Abraham Lincon owned slaves for himself at his wifes request.

What does that tell you America?

The South nearly had the Civil War won:

Whats that tell you America?

The ecomomy of the United States was in shambles after the Civil War just like today:

What does that tell you America?

Next year at this same time just ask yourself  is the United States better off or worse because of a "black man."

Then ask what does that tell you American?

President Lincoln should have followed his first instinct and sent the freed black slaves back to Africa.  This is not to be harsh, but that would have been best for all concerned.  That is where they came from, the life they like and identify with and would have saved the blacks and whites a whole heck of a lot of grief.  Why in God's name blacks in this country are not thrilled that they are here rather than in some African slum is amazing.


I agree with another above...I love being white and sorry for the rest of you.

Every month is White History Month.  You write the books  remember>
Martin Luther King was a whore hopping piece of ****.....  He had whores, white and black brought ot his room by his Jew handlers and advisors and after rough sex he would beat them severely and throw them out the door on the sidewalk.  The police knew it, the FBI knew it and it was covered up at the time to prevent the nig----ers from rioting and burning the city down...  He was the scum of the  earth and that's why his wife had his records from the FBI sealed for fifty years and the schools keep pumping this nig---er **** into our kids like he's a f---king hero.  It makes me mad as hell.  And all you white nig--er lovers are to blame for kissing their asses!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
F__K  black history month......................
They can celebrate in hell as far as I'm concerned!  We we're a lot better off before integration and forced busing.  The nigs have ruined everything they touch!!  I would love for them all to have gone back to Africa after the civil war.  They we're offered paid transportation and money and provisions for six months if they would agree to go back, but few agreed and accepted since they knew they had it better here even in slavery!!  This is rarely mentioned in the media or curriculum in schools.  They as a group are devoid of any decency or honesty......I wish people could realize how f---ked we are with them here!!!
