I would suggest that your argument that Neo Confederates are the reason behind the short history that I posted or that the Neo Confederates are the ones who promote the idea that somehow blacks were a significant numbers among the slaveholders of the South is ridiculous, (your words) .. I would suggest that you take it up with the writer of the history (and one of my former professors).

Unlike liberals, I don't give special credence to what someone says because of their color. The idea that there was some large class of slave holding blacks in the South before the Civil War is asinine. The idea that they had any effect on the politics of the South is foolish. That there was the occasional black slaveholder is understandable. Given the laws of the time on Manumission it was often easier - and less dangerous - to hold family members as slaves than it was to free them. Free slaves - or free persons in the North for that matter - faced the danger of being kidnapped into slavery. Slave stealing, OTOH was a major crime in the South. Family members were safer as property. Freed slaves, who were the masters children - especially the female children, were sometimes left a few slaves and a small bit of property in the masters will. They were well aware of what would be the probable fate of an indigent black female, so they took steps to avoid that. And again, the fact that there were a few black slaveholders says absolutely nothing about the evil of the system or the moral fiber of those who supported it.

BTW, I haven't seen the movie yet, but I did read an interesting take on the film over at Breitbart's Big Hollywood:
http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Hollywood/2013/01/08/Django-Unchained-The-Most-Liberal-Film-of-2012
In the article, the writer points out that the real villain of the film is the Samuel L Jackson character, a house slave who has come to value his position more than freedom. Indeed according to the writer he hates freedom because it threatens that position.


What a wonderful analogy for a Government Employee!  :lol:
I've got good news and bad news:

The good news is the Republicans won the Senate and now control both houses of Congress.

As I've noted before, some slaves on the Dimocraptic plantation don't dream of freedom, but only of being promoted to overseer. Witness many black Dimocraptic congressmen.

I saw the film ( which was very long).  The Jackson character was among many villains, he was the slave that smelled out the plan to get Djangos wife away from the plantation.  His position was as good as he could have gotten at the time.   It's not as if he could quit and go find something else.

The House slaves received their positions because they placed the master's wishes and well being above their own and above that of their fellow slaves. It wouldn't do for a house slave to catch wind of an attempted escape, for example, as he would sell out the escapees in order to ingratiate himself with the master. There's a reason why, to this day, the term "House Ni**er" is a curse and an insult.

If I'm not mistake, that is the same invective that either Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpeton used to describe candidate Obama back in 2008.

As we used to say in the schoolyard: "Takes one, to know one". Their real complaint was that he was a "smoother" than they were, and liable to past them in the battle for the Master's (read Dimocraptic left's) favor. They couldn't compete. Here was someone who was infinitely better at their old game than they were. Strangely enough, although Obozo is literally ethnically African-American, culturally/socially/politically/educationally he's a white Leftist, with a good tan. The only time Obama even notices blacks, is when he needs to hide behind them.

Great little film.

Saw it last night.

I particularly enjoyed the spaghetti western imagery and soundtrack as well as Tarantino's signature way with dialog..

All in all, a good movie, but a little too long.
