Folks -

This is  a valid topic for intellectual discourse. What it cannot become is a forum for racial stereotypes. Talk of "welfare blacks" and "black drug dealers" have nothing to do with the topic at hand.

I would be curious to know if the people who claim the effects of slavery are no longer relevent feel the same way about the war in general. Is there anyone who really believes that that 4 year event did not shape the South as it exists today on a myriad of levels? If you believe that a four-year event shaped what we see today, you can't possibly believe that a 400-year one didn't. The effects of both are still visible.

BTW 54th, welcome to the board.
