    In the Third Century the Romans had Arabs, Africans and European fighting for a common causes...the Csa never had this not in the sense that the Romans did,

      Jefferson Davis and The Lost Cause and Douglas Southall Freeman: they practiced revisionist history before the term was even coined, and in so doing laid the foundation for Jim Crow and the Klan. That's as "ground truth" as it gets.
      In 1860 slaves were the US' most valuable class of asset, worth more than all the real estate, securities, industrial plant, and railroads and rolling stock -- combined. That was the planters' motive to secede. What that had to do with Joe Schmo in the trenches I have no idea.

          Only a matter or time, and very soon it will be churches, mosques and synagogues, all of which are monuments to religions that offend somebody, somewhere.

          Then, we will be asked to repaint and remodel the White House itself because when you really look at it, it looks like a Southern plantation. Maybe make it look more like a Chicago ghetto apartment block.

          • George Orwell would have been so proud of us, as would Stalin and Hitler. There was a documentary on Tv just this morning by an "authority"
            who declares that the problems in Chicago are a result of a history of systematic white racism and oppression, despite the history of black mayors...of course.

              These are all from just one city in Germany.

              Bath England got it's name from the Roman Baths and, and, and
              You again take things out of context, he didn't say the Roman's tore down all things Roman.

                No kidding, and now the Libs in San Francisco want to remove all reference to Father Serra
                Why not Stanford, a well-known racist?
                FDR?

                  Do away with Google, for starters. They are a business, and very vulnerable to public opinion.

                    Father Serra was Spanish and therefore part of the slavery/exploitation of the New World. Spanish Cathedrals were made using local slave labor and filled with converts at the point of the Spanish sword.

                    Bet the Hispanics won't like that, but history is what it is.

                      Seems like the public opinion isn't the same as yours.

                        Never said it was, HPJ. What I specifically said was that the way to fight against Google domination/censorship was to arouse public opinion against it, since it is a private company and therefore vulnerable to things like that which affect its stock market position. I never use Google, myself, nor any of its spin-offs because I get far better service from other entities in the same category. I quite using Google when they joined China in censoring an entire nation.
