    Pretty much when we were a third world country as 65-70% farmed, mistreated other people and there was no rights for the workers.

    most children died before adulthood from disease
    Most children didn't have education

    What a sick fucker.

    Another lying thread title. He qualified the time period. And it's a time period where the family was the center of one's life. A time of Little House on the Prairie. Tom Sawyer. Little Women.

    There are least some rumblings that businesses may avoid Alabama if Moore is elected. Boycotts of one form or another. lol, Alabama may be looking back fondly on the good old days of 2017.

    Well lets see what he actually said

    In response to a question from one of the only African Americans in the audience — who asked when Moore thought America was last “great” -- Moore acknowledged the nation’s history of racial divisions, but said: “I think it was great at the time when families were united -- even though we had slavery -- they cared for one another…. Our families were strong, our country had a direction.”


    I am not sure why he thought that slavery was when 'families were united' since slave owners broke up families.....

    What time period do you think was so great?

    According to blacks they are still oppressed. So any time period will be one where blacks were oppressed.

    I guess if he would had answered, ”Never, America has never been great because we have always opppressed blacks”, then you would be applauding him?
