Maeve Magdalen - 11/3/2010 Status Comment I have been listening to the mainstream media as they talk politics today, and hear them structure their arguments to continue the strife. I take joy in conservative media, which cuts through the self-serving nonsense and speaks truly of solutions. Listening to the liberal judges, I hear the same murky, self-serving, divisive nonsense. And then with HK, there is truth that those of us who have [...]

Blacks Who Support Black Confederate Mythology Nov 1 2010 There's a good conversation going in this thread on black lay historians who support the myth of black Confederates.
