Confederate Flag at Heart of Why NAACP Is Upset at NCAA

Eric Adelson, Yahoo! News, March 19, 2015

South Carolina is hosting an NCAA tournament game for the first time in 13 years, and there are more than a few members of the NAACP who aren’t happy about it.

The Palmetto State is under an NCAA tournament ban because it flies the Confederate flag on the statehouse grounds. But the organization is allowing the SEC champion Gamecocks to host games this weekend because of a new format delegating home dates to top-16 seeds in March Madness.

So the home team gets to stay home even though the ban is still in effect.

“If they were really serious about supporting the cause of justice, there would be no loopholes,” said Lonnie Randolph, president of the state chapter of the NAACP.

Randolph said he accepts the NCAA’s decision, but he’s upset his group was not informed until it was made.

“I don’t agree with how they handled it,” Randolph said. “We didn’t have a chance to have a conversation with them about it.”

In an email to Yahoo Sports, NCAA spokesman Cameron Schuh explained the decision to allow the Gamecocks to host:

“With this format making it a non-predetermined NCAA championship, schools in South Carolina and Mississippi are now permitted to serve as hosts for those rounds of the championship. Under the previous format, schools in South Carolina and Mississippi were not permitted to host championship games in any round due to the NCAA confederate flag policy, which states that no predetermined NCAA championship site may take place in a state where the confederate flag has a prominent presence.”

Randolph is sensitive to the concern that the players themselves suffered because of the rule, and that has lessened his resentment to the shift in format. “This isn’t about punishing people,” he said.

Yet nothing could mitigate his resentment of the flag.

“What the confederacy stands for,” Randolph said, “is against everything America stands for.”

  • “What the confederacy stands for,” Randolph said, “is against everything America stands for.”

    I’m inclined to agree and disagree at the same time.

      As a proud son of Souf Krakalaka I say that the less baxketball we have, the less negroes we have, and I can deal with that.

      I wear the NAACP’s condemnation like a badge of pride.

      • Dale McNamee

        I wear the NAACP & other similar groups’ condemnation as a a badge of pride too…

        After all, I am judged by expert practitioners of the craft…

    • Awakened Saxon

      I’m inclined to agree, and consider it to be an endorsement of the Confederacy.

    • Petronius

      The Confederates stood for the unalienable rights of self-determination and Southern independence –– principles set forth in the Declaration of Independence that was so eloquently drafted by their grandfathers and great-grandfathers.

      But, as we see here, nothing generates so much Liberal venom as a display of the Confederate flag. The result of the Confederate defeat has been to make the South the public whipping boy to absolve the country from the shameful history, real or imagined, of slavery and racism. And so whenever the Ruling Elites want to make a statement on the subject, the Southern whipping boy is brought out and publicly flogged. After the flogging, the Southerner is then returned to his stool of everlasting repentance, where he recites the prescribed mantra of apologies for slavery and secessionist treason –– all while the Battle Hymn of the Republic plays softly in the background, and a smiling, fatherly portrait of Abe Lincoln looks on with stern but righteous approval.

      • All the more reason to enjoy flying a rebel flag without shame or apology. Nothing makes multicultists angrier than someone who is unapologetically proud to be Southern.

        • USofAntiWhite

          At this point being proud to be American or White makes them angry… and I love getting in their inferiority complex riddled brains expressing my pride!

        • anony

          The “Rebel Flag” has become a symbol of rebellion around the world. Bobby Lee would be proud.

      • mobilebay

        Wonder if I can get “Dixie” as my cell phone ring?

        • The Quadfather

          I’m sure you can. I had “When Johnny Comes Marching Home” on mine, until I replaced the phone.

        • Played on a banjo with no lyrics, that is one of my favorite pieces of music.

          • anony

            I love the lyrics too, but then I’m “Southern by the Grace of God.”

          • Petronius

            We call that tune “For Bales.”

      • I’ll upvote both you and Awakened Saxon, with a caveat.

        As someone who crossed over the event horizon into the NRx last year, I now have a more nuanced, still supportive but with an asterisk view of that series of events.

        If Dixie as the connotations of blood and soil ethnonationalism, a loosely related group of people destined to live in a certain place indefinitely, then Yee Haw. But if Dixie is just another rootless uninspiring “rights”-obsessed proposition nation democratic republic, then I’m looking away.

        The problem with Dixie the first time is that its two main central founding tenets were a labor-economic system (slavery) and a mode of distribution of power (states’ rights), both were basically overglorified opinions, and people change opinions as often as we hope they change their socks. Also, economic systems often become obsolete, by changing patters of trade, technology and commerce.

        The big super giant problem with most secessionist movements and mentalities in the United States today is that they don’t want to cure the disease, just cut away part of it and keeping part of it.

          It’s too bad old Hinton Helper was such an Asperger-awful writer and orator. He really loved the South and of course was almost 100% right but…

          Like Joe McCarthy. Reprehensible sod of a human being. Power drunk demagogue. Almost 100% right about Marxist/communist threat.

          My pops was from Missouri, got sucked soutward by a crazy redhead from the Palmetto state, home of arguably the nicest, smartest, politest, most volcanic, argumentative, and conniving old stock White folk in the “nation” (separate black/browns from Whites and pretty respectable average IQ actually). Rich, poor and in between.

          We started a war we couldn’t finish and were the home of the last recorded duel east of the Mississippi. I love my stupid, backward, inbred, redneck state.

          Well, just sitting here sippin mint julips, swattin flies and complainin about the negroes. Not a one in sight.

          • Petronius

            Holy Hinton Helper! You get my up-vote but, just between us girls, I can’t agree with that bit about “We started a war….”

          • propagandaoftruth

            Well, we did have the artillery party directed at an undermanned Ft. Sumter that got the Yankees rather riled and sent the message. The shindig was a blast and the entire city with the exception of the occupants of the harbor fortress had a grand old time.

            Four years later not so much. Hindsight 20/20. *Sigh*

        • Petronius

          Holy nuance! I hope nobody here subscribes to propositional nations or ideological nations. Certainly not dear old Petronius.

          Nor do I believe that the Confederates fought for the slave system, or that their cause even had to be seen in an ethical or moral light. They fought in defense of their home and kin; for most Southerners it was a matter of simple blood-and-soil patriotism. Patriotic sentiment did not need to disregard ethics, of course; soldiers like to believe that their cause is just. But it wasn’t necessary to their cause. It was sufficient that they didn’t want their homeland to be conquered and ruled by strangers.

          I am reminded of an incident from the American Civil War. A troop of Yankee cavalry swooped down upon a lone Confederate soldier, captured him, and demanded to know why he was fighting. The Confederate replied, “Because you’re here.”

          This was the simple patriotism of a man motivated by love of home, kin, and country. He was responding to nature’s first commandment, the territorial imperative.

          A more interesting question would have been to ask the Yankees why they were fighting? The answer Northerners always gave was “for the Union.” But that answer doesn’t stand up to scrutiny. The Union was just an idea, an abstraction.

          The North had accepted the Southern States into the Union in 1789, including Southern families, Southern society, Southern attitudes, customs, religions, beliefs, values, property, and institutions — including the peculiar institution. So what had changed since 1789?

          If those Northern troopers had answered “for the Union as an instrument to reform society according to Northern views of a virtuous society” — in other words, the Liberal view that it is a proper use of the Federal government to change society for ideological purposes, even to fundamentally transform society, even when that means the existing society must first be destroyed — then I think we are closer to the truth.

          But in either case the Northern war was driven by an ideological cause — as opposed to the Confederates’ simple blood-and-soil patriotism and rootedness in Dixie.

          I believe it was Melvin Bradford who said the North went to war like a giant industrial machine, whereas the South went to war like a gathering of Scottish clans. There is a scene in the movie “Gods and Generals” that illustrates this difference. Robert E. Lee turns to his adjutant Walter H. Taylor, and Lee reflects on Fredericksburg as the town “where I met my wife. That’s something the Yankees do not understand, will never understand. You see, these rivers, valleys, and streams, fields, even towns, they’re just markings on a map to those people in the War Office in Washington. To us, oh my goodness, they’re birth-places and burial grounds, they’re battlefields where our ancestors fought, and places where you and I learned to walk, to talk, to pray. Places where we made friendships, and, oh yes, fell in love, and are the incarnation of all our memories, Mr. Taylor, and all that we are — all that we are.” The scene is fictional, as far as I know, but the point of Southern rootedness is the proper one.

          How clean and natural is our old patriotism based on love of home and kin, rather than that which bases itself in abstractions of justice, virtue, human “rights,” or ideologies. Because when a people go to war for justice or for humanity or for God or righteousness or democracy, equality, or some such thing, they become insufferable, just like self-righteous, hectoring, Puritanical Yankees.

          And if your cause is the moral cause of God or humanity or social justice, then every enemy soldier and civilian becomes a Simon Legree, an infidel, and your war becomes a total war of annihilation, and as such it draws hatred, unspeakable evil, and the most awful destruction in its wake. This is the danger posed by all propositional nations and all ideological wars.

            Nor do I believe that the Confederates fought for the slave system

            I think an intelligent argument can be advanced that the South had every right to secede in 1860. They had joined the Union voluntarily, and nothing in the Constitution forbade them from leaving.

            But I simply have never found even remotely persuasive the argument that the South’s motivation was not founded in a defense of slavery.

            In other words, leave if you want, but don’t make up excuses for why you want to go. Own it, and be on your way.

          • propagandaoftruth

            Cause and correlation are rough enough in the hard sciences, much more so in the speculative sciences.

            Chicken begets egg, egg begets chicken, repeat process ad nauseum, evolve.

            I agree that “slavery” and the entire existential threat posed by the presence of a large group of very different, capacity-challenged others being maintained as chattel, in a state of existence at odds with the spirit of our ideological underpinnings as expressed in the constitution…

            Impacted and altered the nature and dynamics of the argument regarding the relationship of the constituent states to the federal whole.

            So, today how do we deal with the existential threat to our Folk and civilization posed by the presence amongst of a sizable population of very different, capacity-challenged alien others?

          • anony

            “I think an intelligent argument can be advanced that the South had every right to secede in 1860. ”

            Not just an intelligent argument but a Constitutional one as well; that is the reason that the North never brought Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederate States of America, to trial after capturing him and holding him for two years after the end of the war. They knew that they could not win against him in a trial since secession is and was legal.

            After all, consider the fact that the federal government is a creation of the States; The sovereign States created the federal government to execute the 19 enumerated powers that the States gave it and which are “enumerated” in the Constitution. The sovereign States never relinquished their sovereignty to the federal government.

            I’ve made several cogent arguments here refuting the notion that slavery was not the motivation for secession. Sorry that I didn’t repeat myself for a fifth or sixth time for your benefit. If you think you’ve got a point, I’m willing to hear it.

      So-called “Reconstruction” is alive and well in the Federal Courts, where states comprising the “Old South” receive greater scrutiny in the areas of school “desegregation,” redistricting, housing patterns, and just about every other complaint the nigros can generate…

  • Butthurt blacks. The good Lord sure must love them or he wouldn’t have made so many of them.

    The population of naggers are like children. Children know that if they whine and complain enough, they’ll get mommy and daddy to buy them a toy or a treat. Ditto blacks. They’re nothing but overgrown children. If there weren’t so disgusting and so dangerous, they would be amusing.

      Whites in the South did not abuse blacks. They treated them like unruly children.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            No: The 200,000 Whites murdered by blacks since the mid-1960s proves that far too many sociopaths and psychopaths survived.

            Sometimes eebil White folk lynched White rapists, robbers, murderers too.

            In fact, if lynching were an unofficial response to lawlessness in general, such as with the Regulators who patrolled the lawless backcountry prior to independence…

            Well, just look at the modern prison population or read a National Crime Victims report and consider how many more Negroes would hang even without racial bias.

            Whites were lynched too. Some by this thing of ours, de bad ol’ KKK… For all sorts of nefarinashunousness…

    The Stars and Stripes flew over plantations for 180 years, the Stars and Bars for 4.

    Guess which one is the symbol of hatred?

    • Awakened Saxon

      The US flag was adopted in 1777, so it could not possibly have flown over plantations for 180 years.

      • John Smith

        I think he means “80.”

      • JackKrak

        Yep, sorry, 80 years.

        Also, the Union Jack flew over plantations before that for, let’s say, almost another 100 years. Slavery has established in what LATER became the US (you know, the country that killed half a million of its own white men because of slavery).

        • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

          Yes people forget that many whites died to get rid of slavery.

          • Cheri Rodriguez

            They also forget that Cuba didn’t end slavery until 1886 and Brazil didn’t end slavery until 1888. Yet Brasilians and Cubans are seen as oppressed minorities while Northern Whites are somehow the bad guys.

          • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

            That is because Cubans are considered ‘Hispanics’ and Brazilians are considered ‘South Americans’ and so are minorities. I know a girl from Peru who I think is 100% white, because she looks like she came from Norway, and has a Northern European last name, but she considers herself to be and so is a minority.

          • HE2

            We have a close friend from Lima.
            She is of German stock, family long in Peru, where she was born. She speaks German, is blond, fair skinned, blue eyed, in short, looks German, even serves German food, but oddly, has a Latin first name.
            A lovely woman, she married a software magnate who is a partner of my ex-husbands in Silicon Valley.
            Many from those countries are not Hispanic, but N. Euro immigrants who over the generations have chosen not to intermarry, their Nordic/Teutonic genes kept intact.

          • Peruvian strongman Alberto Fujimori was an ethnic Japanese, who married another Japanese Peruvian. They gave their four children Japanese first names. Many immigrants to South America have refused to intermarry with the squat, brown beach balls. Who can really blame them?

          • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

            Good for them for not polluting their genepool, but the important question is does her loyalty lie with the Hispanics or with her European people?? Does she advocate illegal immigration and want Spanish to be the dominant language? If so, then she is not our ally, but a liability.

          • HE2

            Happy to report she is loyal Germanic Euro through and through, though family in Peru for several generations.

          • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

            Good. Hope her kids follow her example. I hope she has kids. If so how many?? Is her husband German Peruvian as well pure too??

          • HE2

            No, America, her husband is a member of a well known Philly industrial/banking family.
            He met her at university.
            They are lovely people.

          • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

            So no kids. That is sad. Sad that the pure germanic lineage ends there.

          • HE2

            No, I misunderstood your question.They have beautiful kids, and the cutest pug dog you have ever seen. [Not as cute as our resident Pugg, of course.]
            Both L and B are pure White Euro stock, no non White ethnicity in either.
            I thought that was your question.
            She just happened to be born and raised in Peru to parents descended from Germans who immigrated for business purposes.
            B., American born born in Philly.

          • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

            Oh good. So they have kids who can continue their German gene pool. Do you mind if I ask you how many kids they have? Also, I hope the kids have blond hair and blue eyes or at least brown hair and brown eyes.

          • HE2

            They have four. Three have their mother’s blond hair and blue/gray eyes, the other has his dad’s light brown hair and brown/green eyes.
            Similar to my brood. Only one has my brown eyes.

          • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

            Oh Good. I am glad that they have 4. Now I hope the mother is not like the one I know that always speaks Spanish and supports illegal alien rights. I wish they had more. Pure white people need to breed like crazy. How many boys and girls?
            So do you have 4, or are you also like some altruistic whites that have only one or 2 kids. Hope you have like 6. If so, how many boys and girls? Hope nobody in your family has degraded themselves and has mixed raced abominations.

          • HE2

            Have never heard the couple in question speak anything but English.
            L speaks German only with her parents.
            She has a slight German accent, but is as American as I am.
            As for me, click on my avatar.
            Yes, one relative brought shame upon us by marrying a Japanese man and producing a kid who looks more mestizo that Eurasian. That girl has been properly shunned. My family holds fast to tradition.

          • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

            Oh good. I am glad that thus family has pride in their race unlike the blonde Peruvian I know. I met her brother recently and he told me that she lives with her Mexican mestizo boyfriend. I was shocked that her parents allow that. Her brother too is tall and handsome and looks white, but he dates a somewhat negroid looking central American girl born in the US.

            I am so happy that you have 7 beautiful pure white kids. Are you Catholic? is that why you have 7 kids?

            I am surprised that your relative a girl married a jap man. Normally it is the white man that marries an oriental woman. Strange that the child should look like a mestizo. Normally a white and a Jap mixed child looks very nice looking. I would not blame the child because it did not do anything to be born. I guess better than marrying a negro person or a Muslim and producing mullato abominations.

            Do you live in the US or Canada??? Are you of German heritage??

          • HE2

            Based in the former USA.
            Raised Catholic, no longer practice, have a large brood to compensate for low White replacement rates, and because I love them.
            We still attend Christmas Midnight Mass as I want my children to
            experience the majesty and grandeur of the celebration.
            They, as I did, sit reverentially still throughout.
            Currently attend sittings at a Zen Meditation Center; the quietude and reflection are helpful “detoxing” from stressful years working inner city Trauma. As Michael, I still have nightmares and startle awakenings.
            About the little mestizo looking half-japanese. Probably that he is being raised in Hawaii and is deeply tanned year round, plus there is no trace of epicanthal fold. Have a Eurasian psychiatrist friend, with a tall, strapping Austrian mother, scrawny, five foot four Japanese father. Their son, my friend is six feet two and very good looking. He completely identifies with his Japanese heritage.
            My tribal heritage is completely Western Euro.

            My children’s father was born in Hamburg Germany, came to the U.S. for school. We met at Berkeley.
            Sorry about your family miscegenation. Very sad.

          • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

            I am glad that you were raised Catholic and so was I. I am happy that you are taking your kids to midnight mass on Christmas eve. Do you plan to have more kids???? Please do.
            Now I do not approve of this Zen Buddhist nonsense. Christianity is what made European culture and you are in a way being like a miscegenator by going after Zen Buddhism. So get rid of it and go back to Catholicism. Teach your kids about being proud to be white and also about their Catholic Heritage. This Zen Buddhism will only confuse them and make them mate with Asians or people of other races. teach them the good Catholicism when it used to support white interests, and not this multi culti Catholicism that the commies have made it out to be.
            How come you have a half Japanese half Euro friend?? I mean I would not discriminate, but I thought you did not like any mixed people. No wonder he completely identifies with his Japanese heritage, because he can be views as an oppressed minority and be given freebies. I he married to a white or non white??? I am surprised that his tall Austrian mother married a small Japanese man.
            Who is Michael??? Is he the half Japanese nephew of yours? I mean I would not hate him for being born, not his fault. Do his parents have more Eurasian kids??
            Good to see that you have good genes in your family and that you have kept it pure by marrying a German/Austrian man.
            Well I like your phrase, ‘Raised in the former USA’ Well it is true, but it is still the US. Sadly may not be for long. So do you homeschool your kids??? Do your siblings have many pure white kids as well. I bet your husband must be smart and intelligent and make a lot of money so that you have 7 kids. We need people like you and so encourage others to do the same as well. Hope you are not a democrat that voted for Obama.

            Whoa, America. We are going to catch it from the moderator for veering off topic. No more questions, please.
            Not exposing my children to Zen Buddhism, the sitting practice is five thirty in the morning every Saturday at the Zen Center, my children not involved. They are taught their RCC heritage, but truth to tell, I am chagrined about the leftist direction RCC’ism is headed. The current Pope is scarcely Christian, let alone Catholic.
            My half Japanese friend is more a medical colleague than friend, and occasional tennis doubles opponent at the country club. I should have spoken more clearly, and yes, he married a White woman.
            No worry about his needing freebies or AA set asides. He is a wealthy, successful psychiatrist.
            I have no idea why his mother and father race mixed. Never asked. Both have doctorate degrees and live back East. [Mother clinical psychologist, father, engineer.]
            The Michael I mentioned is our very own Michael Scott who posts on this board.
            Do not waste a moment concerning yourself if I vote Democratic or support the sociopath in chief, Obummer in any way, now or ever. Are you joking?

          • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

            Who cares, I like the fact that we have people like you on this website and in the US. Mod erator to hades with them.
            I am glad that you are not exposing your 7 kids to the abomination of Zen Buddhism. It is pagan and not compatible with Catholic teaching. So go to some retreat or some health club to detox. Not to this oriental pagan nonsense where these gurus are mostly charlatans who just want to grab your money. Even Yoga is a sin.
            I agree that the currect RCC church is more morderistic than what it used to be before Vatican-II. Vatican -II was started by modernists to sabotage the church. Read the prophesy of Bella Dodd and read how she helped many communits become priests. She repented later on.
            I too am a bit wary of this pope. He seems to do some good thing, but when he welcomes knee grows an muslims into Europe and also opens the doors of seminaries and convents that have been empty to house these knee grow and muslims parasites, then that should tell you that he is not all that there. He even stated that when he comes to the US in September, he plans to cross the border from Mexico to show solidarity with the illegals. We have Cardinals like Sean O’Malley of Boston that also supports illegal immigration. My own Bishop supports amnesty just to fill the church pews.
            Is your husband Catholic???I hope you still can bear more kids. We need more Catholics in the west.
            What is AA??? I was not talking about freebies like welfare and food stamps for your half breed Japanese friend, but I was talking about him claiming to be a minority just to show victim status. Does he have kids by his pure white wife??? At least he comes from intelligent stock. Wodnr what made his mother mate with a Japanese of all people. Could she not have found a German man. i guess better than mating with a kneee grow.
            Yeah I have seen Michael Scott comment on some stories. I cannot remember if he is for us or against us like John E is.
            Good that you are not an Obama supporter. I thought you being into Zen Buddhism would support Obama. I also have no faith in the Republican party. Filled with RINOS from McCain to Rubio to Paul Ryan. We are indeed seeing the doom of America.
            Now please stop that Zen Buddhism nonsense. Happy Easter. Encourage your kids to marry pure whites. I hope some of them are in their late teens. How many boys and girls if you do not mind me asking??? Maybe match some of them with that German Peruvian woman’s kids.

    States which fly the Confederate flag should never be allowed to host NCAA tournament games because the Confederate flag flew over states which allowed legal slavery. The same thing goes for states in the US which fly the stars and stripes. Slavery was legal in Mexico and Canada, so those places should have no basketball games either. The same thing goes for Africa, South America, Europe, and Asia. Antarctica is the best place to host NCAA tournament games in my opinion.

      • Slātlantican

        I will grant you that there was more to the South than slavery. But slavery was the heart of the cultural uniqueness of the South, as evidenced by the fact that it was fear that Lincoln would threaten slavery that brought the South to secession.

        • propagandaoftruth

          It’s rather nuanced. Whites down here understood the Negro much better than those living in place with sparse Negro infestation. Many of the Negroes the abolitionist knew, like the limo liberal of today, were not indicative of the character and capacity of the real Negro.
          Complicated by issues of pride, hatred, histrionics, and messianism on both sides, there came a point of no return for all involved.
          Yes, we Southerners had an inkling of the consequences of the prescription offered by radical proto-progressives up North regarding the Negro issue and such was integral to the broader issue of states’ rights verses federal power.
          Would the North have been so worried about slavery if the solution had involved the federal gubbamint buying all the slaves, moving hem up North and freeing them?
          HAR HAR HAR HARDY HAR HAR!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • Sloppo

          The South paid more in taxes than it received in services, and it tended to be out-voted on any issues which divided the north and south, so the southern states decided to secede from the union which was their lawful right under the Constitution. Lincoln got 750,000 Americans and the 10th Amendment killed for no good reason.

          • Slātlantican

            I too mourn the loss of the 10th Amendment, which was integral to the genius of the American experiment. But I place more blame on FDR and the Supreme Court for that than I do on Lincoln.

            Regardless, none of this changes the fact that the South fought the War in an attempt to guarantee the continuation of slavery.

          • Sloppo

            The vast majority of southern soldiers did not own slaves and there were many southerners who wanted to end slavery. Many northerners owned slaves including the family of Ulysses S. Grant. So, you believe a slave owning general who opposed slavery fought a majority non-slave owning southern army which endured years of terrible hardships and took many casualties to preserve the institution of slavery. That’s an interesting theory you have there.

          • Slātlantican

            Matching your argument style as well as it does, I must say that your name suits you.

            We don’t look to the private lives of soldiers who fought in, say WW II or Vietnam to ascertain what the motivations of the state are to go to war.

            That’s an interesting irrelevancy you have there.

          • Sloppo

            The United States normally goes to war to promote the interests of the international banking community. An approximately 45 minute Youtube movie entitled “All Wars Are Bankers Wars” explains that scenario quite nicely.

          • anony

            Wrong again. The South fought the war to continue the sovereignty of the States, and to keep the federal government constrained by the chains of the Constitution.

          • Slātlantican

            Slavery became an issue only after the war effort was losing public support in the North. The publication of Uncle Tom’s Cabin brought the issue of slavery to the public eye, and as they say, the rest is history.

            Slavery became an issue only after the war was losing support?Really? Tell that to the state legislators who voted for secession not only before the war began, but before Lincoln was even inaugurated, and in voting for secession, explicitly stated they were doing this to protect the institution of slavery.It was not only “an” issue, it was “the” issue.

            So you say that the war was proceeding apace, and not going well for the North, but then Uncle Tom’s Cabin brought slavery to the public eye? Are you serious? Uncle Tom’s Cabin was published in 1852, almost a decade before the war began!

            Besides, slavery had been the preeminent issue in American politics since at least 1820 (Missouri Compromise).

            Look, I’m sure you have some knowledge about the Civil War. For example, I think your point about the war not going well for the North (which was certainly true for a while) may have gotten you mixed up with Lincoln’s motivations for the Emanicipation Proclaimation. Lincoln did indeed time that with political intentions that were tied to the prospects for the war, and he was trying to rally support for the war.

            But this conversation in this thread has never been about the North’s motivations. If you want to argue that the North was only concerned about preserving the Union and not about ending slavery, you would certainly be right (at least for the first half of the war or so). But we’re talking about the South’s motivations. There are many proud Southerners here arguing that they were not fighting because of slavery, but only for states’ rights. And the secession proclamations of Mississippi, South Carolina, and Texas all belie that notion..

          • Sloppo

            The South had the legal right to secede, and it chose to do so because it did not consider Union membership to be beneficial for southern citizens and states. Slavery could and I believe would have ended peacefully in the South with very little bloodshed without the War of Northern Aggression.

          • Slātlantican

Slavery could and I believe would have ended peacefully in the South with very little bloodshed without the War of Northern Aggression.

            I agree with your first sentence, and have made the same point here several times.

            The second point is certainly possible, but it would not have been easy, as the Constitution of the CSA strictly forbade either the states or the CSA Congress from passing any laws restricting the right to own slaves.

          • Sloppo

            It might have taken a little while, but I’m pretty sure there end of slavery could and would have happened in the South as it eventually did in the North after the war. Seven hundred thousand people did not have to die in the process.

          • Slātlantican

            Agree that it may have happened without bloodshed. Would that have been better? It’s a subjective question, tied in part to the issue of how long would it have taken?

            If Jim Crow is any indication, it looks like it would have taken 100 years. And even then, equality only came about as a result of federal intervention. And even then, there were thousands of white people in the South willing to commit acts of violence.

            So if (and I know that’s an “if”) it had taken 100 years, would it have been better to have done it quickly, with all the lost lives? I’ll let that question be answered by the hypothetical generations of suffering slaves, and the hypothetical children of the men who died before they were fathers. Because I certainly have no right to decide that.

          • Sloppo

            In my opinion, it would have taken a lot less than a hundred years. Slaveowners were a minority in the South. I believe they would have easily been outvoted on the issue. There were plenty of reasons to end slavery and the way it happened was very unfair to a lot of people. Ideally, black slaves should have been repatriated to their own homelands. The Atlantic Ocean would have been a much better form of protective separation than anything Jim Crow had to offer.

          • Slātlantican

            Slaveowners were a minority in the South. I believe they would have easily been outvoted on the issue.

            You presume that the non-slave owning whites would have wanted to get rid of slavery. No evidence of that. Many hoped someday they could get some slaves themselves. Others just realized that, without slavery, the South’s economy would be devistated.

            But of course, we’ll never know, and I think we’ve taken this about as far as we can, wouldn’t you agree?

          • anony

            Restricting one’s right to own slaves does not preclude one from not owning slaves. Technology would have very soon made slave ownership uneconomical.

          • anony

            You’re right about the publication date of UTC; don’t know what I was thinking!

            The causes of the war involved more than slavery. Southern writers tend to diminish slavery as a cause for obvious reasons especially those who wrote during the 19th century and the early parts of the twentieth century. Similarly, northern writers emphasized slavery as the cause and virtually ignored other reasons like high tariffs. there is no doubt that different “players” had different motives.

            We will surely never resolve the issue here; after all, the argument has been raging for well over one hundred years.

            Robert E. Lee, when declining the offer to command Union forces, stated that he was compelled to fight for his beloved State of Virginia. Lincoln stated that if he could save the Union without freeing one slave, he would do it.

          • anony

            Yes, tariffs played a part in the decision to secede.

        • anony

          The heart of the cultural uniqueness of the South was its’ people who were very different from the Yankee Northerners. An excellent description of this difference is found in the book BORN FIGHTING by James Webb.

  • Randall Ward

    If you believe that Lincolns war for Northern domination of the USA was about race, you are uneducated in the real history of the war. No matter what you think of the war; what do you think of the government that Lincolns war ushered in? Like it? Obamas favorite president is A Lincoln.

    • gooberboy9999

      It was about states rights and the ability to secede from the union, but why they wanted to secede came down to the slavery issue (among others, but I can easily argue that slavery was the biggest), which comes back down to race.

      Southerners wanted to keep the blacks they owned, and northerners didn’t want slavery to continue because they were afraid it meant more blacks would be located near them. In the end everyone got screwed.

      Amusing that Lincoln would be Obama’s favorite president, since he didn’t want to free the slaves and was in favor of sending them all back to Africa.

      • Randall Ward

        It was like when “Little Big Man” said; “the world is too crazy to live in”. Southerners were close to blacks and did not fear them in 1860. Northern States had laws that didn’t allow a free black to set foot in the state and yet the writers of the Lincoln myth want us to believe that the Northern Soldier willingly laid their lives to “free the slaves”.
        People don’t think of the war as being real, they think it was a movie. But when people imagine the US Military bombing their town to a heap of ash it becomes a little more real for them. I often ask people; what would the people in your state have to do wrong, today, to bring the US Military to the state to destroy your homes, animals, factories, roads, power grid, water system, etc? All the South wanted was to be left in peace. The issue of slavery was becoming a moot point anyway as machinery replaced human labor. Every nation in the world ended slavery peacefully, except the USA. That is because Lincoln wanted something else out of the war; a very powerful central government and no power in the states.

    The confederacy stands for the exact same thing that America (used to) stand for. The right to self determination. I don’t know how anyone could argue that the 13 colonies had the right to secede from Britain but the confederate states did not have the right to secede from the union. In any event, I would much rather see the confederate flag fly than watch a bunch of spooks throw a ball around.
