I had read the thread, and posted before.

I think that people are getting all riled up when they disagree with what someone posts and then they respond emotionally. Hey, I do it too I don't think the original post was meant to be offensive.

HB, Yes, the northern abolitionist movement included people who were not Christians, but that really is beside the point.

Christians here were encouraged by his success and worked very hard to abolish slavery all through the country. It's what led to our Civil War, you'll remember. They worked with many who were not Christian, but they worked...

So please explain where these reparations are going to come rom. This is something you're for? Am I correct? If you're for it, it will only come from the system as it presently exists (Democrat or Republican). Either that or you radically change the system. Which you don't seem to favor. But you disparage Democrats. That leaves the Republicans. But that means you're really * not * serious.

Now there is no debating that. Anyone who tries to deny the fact that "school vouchers" have a racist past, and most likely a racist modern-day intent, have their heads buried in the ground. Of course, many White racists will deny it to the end, and their Black-faced, chicken-eating, greasy-grinnin', coon-shuffling lackies will follow them to the ends of the Earth and beyond.
