CONFEDERATE HISTORY IS SUPREMACY HISTORY BY JULIANNE MALVEAUX Last week, Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell proclaimed April Confederate History Month in his state. In fact he proclaimed the date on April 7, which is the same day in 1865 that Confederate general Robert E. Lee began to negotiate the terms of surrender with United States General Ulysses S. Grant. In some states, this day is considered Confederate Memorial Day, and Virginia is not alone is celebrating “Confederate History Month”.

I’m not for indiscriminate arrests and deportations based on ethnicity or race, but I guess the governor had to do something drastic about the ever growing immersion of illegal immigrants. The Federal government refuses to effectively deal with this thorny issue and so it is now left up to the states. Bush 41 had eight years to address the border problem but stridently refused to do so. He could have secured the borders under Home Land Security but looked the other way. So, the states are...

This is a someone ambiguous video and therefore can be easily misinterpreted. Let me explain why. The things that are missing from the video: 1. the fact that NON-WHITES are being targeted with this law. Which I believe was the intention all along. 2. This is a STATE law and NOT a federal law. Meaning the federal government is not endorsing this crap, so the state senator should shut up about President Obama "violating" their rights.

This law is in conflict with federal law in the first place. However, don't hold your breath until it is struck down. This is merely yet another effort by racist whites to have control over non-whites in this country and I hope that ALL other non-whites in this country don't think that this is going to stop at Latinos/Mexicans or at the Arizona border. But, since a larger percentage of Latinos than makes any sense are/vote republican, maybe the Republican Latinos/Mexicans (and the...

These are images from Harpers Weekly of the rioters, most of whom where Irish. They were upset about conscription into the Union army while the wealthy white citizens (of English extraction) kept themselves and their sons out of harms way. The first two images are of lynchings of African Americans, and the last is the burning of the African American orphanage.
