such as sale logs, and accounting books showing this. Democrats for some reason like to hide that fact, and instead use words like "stolen" or "taken" or "forced into slavery" which is incorrect. They were already slaves in Africa and were sold to the US by Africa people. Which again is why they were considered property and not seen as equals in the USA.

"Slaves were not stolen, they were bought." That's like saying meat doesn't require animals to die because you just buy it from the store. They weren't captured by Europeans, but they were captured FOR Europeans. And the only reason Europeans weren't doing it themselves is that there was no treatment for malaria at the time.

The thing is, there already were issues with federal vs state law, and those issues were already decided. Many Supreme Court cases plus the resolution to the Nullification crisis meant that it was already established for at least 30 years before the war kicked off that the federal government delegated powers to the states, but the federal government could overrule if necessary. Also, saying that the south seceding wasn’t about slavery is somewhat reductive and definitely not true, as the articles of secession of many of the individual states show that slavery was the issue at hand. Some went far enough to state that they were seceding “against the idea that blacks could be equal to whites”. *this is a paraphrase, not the wording*

I really like the content..one thing though I think should be said or elaborate on...we didnt just go to Africa and still ppl from there homes in the dead of night...there own friends and families sold them and created the trade...its not like it's the only time human slavery has happen...human slavery goes on in china to this vary day...I think black Americans should be proud in a sense that they were rejected by there own culture..but they were smart and savvy enough to survive and then thrive as americans ...specially the past 70 years they manage to gain freedom and become big parts of american culture and much more loved then they probably feel watching media...but yeah the way you framed it left it open like we went and store ppl out there beds...america was building it was willing to take help anywhere...and it's still never gonna be moral but greatly different then what we are told in modern culture ..interesting story america has
