or the bigotry, hate and ignorance of Rob Baker on display
I guess Baker thinks he is a real comedian poking fun at the Negro men and women who served the Confederacy. Typical of Baker, he passed up a perfect opportunity for his students and himself to learn something about these overlooked folks who served the their country. The fact they may have been owned, regardless of the position they held, or where or when they served has no bearing on the issue. The bullets were real, the diseases where real and death was just as real to them as any man of any race who served either side.
Baker prove me wrong.
A person who has any interest in learning about the service of these people can go to “Negroes In Gray” at
to view some 10,000 entries.
Note the card below for a Negro soldier. Note all the information listed, then convince me he was NOT a soldier.
