    Some simple facts:

    2.1 million Northern Union "crackers" mobilized to fight for Equality and the end of slavery in the Civil War (that's 11.6 Northern men that fought for each enslaved person).

    303,356 Union "crackers" gave their lives for Equality and Freedom and Justice during the Civil War.

    There were 180,000 enslaved at the time of the Civil War. (Perspective: One third to one half the people in Times Square on any New Year's Eve.)

    Almost two Union soldiers per slave died fighting for slave's Freedom. (Reparations? Why? Did not the Union soldiers lives have value?)

    Countless Northerner "crackers" risked their lives to provide safe havens and tunnels to Freedom in order to help those who were escaping Tyranny.

    White men do not bestow rights.

    God grants rights and creates men who will fight to keep and preserve them.

    Who has forgotten? Who is worthy of the lives that were given for them? Who has squandered their God given rights and who has embraced them?

    And who seeks 'retaliation' for that which is not a whole Truth?

    Who was it that said, "He who does not remember history is destined to repeat it."?

    Add to that, He who is foreign remembers nothing and comes with false baggage.

    Okay, now think of the taxpayer dollars that have been spent on repairing the wrong and setting things right from the first dollars spent on the Civil War on, to the 1960's and then on to the New Millineium on now to the First Black President and divide that number by 180,000.

    Or divide all the "special programs" and "incentives", social services etc. tax dollars spent on 'racism' and divide by the total "minority population" of the USA per year. How much does that come out to per 'minority person' per decade or per year?

    At what rate did the Minority population expand in America?

    Is it time to stop spending and dividing? We can not support all of Africa's immigrant population.

    Comparatively, how much was spent on Native Americans nationwide many of whom still live in the worse kind of poverty? How many Native Americans have degrees in their Native cultures and Biology degrees in the study of the lands where they live? How about Geology or Astronomy, Business or Medicine or other areas of interest?

    It would have been extremely noble of the 2+ million yankees to go to war for the purpose of freeing the slaves. Sounds a bit far fetched don't ya think?

    Many slaves took tunnels to Canada and never returned to the USA.
    Was shown slave tunnels up close and personal when a friend purchased a house with one.

    Yes. Noble is the word, to the last...

    In terms of population:

    African American US Population:

    2000: 36,419,434

    2010: 42,020,743 = 5,601,369 increase in population

    Native American:

    2000 4.1 million

    2010 5.2 million = 1.1 million increase in population


    In 1930 the minority African American population was @ 11.9 million while the Native American population was @ 350,000.

    In a hundred years or so, the U.S. will be another 3rd world country like those in Africa....

    Which numbers hmb? Took the numbers off a quick fact site. The number of 'enslaved' that fought were 180,000 which comes out to about 11 soldiers per the 'enslaved'. Some listed Union dead at 300,000 while I have 303,356.

    Not all blacks at the time of the Civil War were slaves. There were something like 344,000 free blackmen mostly up north at the time of the Civil War. Unknown how many fought.

    On the census, Native Americans were not accounted for until 1930. Some prior to that were counted as 'colored' on some censuses.

    The estimate I used from 1930 for number of Native Americans was an estimated used by Teddie Roosevelt from an article I read.

    Thanks. I misread the blue total. Corrected. It's still a huge ten year increase in population for a 'poverty stricken' minority..Life must be good in the United States...

    Strange. I thought the Civil War was fought to keep the Confederate States from succeeding from the Union. The Emancipation was just a tool Lincoln used to defeat the South. I guess we have different textbooks up North.

    If you ask, most people with a quick response would say that the Civil War was fought to free the slaves. The rest was just the hows and whys.

    Comment:


    Most recently I heard that black as used above was the new offensive term with chocolate or brown being preferred. I don't know... so rather than having the point misconstrued for using the wrong terminology, I used only African American as being the majority ancestory.

    'Reverse racism' term has been around since the nineteen seventies when most racism was thought to be directed white to black however with the protests and 'panther' activity in the cities in the seventies the term 'reverse' was coined.

    Also, there are many African Americans who are seen frequently in the local cities who not only dress in their native costumes but speak in African languages as well. More in the past five years or so.

    (Also see Orientals carrying bags on a stick slung over their shoulders. Quite a common sight with pointy straw hats).

    Some people need to get out more to see the results of immigration. :) But that's another thread.

    In a few hundred years or so "race" will be a word with not much meaning. Racial purity is disappearing quickly with the generations. For good or bad this is the gods truth. Bill
