re: Slavery was not the only issue the South was fighting for - SMU Tiger Fan
First of all, NO I don't think that a state should have a right to pass laws that discriminate against any race. That, though, is a constitutional issue. Slavery is wrong, and was always wrong.

I'm not sure this is being taught in schools these days or that this generation of millennials understands this. I hope I'm wrong, but I would assume that viewpoint and curriculum just does not fit the narrative of those who control our schools these days....

Slavery was not the only issue the South was fighting for - SMU Tiger Fan

re: New Orleans violent crime- is it possible to fix it? - SMU Tiger Fan
Yes, exactly. Any common sense attempt to rid the problem will lead to you being labeled RACIST and cast out of society as a pariah! Probably better to just increase taxes to the point where you move away and stay away. Fricking Dems are either stupid, evil or both. :banghead:...
