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.

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...
