    I notice many ill-educated white people decrying the character of their pink-skinned brethren during the black slave era. I can only conclude this is due to ignorance on their part. I would hate to think it's part of an agenda involving social engineering, and rather than being stupid they're actually trying to influence public opinion. For example:

    a) In 1860, at the height of slavery, less than 2% of the population owned even a single slave, according the the US Census

    b) More than a few pale assed motherfuckers gave their lives to free their dark skinned counterparts

    Thank you :hat:

    A poll of Union soldiers at the time may have thrown a wrench in that theory...

    Yeah well my ancestors were brought to North America in chains from England in the 1600s. Forced to work in the West Lynn ironworks for the King of England till it was shut down and they were set free. "You people" always seem to think slavery was a crime only committed against Africans. :pie:

    Please white people sent their own children to work 20 hours a day pulling a coal sled in the mines or washing fiberglass by hand in the factories.

    Not unless he was in the fabled "2 PerCenters"

    Interesting theory:

    Only 2% of whitey owned slaved

    a whole bunch of us died trying to free them

    ergo, the level of residual black resentment/prejudice/hatred over this issue that continues strong as ever to this day is disproportionate, especially since none of them were slaves and, and, and, none of the white people they hate today had anything to do with anything (my relatives didn't come over here from Europe until the early 1900s, etc) and, and, and, and, especially since if it not for slavery, this is what they would be doing this very second:
