I agree with most of this but more to the point the 18oos “political & cultural” landscape was similar over much of the globe, regardless of location there was not much difference concerning racial outlook, similar to our present-in the moment-view of things, so it would at least seem at best unfair to parcel out one State to heap or lay\take the blame to, though that is the general course of matters because it is easier to attack that way, therefore when writers of history come along later they may inadvertently Skew left or right, or their writings will result in a skewing that is similar to film and media showing about five events in the South as the only story(ies) and therefore represent the only defining moments in the library of what could be labeled our Racial learning curve, resulting in the overwhelming amount of public opinion of how bad it is in the American South. Believe me I know, been hearing it all my life, over and over and over. Results, violence and discord were strong well north of Alabama, separation based on Ethnicity is practiced in all cultures and always has been thruout recorded history.
But sure the White Man mentality is there, is here, always has and always will be, like who would expect people with more to just give away what they have earned or inherited? Hmmm, makes me wonder about the former residents in Palestine, the ones who helped those poor unfortunate Jews left on the beaches like Flotsam and Jetsam, who fed the poor then in return were forced from their homes, forced to abandon lands they had lived on for generations… Now that is a hard one to explain away, regardless of the last 70 years, so therefore it is time for new and unadulterated , modern avenues of thought to lead the way to what we would all hope may result in Peaceful long lasting Resolution for this contradictory\contested area.
I agree whole heartedly, whether visiting, reading of Israel, viewing videos and documentaries, my suspicions are raised as to what is the real picture, what is really going on in Israel. Now that Internet users have matured, people are finding ways to bring about change thru non-violent means, resulting in changes in how changes are brought about, and it is these uncontrollable changes which have the old guard concerned.
As well they should be, imagine if your Elected Representative were made to work at least 40 hours per week, could not hide behind a smoke screen of verbal bullshit and Sunday school ideology, oh the horrors if we were not guided by those misguided captains of industry & otherwise, yet it appears at times the Captains of the Ship(s) are not qualified, and when we discover this upon running aground, when the People really find this to be the case, perhaps they will not allow themselves to be forced Left and Right by the tried and true measures of creating Fears, well-placed fears at opportune times, like Puppets on a String, tossed to and fro amidst the waves…
