You're going to make that argument to a beer swilling, heavy metal listening eighteen year old? Really? Are you so old now that you've completely forgotten how you felt/thought as a teen?

The answer is yes, I would include not only your narrow stereotype but all Confederate flag wavers.

Like you Fox, I grew my hair long to show rebellion, party and have fun but it also included a social consciousness which I believe hasn't entirely gone out of fashion with today's generation.

Re: Kid Rock Refuses to Stop Displaying Confederate Flag ... - Ultimate Classic Rock

Before everyone jumps on the "Bury the rebel/confederate flag in a Museum" bandwagon.....

You really need to read this factual website about Southern Heritage:

https://southernheritage411.com/aboutus.shtml


And just thought you all might like to see a poster from the US North recruiting Blacks to fight the Civil War. This poster is in the USA archives.




The census in the 1860's didn't count blacks, they weren't considered citizens, but historians have claimed that blacks amounted to 1% of the Northern population. However, the northern army was comprised of roughly 10 - 15% blacks. They did pay the blacks to fight, however, the pay was not equal to the whites. Blacks soldiers also were not provided medical care unless the care was provided by black nurses & doctors.



I'm just attempting to educate you on WHO was prejudice during the Civil War.

The civil war was as much about fleecing the cotton/tobacco fields from the South as it was about slavery.

Re: Kid Rock Refuses to Stop Displaying Confederate Flag ... - Ultimate Classic Rock

The only bandwagon being jumped on is the neo-Confederate revisionism bandwagon.

Black Confederates

And for the second half of your post literally every white person in America in the 1800's would have been considered racist by today's standard. Even white abolishionists viewed blacks as helpless creatures that required saving rather than equal human beings. The Civil War was not fought over the morallity of slavery, it was fought over the economy of slavery. But it was most assuredly fought over slavery.
