    Another look at how history has become incredibly skewed. Nothing is ever really as it seems!!!!
    "Abraham Lincoln was not the Great Emancipator: he was the Great Warmonger and Imperialist, the Great Racist, the Great Taxer-and-Spender, the Great Corruptionist, the Great Incarcerator and the Great Vandal of the Constitution."
    Your thoughts on the so-called Emancipator.......http://www.quebecoislibre.org/08/080815-2.htm

    In the spirit of the late historian leroy bennett, I would say that linoln was a man
    "forced into glory". Abe was what/who he was supposed to be: a man who
    first and foremost was about doing what is best for white people.. to that
    that degree, come to think, I'd say he was was honest. the dishonesty rest
    largely on the 'keepers' of the lincoln legacy who wanted to create lincoln
    in their own imagination. It is their hero, so they are free to paint whatever
    picture of him they feel is most inspiring.


    If we had our schools, controlled the curriculum I am sure that 'skewed history'
    of linoln, you know, 'the rest of the story' would be common knowledge among
    black folk.

    So who should I owe my freedom to? Answer: Ms. economic disagreement
