Today, I met you on the street in Black Mountain. I asked you how a black man could carry the Confederate flag. You answered that it was your heritage and gave me your card. I visited your website and while I have not been thorough, I saw many defenses of the Confederacy that stated that slavery was a minor issue in the war.

Please read the Mississippi articles of secession at this link. This puts the protection of African slavery front and center as the reason for seceding. Other Confederate states documents are quite similar.

Thanks for speaking with me. You have much to be proud of.
