    Yeah. I think blacks still prefer a time when they aren't whipped, raped, murdered and forced into slave labor. I'm just throwing assumptions out there. :dunno:

    I think the guy's a nut, but he provided a caveat right there in the freaking quote.

    This is why partisans just can't be believed. They stretch damn near everything to the absurd.

    I bet you are too mentally incompetent to understand his point. I am certainly no supporter of Roy Moore. I hope he loses the election, but nowhere in those comments did he support slavery. Typical faux over reaction by ignorant and dishonest people.

    what caveat is that? that "despite slavery".... ?

    that isn't a caveat. that shows that what he thinks is great applies only to people who look like him.

    cause i don't know about you, but when my grandmother came here, she thought it was pretty good because it was better than Russia and drunk anti-semites didn't break her windows on sundays after they got lit. but reality was that at 12 she went to work in a sweat shop doing piecework.

    I'm pretty sure she'd have said America was better a year ago than it was in 1912.... or any time before that.

    They were united against black people.

    You know, the good old days.

    What the hell are you blathering on about? The north had slavery. As a matter of fact it was the great shipping families of the north that made their fortunes running slaves from Africa to America.

    Biggest enablers of slavery were Yankees.

    Roy Moore also thinks that women shouldn't participate in politics or run for office.

    Yeah.................such a visionary guy.

    America had slaves. And Moore thinks that was when we were our greatest.

    Because that was when families were kept together- unless they were slaves being sold off.
