John, Thanks for the information, I had never heard of the Corwin amendment either.

This woman is rather ignorant of history to blame the Confederate States or the south for slavery. Has she never heard of the Corwin amendment to the US Constitution for example? It was adopted by the northern controlled US Congress in March 1861 by the required supermajority, submitted to the states for ratification, and endorsed in his first Inaugural Address by Abraham Lincoln. The Corwin amendment would have enshrined slavery in the US Constitution and made it impossible to abolish from the national level. That was what the NORTH proposed in March 1861. Then there is the question of who was responsible for bringing the slaves over here. After a brief period when it was run from Bristol, England, the trans-Atlantic slave trade bringing slaves to North America was operated out of the New England states. That's right. It was the northerners who brought the slaves over. There are no recorded instances of slave trading ships based in the southern colonies or southern states. If anyone has to pay reparations, it should be the New England states because it was people from there who bought the slaves in Africa from black tribesmen like the Ashanti and transported them to North America.
