the civil war should properly be called the white supremists war. the only way they got states to vote for the csa was by excluding the black population from voting. the black population was more than forty per cent in some central southern states--but they were slavers.
anyone who says that the civil was was about anything other than slavery and white supremist racism is a hard core racist. was the modern tragedy is the hard core racists have successfully spun the issues so almost no one talks about the fact that thirty to forty five percent of the population couldn't vote.
there was no fight for local rights, only a fight for white supremist rights
