  1. They were going along well until they started trying to use myths to dispel a myth. Of course you can't expect anything different from tv media...

  2. To what specific myths are you referring?

  3. just the difference between supremacy vs national or racialist/realist thinking. In my travels through the US, blacks don't seem to similar and don't integrate well. Also, a lot of leaders in various countries today still think along nationalistic lines somewhat, yet these guys are jumping around like it doesn't exist anywhere and it's the worst thing in the world. The other parts of the video were interesting though.

  4. I see. That certainly is a flaw, but it is a flaw embraced by liberals as well, who tend to lionize Lincoln for being "post-racial" or whatever when he obviously wasn't. Nor was he even a principled opponent of race-based slavery, as people often claim.
