America needs an open, honest dialogue on race relations. Some folks, including so called civil rights leaders, don't want an open, honest dialogue. They know that it just might heal old wounds, address unresolved issues and, God forbid, unite us. If this were to happen, they and they're racist cause would become obsolete. Let's talk America. Abe Lincoln, a Republican started the discussion 150 years ago. Somehow we got sidetracked by certain groups with ulterior motives.

You want honest dialogue? Lincoln was a member of the ILL and United States Colonization Societies. He wanted,and tried,to send Blacks back to another country.Anywhere but here.The missions kept failing.But he kept trying.He continued to appropriate money from Congress to keep the missions going. Hopefully by now you know that Abe's Emancipation Proc only freed the slaves in the rebellious states.Not 'border state slaves.Not Yankee state slaves.Not "Union Occupied Areas" slaves

Only where he had NO authority. Slavery ended with the 13th am. to the Constitution in Dec '65. See that date? 8 months AFTER Abe's death. Doesn't it seem "odd" that in a war "to end slavery" that the people fighting said war allow slavery to continue?Abe has no Southerners in Congress,he has one term and into another,and still allows slavery in areas that are under US control. Did ya know 6 months after Lincoln' EP that West VA enters the

when are you going to let go of your hate, VaSteve, and admit that a). People have changed, and b.) most 'white people' could give a crap what color you are as long as you deal with them with the character MLK would have hoped you'd develop by now. Quit blaming your problems on others.

WTF are you talking about? Blaming what problems? Are you able to understand my posts? I'm trying to educate people who, since the 1st grade, have been taught constant lies about Lincoln and the Union of the 1860's.I'm sorry if the truth about your hero upsets you. But if you are going to attack the messenger,then for Pete's sake stay on subject.
Liberals have leapt on the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Florida to push for the repeal of "stand your ground" laws and to demand tighter gun control. (MSNBC'S Karen Finney blamed "the same people who stymied gun regulation at every point.")

This would be like demanding more funding for the General Services Administration after seeing how its employees blew taxpayer money on a party weekend in Las Vegas.

We don't know the facts yet, but let's assume the conclusion MSNBC is leaping to is accurate: George Zimmerman stalked a small black child and murdered him in cold blood,...
