Joe, 11/29/2007 - 8:50am "This was absolutely the worst, most biased article
I have ever read in UTW. Where to begin?
First of all, negroes were not "enslaved" by whites or the "Five Civilized Tribes". The original breeding stock consisted of tribal warfare captives bought in Africa from native dealers. The members of the Five Civilized Tribes bought their slaves and other cattle from from whites---they did not "enslave" negroes.
Then we have the bit about the "very aggressive Ku Klux Klan". What did that have to do with a Negro sexually assaulting a teenage elevator operator? Then after the suspect is jailed, a gang of armed blacks threatens a group of unarmed whites at the courthouse. But naturally, the whites are to blame. Do you suppose if the sexual assault hadn't happened, that if the blacks had let the law deal with the situation,
that the riot might not have happened?
It takes extreme provocation to cause white people to riot. Although this article was very much slanted in one direction, it is still obvious that the provocation was there."
