Happy Anti-Black History Month


Happy Confederate History Month Virginia! That’s right Va Governor Robert  McDonnell announced the state would dedicate this month to those who represented the south in the Civil War. McDonnell said that he wanted to observe those that fought in the Civil War and celebrate the state’s rich history in the war, which would in turn encourage tourism. The question then becomes was their cause noble enough to dedicate an entire month to? My answer is a resounding no.

            First and foremost, the south lost. Being the runner up in a race of two may be ok if you’re on say American Idol, but in the real world no. Second, the south was basically fighting to defend slavery. All this talk about the war starting because of unfair taxation, states vs. federal rights and differences between political parties is more or less a facade. Bottom line is slavery had a positive impact on the economy in the south. All the probelms between the north and the south stemmed from views on slavery. Slavery was pretty much the worst thing to happen in our country so why should we commemorate those that fought to keep such a practice?

            In closing I’d like to say if that’s your history and YOUR history and YOU want to celebrate those from the south, then have at it, but to declare an entire month be dedicated to them is absolutely inane. And that’s just how I’m feelin…
