In regards to those Southerners who owned slaves and lived large in plantation mansions while the Black folks toiled for no pay and got whipped, raped and murdered for their troubles? This situation was entirely the fault of Northern a-holes! Let's put it this way, folks. Those rich northern bankers and industrialists probably got a wee bit more out of it than the poor white trash from the Allegheny and Blue Ridge Mountains did.
What more proof do you need that the Left's narrative is complete bullshit? Northern emancipation certainly didn't free all the slaves in that a great many northern slave owners (in a ploy to protect their investment) simply sent their slaves south to be sold/auctioned off.
Yet the Leftists and their narrative of blaming the South for simply wanting to escape the thievery of high tariffs imposed upon it by the North... blame that has the South as "evil". It's disgusting, especially given the fact that Northerners basically forced Southerners to accept slavery in order to enrich themselves!
Of course, what is probably the most diabolical element of all here is the fact that a great many of these same northern states immediately instituted "black codes" which would have made it next to impossible for blacks (on the contingency that southern slaves were ever emancipated) to reside there... although THAT I understand, given the fact that Blacks are prone to criminality.
According to the National Crime Victimization Survey, there were 320,082 episodes of black on white violence in America in 2010 but only 62,593 episodes of white on black violence. This is a 5:1 ratio and when you factor in the population differential you end up with the fact that a black person is 25 times more likely to attack a white person than the other way around.
I mean, I know that this probably a revelation to those of you (and I'm not naming names like Elia Kazan) who strictly get your news from the Huffington Post, MSNBC, liberal talk-radio, Media Matters, etc. but if you really and truly want to get to the heart of racial violence in the U.S. you have to go to the aggregates and not give so much credence to these highly publicized and inflammatory episodes.
Inflammatory episodes like this Dylann Roof fellow shooting up a Black church. It boggles my mind why people are making such a big deal out of this when the Black criminals get a free pass! Will the lies from the Left demonizing the South never stop? Answer... no.
