The white Confederates defending the south's honor in Selma

As civil rights campaigners marked 50 years since Bloody Sunday, elsewhere in Selma a small band of southerners were mourning the loss of the Confederacy

The people in the south the white people, who were being abused organised a neighbourhood watch to try to re-establish some order, he said of the nascent Klan. Slavery in the south was a bad institution, he said, but possibly the mildest, most humane form of slavery ever practiced.

If you look at the wealth created by the slaves, in food, clothing, shelter, medical care, care before youre old enough to work, care until you died, they got 90% of the wealth that they generated, he said. I dont get that. The damn government takes my money to the tune of 50%.

Kiscaden and Godwin insisted they were not racist. But they made plain that they hankered for a revival of some of the ideals most Americans believe were defeated in 1865.

Very noble values indeed...

'But 50 years after the march across the bridge, Selma remains racially divided. Schools are almost entirely segregated - as is the local country club which, still today, is said to maintain a white-only membership.

More overt forms of racism aren’t far from the surface, either. Some of the black families in Selma opened their front doors this weekend to find letters containing white supremacist literature on their doorsteps, wrapped in rocks. The Klan claimed responsibility for distributing 4,000 letters in Selma and Montgomery. There is no suggestion Kiscaden or Godwin had any connection to the distribution of the letters.'

It's certainly a wacky statement.

You gotta love these people...

Right. Raping and molesting women and children, taking children from families, raping men's wives in front of them, showing a woman's virgina before you sell them, beating, hanging, pulling apart with horses, just to name a few was the most humane form of slavery ever practiced in the U.S.

Indeed, it all sounds so mild and humane, it's baffling that black Americans don't look back at the whole thing with a big smile and appreciation for how good they actually had. [eye roll]
