    You're analogy doesn't make sense. My statement was that its wrong to say the Civil War was not about slavery based on the fact a majority of southerners didn't own slaves.

    Did "all" southerners believe in the institution of slavery...no. Did "most" believe in it....yes. Have a read at the Declarations of Secession. Or Stephen's "African Slavery, The Cornerstone of the Southern Confederacy". I don't know about you but that pretty much sums it up. Although who listens to Vice presidents.

    Or when near the end of the war when the South initiated the idea of black regiments many argued that if they are given such status and freedom for serving that nulifies what they were fighting for. Some good quotes "One politician asked, “What did we go to war for, if not to protect our property?” Another suggested, “If slaves will make good soldiers, our whole theory of slavery is wrong.” Lee weighed in on the issue and asked the Confederate government for help. “We must decide whether slavery shall be extinguished by our enemies and the slaves be used against us, or use them ourselves.” Lee asked that the slaves be freed as a condition of fighting, but the bill that passed the Confederate Congress on March 13, 1865,did not stipulate freedom for those who served."

    Many believed slavery to be ordained by God since its condoned in the Bible and if God wished to end slavery he would do so. Famously Lee and Jackson fall into that category.

    Were all Germans nazis....no. it was a politial party not an institution.

    This thread is about player behavior in-game - not a historical discussion on slavery.

    please keep it on-topic.

    True that, Trusty.

    Played Insurgency Sandstorm last night and a guy was yelling the N word for a full half hour.

    No escaping idiots.

    Can we please let this thread die. 8 pages In and no new ground has been broken. It's the Internet, people are going to say all kinds of things. The devs don't need to be the thought police when they have much more important things to worry about. Acting like this is some unique problem to a game that you can play as 19th century southerners is silly. And theres people here pretending it is just so they can feel all high and mighty. Just mute who you don't want to hear.
