Chaos.Those who want to be liberal like and want to challenge the tradition of the area and the american culture [ it was an american culture, was it not the social and economic system in place there?] .

Another cause of the killing was the ungrateful children of former slaves was in violation of NT stuff to obey the authorities . Can't violate that ancient book can we?

Under the confederacy we had law and order, a good economic system of slave ownership with even laws and bankers loaning money on slave owernship.

Thank the deity that the founding fathers were conservative men and did not do violence to the tradition and culture and laws of law and order of England . Some called them thugs and those who would incite riots and disrupt the peace. Yes, they were men of valor who were willing to wait for a hundred years for things to change.

A christian state, with a christian culture who christian men acted to protect the venerated system that made illegal slavery legal by proper use of code language and this is just the way it is.

Of course thank the deity the survivors said, at least the whites didn't use airplanes to attack and massacre the blacks as they did in Tulsa.
