    EDIT: I'll throw this in H/A too.
    Isn't the fact that black people were slaves for life while white people were endured servants who got their freedom and a plot of land after 10 years proof enough? The CSA's constitution calling blacks inferior to whites, and the ensuring Civil War the South fought to keep blacks slaves. The KKK that started in the South after it lost the Civil War with the explicit purpose of keep blacks down? Segregation? 3/5th of a person? Supreme Court ruling that a black man really was property of a white man?

    I still find it funny that the KKK's original intentions were to drive out Republicans and put Democrats back into power in the south.

    No. I'm looking for popular arguments and official documents. The CSA's constitution doesn't, I think, call blacks inferior to whites, it just mentions slavery.

    Actually, specifically, I'm looking for popular arguments and official documents showing that The South considered blacks to be subhuman.

    Well it doesn't just mention slavery, it explicitly mentions negro slavery. From the Confederate constitution:
    Sec. 9. (I) The importation of negroes of the African race from any foreign country other than the slaveholding States or Territories of the United States of America, is hereby forbidden; and Congress is required to pass such laws as shall effectually prevent the same.
    ARTICLE IV
    Sec. 3.
    (3) The Confederate States may acquire new territory; and Congress shall have power to legislate and provide governments for the inhabitants of all territory belonging to the Confederate States, lying without the limits of the several Sates; and may permit them, at such times, and in such manner as it may by law provide, to form States to be admitted into the Confederacy. In all such territory the institution of negro slavery, as it now exists in the Confederate States, shall be recognized and protected be Congress and by the Territorial government; and the inhabitants of the several Confederate States and Territories shall have the right to take to such Territory any slaves lawfully held by them in any of the States or Territories of the Confederate States.

    It's Obs trying to troll me

    He registered one as ender wiggin last night and sent me a PM saying that "Oh man I'm gonna troll you now you should have accepted my apology"

    And then I forwarded it to Elki and Will and got it banned

    The best part is the one in the politics thread is actually the name I registered with (which is why he used it)

    I guess what I'm trying to say is that any obvious alts with Ender's Game names are Obs

    I would kill for a good packet of biscuits right now, but the missus is away and I am taking the opportunity to sit around and stink. Outside means showering and dressing, and right now those things would intefere with my intricate plan to be lazier than my cats.
