What people made up the Confederacy? People that had just come over from Europe.No you can't, because they are one and the same. Who made up the Confederacy? The same racist who raping, maiming, beating and murdering black folks. Duh.
Wow. That is completely ignorant of you.
The Confederacy was a regional (the south) government of states that rebelled against the National government.
Lynching was mob attacks on people for various reasons from informal law enforcement to racial terrorism, that was found though out the nation as as whole, not limited to the South.
TO say they are the same thing is just a... oh, right.
You are lying. Sorry, and I'm the guy that started the thread the Lesson of Charlottessville.
Yeah, your lie is dismissed.
My point stands.
Lynching and the Confederacy are two distinct historical events. Obviously you can honor one, without honoring the other.
No, they weren't.
There is nothing wrong with Southern's having some regional pride. It was over 150 years ago, why do you care?
