I can’t see that this is the entire story. It doesn’t fit with all the things that were going on at the time and this is a bad rap on the South.

While we're used to getting a "bad rap" in the South, it really is quite old and tiresome.
You wouldn't know it by the "ignorant southerner" stereotypes hurled at us, but slavery was abolished close to 150 years ago, and--news flash to the slavery-obsessed!!--black people are actually free in the South, and they're treated quite well here.

It is not intended to be "the entire story", simply a listing of the most commonly seen Neo-Confederate myths, along with fact-based responses.
It is intended to forewarn and forearm readers who might encounter these myths in life, or on other FR threads.
So you say, "this is a bad rap on the South"?
Can you quote some examples of what you consider a "bad rap"?

Sadly, a bad rap on the southern insurrection is deserved.
