the life and times of jannat m.: Actually, the Confederate Flag IS about fucking racism.







God damnit, if anything pisses me off more it’s when people pull the damn race card.

There is going to be an option for a new license plate in Texas with a little confederate flag on it.
But people are…

GRRRRRL ^ You right for dat! 

sigh will some one please find the quote that the creators of the confederacy had said about whites being superior to blacks and about the war really actually legit being about racism? 
Cuz the Op really needs it. 

Found it!!!! And I quote:

The new Constitution has put at rest forever all the agitating questions relating to our peculiar institutions—African slavery as it exists among us—the proper status of the negro in our form of civilization. This was the immediate cause of the late rupture and present revolution. Jefferson, in his forecast, had anticipated this, as the “rock upon which the old Union would split.” He was right. What was conjecture with him, is now a realized fact. But whether he fully comprehended the great truth upon which that rock stood and stands, may be doubted. The prevailing ideas entertained by him and most of the leading statesmen at the time of the formation of the old Constitution were, that the enslavement of the African was in violation of the laws of nature; that it was wrong in principle, socially, morally and politically. It was an evil they knew not well how to deal with; but the general opinion of the men of that day was, that, somehow or other, in the order of Providence, the institution would be evanescent and pass away… Those ideas, however, were fundamentally wrong. They rested upon the assumption of the equality of races. This was an error. It was a sandy foundation, and the idea of a Government built upon it—when the “storm came and the wind blew, it fell.”

Our new Government is founded upon exactly the opposite ideas; its foundations are laid, its cornerstone rests, upon the great truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery, subordination to the superior race, is his natural and moral condition.

Said by the Confederate VP, Alexander Stephens in 1861. So OP is a dumb ass.
