Ok, so I'll call you Thomas, if you're really of Asian descent.
Thomas. Patriotism is wonderful and necessary for the strength of any nation. However, I think you're an idealist.
>Playtoe, HAVE HEART...EVEN ANIMALS HAVE RIGHTS IN THIS COUNTRY...MY FRIEND!!!
P: If whites fought as hard for human rights as they did for [bleeping] animals, we wouldn't have this mess. It took black folks 350 years, until 1965, with the Civil Rights and Voting Rights acts. For hundreds of years blacks were treated as "property", can you imagine that! Yet, here you are trying to overlook the bulk of American history and claim America is all about freedom and liberty. If it weren't for the black struggle in America and it's successes, you'd be hard pressed to make such a claim. 50 years ago you couldn't say what you say.
>AMERICA IS SPECIAL IN THAT...IT IS ONLY...AN IDEA! MANY OTHER CULTURES, THROUGH REVOLUTIONS, OR REFORMATION (THE ENGLISH WITH THEIR MAGNA CARTA TO THE KING)...FORCED A BETTER, MORE EQUAL SOCEITY...
P: There's always been a segment of white's for freedom. From the very start the white abolitionist movements began. But they lacked power over the majority of whites who condoned, if not participated in the slave trade. All whites have benefited from it. Slavery only ended because of the profitability question...they figured out that a slave master was responsible for the medical, food, clothing and lodging costs of each individual, whereas in the North, they paid $1 a day and that worker had to pay his own bills.
>ONLY AMERICA...WAS CREATED....TO BE THAT WAY...FROM THE START...EQUALITY...ENDING IN WARFARE WITH EACH OTHER TO FREE ANOTHER RACE...
P: BULL! Equality for only whites...while the Native American, Blacks, Chinese and other minorities experienced no such thing. Like Martin L. King Jr., said, though, when Blacks make strides in equal rights, all people, including poor whites benefited.
>UNHEARD OF EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!....IN THE HISTORY OF HUMANKIND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...THINK PLAYTOE....YOU AND I...AMERICANS OF AFRICAN AND ASIAN (I REALLY AM...AN ASIAN!) ANCSESTRY...ARE LEGALLY ABLE TO SPEW OUR "SILLY" VIEWS...AND ASSERT THEM AT ANYTIME!!!!
P: You are talking about some very recent developments...remember Communist "Black Lists", not that long ago! Again, you're an idealist.
>IF YOU READ MY EARLIER THREADS...THE CIVIL WAR...WAS REALLY...A WAR BETWEEN 2 DIFFERENT EUROPEAN COUNTRIES/POLITICAL THOUGHT: THE ENGLISH (YANKEES)...AND THE SPANISH/FRENCH SOUTH...LES ANGLAIS, COWBOYS (VAQUEROS, CABALLEROS, RODEOS)...SOUTHERN BELLE-FRENCH...
P:You are mistaken, a little. English "criminals" mainly went into the south (unclaimed areas), while English nobleman started the colonies. In the West, you are somewhat correct. Though the Lousiana Purchase was a French position, I don't find a great difference between white Frenchmen and Englishmen. Both participated in the partitioning and colonization of Africa.
>ANYWAYS, ENOUGH OF MY "PATRIOTIC SPEECH"...TO ANSWER YOU...
P: Patriotism is great, but reality is faced by a sober mind, not one enamored by images and idealism.
