No one has made that claim.


I merely answered your comment: " I do not understand southern heritage or southern pride, what it represents"

I admitted what? Weird... I said


It starts out with the human nature, of resisting the bully.

It has turned into resentment, from being raised to be a victim of ones own identity for generations.


3 question marks and a conclusion.... LOL!!


The bully is the one using physical force, pal.
Unhurling a flag and making a statement, does not qualify as being a bully. Unless it is your individual definition today.
Who was forced at this publicly funded school, to consent to another human beings thinking?

Because it was his choice(freedom) from many choices(liberty).
Not your individual choice, to make for him to consent or use force..

Southerners are often made light of on TV, radio, on the internet, etc... for being backwoods, uneducated rednecks. This couldn't be further from the truth. We pride ourselves on our culture of friendliness, helpfulness, hospitality, and equality (despite what many think from watching too much TV and despite the few that really are uneducated and still hang on to racism, but again this happens everywhere).


It's difficult to explain and is more of an experience that you would need to have to understand how it really is here.

Very well put!

And the educated know this, but it has to be explained to the ignorant.

Honestly no race should feel superior. Whites are basically black people. They came from us. Many dont know the first Europeans were black. Documented scientific evidence that proves this.

We are 1 race. Tbe human race and should treat each other as such.

The absolute truth is that two recessives (Whites) cannot reproduce a dominant (Black), however two dominants can reproduce recessive. White people are Black with a genetic defect (recessive gene) that robs the skin of melanin. There is only one race, and it's the human race.

DNA testing does indeed confirm that the first humans that lived originally in Africa (homo sapiens) were black so were the ones that moved out to Asia and Europe. With the first migration out of Africa, the Neanderthal developed separately and not as intellectually stronger as Homo sapiens from Africa. The Homo sapiens from Africa mated with the Neanderthals. The White race wasn't around 7000 years ago.

You claimed that the first Europeans were black. There is no evidence of this. The first Europeans did have darker skin compared to now (lighter skin only emerged later), but dark skin =/= black.
