One thought on “More

  1. Although the “Lost Cause” had been around since the end of the Civil War it reemerged in a big way between 1917 and 1925.

    Between 1917 and 1925 White Nationalist Supremacists erected hundreds of Confederate statues in the US.
    In 1921 the racists burned and bombed the black area of Tulsa to the ground and killed hundreds of black people in the process.
    Genocidal attacks like those in Tulsa occurred all across the South.
    Black lynchings happened all across the US.
    The largest KKK rally ever held was held in Washington DC in 1925.

    And then we had the Scopes Monkey Trial in 1925.
    Scopes was found guilty of teaching evolution to impressionable little children and fined $100; although the verdict was later reversed.

    Today we have the Critical Race Theory on trial.
    The same racists, backward thinking, Evangelical Christian zealots who brought us the Scopes Monkey Trial will soon bring us the CRT to trial.

    The more things change the more they remain the same.
