In other words, the South/rebels/Confederacy is/are eternally presented as hate/racism/genocide personified. Do facts indicate that the non-Southern states or the yankee people or the Union side in the unCivil War were in fact more so? Other threads indicate so, but I found non existed on this exact angle.
The latest hot quote via SHNV is most disconcerting:
<div style="color: rgb(102, 0, 0);">"In that part of the Union where the Negroes are no longer slaves, have
they become closer to whites? Everyone who has lived in the United States will
have noticed just the opposite. Race prejudice seems stronger in those states
that have abolished slavery than in those where it still exists, and nowhere is
it more intolerant than in those states where slavery was never known."</div>
