Re: “Recruiting Hate

Mr Rodriquez, I recommend you research the term ethnicity which I posted and as a matter of fact there are hundreds of thousands of Confederate Americans in this country who peacefully do everything they can to be good citizens, while being chastized with prejudice and hate for ignorance by other ethnic groups. HATE IS COLOR, AND CULTURE BLIND ALL OF HUMANITY SUFFERS FOR IT.

Re: “Recruiting Hate

No Mr. Watson you are mistaken and have no understanding of that war,

It was the abolitionist who were terrorist John Brown, Frederick Douglas, Charles Sumner, who deliberately supported threatening and attacking fellow Americans. Inciting rebellions, and murder. It was the Union army who were terrorist that raped, pillaged and burned. It was Abe Lincoln who in fact was a racist who instigated the war and tyranny. If you spit that is assault, so try it, and see what happens! Why in fact you are instigating hate and fear that would make you a terrorist.

Re: “Recruiting Hate

Navia:

ethnicity |ɛθˈnɪsɪti|
noun ( pl. ethnicities ) [ mass noun ]
the fact or state of belonging to a social group that has a common national or cultural tradition: the interrelationship between gender, ethnicity, and class | [ count noun ] : the diverse experience of women of different ethnicities.

Confederate Americans can and have been identified as a distinct ethnic group of Americans in numerous studies, periodicals, publications, etc. . .

Re: “Recruiting Hate

For the record: There was a Confederacy, the Confederate States of America. Any descendent of those who were Confederate Americans is inherently also a Confederate American. As justified as much as any other minority in the equal right to share in the diversity of politically correct labeling as any other American i.e. African American, Native American, Jewish, Italian, German, Chinese, Japanese, etc. . . The purpose is simple either we are a nation bound on truth or on hypocrisy, either we share all rights equally, in our inherent natural rights for our own self determination or we are subjugated by those who would dictate who and what we are. On another point Confederate Americans are certainly as much a minority, as any other ethnicity can be labeled so. Navia look at your own statement: “Again, ALL of the Confederate movements (supremacists or not) are inherently hateful and exclusive of others whether you choose to acknowledge or not. I'm not saying your neighborhood Confederate group likes to get together and plot to commit crimes against minorities, but really evaluate the purpose of the movement itself.” Your latter comment is a perfect example of general ignorance regarding Confederate American affiliations as “inherently hateful and exclusive of others.” According to your statement you share a very inaccurate stereotypical view of Confederate Americans which is 89.9% of the problem, the other 10.1% includes the supremacist who are just as oblivious to the subject. There is no song and dance, no zippity doo daa day around the slavery issue, but that is another discussion. This discussion is regarding the white supremacist stereotype which has nothing to do with the Confederacy. When people allow a group to perpetuate the distortion and misrepresentation of symbolism with the ignorance of supremacist ideologies. They are as guilty as the haters themselves for encouraging the association with that symbolism. Symbols only have the power that we allow them too! The Confederate flag is not a a symbol of hate it is representative of a peoples identity, of an absolute distinctive American ethnicity. A Southern ethnicity, as Confederate Americans, who have shared equally in the sufferings, and accomplishments of this nation. Until Americans and the peoples of this world learn to appreciate the diversity of all peoples, the hate will continue to manifest. Because of ignorance and the lack of humility to be tolerant to learn from each other and share in the stewardship of our world.

Re: “Recruiting Hate

There is no need for a monument specifically to humanity there are millions of monuments already through their deeds and not all were so ennobled. The earth is a living monument and symbol and humanity needs to be more caring of what we are doing to it. If you want a human rights memorial put it in front of the UNITED NATIONS, not Arlington!

Re: “Recruiting Hate

I understand what you said, the article states your desire to replace Gen. Lee's monument with a human rights monument!
