    He certainly didn't support slavery.

    But saying that America was at our greatest when we had slavery- is kind of like a German proclaiming that Germany was at its greatest in 1944-"even though we were gassing Jews."

    which time is that? It isn't now. Blacks believe then are oppressed more now than any other time.

    Merka was great when fags and wimmin knew their place.

    Merka was great when you could diddle a kid and marry yer cousin, y'all!

    Merka was great when the negroes were in chains.

    Merka was great when you could lynch a negro fer lookin at your sister. Them there's family values!

    When has the family not been the center of life? I know for myself and every other adult who has a family and whom I know, our families are the focus of damn near everything we do and why we do it. I realize that perhaps not everyone sees themselves and their roles that way, but I don't see any reason to think the overwhelming majority of people who have families do not see themselves, their choices/actions and their place in the world in terms of their family.

    What distinguishes his remark is that the period he specified is the one in which family was the center of life and slavery existed. I think that's astounding. Hell, the man could have said any period after the abolition of slavery, even the 1870s, yet he didn't. Instead, he made a point to note that the period in his mind was the one in which slavery also existed.
