Why is that so surprising? You know how biologically diverse most African-Americans are, and probably British Blacks/Africans too (to a lesser extent). The concept of "race" is a Eurocentric, 18th century invention. Technically, there is only one race: Humans. Different "races" like Blacks and Whites are Varities, not "Races". Biologically speaking, a Black man is more genetically similar to a White man than he is a Black woman. There is more genetic difference between genders than races. On...

Firt of all... I've got to see this film! IMO, that extrapolation doesn't go deep enough. That's why it's confusing. It wasn't agriculture vs. industiral. It was about money. Slavery was causing economic porblems for the North, and at the same time they weren't making much money off of it. The South, on the other hand, was totally dependant. For them, it was like choosing between being a multi-millionaire and being homeless. There really was no middle ground. It was about money. Great book!
