Black racism is fine, white racism is a no-no. I just found that out. For an example let’s take a look at this blog post on Freedman’s patrol at https://freedmenspatrol.wordpress.com/2015/03/09/keeping-the-skeer-on/
The post is about the billboard with Forrest’s picture at Selma. The blogger goes on to say that Forrest formed the KKK, killed thousands of Black, murdered USCT at Fort Pillow etc. etc. You know the drill. he alsogoes on tosaythe Goodwin’s are racist because they dared to utter the words — WHITE HERITAGE – . gasp I have said it now!!!!!!!!!!!
At any rate I corrected some of these out and out lies that the blogger posted, and really did get him grudgingly to admit that that two facts were wrong. More importantly I steered him to the subject of Black History Month, which by any set of standards is racist in its very nature. This fellow defended the celebration of Black history to the very end.
SO TELL ME WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE??? If the celebration of white history and heritage is racist, then why isn’t the celebration of Black History or the celebration of any ethnic history racist? If one is to be honored all should be honored.
Getting back — anyway this Freedman blogger in a half hearted attempt to correct his outright ignorance or lies, made another post at https://freedmenspatrol.wordpress.com/2015/03/12/two-small-corrections-on-forrest/
he still insists that Forrest was a fiounder of the KKK and his actions before, during and after the war was his based on “keep the skeer oon em.” he never once mentions that the Goodwins statements involving white heritage, is no more racist than Black history or heritage.
To make a long story short, I factually disputed everything he said, which just ruined his day. he got mad and banned me. That is typical of those from the other side.The last posts that I made do not show up but they all civil, no insults and deal with the racism. I did point out that I have done more research on Black Confederates than most people. So much for a discussion on race as Holder and Obama call for. Oh well.
