The news is full of the Black Lives Matter, LGBT or KKK or the white supremacist movements. I’m so tired of all these groups and what offends them. If you are a normal, non-racist white person, you have no rights to demand things, because then you are a racist. I was born and raised in the state of Texas, and regardless of what some people think, it is part of the south. Actually you can’t get much further south, unless you are in Mexico. I’ve had a rebel flag most of my adult life. I don’t look at it as being a sign of racism. It is a symbol of the south from the Civil War.
The Civil War was not fought over slavery, it actually came up because of a tariff on goods where the south wound up paying triple the amount the north was paying or something close to that amount. The southern states succeed from the Union because of this. It did not start over slavery. Again, read your history books.
Also, there are no African Americans living or whites living that were slaves or owned slaves. If you check your history, one of the largest slave owners was an African American, not a white man.
And can someone explain to me how kids or teenagers are involved in these kinds of movements. They can’t even figure out how to dress themselves most of the time, but they can tell that they are being treated unfairly… please give me a break.
Illegal immigration is another thing I tired of hearing about. I don’t care what color you are, where you are from or how you got here, but if you want to stay, then do what is necessary to become a national, or come here on a visa. Don’t come to this country and expect handouts, we have enough people here legally that already think they are entitled to all kinds of freebies and don’t try to abide by the rules of being adults and living in the real world.
I’m sure this will piss off some people, but I don’t really care any more. I’m a white american, from the south and I don’t believe statues from my history should be torn down or put away so not to offend anyone. I’ve never own slaves, I’ve always worked my entire life and raised a daughter on my own, without food stamps, wic, or ssi or any of that other stuff that people automatically think they are entitled to from the government.
I’m off the soap box and if you are going to be hateful with comments, don’t bother.
Have a great day!
