    Once again, slavery was maybe 50% of the argument for succession . . . you've decided to demonize an entire culture due to a portion of its past. There is no (open) call for slavery from confederates, but they do openly do emphize the other aspects.

    I personally think it hypocracy if you* don't like something you* emphasise the worse aspects of it


or, someone could not like something because of the worse aspect of it. i don't necessarily think that's hypocracy, unless you don't like one thing because of the bad aspect but like something else despite its bad aspect. and even in that it depends on the degree of badness of its bad aspect. for a lot of people slavery is as bad as you can get.

    *not an accusation, but i'm using "you" in the impersonal sense, its human nature to make things into easily defined bites
