1. Their capacity for discrimination stops short of sussing the difference between fact and fiction.

3. We have relatives on both sides

Who have made very similar comments and if they were famous people, their thoughts would be posted right on there since they are similar. The best one yet is from a relative who also claims slaves loved being slaves and brags about an ancestor who owned people. I'd hang my head in shame and hope no one ever found out.

7. Did you see the episode of that sort of "Who Are You" genetic detective show that featured Anderson

Cooper? I wasn't really paying close attention until it was too late, but he was mortified that he had a slave-owning ancestor. He didn't gush, but as I remember, he had words of praise for a slave that rose up and killed the ancestor with a hoe or a shovel.

5. OK, Karma: do your thing!

If not in this lifetime, perhaps they can be reincarnated as people living in servitude. Then, ask them if their masters love them, and take good care of them and their families.

13. Nothing New

Sadly, the statements shown in the above graphic are nothing new. Statements like the ones listed in the graphics above have been made for years by Southerners and Republicans. During the time of Jim Crow, many white Southerners claimed that all the unrest about black people voting and segregation was just Northerners coming to the South and causing problems. White Southerners claimed that blacks loved the system just the way it was then structured. I assume very few of those people actually asked black people how they felt about the system in the South. In recent years, numerous republicans have made comments similar to those made by Martha Huckaby. Numerous Republicans at different conventions have defended slavery and slave owners by saying slave owners provided African slaves with food, clothes, and housing.
