Quote# 7797

Slavery. African Americans benifited from this, greater society did not. The southern economy was devistated for years and years afterwards. Not to mention the thousands of people who died in the civil war which was, in part, a result of trying to make slavery illegal. It was a good thing that we ended slavery, but it was not good for the society. According to what you are saying, we shouldnt have ended slavery.

Slavery benefited African Americans?

I would very much like to hear your definition of 'benefit'

He's actually talking about how abolishing slavery benefited African Americans. He's essentially implying that African Americans aren't part of society.

Ah, I misunderstood. Now it makes more sense, but it still makes him look dumb.

No worries. He also makes himself look like a racist fuckwit by implying that African Americans are second class citizens because they are not 'part of greater society'. What a wanker.

Well, even if he is a bigot he has given an accurate picture. Actually the reason why is and was so poor is because they didn´t come forward in trying to industrialise the place, which means more slavery, of course.
