See, my question is not about what one party or the other "thinks" caused the Civil War. That's a complex question.
My question is as follows: Do you still view the South as a source of hatred and bigotry? Based upon some folks' emotional responses to this post, I worry that I may be discriminated against for the actions of people over a century ago. It makes me a little nervous moving around this forum, thinking that my posts may not be taken seriously. Someone joked that "the South still hasn't recovered." I get the impression that people think we're all plantations and Spanish moss down here.
Well, I work in Huntsville, AL, the premier source of aerospace technology in the United States- which is, herself, a leader in aerospace. I live just south of Nashville, TN, a source for the arts and independent music (the South is always claiming independence
). My home is beautiful, and her people are friendly. I don't mind the debate over the Civil War and its causes, but do we have to slam the modern South?
Secondly, it's official name isn't "The Civil War"? Who knew? Is there some government record somewhere with the "real" name?
