My problem with the south isn't that they had slaves, although that is revolting, it's that nearly one hundred years after the slaves were "freed" black people still couldn't drink from the same water fountain, eat from the same restaurant counter or use the same god damn shitter as a white man in many southern states. Taxation didn't have shit to do with thinking another human being was only equal to 3/5 of another human being because of a darker skin pigmentation. And what about now? Alabama, one of the most racist states in America not only solidified that stature but showed their intense hatred to the LGBT community during their recent senatorial election as well. It would be different if the south had progressed in their way of thinking towards anyone not white and heterosexual but they haven't. They still keep the "niggers in their place" and they'll keep the fight up against "homosexual terrorism".

The Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution abolished slavery and involuntary servitude, ***except as punishment for a crime.***

Sooooo, in the United States, the Black Codes were laws passed by Southern states in 1865 and 1866.

These laws had the intent and the effect of restricting African Americans' freedom, and of compelling them to work in a labor economy based on low wages or debt, lest they be arrested for vagrancy. (aka. Not working the shitty jobs offered them.)

Black Codes were part of a larger pattern of Southern whites trying to suppress the new freedom of emancipated African-American slaves. And if they resisted these so-called laws, they were criminals, and thus arrestable, and used as free labor.

This was the start of mass incarceration of the black population, and the violent relationship with law enforcement.


Didn't undue oppression by the govt come up as justifiable actions for rising up against said govt earlier in this discussion?

Let it sink in that service members and family of members have a just as much a right to kneel for a raised flag, as they too gave of their lives/family members, only to have to come back from the "justifiable wars", in Europe where they enjoyed great freedom, only to return to America to be niggers again.

Additionally, let's not forget how the draft worked against the black population, so that they were put into service, as they didn't have the opportunity for deferrals, as their whiter, wealthier countrymen did.

And note it wasn't until these deferrals were tightened, that more white boys were being sent, from families with better economic heritage, did the draft finally outrage the right people so that it then did end.

"Justifiable war" in Europe... The continent that stole them away from to the Americas...

And made the colonial "subjects" fight in Europe.....

The "Middle East Crisis" is because some white asshole supremacists didn't figure the brown bastards knew how to govern themselves, so they carved up the so-called "middle east" with the Skye-Piquot agreement, which furthermore took neither race, religion, nor history into account, after they'd struck a deal with them to win the war.


Boy oh boy.... Wonder where those "angry A-rabs" and " Fun duh mentalist Moose Lambs" came from.... ????? The west hasn't been Colonialising, dictating and killing their families for years or anything......
