Memorial to 1862 Draft Attacked by Mob in NC
There was a draft in 1862.
You had to fight.
If you refused, you went to prison or your house was burnt to the ground.
It didn’t matter if you owned slaves or not.
The North owned slaves, two years into the Civil war.
There were five slave markets, on our National Mall.
The North attacked the South first.
Slavery was legal in Islamic Kuwait until 1949.
Slavery was legal in Islamic Qatar, until 1950.
Slavery was legal in Islamic Saudi Arabia and Yemen, until 1962.
Slavery was legal in Islamic Oman, until 1970.
Slavery was legal in Islamic Sudan and Mauritania, Africa, until 1981.
Stop blaming only the South.
You sound stupid.

Protesters tear down Confederate statue in Durham, North Carolina
A female protester in Durham climbed the statue on a ladder around 7 p.m. Monday. She attached a rope around the statue, and the crowd pulled it to the ground.
The Confederate statue was dedicated to Durham back in 1942. Engraved on the front of the monument reads: “The Confederate States of America.”
One man quickly ran up to spit on the statue. Several others began kicking it. Protesters continued marching, while some posed with the broken statue.
