Jimmy Dick and Rob Baker go on about how they are educators and historians. On my post at https://coldsouthernsteel.wordpress.com/2014/11/17/what-indicates-that-he-is-a-soldier/ you will see I reference a blog post by Baker in which he makes the statement that “negroes were forced to serve the Confederacy. Farther down the page, Dick seconds that statement. Neither one would offer proof that any Negro was forced to serve the confederacy. I am not saying it didn’t happen, I know for a fact men were forced to serve — on both sides. Heck as far as that goes I received my own draft notice. That being the case, Baker and Dick are only telling a portion of history. Their version of history is a lie, biased and bigoted. To verify what I have saying, one should read —
for some numbers.
Being that Jimmy Dick likes to call me a liar because I said there were Negroes who served as soldiers in the Confederacy, I shall prove him wrong. Baker’s and Dick’s whole game is based on a play of words not historical fact. Let me go on record as saying this, I did post records that were very scarce in the information department. It was a deliberate move in order to expose Baker’s bigotry. The fact that Dick, and a couple of others, jumped on the wagon with Baker is a bonus. They refused to give these men and women even the slightest acknowledgment that they served in the Confederate forces even though information proved otherwise. Baker was even so kind as to post Carey pension record. It should be noted that many of the Negro cards lack a great deal of information.
Now I don’t get mad at Dick’s insults, it just serves to prove his ignorance. What I do is post fact to prove my point. These cards will clearly should the bigotry, ignorance and lies both Baker and Dick have been passing out as history Choose at random and for no particular reason
No the argument will not be center around his job. If you want to play that angle I will simply point you to the cards of the white men I have already posted.
To be honest I am no historian, I would be insulted to be called such since Baker and his associates have so soiled the title. Call me a researcher since I have vied more than 20,000 records of men, women and children who have served the confederacy in one way or another.
NO INSULTS WILL BE TOLERATED –PERIOD
