Great post. My family is Scottish also. Pretty sure I would be 100% accurate to say that throughout history far more white people have suffered at the end of a noose than black. Not even remotely close. As for AU Rex's comment on Robert E Lee, and the Confederate battle flag being viewed as as symbol of racism, and terrorism, it's because the American population has been misinformed with lies, and propaganda. I would remind all that the very same so called Union liberators turned their attention to murdering, and subjecting the Red Man soon after they supposedly liberated the Black man. It's hogwash plain, and simple. No, actually what they did was subjugate the southern population, both white, and black, and caused monetary suffering for members of both races for over 100 years. Then, turned their attention to the genocide of the red race.
