    How do you know anything about me or my environment? You’re guessing and using your opinion as fact. I served in the military which is the perfect example of diversity, there is no other organization that is more diverse or less racially motivated than the Marines. The color of a person’s skin has nothing to do with whether I talk to them, see them, approach them, or anything else. What part of our system specifically targets black people?

    yes, black lives do matter, but the Black Lives Matter organization is a proven violent and racist organization. Your attempt to cloud the two, one being a statement and the other being an organization, is as disingenuous as you can get.

    The Brown Shirts have more in common with the alt-left.

    yes, that is absolutely the only thing about you, someone who implicitly endorsed a lost cause of the south ideology and used this as an analogy for nazi germany, that makes you come across as a nazi

    It may very well have been considering the blatant racism.

    That is all fine and nice, so you are saying racism isn't wrong because black people sold themselves out? It is all ok because black people did it. You are incorrect, and I think that was obvious.

    It has not been proven so. So please do not spout that as fact as it is the opinion of fake news sources.

    I think we could say that the Confederacy was not as bad as the Nazis, but slavery was, especially as it went on for hundreds of years. The Confederacy fought to preserve slavery, which makes them pretty bad. How certain southerners cannot see why they shouldn't put up or have up statues of Confederate leaders, who represent the desire to preserve slavery, is beyond understanding. Southern states have a high percentage of black Americans, and having statues that show value to Confederate leaders is showing a respect for someone who wanted to preserve slavery. A slap in the face, to say the least, to black Americans.

    Sorry, but communists do not interest me. Communism was DOA the moment it was born and it has wrought untold misery upon our world.
    I'll stick with Capitalism with sensible controls, thank you.

    I’m trying to have an honest discussion about racism, while you are using one sided opinions as “facts” to be disingenuous and cloud the issue

    Yes, it has. You clearly have no intention of having a fair discussion

    What an incredibly stupid question! The South did not exterminate 6 million people! yes, it was our bloodiest war as was the case in all civil wars in history! To try to compare anyone to Hitler, or the Nazis is ludicrous, unless you are talking about Stalin, Mao, etc.!

    What you were trying to do is use your status as a marine to intimidate and make you right. It is however quite ineffective and you really had nothing else to say. Would you like to add to your statement now, or do we just keep doing this?

    No the south did exterminate quite a number of black slaves, and they kept the living as animals. You are not making much sense, but thank you for your statement.

    I'll repeat what I said earlier --

    You cannot ever do a side by side comparison of institutionalized acts of brutality -- it's impossible and futile --
    as for myself, though, I will say I would rather die than be a chattel slave with zero rights for my entire life, my entire family, and have generation, after generation, after generation, after generation, after generation, after generation of this persist, with little hope of freedom.

    As the famous Rev War General John Stark said: "Live Free or Die. There are some things worse than death."

    You think it even comparable? You believe the Confederate states had a plan to exterminate blacks? REALLY? And you do know that slavery was legal in the UNITED STATES for almost 100 years, was legal throughout the Civil War and was even legal AFTER the Civil War.

    The South exterminate black slaves which were a valuable asset to the owner? What about the Northern slave states did they also exterminate black slaves?
