The south was the territory of the Dems. KKK was the Dems. Jim Crow was the Dems. The Dems voted against any civil rights laws....until after the Civil War (1865). Since the Dems no longer had the slaves to do their bidding after 1865 and the plantations were in decline, the Dems had to find something to enrich themselves. Immigrants arriving in the USA. The Dems latched on to the immigrants providing them with free things, meager as those things might have been it was better then nothing. Then the Dems went after the unions. All the maneuvers were to get people to keep voting the Dems in. ...and today, we can called it the urban plantation. Aaaaaaargh, to me the Dems are the Republicans are the democrats - they are as equally corrupt as each other. The more important issue you bring up is the political infighting over slaves. Today the 'urban plantation' is the prison. What do you do when it becomes increasingly hard to enslave people? You either keep enslaving them, or you wish they'd just disappear. Warehousing people, stop them from breeding, and profit from them. You see none of this is really that clever. If I was so inclined, I could have come up with this strategy over my morning cup of coffee. And the caveat is I would have to be prejudiced, venal, mentally impaired and someone so completely unaware of my self that I wouldn't realize how fucking stupid I was. I'm not anti-American, just reasonably intelligent. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
